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.

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!´´

Vice President Joe Biden is warning his Democratic base to drop the apathy and pledge to vote in the fall midterms or see the administration´s achievements like Obamacare get sunk by a Republican majority in the House and Senate. He headlined his latest scare-mail “If we lose,” and warned that the GOP will pass the tough budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan, and repeal Obamacare. “If Republicans hold on to their majority in the House and win back control of the Senate in November -- and believe me, that´s a real possibility -- then I can guarantee you that we´ll

There will be services all week, which could draw the most pilgrims ever to the Catholic capital. John Paul II is remembered for helping to bring down communism and for inspiring a generation of Catholics. Many now call him “The Great,” only the fourth pope to have earned the moniker.

Michael Lewis’s latest best-seller, Flash Boys, released on March 31, depicts what he describes as the latest financial outrage in a “story of scandals… linked together tail to trunk like circus elephants.” This time it’s high-frequency trading, the use of algorithms and super-fast computing that allows stock trades to be executed automatically in a matter of milliseconds. Lewis argues that many high-frequency trading firms make money by essentially trading in front of large orders that they can see coming in before anyone else, thanks to super-fast data connections with stock exchanges.

Dozens of suspected al Qaeda fighters have been killed in the latest in a string of strikes against the terror organization’s Yemen affiliate over the weekend, Yemeni officials say, just days after the affiliate released a video of a large daytime militant rally. A Yemeni official with the Supreme Security Committee told ABC News overnight that on April 19, an American drone strike took out 10 members of al Qaeda but also killed three civilians who were nearby. The civilians “were in a pickup truck that suddenly appeared next to the car that was targeted,” the official said. The next day the

Obama Handles Russia Like Republicans:

President Obama came to office nursing dreams "of forging a new partnership" with a stubborn rival. When times got tough, he abandoned the relationship and adopted dusty zero-sum gain policies of his predecessors. To allies and rivals alike, he looks naïve, weak, and disconnected. This is the portrait presented Sunday by Peter Baker in his front-page New York Times story titled, "In Cold War Echo, Obama Strategy Writes Off Putin." What struck me about the piece is the unstated parallel between Obama´s handling of Russia and Republicans, and how in both cases the gap between promise and performance illustrates a fundamental

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.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms.

Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.
