May182019 What Bill de Blasio Blames for Blacks Attacking Jews What does Mayor Bill de Blasio blame for the epidemic of blacks attacking Jews in Brooklyn? Global warming? No — not even that would be preposterous enough. He blames white supremacy: In a recent spate of hate crime attacks on Hasidic Jews in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, virtually all the perpetrators have been African-American, according to local activists, elected officials, and victims. So much for reality regarding the 82% increase in anti-Semitic incidents in NYC. Now let’s hear the liberal spin: “It’s really clear that forces of white supremacy have been unleashed,” de Blasio said in a press conference earlier this month. “A lot of folks used to be told it was unacceptable to be anti-Semitic, it was unacceptable to be racist and now they’re getting more permission.” They sure have gotten permission — from Democrats in Congress. Crown Heights is where Democrat kingmaker Al Sharpton whipped up a pogrom that killed Yankel Rosenbaum for being Jewish. This violence is a boon to the progressives who control the media. It lets them point to a rise in hate crimes and blame it on conservatives, despite conservatives not being involved in any way where Crown Heights is concerned.
