A local musician (member of Bored Stiff ) and a self described "thug", Equipto (given name Illych Yasuchi Sato) has been spearheading an active campaign against Manny's on social media.
Equipto is of Columbian and Japanese heritage and knows little about this conflict, beyond a few buzzwords, repeated often and with gusto. Equipto thinks he's "progressive", yet Equipto's exclusionary racist banter is biased, ignorant and racist.
"When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism,” Dr. Martin Luther King.
Yo- Equipto: Zionism is the civil rights movement of the Jewish people. If you dont believe Jews are entitled to civil rights, well, we have a word for that.
In the world according to Equipto, Jews, er "Zionists" should be relegated to special parts of the city. We've seen that before. Can you say "ghetto"? I think you can.
The shallow analysis, reductionist, zero sum game of Equipto's tweets have made him today's Anti-Zionist not Anti-Semite of the Day over at Israellycool.
Classy, Equipto. Classy. Manny is of Afghani heritage, btw.
