The Jan. 15 issue of the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle included an article on hate symbols and signs on display at the Capitol riots. Sadly, I have learned of one more that the Jewish community should recognize. The local website Next Door Squirrel Hill recently posted a message someone who was walking through Schenley Park when he passed a man wearing a T-shirt with the phrase “6MWE.” Never having seen it before, the person asked the wearer what it meant; the answer was “6 Million Wasn’t Enough.” Apparently the two nearly got into a fight but eventually went their separate ways. My cousin who lives in Los Angeles was surprised that I was unfamiliar with the phrase, so this must be something that is not unique to Pittsburgh. I don’t know if it was seen at the Capitol on Jan. 6, but snopes.com has a photograph showing this T-shirt worn by a man near the Capitol in December.

The message speaks for itself.
