As I’ve often noted on this site, in poll after poll–in almost every ethnicity in America–as socio-economic status rises, anti-Semitism goes down. The more wealthy and educated you are, the less anti-Semitic. But in one ethnic group, that’s not the case: Black America. And, thus, goes the City of Pontiac, a highly-populated, poor Black suburb of Detroit.
Recently, I told you about my client, Ron Wolf, a Detroit-area community activist who is Jewish. I represented him–and won–in a lawsuit filed by a Syrian Muslim extremist doctor, Haitham Masri, designed to silence Ron’s First Amendment speech rights in writing about Dr. Masri, his lack of ethics, and his extremist mosque. I got the lawsuit dropped. This week, Ron called to tell me about his experience at a Pontiac City Council meeting, at which Black residents of the largely Black city hurled anti-Semitic statements at Fred Leeb, a Jewish man who was made the City Financial Manager of the city, now in receivership after decades of mismanagement from frequently corrupt, always far-left Black leadership.
When Ron objected from his seat in the audience, demanding the anti-Semitic statements–which are on video–be retracted, the City Council called security to arrest him. But Ron contacted the local FOX News operation in Detroit, and reporter Brad Edwards did a good story on it. Check out the video, above. You can see my client, Ron, in the audience being yelled at from the podium, as the anti-Semitic rant goes on.
This is typical of Pontiac. The city mirrors Detroit in how its “leadership” has run it (into the ground) like a Third World fiefdom, so much so that the city rejected a bid on the decrepit, abandoned Pontiac Silverdome for $22 million and was recently forced to sell it for less than $600,000. And yet, now that the city finally has a good financial manager, who happens to be Jewish, they attack him with their bigotry.
And that’s why the people and the City of Pontiac won’t recover. They’re too mired in their own baseless hatred to let a good man do his job and help them. They will never lift themselves up. And now they won’t allow anyone else to do it either, especially because that “anyone else” happens to be a Jew.
