Good morning, kids. To completely butcher the iconic morose musings of a barkeep named Richard Blaine, “Of all the Jew-joints, in all the Hymietowns, in all the world . . . they had to desecrate this one.”
I laughed when I saw Los Angeles has a museum called the Museum of Tolerance. That was a great episode of South Park. Actually, that episode is relevant today! Go watch it.
Anyway, Israeli actress Gal Gadot screened videos from the Hamas attack at the Museum of Tolerance. Executives and Israeli representatives attended the screening. The Museum of Tolerance required extra security because of all the threats and hate thrown at it and Gadot for showing the film:
The somber gathering took place under heavy guard. Another media outlet leaked the location at which it would be taking place, resulting in threats against the museum and necessitating an FBI advance team in the days leading up to it.
The screening ticked off the “pro-Palestine” people, who attacked Israel supporters outside of the museum:
Police were already present in the area near the museum to maintain security. AIR7 HD was over the scene as dozens of people were gathered outside the museum. Multiple fights broke out, with several people being pepper-sprayed. Police formed a skirmish line in efforts to control the crowd. Several people were seen being detained but it was not immediately clear if arrests were made.
Miguel Angel Arias, who has a Palestinian wife, claimed that people will use the footage “to justify the killing of innocent Palestinians.”
No. It’s used to show people what happened because no one believes anything from Israel. They only believe Hamas. Arias had a good point: “The screening is only for a few privileged people and it doesn’t lead to conversation.” Sadly, Jews and other Israelis have to keep replaying these videos to convince people they’re not lying about October 7. The footage literally comes from Hamas terrorists.
To add a line to my Rick quote re-mix “. . . and of all the days, they had to pick today.”
The sick thugs struck 85 years to the day of Kristallnacht, widely accepted as the opening act that began Nazi Germany’s ultimate annihilation of nearly two-thirds of Europe’s Jews.
The layers upon layers of irony would be something to behold were the events of the past month not so horrifying in the extreme. But here we are in the United States of America. Or what used to be the United States of America, where the concepts of law and order, freedom and respect have been so completely erased that to not see and understand that is to be living in denial.
The only reason that something like this could happen here is that the Junta in power, beginning with or for sure weaponized by Obama, gained their political power by giving the vermin that did this last night, that murdered Paul Kessler over on the other side in the Valley, that allowed Nidal Hassan to kill 13 unarmed soldiers at Fort Hood as well as cause billions of dollars of destruction and dozens of deaths during the “mostly peaceful” ginned-up race riots of 2020 “the space to destroy.”
All that was the lit match. In truth, the nation’s identity and soul have been drowning in a tank of gasoline for decades, its children’s minds embalmed in the flammable poison of indoctrination from pre-K through post-grad. I think it’s fair to assume that if given the opportunity, the scum that disrupted Gal Gadot’s screening could have and would have caused grievous bodily harm if not murdered any or all of the attendees. Look what nearly happened to those dozen hapless Jewish students at Cooper Union last week.
We can quibble about degrees of cruelty between them and their heroes who paraglided into that music festival, gang-raped women, and roasted alive or beheaded babies in front of their parents, but at the end of the day, the ultimate goal is the same – death to the Jews. And just to reiterate, the former did not get that from the Koran. They got it in the classroom.
The NYPD is searching for four baby-faced vandals accused of spray painting antisemitic graffiti, including multiple swastikas, on the rooftops of four Upper East Side buildings last month.
The four boys defaced the buildings near East 85th Street and 3rd Avenue around 5:20 p.m. on October 9 — just two days after Hamas terrorists launched a deadly surprise attack on Israel, cops said. Among the offensive scrawlings was the word “Hamas” in addition to several swastikas, according to police.
The group fled eastbound on East 85th Street. No injuries were reported. The incident is being investigated by the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force, police said.
Look at the surveillance shot: four well-dressed white kids from the Upper East Side, one of the most affluent sections of the city. If you didn’t know better, you’d think they were on their way to prep school, or going out to play some basketball or hang out at the local pizza joint. Hell, even go smoke a doobie and play X-Box.
But no. That’s a memory of normalcy that we can no longer delude ourselves into believing. A city that has the greatest concentration (jeez, phrasing) of Jews on the planet and long considered their safest haven. These privileged, in the real sense of the word, kids did exactly the same thing the Brownshirts in Deutchland did 90 years ago: scrawl Jude on some rooftops. The way things are going, it won’t be long before they toss molotov cocktails into a synagogue or two in broad daylight. If I really want to freak myself out, it’s entirely possible that at least one of these little darlings is Jewish.
Where are the parents? Where in hell are the parents, because if they don’t straighten these little bastards out the Infernal Reaches is going to be their ultimate reward. Meh, the mothers are all freaked out over “white Christian MAGA nationalists taking away abortion!” while the fathers have to go to the nearest bathhouse glory hole to get the sexual gratification and validation their wives refuse to give them.
The recent arrests in Sao Paulo, Brazil, of two individuals reportedly tied to Hezbollah has put the spotlight on the growing influence of Iran and Islamic regime-funded terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah in Latin America.
The two arrested individuals, who are now facing over 15 years in prison, were plotting to carry out terrorist attacks on Jewish community centers in Brazil, according to the Brazilian Federal Police. The Israeli government confirmed that its intelligence agency, the Mossad, aided Brazil in its efforts to stop the alleged plots. For the past four decades, Iran has sought influence in Latin America with significant success in socialist-led countries such as Argentina, Bolivia, and Brazil, as well as the three authoritarian regimes in the region: Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi carried out a Latin American tour in June that saw him visit Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, Iran’s closest allies in the region. During his encounter with Venezuelan socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro, Raisi asserted that Iran and Venezuela’s relation is of a “strategic” nature, with “common interests, views,” and “enemies” in a clear allusion to the United States. The cooperation of the region’s leftist governments with Iran has, in turn, allowed the Iranian-funded Hezbollah and Hamas organizations not just to operate in the region, but to form alliances with local terrorist groups.
It is largely believed that Hezbollah, through Iran’s financial backing, was responsible for the bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA) headquarters in Buenos Aires on July 18, 1994. The attack, which killed 85 people, was the worst terrorist attack in the Western Hemisphere prior to the September 11, 2001, attacks. . .
. . . The Iranian regime has not just been a historic ally of the socialist regime in Venezuela, but has been a crucial element in the continued rule of the Maduro regime following the collapse of socialism in the country.
Take a look at a map and you’ll see that Venezuela’s northernmost coast is well within MRBM range of the southern half of the United States. Iran has the missiles. And the clock is ticking on them getting nukes and putting them on warheads not long after.
But why even bother when we have a completely non-existent border? An alarming number of migrants have come from Venezuela in particular, and from many Muslim nations, as well as China. And a large percentage of those who have arrived are military aged males. But not to worry. Alejandro Mayorkas insists our border is completely secure and to doubt him is an insult and racist, or something.
Meh. The forces of global Islam don’t even need to waste their time doing this. Not when they have Merrick Garland, Christopher Wray and American academia to do their dirty work for them.
