I saw what you posted on my sister-in-law's Facebook wall.
"You have a ugly jew nose."
Anti-semitism kind of went out of style in the 40's when Hitler jumped the shark.
My sister-in-law, Elizabeth, dealt with the bully with far more grace and patience than I ever would have.
Okay, 1. I really don't know you all that well, and I don't appreciate the antisemitism. 2. Insulting someone's ethnicity and appearance is far uglier than anyone's nose could ever be.
Then Bully #1's BFF, Bully #2, joined in on the anti-semitic-fest and said, "Yeah, you tell her!"
I wanted to slap the two girls all the way back to Auschwitz. (See what I mean? Elizabeth is far wiser than me.)
Meanwhile, Elizabeth's friends and family all have been posting wonderful messages of support, reminding her about how beautiful she is. She really is.
Here's two sad things. Bully #1 is in freaking COLLEGE. In business school. And yet she's racist. Bully #2 graduated from my SIL's Catholic high school last year, and is also in college, joking about dealing drugzzzz at her job at a nearby pharmacy. How on earth will they ever get jobs? (Protip to the bullies--joking publicly about smoking marijuana will not help you get a job. Also, don't post Harry Potter porn. That was nasty shit. Your bosses can see that.)
So, that's one consolation. They'll never get jobs if they continue on this quite public path.
I went to Evensong at St. James right after I found out about the bullying, and one part of the reading from Jeremiah really rang true.
They acted shamefully, they committed abomination;
yet they were not ashamed,
they did not know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
at the time that I punish them, they shall be overthrown, says the Lord.
There's another small consolation; there's a special place in hell for people who play at being neo-Nazis.
The bully showed no remorse on Twitter.

What a sad state of affairs when kids bully other kids just for laughs.
