When a Bernie Sanders-loving terrorist shot up a baseball field of Republican congressmen, the media didn't ascribe blame to the senator, but rather to the shooter — and rightly so. Yet when a deranged lifelong criminal with a history of bomb threats terrorizes Democratic politicians and liberal media figures, President Trump is to blame.
So now here's a new wrinkle. The latest in a string of anti-Semitic hate crimes in New York City was revealed to be committed by a liberal activist who had actually once been profiled by the New York Times. Naturally, the Times had to follow up. Except that the Times chose to make the perpetrator's personal problems the story, rather than the rise of left-wing anti-Semitism in New York City or, better yet, its victims.
