Bill de Blasio: Anti-Semitism is just a ‘right-wing movement’

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said anti-Semitism is something that comes from "the right-wing movement" and said he does not believe anti-Semitism is a problem on the Left.

"I think the ideological movement that is anti-Semitic is the right-wing movement," de Blasio said at a press conference Tuesday, according to the New York Post. He disagreed when a reporter asked about rising anti-Semitism "on the Left in the [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions] movement and around the world."

"I want to be very, very clear, the violent threat, the threat that is ideological is very much from the Right," the 2020 presidential candidate said.

“I don’t agree with the mayor,” said Chaim Deutsch, a Brooklyn Democrat. "I have not seen any white supremacists coming in here committing these hate crimes."

New York City has seen a 90% increase in anti-Semitic hate crimes this year, with hate crimes against all minority groups also up 64%. Of the 184 hate incidents, 110 were against Jewish people.

"A simple look at where anti-Semitic hate crimes have occurred just disproves this — unless you count central Brooklyn as the home of a vast right-wing conspiracy,” Staten Island's Republican Joe Borelli said. "Bill de Blasio regularly says stupid things, but this is literally the stupidest effing thing he’s ever said."
