From the New York Daily News:

Cops seek two in Brooklyn Heights swastika graffiti incident
By NOAH GOLDBERG
| NEW YORK DAILY NEWS | NOV 03, 2018 | 8:15 PM

Police want to speak with two persons of interest in a swastika-scrawling incident that occurred on a quiet street in Brooklyn.

The anti-Semitic messages, drawn in white chalk, were found on Garden Place in Brooklyn Heights around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Police released photos Saturday of two men taken at the scene of the incident. One man had something small and white in his hand, though police could not confirm if it was the chalk used to draw the swastikas.

… Reports of anti-Semitic graffiti around the city have spiked in the last month, cops said.

  3. Chalk, all this was about freakin’ chalk?! Why didn’t they just get an old t-shirt and erase it and go on with the services. Who these days isn’t a drama queen, is what I want to know.

    In my day, we’d have used spray paint, yeah, enamel, that latex is for pussies. Haha, I swear that I did not even see that joke until I typed it!

  4. So what is the prime motivator of Blacks scrawling anti-Semitic graffiti? Is it that they are expressing raw anti-Jewish sentiment or are they hopping to pin this on ‘White Nationalists’ to demonize Whites?

  13. Not totally OT:

    The upcoming film ‘Welcome to Marwen’ features Steve Carrell playing artist and photographer Mark Hogancamp, who was beaten nearly to death by a group of men (one of them black) outside a bar after he told them he liked to cross-dress. He was the subject of a book that the film is based on: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marwencol_(film)

    The trailer for the Hollywood production however features him getting beat up by a bunch of all-white “Nazi thugs”:

    There is also no mention of cross-dressing in the trailer.

    Is this a case of Jewish-controlled Hollywood appropriating an anti-LGBT crime by passing it off as anti-Semitism? (at least in the advertising materials, which inform public opinion of the film & are a piece of media in themselves)

  14. @Perspective

    Based on my observations IQ 80 street thugs behave a lot like dumb 12 year old boys trying to one up each other in terms of mischief. Both groups like to scribble swastikas on things sometimes even if they know next to nothing about Jews. It’s an ‘edgy’ thing you’re not supposed to do, so they do it for laughs. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is what happened here.

    People have been wondering why the writers turned the real-life assailants into neo-Nazi gang members for the script when in reality they were nothing of the sort.

    Simple answer: they had to.

    The real life victim of the assault *did* use dualistic Nazi imagery to deal with his anger. He did this as someone who was left mentally retarded after his beating. So, his story proves that Nazi comparisons are the recourse of literal retarded people. Since people in Hollywood and other loud voices on the left have been doing an awful lot of that lately, that narrative could not stand. Thus, in the fictional version, he made doll Nazis because of real Nazis, not because of the over-emotional, confused reasoning of a damaged brain.

    Two New Zealand women who were ordered to pay damages by an Israeli court for their role in Lorde cancelling a Tel Aviv concert

    Last week an Israeli court ruled Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab of New Zealand must pay damages to Israeli teenagers Shoshana Steinbach, Ayelet Wertzel and Ahuva Frogel totalling more than NZ$18,000 ($11,700) for writing a letter urging Lorde to cancel her gig, which she did.

    Jews rule the Galaxy, all the way in to the Central Black Hole. Unapproved actions, especially influencing of gentiles, must be persecuted!

    (The U.S. fully agrees with this, because — hell, Saddam and Al Qaeda and Iran all did 9/11. And no-one else! And they all will pay.)

    Completely off-topic: A funny not from a Jew writing on Jews in Dune:

    https://jewishreviewofbooks.com/articles/1633/jews-of-dune/

    But the flip side of this denigration of the Jews as a “fossil-people” is a Christian anxiety that the Jews—who claim biological kinship with the patriarchs, prophets, and messiah—naturally possess that with which Christians have a more uncertain relationship. Herbert’s Dune novels are all animated by the conviction that the truth is in our genes. The problem Jews pose for Hebert [sic], then, is not that they are unnecessary to his fictional universe, but that they appear to anticipate it because of their familial, corporeal relationship with the divine. At one point, a Bene Gesserit member remarks: “Jews are amused and sometimes dismayed at what they interpret as our copying them. Our breeding records dominated by the female line to control the mating pattern are seen as Jewish.” There appears to be a kind of theological resentment at work.

  45. America is obviously a dangerous place for Jews. Maybe some should return to their “Safe European Home”?;)

    They’re most likely to have to deal directly with Israeli immigrant landlords.

    When I first moved to New York, I lived with 3 roommates on the West Side, and our landlords were a couple of Iraeli immigrants. They refused to turn the boiler on to give heat to their tenants until the temperature hit the high ’40′s to ’50′s. I got to know that husband and wife team, and they seemed like sociopaths. We were struggling students, and didn’t have the cash flow to heat our large place with electric heaters. All we were asking for was to be able to get up in the morning without being able to see fog on our breath. It was two winters of hell.

    We all came from towns that had hardly any Jews at all, so these people were our first introduction to their culture, and we weren’t fans. I remember one evening we were all sitting in the living room freezing our asses off, and one of my roommates said, “you know, maybe Hitler was on to something…” we all laughed and agreed.

    Whenever I read about any shenanigans about the Jews, ESPECIALLY those born in Israel, my mind always goes back to 4 kids, stuck in NYC, trying to talk an obnoxious Jewish woman wearing an expensive outfit into asking her Puerto Rican super to raise the thermostat on her boiler, so we wouldn’t be freezing our asses off every night, followed her arrogant, dismissive response.

    New York born and raised Jews are a mixed bag, but Every Israeli-born Jew I’ve ever been forced via circumstance to deal with have been negative Jewish stereotypes, with no exception, precisely as described in Mien Kamph, and they’re not in the least self-conscious about it, strangely.

    If the swastika artist is black or Puerto Rican, it’s likely they have their reason to chalk a swastika on the sidewalk in front of their building. It’s not because they’re bored. It’s because they’re freezing in an apartment full of vermin, and their Jewish landlords telling them to deal wirh it.

    At the time, I was on to bigger and better things, so I just made note of it, and moved on. If I were financially stuck with those landlords for a long period of time, I still wouldn’t draw a swastika in my building… but I’d UNDERSTAND…

    Last I heard those famous defenders of the free press, the Turks, were claiming that the reason there was no body is that the Saudi consulate had dissolved Khaashaqji in a vat of acid, presumably on the premises. Even BBC radio is backing off their earlier righteous tone, and permitted criticism of press credulity, balanced by an “American” who claimed that the press was not hyping the Khaashaqji story as a way of attacking a Saudi-connected American president because the press does not attack Donald Trump as far as he can tell.

    I’ve never really fully understood the attraction of the skins to ska, since they were in the forefront of the push-back in the 1960s and 1970s against non-white immigrants to the UK—I guess it must have been some kind of working class solidarity at the street level and commonality of clubs and so on.

    Skinhead movement grew out off the Jamaican “rude boys” style. I guess there was commonalities in experiences in school, at work, at play. The working class was second class in the UK. Skinheads were mixed in the beginning. The looks/style was appealing in its’ masculinity being defiant and street tough and the music was energetic and their “own thing”. White skins who collected records were supporting the Jamaican recording industry a lot. They should be thanked for making Bob Marley possible …

    I’ve read that mixed skinhead groups did some “Paki bashing” together ..l

    The reggae music wasn’t as appealing as Ska to the white skinheads, reggae “riddims” being slow, laid back and lazy. And while reggae had nationalist undertones it was Black nationalism … some original white skinheads kept on following and collecting Jamaican records but it must’ve been like a final insult when the washed up hippies found Bob Marley.

    Bob Marley’s father was an old British White colonial sexpat pedophile, If one exaggerates a little. According to a Marley biography I’ve read, he met racism in Jamaica when growing up because he wasn’t Black, so he had to overcompensate, learning to speak Patois and growing dreadlocks.

    I thought the Marley song “Exodus” was funny because “Exodus” was literally out off Africa and “back to OUR fathers’ land” couldn’t be literal …

    No. They had formed a union (Lithuanian-Polish Commonwealth) for a couple of centuries (16th-18th), de facto when their heads of state intermarried, and de jure with the Union of Lublin. Before that, Lithuania ruled much of what is now Ukraine and Belarus, with lands from the Baltic to the Black Sea, and after that, Russia ruled Lithuania for over a century, before the latter’s regaining of independence in 1918.

    Regardless, no Pole would have the last name of ZemeckiS.
    ZemeckI, possibly; ZemeckiS, no.

    Zemeckis grew up in the South Side of Chicago (a city with the largest population of Lithuanians outside of Lithuania). Lithuanian neighborhoods in Chicago got ethnically cleansed by diversity and displaced to the outlying burbs. I assume his was one of them, given the location. People of his age tend to remember that. Also, in the post-war Lithuanian immigrant community not voting Republican was considered almost treason.
    On a side note, his parents discouraged him from becoming a movie director because they thought it was impossible given his ethnicity (i.e., he was not Jewish). Acceptable career choices in his ethnic milieu were/are 1) engineer and 2) doctor. The arts were considered flaky, not a serious occupation.

    I’m a big Zemeckis fan. His batting average isn’t as high as that of his mentor Spielberg, but he’s done a bunch of movies that nobody saw coming.
