71% of anti-Semitic hate crimes are done by the growing alt-right

Antisemitism is on the rise in America and the biggest bullies are the growing alt-right, we need to support Republican, Democrat, Liberals and Conservatives who call out these group and ideologies its no longer time for partisan politics, we are see real hate crimes and real murders from in my opinion domestic terrorists.

NEW YORK (JTA) – The Anti-Defamation League found that 1,879 anti-Semitic acts were committed in the United States in 2018.

Right-wing individuals were responsible for 1,328 of those incidents – nearly 71 percent. Left-wing individuals were responsible for none of 2018’s attacks, and Islamist individuals were responsible for four, according to the organization’s data.

“Neither side of the political spectrum is exempt from intolerance. The idea that this is a problem with only one side is wrong,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency during a conference call. However, he added that “white supremacy is a global terror threat.”

Yep, there is plenty of anti-semitism on the left that has been ignored for some time, but the majority danger still remains the far-right.

Similar results in the UK, though the far right is politically marginalised here in a way the far left isn’t: https://www.jpr.org.uk/documents/JPR.2017.Antisemitism_in_contemporary_Great_Britain.pdf

“Levels of both antisemitism and anti-Israelism are consistently higher among the
Muslim population of Great Britain than among the population in general. The
presence of antisemitic and anti-Israel attitudes is 2 to 4 times higher among
Muslims compared to the general population. Non-religious Muslims are the least
likely group among all Muslims to hold antisemitic or anti-Israel attitudes, and come
closest to the levels found in the general population, although they still remain above
average. Yet most Muslims (60%) – religious or not – agree with the statement ‘A
British Jew is just as British as any other person,’ and most either disagree with,
or are neutral on, every one of the antisemitic statements presented to them.
Levels of antisemitism among those on the left-wing of the political spectrum,
including the far-left, are indistinguishable from those found in the general
population. Yet, all parts of those on the left of the political spectrum – including
the ‘slightly left-of-centre,’ the ‘fairly left-wing’ and the ‘very left-wing’ – exhibit
higher levels of anti-Israelism than average. The most antisemitic group on the
political spectrum consists of those who identify as very right-wing: the
presence of antisemitic attitudes in this group is 2 to 4 times higher compared to
the general population.
Although the prevalence of antisemitism on the farright is considerably higher than on the left and in the political centre, the farright remains marginal in British politics in general, as well as on the broader
political right.”

Well if Jonathan Greenblatt, former Special Assistant to President Obama says it, it must be true.

The Anti-Defamation League is an obvious fake news outlet. They cannot be trusted in matters of the Jewish faith. :roll_eyes:

Well because you question it …then it must be false…

I didn’t weigh in on whether it was true or false, the “article” linked in the OP provided no evidence one way or the other. It appeared to be the assertion of the person I mentioned. And that person has a decidedly partisan agenda.

Uh huh…sure…

There you go. A quick Google search could have saved you from coming across as callous. Not everyone has an agenda. Sometimes facts are difficult to acknowledge. I guess that’s why we have “alternate facts” now a days.

Its based on a report by ADL who track every hate crime in the U.S.

Shocker

Who is responsible for the other 547 hate crimes?
