The idea that someone fired a round through the window of Evansville's Jewish temple should be unnerving enough, but Rabbi Gary Mazo said the exact location of where the apparent vandal chose to express their hatred makes it worse.Trump's been dog-whistling to the sort of clowns that would do something like that. They think he's their guy. They're not yelling "heil Trump" for nothing.
"Someone had to walk into a children's playground, then look into a classroom and then fire some sort of weapon. It was to inflict damage, but I think more importantly, (the person) tried to inflict fear," he said. "We're in this climate now where acts of hate are happening everywhere."
Mazo said the temple's office manager discovered the damage on Monday afternoon and told him about it on Tuesday morning, which is when it was reported to police. Both the Evansville Police Department and the FBI are investigating the incident.
If Trump wanted to tamp this shit down, he could order the DoJ to aggressively investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of antisemitic acts on hate crime charges. But given that his own AG thinks that hate crimes are not something that are worthy of prosecution, good luck with that.
