    'The plugin scanned the text of websites for matches on its frequently-updated list of Jewish names. When it found a match, it encased the name in three sets of parenthesis, an identification format that originated on a right-wing blog called The Right Stuff, according to Mic. Users could add new names to the app's database by
    posting them on the app's support tab.' (From PC Magazine)

    The plugin has since been removed by Chrome, which does not allow promotions of hate or violence in it's software.

    The group who created this is an 'alt-right' group who are people which are young supporters of the Republican candidate for president, they are also anti-Semitic.

    So that plugin basically tells people if a person mentioned in articles is Jewish. Why should that bother you?

    The identification could be deemed similar to the gold star badges used to identify Jewish people in Nazi Germany. The 'echo's used also identify people who could be subjected to hate online by people who are anti-Semitic, which has been shown as a very large problem in articles I've read, especially by Jewish journalists reporting on Donald Trump.

    AFAIK Trump is pro-Israel. What evidence do you or the washingtonpost have that those users were Trump supporters?

    Sounds like a poor attempt at smearing if you ask me.

    The group has shown support for Donald Trump and they aren't denying it, he is the subject of many adoring #altright tweets on Twitter and is considered a hero. I found this from the associated website The Right Stuff, the first line is literally 'The alt-right position on Donald Trump has since the get-go been to use him to further our message.'

    Maybe before you start saying this is smearing, you actually do some research?

    The thread title clearly conflates the alt-right with mainstream Trump supporters. 2/10.

    But they support him..? Struggling to see what your point is with this comment.

    'we are his loudest, edgiest, and most articulate supporters on social media'

    So what? The point of the thread is clearly to denigrate Trump supporters and you're using a fringe group to do it.

    If you really care about the plight of the jews maybe you should concentrate on the labour party or George Soros' funding of anti-semitic think tanks.

    The point of this thread is to show something, if anti-Trump people start **** up, as pointed out by: this andthis it gets people generalising the left to be entirely violent and undemocratic. BUT, as you've just shown, when the pro-Trump supporters do it (even when the Jewish people in question have done nothing wrong, may I add), they just get called a 'fringe group' rather than general Trump supporters inciting hatred.

    Except the mainstream anti trump are violent and mainstream trump is not, and as you've just shown neither is the alt right pro-trump fringe group.

    There is no "incitement of hatred". If you hear something you don't like and you CHOOSE to be violent then that is your choice, it is not down to "incitement".

    What if your glass slips under the table and breaks. That could be similar to Kristal Nacht couldn't it?

    What is there was a plug in that told what religion everyone was - a region equality plug in as it treated all religions equally, would that be ok?

    Go on YT and look for

    Protester violence at Bernie rallies then try
    Protester violence at Clinton rallies then try
    Protester violence at Trump rallies.

    It says it all and the fact that this is hardly being reported at all on the MSM and you have to go on YT to see it speaks volumes too.

    And not only is 99% of the protestor violence from the progressive-left, the media then spins it so that it appears that 99% of the violence is from the anti-progressive-right.

    Then many people not having looked into this stuff properly or not having the ability to think against the crowd act as cucks for the progressive left.
