Knockout? It’s the Jooooooooooos fault.

So there.

So says new New York City Councilminority Laurie Cumbo.  Which should end any discussion.

Ms. Cumbo took to her Facebook page last week to note

…that black residents in Crown Heights feared being “pushed out by their Jewish landlords.”

Once again the “black community” are victims of the white and Joooooooooooish power structure.  The important thing to be clear about is that Ms. Cumbo is not anti-Semitic in any way shape or form.

She said she admires Jewish people, but added: “The accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success.”

I’m sure when the riots start in Crown Heights, the Jewish residents will take comfort in her admiration for them.  Until they defend themselves, of course.

There’s something that Ms. Cumbo needs to understand.  She seems to think that the “black community” resents the Jewish community because they – the blacks – don’t think that Jewish success is their success.  Here’s an epiphany for you Ms. C, IT ISN’T.

Jews are successful because they have never tried to make ends meet by claiming that other people owed them.  They work hard.  They are educated.  They are resourceful.  They earn money and they save and invest.  They start and run businesses.  And they manage to do all of this even though they are easily the most reviled, most discriminated against, and most targeted people ever to walk the earth.

Your so-called “black community” is nothing but a breeding ground – quite literally – for gangsters, law breakers, victim-class takers, lay bouts, and welfare queens.

You, Ms. C, are not the first race-hustler to try to turn Crown Heights into a bonfire.  Al Sharpton came close to accomplishing the task, and he used the Jooooooooooos too.

Such textbook apologetics and excuses for crime hearken back to a different and far worse time for New York City, as does the nauseating stench of Cumbo’s classic anti-Semitic stew.

It was in the very neighborhood Cumbo now represents that the worst anti-Jewish event in modern American history took place: A three-day riot in 1991 following the accidental killing of an African-American child by a limousine driven by a Hasidic man. Two men were killed, stores were looted, and homes were targeted by Molotov-cocktail throwers through spotting the mezuzot on the doorfames. It was a shattering event for the city, not least because the mayor at the time, David Dinkins, seemed to feel as though he was powerless to act as the riot spread. His conduct during Crown Heights was so shameful it came to be one of the key reasons Rudy Giuliani ousted Dinkins from City Hall—even though the election took place two years later.

New York City is under new management.  They have a new progressive mayor, Bill DiBlasio, who makes David Dinkins look like a Tea Party favorite, and a council where Cumbo won’t stand out in her progressivism or called out for her clearly anti-Semitic views.

New York City is a riot waiting to happen.

    I’m sure some of her best friends are Jewish.

    America does have a racial issue, but the issue is that of those who use race to excuse the inexcusable, ignore critics by yelling racism rather than acknowledge the arguments of the critics and cry ‘Racist’ to distract from the failures of the left. Unfortunately, this racism is aided and abetted by the mainstream media which does not call out the racial bigots, but rather encourages and enables them.

    Now which party was the party full of racial bigots that tried to ignore reasoned rational arguments in favor of blaming race for all problems? I believe that party started with a D. Funny, they are still doing it today. In the slightly altered words from that time, “Racism today, Racism tomorrow and Racism forever” is the rallying cry of the democrats and mainstream media.

    This post is like deja vu all over again. Do bloggers even peruse their own blogs? In any event, among the hallmarks of the mental disorder a/k/a leftism are weird transference and projection. Leftists generally hate Israel and they hate Jews because deep down they despise themselves. Theirs is a self-loathing which normal people cannot contemplate. The ghastly irony is that that peculiar brand of self-loathing is so very prevalent within the urban, left-wing Jewish (BIRM) community. Some people never learn from history.

      For the first time ever I am in sympathy with a Lawrence Westlake post. :)

        Get over it.

        You do realize that this idiot just blamed jews for starting antisemitism

        • warnertoddhuston

          Re-read Westlake’s first two sentences. That is what I was agreeing with. Do either of you understand why?

          • jim_m

            I understand that this is a multi author blog and that this is not the first time that a topic has been repeated with two different authors. It won’t be the last either.

          • warnertoddhuston

            So, why the hell are you acting like I didn’t understand that this dipshit Democrat was blaming the Jews when I wrote about the goddammned story days ago?

    I suppose its too easy to encourage the jewish landlords to let them stay by *NOT* punching them in the face when no ones looking.

    Well, in that case I suppose sucker punching Jews is quite alright.
    Good to know the punks doing the knockouts aren’t to blame. //sarc

    I’m tempted to wonder how people like this get elected.
    But then all I have to do is recall what Obama and his people have done from the day they were elected and I’m not surprised at all.

    New York has turned racist. That is the only way to get votes I guess.

  • mikegiles

    She’s simply attempting to exploit the tensions that have long existed in that area between the mainly Caribbean immigrants and the insular Ultra Orthadox Lubavitch Jewish sect. It’s not so much anti-Semitism, as a tremendous clash of cultures. Things like the Lubavitch trying to get the traditional Caribbean carnival parade cancelled because it fell on their High Holy days, and they didn’t want the noise. This long simmering animosity – rather than fat Rev. Al – lead to those riots way back then. That and a member of the Rebbe’s motorcade running a red light, losing control and hitting two children. Caribbeans who like to get loud, on Friday, at the end of the work week, don’t mix well with people who won’t even turn a light switch after sun down on Friday.

    Diversion. Show us the tape.
    All the video I’ve seen show blacks attacking old/white or females, cowards.
    These are unleashed animals, Travon Martin revenge attacks by any other measure.
