Knockout Game An Anti-Semitic Hate Crime Against Jews By ‘Black Mobs’?

Knockout Game An Anti-Semitic Hate Crime Against Jews By 'Black Mobs'?

The Knockout game is being investigated by the NYPD as potential hate crimes against Jews by black mobs.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Knockout game went viral when videos showed violent organized attacks by some black youths.

In the past, social media has been used to organize flash mobs where people will turn up in a public place and do some sort of organized event, usually a dance or a song. This idea evolved into a violent variant called bash mobs, where where a coordinated crowd runs through the streets to commit a string of thefts, crimes, assaults, and property damage, only to disappear quickly.

The Knockout game seems to be the ultimate culmination of this trend toward violence, with a group of people picking out a person at random and attempting to knock the unsuspecting person unconscious with one punch. Unfortunately, many reports are claiming “black mobs” are largely responsible, with some claiming this is a “part of a pattern of hundreds of examples of black mob violence documented in more than 80 cities, as revealed in “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.”

Worse, allegedly the Knockout game has evolved into an anti-Semitic “knock out the Jew” game, according to Brooklyn rabbi Yaacov Behrman. Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind agrees, saying:

“They’re playing a game: ‘knockout.’ ‘Knock out the Jew,’ maybe. And they’re going around the neighborhood punching Jews.”

There have also been reports of Nazi-like swastikas graffiti’d in the areas where the crimes took place. The Crown Heights area also has a long history as being a largely Orthodox Jewish and African American community. But because of the large number of people of the Jewish faith involved, citizens are calling for an investigation by the Hate Crimes Task Force.

One 27-year-old New Yorker named Ike says the Knockout game has been around for a long time and isn’t necessarily anti-Semitic:

“I remember it from when I was 11, and I’ve seen white kids do it, black kids, Spanish kids. A friend of mine was the victim of it years ago. He was walking in Washington Heights and a group of kids just came up to him and one punched him in the face and ran off. They broke bones in his face. I’m sure there are some sick people who are like ‘let’s knock out the first Jewish person we see [walking] alone. But they’re also like “let’s knock out the first person we see alone, whoever they are. It’s not only a rise in anti-semitism…it’s a rise in senseless violence period.”

Do you think the Knockout game should be considered a hate crime?

    If they are specifically seeking out Jewish people then YES it SHOULD be considered a hate crime. Of course!

  2. Jack Haynes

    Am I the only one who thinks this is funny? As a person of lighter pigment, I think black Nazis are awesome!
    The Jews have been "victims" since the dawn of time, money can't buy you integrity Mr. Goldstein.

    hey trayvon got no justice,,,,,,,its all but forgotten, hopefully more people get punched in the face!! no justice? no peace!

  5. Daniel Freeman

    Yes, because the answer to a lapse in justice is to hurt and kill more innocent people. Genius.

  6. Daniel Freeman

    No, there are other pathetic hate-mongers like yourself out there. Why don't you go put on a White Sheet and Armband and join them? You can pretend you actually matter for two seconds…just be quiet about it, the rest of us would happily be rid of you scum.

  7. Troy Montana

    If the reason for punching them is due to the color of skin yes thats racially motivated. Does anyone have commonsense? And this game has been around for a long time there blacks didnt create it,there is also a "friendlier" variation called "slap cam"..were you video tape someone slapping an unsuspecting friend in the face..you get extra points if you have soap,whip cream etc in your hand but its supposed to be humor not violent. All very juvenile to me.

  8. Robert Anderson

    your a morrrrooooonnn… Travon was a punk thug, you don't know what justice is, you want revenge for stupid people doing stupid things who hide behind race !

  9. Daniel Freeman

    Robert Anderson Hey, I wasn't backing Trayvon, I was just saying what you are, that revenge against innocents isn't any kind of justice…so don't snap at me, sir.

    Oh, when it happens to Jews, suddenly its relevant? It's feral Negroes attacking anyone who is not White. Think for a minute, of all the great civilizations of history, how many were Black? They are inferior. the Jew supports them. Poetic justice if they get a beat down.

  11. Troy Montana

    Scott Keith How is that an excuse. It's called logic not every crime is a hate crime. Each and every criminal action should be judged on its merits. Are you a complete moron or just trolling?

  12. Terry Dolan

    Where is obama commenting on this issue ? If this was white kids doing this to black folks, he would be wanting to have a beer at the white house.

  13. Bruce Thompson

    All hate crime laws should be repealed, and equal justice under law reinstated as the ideal. Assault is assault is assault, and there should be no special snowflakes on either side of the law.

    AMERICA'S NEW GAME "BLACK BEAR DOWN" or "BBD"!

    KKK's "BLACK BEAR DOWN"

    "BBD" is a new and exciting GAME that bored KKK MEMBERS are now playing all across AMERICA!

    Totally bored KLAN MEMBERS with HIGH-POWERED RIFLES with NIGHT-VISION SCOPES are now lurking around in the dark outside of PUBIC HOUSING UNITS, PUBLIC SCHOOLS, CORNER CONVENIENCE STORES and FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS waiting for BLACK BEARS as they exist the BUILDINGS!

    The OBJECTIVE of BLACK BEAR DOWN is DEFINITELY not to KILL anyone, its just to see how many BLACK BEARS you can get WIGGLING AROUND on the GROUND!

    The KKK calls them "WING SHOTS"!

    The KKK is under the IMPRESSION that after a few totally innocent BLACK BEARS geaux down, PRESIDENT OBAMA, the DEPARTMENT of RACIAL INJUSTICE, the LILY WHITE LYING LIBERLA MEDIA and the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW SINNERS will begin to STAND UP and SPEAK OUT about RACIAL HATE CRIMES!

    … sadly we are just going to have to see what happens.

    … but don't say that the fatuous1 has spent MILLIONS of MAN HOURS WARNING the POWERS TO BE of IMPENDING RACIAL CHAOS!

    So, let the "BLOODLETTING" begin, so as, ole NANCY PELOSI would say, "We can all see how all this RACE TARGETING CRAP is gonna turn out!"

    My GUESS is that things are about to get really "BLOODY"!

    … and I am gonna be RUNNING AROUND in CIRCLES SCREAMING and YELLING like RANDY TRAVIS SINGING the SAD SONG, "I TOLD YOU SO"!

    So when groups of Jews go around beating black people with wooden boards with nails in them or metal pipes, pulling black kids off of their bikes and punching them so bad they are hospitalized with shattered eye sockets and worse, that's called "Shomrim" and it's okay, right? Where are all of these people when the "shomrim" is out beating and spitting at 7 year old girls?
