Synagogue, garages spray-painted with racial slurs in West Rogers Park

A badly drawn Star of David and the words F - U! were among the scribblings residents awoke to Sunday morning on synagogues, garages and other buildings in a largely Jewish area of West Rogers Park.

Its outrageous, Its very sad, said one resident, as she saw the words Monday sprayed in black paint on the back side of the tiny synagogue in the 2900 block of West Touhy shes attended for two-plus decades.

In all, a dozen or more buildings appeared to have been hit with the racial slurs and other profanity.

About 6:40 a.m. Sunday, police responded to the store-front synagogue. Officers later got word of similar incidents in the 2800 block of West Estes and the 5700 and 5800 blocks of North Talman. Police labeled the incidents as criminal damage to property. There had been no arrests as of Monday evening.

4. Worse when it is here...

They fired me. The fucking kikes fired me! In the middle of the night!

I was picking up some extra coin by shilling here. The idea was to spout your liberal (sometimes loony) orthodoxy most of the time, but every ten or fifteen posts throw in a conservative point. Apparently, the two kikes I worked for (and that's not an insult, as they actually are Jews) didn't think I was trolling enough, so the gasbait fucking fired me without even giving me a decent notice!

For the record, there are some issues like global warming, taxing the rich, and legal pot where I do agree with most of the people here. But fags getting married and adopting children? Women who dress like sluts and then complain when they get "raped"? Three successive Administrations that refuse to enforce our border laws? FUCK THAT!
A Jury voted 7-0 to hide this post on Thu Nov 20, 2014, 04:37 AM. Reason: This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

(I got ban this one...MWAHAHAHA! but not before he logged 464 posts!)

They're mocking both Christmas and #blacklivesmatter

(DU'er) is a Jew, despite the name. They're the people doing everything they can to ban or cancel Christmas, while telling us, with a straight face, that there's no War On Christmas. Lying comes to them as naturally as breathing.

Probably refers to black people as "schwarzes" when in private with other Jews, too. #blacklivesmatter is just another way for them to attack the white Christian majority. They don't really care about blacks.
(Troll...MIRT destroyed this one!)

I guess some Jew is sad they won't be getting any presents tomorrow

Too bad.......Merry Christmas.
(Again, another casualty of the MIRT!)

You should have cancelled Hanukkah if you wanted to make a point

We both know the real reason you wish Christmas could be cancelled, don't we?
(MIRT was on a roll!)

Of course, there is the most recent one that admins KO'd who decided to use a Nazi flag as his avatar.

I guess what I am saying is it isn't just buildings that have this shit "scrawled" upon them.

12. That's fricking deranged. But I see 'cool' slurs used here from CTers. As the TOS says...

They're not welcome here.

It's really an epidemic, I'm pretty old, didn't expect to see this uptick.

Things are going backwards with a vengeance.

That was one effed up poster who didn't miss one meme.

Filthy.

Sometimes, sadly, a few do slip by us and can do some damage.

36. The person who posted the following however, remains on DU:

 

This was the morning after the last election:

"The openness and brazenness of the LBGT agenda and the media flaunting of gay marriages all across the country cost Dems dearly and threatens to do so in the future."

This poster is very popular on DU in fact. Also lectures about how others are very bigoted. It's all about creating division or attempting to do so.

16. It is a classic way to pit minority communites against one another.

The one troll has been on a roll recently attacking the AA community mainly, but has a "soft spot" for Jews, women, and gay men. You can see his racist "contributions" to DU here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=6019528

23. That's just plain ugly BtA. So very sorry.

Looks like MIRT has been very busy, turning the lights up brightly and sending the roaches back into their holes. Not before you are zapping their butts though.

I alerted on that in AA. It accepted my alert, but was already gone 7-0 hide. A few minutes later I checked and saw they were banned. Good riddance to all of them. Sadly you are right, there is some ugly shit posted here.

24. That's sick

And it's an excellent "companion piece" to 1Strong's reent thread - and the one by Tobin.

What I just read is sick.

Don't anyone tell me there isn't rampant anti semitism going around.

This shit could have been written by French people circa 1938. Yeah another dirty little secret. No one thought there was anti semitism there too.

27. I may disagree with BTA on Israel

But this happened in AMERICA, and frankly, I would like the people who did this nonsense to learn the difference, in a nice prison cell, where they can have the pleasure of meeting many of the ayran brotherhood types I used to have to deal with when I worked for the department of corrections. These suburban would be supervillains would learn that they are NOT the top of the food chain.

As far as the posters, yes, this is a wonderful companion piece to Tobin and 1strong. The sad part is, as much as I like to believe Skinner and CO still have some good intentions, we know that there has been more than enough smoke to wonder where the hell the fire dept is? Like I have said, as long as I know that money I would send could go to help the DI folks, I will not give any, because I am not going to help people that are actively trying to wreck the DU community, especially as they are enjoyign WAY too much success as of late.

30. The admin. can see the ip of these idiots! I wish the ip of all posters was visable to everyone!

Some of these people post from work.

yes Americans have Freedom of speech and can state these hurtful things. But not from a workplace and it is against the law to spray paint other peoples homes.

The admin/owner of these message boards shouldn't just ban these idiots, every single one of them need a email to their ISP/with a copy of what they posted and the service provider will cancel their service!!

5. They will likely do it again...and get a big "meh!" except from a few.

Simply one more thing to add to the FBI's "Hate Crime Stats" for 2014, which will be out in December of 2015. 17.4% of all hate crimes in 2013 were religious bias, of which 60% were against Jews.

31. Was the other 40% the war on Christmas?

In seriousness... You are correct, and this shit will continue. I personally feel ass holes like this are in the minority, however they are quite unashamed and bold. So they tend to scream the loudest.

I just found out my neighbor did not put his Christmas lights up this year because he was afraid of vandalism. I had not noticed, but last year his lights were vandalized and "faggot" was scrawled on his door. He did not say anything to me (his room mate told me), and I simply assumed he did not have time to put them up. So fucking disheartening.

And yeah, we're Jewish.

It ain't new. Jews have been victimized in just about every country in the world. Used, abused and chased around with the backing of a book that calls us greedy backstabbers and haters on both sides of the aisle.

25. + 100

I have the advantage of being a black woman - well mixed. I've shared some of my experiences with BTA in pm's. People say things to me not realizing I've celebrated many seders at my mom's paternal grandparents house as a kid. I'm talking people of all walks of life, races, various Christian sects/ denominations.

There is a lot of ugly out there.

And in a strange twist - its two Muslim couples we are friends with who would never say these things - let alone think them. One couple from Egypt. Another who are both first generation Americans. The Egyptian couple in particular - as they are not devout - understand tolerance and kindness.

But a few born again types I know? Not friends with but know? Evil.

And then there's the man we introduced to my girlfriend J who was alll about her - until he found out - I quote "She's a Jewess?". Yeah - he's not allowed at our home anymore and my husband got him kicked out of a men's social club he's belonged to for many years.

I'm very glad BTA posted this. I'm not imagining these things. I'm just not.

I see a spray painted Star of David with an X drawn over it.

Aren't we trending a bit closer to "hate crime" than simply "criminal damage to property?"

Is that it garners much less vituperative interest than the thread about the Orthos not sitting next to women. This offends less. That's the moral of the story. This post however will invigorate the replies in this thread. Watch and see BoA.

P.S. Happy New Year Again!!!!!
