/r/Politics not a big fan of Israel

I like to post things in /r/Politics and see what sort of reactions the different stories generate.  There's definitely a sort of "hivemind" there, and you can usually anticipate the tone of the comments.

A few weeks ago, I shared a New York Post article titled:
"AOC one of few to vote ‘no’ as House passes bill opposing Israel boycott."  
Users in /r/Politics love Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  But they dislike the New York Post.  How would they react?

The very first comment said: "Good. Fuck Israel."  I assumed the comment would be downvoted.  But I checked back recently and it had 54 upvotes!
