CNN goes into typical leftist downplay mode.
On Friday, just days after 11 people were murdered in a Pittsburgh synagogue, New York City , for vandalizing a New York synagogue with anti-Semitic messages.
Die Jew rats we are here, read one message, along with Jews better be ready, and Hitler.
The next day, CNN failed to report that Polite, 26, was a Democrat activist who had worked on the Obama campaign in 2008. CNN described him as a Brooklyn man arrested and charged with a hate crime for the anti-Semitic messages and criminal mischief and making graffiti. Other reports found more background on the Democrat, who had been identified through surveillance footage.
The Daily Caller found that the New York Times had profiled Polite last year, noting that he had been the adopted child of Manhattan Democrat Christine Quinn, then speaker of the New York city council, and the entire city council staff. Polite worked on Quinns reelection campaign in 2009 and pitched in with Quinns mayoral bid in 2013. Polites Facebook profile was more revealing.
On November 1, a day before the synagogue vandalism, he posted a photo of a burning American flag captioned Sometimes things take a lil heat to grow. CBS reported that police believed Polite had set fires outside seven shuls and yeshivas in Williamsburg overnight, and also captured on security cameras. In other Facebook posts, the Daily Caller reported,
Polite rails against Israel and posts about Palestinian causes.
Those details escaped notice in CNNs Saturday, November 3, story. Only after 377 words did CNN note that Polite had been a volunteer for Barack Obamas first presidential bid, registering voters and canvassing neighborhoods in New York City, and met Quinn at a gay pride rally for Obama in 2008. It was not the first time CNN had ignored or downplayed a story on anti-Semitism, particularly when it involved Democrats and those anti-Semites of whom Democrats are uncritical.
To the members of the Jewish community that dont like me thank you very much for putting my name all over the planet Im not mad at you, cuz youre so stupid. That was Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan speaking in Detroit on October 14, 23rd anniversary of the Million Man March. Call me an anti-Semite? Stop it! Im anti-termite, Farrakhan told the crowd. He also tweeted, Im not an anti-Semite. Im anti-Termite. An internet search brings up no CNN story on the Farrakhan speech.
What began with images of Jews as rats in Germany, ended with them being gassed in concentration camps in Poland, wrote Howard Feldman in the Times of Israel. When Farrakhan says that he is not an anti-Semite, he is an anti-termite, his words might be childish and stupid. But that doesnt mean that someone is not going to get hurt.
As Feldman noted, Louis Farrakhan has ingratiated himself with the liberal elite in the United States. Both Obama and the Clintons have been photographed alongside him. And whereas they publicly denounce his attitude towards Jews, the fact that they continue to be seen with him is that which empowers him. Without his social circle, all Farrakhan would be just another racist preacher selling hate on the corner of Nowhere and Irrelevant.
Empowered by Democrats, Farrakhan gets a place of honor at events such as the funeral of Aretha Franklin, in the company of high-profile Democrats such as Bill Clinton and Jesse Jackson. He also gets special treatment on social media.
Farrakhans tweet, Rick Moran explained, appeared to violate Twitter policy of language that treats others as less than human such as comparing groups to animals and viruses (animalistic), or reducing groups to a tool for some other purpose. According to a Twitter mouthpiece, the new rules had yet to take effect and no word whether Farrakhans termite tweet would violate the policy.
So Farrakhans hate on Twitter has essentially been grandfathered in, Moran wrote, and apparently, even blatant hate speech was allowed under the old rules. An internet search turned up no CNN stories on Farrakhans termite tweet. Last January it was Fox News, not CNN, that broke the story of a smiling Senator Barack Obama posing with Farrakhan in 2005.
In late February, 2018, Democrat Trayon White, a member of the council of the District of Columbia, was captured on video saying Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Yall better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation, which was a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.
Two days later, the Democrat told colleagues the Rothschilds, a European Jewish banking family descended from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, really pretty much control the federal government, and now they have this concept called resilient cities in which they are using their money and influence into local cities.
As the Washington Times reported, No one in the room, including Democratic Mayor Muriel E. Bowser, challenged Mr. Whites comments, but Bowser later told the Washington Post the comments were not acceptable.
USA Today, The Hill and other publications ran stories on Whites comments. An internet search revealed nothing from CNN, which bills itself the most trusted name in news.
The media in this country can absolutely go to hell. I’ve heard not so much as a peep from them about this, only on the internet. Matter of fact what has the left been doing the past few days? Constantly calling Trump and his supporters Nazis, that idiot Julie Louise Dreyfus comparing us to Nazis yesterday, and HERE is HARDCORE PROOF of a DEMOCRAT acting exactly like a Nazi and it is IGNORED.
Wonder where he learned to hate Jews, in his difficult childhood, or after "adoption" into the liberal academic and Democrat political activist communities.
The liberal jews in this country have a deathwish. Why on earth do they continue to support the democratic party is beyond reason
Subtle way to try to tie him to another NY man: Trump
Dems fear American Jews are going to bolt on Election Day.
I wonder why? Their party is the one of anti-semantics.
Sadly, American Jews don't know that.
As I said on another thread, the Dems are very fearful American Jews are going to bolt the party tomorrow.
Aw jeez, it was THIS thread. Do I really need more coffee?
just add it to the LONG LONG list of fake hate crimes perpetrated by the left to frame conservatives.
What do you expect from a party that denied G-d three times at the 2012 convention in Charlotte.
Hate Incorporated. A criminal enterprise.
Because like progs of all stripes, most liberal Jews support abortion on demand, gun confiscation, mass third world immigration, and the radical LGBTQ and SJW agendas. Where does one go if one has those views, the GOP? That's the reason they vote Democrat.
The security of Israel is FAR down their list of concerns. And many are in fact hostile to it and embrace Israel's enemies.
It has been reported a bit in the mainstream. In the context of what this poor underprivileged kid went through. I paid for my own college, worked. I’m privileged. I had no time to vandalize anything. Nor, since I never worked for the left political machine, no reason to direct hate at minority groups.
