Nick Cannon Gets Dropped

The headline below is from CBS news:

Nick Cannon dropped by ViacomCBS over “anti-Semitic” comments

I have to wonder why “anti-Semitic” is put in scare quotes.  Claiming that the Rothschilds are among those secretly controlling the world is one of the oldest anti-Semitic conspiracies out there.  It was one that was used by Hitler and which is still used by David Duke.  When someone cites that theory, there’s no need to act as if there’s some sort of controversy over whether or not they’re being anti-Semitic.  They are.

On a positive note, I’m seeing a lot of people — of all races and religions — condemning Nick Cannon’s comments.  That’s certainly an improvement over what I’ve seen in the past, when people have either ignored comments like this or acted as if they’re just evidence of isolated eccentricity.  It’s a step in the right direction.
