Swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti were found all over the Nassau Community College campus. The Media (D) jumped on the story as an example of the hate of ‘Trump Supporters’. They were wrong.
Jasskirat Saini, age 20, admitted that he was responsible for the graffiti because he was feeling ‘bullied’ by members of the Jewish community in his neighborhood.
Nassau Police arrested a man on Tuesday who’s suspected of leaving swastika graffiti around a Long Island college.
Police said Jasskirat Saini, 20, of Plainview, is responsible for drawing swastikas several different times at various locations on the campus of Nassau Community College.
The incidents began Oct. 15 when three swastikas were found drawn inside a men’s bathroom. In two more incidents later that month, graffiti was found in additional men’s bathrooms.
Swastikas were again found on a stair handrail and on a wall Dec. 7. On Dec. 16, multiple swastikas were found again in a men’s bathroom.
During the investigation Tuesday, Nassau County Police said they found Saini drawing two swastikas on the exterior wall of Building H, and a KKK on the floor of F Building Cluster 225 at Nassau Community College.
Saini has been charged with aggravated harassment and will be arraigned on Wednesday in Hempstead.
The charges are connected with 110 anti-Semitic drawings, involving 10 cases at Nassau Community College, said Nassau Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter. Each count is punishable by up to four years in prison.

The Long Island Press had thought the hate graffiti was done by Trump supporters:
The swastikas were uncovered by the college’s staff on Oct. 15, 28, 29 and Dec. 2, LeBrun said, adding that the perpetrator could face one to four years in prison on a Class E felony. On Friday evening police responded to NCC yet again after a student found the words “Germany” and “Heil Hitler” drawn with a black marker inside the men’s bathroom of the “E” building, police said.
Although three of the incidents occurred before Nov. 8, the latest discovery has further troubled minority and Jewish groups amid a surge of hate crimes across the country following the election of Donald Trump.
Earlier this week, Nassau police said it is investigating a hate crime in Mineola in which “Make America White Again”—a play on President-elect Donald Trump’s oft-repeated slogan—as well as a racial slur and swastikas were found spray-painted on a Mineola sidewalk…
…“It seems to me that since the election there hasn’t been a day when…I haven’t seen something in the paper,” said Solomon, as he referenced various recent news articles, including one about US Jews struggling with anti-Semitism.
“I think we have to connect the dots here. There are dangerous winds of hate, which are blowing across America,” he added. “And whether it’s under the guise of alt-right or nationalism or Brexit, or whatever you call it, things are happening that are inciting the passions of those people in this country.”
Isn’t that just like the Media (D) to assume that it’s the fault of Trump voters?
Because people weren’t a-holes before the election of Donald Trump.
We’re told that there has been an increase in these incidents of hate since the election.
There has certainly been an increase in incidents of FAKE HATE.
Perhaps soon the Media (D) will learn to not throw blame around.
