      You don’t think it might be a DNC-hired agent provocateur?

      Until we know who did this and why this is all speculation.

      As I said in an earlier post, it was a trump voter.

      I assume that’s meant to be irony.

    Trump just appointed Stephen Bannon, a proud and vocal anti-Semite, as his chief strategist. What more will it take for people to wise up and stop blaming his bigotry on other people and realize he is himself the problem? How it is more believable that this was the work of a so-called agent provocateur than an actual Trump supporter, given that he ran on a platform of racism, misogyny, fear-mongering, and hate?

      And the Clintons retained the services of Robert Creamer during the campaign season. Creamer is a “consultant” who specializes in fomenting violence at opposition rallies. It is no stretch to assert they are capable of spray-painting a sidewalk to keep the public afraid, angry and agitated.

      Bannon is a loathsome person who ruined the legacy of Andrew Breitbart a”h, but to the best of my knowledge he is not an antisemite. He is certainly not a “proud and vocal” one. On the contrary, if he is one he has hidden it fairly successfully. (Accusations made during divorce proceedings are not reliable evidence.)

      And Trump did not run “on a platform of racism, misogyny, fear-mongering, and hate”. I am very very far from a fan of his, and did not vote for him, but that’s just an outright fabrication designed to scare people into voting for Clinton. Fortunately for him, it didn’t fool enough people; anyone could listen to his speeches and see that he just wasn’t saying these things.

    There was a swastika spray-painted in front of my home on President St a few months after the Crown Heights riots. I just threw paint over it and cursed the non-Jewish neighbors who were looking. Calling the police doesn’t stop the hate and publicizing it just brings attention to negative behavior
