Perhaps they are afraid of some sort of nasty retribution, and rightfully so. But their, for the most part, silence on the matter has been deafening.

Her disrespect towards him continues even after he confronts this woman; a palpable example of the mentality behind these slanders and lunatic outbursts. Let's hope Jewish-Americans will follow his example and not let these assholes continue to spew their hateful nonsense with impugnity.
