Anti-Semitic hate crimes soar in New York, media ignores them because it doesn’t fit their narrative

While the media raced to false presumptions in the assault hoax of Empire actor Jussie Smollett, the irresponsible left-wing press ignored the real hate crime surge in New York: mostly anti-Semitic attacks.

According to NBC New York, “The city has seen a sharp increase in reported hate crimes so far in 2019, the NYPD said.

Police had investigated 42 hate crimes through Feb. 4, compared with 19 at the same point last year. Most of those were anti-Semitic.”

The Daily Wire chronicled some of the high-profile incidents, beginning with the one from last month: a Jewish man in New York was beaten by three black men. Nothing was stolen. The attack was caught on video.

Two weeks before that beating, a Jewish man, 19, was “violently assaulted” as he walked past a local laundromat by a group of teenage black males.

In December, a 16-year-old Jewish teen spent a week in a hospital after being beaten by two other teens; witnesses said that the teens screamed “Kill the Jew.”

The NYPD categorized the attack as “gang related” rather than a hate crime, angering Jews in the area.

This weekend, vandals shattered the window of a Chabad in Bushwick as the rabbi and his family slept inside.

The New York Times reported in October of last year that “there have been four times as many crimes motivated by bias against Jews — 142 in all — as there have against blacks. Hate crimes against Jews have outnumbered hate crimes targeted at transgender people by a factor of 20.”

The Times also admitted in October, “anti-Semitism bypasses consideration as a serious problem in New York … because it refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy.”

In other words, it doesn’t fit the narrative.
