NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio Says This Group Is Responsible For Anti-Semitism
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio made another idiotic statement. I swear it’s like he’s not even trying to think
He said that the right wing conservatives are to blame for anti-Semitism, not the left.
Is this guy even serious? I feel like this is a joke.
We literally have Democratic representatives in the House who are openly anti-Semitic and has been called out on it on numerous occasions.
According to The New York Post,
Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday that anti-Semitism is a “right-wing movement” — while rejecting a claim that the left plays any role in discriminating against Jews.
“I think the ideological movement that is anti-Semitic is the right-wing movement,” de Blasio said at a Brooklyn press conference Tuesday about the increase of hate crimes in New York City. Hate crimes against all minority groups are up 64% compared to this time last year. Anti-Semitic incidents have spiked by 90%.
De Blasio said he did not agree with a claim by a reporter that there is also rising anti-Semitism “on the left in the BDS movement and around the world.” The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement is a largely left-wing campaign to ban Israeli products.
“I want to be very, very clear, the violent threat, the threat that is ideological is very much from the right,” de Blasio said, adding that the perpetrators trace their history back to Nazism and fascism.
The man clearly has no idea what is going on in the world, even in his own city.
The Daily Wire reported,
Both Democrats and Republican members of the New York City Council condemned de Blasio’s comments, according to the Post. Brooklyn Democrat Chaim Deutch said he had “not seen any white supremacists coming in here committing these hate crimes.”
Staten Island Republican Joe Borelli had, perhaps, the best quip in response to the mayor’s claims.
“A simple look at where anti-Semitic hate crimes have occurred just disproves this – unless you count central Brooklyn as the home of a vast right-wing conspiracy,” the councilman said.
If you want to know where the roots of anti-Semitism lie, look no further than the left. They’re your culprit.
