Where Are the Pictures?

When Haredim engage in violence, it's always, without exception, unequivocally, for a reason.
What happened on Sunday, Dec. 1 that provoked the alleged Haredi outpouring of violence that resulted in serious bodily injury to one Taj Patterson, 22, on a street corner in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at 4:00 in the morning?

What happened on Sunday, Dec. 1 that provoked the alleged Haredi outpouring of violence that resulted in serious bodily injury to one Taj Patterson, 22, on a street corner in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at 4:00 in the morning?

Ah, allegedly, the fig leaf of the scoundrel. You can say any old nasty lie about folks you despise, so long as you sign it with “allegedly.”

The way failed messiah Shmaria Rosenberg uses it, for instance, is allegedly outright antisemitic poetry:

The members of a mob of hasidic men who allegedly savagely beat a 22-year-old African-American Brooklyn fashion student earlier this month were all wearing jackets or other clothing with police-style patches and appear to belong to a Shomrim haredi street patrol.

I’ve been called allegedly so many things in my unremarkable career, that I’ve learned to smell alleged rotten news eggs. So, I would like to get a satisfying answer to one question:

Why are there no pictures out there of the brutal Hasidim savagely maligning Patterson?

There can be only three possible reasons:

1. There are no pictures.

2. There are pictures, but the cops confiscated them.

3. There was no attack by Hasidim on Patterson. At least not the way he’s describing it.

Option 2 suggests a conspiracy on the part of the cops to conceal information. That’s heavy. It’s also highly doubtful.

I pray that none of the allegations against the Jews of Williamsburg turn out to be true. And I hope that my trust in the fact that Haredi Jews don’t ambush innocent men to beat them up for the fun of it doesn’t turn out to be yet another bashed assumption.

With so many allegedly antisemitic enemies without and within ready to copy, paste and disseminate alleged news about brutal Hasidim, I shudder at the thought of what might happen if the original report turned out to be true.

    As I have stated, this is some sort of false flag. I note that Blacks are rarely meantioned in the "knockout game" despite the fact that they (Blacks) are responsible for the overwhelming majority of these attacks. And most of the victims are non Black, Yet an unsubstantiated claim by a man so drunk is instantly jumped on by the media to attack the Heradi community.

  2. We all know this did not happen …15 minutes of fame

  3. Cody Flecker says:

    This story is absolutely false. Jews protecting themselves from attack? What planet are you people from. It is a well known fact that the Jews are the eternal scapegoats and willingly walk into the gas chambers without as much as putting up a fight. You all made my day with this nonsense of Jews protecting themselves or each other.

  4. Elaine Fox says:

    I dom’t know…. I just can’t imagine a gang of Haredim roaming around at 3:00 am looking for someone to beat up

  5. Donna Mayer says:

    Yeah right……. I’m sure that’s what happened. Not.

  6. All Jews do not walk into gas chambers or victimhood, some of us fight back and use whatever tactics are appropriate or called for. This young man must be another one of POTUS Obama's sons!

  7. he probably wants to get back at the jews for reported the true bad things the black kids did so ha made up something about the jews

  8. William T. Langley says:

    Obviously the story being put out by the lamestream media holds no credibility.

  9. Cindy Barr Pocius says:

    There are only a few people with an agenda that beleive this "story"

  10. Henry Fowler says:

    Jews enable ghetto Blacks to attack Whites…always have…The Haredim, and Jews in general, will wish Blacks were the only menace in the near future. Things are moving fast, and hands are being forced. Book those El Al flights while you can, you liberal, socialist Jews.

  11. Henry Fowler says:

    Dream on. Even Anne Frank's daddy walked away.

  12. Basha Kline says:

    the answer lies in the name of "Flushing Avenue!" – someone only complied!

  13. Hmmm – racism and fear? That's a reason. Not a good one but there it is.

  14. You're a ****ing asstard of the first degree. First and foremost this is a community of some of the smartest capitalists in N. Brooklyn. Secondly they are ANYTHING but liberal – finally – you're and ignorant dick.

  15. Keith Gilbert Holy **** – the idiocy on all sides of this argument is impressive. It really is. Obama's son? Ann Frank? All of you please leave the freaking gene pool. You are polluting it.
