Skip to comments.NYT makes an anti-Semitic terrorist's personal problems the story

The rules of reporting are clear insofar as there aren't any objective ones when it comes to placing public blame.
When a Bernie Sanders-loving terrorist shot up a baseball field of Republican congressmen, the media didn't ascribe blame to the senator, but rather to the shooter and rightly so. Yet when a deranged lifelong criminal with a history of bomb threats terrorizes Democratic politicians and liberal media figures, President Trump is to blame.
So now here's a new wrinkle. The latest in a string of anti-Semitic hate crimes in New York City was revealed to be committed by a liberal activist who had actually once been profiled by the New York Times. Naturally, the Times had to follow up. Except that the Times chose to make the perpetrator's personal problems the story, rather than the rise of left-wing anti-Semitism in New York City or, better yet, its victims.
In a piece originally headlined, "Man Accused of Anti-Semitic Vandalism Faces New Setback in a Life Full of Them," the Times wallows in the scrappy upbringing of James Polite a man who, might I remind you, attempted to burn Jews alive by setting five different sites affiliated with the Jewish community on fire. Lest his intentions be obscured, he is accused of scrawling "Die Jew Rats," "Hitler," "End It Now," and "Jew Better Be Ready" within the walls of Brooklyn's Union Temple, one of the targets of his arson campaign.

The NYT choices are so problematic.
It’s as if they hired right off the WWII Hitler, or USSR Cold War roster.
Odds are good that anyone still reading the Old Gray Whore is antisemitic.
...even if it’s self-loathing antisemitism!

Actually they blamed the victims for not being gun grabbers, and therefore getting what they deserved.
Because bottom line is, when the left says they care about Jews they are LYING..they DESPISE Jews, they always have..they only pretend to give a damn when it suits them politically
... and no one is even slightly confused as to why we know more about a vandal who poorly spray painted some bad things, than the guy who murdered a bunch of people a few days earlier.
NyT has been anti- Semitic for so many years I cant count. At least back to ww2 A ( sickening) case study of Jewish self- hatred or Stockholm syndrome, insofar as the papers had a significant Jewish leadership over the years. Certainly an awful representation
Always remember that the NYT is infested with racists and Israeli-hating neo-Nazis.
But they sure do love them some anti-semites! And just like Reverend Al, they hate those diamond merchants and interlopers!
Glad to see that the New York Times is still consistently anti-Semitic and/or covering it up, as it has done since the 1930’s.
