Antisemitic acts continue in the USA

More bad news in Oregon, as the Portland Holocaust Memorial was vandalized:
The Oregon Holocaust Memorial in Portland was found spray-painted with antisemitic hate symbols on Sunday.

Written in white were two swastikas and "1488," a number popular among neo-Nazis and other white supremacists. The symbols have been removed, and the Portland Police Bureau said on Monday that it is investigating the vandalism, which also included anti-Semitic tagging on street signs and concrete barriers near the park.

To use Nazi symbols to deface a memorial dedicated to the millions who were murdered during the Holocaust recapitulates the hatred that drove the original genocide," Judy Margles, director of the Oregon Jewish Museum, told KOIN 6 News. "It is an act of symbolic violence against the very idea that inspired the memorial."

Portland's Mayor Ted Wheeler said "the damage to the Oregon Holocaust Memorial is heartbreaking, and it's particularly painful that it happened during Jewish American Heritage Month. I denounce hate crimes, antisemitism and white supremacy."
Considering his refusal to ensure law will be enforced in the city whenever Antifa and BLM have been doing their rioting and devastation, I think he should just resign already, because this terrible act was an extension of the chaos those anarchists have been causing throughout Portland. I get a bad feeling the local police won't run a convincing investigation either.

And over in Maryland, there was an antisemitic murder in Baltimore:
The family of an Israeli man gunned down in Baltimore earlier this week poured scorn Wednesday on a working theory that he died in a botched robbery and that rather, he was the victim of a targeted attack because he was Jewish.

Ephraim Gordon, 31, was killed on the doorsteps of his cousin's home in the northwestern section of the city, while visiting for a family wedding.

His sister, Ella Gordon, told reporters that the details of the case point to it not being a random crime.

"This was an act of terrorism, my brother didn't just die," she said. "There were no signs of violence, and they didn't take money. It was not a robbery that went wrong, but murder due to antisemitism," Gordon said, noting that her brother was wearing a kippah and sported a beard, outward signs that he was a religious Jew.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison told FOX45 that the motive appeared to be an attempted robbery that turned fatal.
If no money was stolen from him, that certainly gives a clue to what drove the crime. And it also points to another sad situation of where the USA is going.
