An arrest has been made in the Brooklyn synagogue hate-vandalism case... Earlier today, the police released a photo from interior security camera footage of a man wanted in connection with the vandalism:

They arrested him a few hours ago, but have not released details. They think he is also responsible for a string of small fires set at other Brooklyn area synagogues (https://www.democraticunderground.com/100211356787) over the past day.

The article notes that he is now at a psychiatric facility for observation.

Ooops, that didn't garner the results they expected or wanted. No matter. They can still blame President Trump.

2. Why the surprise.

Black people are no more immune to antisemitism than Jews are to anti-black racism. This individual may be mentally disturbed, but Brooklyn has seen a spate of attacks on Jews by African-Americans spouting Farrakhanite horseshit. So when I saw this was in Brooklyn I figured it was more likely that than another MAGA attack.

3. Because there are hateful people among all groups. Crazies are stoked by the tone at the top.

Please stay alert but don't forget the times when these groups have come together for each other and continue to do so.

5. AMEN !!! "Crazies are stoked by the tone at the top."

Five comments. Do you think there would have only been five comments if the picture was of a white guy?

They don't care about antisemitism. College campuses are rife with Antisemitism, and DUers have NEVER commented on it that I've seen. Some applaud the BDS movement, justifying that it's anti Israel for good reason and not what it clearly is...Antisemitism.

Heh! That idiot's vandalism forced the cancellation of a Prog GOTV event that was to feature some actress. The actress, reflexively and before the suspect was known blamed the vandalism on racism and antisemitism. She was half right and, predictably, very wrong.

Antisemitism is not uncommon among blacks. Evidently they, like 11cents have forgotten that significant contributors - in sweat and blood as well as $$ - to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s were Jewish. I am not aware of any significant amount of anti-black bigotry among Jewish people.

What’s up with the DUmmies catering to the Jews all of a sudden? Anyone with half a brain knows they hate Israel and love Palestine. Now it seems like blacks are being pushed back in favor of their new friend, the Jews.

Their hatred for Trump is greater, and they think Trump = Antisemite somehow is a Gotcha narrative.

NYC Synagogue Vandalism Suspect Is Former City Hall Anti-Hate Crime Intern (https://dailycaller.com/2018/11/03/nyc-synagogue-vandalism-suspect/)


The suspect in the vandalism of a New York synagogue was a Democratic activist and former City Hall intern who worked on anti-hate crime issues, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

He is a “queer” black man informally adopted by a Jewish couple, and The New York Times’ charity, the Neediest Cases, helped pay for him to go to college where his focus was African American studies, according to a 2017 New York Times profile.
...
A year ago, The New York Times profiled Polite, noting that he was an LGBT foster youth who “could defy the statistics” after becoming the “adopted child of the Quinn administration,” as Christine Quinn, then the speaker of the New York city council, put it. “And it wasn’t just me. It was the entire City Council staff.”
...
At 3:46 a.m. on Nov. 1, Polite posted a cell-phone picture of a burning American flag, with the caption “Sometimes things take a lil heat to grow.” Police suspect him of setting fires at “seven shuls and yeshivas in Williamsburg” that same night, before the temple vandalism. Security footage captured that, too.

This guy inverts Progs' favorite narratives! He's: Black; a Democrat; part of the "Hate Crimes" bureaucracy; gay. It's like reality has it in for Progs or something! :rotfl:

I have a feeling he's done more antisemitic @#$% than "just" what he did that night. Perhaps some antisemitic @#$% NY Progs have been attributing to Trump?

If you look closely you can plainly see the guy is a white supremist decked out in black face.

A political event with two Democratic candidates at the Union Temple of Brooklyn was canceled Friday after attendees found graffiti saying “Die Jew Rats” and “Hitler,” which one of the candidates said highlighted the need to vote out “hate.” Police arrested 26-year old James Polite later that night based on surveillance footage

11 cents called it right, regarding Farrakhan and the anti-Semitism that he spreads. I wish more of my fellow dems/libs would denounce him.

I'm a bit surprised (s)he wasn't roundly chewed out for the accurate statement. But the thread garnered few responses ... this isn't the narrative we seek, move along.
