If the alleged vandal had volunteered for the Trump campaign, CNN would have blasted this out, 24/7, for the next month.
CNN failed to report key details on Saturday about the man who allegedly vandalized a New York City synagogue with anti-Semitic messages, leaving out his ties to Democratic leaders and his work on combating hate crimes.
“And a Brooklyn man has been arrested and charged with a hate crime for anti-Semitic messages found in a New York synagogue on Thursday,” CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield said. “James Polite is also charged with criminal mischief and making graffiti.”….
Whitfield failed to report that Polite was a Democratic activist, volunteered for former President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, and previously worked to combat hate crimes….
New York Democrats had a field day blaming President Trump for the “atmosphere” that encouraged a vile defacement of the Brooklyn synagogue – until the suspect caught on video surveillance cameras was apprehended and turned out to be one of their own….
Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller News Foundation has assembled the stunning evidence of a man who was almost literally a poster boy for New York Democratic politicians’ hubristic, self-righteous political correctness.
A year ago, The New York Times profiled Polite, noting that he was an LGBT foster youth who “could defy the statistics” after becoming the “adopted child of the Quinn administration,” as Christine Quinn, then the speaker of the New York city council, put it. “And it wasn’t just me. It was the entire City Council staff.”
The adoptive child of “the entire City Council Staff”! Wow, they really did a job mentoring him! Hey, take a bow, Dems! He’s yours.
The Times’ charity, “The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund, took over Mr. Polite’s case” as he aged out of the foster care system, and helped him attend Brandeis.
A university founded to provide opportunities for Jews kept out of the Ivy League by quotas. Brandeis has morphed into an ultra-leftist breeding ground for the likes of Polite.
“Mr. Polite hopes to graduate in May with degrees in African-American studies and political science, and took two classes over the summer to stay on pace,” the profile said. “In June, Children’s Aid used $856 from the Neediest Cases Fund for school supplies and fees not covered by his financial aid package.”
The Times profile also pictured Polite next to a smiling couple, Joshua Waletzky and Jenny Levison. They “wanted to foster an ‘L.G.B.T.Q. youth’ on the brink of aging out of the system,” the Times wrote. “Although Mr. Polite was not legally adopted — his relationship with his biological parents has improved in recent years — Ms. Levison called it a ‘moral adoption.’ He says he considers the couple his second set of parents.”….
