New York City responded with outrage when someone vandalized a synagogue with hatful, anti-Semitic messages. The disgusting act occurred just days after 11 Jewish congregants were massacred at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
The messages allegedly included “die Jew rats we're here,” “Jews better be ready,” and “Hitler.”
Days after the vandalism, police arrested 26-year-old James Polite.
It didn’t take long for Polite’s political ties to emerge — and it clearly wasn’t what the left was expecting.
Polite was a volunteer on former President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. He was also once profiled by the New York Times, according to the DCNF.
“His Facebook profile, reviewed by TheDCNF, shows that on Nov. 1, a day before the synagogue vandalism, he posted ‘A dream with eyes wide open. civil war is here. Nobody gotta die. Mexico, latin America, carribean vs. Jew nigger pigs. One person touch me this whole shit a smoking,’” the DCNF reported.
The report added, “At 3:46 a.m. on Nov. 1, Polite posted a cell-phone picture of a burning American flag, with the caption ‘Sometimes things take a lil heat to grow.’ Police suspect him of setting fires at "seven shuls and yeshivas in Williamsburg" that same night, before the temple vandalism. Security footage captured that, too.
In its 2017 profile of Polite, described as an LGBT foster youth, the New York Times reported the hate crime suspect once “interned with Ms. Quinn, a Manhattan Democrat, for several years, working on initiatives to combat hate crime, sexual assault and domestic violence.”
If you haven't heard about this story much on the news, don't feel bad. The media were seemingly no longer interested in the story after the suspect was revealed to be a liberal activist.
