NYC Council Member-Elect and DeBlasio Ally Blames ‘Knockout Game’ on Jewish Success

Posted by on Dec 06, 2013 at 10:13 am

Sure, this makes perfect sense. If you’re an unhinged Jew-hater, of course.

A newly elected member of the New York City Council has expressed a theory as to what the motive is behind the “knockout game” attacks in Crown Heights.

As 1010 WINS’ John Montone reported, Brooklyn Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo recently said on Facebook that she believes the attacks against Jews in that area are related to a fear of the growing Jewish population by some African-American residents.

In the letter Cumbo said that at a recent community meeting regarding the attacks she shared something she had come to understand while campaigning. “I shared that many African American/Caribbean residents expressed a genuine concern that as the Jewish community continues to grow, they would be pushed out by their Jewish landlords or by Jewish families looking to purchase homes,” Cumbo said.

“I relayed these sentiments at the forum not as an insult to the Jewish community, but rather to offer possible insight as to how young African American/Caribbean teens could conceivably commit a ‘hate crime’ against a community that they know very little about,” Cumbo continued in the letter.

Naturally some of her constituents agree with her. Bet her Jewish constituents would like their votes back.

Dark days are ahead in Brooklyn with lunatics like this in office.

    She actually used the phrase “Jewish landlords”? Really? Imagine substituting other groups for “Jewish”. How far do you think it’d fly then?

    Naturally, this also explains why there have been all of those other knock out incidents in St. Louis and Philadelphia. Once you let those Jews move in, there goes the neighborhood.

    Oh for heaven’s sake…

    When are we going to stop making excuses for minorities – particularly blacks?

    Hey, black community… if you haven’t noticed, you ARE ‘da man’ now and have been for 5 years. Taking responsibility for yourself is hard.

    Didja think having a black president would mean your life suddenly wound up on easy street? Didja think having white presidents put us on easy street? (Silly question, I know… ‘white privilege blah blah blah’)

    Silly lo-fo voters. Life is hard no matter who you are. In one way or another, NO ONE’s got it easy.

    It’s about damned time this country holds every able person accountable for their own damned life. It’s how we used to do things in this country AND THINGS GOT DONE.

    Then at some point we started bracing ‘the excuse’ and now look.

    So basically she’s saying

    Dere go de neighborhood.

    If that sounds racist to you, it’s because it is. But on her part, not mine.
