Obama Campaign Worker Arrested for Anti-Semitic Graffiti at New York Synagogue

Right on cue, a left-winger was arrested for painting anti-Semitic graffiti in a Jewish synagogue in an effort to pin it on conservatives.

Last week a crazed, anti-Trump neo-Nazi went on a rampage and killed 11 Jewish church-goers in Pittsburgh, but days later another synagogue, this one in New York, was found with disgusting, hateful things spray-painted on it.

Immediately liberals pinned both incidents on Trump and conservatives despite the fact that the first incident where people died was committed by a man who hated Trump and conservatives. And now, with the second, we find out was committed by a former Obama campaign operative.

Trending: Watch: Chilling “Pro-Choice” Ad That’s Horrifyingly Evil

On November 2, New York police arrested James Polite, a Democrat, for vandalizing a New York synagogue.

“Die Jew rats we are here,” one message read. Another said “Jews better be ready,” and yet another said “Hitler.”

According to FrontPageMag:

The next day, CNN failed to report that Polite, 26, was a Democrat activist who had worked on the Obama campaign in 2008. CNN described him as a “Brooklyn man” arrested and charged with a hate crime for the anti-Semitic messages and “criminal mischief and making graffiti.” Other reports found more background on the Democrat, who had been identified through surveillance footage.

The Daily Caller found that the New York Times had profiled Polite last year, noting that he had been the “adopted child” of Manhattan Democrat Christine Quinn, then speaker of the New York city council, and the entire city council staff. Polite worked on Quinn’s reelection campaign in 2009 and pitched in with Quinn’s mayoral bid in 2013. Polite’s Facebook profile was more revealing.

On November 1, a day before the synagogue vandalism, he posted a photo of a burning American flag captioned “Sometimes things take a lil heat to grow.” CBS reported that police believed Polite had “set fires outside seven shuls and yeshivas in Williamsburg overnight,” and also captured on security cameras. In other Facebook posts, the Daily Caller reported,

“Polite rails against Israel and posts about Palestinian causes.”

This thing is, this guy is no different than the average, rage-filled, Democrat. He represents most Democrats these days.
