Arizona Anti-Semitic Vandalism Suspects Arrested

A large menorah made out of pipes was reassembled to form a large Nazi swastika.

This is being called "vandalism" and not a "hate crime" now because, well, figure it out for yourselves.

The news doesn't make the narrative; now the narrative makes the news.

11 It's one of those obvious yet incomprehensible things, that if you lie to people enough, they stop believing you.

Speaking of mistrust of experts, though admittedly the current crop of journalists seems to lack expertise even in journalism.

49 I was riffing on NPR in the last thread. It's germane to this one, too. The other day, I was tuning round the dial in the car, and was treated to a segment on _Fresh Air_ about the vandalism in the Mt. Carmel Jewish cemetery in Philly.

This long and lachrymose meditation (by a lefty professor of literature and a winner of the National Jewish Book Award) came down to blaming the dreaded specter of "right-wing nationalism" for the toppled headstones.

This attribution of fault being made despite the facts that (a) there's absolutely not one whit of evidence regarding who did this stuff, (b) "right-wing nationalists" aren't exactly profusely present in Filthydelphia these days, and (c) there are large blocs on the political _left_ who have a hard time containing and concealing their dislike of Jews.

Nope, "right-wing nationalism" and Trump allusions it is! Roll tape!

58 Why wouldn't they investigate it as a hate crime? I worked in a warehouse on the outskirts of Atlanta a few years ago and heard more "passive" anti-semitism there then I've ever heard in podunk Georgia.

59 So someone here in AZ spray painted swastikas at my kids elementary school. Became a big story on the news, etc, even though it was something that took 10 minutes to clear off.

They found the kid that did it, his dad is an attorney and he's like 13, etc. I can almost guarantee you it's a liberal family and just a kid acting out.

Regardless, the media is why the "swastika' thing is done, they always think it's white supremacists to push their narrative so it gets big play.

73 What this shows is that the incessant indoctrination into white supremacy that is endemic in our nation, the institutional racism, is internalized even by people of color, and makes them act in ways that aren't very good. The people who are promoting this culture of white supremacism, and the new administration under President Bannon, as I like to say, in the white house, that we know is giving a platform to the alt right, need to be taken to task for this.

Someone (might have been here, I don't remember) mentioned entertaining some clients from the PRC, who would drop the occasional Jewish joke all night.
When asked, they admitted they didn't know the first thing about religion and wouldn't know a Jew if they met one, just that it's funny and acceptable to make jokes about them. It's like a black hole where one you go past the event horizon, you eventually end up at the singularity of anti-semitism.

And wheels-within-wheels. What also gets me is how easy, in a realistic scenario of violence, it would be for someone to shout an ethnic slur (or something that could be perceived as an ethnic slur) as the effect, not the cause of an altercation.

Kind of like the old comic routine (Richard Pryor?) about stupid sh*t white people say when pissed off. So call some assh*le a c*cksucker in a fight and you go to Reeducation Camp for Anti-Ghey Hate Crime (TM), though the a-hole was just being an a-hole and you just reached for the most angry thing you could say.

110 What also gets me is how easy, in a realistic scenario of violence, it would be for someone to shout an ethnic slur (or something that could be perceived as an ethnic slur) as the effect, not the cause of an altercation.

Like yelling at girls outside a dorm to quiet down because they sound like a "herd of buffalo" and being charged with hate and racism.

It shouldn't pass constitutional muster under Equal Protection, but do you really want to be the Republican politician making the case that someone who sprays swastikas on a mosque should have the charges dropped and just get a slap on the wrist?

It's not politically popular and people unfortunately just assume you're making the case because you tacitly support it.

Basically a prosecutor gets "discretion" to charge you with either misdemeanor vandalism or minor assualt vs a life-altering felony based on f-all.

The simple answer is no one wants to be 'that' guy who is known for dismantling them even if he could find a sympathetic court. And considering the rulings on Trump's EOs, it's easy to calculate the chance of that happening.

Also, remember the hate crime laws for the most part don't invent new criminal laws. They are for the most part enhancements on penalties not actual new felonies.

I am fine with that standard so long as it is applied evenly. So long as the left is doing things like judges violating the Constitution because they claim the President engaged in wrongthought, they need to be bludgeoned with the weapon they created. That means holding shithead leftist teenagers legally responsible as they would the right-leaning teenagers that the left imagines engaging in "hate crimes".

Comey is head of the FBI. The FBI's mandate is law enforcement inside the US. It is, by law, not supposed to spy outside the US.

I'm mostly just horsing around, but traditionally what you say has some truth: Jews tended to be a political minority, and actively discriminated against by law and by tradition, and yes, in such situations you kept your head down, as a matter of simple survival.

But at least in England, Canada, the United States and Australia and to a lesser degree in France, for the last 50-100 hundred years (depending), Jews have not been particularly passive in the face of violent threats. It is true that we are not prone to rioting, but there is no shortage of Jews where I live who would be happy to break heads where they felt it was required. The difficulty is actually restraining some of those guys.

It annoys me when people say "courts have said". No, it's not "courts", it's judges have said. Using the term court instead of judge (or judges) makes it seem like there's no fault. Oh well a "court" said something, I guess it must be correct. A court is a thing, and you can't debate with a thing right? Compare that to saying a judge said it. A judge is a human. Humans makes mistakes, humans have biases, humans are assholes. Decisions made by people (judges) can be challenged. But decisions made by things...well...not so much.

Just something that has always bugged me.

Posted by: rickb223 at March 20, 2017 03:38 PM (Uohrc)

167 This is crucial:

In the Old Days, when a person created a swastika near a Jew, the person was saying this:

"I am a Nazi, and you are a Jew. This swastika represents my ideology, which is to hate/oppress/kill all Jews."

HOWEVER, nowadays, when a person creates a swastika near a Jew, the person is saying this:

"You are a Jew, and Jews are Nazis. This swastika represents YOUR ideology, which is to hate/oppress/kill all Palestinians. This swastika is not my way of declaring my ideology, but instead is my way of accusing you Jews of being Nazis."

And least this is the thought process that goes on in the minds of modern-day leftists and their running dogs.

They think that this subtle-but-important distinction absolves them of being "anti-Semites."

But of course what it really happening is that, just as with the actual Nazis of the 1930s, the people making and displaying the swastikas these days are getting the exact same thrill as their Nazi forebears.

Stripping away all the bullshit double-reverse political posturing, it all boils down to "By creating/displaying this swastika, I am announcing my hatred of Jews." This is what the left refuses to admit.

177 My understanding is that the FBI generally takes direction from the DOJ.

So that if the FBI is investigating Trump/Russia, it's because the DOJ asked them to. If so, presumably this was the DOJ under Lynch that did so.

If the FBI isn't investigating leaks, presumably it's because the Sessions-led DOJ hasn't gotten to it yet.

178 155 My black, former Marine, 3 tours in Vietnam, high school history teacher was very much against the idea of hate crimes.



He recounted a story of a guy who was outside a payment office (?
old details half remembered) who was determined to take out the first
guy that came along and steal the money. He was white. The first guy out
was black. He succeeded in both getting his money and getting caught,
leading to a hate crime prosecution.

179 Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

A significant minority, four out of 10 respondents, said the border crossers could make Canada "less safe," underlining the potential political risk for Trudeau's Liberal government.

The increasing flow of hundreds of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months has become a contentious issue in Canada.

There has been broad bipartisan support for high levels of legal immigration for decades in Canada. But Trudeau has come under pressure over the flow of the illegal migrants. He is questioned about it every time he appears in parliament, from opponents on the left, who want more asylum-seekers to be allowed in, and critics on the right, who say the migrants pose a potential security risk.

My impressions may be a bit skewed by said friend, whose husband is a traditional Christian pastor. But look at black politicos today. Contrast them with those of the Civil Rights era. Big change.

246 The left's oppressor/oppressed mental dichotomy also feeds this. If you're not oppressed you're automatically an oppressor. When Israel stopped being a victim and stood up for itself, they automatically became an oppressor.

If you grow up with / are surrounded by lefty thought, this is the world as you see it.

Now, the details obviously don't need to match reality, I mean, Israel is surrounded by enemies many times its size and is still "the oppressor."

year for fear that a large gathering of Mexicans would be a target for a
mass ICE raid. I shit you not.

Heard that the tattoo removal places are getting big business from the gang bangers in case ICE decides to "profile". Wonder if some government program covers the cost for them?

249 History does show that SocioPolitico bullies seek
out the Jews ... who typically take it. Why do they take it ? My guess
is because, other than in Israel, they're a minority.



But take it they usually do.





Posted by: ScoggDog at March 20, 2017 03:27 PM (gyi7u)

No. It is because historically Jewish resistance to "bulling", until recently (last 100) years, has been unsuccessful, not because there was not any.

In Mexico itself, Cinco de Mayo is a holiday, but it is quite a minor holiday, and generally goes unncelebrated. I guess the closest thing in American terms would be June 6 -- D-Day. It celebrates an important historical military victory (as does Cinco de Mayo), but the average person pretty much ignores it.

Yeah, at first it was just a festival to celebrate chicano heritage, meant to be apolitical like St. Patrick's Day. That is, it was supposed to be for everyone and anyone to have fun--- an inclusive party allowing diversity! They picked the date because the USA was on Mexico's side against the French, so it worked for an AMERICAN fest.

I remember going to a Cinco de Mayo picnic in the hollows of West Virginia a couple of decades ago. It was an excuse for a fun theme party. You could drink, make tacos, and wear silly hats. Smack a pinata.
And not a chicano within 100 miles!

Now? It's been politicized, which is to say it has been utterly ruined.

Fun fact: circa 6% of the British population used to go to university. (Now changing much like here, with a drive to get everyone to go to university, with the inevitable concomitant dilution of academic standards.)

Paradoxically, Brits, even sophisticated ones, used to think that "Dynasty" and "Dallas" reflected life in America. It's kind of like W being an idiot and an evil genius, all at the same time.

Americans think that Brits all live in manors with gravel driveways along which the servants are lined up on one's arrival. Upper and middle class Americans that that they would be the ones driving up, little realizing that they would be the ones lined up along the driveway, not driving up it.

And forget geography. I was once asked what would happen if it rained across the US on election day (Brits ruminate that in the corresponding situation rain would suppress the Labour vote.)

"What would we do if it rained on a given day? Across the entire effing country? Start building arks is what we'd do."

They have no idea how big the US is.
