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.
