Dear J Street Protesters, C’mon – you can do better than that! You decide to go with the swastika – arguably one of the best pieces of repurposed graphic design in the last 75 years, and surely one of the most charged and taboo, and you get it dead wrong. Pencil thin? What happened – your copy of Printshop wasn’t working? You couldn’t find a bigger marker? Seriously, mixed messaging aside, we don’t mean to harp, but you were prepared to spend all day outside, hell – maybe even get arrested, and you only spent three minutes on your sign? Is that supposed to be a combination of the J Street arrow logo and a swastika? Brilliant! But hire a graphic designer my man – get it right! You look lame! You aren’t even trying. Moreover, when is the last time you guys protested something? Location, location, location. You are facing away from the hotel towards high speed traffic. You think that Honda doing 45 can read your wimpy swatiskas? Did it occur to you to call a few friends and get a permit for the prime real estate around the corner? (We’re not even going to tell you where, ’cause you definitely don’t deserve it.) We don’t even feel like giving you this much attention. Maybe we’ll delete this post, although its not like the photo op is going to help you considering how badly you failed at swastika drawing.

Anyway, speaking of lame, there weren’t too many of you. On Tuesday, you collectively (?) decided to stay at home cause it was raining. You went from swastikas to "Oy, it’s raining today. Maybe we should stay in and eat soup."

Good luck! Jewcy P.S. What does it mean that 1,500 people (Jews, Palestinians, Christians) show up to this conference, and 35,000+ watch it live online, and you’re the only protesters that show? Is J Street the mainstream? Do they need more protesters? Do you need a copy of "Protesting for Dummies"?
