Irish PM Who Said Government Is 'Too White' Slammed for Insulting Response to Hamas Hostage Release



It hasn't been a good week for Irish PM Leo Varadkar. As RedState reported, he stoked controversy recently by declaring that his nation's government was "too white." That left people scratching their heads given Ireland is 93 percent white. A country's government reflecting its demographics is not exactly unusual. Besides, it's objectively racist to say something is "too" any race.

That silly statement represents a pattern for Varadkar, though. Following a deadly stabbing attack on Thursday in which an Algerian immigrant stabbed three children and others, the prime minister made a statement claiming that it was actually the "far-right" and its "hate" the Irish residents fear. In the face of children being stabbed, Varadkar was focused on lazy, stereotypical potshots against his political enemies.

Now, his response to Hamas' recent release of some of the hostages taken on October 7th has people talking, and not in a good way. While speaking of Emily Hand, an Irish-Israeli who was released by the terrorist government of Gaza on Saturday, Varadkar described her as being "lost" with no mention of her plight.

NYC Jewish Teacher Forced Into Hiding At School After Being Swarmed By Hundreds Of ‘Radicalized’ Students: Report





“The teacher was seen holding a sign of Israel, like supporting it,” a senior at the school told the Post. “A bunch of kids decided to make a group chat, expose her, talk about it, and then talk about starting a riot.”

The Post reported that hundreds of students stormed into hallways and “ran amok, chanting, jumping, shouting, and waving Palestinian flags or banners,” adding that “many tried to barge into the teacher’s classroom despite school staffers blocking their entry.”


Writer Steve McGuire posted the video on X, writing: “The scene at Hillcrest High School in Queens as a Jewish teacher hid in her locked office for hours while students demanded she be fired for attending a pro-Israel rally.”

Students reportedly were screaming that the teacher needed to be fired because she supported Israel.

The video was posted on TikTok — a social media app controlled by the Chinese Communist Party that has spread pro-Hamas and anti-Israel propaganda in the weeks following the October 7 terrorist attack.

The comments on the video were vile and racist, with people calling the teacher a “cracker a** b****” for supporting Israel.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) sent a couple of dozens police officers, including its counterterrorism bureau, to quell the uprising at the school.

“Whether it was one student or multiple students who did or said something, whatever the trigger was, something happened,” said City Councilman James Gennaro (D-Queens). “And I know from my many years on the City Council that the counterterrorism task force is not engaged unless they believe it is potentially a serious situation.”

New York City Mayor Eric Adams claimed that New Yorkers were “better than this.”

“The vile show of antisemitism at Hillcrest High School was motivated by ignorance-fueled hatred, plain and simple, and it will not be tolerated in any of our schools, let alone anywhere else in our city,” he said. “@NYCSchools is already conducting a full investigation into how this incident took place, and, this week, Project Pivot teams will begin outreach with students at Hillcrest to ensure they understand why this behavior was unacceptable.”

Patricia Heaton ‘Alarmed’ By The Rapid Spread Of Anti-Semitism, Hamas Support




“[I’m] alarmed at the horror #hamas perpetrated upon innocent people; alarmed at the biased anti-Israel tone of so many media outlets, especially @BBCNews and @SkyNews, the very people whose country fought the Nazis so valiantly; alarmed at the immediate and well-organized pro-Hamas protests that sprung up all over the West; alarmed at govt orgs like @UN who are clearly antisemitic; alarmed at universities’ and students’ embrace of terrorism and oppressive cultures; alarmed at citizens tearing down posters of innocent hostages; alarmed at so many seemingly nice, integrated people, especially in the medical field, revealing genocidal beliefs against Jews; alarmed at law enforcement officers not lifting a hand to stop public calls for violence and death to Jews; alarmed at the silence of supposedly feminist groups who refuse to condemn #Hamas raping women; alarmed at the silence from so many in Hollywood who are normally quick to jump on any social bandwagon,” she wrote.

Heaton noted that in 2015, “‘Je Suis Charlie’ was on everyone’s lips and social media platforms after the murder of innocents in Paris, particularly at the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices,” she continued. “What has changed? Why is there now such a reluctance to condemn this barbaric and murderous mindset? What are people afraid of? How did so many get brainwashed? Isn’t this something we all need to be deeply concerned about? Or have I just been out of work too long and have too much time on my hands?”

Schumer Rips The Woke Left For Rise In Anti-Semitism Across U.S.



Schumer said that those anti-Semitic statements largely were not coming from the far-Right, but from “people that most liberal Jewish Americans felt previously were their ideological fellow travelers.”

“Not long ago, many of us marched together for black and brown lives, we stood against anti-Asian hatred, we protested bigotry against the LGBTQ community, we fought for reproductive justice out of the recognition that injustice against one oppressed group is injustice against all,” he said. “But apparently, in the eyes of some, that principle does not extend to the Jewish people.”


Schumer spoke at length about the hatred that Jews have faced throughout history and about his family’s history facing persecution before addressing specific examples of what is alarming Jews across the country.

Are American Jews finally getting fed up with their Ivy League obsessions?

By Andrea Widburg


I’m routinely asked why non-conservative/non-orthodox American Jews are so committed to the Democrat party despite mounting evidence for years now that the Democrat party is the party of American antisemitism. I could talk about 19th-century Jews becoming socialists because the socialists opposed the antisemitic Russian Tsar or 20th-century American Jews finding the Democrat party more welcoming than the Republican. But here’s the real reason why American Jews are leftists: It’s their obsession with academic credentials, especially from the fanatically leftwing Ivies. That, however, may finally change.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, American Jews saw that a college degree was a ticket to wealth in America. For upwards of 100 years, if you could rise above a blue-collar job in America, you could get into the middle class.
However, for over half a century, antisemitism was a hallmark of American academia. This wasn’t the murderous antisemitism we’re seeing now, though. Instead, it was simply the “you’re not one of us, stay away” antisemitism that characterized pre-modern America’s response to Jewish immigrants:

Virtually every major part of the selective college application process — the freshman class cap, the interview, an emphasis on outside interests and character, the desire for geographical diversity, the legacy preference — were put into use in an effort to cut down on the Jewish student population. Columbia University in New York City, followed by Harvard, Yale and Princeton universities, found novel ways to cut back on, and then keep down, Jewish enrollment that stemmed from a historic wave of Jewish immigration beginning in the late 19th century, historians say. Hundreds more schools over the decades restricted Jewish enrollment, too, with quotas and other measures, some of which remained in force until the 1960s, historians say.

We’ve Talked About Twitter, But TikTok Is ‘Like Al Jazeera on Steroids’ with Antisemitism



Greenblatt stated, “We’ve been on this show. We’ve talked about Instagram, we’ve talked about Twitter or X, and you’ve seen my back-and-forth with Elon Musk. But we need to talk about TikTok. TikTok, if you will, is the 24/7 news channel of so many of our young people and it’s like Al Jazeera on steroids, amplifying and intensifying the antisemitism and the anti-Zion[ism] with no repercussions. … [T]here’s been a lot of lamentations about the fact that TikTok’s ownership is Chinese, but, you know what? Oracle owns 10% of the company, General Atlantic owns a piece of the company, our friends at Sequoia Capital own a piece of the company. So, [do] Sequoia and General Atlantic, does Oracle want to be responsible for spreading anti-Zionism and antisemitism? It’s time to talk about TikTok. And I think we need members of Congress to be asking them, why aren’t they doing enough? And let me be clear, I’ve met with Shou Chew, the CEO. I’ve talked to their leadership. But it is long past time for TikTok and its owners and its investors to step up and say, enough, we’re going to take action.”

Jewish Alumni Group: Harvard Aims to Reduce Jews to 1-2% of Student Population




In a “December update,” the newly-formed “Harvard Jewish Alumni Alliance” reported Friday (original emphasis):

We have seen data that suggest that the Jewish population at the College has declined from 20-25% in the 1990s-2000s to 5-7% today, but that almost all that decline occurred in recent years. We have heard from multiple sources at the University that it is the official, undisclosed policy of the school to drive down Jewish admissions to 1-2% of the student body, proportionately matching Jews’ percentage of the U.S. population. This violates basic meritocratic principles and recent Supreme Court jurisprudence. Like the shameful Jewish quotas in Harvard’s past, current limits mimic the Soviets, who used similar tactics to limit Jewish access to education.

The purported 2% quota would go much further than the 15% Jewish quota then-Harvard President Abbott Lowell tried to impose a century ago, when the proportion of Jewish students at Harvard was over 20%.

The idea of imposing quotas on Jews has ideological roots in Nazi Germany, via apartheid South Africa.

Hendrik Verwoerd, an Afrikaner nationalist who later became a prime minister of South Africa, and was regarded as the architect of apartheid, had studied in Germany during the 1920s and was sympathetic to Nazi Germany.

In the 1930s, he opposed the admission of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany to South Africa. He also argued that Jewish participation in the South African economy should be limited to the Jewish proportion of the population. He argued that “by legislation it must be ensured, gradually but deliberately, that each White population group, as far as possible, has a share in each of the most important occupations, in accordance with the proportion it forms of the White population as a whole.”

Nationwide swatting spree targeting Jewish institutions appears coordinated, coming from outside US: FBI



A nationwide swatting spree targeting nearly 200 Jewish institutions over the weekend appears to have been a coordinated effort by an entity based outside the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation's top spokesperson said in a confidential memo to partner law enforcement agencies.

The communication, written by Assistant FBI Director Cathy Milhoan, and obtained by ABC News, says, "At this time, based on similar language and specific email tradecraft used, it appears the perpetrators of these threats are connected. Additionally, these threats appear to be originating from outside of the United States."

Milhoan continued, "To date, none of these email threats have involved any actual explosive devices or credible risk of harm to congregants."

Family of autistic Jewish teen who had swastika carved on his back by classmates sues school




The family of an autistic Jewish high school student who had a swastika carved on his back in a cruel antisemitic attack by classmates is suing his Las Vegas school.

The abused teen and his mom, identified only as S.K. and C.K. in court papers, claim the Clark County School District not only failed to protect the 18-year-old, but dropped the ball on providing him a proper education.

“At the outset, the district failed to provide [the student] a safe school environment that was free from harassment, intimidation and bullying,” according to the complaint filed Nov. 13 with the Nevada Department of Special Education.

“Specifically, on March 9, 2023, [the student] came home from school with a swastika physically carved into his back and the service dog bag was broken and re-sewn,” it said. “[He] refused to enter that specific bathroom after that day. The district denied any knowledge of the incident occurring.”

The teen has since been homeschooled.

“This horrific act against a defenseless Jewish student is a stark reminder of the deeply rooted issue of antisemitism that persists in our society,” Ziporah Reich, director of litigation at the Lawfare Project, which filed the complaint, said in a statement.

Jewish family targeted by anti-Semitic abuse in New Jersey's American Dream Mall over teen daughter's IDF jacket say 'dozens' of bystanders stood by just WATCHING as they were attacked




As they walked through the dense holiday crowds, a young man and woman began hurling obscenities at her daughter, who was wearing a jacket with the logo of the Israeli Defense Forces, which had been a gift from the girl's veteran grandfather.

'We hear a man calling and screaming, "free Palestine, f*** Israel, f*** you, you w**re" — "you b***h," he was calling my daughter,' Vaxman recalled in a phone interview on Tuesday.

'The crazy thing is that the mall was packed, and there were dozens of people kind of in a circle around us watching. Just watching. Nobody said anything. Nobody did anything. Nobody called security,' she added.

Video first shared on X by the watchdog group StopAntisemitism shows part of the disturbing confrontation, with a young woman and man both screaming obscenities at the Jewish family.

Vaxman said that a clip that shows her phone falling to the ground came after the female aggressor tried to 'punch' her and hit her phone instead, knocking it from her hand.






I'm not sure what the bystanders were supposed to do ?

I dunno... put down their damn cell phones, and support the family being attacked. :sshrug:
They probably didn't want to end up on the news being labeled a Nazi, Dox'd for their home address and their family hounded, fired from their jobs and prosecuted by the local DA for hate crimes.

This isn't 1950, this is 2024 .
In 1950 people were allowed to help without consequence, but today the same laws that put Chauvin in jail for forcing a drug addicted George Floyd to the ground would be used to prosecute and person who tried to help the Jewish people by stepping in.

In a Thursday post on X, the rapper — born Matthew Paul Miller — wrote that he and his band “should have played a sold out show at Meow Wolf” in NM on Wednesday and was “excited for (Thursday’s) show at the Rialto (Theatre) in Tucson.”

“Instead, the staff at these venues refused to come to work, forcing cancellations,” the post read. “Without our permission or approval, the venue in Santa Fe misinformed our fans cancelling the show was due to ‘security concerns,’ when the only concern was a group of staff unwilling to work my show.”

“Tonight in Tucson, we have offered to supplement their staff shortages on our own dime, but to no avail,” the post added. “They do this because they are either anti-Semitic or have confused their empathy for the Palestinian people with hatred for someone like me who holds empathy for both Israelis and Palestinians.”

“It is truly a sad day when dialogue with those you disagree with is abandoned for hate mongering and silencing artistic expression,” the post continued. “Unfortunately, it seems that more and more people are choosing to cast their lot with actions that tear people apart.”

Initially, the Rialto theater responded and said it had changed its tune and decided the show was still on with a headline that read, “Tucson’s Rialto Theater: Matisyahu Concert Tonight Still On,” only to reverse its decision a short time later, citing staffing shortage and “safety concerns,” the Tucson Star reported.
