The HP's Love of Controversy

Check out a new story published yesterday in the "World" section:

Basically the story is about a person using the "Sweden" twitter account making some un-PC remarks about Jewish people. You can tell the Huffington Post was serious about this because they used italics in their headline.

As far as I can tell most of the comments were by people who genuinely didn't understand why people found the tweets problematic. There were a few noted "anti-Zionists" who felt it was necessary to "explain" what the tweets meant, because apparently the rest of us are dumb and can't speak English properly:

Though by now there are probably many more. The lesson here is there is no story about Jews the Huffington Post will not publish.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
