Default Mainstream media ignores death of Jewish journalist who died from alleged hate crime

Anyone truly surprised?

Accordin' to libs and the msm, a hate crime is only if it's committed against blacks. They sure as fuq aren't gonna cover it if it's against a Jew. Doesn't fit their bias.

Louis Farrakhan just called 'em "termites."

Mainstream media ignores death of Jewish journalist who died from alleged hate crime in New Jersey

An alleged hate crime has killed a long-time New Jersey photojournalist and EMT who was described as a gentle soul who went out of his way to help others.

But don’t expect to see his story across headlines everywhere.

What happened?

Wolkowitz, 56, died Thursday, nearly six months after a vicious attack left him on life support for several months. The attack happened May 1 when Wolkowitz was talking near his Freehold Township apartment complex, according to published reports.

Police believe Jamil S. Hubbard, 26, of Sayreville, allegedly beat Wolkowitz, dragged him into a parking lot and ran over him with his Chevy Malibu. Hubbard then allegedly stole Wolkoowitz’s money and his Kia Forte. Hubbard was arrested the same day.


“(Hubbard) explained that he chose him because he was a white man,” prosecutor Keri-Leigh Schaefer said during a court hearing.

The prosecutor also said Hubbard admitted he had never met or seen the victim before, and wanted to kill him because of his race, the Ashbury Park Press reported. The news outlet published Wolkowitz’s work over the years.

“All the victim did was walk home,” Schaefer said. “That could have been anyone.”

A tweet by Asbury Park Patch shows Wolkowitz (left) in a photo on a GoFundMe page that was set up for his expenses.

Hubbard was initially charged with with attempted murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and bias intimidation. A grand jury later added armed robbery, eluding and theft, according to reports.

Anything else about him?

A GoFundMe page initially set up to help with Wolkowitz’s medical expenses will now go toward his funeral costs, according to published reports.

A message on the page, written before his death, states:

“Jerry is a reporter, a writer, a first aid volunteer, a dedicated worker, a wonderful friend, and a devoted family man with a loving fiance. Jerry loves cats and captures many special pictures of his precious Misu. Jerry spent his life dedicated to helping others and has touched so many lives as a volunteer for the Freehold First Aid Squad, a reporter for the Asbury Park Press and The News Transcript, a driver for SAS Ambulance, and so much more. He is kind-hearted and highly devoted to his family and friends.

The post also said he “has a great sense of humor, and is always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.”

The page has raised more than $16,000 and donations were still flowing in early Sunday afternoon.

The Ashbury Park Press wrote that Wolkowitz was a son of Holocaust survivors. He worked as a photojournalist, independent photographer, EMT and ambulance supervisor and, most recently, as supervisor at Transcom in Jersey City. He also was a life member of the Freehold First Aid and Rescue Squad.

“It’s an absolute tragedy when such a vibrant life ends under such senseless circumstances,” Hollis R. Towns, Press executive editor and vice president for news and Northeast regional editor for the USA Today Network, stated in the Ashbury Park Press.

Wolkowitz also enjoyed mentoring younger medics, who called him an “innocent soul.”

“It’s so profoundly heartbreaking that this has happened,” Noel Olivarius, chaplain of the Freehold First Aid and Rescue Squad, told the Ashbury Park Press. “Jerry was nothing but kindness and goodness. His family has endured more than anyone.”

What a sad story. And yes, the MSM will never mention this as it does not fit the narrative.

But I have to ask, has the local DA pursued hate crime charges against the animal that did this? My guess would be no because the victim was not in a "protected" class. And that is exactly what is wrong with the hate crime laws. They only apply one way.

Let's do a little separating of facts from fiction. The "Left" does care about all forms of hate crimes against all people. The Southern Poverty Law Center is the preeminent organization in tracking hate crimes and it reports on all hate crimes that it becomes aware of from the FBI and other sources.

This attack, according to the story, was based upon race and not based upon religion. The attacker stated he selected Wolkowitz as the victim because Wolkowitz was white and not because he was Jewish.

Victims of race related hate crimes are overwhelmingly black. In 2013 there were 2,872 race related hate crimes reported to the FBI. Of those 66.4 percent (1,907) were motivated by anti-black or African-American bias, and 21.4 percent (615) stemmed from anti-white bias. When adjusted on a per capita basis a black person is over 12-times more likely to be the victim of a racially based hate crime.

In news reporting the fact that blacks are victims of race based hate crimes at over 12-times the rate when compared to whites would mean that coverage of anti-white hate crimes would be reported less than 1/12th as many times when compared to anti-black race crimes if all race related hate crimes were reported. They're not all reported.

Even then the story of the attack on Wolkowitz was carried by some mainstream media sources. ABC covered the story and you can't get more mainstream than ABC. The Blaze also covered this story.

The coverage of a hate crime against a white person is only notable from a news standpoint because these attacks relatively rare are when compared to racist attacks against blacks and other racial minorities.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Do you have proof that racist attacks by whites on blacks is a more common occurrence than that of black on white or did you just pull that out of your rear do defend your narrative. If it is the case, can you please post your evidence?

How do you define "mainstream media"?

US News and World Report? - https://www.usnews.com/news/best-sta...-after-beating

New York Daily News? - Police: EMT, photojournalist dies months after beating - NY Daily News

NJ.com (the largest newspaper site in New Jersey)? - https://www.nj.com/ocean/index.ssf/2..._car_dies.html

Newsweek? - https://www.newsweek.com/son-holocau...ssault-1177159

CNN? - https://twitter.com/jaketapper/statu...7Ctwgr%5Etweet

As long as those specific crimes fit their left wing narrative.

The SPLC is a hyperpartisan scam to raise money for its leaders by fear mongering.

Please take the time to review the FBI hate crime statistics before making stupid statements related to hate crimes.

You're the one that made the assertion, show your evidence instead of throwing around idiotic insults. It should not be my duty to look up evidence to back your claims.
