American Kristallnacht?

A few weeks ago, I lamented how Americans had gone to bed on October 7 in 2023 and woken up in Nuremberg 1933. All across the country, activists flooded the streets and especially college campuses to protest not the bloody massacres of civilians by a self-professed genocidal terrorist government in Gaza, but to blame the Jewish victims of the murders, rapes, and kidnappings. Could this possibly get worse, I wondered?

Wondered is probably the wrong word. Predicted is more apropos. Yesterday, America moved from Nuremberg 1933 to Kristallnacht 1938 or something very close to it, especially in the City of (ahem) Brotherly Love.  Palestinian activists took aim at a Jewish business that have no connection to Israel, other than the birthplace of its owner:

An anti-Semitic mob was blasted by Pennsylvana’s governor for screaming threats into a Jewish-owned falafel store in Philadelphia.

The group marched at the Goldie’s location in Center City chanting: ‘Goldie, Goldie you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide.’

The Philadelphia chain is owned by Mike Solomonov, an Israeli-born, Pittsburgh raised chef who has won the James Beard Award in the past.

In New York City, another mob tried to shut down businesses the night before while demanding an “intifada revolution.” For context, the intifada was Yasser Arafat’s name for a wave of terror attacks against Jewish civilians in an attempt to start a war — after being offered a two-state settlement by Israel and Bill Clinton:

Plus, back in Pennsylvania, UPenn students also called for an “intifada” here at home at the same time that another mob tried shutting down a Jewish business in Philly:

Earlier in the day, either the same mob or another similarly pro-Hamas demonstration attempted to shut down the Museum of Natural History before moving into a shopping district. They wanted to force their way into the museum to decolonize it, or something:

And last week, another pro-Hamas mob made sure to make its anti-bigotry known by calling an observer a “k*ke” (via Townhall’s Matt Vespa):

A few months ago, these scenes would have been unthinkable. No one doubted that latent anti-Semitism existed on the fringes of both ends of the political spectrum, but this has exploded on the Left into mainstream thought. We have seen an unending stream of anti-Semitism and intimidation of Jews since the early days of the war, and that was bad enough. Now, however, it’s spilling into the streets and taking aim at Jewish businesses and Jewish communities, and all with the same purpose: to marginalize Jews and push them out of public life, just as intended in 1930s Germany.

And all of this has emerged in just a few weeks. In America.

These anti-Semitic terrorist supporters draw all their support here from the left. Now, they are angry with Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden because he won’t publicly join them in calling for “death to the Jews”. Apparently, just funding Iran and lifting the sanctions off them so they can support terrorism and instigate this war against Israel isn’t enough. Again, the terrorist supporters is a left wing interest group. This can’t be emphasized enough.

The left has a large number of dissatisfied, narcicistic goons willing to blame anyone but themselves for how their life has played out. They will latch on to any excuse and blame anyone but themselves. These are the left’s shock troops.

Do we need another 9-11 event to compel sanity? Because by the looks of these crowds of middle-eastern, anti-occidentalist goons, it’s coming. And soon.

And the huge numbers of military age Chinese men, showing up with luggage at our border and being ushered right in. What could go wrong?
