If you read the NYTimes or listen to AOC you might believe that racism and violence is the exclusive domain of evil white guys.
How often have we heard the radicals claim that racism is only possible when there is a power dynamic.
How often have we heard the Left denounce as ‘racist’ the same immigration policies that insist immigrants enter legally and follow the proper process. Policies they themselves are all on record holding to only a decade ago.
Will these same Leftists properly denounce as ‘racist’ this obscenely racist and heartless reaction to the racially-motivated murder of several Jewish people in New Jersey?
Some of them are literally HAPPY about these Jewish people having been murdered.
Others are complaining about ‘Jew Shenanigans’ leading to a nearby school being on lockdown. (Need we remind you that the Jews were the ones being targeted and murdered here.)
SHOCKING VIDEO: As Jewish bodies were still laying in cold blood after being murdered by terrorists in Jersey City, a rep of @AmericansAA captured spontaneous antisemitic tirades blaming Jews for their own murder & ppl cheering it on!

In the video above, one particularly telling line stated:
“They all the problem. Because if they ain’t come to Jersey City this s**t would never go on… take that s**t somewhere else.’
Talking to the Jewish interviewer on scene one even said:
“It was your kind that did it here, right?”
(Interviewer: ‘No clue.’)
“Yeah, you know. And four of y’all dead, right? Four of your people that were dead, right?”
(Interviewer: ‘I’m not from here.’)
“That’s great. If they was dead, they got shot dead. That’s great. Get the damn Jews the f**K out of here. Get these f*****g Jews get the Jews out of Jersey City.”
What’s particularly painful is that they targeted a store whose Hasidic owner can be seen in this video handing out candy to black children on Halloween although it’s not his holiday. The terrorists killed his wife, and people outside shamelessly blamed him for her death! pic.twitter.com/dFSXFDjAMc

Every time there is a report of some kind of antisemitic act the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rush to Twitter or the nearest camera to denounce — who else? — white guys on the right.
But that explicitly ignores that the ongoing problem in her own back yard of non-whites singling out Jewish people (and other visible minorities with distinctive cultural dress) for violence and harassment.
Don’t take our word for it:
New York Times, Feb 2019: “Anti-Semitic Attacks Fuel Continuing Rise in Hate Crimes in New York”
From that article (emphasis added)
In January alone, several Orthodox Jews were punched, seemingly unprovoked, in broad daylight on Kingston Avenue, the main Jewish thoroughfare in Crown Heights. In late January, a 22-year-old Yeshiva student was beaten on the street while calling his parents on the phone in Australia. A few hours later, a 51-year-old man was beaten so badly by the same assailants that he was hospitalized.
…Rabbi Eli Cohen, the executive director of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council, has begun visiting nearby public schools with Geoffrey Davis, an African-American community leader, to try to understand what may be driving the attacks, as many of the assailants arrested by the police have been young men of color.
Mr. Davis, the Democratic district leader for the 43rd Assembly District, said that one need not look far to realize what can happen when tensions in the community between black residents and Jews go unaddressed.
That was February. They got no better in September. Here’s another NYTimes article: “Racist and Anti-Semitic Graffiti Shock a Beachfront Oasis”
“Gas chamber” was scrawled on a door, and a swastika and racial slurs covered nearby walls at Silver Gull Beach Club in Queens.
…The graffiti comes as New York continues to struggle with a recent uptick in reported hate crimes, fueled in part by anti-Semitic attacks. Reports of anti-Semitic hate crimes rose to 145, up from 88, through Aug. 25 as compared with the same period last year, police data show.
We might note that Crown Heights is the very same neighborhood where Obama’s good buddy Al Sharpton did his part to instigate a race riot a few decades ago.
When will we all wake up to the fact that creating a culture of racially-motivated grievances will only serve to further inflame tensions and violence and lead this great nation down a very dangerous path?
Media corporations, uber-racialized college programs, political activist groups are all throwing sparks at some very volatile kindling.
Any clicks, or votes, or prestige you might gain for being the ‘right’ oppressed class is coming at the expense of something — the future of our nation as a whole.
Surely we’re not at the point where we hate it so much we WANT to see it collapse, are we?
Maybe we’ve got bigger problems than we thought.
