Swastikas, Slurs and Torment in Town’s Schools
NY Times ^ | November 8, 2013 | Benjamin Weiser

Posted on 11/08/2013 6:27:36 PM PST by Conscience of a Conservative

The swastikas, the students recalled, seemed to be everywhere: on walls, desks, lockers, textbooks, computer screens, a playground slide — even on a student’s face.

. . .

At that point, a pickup truck pulled up nearby, and a man emerged. The man, John Barker, 42, a mechanic, cautioned that “everybody watches out for everybody.” When asked about the presence of Jewish families, he blurted out, “We don’t want them in our town.”

“They can’t drive, for number one — and they already have Sullivan County. Who really wants them here? They don’t belong here.”

Jew-haters simply following Dear Leader’s example.

New York Slimes?

Oh yeah, they’re always trustworthy.

They’d never go in for sensationalism.

Sorry, but it sounds fake. This whole article is a collection of unprovable, 3rd person anecdotes. Like War of the Worlds - someone hears a story, and suddenly they see Martians everywhere.

Emboldened to persecute Jews. Just like Obama’s deal with Iran.

Jews will fight back this time.

For some Jewish students in the Pine Bush Central School District in New York State, attending public school has been nothing short of a nightmare.

Obviously Pine Bush's fault.

Yup. The story is almost ridiculously vague.

-——Steve Fisch, agreed to talk with the boys but added: “What’s the big deal? They didn’t aim it towards her.” Mr. Fisch, in his deposition, denies saying that.-——

Wow....draw swastikas and no big deal, and don’t point that thing at someone... but make a pop tart into toy gun and you are a pariah....

Damn, if they were black they could whistle for Eric the Corrupt to charge them with “hate crimes”.

Really?? I think you missed this paragraph:
“A picture of President Obama, with a swastika drawn on his forehead, remained on the wall of an eighth-grade social studies classroom for about a month after a student informed her teacher, the student said.

Obviously, the ‘dear leader’ you refer to, is not liked, either.

The New York Times publishing this story, in effort to drum up support, from all the yeshivas in NYC, could be offhandedly tossing this in the face of the last mayor, Nanny Bloomberg,

Upstate New York, and West, have very different viewpoints than The Big Apple.

So they are Jew-haters and Obama-haters?

Or just your upstate garden run of Jew-haters and black-haters?

And the Times, Bloomberg and all the yeshivas are...aw well, you lost me there. Really.

The New York Times has the manpower to get the facts... if they wanted to... and it appears they don't.

Exactly now that the One is in power they feel empower. I do believe that one day Christians nor Jews will be safe in this nation if we do not push back liberalism.

1. If it quacks like a duck .....
2. I don’t live in New York State.
3. Do your homework, before you put your mind in the web!

New York Times? All the news that fits their views.

And if they can’t find it, then make it up or create it. Any swastikas and racist graffiti are likely to have been planted by left-wingnuts to show that racism and bigotry are still alive. Like lawyers, they need people to feel that they are oppressed victims who need their help.

The NY Slimes will do everything it can to pump up outrage against “otherness,” but they will never be able to stop the desire of people to vote their pocketbook.

OK, maybe you’re willing to give someone a little break because they’re different from you, but if you feel that your pocket is being picked every time you turn around, you’re going to distrust that person and vote against them! Sorry, NY Slimes, sad (for you) but very, very true!

And come November 2014 most Jews will still reliably vote for the Rats. “Never again” has become a hollow phrase.
