I didn’t feel particularly heroic though. I was very close by when those jerks were mobbing that guy with the Israeli flag, and I hung back. I wanted to show support for him, but I also didn’t want to draw too much attention to myself. And it’s hard to take action when there’s a dozen masked people hooting all around you.
All I know is that I won’t hate someone just because someone tells me to hate them.
This is an excellent policy. I wish more people had the basic humanity to follow it.
