Okay, let’s patiently walk through this one by one:
1. Yes, six-pointed stars can be used in non-anti-Semitic contexts, but the covers of those Frozen sticker books never appeared on Neo-Nazi websites.
2. There is no 2 because the first one seems like a PRETTY IMPORTANT POINT.
Trump has refused to acknowledge that his image came from a Twitter user who also tweeted a Hillary Clinton swastika collage, and that it ended up on a Neo-Nazi message board.
When a six-pointed star is used in that context, that is anti-Semitism. When it is used on a children’s sticker book, it is not. This is simple logical thinking.
Just let it go already, man.

Do you want to build a strawman? https://t.co/AoeNTJOGpo
