Would you apply for a job at company knowing it defends anti-Semitism?
Summary: Boycott Watch continues its fight against anti-Semitism on Facebook
    That is the question Boycott Watch is asking. Right now Boycott Watch is in the middle of a campaign (Report 1 and Report 2) exposing how The Outcast Agency, a PR firm with offices in San Francisco and New York City is doing just that - defending hate speech against Jews on Facebook. The Outcast Agency is hiring and any serious candidate will surely check Twitter, Facebook and the rest of the Internet which is buzzing with Boycott Watch exposing the hate Outcast protects, images below. In fact, their existing clients have surely seen it too.

    It is not a simple matter of free speech. Hate speech against African Americans and the gay communities are removed immediately. For some reason though, Outcast feels hate speech against Jews is acceptable.

    Fred Taub, the President of Boycott Watch was approached about anti-Semitic posts on Facebook and just assumed Facebook was unaware of the problem, so he called Facebook and was put in touch with their PR firm, The Outcast Agency, which told him removing content calling Jews 'dogs' would cause 'harm' to other Facebook users. The Outcast Agency was shocked that Mr. Taub objected. He discussed other hate postings but Outcast did not feel there was an actual problem with it.

    Several Boycott Watch readers have commented along the lines of "it feels like 1930's Germany." Anti-Semitism has become accepted in many circles. We are also seeing an acceptance of 'anti-Zionism' which is just a method of self-justifying anti-Semitism. After all, hating the Jewish state is hatred of Jews. In fact, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stated "Don't talk like that! When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You're talking anti-Semitism!"

Meanwhile, The Outcast Agency is under fire and will not return our phone calls. Boycott Watch publicly asked someone on Twitter who posted "Proud to be an Outcast" if she would be proud if outcast allowed attacks against her ethnicity. No reply was posted at the time this article was posted. According to The Holmes Report, an umbrella group for the PR industry, The Outcast Agency made $18.5 Million in 2011 defending anti-Semitism.

Holmes recently awarded The Outcast Agency their "Technology Agency of the Year" award, which Boycott Watch demands they revoke because Outcast would more appropriately be named their Anti-Semitic Agency of the Year.

    In all cases, the images violate the posted Facebook Community Standards which states: "Facebook does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition."

    The following are a series of graphics Boycott Watch has made and posted exposing some of what The Outcast Agency is protecting - We expose these images only after they have been reported as hate to Facebook, yet Outcast which gets those requests has refused to remove them. Tell us what you think here.
