Will those on the left condemn this anti-Semitism, or nah?
Anti-Semitism is on the rise and there has been a hushing up of some violent attacks in certain areas due to the race of the perpetrators. It’s horrendous Media(D) malfeasance that underscores the implicit racism in reportage. In the age of identity politics, where people are told to cast their vote based on their skin color, gender, sexuality, etc. it’s somehow bad form to identify the identity of the perpetrators who are committing random, violent anti-Semitic attacks. This has been going on for a long time and has been ginned up by race-baiters beloved by the Media(D) like Al Sharpton and prominent “black leaders” like disgusting racist, Louis Farrakhan who is embraced by leftists.
That was precisely what happened in what surveillance footage indicated was a targeted attack on a kosher supermarket in a Hasidic community in Jersey City.
Two shooters, three crime scenes, and six dead, including one police officer.
The shooting began when Detective Joseph Seals, 40, approached one of the gunmen at a cemetery in connection with a homicide investigation. Detective Seals was shot and killed. The suspects fled in a truck and opened fire — in the middle of the day — in the busy neighborhood, eventually killing three bystanders in a kosher market in a Hasidic neighborhood. The market was located next to a synagogue and a school with more than 100 students.
Initially, police said that the shooting at the market was random and not a hate incident. Later, however, Mayor Steven Fulop said on Twitter that surveillance footage appears to show that the market was targeted.
Today, the assailants, who were killed in the attack, were identified as David Anderson and Francine Graham. Anderson has connections to the Black Hebrew Israelites, the same group that was harassing the Covington Catholic High School kids on that fateful day.
From the New York Times:
The Black Hebrew Israelites have been labeled a hate group. The suspect wrote anti-Semitic and anti-police posts, an official said.
Investigators are examining links between the attackers and the Black Hebrew Israelite movement.
An assailant involved in a prolonged firefight in Jersey City, N.J., that left six people dead, including one police officer, had published anti-Semitic and anti-police posts online and investigators believe the attack was motivated by those sentiments, a law enforcement official familiar with the case said on Wednesday.
Anderson was clearly an anti-Semite according to reports.
The official said the names of the two suspects were David Anderson and Francine Graham. Mr. Anderson appeared to have a connection to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, which is designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a legal advocacy group that tracks such movements.
The extent of Mr. Anderson’s involvement in that group remains unclear, the official said. The Black Hebrew Israelites have no connection with mainstream Judaism.
Investigators also found a manifesto-style note inside the assailants’ van, the law enforcement official and another official familiar with the case said.
The document, which was described as brief and “rambling,” suggested no clear motive for the shooting. Investigators also found a live pipe bomb inside the vehicle, the law enforcement official said.

Anti-Semitism is wrong, but for some reason, it’s ignored if the perpetrator isn’t a white supremacist — black identitarian groups who spout racist tropes are totally fine, I guess.
Why can’t our Media(D) betters condemn anti-Semitism no matter who the perpetrator is?
Did we learn nothing from history — even recent history like the Tree of Life shooting?
Nah, I guess it’s just easier to label Trump “Literally Hitler” for broadening the definition of anti-Semitism.
What a world we live in.
