Anti-antisemitism in the US Media? Say It Ain’t So!

But of course it is so. Jewish businesses in Los Angeles ransacked in riots, but only Israeli and Jewish media care.

First the media ignored the carnage, with one famous example of a “journalist” reporting on “mostly peaceful” protests with a burning building in the background. Then the media just decided that the obvious targeting of Jewish neighborhoods, people and businesses wasn’t worth reporting. It still isn’t, apparently.

Since then, images have emerged of a darker narrative, with rioters targeting Jewish businesses. Israeli newspapers ran with this angle this past Saturday, but by the end of the day, there was nothing about the Jewish vandalism to be found on the New York Times website. Usually the Times is pretty up on anti-Semitism, but it was easier to find a piece about Anna Wintour than any mentions of vandalized Jews.

So now we’re avoiding news about anti-Semitism in these riots urging diversity?

The media have become a part of the problem. Can’t report the news if doing so would let people scream “racist.” Better to just ignore the bigotry on the part of the protesters rioters.

More Fake News

Though this may actually be paranoia, as opposed to fabrication. Fake Noose, Fake News.

The supposed “noose” was just the rope pull-down handle for the garage door, where somebody had tied a loop in it for a handle. No one who had spent any time around that track could have thought this was a racial threat, but for some reason, NASCAR officials did

The FBI did an investigation and concluded you’re a bunch of paranoid fools. They were more diplomatic about it.

Internet Vigilantes Get it Wrong Again and Again

Are we surprised that people willing to burn down businesses will destroy someone’s life over an error?

First up… Internet vigilantes falsely link ex-officer to teens’ attack

Baffled by the barrage of hate last Thursday, [John] Damskey plugged his name into the internet and made a horrifying discovery: Mobs of Twitter users were falsely accusing him of being the bicyclist on a Maryland trail who accosted three young adults posting flyers protesting the death of George Floyd.

And then… What It’s Like to Get Doxed for Taking a Bike Ride.

In his mentions, disaster was rapidly unfolding. People accused him of assaulting a child. Of being a racist. They shared a selfie he’d taken in sunglasses and his bike helmet and analyzed it alongside blurry images of another man in sunglasses and a bike helmet.

In both cases they were wrong. It didn’t matter. Because they don’t care about anything or anyone, except proving how woke they are.

In the 2nd case, the nightmare started because his regular bicycle ride was shared publicly on some GPS app, because what could go wrong with a lack of privacy.

Trail shared that information publicly, not just with his network of friends and followers. Someone had located a record of his ride on the path on June 2, matched it to the location of the assault from the video, matched his profile picture — white guy, aviator-style sunglasses, helmet obscuring much of his head — to the man in the video, and shared the hunch publicly.

And the hunch was accepted as fact.

And while I know about these 2 incidents, I’m sure there are more.

Another Lawyer Making Terrorist Threats

Hey, he probably thought he was safe behind his bandana. ‘Protester’ Who Made Terroristic Threats on Live TV Is a Brooklyn Lawyer.

Gateway Pundit broke the news today that Israel Adam “Ace” Burns is a Brooklyn attorney, who graduated from Rutgers Law School and appears to have many influential friends:

Because the news didn’t see fit to identify his profession. BLM protester threatens to burn down NYC Diamond District during Fox News interview, is arrested for terror threats.

Burns’ attorney Ken Belkin hopes the Brooklyn district attorney declines to prosecute the case, arguing his client didn’t actually mean any harm.

“This is a peaceful man. I don’t believe he intended to make any threats or really intended to make good on that threat.

Because “peaceful people” always make threats to burn down largely Jewish neighborhoods. At least the peaceful people in NYC apparently do. Or so this attorney seems to imply.

Antisemitism In Los Angeles

But somehow it isn’t newsworthy. The Los Angeles Pogrom That No Jewish Organization Will Talk About.

After the end of Shavuot, the holiday in which Jewish people joyfully commemorate the giving of the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai, the Jewish community of Los Angeles concluded it by the new ritual of going to clean off the hateful graffiti from their houses of worship while picking up the broken glass from the black nationalist and radical leftist night of broken glass in Los Angeles.

One small business owner described a “late Saturday night with people driving down the Fairfax district streets screaming, ‘effing Jews'”.

At the latest count, at least 5 synagogues in the area were vandalized, as were three Jewish schools.

There is more at the link.

How Dare You Sue for Your Constitutional Rights

So do we call this an anti-Christian hate crime? Mississippi church suing on virus restrictions burns down.

When investigators from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office got to the scene, they found graffiti in the church parking lot that read: “Bet you stay home now you hypokrites.”

I was a bit surprised to see this getting national coverage, since I don’t really see how the media are going to be able to blame this action on Trump.

Waldrop had filed a lawsuit against the city of Holly Springs last month, alleging police officers had disrupted a church bible study and Easter service. Holly Springs City Attorney Shirley Byers said nearly 40 parishioners inside the church building were not practicing social distancing on April 10 when a violation citation was issued for the church.

What is it that the First Amendment says?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

So how is it that the city and the jackbooted cops thought they could prohibit the “free exercise” of religion? They have the authority to tell you to “Shut up! Do whatever the hell we tell you!” Or they think they do, anyway.

So someone took a more direct approach.

If a Muslim Immigrant Kills a 7-yr-old Girl…

And the media buries the story, did it really happen? Yes, it did happen. But the Left’s preferred narrative makes it necessary for the media to make sure you never know about it.

So in that place where Great Britain used to be… Somali National Stabs to Death 7-year-old in UK Park; Katie Hopkins’ Letter is a Must Read.

It happened in March, but made little news mostly we can only assume, and others have speculated, that it is because the violent act was perpetrated by a Somali woman against a beautiful innocent white child unknown to the attacker.

Early reports of the killing never mention a word about the identity of the attacker as a migrant from Africa.

Political Correctness dictates that the facts (which are racist) cannot be brought to light. People might begin to think thoughts that are not government approved, or approved by the Left!

A news article from a month ago. Somali national arrested for stabbing 7-year-old British girl in the throat, killing her while she played in the park.

Chechen Migrants Attack African Migrants in France

France: 50 Chechens storm migrant reception center and attack ‘African rivals’.

They were armed with bats, sticks, iron bars, and attacked in the middle of the night.

As the Chechens were leaving the facility, one of them stopped and struck Philippe over the head with an iron bar, injuring him seriously but not causing him to lose consciousness.

“He told me that I should be on their side and not on that of the Africans,” Philippe [the security guard at the reception center] recounted.

Only a couple of the attackers have been arrested, the rest fled before the police got there.

So why are a bunch of Chechen migrants attacking Africans? Hate is the only answer I can think of.

Anti Semitic Attacks Were Taking Place While You Were Distracted With Quarantine

First up the University isn’t a safe space. Yale University Rabbi Abused and Beaten in Antisemitic Robbery Praises Swift Police Response.

Rosenstein had been making a call on his cellphone while standing outside the Yale Chabad House when he was approached by two teenage boys, one of whom told him, “Give us everything you have, you f__ Jew.”

Then there is the vandalism in Alabama. Huntsville Synagogue vandalized with swastikas.

A Huntsville synagogue has been vandalized with swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti at the start of Passover. News outlets report that Huntsville police are investigating after the Etz Chayim temple was desecrated Wednesday night.

And with everyone using Zoom, the haters are also using it. Zoombombing: New Frontier of Anti-Semitism?

The hijacking and disruption of video teleconferencing on the popular platform Zoom, which has become known as Zoombombing, is a growing concern to those who fight crime and hate, including the FBI and the Anti-Defamation League. It’s especially troubling considering the ubiquitous use of the app for business, education and group meetings during the coronavirus.

There are things you can do to avoid Zoombombing. And you should, or you risk getting bombed with everything from porn to hate.

Liberal Assault on Christianity Comes Up Short

At least in Kentucky. Liberal Mayor: You’re Not Allowed To Attend Drive-In Church Service. Judge: Nope, Gives Mayor Tongue-Lashing.

On Fire Christian Church sued Mayor Greg Fischer and the city on Friday, arguing the mayor’s order banning drive-up service was in violation of their First Amendment rights, particularly since the churchgoers would be practicing safe “social distancing” recommendations.

According to Courier Journal, U.S. District Judge Justin Walker wrote in a temporary restraining order: “On Holy Thursday, an American mayor criminalized the communal celebration of Easter.”

Judge Walker “banned the city from ‘enforcing; attempting to enforce; threatening to enforce; or otherwise requiring compliance with any prohibition on drive-in church services at On Fire,’” the report noted.

And the governor has cops recording the license plates of anyone who DARED to attend Easter Mass. How dare you disregard their authority.

Dave Chappelle Is a Genius

In the meantime, while we wait to see if this will impact Crimesha’s reelection, enjoy the following from Mr. Chappelle. (Crimesha is also known as Crook County State’s Attorney, Kim Foxx. Oh, look, a typo.)

Don’t ever forget what happened to that French actor. Do you know who I’m talking about? “Juicy Smool-yay.”

Any Bets on Whether or Not Justice Will Be Served?

Can Trump Derangement Syndrome be a basis for an insanity plea? Then there is bail reform, etc. Man accused of driving through Republican voter registration tent arrested.

Hours after a van plowed through a Republican Party tent where volunteers were registering voters, Jacksonville police arrested a 27-year-year man on two counts of aggravated assault on a person over 65 years old, criminal mischief and driving without a license.

I would categorize this as more of a botched terrorist attack, of the kind you usually find in Germany around Christmas markets.

Van Drives Through Republican Voter Registration Booth

The Headline doesn’t mention “Republican” voter registration booth. Jacksonville, Florida. Van plows through voter registration tent, narrowly missing volunteers.

Jacksonville police say a driver intentionally crashed a van through a tent where Duval County GOP volunteers were registering voters Saturday afternoon.

Nobody was injured in the 3:45 p.m. incident at the Walmart Supercenter

Police are mystified about what the motive might be. Hint: It rhymes with “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

One of the volunteers managed to snap a photo of the van as it drove away, but it isn’t clear to me if you can make out a license plate.

Security people. The Left has become unhinged from the standards of civilization. Security is now required everywhere.

Media Bias, What Media Bias?

Really, you don’t think the US media is biased against Christians, do you? Cruelty to Animals Gets More Media Coverage than Beheaded Christians.

Starts out with a list of atrocities. Then notices the coverage of a Chinese pig.

Unfortunately, the murder of these Christians during the last month has been largely ignored by the Western media. “A slow-motion war is under way in Africa’s most populous country. It’s a massacre of Christians, massive in scale and horrific in brutality and the world has hardly noticed”, wrote the French philosopher, Bernard Henri Lévy.

While Christians were murdered in Nigeria, the global media ran a story of a pig being tied up and shoved off a bungee tower at a new theme park in China. The story went viral on BBC, The Independent, The New York Times, Sky News, Deutsche Welle and many other mainstream media outlets. The Chinese pig got more media coverage than any of these murdered Christians in Nigeria.

Human-rights? I remember a time when the Left, and the media (but I repeat myself) was all for protecting Human-rights.

Is the Jewish Community In New York Arming Up?

In NYC it is a “permit to own” not a permit to carry. Gun Permit Applications Surge Nearly 1,000% in New York Jewish Community.

And if it went from 1 to 10, or from 10 to 100, that would be 1000 percent. That is the trouble with small numbers, they don’t lend themselves to statistical reasoning.

And until NYC and New York State get rid of their insane gun laws it won’t help. They can’t carry guns on the street, so they will continue to be disarmed when they are attacked by the antisemitic monsters in NYC.

Still, it is a beginning. (Hat tip to New Jovian Thunderbolt.)

Anti-Semite Remains On New Jersey School Board

“I’ll take Antisemitism Is Okay When it Comes From the Left Alex.” Why the Jersey City official who called local Jews ‘brutes’ has not resigned.

In the days after a local official responded to the Jersey City shooting by calling local Jews “brutes” and expressing sympathy for the shooters, it appeared that pressure was quickly mounting for her to resign.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop called for her to step down. So did New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy. The president of the Board of Education, Sudhan Thomas, told reporters he would introduce a resolution at the next meeting censuring her and asking her to resign.

Three weeks later, Board of Education member Joan Terrell-Paige is still in her post and it doesn’t look like she’s going anywhere.

Because hey, she’s a minority, and prejudice from minorities doesn’t count. Not when it is directed at Jews.

I Feel a Strong Disturbance in the Narrative

Because how can a bunch of blacks and Hispanics be White Supremacists, and the media knows those are the only kind of anti-Semites. Or the only kind they want to report on. The Left Ignores the ‘Wrong’ Kind of Anti-Semitism.

You might think that the upsurge in anti-Semitic attacks is a new thing. It isn’t. The media have been ignoring all the violence for months or years.

It’s not mere lack of focus and time preventing the media from taking anti-Semitism in New York seriously. It’s the identity of the attackers.

Armin Rosen wrote for Tablet Magazine back in July 2019 about the Jew hatred in New York and correctly noted “that the victims are most often outwardly identifiable, i.e., religious rather than secularized Jews, and the perpetrators who have been recorded on CCTV cameras are overwhelmingly black and Hispanic.”

How can they blame Trump or the Republicans for the actions of people (in some cases demonstrably) tied to the Democratic party? They can’t, so the bury the story.

Anti-Semitism grows when the victims become secondary and the perpetrators become primary. If you’re only concerned about anti-Semitism from white supremacists but utterly blithe about Jews being beaten in the streets of one of the nation’s largest cities by suspects who clearly are not white supremacists, you’re part of the problem. And that goes for those who govern New York, from de Blasio to Cuomo.

Good Thing We Eliminated Mental Hospitals

Because aving crazy people running around is so much better. ‘We Knew He Was Crazy But Not Like This,’ Ex-Wife of Church Gunman Says.

Kinnunen’s ex-wife said he had a bad drug habit and lost touch with reality.

“We knew he was crazy but not like this,” Angela Holloway said. “I don’t wish this on anybody. I feel sorry for the victims. I really do.”

The list of restraining orders, assault charges, etc. at the link. So what happens when you have crazy people running around? They do bad things.

A side note, and a quote from one of the congregation.

“I was so surprised because I did not know that so many in the church were armed,” Isabel Arreola said, telling the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that she was sitting near the gunman, had never seen him before, looked like he was wearing a disguise and that he “made her uncomfortable.”

Good thing they were. (Hat tip to The Other McCain on that story.)

And of course, this is not an isolated incident. A clear-eyed look at Monsey attack: It looks like New York’s mental health failures were partly responsible for the attack at a rabbi’s home.

His long-time pastor couldn’t understand why he wasn’t institutionalized, telling one reporter, “There hasn’t been anyone who has given a real solution to deal with a grown man who is dealing with schizophrenia, other than ‘Go home and call us if something happens.’ ”

That is certainly the case in New York, and it’s Cuomo who bears the brunt of the blame for the state’s failed mental health policies. He continues to close psychiatric hospitals, refuses to take the lead in amending New York’s involuntary commitment standard, and, like Mayor de Blasio, is surrounded by people who refuse to focus mental health services on delivering treatment to the most seriously mentally ill.

Unfortunately, “when something happens” usually means something bad has happened.

Bill de Blasio Finally Does Something Right. Left Freaks Out.

Because the groups hated by the Left shouldn’t be offered protection from violence. Blue-Check SJWs Freak Out After NY Mayor Announces Protection for Jews.

Remember the deadly Dec. 10 attack just across the river in Jersey City, which was connected to the Black Hebrew Israelites cult. This followed months of reports of anti-Semitic harassment in New York perpetrated by black teenagers. Because the suspects were “people of color” (POC), these hate crimes were an embarrassment to the Left, which wants to blame Trump for increasing anti-Semitism.

So in response to record levels of antisemitic hate crimes in New York City, Bill de Blasio has promised increased levels of NYPD in the impacted neighborhoods. The Left is melting down.

David Klion is worried that “tens of thousands of people” are going to suffer “real costs” as a result of an increased law-enforcement presence to prevent hate crimes in New York’s Jewish neighborhoods. Klion seems to imply that arresting perpetrators of hate crimes is a bad thing, if the perpetrators are “POC.” Who thinks this way? Commies, that’s who — no joke.

As always, go read the whole thing. The Other McCain is a better writer than I am.

8 Antisemitic Attacks in NYC in One Week

Taking a page out of Chicago’s playbook. Woman accused of assaulting 3 Jewish women arrested again day after release.

Because keeping violent criminals in jail would be unfair. Or something.

A day after she was released without bail on charges stemming from the Friday attack, Tiffany Harris was charged with assault for slugging a 35-year-old in the face

Oh, and things are worse than I imagined.

On Friday, Harris allegedly assaulted three Orthodox women … — one of at least eight anti-Semitic incidents in the city last week.

“Yes, I slapped them. I cursed them out. I said ‘F-U, Jews,” Harris admitted to cops after that attack, according to a criminal complaint.

And for that she was released with No Bail. Because Bail is unfair.
