Re: “JCC’S, cemeteries, and a president’s angry rants

M.A.T. - Thanks for the update, but another thing for you to consider:

"That doesn't account for the damage to Jewish cemeteries in Rochester and other locations, which the Israeli man could not have carried out."

Two things:

Obviously the Israeli Jew that was arrested in Israel didn't knock those over, but who's to say another Jewish person didn't?

and more importantly:

Wind/time damage. Yes, it's a thing. Many years back I did, uh, "free labor" for several weekends with the MCSD. Most of those days were spent at Mt Hope cemetery. During my time mowing and raking, I came across several downed headstones (which I uprighted as best I could). As much as our political stance makes us want things to be true, that's not often the case. That's why I say use the logic and reasoning portion of your brain (it's there for a reason) instead of just spouting off political talking points. Trust me, I'm Green, but you probably wouldn't pick that up from any of my posts.

I could probably go to Mt Hope now and find 50 headstones knocked over. Does that mean vandals did it?

TW, and City staff - 0 for 2 so far on arrests related to threats against the Jewish community. Let us know when a "white supremacist/Christian terrorist" is finally arrested.

Oh TW - Nice irony btw, referring to people as trolls, while hiding on an anonymous troll account....

Sure is, but I don't know why people are quick to jump on the "white supremacist" bandwagon. Let's not forget, there's a pretty large black nationalist group out there that's fervently anti-Semitic. How does the saying go, don't count your chickens before they've hatched?

Apparently getting dumped by your Jewish girlfriend is enough to set off a rash of mass murder threats. You guys already knew about this arrest though, but didn't conveniently fit in with that "white supremacist" stereotype....

Re: “Forum Wednesday on housing discrimination in the city

"The discrimination locks people into poor neighborhoods,"

If you're poor, you live in a poor neighborhood. That's life... We'd all love a 300k home in the burbs, but that's not reality.

Re: “Feedback 2/8

" but attempt to argue away the fact that Timothy McVeigh was deeply influenced by the Christian Identity movement prior to his bombing the Murrah Federal Office Building in 1995, killing 168."

A guy that bombed a federal building did so because of Christianity and not because he was fervently anti-government, fueled by government actions at Ruby Ridge and Waco? Interesting. Tell me more....

This totally sounds like something a religious nut-job would say:

"In McVeigh's biography American Terrorist, released in 2002, he stated that he did not believe in a hell and that science is his religion"

/sarcasm
