Cuomo said, “We tend to treat these situations as isolated episodes, but really if we just connect the dots, we have a pattern of hate in this nation that is only getting worse. We’ve seen almost weekly attacks on people based on race, color, creed. It’s hate-motivated. Apparently, there was another shooting in Texas today in a church. We’ve seen attacks against African-Americans, Latinos, LGBTQ community. And let’s call it what it is and let government act because this can destroy this nation. It is corrosive. It’s an American cancer.”
He continued, “It starts at the top, and then it goes on to a point where it becomes viral across this nation. And it is now viral. And you see it coming to the surface in different manifestations from coast to coast. And we’re comforted treated it as isolated episodes, but there’s a pattern to all of this, and it spells hate.”
He added, What can anyone make of President Trump’s tweets? They say more about the sender than anything else. New York, he believes, is a Democratic state, and this is how he plays to his partisan base by demonizing Democrats. Democrats are evil, Democrats are bad, Democrats have lost their mind, they’re anti-American. You foment that hate, and then you’re shocked when you see these episodes of hate all across the country? That has now become the dialogue and the currency of this nation, and it’s in politics, but then it resonates out of the politics into society. And now you see people who are acting out on those hateful acts and people are impressionable, and some people are lost, and some people are vessels and some people are ill, and they hear it and they respond.”

This commie is the worst.
Harris was screaming, “F*** you, Jews!” during her assault on the women.
There have been at least eight anti-Semitic attacks in New York City just last week.
Mayor de Blasio: An atmosphere of hate has been developing in this country over the last few years. A lot of it is emanating from Washington and is having an effect on all of us.
Ed Henry: So you’re saying your’re blaming the president.
Mayor de Blasio: Not just the president. But we need to be clear we need a different tone starting in Washington.

Bill de Blasio on Hanukkah Attack: Trump's 'Hateful Speech' Emboldened Violent Forces
This article was sourced from BreitbartOn Sunday broadcast of MSNBC’s “Weekends,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio commented on five people being stabbed in an attack at a synagogue in New York’s Rockland County.
De Blasio said, “For the last three years in this country the forces of hate have been unleashed, and we see more and more violence associated with those hateful impulses. Some of it organized and premeditated. The uptick in hate crimes in this city has led the NYPD to recognize we’ve got to get under the skin of these trends and see if they can disrupt them.”
He continued, “We’ve also known for years that there are white supremacists forces that are organizing to do violence. We know about the militias in some parts of the country. They’ve targeted law enforcement. These right-wing militias have targeted law enforcement for years in this country. Unfortunately, that trend is growing, that form of extremism. We’ve got to be able to track it and disrupt it in a way that, honestly, we didn’t face before in the city, nor much of the country. But let’s be honest, the last three years everything has changed. Once hate gets normalized, it spreads like wildfire, and it takes a more violent form, and we’ve got to stop it now before we end up making the wrong kind of history.”
He added, “It’s not a time for a partisan discussion, but it is a time to say some of the most hateful speech is emanating from Washington, D.C. What we need our president to do is be a unifier, a calming positive voice, reminding us of what we have in common as Americans. That’s what presidents have done for generations. We’ve missed that. And the hateful speech even if it’s not inciting specific violence, let’s face it, we have seen these violent forces emboldened. We saw it in Charlottesville. We’ve seen it all over the country. And we’ve got to be honest about it without falling into a partisan battle to say something is different in recent years. I’ll be the first to say there were other problems before that. There were campus shootings and other horrible things, but the connection to racial and ethnic motivation, that has been growing in the last few years, and that’s what we’ve got to stop.”
New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio Blames Anti-Semitic Attacks On Hate ‘Emanating From Washington’

Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio blamed hate “emanating from Washington” Sunday for anti-Semitic attacks throughout the country.
The New York City mayor told Fox News’s Ed Henry on “America’s News HQ” that the hate coming from Washington is “having an effect on all of us.”
“I also want us to be clear what’s happening here,” de Blasio said Sunday. “An atmosphere of hate has been developing in this country over the last few years. A lot of it is emanating from Washington and it’s having an effect on all of us.” (RELATED: 5 Stabbed In Rabbi’s Home During Hanukkah Celebration)
Henry questioned de Blasio as to whether the New York mayor was blaming President Donald Trump for the attacks, to which de Blasio responded, “Not just the president — I’m saying, but we have to be clear. We need a different tone starting in Washington.”
“We had, by the way, with Democrats and Republicans, both in the White House, that encouraged this country to actually find some unity and some common ground,” de Blasio added. “We haven’t had that for the last few years.”
De Blasio’s comments come after a suspect stabbed five people Saturday night in Monsey, New York, during a Hanukkah celebration at a rabbi’s home. Police arrested the suspect about two hours later in New York City, a New York Police Department spokeswoman said, according to NBC.
Trump tweeted about the incident Sunday afternoon.
The anti-Semitic attack in Monsey, New York, on the 7th night of Hanukkah last night is horrific. We must all come together to fight, confront, and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism. Melania and I wish the victims a quick and full recovery.
“The anti-Semitic attack in Monsey, New York, on the 7th night of Hanukkah last night is horrific,” the president said. “We must all come together to fight, confront, and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism. Melania and I wish the victims a quick and full recovery.”

“We must all come together to fight, confront, and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism. Melania and I wish the victims a quick and full recovery.”
Five people were injured when a crazed, knife-wielding attacker stormed a rabbi’s basement synagogue on Saturday night as a group celebrated Hanukkah. The attack came after a week of a slew of anti-Semitic attacks on New York City’s Jewish community.
Monsey attack suspect Grafton Thomas, 38, is being held on $5 million bail and has been charged with five counts of attempted murder.
