Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 03, 2018

A political event with two Democratic candidates at the Union Temple of Brooklyn was canceled Friday after attendees found graffiti saying "Die Jew Rats" and "Hitler," which one of the candidates said highlighted the need to vote out "hate." Police arrested 26-year old James Polite later that night based on surveillance footage. Polite was a Democratic activist and former City Hall intern who worked on anti-hate crime issues. He is a queer black man informally adopted by a Jewish couple, and The New York Times' charity, the Neediest Cases, helped pay for him to go to college where his focus was African American studies, according to a 2017 New York Times profile.

#3, FWIW I would have chosen any one of those links over the dailycaller blog, which has a spotty record. Not to mention Tucker Carlson is a ----.

It's very disappointing, but completely unsurprising, to see the continued actions of Democrats to burn places of worship and engage in hate crimes.

What are you rambling about?

1st, citation necessary for your claim, "to see the continued actions of Democrats to burn places of worship"

2nd, citation necessary for your claim, "to see the continued actions of Democrats to ... engage in hate crimes"

3rd, citation necessary that this particular individual is a democrat. As it could be Boaz.

You've got nothing but straw.

If it weren't for knee jerking, Republicans wouldn't be so angry all the time.

From MustyDepends article:

He resented New York liberals as patronizing, and railed against Israel and cultural appropriation, according to his Facebook profile.

This guy may have been a democrat in the past.

But so was Nulli.

And here we are today.

"He resented New York liberals as patronizing"

New York, you say.
Are you sure it's not Coral Gables, or possibly Fort Lauderdale?

#6 To your third citation request, the blurb from the article Mustang posted above says the guy was a Democratic activist and city hall intern.

Yes but, as I pointed out in #8:

"He resented New York liberals as patronizing, and railed against Israel and cultural appropriation, according to his Facebook profile."

This guy may have been a democrat at some point in his life.

But apparently New York liberals patronized him. And then he lost his mind.

You can be a conservative Democrat. BruceBanner is one.

Perhaps this guy was as well.

Which should be a caution to Bruce. Don't go losing your mind.

#13 You can also be an anti-Semitic racist POS Democrat. You're trying REALLY hard to distance this guy from the Democratic Party.

His own words do the distancing. I'm just pointing them out.

Besides. Why would a democrat do something to cancel a political event for democrats?

Seems, counterproductive.

Probably the same kind of reason that someone set fire to their own African-American church and spray painted 'Vote Trump' on it.

Who knows what his agenda was, he also suspected of having vandalized other synagogues in the tri-state area...that doesn't mean that he wasn't a Democratic activist and Obama volunteer, no matter how hard you try to avoid it:

James Polite spent much of his childhood in foster care.

In high school alone, Mr. Polite estimates, he was placed in 10 different homes. And he received little encouragement from social workers to go to college.

But Mr. Polite, now 25, still believed that college was the best next step. He found encouragement as a volunteer in his teens, registering voters and canvassing neighborhoods in New York City during Barack Obama's first presidential bid. Mentors on the campaign trail urged him to pursue higher education.

He interned with Christine Quinn, a Manhattan Democrat, for several years, working on initiatives to combat hate crime, sexual assault and domestic violence. He also took part in her re-election campaign in 2009 and returned to help with her unsuccessful bid for mayor in 2013.

Avi.

All you got are lies and half truths.

Here. From your own link:


"The fire was set a week before Election Day, but a state official said the authorities did not believe it was motivated by politics.

"There may have been some efforts to make it appear politically motivated," Mike Chaney, who is the Mississippi insurance commissioner and the state fire marshal, told The Associated Press.


Good job on trying to make it politically motivated, Avi.

Too bad you're so stupid.

"canvassing neighborhoods in New York City during Barack Obama's first presidential bid."

That was back in 2008.

Sounds like ten years ago he bought into "Hope and Change," just like Nullifidian and SheepleSchism.

Then over the next ten years became disillusioned and bitter, just like Nullifidian and SheepleSchism.

He also has a history of mental illness (from the NYT's article):

Despite the assistance, Mr. Polite struggled at Brandeis. Smoking marijuana, he said, became a coping mechanism to manage his stress. He had first tried the drug at a foster home in his early teens, but in college his habit grew to three times a day. He was placed on a health leave of absence in late 2015 and required to enter a rehabilitation program. During treatment, he learned he had bipolar disorder, for which he is now medicated.

Based on your post/article it seems like he was a lost kid looking for a family. He found some acceptance with the democrats. But not what he was looking for. So he lashed out.

He's not the democrat you want him to be.

He's just a dumb kid.

As for the othe synagogues. Proof is better than hearsay.

The article was from 2017. Maybe he went off his meds. Who knows at this point.

That was pretty much my point when I said "Who knows what his agenda was", but for Clowny to try to somehow cast a minority LGBTQ Obama volunteer as a conservative reeks of #Team desperation.
