While Orthodox Jews in New York City are being assaulted by Democrats, while religious Jewish schools are under siege by the New York City government, while Orthodox Jewish rituals, such as Kapporot, are disrupted by militant leftist animal rights activists, the media and NYC authorities keep trying to change the subject to one that fits their political narrative. The white supremacist threat to New York.
“ANTI-NEW YORK WHITE SUPREMACIST HATE IS RISING, NYPD SAYS,” the headline claims.
Except the banner story involves a threatening phone call. Whose perpetrator was prosecuted. The rest all seem to involve fliers, graffiti and leaflets.
City’s Greg B. Smith, dishonestly implies that the anti-Semitic violence relates to white supremacists.
“In response, the NYPD has added analysts and investigators to track the white nationalist chatter and stay ahead of the curve of any potential attacks, Miller said.
Meanwhile, hate crimes in the city have jumped dramatically in the last two years — especially assaults, threats and vandalism targeting the Jewish community.
So far this year, the NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force’s caseload has spiked almost 50 percent, records show. Between Jan. 1 and Aug. 4, the task force opened 249 cases, up from 169 during the same period last year.
At the same time, arrests for bias-motivated crimes grew from 92 to 119.
Much of the white nationalist activity in New York City appears limited to random assaults, vandalism and offensive leafleting.”
In fact, the physical assaults, the real problem, are largely carried out by minority Democrats against Jews. Here’s the latest example.
The Hate Crimes Unit of the New York City Police Department confirmed on Monday that it was investigating three assaults on orthodox Jewish men that took place earlier in the day.
The three men were attacked early on Monday morning by unknown assailants in Brooklyn while making their way to synagogue services. Several similar incidents have been reported in recent months, with assailants targeting the increasingly fearful orthodox Jewish communities in the borough.
The teenage attackers are still being sought. Video of the alleged assailants released by the Williamsburg Shomrim — a community security organization — showed up to four young black men gathering at a pedestrian crossing.
White supremacist shootings of Jews is a real problem. There have been two attacks on synagogues, in Pittsburgh and Poway, but not in New York.
It’s not unreasonable for the NYPD to keep an eye peeled, but thus far the synagogue attack plots in New York City have involved Muslims.
And the media can’t and won’t acknowledge that.
