News contributor and former civil rights attorney Leo Terrell expresses his frustration over the lack of action from the Department of Justice and FBI in response to the increasing attacks on Jewish Americans. Leo emphasizes that there is a disproportionate number of hate crimes against Jewish Americans, and criticizes Joe Biden for prioritizing progressive left-wing politics over protecting this community. He points out that the lack of assertive action from the federal government emboldens individuals to attack Jewish American citizens, particularly on college campuses.
Leo questions the absence of prosecutors and district attorneys in prosecuting these crimes and highlights a recent incident involving a 69-year-old Jewish man who died during a confrontation at a pro-Palestinian rally in Oaks, California. The county sheriff acknowledges conflicting information and confirms the need for witnesses to provide video evidence. While Leo acknowledges the rise in anti-Semitic attacks, he criticizes the inadequate response from President Biden, the Department of Justice, Attorney General Garland, and FBI Director Christopher Ray. Leo contends that if this were any other racial or religious group, there would be a more robust response from authorities.
He further criticizes the vague and insufficient information shared during a recent press conference and suggests that the lack of significant action against Jewish hate crimes signals a green light for perpetrators. Despite ongoing warnings and incidents across the country, Leo believes that the poor response from federal, state, and local authorities will contribute to the continuation of these attacks..
