The Democratic National Convention’s chat room during its YouTube live stream of Monday night’s events was filled with anti-semitic statements, along with jokes about Muslims and “queers.”

Live stream users discussed “Jews,” “queers” and Muslims throughout the night on the DNC page. One user, named JohnLothe, claimed that “Israelis” had too great an influence in the Western world.

“Israelis period have to much influence in America and the Western world in general,” he wrote. Another user tried to defend them, saying that JohnLothe’s statement was “hate speech.”

During Bernie Sander’s speech, JohnLothe wrote “I know jews don’t really like to do manual work, but this man takes the cake.” Another user, Andrew Boyle chimed in with “QUEERS  AND MUSLIMS! GOOD COMBO!”

The Republican National Convention live stream chat room came under fire last week, due to what many felt were anti-semitic comments and racist statements. The chat room was eventually shut down.
