Andrew Cuomo’s joke of a statement on stabbing at rabbi’s home makes New Yorkers more angry

Powered by Topple

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo unleashed the gates of hell on himself Sunday by posting a tweet so “phony” and “fake” that hundreds of people emerged to shut him down.

Following a mass stabbing at a Rabbi’s home in Rockland County late Saturday evening, Cuomo rushed to Twitter to virtue-signal.


Was he really horrified, though? And was he even remotely serious about holding criminals, including anti-Semites, accountable for their actions? The evidence suggests not.

As noted by the hundreds of people who popped up to fact-check him, his policies have eroded accountability from the system by granting criminals a get-out-of-jail-free card.

“There’s no more cash bail for most misdemeanor and nonviolent felony arrests,” Spectrum News reported in October. “The list includes criminally negligent homicide and unlawful imprisonment. If you’re accused of one of those crimes you’ll be issued an appearance ticket. The expectation is you’ll go back to court for your next court date instead of possibly sitting and waiting in jail.”

Except that these seemingly benign “nonviolent felony arrests” cover a whole host of very “un-benign” crimes, including aggravated vehicular manslaughter, arson in the third/fourth degree, money laundering in support of terrorism in the third/fourth degree and much more.

It’s an arguably insane policy, but thanks to it, an anti-Semitic woman who confessed to purposefully punching three Orthodox Jewish women in Brooklyn early Saturday morning was immediately released after being arraigned. So was an unlicensed illegal alien whose poor driving led to the death of a mother of three.

And thanks to this policy, it’s unclear how many more reprobates and anti-Semites will also benefit, as noted by the legions of folks who came after Cuomo.


The anger was palpable.

It’s not clear whether his bail reform measures will apply to the synagogue suspect, who’s been identified as 37-year-old Thomas Grafton, though the possibility certainly exists given all the other reprobates who’ve been automatically freed as of late.

They include someone who reportedly sucker-punched a cop:

As well as eight other anti-Semites, including the woman who punched three Orthodox Jewish women.

“Suspects arrested in last week’s spree of eight anti-Semitic attacks are being quickly released right back into the neighborhoods they terrorized thanks to ‘bail reform’ legislation — which doesn’t even take [formally] effect until Jan. 1,” the New York Post notes.

On Sunday in Manhattan, a man reportedly punched and kicked a 65-year-old Jewish man who’d been wearing a yarmulke. Two days later, a group of people reportedly harassed a 25-year-old Jewish man. Later that same day, another group of people reportedly punched a 56-year-old Jewish man from behind. Etc., Etc., Etc.

Meanwhile, instead of examining the Democrat Party’s failed policies, liberals are either virtue-signaling about the evils of anti-Semitism or blaming the growing crime and anti-Semitism in New York on President Donald Trump:
