With Muslim Democrat Constituents Hunting and Beating Jews in the Streets, Democrats Are Suddenly Denying the Connection Between a "Climate of Hate" of Superheated Rhetoric and Attacks on Citizens

Fredo Cuomo is fresh off his Non-Suspension for holding strategy sessions about how best to smear his brother's accusers to now claim the spate of antisemitic attacks are not coming from the Democrat Party.

Cuomo said that McCarthy is still ending up in the same place as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), "which is, you use any ugly tactic you can to blame something bad on Democrats. 'At a time when the Jewish people face increased violence and threats,' true, 'antisemitism is on the rise[,]’ true. But where does he say it’s on the rise? '[I]n the Democrat Party and is completely ignored by Speaker Nancy Pelosi.' ... This is not about Pelosi and the Democrats. That's not where the antisemitism is coming from. But that’s what he says."

I'm not a big believer in the "Climate of Hate" claim that by offering political criticism of a foreign entity -- such as Israel, political Islam, or China -- you are responsible for any attacks that angry young men might make on American citizens who are Jewish, Muslim, or Chinese.

Or white, for that matter.

But the left is a great fan of this claim, and use with vehemence to attack their enemies.

Except now, of course. As John Sexton writes at Hot Air, the Democrats are suddenly very reluctant to make the connection between heated political rhetoric and attacks on American citizens.

As recently as a few months ago it was common to see opinion pieces blaming the rash of hate crimes against Asian Americans on President Trump and rhetoric about the "Chinese virus." Now, just a few months later, we have a spike in anti-Semitic attacks and the left is suddenly struggling to make the same kind of generalizations about who is responsible. The climate of hate argument only seems to operate in one direction.

Gee, I wonder what can account for this sudden shift in position.

A Brooklyn man accused of beating a Jewish man during an attack in Midtown reportedly said from his jail cell he would "do it again," prosecutors claimed Saturday.

Twenty-three-year-old Waseem Awawdeh was held on a $10,000 bail following the Thursday incident in which he allegedly beat 29-year-old Joseph Borgen with crutches while also punching, kicking, and pepper-spraying the victim, according to the New York Post.

"If I could do it again, I would do it again," he reportedly told a jailer, according to a prosecutor present at Awawdeh's arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court, adding, "I have no problem doing it again."

After he was taken into custody in Midtown Manhattan, Awawdeh was charged with assault as a hate crime, gang assault, menacing, aggravated harassment as a hate crime, and criminal possession of a weapon, according to ABC 7.

The report continued:

The incident occurred amid dueling demonstrations over the deadly conflict between Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian militant group ruling the Gaza Strip. Pro-Israel and pro-Palestine protesters both took to the streets of Midtown Manhattan on Thursday evening, as a mutual cease-fire went into effect. At times, the two groups collided and fights broke out.

The initial attack was unprovoked, according to prosecutors who explained to Judge Kathryn Paek that Borgen was walking near Broadway and West 49th Street when the suspect "jumped him and attacked him."

The Manhattan assistant district attorney alleged Awawdeh called Borgen a "dirty Jew" and also stated, "F**k Israel, Hamas is going to kill all of you."

Click on the link and you'll see that Waseem has "that MAGA look."

The Squad routinely characterizes Israeli's bombing of Hamas terrorists -- in retaliation for Hamas' shooting of missiles into Israeli civilian areas -- as "genocide" and "terrorism."

But while Trump calling the Wuhan virus the Wuhan virus apparently was strong enough medicine to make black urban Democrats attack Asians -- urban blacks being notoriously MAGA-loving Trump zealots -- claiming Jews are on a genocidal rampage against Arabs is not heated enough rhetoric to cause any Arabs to get the idea that "Hey, maybe I should attack these 'colonizers' conducting genocide against my family."

By the way, I held this back from the previous post about CNN's cratering ratings.

From that Fox News article:

The troubled "Cuomo Prime Time" had its worst week across the board as namesake host Chris Cuomo has been engulfed in a series of embarrassing scandals that forced even liberal observers to bash the lack of journalistic ethics at the network. Cuomo, the little brother of embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D., was forced to address a stunning report from the Washington Post revealing he participated in strategy sessions earlier this year to address sexual harassment allegations against the governor.

Time for Andrew Cuomo to join some strategy sessions to save this roided-up illiterate's ass.
