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…

If you break into homes…

You will eventually find an armed homeowner. No one will be surprised at the result. One shot in home invasion.

After the initial investigation, it appears the armed homeowner confronted two adult male suspects at his residence. As a result of this confrontation, one male suspect shot. He was transported from the scene to Genesis Hospital with a single gunshot wound.

2 people are in custody, a man and a woman. It doesn’t say if the other “male suspect” is still in the hospital, or if police are still searching for someone. My instinct is to say, “Good Guys 3…” But I really can’t back that up with the story linked above.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense in North Carolina

Good Guys came out on top, but they were shot as well. Eden Suspected Burglar Killed, Homeowner Wounded During Overnight Break-In.

Deonte Eric Smith and Dieontra Shukur Clark forced their way into a home on the 800 block of Bridge Street after midnight Sunday according to Eden Police. Officers responded around 12:45 to find Clark dead and the homeowners with gunshot wounds.

A child in the house was uninjured.

Cops caught up with Smith later in the day. He is charged with one count of murder. (Felony murder)

Self-defense is a human-right.

Whoever Mailed the Threatening Letter to Smollett…

They made a serious mistake. Smollett threat letter called “enormous mistake”; Purported attack location identified; Federal charges “certain”.

Since being created by Benjamin Franklin—yes, that Benjamin Franklin—the [United States Postal Inspection Service] has learned a few things about tracing mail-based crimes. Figuring out who mailed a letter has been made easier because, while most criminals know to wear gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints, most criminals also forget to leave their cellphones at home when they go to the mailbox.

According to CWBChicago [Crime in Wrigleyville and Boystown] there has already been stuff taken to a federal grand jury. The letter was mailed on January 18th.

Meanwhile, the FBI and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service has been quietly working on the origins of Smollett’s letter for nearly a month. Giving it far more “attention” than he knew.

Late Monday, CWBChicago received confirmation that the letter case has been before a federal grand jury and multiple subpoenas have been generated over the course of the investigation.

Possible charges, if it turns out to be a false flag, include “terroristic hoax” and federal obstruction charges.

I, for one, welcome our self-driving overlords

Ain’t technology wonderful. (The title to this post is stolen shamelessly from Small Dead Animals, a link can be found in the sidebar.) ‘Autopilot’-ed Tesla Crashes Off NJ Highway, Driver Reportedly Unable To Regain Control Of Vehicle.

Yet another example came to light on Monday when a driver in North Brunswick, New Jersey wrecked his Tesla on a highway while the vehicle was in Autopilot mode. According to a report published by News 12 New Jersey, the driver said that the vehicle “got confused due to the lane markings” at a point where the driver could have stayed on the highway or taken an exit. The driver claims that Autopilot split the difference and went down “the middle”, between the exit and staying on the highway.

The car then drove off the road and collided with several objects before coming to a stop. The driver claims that he tried to regain control of the vehicle but that “it would not let him”.

This crash reminds me of the one that happened in Mountain View, California in March of last year. (Hat tip to Borepatch.)

Anti-Trump-supporter Hate Crime?

Don’t expect the mainstream press to cover this. Man accused of pulling gun on victim wearing MAGA hat.

According to the alleged victim Terry Pierce, a man pulled a gun on him because he was wearing a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.

Witnesses and security cameras back up this story. The guy with the Trump-derangement syndrome is in custody, charged with “wanton endangerment first degree.” That doesn’t seem right to me. I’m no lawyer, but that seems more like assault, though I suppose the DA is free to change that in the future. There is much more at the link above.
