There is hate filling our streets and in our schools.

Middle School Threats

On X (formerly known as Twitter), Libs of TikTok reported a shocking incident at a middle school in Manhattan Beach, CA, involving four Jewish students who have been subjected to nasty comments – to put it mildly – in the wake of the Hamas attack on Israel. Among the things said, “Revenge is beautiful” and “All Jews should be killed.”

The school reportedly investigated the claims and told the victims and their parents that they needed to sign a gag agreement that warned them not to tell other students about the incident. School leaders also reportedly suggested the words were political, not hateful. The school board said student privacy laws prevent it from disclosing the results of the investigation but “appropriate consequences have been administered” – including, obviously, shutting up the victims. 

The news infuriated a rabbi who spoke to a local NBC affiliate. “These girls were not sought out because they were Israeli, because they were soldiers of the Israeli Defense forces. They are young Jewish girls who were sought out at lunch and, to me, there’s nothing political about that. That is hate,” he said. “These four girls did nothing. They were just being themselves. And to reprimand them, to me, seems extremely unjust.”

The Anti-Defamation League of California is now calling on the district to conduct a more thorough investigation.

KJP Flubs Antisemitism Question

This comes as the White House press secretary appears to have trouble understanding English – again. Karine Jean-Pierre was asked a question about antisemitism in America, and she responds with her deep concerns about what’s happening to Muslims. You cannot make it up.

Reporter: What is the level of concern right now about the potential rise of antisemitism in light of everything that is going on in Israel?

Karine Jean-Pierre: So, a couple of things. Look, we have not seen any credible threats. I know there’s been always questions about credible threats. And so just want to make sure that that’s out there. But look, Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim have endured a disproportionate number of hate-fueled attacks. Certainly President Biden understands that many of our Muslim-Arab, Arab-American, and Palestinian-American loved ones and neighbors are worried about the hate being directed at their communities.

What are you saying? The question was about antisemitism. Not everything has to go back to Islamophobia. She either wasn’t listening or she just can’t get off of her Democratic talking points of ‘what’s really important here is any backlash against the people who perpetuated this disgusting attack.’ That is how the left is talking about Israel already. 

After the briefing, KJP attempted to clarify her position. “To be clear: the President and our team are very concerned about a rise in antisemitism, especially after the horrific Hamas terrorist attack in Israel,” she tweeted. She wasn’t clear the first time because people like Karine Jean-Pierre are obsessed with skin color and identity. I don’t believe for one second that she simply wasn’t paying attention. I think it was her own priors kicking it.

Antisemitism in the U.S.

Look, we’ve documented at length on this show what is happening to Jews in America. There have been numerous incidents of people ripping down posters of innocent Israelis and Jewish Americans who have been kidnapped by Hamas. In most instances, they just pull down the posters and walk along their merry way. There have been attacks on Jewish people.

Thank God for the @StopAntisemitism X account. If it weren’t for that account, none of these people would be identified and caught. This lovely couple here in Brooklyn was just the latest. When confronted by a Jewish woman about tearing down the hostage posters, the wife clutches the papers in her hands and the husband starts laughing:

Isn’t it so fun when you try to impede the investigation and recovery of hostages and suffering children? Such a good time. I’d love to have that guy over for cocktails. 

And then there are those who are publicly celebrating the deaths, still calling for the annihilation of Israel. Just last night in New York City, X user Eli Klein tweeted he came home to this:


The calls for “intifada” are believed by many Jews experiencing to be a call for the elimination entirely of Israel not to mention Jews including right here in America.
