As regular readers know, many hate crimes, breathlessly reported and wailed over by the media, are in fact, hoaxes, perpetrated by Leftists upset because the actual number of so-called hate crimes is too low to support their narratives of normal American evil and oppression. Others are the fevered imaginings of the perpetually aggrieved, leftists that see oppression everywhere, as in this story of a noose found at a college.
It turned out to be a shoelace someone lost. A student helpfully hung it on a doorknob in the hope whoever lost it would find it.
When an actual Leftist hoaxer is discovered, they invariably explain they did it because that’s what normal Americans, haters all, really think and want to do; they just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Besides, it’s important to raise awareness about all the hate crimes that aren’t actually happening, but should, if the narrative is correct, and as we all know, leftist narratives can’t possibly be wrong.
Following the recent Pittsburgh synagogue attack, leftists have been stretching the limits of rationality even further than usual to try to claim President Trump was responsible, even though the shooter was a vicious anti-Semite who hated President Trump because he thought him too cozy with Jews. But Trump must be responsible, because tone, and hate, and racist and reasons and TRUMP!
The current political climate is ripe for Leftists, who, if they can’t find actual hate crimes, boldly stand ready to manufacture them, as Powerline reports:
On Thursday evening, a comedian named Ilana Glazer was scheduled to perform at a synagogue in Brooklyn as a get-out-the-vote event. The performance was canceled when anti-Semitic graffiti was found scrawled throughout the synagogue. The New York Timesreported on the story. The Times article looks to me as though it was initially written from a typically liberal point of view, and then, when the perpetrator was identified and caught, that information was inserted into the story after the fact. The two portions of the article are oddly assorted:
‘A get-out-the-vote event at a Brooklyn synagogue featuring the comedian Ilana Glazer was canceled on Thursday night after anti-Semitic graffiti, including the words ‘Die Jew Rats,’ was discovered scrawled on the temple’s walls, the police and officials at the synagogue said.
The vandalism, which is being investigated as a hate crime by the Police Department, jarred residents in a deeply progressive area of Brooklyn. It occurred on the heels of the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue last week and a recent spate of similar graffiti incidents in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
The Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the incident, the police said. Other words written on the walls inside the synagogue included: ‘We are here,’ ‘Hitler,’ ‘Jew Better Be Ready’ and ‘End it now,’ the police said.’
New York’s Comeyesque, cop-hating socialist mayor couldn’t help himself:
Mayor Bill de Blasio condemned the vandalism on Friday morning on Twitter. ‘This is the vilest kind of hate,’ Mr. de Blasio wrote, adding: ‘We will fight anti-Semitism with every fiber of our being. The N.Y.P.D. will find the perpetrators of this hate crime and hold them accountable.
New York’s Governor, for who America was never great, also chimed in:
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said he was asking the state’s Hate Crimes Task Force, which includes the State Police and the State Division of Human Rights, to investigate the incident. ‘The disgusting rhetoric and heinous violence in this nation has reached a fever pitch and is ripping at the fabric of America, and it must stop,’ the governor said.
Fortunately, the crack Hate Crimes Task Force didn’t have to swing into action. Security cameras recorded the horrible, white-privileged, right wing, Trump-loving bigot:
Unfortunately, he turned out to be a gay, black Democrat operative, one James Polite,who has a long history of self-aggrandizing publicity seeking, and entanglement with the New York Democrat political establishment. Unz.com explains:
The national media has been full of storiestoday about the discovery of anti-Semitic graffiti at a liberal Brooklyn synagogue last evening. Well, new information has now come to light …
New York City Council Democrats latched onto Polite as a rags-to- respectability story. They made him an intern, and even managed to get him into Brandeis University.
“But as he got older, Mr. Polite, who says he identifies as queer and does not base attraction on gender, said he felt misunderstood at home. …
After graduating from high school, Mr. Polite enrolled in a preparatory year at Brandeis. … Months before that birthday, a Brooklyn couple learned about the possibility of fostering him. The couple, Josh Waletzky and Jenny Levison, said they had wanted to foster an “L.G.B.T.Q. youth” on the brink of aging out of the system.
That, gentle readers, is virtue signaling on a grand scale.
Despite the assistance, Mr. Polite struggled at Brandeis. Smoking marijuana, he said, became a coping mechanism to manage his stress…. During treatment, he learned he had bipolar disorder, for which he is now medicated.
… Mr. Polite hopes to graduate in May with degrees in African-American studies and political science, and took two classes over the summer to stay on pace. In June, Children’s Aid used $856 from the Neediest Cases Fund for school supplies and fees not covered by his financial aid package.
Perhaps a bit less pot smoking might help in hastening graduation, or am I slighting Mr. Polite’s unique and invaluable culture? The New York Daily News furthers the story:
A vandal who scrawled anti-Semitic graffiti in a Brooklyn synagogue and set fires around several other Jewish places of worship was arrested Friday, police sources said.
Cops committed James Polite, 26 of Bedford-Stuyvesant to the psychiatric ward at Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn. [skip]
Update: Judging from Polite’s Facebook page, which mentions Brandeis and shows him appearing to undergo a psychotic break around Halloween or the day of the crime, it’s almost certainly the same James Polite.
He is charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime and making graffiti, cops said.
As this is written I’ve been unable to find any additional comments from Mayor de Blasio or Governor Cuomo. Imagine that.
One might be tempted to think this would put a crimp in the narrative. After all, Polite is a black, gay Democrat operative/project. I’m sure it will be explained away because he’s crazy, though that wouldn’t—to normal people—make anyone feel better about the Democrats that nurtured and bankrolled him. Perhaps they didn’t notice because they’re equally crazy and drugged?
As to the narrative of normal American hate, I’m sure this incident merely illustrates how white male dominated, normal society forces oppressed peoples like Mr. Polite to do the things all woke people know normals really want to do, though they don’t seem to get around to it terribly often. Perhaps white privilege makes them too lazy to act out their raging, obsessive hatreds? So by their mere existence, they’re obviously forcing morally superior Leftists to do it for them. Those normals are sneaky that way.
