Non-Jewish Chris Matthews Says He's Getting Anti-Semitic Phone Calls

Chris Matthews, of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” is not Jewish, but he says he’s been getting anti-Semitic phone calls. I understand that he’s saying that he’s hearing some demeaning comments about whether the media company he works for is predominantly owned by Jewish people, but it’s still weird for someone who has not gone through any anti-Semitism to be wondering if it’s part of the new “zeitgeist.” To use a liberal term, it seems like cultural appropriation.
