Rise in anti-Semitism graffiti and hateful images across the country as New Yorkers fight back

Source: CW News

NEW YORK, NY - Who is spreading these hateful images across America?

From New York City to Houston's Rice University, vandals are creating symbols and messages of hate and anti-Semitism.

In Chicago, a suspect was caught on surveillance footage shattering the glass windows of a synagogue and leaving behind these Nazi decals.

"Unfortunately, there seems to be some more of that going on these days," one observer said.

Even more alarming, the Feds are investigating bomb threats against dozens of Jewish community centers all across the country in 26 states over the past month!

"It is significant," the JCC Association of North America's Director of Strategic Performance David Posner revealed. "We've not seen things like this before....isolated incidents, but nothing like this."

Swastika and ‘TRUMP’ Graffiti Scrawled on Statue at Houston’s Rice University

A swastika was drawn in bright-colored chalk on the base of the founders statue at Rice University in Houston.

The word “TRUMP” accompanied the swastika on the 2,000-pound William Marsh Rice statue, located in the heart of the academic quad of the campus, the Houston Chronicle reported. The vandalism reportedly occurred on Friday night, according to the university.

Rice was not Jewish although the prestigious university does have a large Jewish student population.

It is the third act of racist vandalism on the campus this month.

1. with Obama's election, the racists came out from under their rocks like cockroaches

Trump has emboldened the racists to attempt to make ignorance, hatred and fear SOP

there are more of us than them, and we must unite and RESIST / FIGHT BACK

*edited to add I know Judaism is not a race, but I believe they are targeted by the same folk who practice racism
