Our “Mayor” Bill de Blasio says its not terrorism.
Mayor De Blasio did an excellent job in response to the recent bombings.. doing exactly what he SHOULD HAVE and IS SUPPOSED to do: informing while keeping people calm.
Do the haters always have to bring their hate in to the comments? Always?
Please control yourselves.
“Do the haters always have to bring their hate in to the comments?” YES
Always? – even on International Day of Peace
Your placing of the word ‘mayor’ in quotation marks reminds me of how the late radio artist Bob Grant used to refer-to David Dinkins as “the gentleman in lieu of a mayor”.
“the late radio artist Bob Grant” – independent
From his NYT obit:
“his arch disdain for liberals, prominent black people, welfare recipients, feminists, gay people and anyone who disagreed with him was familiar to his listeners. The white supremacist David Duke had been a frequent guest on his show in the 1970s.”
[turnabout is fair play; context is everything]
1.) Funny, when it comes to expressing such purported moral indignation, you seem rather selective. I’ve never seen you, for example, express any such objections when individuals such as Barack Obama, Bill deBlasio or Eric Schneiderman have been mentioned– each of whom have shown only respect and honor to an individual whose rich and venerable history includes inciting pogroms, riots and murderous arson; tortious libel; and brazen tax evasion. In fact, you are clearly a proud and active member of the same party to which all of the aforementioned individuals belong– the one at whose 2004 National Convention, the afore-cited Al Sharpton spoke to a standing ovation.
2.) Bob Grant was a complex man with many aspects to his personality, his persona, his character, his very being. The description you quote does not do him justice. It is selective and tendentious and even outrightly misleading.
(One particularly glaring example: As written, the piece implies that Grant held “prominent black people” in disdain simply because they were black (or black and prominent). This is preposterous; anyone sufficiently familiar with Grant would know that there were any number of “prominent blacks” that he spoke highly of (including, for a certain period, Nelson Mandela) and that whites probably made-up the overwhelming majority of the countless number of individuals with whom he had blessed with his vitriol and vituperation.)
3.) You’ve already, more-than-amply, proven your Goodwhite credentials and your vast moral superiority over such “irredeemable” “deplorables” as me. This continued virtue-signaling of yours with posts like this is transparently reflexive and utterly trite and predictable.

“ANTI-SEMITISM IN THE UNITED STATES
Ron Unz: Controversial Writer and Funder of Anti-Israel Activists
January 20, 2014
Conservative businessman Ron Unz has stirred controversy over the last year by publicizing ideas that appeal to anti-Semites; offering a forum for writers who demonize Israel and funding several anti-Israel activists, some of whom promote anti-Semitic canards. Though Unz does not appear to be an anti-Semite, he provides support to extreme anti-Israel ideologues and his writings resonate with and are regularly cited by anti-Semites.”

1.) You have not addressed a single point of substance in the comments about terrorism that I quoted. Instead, you yet again attempt to discredit ideas and arguments merely because of where they appear or who authored them. The writing that you quoted has no relevance to that which I had quoted in my comment.
Valid ideas and arguments sometimes come from highly flawed or even reprehensible sources and vice-versa.
2.) I myself am a Jew– one who originally shared the basic view of the ADL that you quoted. Only after years of much thought and consideration did I gradually arrive at my present dissident perspective. I now consider the perspective and approach that the ADL represents to be counterproductive, often dangerous and, in at least many cases and respects, actually contrary to traditional Judaic teachings.
3.) “anti-Israel” =/= “anti-Semitic”.
Zionism and the Zionist State of Israel =/= Judaism or the Jewish People.
(Obviously, anti-Zionism and opposition to the State of Israel will often overlap with anti-Semitism but there is no inherent connection.)
It is entirely possible to criticize, oppose and even condemn both the State of Israel as well as Zionism without doing the same to Jews, per se— whether individually or collectively.
4.) Not all criticism of Jews amounts-to anti-Semitism. It is possible to be critical of Jews— whether on an individual or a collective level– without harboring animosity or harmful wishes toward them qua Jews.
5.) At least some (not all but some) of what the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) would deem “anti-Semitic canards”, I would consider legitimate criticism or observation, worthy of consideration and, sometimes even, introspection.
6.) The Unz Review bills itself as “A Collection of Interesting, Important, and Controversial Perspectives Largely Excluded from the American Mainstream Media” and features writers that span a broad ideological spectrum and diversity of thought. This even includes some who are pro-Israel and at least several who make even me cringe.
“You have not addressed a single point of substance in the comments about terrorism that I quoted.”
Because the “substance in the comments about terriorism that [you] quoted” is from a “a forum for writers who demonize Israel and funding several anti-Israel activists, some of whom promote anti-Semitic canards.” (ADL)
