Victim-blaming du jour.

This is, verbatim, what I just posted to feminist_rage:

Oh, heebmagazine. Usually I love your snarky ironic hipster take on the world, but today's post just makes me want to scream.

It's about the recent murder of Wesleyan College student Johanna Justin-Jinich by former classmate and deranged anti-Semite Stephen Morgan. Their link to the google news article refers to Justin-Jinich as Morgan's "ex-girlfriend." Even a cursory glance at the article should clue them in to the fact that she did not date Morgan but rather was stalked by him.

I suppose I could ignore that as just sloppy research, but the last paragraph of their post is what got me fuming: "The tragedy is sure to have an impact on Jewish girls everywhere, whose grandmothers now have a new guilt-inducting [sic] cautionary tale about what can happen when you date outside the tribe."


The price for dating a non-Jew is death? Did Justin-Jinich get what she deserved then? Nevermind that she didn't actually date him (and, in fact, contacted the NYC cops about his harassing emails and calls). But apparently the schmuck bloggers at heebmagazine think that a Jewish woman getting murdered is -- tee hee -- fodder for Jewish grandmothers to make sure that their granddaughters marry Jews.

Here's a thought: How about you get mad at the dickwad anti-Semite who drove from another state to kill a Jewish woman he barely even knew, instead of using the tragedy to make a fucking JOKE about Jewish grandmothers? This douchebag (clarification: Morgan, not the blogger) writes "I think it [sic] okay to kill Jews" and rather than go on a righteous rant, you make a snarky jab at the victim? What the fuck is wrong with you???
