Jewish Community Center Bomb-Scare Caller Arrested... And Once Again, It's Not the Villain the Leftwing Media Was Looking For

He's actually an Israeli-American dual citizen.

This article at the Jerusalem Post begins by telling us "he is not in the IDF, not Ultra-orthodox" -- that is, he's not even the sort of hard-core right-wing Jew we would have hoped for as even a tenth-best possibility.

So he seems to be a left-wing Jew, and not a right-wing Jew-hater. Once again, then, most likely a Social Justice Warrior hoping to agitate for the "cause" through a hoaxed persecution.

Why are all of these left-wingers perpetrating hate hoaxes?

Could it be for two simple reasons?:

1, the media runs any claim that furthers their agenda uncritically, without the bother of fact-checking or even a little due-dilligence skepticism.

2, society has unduly valorized victimhood, making it very easy to become special through the very easy expedient of claiming someone said something mean to you. Not only does this encourage victimhood hoaxing -- people are economical and seek the shortest and easiest path to anything, including attention and social value -- but it discourages the older, much harder methods by which people claimed social value, namely, stupid things as Old As the Constitution like working hard, achieving things due to effort and risk, cultivating virtue instead of just advertising fake virtue on Twitter, etc.

Obviously the same media which relentlessly hyped this story as a sign of the rise of Trump's allegedly-legion Nazi admirers and which demanded repeatedly that he denounce what must surely be his own supporters' anti-semitic brutality will not bother reporting much on this nor giving it the "thinky" spin-off stories and analysis pieces that keep an event percolating in the national consequences.

We will have no think-pieces about whether society is breeding a Generation of Bois Who Cried Wolf by unduly promoting the culture of victimhood.

The story of the JCC bomb threats had Profound Political and Cultural Implication when it was assumed by the media to be the work of someone from the other party. Literally, from the Party of The Others, the Otherized, the Strangers, the Foreign Invaders.

Now that we find the caller was calling from inside the house of progressivism, there's simply no story here at all.

As is always the case: Any misbehavior by any conservative or Republican (or, lately, any man or any white person, period) is the fault of the entire group. Some people are to be condemned for sharing similar politics or DNA with their misbehaving cousins -- where the perpetrator (or suspected perp) is white, male, or Republican, the entire group shares a Blood-Borne Guilt for the individual's crime.

But of course the media is simultaneously very defensive about any notions that one illegal alien's brutal rape implicates any other illegal alien -- they're so firm on this point that they babble about it even when no one has even hinted about such a thing.

They're very big on saying "an attack by a Muslim does not implicate all Muslims."

Okay, fair enough. Let the proposition stand as uncontested.

But why doesn't the same reasoning then apply to all whites, all men, or all Republicans?

Why, when Dylan Roof goes off on an insane racist murder spree, am I demanded to examine my own alleged unconscious racism and white privilege?

Why does a white racist killer somehow create an obligation in me to examine how my own internalized "white supremacy" might be part and parcel of the attack, whereas the terrorism committed by a Islamist is definitely not cause for any self-reflection within the Muslim community about how their own hatreds and ideas of Islamic Supremacy might have something to do with the latest jihadi rampage?

Why the two standards, media?

And why are the standards becoming even more divergent -- why is it now considered journalistically unethical to even report that a jihadist attack was carried out by a jihadist, or that a rape by an illegal immigrant of a 14 year old girl even happened at all?

Fake News isn't just the made-up news CNN cranks out daily -- it's the real news it refuse to mention.

Below, a great graphic by @exjon /Jon Gabriel about the media's simple scheme for determining the proper Narrative for all stories involving violence.

The Kardashian Option is a big one -- right now all the media except Fox is playing the Kardashian Card rather than report the Culture of Rape that's actually going on in Maryland high schools, with official state blessing.
