Hateful Halloween: Garden Place Vandalized With Swastikas

For those who haven’t heard yet, Garden Place – the street where everyone takes their kids for tricks and treets today – was vandalized last night with badly (and incorrectly) drawn swastikas, and the n-word (because why not just throw that in there, too). It’s shocking, but this isn’t the first time this has happened in Brooklyn Heights. According to the NYPD via Gothamist, “there have been a total of 142 anti-Semitic hate crimes reported this year, up from 126 at this time in 2017. It appears that 26 of those incidents occurred in the last three weeks alone. ”

One could only speculate wildly why that would be so </sarcasm>.

    It’s funny: the Daily News used to be arch-conservative (see Tom Paxton song linked below) and the Post liberal. Then Murdoch bought the Post and a wealthy but liberal guy bought the News (later sold to Tronc) (yes, the Daily News used to cost seven cents): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=802F7aZIWfk

    The Daily News also gets a sarcastic mention in Steely Dan’s song “Barrytown” as well: https://youtu.be/OWVhvoAeaFk
