NY Times Makes Shocking Confession Revealing Why Liberals Refuse to Call Out Anti-Semitsim

Whoa.

Published

on

A new piece published in the Wednesday edition of the New York Times tackled the subject matter of anti-Semitism in the Big Apple, finally admitting the real reason why liberals never call out this heinous act of discrimination.

The story itself noted some points that seem to have faded into the background over the last few years, such as Jews being the most targeted group of individuals in New York.

Contrary to what are surely the prevailing assumptions, anti-Semitic incidents have constituted half of all hate crimes in New York this year, according to the Police Department. To put that figure in context, 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.

The Times admits that the Left has routinely ignored anti-Semitism in the city thanks to its inability to formulate a narrative blaming the Right. The Times explains:

If anti-Semitism bypasses consideration as a serious problem in New York, it is to some extent because it refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy.

Now, why wouldn’t you cover a spate of anti-Semitism coming from a variety of different groups? Only for political reasons, as the Times then admits:

In fact, it is the varied backgrounds of people who commit hate crimes in the city that make combating and talking about anti-Semitism in New York much harder….bias stemming from longstanding ethnic tensions in the city presents complexities that many liberals have chosen simply to ignore….When a Hasidic man or woman is attacked by anyone in New York City, mainstream progressive advocacy groups do not typically send out emails calling for concern and fellowship and candlelight vigils in Union Square, as they often do when individuals are harmed in New York because of their race or ethnicity or how they identify in terms of gender or sexual orientation.

In other words, Jews don’t fit the intersectional classification necessary in order to receive narrative attention from either the mainstream media or from progressive groups. Orthodox Jews, who are often the targets of anti-Semitic attacks, aren’t seen as victims; their victimizers, who aren’t conservatives and who can’t be linked with conservatives, aren’t seen as victimizers. There’s a reason Al Sharpton, who helped initiate a riot against Orthodox Jews in Crown Heights in 1991, has a show on MSNBC where he opines about President Trump’s linkages to white supremacist anti-Semitism. Certain types of anti-Semitism are worthy of note. Others aren’t. And those on the Left often decide which is which with simple reference to a preferred narrative in which Jews are part of the white privileged class, unless they are victimized by white supremacists.

There are a lot of different places that anti-Semitism can spring from, as human history has woefully and painfully demonstrated to us as it has unfolded. You don’t have to be a neo-Nazi. Plenty of other groups despise the Jews, including radical Muslims, progressives who have beef with Israel, and folks who are racist against minorities.

Let’s hope for a better day one day when people won’t be killed or maimed simply because of the traditions and values we hold.

Revealed: House Ethics Committee to Investigate Rashida Tlaib for Misusing Campaign Funds

It’s just Democrat after Democrat…

Freshman Democrat Socialist Rashida Tlaib (MI) could potentially be in big trouble. Even if she’s guilty, though, liberals will likely only give her a slap on the wrist and claim she’s the victim of a right-wing smear campaign. Until then, the openly anti-Semitic Muslim continues giving the American people plenty to think about. It’s just too bad the mainstream media will continue to give her a pass. From Fox News: The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses — and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process. The document dump was related to the committee’s ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be “expanded” based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Texts and emails released by the Ethics Committee show Tlaib frantically contacting members of her staff for financial help.

Bill Clinton’s Advice to Trump: Ignore Impeachment, Pass Gun Control As Soon As Possible

Spoiler alert: it’s bad advice…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) said last night what all conservatives were thinking from the start: Democrats are looking to impeach President Trump because they know they can’t win in 2020. They are looking for any excuse to get him out of office, now that Russia and other hoaxes have failed. It’s truly stunning to witness how far the Democrat Party is willing to go to sabotage a duly-elected president in a time when unemployment is at an all-time low and the economy is thriving. Then again, this party is comprised of people who believe it’s acceptable, even cool, to murder a baby. Here’s impeached President Bill Clinton’s advice for Donald Trump. Spoiler alert: it’s not good advice. From Breitbart: On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s special coverage of the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, CA, former President Bill Clinton told President Donald Trump to ignore impeachment and pass gun control. Commenting on when the Republican-controlled House impeached him in 1998, Clinton said, “Look at how much we got done in 1998 and 1999 and even in ‘97. We had very productive actions in all three years. The only really tough year we had after the Republicans won the Congress, was ‘95 to the beginning of ‘96—when they shut the government down twice. Once the public rendered judgment on what they thought should be done, I kept working with them. That’s just an excuse.” Monica’s boyfriend added, “My message would be, look, you got hired to do a job. Every day’s an opportunity to make something good happen. And I would say, I’ve got lawyers and staff people handling this impeachment inquiry, and they should just have at it. Meanwhile, I’m going to work for the American people. That’s what I would do.” Hillary Clinton probably won’t run for…
