A Tale of Two Hate Crimes

The reality of media bias highlighted in the course of 24 hours. On January 29, Two Hate Crimes Occurred. The Media Only Covered The Fake One. Here’s Why.

The first hate crime was of course the Jussie Smollett attack. He is black and gay, and everyone chimed in. From Speaker Pelosi, who has since deleted at least one tweet on the subject, to the media, to Hollywood, etc. It was a hoax. (More on that later.)

That same night, a Jewish man in New York was beaten by three thugs. Nothing was stolen. The attack was caught on video.

Outside of a report in The Jerusalem Post, the story received virtually no attention.

Hate crimes against Orthodox Jews are just not interesting to Hollywood, or Capitol Hill, or the media. And it isn’t only one hate crime. NYC has seen about double the hate crimes in 2019 versus the same period in 2018, and two thirds of those have been against Jews.

But back to the original article at the first link above…

The New York Times reported in October of last year that “there have been four times as many crimes motivated by bias against Jews — 142 in all — as there have against blacks. Hate crimes against Jews have outnumbered hate crimes targeted at transgender people by a factor of 20.”

But it is hard to blame Trump for all of that, especially when a couple of the high-profile attacks on synagogues were carried out by a black Democrat. There was a hint of some coverage, and then the “black Democrat” part came to light, and the media lost all interest in anti-Semitic attacks in New York City.

But to the Left Jews are the enemy, and so antisemitism is of no interest, not even when it is on the rise.

On the subject of Jussie Smollett…. You can get some info about when his story began to disintegrate at And Just Like That, The Smollett Story Begins to Unravel, and the problems with sending terroristic threats through the mail at the posting Whoever Mailed the Threatening Letter to Smollett…

Hate Crimes: The Smollett Outrage vs The Silence about NYC Anti-Semitic Attacks

This rabbi has a point. Why Crown Heights Hate Crimes Aren’t Newsworthy.

Rabbi Yaacov Behrman, who heads the Crown Heights-based “Jewish Future Alliance,” innocently asked, “Where is the public outrage? Indeed, why isn’t this front-page headlines?”

And of course there was another attack. Brooklyn Synagogue Vandalized In Possible Hate Crime, Police Say.

[Rabbi Heller of the Chabad of Bushwick Synagogue] says community members were enjoying Shabbat together early Saturday morning when vandals destroyed the house of worship’s window.

It looks like a rock or brick was thrown thru a window. It made quite a mess.

So Jussie Smollett is (allegedly) attacked in Chicago, and Twitter and the 24-hour-news (so-called) machine lights up like the Fourth of July, but on the subject of antisemitism in New York City… [insert sound of crickets.] (Well there was some attention paid to a couple of attacks, until it turned out that the person responsible for some of them was a Democrat.)

New York City, Mayor de Blasio admitted Thursday there had been 47 hate crime incidents in the city this year – nearly double the number at this point in 2018.

Of those incidents, two-thirds reportedly targeted the Jewish community.

Media bias? What media bias? Nothing to see here. Move along.

Are You Still Relying on Wikipedia? Don’t be an idiot

Mark Dice is fighting (and maybe losing) a fight with Wikipedia. Mark Dice battles Wikipedia: Conservative YouTube pundit blocked from debate on his biography.

It seems that if you are a successful conservative, Wikipedia doesn’t want that information on their site.

Now Mark Dice has a habit of pissing people off, but he makes me laugh. Case in point, from a couple of years ago… Californians sign sham petition supporting ‘Obama’s preemptive nuclear strike’ against Russia. Obama supporters would sign anything they thought Obama approved of, even Global Thermonuclear War.

The moral of the story? Don’t believe Wikipedia.

For Dice’s own take on the situation, see his YouTube video on the subject.

Nick Sandmann to Sue Media?

He should get at least his college degree paid for. Maybe graduate/law/whatever school as well. Sandmann lawyer: Letters sent to New York Times, Today Show, 50 others may precede suits.

The lawyers representing Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and his family said Friday they have sent letters to media outlets, individual journalists, celebrities and Catholic organizations as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.

The list includes 50-plus names of organizations or individuals: from presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren to actress Alyssa Milano; individual journalists including Maggie Haberman, Ana Cabrera and David Brooks; national media outlets like the The New York Times, CNN, GQ and TMZ; and the dioceses of Covington and Lexington as well as the archdioceses of Louisville and Baltimore.

Hat tip to Don Surber (who isn’t a lawyer either) but thinks they have a strong case for libel.

One, what they said about him was untrue. Two, those lies put him in harm’s way as there were death threats against him. Three, he is not a public figure. Four, he is a minor. Five, they did damage his reputation.

One of his lawyers, Todd McMurtry, told the newspaper, “They know they crossed the line. Do they want 12 people in Kentucky to decide their fate? I don’t think so.”

This should be fun to watch.

The Ad That Was Too Patriotic For CBS

Not in keeping with the narrative. CBS rejects pro-flag, anti-Kaepernick ‘Just Stand’ Super Bowl ad.

A veteran-owned apparel company’s pro-flag Super Bowl TV ad that punches back at Nike’s promotion of Colin Kaepernick and his national anthem protests has been rejected by CBS.

According to the firm, Nine Line Apparel, CBS was apparently not satisfied the firm could pay for the 45-second ad, despite having annual revenues of $25 million. A spokesman for Nine Line charged that CBS didn’t like the ad’s content.

You decide… Here’s a link in case YouTube trips over browser privacy extensions.

London Telegraph Hates All People Related to President Trump

I haven’t read the original article, but it sounds like they got most things wrong. (How much space did they devote to article, if this much was lies?) Melania Trump – An Apology.

I usually like the London Telegraph. They have great coverage of Europe without being the raving communists over at the BBC. But they hate Trump, and it appears that hatred spills over onto his family.

So they did a hit piece an article on Melania Trump. The list of things they got wrong in their zeal to attack anyone associated with the President is astounding.

Mrs Trump did not leave her Design and Architecture course at University relating to the completion of an exam, as alleged in the article, but rather because she wanted to pursue a successful career as a professional model. Mrs Trump was not struggling in her modelling career before she met Mr Trump, and she did not advance in her career due to the assistance of Mr Trump.

We accept that Mrs Trump was a successful professional model in her own right before she met her husband and obtained her own modelling work without his assistance. Mrs Trump met Mr Trump in 1998, not in 1996 as stated in the article. The article also wrongly claimed that Mrs Trump’s mother, father and sister relocated to New York in 2005 to live in buildings owned by Mr Trump. They did not.

They have agreed to pay her legal fees and “substantial damages” in this case.

It is in the same spirit that Buzzfeed et al continue to launch any and every attack on all things Trump, even when they know they are likely false. (They being both the Left-wing Media, and the “respectable Republicans” who hate Trump.)

Buzzfeed’s CEO and His Fake News History

I guess nothing has changed for the guy who runs Buzzfeed. John Lott: BuzzFeed and me – The incredible thing the site’s CEO did using my name without permission.

It seems John Lott (and others) have history with Buzzfeed CEO Jonah Peretti.

BuzzFeed’s culture of fake news starts at the top with founder and CEO Jonah Peretti, who has a history of knowingly spreading false information. He has used fraudulent websites and email accounts to pose as people he wished to defame. I was one of his victims.

Details at the link above. So that when people ask, “How can Buzzfeed do this kind of thing?” you have an answer.
