The media went crazy with a story about heinous vandalism on a synagogue in New York, but you’ll probably not hear anything more about it after they caught the suspect.
That’s because he sounds pretty liberal:
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 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.
The Daily Caller has a lot of screenshots from his social media and he sounds like a complete left-wing loon:
In the 2017 profile, The New York Times said Polite, who requested to join the foster care system after his mother provided “unsanitary” conditions for him, “interned with Ms. Quinn, a Manhattan Democrat, for several years, working on initiatives to combat hate crime, sexual assault and domestic violence. He also took part in her re-election campaign in 2009 and returned to help with her unsuccessful bid for mayor in 2013.”
His Facebook profile, reviewed by TheDCNF, shows that on Nov. 1, a day before the synagogue vandalism, he posted “A dream with eyes wide open. civil war is here. Nobody gotta die. Mexico, latin America, carribean vs. Jew nigger pigs. One person touch me this whole shit a smoking.”
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.
The media is really hoping to turn out Democrats at the polls by highlighting anti-Semitism and trying to connect it to Trump, but this story will likely disappear from the headlines very soon…
Here’s some people connecting this to Trump before the suspect was caught:
I’m starting to suspect that Trump may not be good for the Jews. https://t.co/sJfoiZoEyw— Molly Jong-Fast (@MollyJongFast) November 2, 2018
Swastikas were discovered on the Upper West Side yesterday, and now the inside of a Brooklyn Synagogue has been defaced with anti-Semitic threats.— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) November 2, 2018
