Are you fucking kidding me? Did we all just wake up in 1938?
Remember how everyone thought it was so ridiculous and uneducated of Tumblr users to think that those people were Nazis and now it looks like they might very well be nazis, amazing
Looks more like a revival of the progroms than the nazis
Just want to update the situation here, because I’m an adult and do web searches for up to date news on things.
It looks like this was either a hoax or an extortion scheme, and the majority of the Jewish population have nothing to fear with regards to this (well, except from the crappy situation that everyone has to fear in Eastern Ukraine).
For one, the original news story was published in what appears to be a small small news site akin to the National Inquirer, and was then bounced around American media because we justifiably react very negatively to this type of thing. The second flag is that these were signed by the Donetsk People’s Republic - the crazy separatists that barred themselves inside a government building and want to be part of Russia and have no power beyond that building and plaza they’re occupying. Third flag is that similar flyers were distributed to businessmen and international students demanding money.
The new theory is that this was a slapped-together attempt to make some quick cash for these separatist groups, but one that seems to have failed pretty hard.
