NYC Politician Blames ‘Jewish Success’
for ‘Knock-Out’ Attacks

National Review Online, by Andrew Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 12/5/2013 10:22:31 AM

Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.

But she´s not a racist, nor is she an anti-Semite.
Why? Plain and simple: It´s because she´s black.

And just what does "While I personally regard this level of tenacity" mean? Was she misquoted or is she just ignorant?

She is just being true to her racist upbringing.

It is always the other person´s fault (victim mentality)and Jews are the enemy of Blacks.

Back to the Dinkins future for NYC with Deblasio. It´ll be interesting to see how long Bill Bratton lasts as police commissioner. I´m guessing he´ll be gone in two years or less. I don´t see how his style will mesh with Deblasio.

Of course black teens "see it differently." They´ve been conditioned since birth by the likes of Ms. Cumbo that work ethic is meaningless and they deserve all the goodies of living in America without having to put in the effort.

Too many generations raised on the welfare plantation.

They don´t have a clue of the concept of working hard to earn anything. They have been given free stuff their whole lives, and they honestly believe they should get the same stuff the Jews get without having to work for it.

Ok, so let´s assume that this is the real reason behind it. Why do these same people so love and adore rich rappers, black liberal politicians and NBA players?

While I don´t doubt there could be jealousy, this template does not fit. These kids are having a good old time hitting people that can´t defend themselves, a surprise sucker punch to even women. While they laugh and have a good time.

This is fun for them. I grew up AROUND these kinds of people, and they were all white. It´s a group, shared "pick on the weak and have a good time" mentality, fueled by social media.

In the 1970s I watched as a homely, hated young girl had the school bus doors closed on her jamming her in the doors (the bus driver was looking at the back wheels) while the whole bus laughed and threw things at her. Big fun. I have seen this sick behavior up close. These are sociopaths, I don´t care what their color is. Understand something Ms. Cumbo, these kids are having FUN and enjoying the experience, THAT is your problem.

It´s nothing new that Jews should be targeted. Much of that is envy of what others perceive as unwarranted success: Jews are overrepresented in monetary success, educational success, medicine, science, literature, Nobel and Pulitzer prizes (when they meant something), art and entertainment. As a group, they outstrip their ratio to the population in success in these areas.

However, they are also overrepresented in sex crimes, pornography and white collar crimes. They are also stereotypically involved in excesses of usury, nastiness and penuriousness.

This councilwoman has taken a kernel of truth and, as usual, built her black liberation theology around it, choosing a white minority to blame. Jews are handy. They always were. Go back to biblical times and it´s always the Jews who take the hit yet they are always blamed as the perpetrators.

...she was looking to “offer possible insight as to how young African American/Caribbean teens” think and how it can lead to the attacks.

She can stop looking for "insight". I have her answer: We don´t want to know "how". Knowing "how" won´t stop it. "Young African American" teens will find any excuse to claim foul or poverty, then blame other people for their dismal failures rather than looking toward their own culture of death and violence and their fractured "family" life for answers.

Democrats and their plantation mentality are to blame for this. Change the black culture of broken families, entitlements and gimmees and you will no longer have to look for Jews to blame.

It´s not Jews or Republicans who are to blame. Look no further than all the liberal-run black cities for the decay and the corruption and violence you find in the black community.

And no. The race card no longer works.

What gibberish.

Black thugs play "knockout" to prove to their friends how tough and unafraid they are. Toughness and fearlessness are prized qualities in the dysfunctional inner city culture.

Beyond that, inner city thugs don´t WANT "success" as defined by Jews or whites or even blacks who´ve made it in the larger culture. They demonstrate their contempt of that system and those people by preying on it and them. "Knockout" is part of that mindset.

As Blacks won´t rise to the Jewish level of productivity and resulting affluence, Jews need to change their behavior so as to drop down to the levels of a typical local person of color. Hang around the home/hood (or the ´chood´) more - and drink lots of malt liquor. (Although MD20/20 would be a more appropriate substitute - it is made by Mogen David).

Pretty soon we´ll be hearing stuff from the brothers like, ´´Don´t be messin´ around with them black hats. They be real bad!´´

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident.

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office.

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services.

That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W.
