Well Well Well… Why was the mainstream media so quick to get this information out? Oh that’s right, they weren’t at all.
According to The New York Times, Investigators are examining links between the attackers in the Jersey City shooting and the Black Hebrew Israelite movement. The group has no connection with mainstream Judaism and is designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Officials were slow to name the Jersey City shooters but those with knowledge identified them as David Anderson and Francine Graham. Anderson was part of the Black Hebrew Israelite’s, a black nationalist, Antisemitic sect. They are very anti Jew and Anti Police.
According to journalist Andy Ngo “He had extensive anti-police and racist posts online.”
According to three sources, Anderson was a one-time follower of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, whose members believe they are descendants of the ancient Israelites and may adhere to both Christian and Judaic beliefs, and his social media pages include anti-police and anti-Jewish writings. Investigators are looking to see if it was Anderson himself who posted that material.
