ANTI-SEMITIC? Democrat District Leader For Williamsburg Says He is “Likely To Die Getting Hit From Hasidic Bus”

16

Nick Rizzo is the Democratic District Leader for Williamsburg and Greenpoint.

On Tuesday, he caused a Twitter-storm after he wrote “I think I’m likely to die in an extremely Brooklyn way, whether that’s getting hit by a Hasidic schoolbus while riding my bike or a heart attack while arguing with a pseudonymous southern Brooklyn twitter account.”

His tweet caused a backlash of people accusing him of being anti-Semitic.

One Twitter user challenged him by saying “I have no idea why about 70K of your constituents deserve this. Can you tell me when a Hasidic bus killed a cyclist, ever?”

Instead of responding to the challenge of facts, Rizzo responded that “only” 40,000 of his constituents were Hasidic.

RIzzo doesn’t seem to be concerned about the FACT that there have been multiple incidents in his own district, where bicycle riders have slammed into people exiting school buses – despite having their red flashers on.

Apparently, two other District Leaders contacted Rizzo to complain over his tweets.

Douglas M. Schneider, the Democratic District Leader/State Committee Member for Brooklyn’s 44th Assembly District blasted Rizzo by saying “Bikers have been killed by charter busses, tractor trailers, distracted drivers, sanitation trucks & car doors, but never a “Hasidic bus.” @nickrizzo’s fear of Hasidic drivers is irrational & bigoted. We cant tolerate bigotry from BK Democratic Party leaders. He should apologize.”

YWN notes that Nick Rizzo was a staunch supporter of Julia Salazar, the blatantly lying socialist who claimed she was Jewish – but was nothing of the sort, who went on to win a race for NY State Senate. In fact, Rizzo’s Twitter account still has an image as the header announcing “Julia Salazar for Brooklyn”. Salazar is a supporter of the anti-semitic BDS movement.

  1. Its no different then someone saying the same thing about school busses in any other town like , monsey, kj, lakewood ,brooklyn which have an over abundance of school busses in relation to the sq mileage of said town.
    Schools bus drivers are known to”own the roads”
    Blow through stop signs, fail to yeild etc.. so yes, it highly likely to get killed by one of those busses.
    Instead of facing the issue head on, your always pulling the anti semitic card.
    Its like the boy who cried wolf one too many times.
    Guess what!
    The anti semitic song is quite frankly getting old. Try singing s new tune for a change.

  2. This is getting ridiculous already. No one can say anything anymore without being called an antisemite, racist or phobic. All this guy did was complain how the buses drive. How does that make him an anti semite?

  3. The issue is that in our world of hypersensitivity, all criticism of any ethnic group – true or not, has been banned. The only group that it is ok to criticize is Hasidic Jews. So yes, this is scary because if the same was true about Black, Middle Eastern or Hispanic school bus drivers, you would be a racist for expressing it, but since it is about Hasidic Jews it is ok to express it. In other words, it is the contrast which makes this scary.

  4. Also Im not denying that he is antisemitic (as he supports BDS), I’m just saying the way these Hasidic school buses drive is atrocious.

  5. “This is getting ridiculous already. No one can say anything anymore without being called an antisemite, racist or phobic.”

    Did you actually read ALL the tweets in the article? I would agree if the only problem was a comment about the school bus.

    Can you back up your claim?

  7. Yes. Anyone who has attended the hearings in towns in nj an ny that want to keep the Jews out have heard the vile accusations of how the Jews change the “character” of the neighborhood. They even put it on lawn signs. Try that when blacks move into the neighborhood and you will be tarred and feathered. How many Shuls and how much yiddishe gelt were lost in major cities over the past 60 years because the neighborhood “changed” and anythihng said would be racist, yet the Asbury Park Press could run articles bemoaning the fact that the poor black community nebach had to move out and sell their churches because the big bad jrw
