Suspect in Hate Crime at L.A. Synagogue Is Probably Not a Trump Supporter

Posted on | November 26, 2018 | Comments Off on Suspect in Hate Crime at L.A. Synagogue Is Probably Not a Trump Supporter

Don’t expect to see this story on CNN. Call it a hunch:

A man was in custody Monday for allegedly trying to run over two men outside a synagogue in a largely Jewish Wilshire-area neighborhood and making anti-Semitic remarks in a case that has been classified by police as a hate crime.
No one was hurt in the confrontation that occurred about 9:30 p.m. Friday near La Brea and Oakwood avenues, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Mohamed Mohamed Abdi, 32, was booked on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon — the vehicle — and the case has been classified as a hate crime, Deputy Chief Horace Frank said at a news conference at LAPD headquarters.
Frank said Abdi, who remains in custody on $55,000 bail, was born in Mogadishu, Somalia, and lives in the United States as a U.S. citizen. The FBI was involved in the investigation, and Abdi could face federal charges, Frank said.
LAPD Chief Michel Moore said two men had just left a synagogue in the 300 block of La Brea Avenue and were walking toward Oakwood Avenue when Abdi allegedly tried to run them over with a vehicle.
“He’s yelling out hateful remarks regarding Jewish heritage and regarding these people of faith,” Moore said. “They watch him as he then turns his vehicle directly at them.”

David Bernstein writes at Instapundit:

After the Pittsburgh shooting, the Jewish left went nuts, blaming Trump, Trump-supporting Jews, and Israel (!) for the incident. The Atlantic’s Franklin Foer wrote, “Any strategy for enhancing the security of American Jewry should involve shunning Trump’s Jewish enablers. Their money should be refused, their presence in synagogues not welcome. They have placed their community in danger.”
The perp in L.A., however, was not a “white nationalist” but a Muslim named Mohammed Mohammed. I want Foer to follow his own logic. If “Trump’s Jewish enablers” were to blame for Pittsburgh, who in the Jewish community is to blame for Los Angeles? And who should be “shunned” now?

The liberal media only consider violent Jew-haters newsworthy when they can be connected, however tenuously, to Republicans. In the same way, sexual assault on university campuses is only newsworthy when “privileged” white males are accused. If you name is Mohammed Mohammed, no crime you commit is ever worth noticing, according to liberals, but if a crazy white guy goes on a murder rampage, it will get 24/7 coverage at CNN for a week. By the way, 2,718 people have been shot, 457 of them fatally, in Chicago so far this year. CNN doesn’t care.
