I had to put this up yet again as there’s suddenly quite the interest in and around Columbus, Ohio (coming from a certain IP address of a certain manufacturer that is one of the largest employers in the region) in only one post on this blog which I wrote about a certain individual who was present at the violence in Charlottesville not that long ago. The repeated visits to that one post only are frequent. The post included the statement of B’nai B’rith International. I have no idea whether such visitor is the would-be-killer himself, or a horrified fellow Jew, or some “white nationalist” as they are called. I did give a disclaimer in that post that I am both Jewish and a Catholic priest. Anyway…
What I do know is that the audio of youtube video on that other post has been altered to such a degree that it cannot be understood. Perhaps the interested person is the one who altered that audio. I don’t know. That would be quite the computer hack. But I’m sure the computers at that massive company are some of the best computers in the world. Of course, it could be done by the social engineers at Google / YouTube, right? You know, just to provoke something. Maybe. I wouldn’t put it past them.
At any rate, there is another video, this time from The Washington Post, which contains the would-be-killer’s statement in understandable audio about being there “for killing Jews.” That other, much longer video, is at the top of this post. The would-be-killer can be heard saying his thing between the 1.00 minute mark and 1.12. If this video is removed or the audio altered, I think I’ll give a call to some FBI friends and have the computers of that massive company investigated to see who was on those computers (just a few IP addresses). We shall see.
Here’s that statement from B’nai B’rith International once again:
We vehemently condemn the white supremacist and neo-Nazi-backed sentiments and subsequent violence in Charlottesville, Va. The disgraceful rally these groups convened was for the express purpose of gathering hate-mongers and extremists to intimidate people all people and undermine the very principles of our democracy. Racist and anti-Semitic epithets were on vulgar display by these groups.
This abominable gathering serves as an important reminder that we must unite to stand against hatred and extremism. President Trump’s comments in the wake of the violence created a false equivalence between the peaceful rally protesters and the hate-mongers who incited violence. There are not “many sides” to the type of hate displayed at this rally.
From each individual through neighborhoods, communities, towns, cities, states and the nation as a whole, all Americans of good conscience must reject divisiveness and strive to embrace tolerance and unity.
