From the Jerusalem Post, more on the Cristal™nacht at the corner of Fairfax and Melrose:

Jewish business owners describe vandalism, looting of businesses in LA

These are the descriptions Jewish business owners cited when talking about how their stores were looted and ransacked, and synagogues were vandalized with graffiti.

By KELLY HARTOG JUNE 3, 2020

LOS ANGELES – Masks. Hoodies. Sledgehammers. Crowbars. Baseball bats.

These are the descriptions Jewish business owners cited when talking about how their stores were looted and ransacked, and synagogues were vandalized with graffiti after peaceful protests spiraled out of control in Los Angeles beginning on Friday night and continuing into the weekend. …

Many of the business owners whose stores were looted in the Beverly Hills, downtown Los Angeles and the heavily Orthodox Fairfax district, are observant Jews who had shut off all electronic devices and connection to the outside world on Thursday night in observance of both the two-day Shavuot holiday and Shabbat. Calls from alarm companies and multiple text messages and phone calls from non-observant friends, family and nearby store owners jolted them out of their safe bubble. …

The sentiments were echoed by other Jewish business owners. Avida Giloh, who owns Revere Jewels in Beverly Hills, had his second-floor business looted late Saturday night.

Originally from Ra’anana, Giloh came to the US 18 years ago. Outside video footage (the looters disabled his own video cameras) showed “13 guys coming into the building with masks and hoodies,” Giloh said. “They used a sledgehammer, broke the door of the main building and took our office apart.” He said they tried to move his safe but couldn’t.

Like Naim, Giloh said, “Nobody minds a peaceful protest. But this is far from that. It’s not even a protest. It’s a riot. I don’t think any of these protests are sanctioned or organized by any law enforcement.”

Both Aryeh Rosenfeld of Hancock Park and Na’ama Aviv of Pico-Robertson had their businesses looted in the Fairfax area. Rosenfeld owns The Hat Box and Family Fashion clothing stores and Aviv owns Mensch’s Bakery – neither of which trade in anything worth reselling.

After receiving a notification shortly after Shabbat, Rosenfeld raced to his store with some other men and discovered four men coming out of his store carrying his computer. “I chased [them] down and got them to drop the computer,” he said.

Rosenfeld described the scene late Saturday night with people driving down the Fairfax district streets screaming, “effing Jews,” at them. He said when they saw a police car, they waved it down, hoping they would arrest a looter they had pinned down, but the cop said, “We can’t do anything, we have officers who need assistance.”

Israeli-born philanthropist and activist Adam Milstein, who lives in Los Angeles, concurred. He said, “The Jewish community is in denial. The fact that synagogues got tagged and Jewish businesses were looted with [signs saying] ‘Free Palestine’ and ‘Kill the Jews,’ is not a coincidence. The rioters are antifa and Black Lives Matter and they are inherently antisemitic.”

Aviv of Mensch’s Bakery, whose register and iPads were stolen on Saturday night and whose windows were shattered, didn’t know who was responsible for the looting. She said, “I’m very supportive of the peaceful protests. I’m not supportive of the riots and the looting and I don’t think it’s a black and white thing anymore. It’s an all-race thing, and everyone’s mad at the world and wants to destroy it.”

For Jonathan Friedman, who owns Syd’s Pharmacy, also in the Fairfax area, he’s unclear if he was targeted because he is Jewish or if it’s because looters were after narcotics – all of which were taken from his store.
“It’s frustrating,” he added. “We had no part in this. They had no reason to involve us. I understand the [protesters’] cause. They’re actually right. Someone was murdered and they’re right, but I don’t see where myself and other businesses, that were suffering with corona, have the extra $3,000 to cover the deductible for their insurance, fit into this whole thing.”

  2. Coag says:

    The common excuse for the looters is “the merchandise can be replaced and the damage can be repaired, but George Floyd can never come back to life”: therefore loot all you want. The line of thought is widely accepted as legitimate by the appalling denizens of our idiocracy. Even the victims of the looting bow their heads meekly to accept these anti-rational rhetorical bludgeonings.

  3. These guys have a perfect right to be terrified. That only their stores were ransacked shows that they, as Jews, were specifically targeted. The USA is a very dangerous place for Jews and it’s only going to get worse, culminating, probably, in death camps. They should pack up and leave NOW, before the SHTF. Israel or Madagascar would make good, safe destinations. Better safe than sorry. Godspeed God’s chosen.

    It may seem that the people in the US are not unified and there’s strife throughout the country. But if Americans ever discovered the Trump administration was creating death camps for Jewish people, the populace would rise up and unite.

    Jewish people may not be the most numerous, or the richest or the most powerful. But they are a beloved fabric in the American tapestry. Black, white, Asian and Mexican will come together to protect them.

  7. Aviv – “I don’t think it’s a black and white thing anymore. It’s an all-race thing, and everyone’s mad at the world and wants to destroy it.”

    From what I observe, Aviv is on the money with this. A lot of Millennials don’t see a promising future out there for them, possibly with good reason. There just don’t seem to be that many visible opportunities out there, where a young “average (let alone somewhere South of that) Joe” of modest ambition, can ever picture himself in a solid, comfortable position. I hope this more just perception rather than reality; but it feels real enough that I’m uneasy about it.

    On an adjacent note, do you have to be 35 years old to run for VP? If not, I’d feel more at ease if original Joe Biden were to chose Candice Owen’s as his woman of color; and not just because I can read her name and then pronounce it correctly:

    From what I have read, Floyd made a sincere effort to turn his life around after his release from prison. I don't think it's right to portray him as a criminal.
    He also lost his job because of the coronavirus. Maybe if we had a more racist immigration policy, the virus would not have become such a big issue in America, which would have prevented the series of events that led to Floyd's death.

    No, as long as you are 35 by Inauguration Day. The VP has to meet the same qualifications as the President.

    Actually, you could "run" till you are blue in the face, but you won't get on many states' ballots. States are quite fussy about frivolous candidacies.

    In New York, a rare state which allows multiple parties to endorse the same ticket, the presidential candidate cannot combine his parties' votes if the VP slots differ. Same with the governor and lieutenant governor.

    The white rioters (aside from the organizers and some of the fat women) are NOT millennials. Millennials are 38-25 at this point. The rioters are Generation Z, raised by digital devices. Many of them have trouble socializing so the riots are great fun for them, a huge release of pent-up energy. They are more shaped by ghetto culture in style/interests than millennials. They are also interested in recording it for Tiktok. Millennials just virtue-signal on Facebook and Instagram.

    Duh territory.

    How can most young people see a promising future when their nation's "elite" is--gleefully--selling out the capital, the industry, the property, the capability that their ancestors accumulated with one hand while waving in foreigners to grab their job opportunities with the other.

    My kids are doing well and have promising futures, but they are way more talented than average and their futures are still considerably less promising than they should be, if nothing else simply in inheriting a nation that is less prosperous, peaceful and pleasant than it should be.

    I mean, if anything he's underselling it. Jews are not the just the major reason, but the only reason the black race in America has been elevated from second class citizens to a kind worshiped nobility. The problem for Jews is that they're currently stuck in temporal no man's land. It's too early to drop the "fellow white people" shtick just yet, so they're in the position of demonizing a group they have to keep pretending to be a part of for the time being.

    Of course, once whites are politically powerless the Jews will be able to use their control of the mass media and culture to lift the veil from history and reveal their own role as benefactors to POC. I have little doubt they will be successful in this. If they have been so effective in foisting an entirely fictional narrative on the population, imagine how much easier it will be for them to just show the truth for what it is. That must certainly be the plan, because I doubt they're going through all the trouble of demographic replacement just to end up as slaves along with the white goys.

    Btw, how is it that a dozen dogs—averaging 60 lbs w/ 50” reach— could be rounded up from various shelters and you could put these dogs up against a dozen of the meanest, toughest, prison-hardened dudes from the roughest part of Detroit and the dogs would take under a UFC round to finish off every one of them?

    I read on some silly blog about a hypothetical fight between a top UFC fighter vs. gorilla (TL;DR, the gorilla would annihilate him in seconds). Apparently a big disadvantage for the human being in a fight is that unlike other animals the human doesn’t enter the fight at 100% nothing held back.
    This is interesting. When animals decide to fight they go all in.

    More from the (((lying media))) to help fan the flame. They'd have you believe every black arrested is an upstanding citizen. Why was the police called in the first place? Because he committed yet another crime, then resisted arrest.

    In addition to Covid-19 positive, hypertension, heart disease, they also found fentanyl, meth and cannabis in his system. A complete medical examination by a team of examiners should be performed, including a specialist on Covid-19. His cause of death may well not be "homicide" as determined by that one examiner. Heart disease is the #1 deadliest comorbidity for Covid-19.

    Did he buy his fentanyl and his meth legally? By definition, consumers of illegal drugs ARE criminals. Floyd had just passed a counterfeit bill. Another crime. The reason he was portrayed as a criminal was because he WAS a criminal. Maybe his more recent offenses were not as serious as the armed robbery that sent him to prison but the idea that he had "turned his life around" is a joke. Every dead "aspiring rapper" and "jogger" was JUST about to turn his life around. Right on the the cusp. Sure. You are being fed crap by our Leftist media and you are credulously just licking it right up. Open your eyes.

    They were dealing drugs out of their car on the corner. Better than out of a house because they are mobile i.e. can relocate, and can flee in a hurry. Didn't you see the video of the packs of white powder he left on the sidewalk where they sat him before escorting him across the street to the police cruiser where he died? He had three cocaine priors on his rap sheet, one for intent to distribute, (four grams IIRC) two for simple possession (less than one gram).

    Turning his life around? What a joke. You're falling for black guy's shuck and jive which is the reason he's daid. It's a black thing to say "I can't breathe" when they're handcuffed, put in a cruiser, etc. That's why no one believed him. Black guy crying wolf once too often paid the price.

    Am I the only guy around who doesn't preface his remarks with the seemingly obligatory "While I condemn the brutal, horrific treatment this man suffered at the hands of the police...."

    Screw that noise. He brought this on himself. He was a dirtbag and I'm glad he's gone, by fair means or foul. And screw everyone who grovels and minces their words. You'll get just what you deserve with that attitude, i.e. a shiv in the back. Blacks aren't necessarily evil, but don't ever turn your back on them. Don't make the mistake of believing that a hopefully prophylactic submissive display will save your sorry ass when you find yourself surrounded by blacks on the street.

    I'm interested in Berenson's book about COVID-19, but I don't understand what appears to be the thesis of his Marijuana book.

    It was decades ago, but no one I knew who smoked weed regularly was violent. On the contrary, they tended to be rather passive and mellow. I've seen a lot of violence come from a bottle, but none from a joint.

    Marijuana was good for hedonistic pursuits like sex, music, food and film. I can't even imagine getting violent or aggressive on it.

    But that was all a long time ago, and I only partook on occasion. Maybe something has changed.

    Speaking from personal experience, whether you got looted or not, the riots marks that neighborhood. That means insurance companies will be closing out all those Jewish business owners policies, and the insurance company will either pull up stakes covering that area, or raise the premiums on the new policies significantly.

    All business owners in afflicted areas will be paying for that riot for many years to come.

    When my building was overrun with looting negroes during the Rodney King riots, my family members headed over there fully armed. When they arrived, there were at least 30 negroes in our building, attempting to set it on fire. A few gunshots were discharged into the air, along with some choice words, and all of them ran out the door, or dove out the broken windows. It was a sight to see. They hardly looked back as they sprinted down the street in every direction, and they didn’t come back. Negroes are frightened of gunfire like nothing else, I’ve noticed.

    Our insurance broker called up me the next day, and thanked us for saving our building. I said, “thanks, and you’re cancelling us, aren’t you…” He said, “sorry, but yes. We can’t cover your area anymore.” And that, as they say, was that. We reinsured with another company. Significantly higher premiums, for years.

    Farakahan and the Nation of Islam do not like Latinos and/or Hispanics. The New Black Panthers do not like Latinos and/or Hispanics. These groups are always in constant conflict. The friendly political relationship between La Raza and the radical Democrats doesn’t compensate for this massive divide amid Blacks and Latinos.

    The media, especially the political media, are never allowed to talk about the internal ideologies behind the two camps: Team Obama (BLM – Islam) and Team Clyburn (AME – Christian); but the issues are very real and keeping the coalition together is not easy. Seeing Al Sharpton (AME team) deliver his racial narrative to the Minneapolis funeral audience today is a reflection of how important and tenuous the dynamic really is.

    The BLM foot-soldiers do not like the lack of purity within the Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton messaging. Two-J’s and Sharptongue are both old-school AME members where religious worship kneels foremost in front of the altar of money.

    Those behind the BLM network are more ideological and they see the AME’s lust for money as a risk. It’s a weird interplay and ultimately that’s why the two factions keep splitting apart.

    Etc.

    Humans are weaker than all other similar sized mammals due to lower densities of muscle fibres.
    This was a side effect of developing larger, thinner skulls to hold a larger brain. The resulting structural weakening of the side of the skull which connects to the jawbone required weaker biting force to prevent bone fracturing. This was achieved by lowering muscle-fibre density.

    As a result, the best way to fight a gorilla is by inventing a gun and shooting him. If he gets within grappling range you are screwed.

    In addition to Covid-19 positive, hypertension, heart disease, they also found fentanyl, meth and cannabis in his system. A complete medical examination by a team of examiners should be performed, including a specialist on Covid-19. His cause of death may well not be “homicide” as determined by that one examiner.

    “They had no reason to involve us?”

    This strikes me as such very Jewish (or maybe Jewish and non-white) thing to say. He seems to be suggesting that there is some ethnic group that bears the blame – just not his ethnic group?

    Who the hell does this guy think did have a part in this, aside from the cops themselves? His statement seems to suggest that there’s some other ethnic group that does deserve to be targeted; that is repsonsible for the actions of a few rogue cops.

    The mayor, controller, and city attorney of Los Angeles are all Jewish. So are at least two of the fifteen city council members. If the rioters were upset over police brutality in Los Angeles then what better group to target, if any ethnic group deserves to be targeted, than the most powerful ethnic group in the city?

    Or how about the other groups that dominate the LA City Council: Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and gays? I’m sure he isn’t suggesting that the rioters target them?

    If the rioters should target based on political party then they should target the Left, since 100% of Los Angeles (and Minneapolis) city council seats are controlled by the Left. The mayor of Minneapolis is also Jewish.

    But somehow Jonathan Friedman leaves open the possibility that targeting some other ethnic group, like oh say WASPs, would be perfectly acceptable, despite the fact that WASPs have exactly zero seats on the city councils of either Los Angeles or Minneapolis.

The idea that there is any single, coherent "Jewish community" to speak-of is more figment than reality. Sure, many grandiose proclamations get issued in that very name. But the numerous and highly fractured subsets within the extremely broad category of those who identify as Jews cannot even agree on how to define one.

    Note that the articles specifies Orthodox Jews-- who are the most right-Wing, pro-law-and-order Jews; the least likely to support mass immigration, hostility toward whites, LGBTQ and other degeneracy and insanity, gun control, etc. Least likely to be Woke, etc.

The reason he was portrayed as a criminal was because he WAS a criminal.

    Speaking from personal experience, whether you got looted or not, the riots marks that neighborhood. That means insurance companies will be closing out all those Jewish business owners policies, and the insurance company will either pull up stakes covering that area, or raise the premiums on the new policies significantly.

    All business owners in afflicted areas will be paying for that riot for many years to come.

    When my building was overrun with looting negroes during the Rodney King riots, my family members headed over there fully armed. When they arrived, there were at least 30 negroes in our building, attempting to set it on fire. A few gunshots were discharged into the air, along with some choice words, and all of them ran out the door, or dove out the broken windows. It was a sight to see. They hardly looked back as they sprinted down the street in every direction, and they didn’t come back. Negroes are frightened of gunfire like nothing else, I’ve noticed.

    Our insurance broker called up me the next day, and thanked us for saving our building. I said, "thanks, and you’re cancelling us, aren’t you..." He said, "sorry, but yes. We can’t cover your area anymore." And that, as they say, was that. We reinsured with another company. Significantly higher premiums, for years.

    And without the (misguided) but peaceful protests for cover the Antifa couldn't operate and the looters couldn't loot.

    I mean, if anything he’s underselling it. Jews are not the just the major reason, but the only reason the black race in America has been elevated from second class citizens to a kind worshiped nobility. The problem for Jews is that they’re currently stuck in temporal no man’s land. It’s too early to drop the “fellow white people” shtick just yet, so they’re in the position of demonizing a group they have to keep pretending to be a part of for the time being.

    Of course, once whites are politically powerless the Jews will be able to use their control of the mass media and culture to lift the veil from history and reveal their own role as benefactors to POC. I have little doubt they will be successful in this. If they have been so effective in foisting an entirely fictional narrative on the population, imagine how much easier it will be for them to just show the truth for what it is. That must certainly be the plan, because I doubt they’re going through all the trouble of demographic replacement just to end up as slaves along with the white goys.

    I feel sorry for the dogs. They didn’t ask to be a part of this.
     
    It beats sniffing out IEDs in war zones.

    Btw, how is it that a dozen dogs—averaging 60 lbs w/ 50” reach— could be rounded up from various shelters and you could put these dogs up against a dozen of the meanest, toughest, prison-hardened dudes from the roughest part of Detroit and the dogs would take under a UFC round to finish off every one of them?

    I read on some silly blog about a hypothetical fight between a top UFC fighter vs. gorilla (TL;DR, the gorilla would annihilate him in seconds). Apparently a big disadvantage for the human being in a fight is that unlike other animals the human doesn’t enter the fight at 100% nothing held back.

    Humans are weaker than all other similar sized mammals due to lower densities of muscle fibres.
    This was a side effect of developing larger, thinner skulls to hold a larger brain. The resulting structural weakening of the side of the skull which connects to the jawbone required weaker biting force to prevent bone fracturing. This was achieved by lowering muscle-fibre density.

    As a result, the best way to fight a gorilla is by inventing a gun and shooting him. If he gets within grappling range you are screwed.

    Its been pointed out to you before - Anonymouse, he whose favorite verb is "hate" - but there is a whole range of emotions that fall short of "hate". Mild disapproval is not "hate". Amusement at some Jewish merchant's utter lack of self awareness is not "hate".

    People who insist on using the term "hate" in reference to people that simply notice unpleasant aspects of another group's behavior are themselves quite hateful. The purpose of using "hate" is to categorize whoever it is you're complaining about as irrational, beneath contempt, and whose views can be safely disregarded. "Hate" is just another tool in the leftist toolbox.

    The Jewish tendency to label everything and everyone they don't like as "hateful" is exceedingly assholish behavior. Knock it off. Shame on you. Your persistent use of "hate" is a gross case of projection.

    I don’t quite agree. I’ve always said, show me a habitual pot smoker, and I’ll show you someone with anxiety management issues at best, anger management issues at worst. Potheads smoke pot to be socially functional. Pot is what keeps the angery ones out of prison. Until it doesn’t. It keeps the anxious ones from killing themselves. Until it doesn’t. Pot is a game of slow diminishing returns. Especially the intense stuff available today. I can’t believe it doesn’t eventually cause brain damage.

    I think it might depend a lot on the kinds of people who are using it. I know for a fact this is true for alcohol.

    Your crutch idea has a lot of validity. Any addiction can become that, and people do become addicted, at least in the soft sense, to things like this.

    The real question is who had violent tendencies before they used a substance, be it alcohol or marijuana. From personal, family experience growing up I can say with confidence that it is the personal traits of the individuals that matter -- far more than whatever molecules they are ingesting.

    Mark my words on this: I am 100% certain, and I hold those people personally responsible, no matter who they are or what substances they were using.

    Where's the hate? All I'm doing is lifting text from articles published by Jewish intelligentsia, articles which warn of rising anti-Semitism, of growing number of incidents of so-called hate crimes such as swastikas sprayed on Synagogues, of increasing numbers of verbal "hate speech" hurled at Orthodox Jews as they walk down the street. All of these and more, we're told by the JDL, ADL New York Times, Israeli newspapers and dozens more, are evidence not only that it can happen here but that it is happening! Right now!

    Americans are Fascists, make no mistake about it! Trump is Hitler! Putin is Stalin. Their alliance is today's Molotov/Ribbentrop Pact. Here we go again!!!

    So, taking seriously my obligation to be my brother's keeper, I advise him to flee while he can. Flee, just as the Jewish intelligentsia and wealthy, upper-class left Germany when Hitler was elected, leaving behind those Jews so unfortunate as to not have the funds to depart. Let the devil take the hindmost! Get out while you can. And if, those you leave behind are later rounded up and sent to work camps, you can ultimately use that against all Americans as proof of their corrupt nature--maybe even, turn it into Weregelt! Money, the Long Green, moral blackmail. Now we're talking!

    You don't like what I say, want to censor me because I accurately mirror Jew's own speech. Or were those articles that spoke of the incipient rise of Nazism not to be taken seriously? Were they mere hyperbole? Well then, no harm done. If you guys didn't mean it, then I can't be faulted for ridiculing something which wasn't real to begin with, can I?

He had three cocaine priors on his rap sheet, one for intent to distribute, (four grams IIRC) two for simple possession (less than one gram).

    Turning his life around? What a joke. You’re falling for black guy’s shuck and jive which is the reason he’s daid. It’s a black thing to say “I can’t breathe” when they’re handcuffed, put in a cruiser, etc. That’s why no one believed him. Black guy crying wolf once too often paid the price.

    Am I the only guy around who doesn’t preface his remarks with the seemingly obligatory “While I condemn the brutal, horrific treatment this man suffered at the hands of the police….”

    Screw that noise. He brought this on himself. He was a dirtbag and I’m glad he’s gone, by fair means or foul. And screw everyone who grovels and minces their words. You’ll get just what you deserve with that attitude, i.e. a shiv in the back. Blacks aren’t necessarily evil, but don’t ever turn your back on them.

    Basically, being "antiracist" means giving up what you and your society deserve based on talent and work in order to produce equality of outcome (so-called "equity") for the entitled, stupid, and lazy. It's a demand for gibs via pathological altruism- which is now becoming pathological coercion. It's the Bolsheviks coming to the Kulaks to take their cow.

    Its been pointed out to you before – Anonymouse, he whose favorite verb is “hate” – but there is a whole range of emotions that fall short of “hate”. Mild disapproval is not “hate”. Amusement at some Jewish merchant’s utter lack of self awareness is not “hate”.

    People who insist on using the term “hate” in reference to people that simply notice unpleasant aspects of another group’s behavior are themselves quite hateful. The purpose of using “hate” is to categorize whoever it is you’re complaining about as irrational, beneath contempt, and whose views can be safely disregarded. “Hate” is just another tool in the leftist toolbox.

    The Jewish tendency to label everything and everyone they don’t like as “hateful” is exceedingly assholish behavior. Knock it off. Shame on you. Your persistent use of “hate” is a gross case of projection.

    In the past, rioters had jobs to back to. With the pandemic, so many people have suddenly lost their livelihoods that huge numbers of rioters have no reason to stop rioting, unless the government provides a strong show of force that “dominates the streets”. You have to wonder where this is all leading.

    Some of the rioters, but the majority of the straight protesters definitely.

    And without the (misguided) but peaceful protests for cover the Antifa couldn’t operate and the looters couldn’t loot.

    Heck half the things that were looted (at least in California) were done during business hours when they’d normally be open if it wasn’t for Lockdown and protests.

    As his web-log has gotten more popular (look back to the iSteve archives at the # comments/post), the number of trashy and hateful comments has also grown. Perhaps disproportionately.

    That is, the number of comments that he passes through moderation.

    There is no easy solution -- there aren't clear dividers between worthy and unworthy, however defined.

    For perspective, here is a (long) SlateStarCodex post on a similar problem, and its unhappy resolution.

    Replies: @ThreeCranes

    Where’s the hate? All I’m doing is lifting text from articles published by Jewish intelligentsia, articles which warn of rising anti-Semitism, of growing number of incidents of so-called hate crimes such as swastikas sprayed on Synagogues, of increasing numbers of verbal “hate speech” hurled at Orthodox Jews as they walk down the street. All of these and more, we’re told by the JDL, ADL New York Times, Israeli newspapers and dozens more, are evidence not only that it can happen here but that it is happening! Right now!

    Americans are Fascists, make no mistake about it! Trump is Hitler! Putin is Stalin. Their alliance is today’s Molotov/Ribbentrop Pact. Here we go again!!!

    So, taking seriously my obligation to be my brother’s keeper, I advise him to flee while he can. Flee, just as the Jewish intelligentsia and wealthy, upper-class left Germany when Hitler was elected, leaving behind those Jews so unfortunate as to not have the funds to depart. Let the devil take the hindmost! Get out while you can. And if, those you leave behind are later rounded up and sent to work camps, you can ultimately use that against all Americans as proof of their corrupt nature–maybe even, turn it into Weregelt! Money, the Long Green, moral blackmail. Now we’re talking!

    You don’t like what I say, want to censor me because I accurately mirror Jew’s own speech. Or were those articles that spoke of the incipient rise of Nazism not to be taken seriously? Were they mere hyperbole? Well then, no harm done. If you guys didn’t mean it, then I can’t be faulted for ridiculing something which wasn’t real to begin with, can I? I mean, something times zero is zero, right?

    But if that were so, then why would you call for censoring me?

    It was decades ago, but no one I knew who smoked weed regularly was violent. On the contrary, they tended to be rather passive and mellow. I’ve seen a lot of violence come from a bottle, but none from a joint.
     
    I don’t quite agree. I’ve always said, show me a habitual pot smoker, and I’ll show you someone with anxiety management issues at best, anger management issues at worst. Potheads smoke pot to be socially functional. Pot is what keeps the angery ones out of prison. Until it doesn’t. It keeps the anxious ones from killing themselves. Until it doesn’t. Pot is a game of slow diminishing returns. Especially the intense stuff available today. I can’t believe it doesn’t eventually cause brain damage.
    People generally don’t keep smoking pot just for the hell of it. It's a crutch.

    Replies: @Buzz Mohawk

    I think it might depend a lot on the kinds of people who are using it. I know for a fact this is true for alcohol.

    Your crutch idea has a lot of validity. Any addiction can become that, and people do become addicted, at least in the soft sense, to things like this.

    The real question is who had violent tendencies before they used a substance, be it alcohol or marijuana. From personal, family experience growing up I can say with confidence that it is the personal traits of the individuals that matter — far more than whatever molecules they are ingesting.

    Mark my words on this: I am 100% certain, and I hold those people personally responsible, no matter who they are or what substances they were using.

If you don't want an expulsion to happen here, you need to confront the bad actors in your own group. I can assure you that most Americans under 40 who pay any attention to politics are "anti-semitic" in the sense that they know jews control America and that they use that power to enrich themselves at others' expense.

    “It’s frustrating,” [Jonathan Friedman]. “We had no part in this. They had no reason to involve us. I understand the [protesters’] cause. They’re actually right. Someone was murdered and they’re right, but I don’t see where myself and other businesses, that were suffering with corona, have the extra $3,000 to cover the deductible for their insurance, fit into this whole thing.”
     
    "They had no reason to involve us?"

    This strikes me as such very Jewish (or maybe Jewish and non-white) thing to say. He seems to be suggesting that there is some ethnic group that bears the blame - just not his ethnic group?

    Who the hell does this guy think did have a part in this, aside from the cops themselves? His statement seems to suggest that there's some other ethnic group that does deserve to be targeted; that is repsonsible for the actions of a few rogue cops.

    The mayor, controller, and city attorney of Los Angeles are all Jewish. So are at least two of the fifteen city council members. If the rioters were upset over police brutality in Los Angeles then what better group to target, if any ethnic group deserves to be targeted, than the most powerful ethnic group in the city?

    Or how about the other groups that dominate the LA City Council: Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and gays? I'm sure he isn't suggesting that the rioters target them?

    If the rioters should target based on political party then they should target the Left, since 100% of Los Angeles (and Minneapolis) city council seats are controlled by the Left. The mayor of Minneapolis is also Jewish.

    But somehow Jonathan Friedman leaves open the possibility that targeting some other ethnic group, like oh say WASPs, would be perfectly acceptable, despite the fact that WASPs have exactly zero seats on the city councils of either Los Angeles or Minneapolis.

    Thanks for the support, pal.

    Replies: @Dissident

    You have read an awful lot into the very brief quoted statement you cited. You and several other commenters in this thread have made all kind of presumptions; portrayed all Jews as a monolith. The idea that there is any single, coherent “Jewish community” to speak-of is more figment than reality. Sure, many grandiose proclamations get issued in that very name. But the numerous and highly fractured subsets within the extremely broad category of those who identify as Jews cannot even agree on how to define one.

    Note that the articles specifies Orthodox Jews— who are the most right-Wing, pro-law-and-order Jews; the least likely to support mass immigration, hostility toward whites, LGBTQ and other degeneracy and insanity, gun control, etc. Least likely to be Woke, etc.

    Aviv - "I don’t think it’s a black and white thing anymore. It’s an all-race thing, and everyone’s mad at the world and wants to destroy it.”
     
    From what I observe, Aviv is on the money with this. A lot of Millennials don't see a promising future out there for them, possibly with good reason. There just don't seem to be that many visible opportunities out there, where a young "average (let alone somewhere South of that) Joe" of modest ambition, can ever picture himself in a solid, comfortable position. I hope this more just perception rather than reality; but it feels real enough that I'm uneasy about it.

    On an adjacent note, do you have to be 35 years old to run for VP? If not, I'd feel more at ease if original Joe Biden were to chose Candice Owen's as his woman of color; and not just because I can read her name and then pronounce it correctly:
