Haha. The media won’t tell you that the Swastika lover is nonwhite. I’ve seen many, many Mexicans lighter in skin tone and more European in features than this guy.
His motivation was not hate, but rather the jobs stolen from Americans by Mexicans. That’s not hate, that’s economics.
In all seriousness, if I drew a cartoon penis on a bathroom wall and mockingly wrote “suck me,” would that be a hate crime against homosexuals?
The name Pasquale is a southern Italian name. For purposes of this post, Pasquale should not be considered white because if he is, his punishment will be all that much greater.
The most Pasquale should be charged with is misdemeanor vandalism. But as you read the story, realize that in communist Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New York, the entire resources of the NYPD were available to stop dangerous Pasquale and his Magic Marker.
A 65-year-old Brooklyn man has been arrested for allegedly scrawling symbols of hate, including swastikas and the acronym KKK, in bathrooms at Penn Station over the last month.
Pasquale Vargas faces eight counts of criminal mischief as a hate crime, which is a felony, Gov. Cuomo announced Monday.
According to the governor, MTA police had been conducting surveillance in connection with an ongoing investigation into hate-crime graffiti in men’s bathrooms in the transit hub when they arrested Vargas on suspicious on vandalizing one of the stalls.
Vargas allegedly admitted he was responsible for the graffiti, saying he wrote it “because Mexicans take jobs from Americans.”
Police believe he is responsible for the pattern of desecration that dates back to Feb. 18.
MTA Chief of Police Own Monaghan said “no one should think they can get away with trying to intimidate the public in this way.”
“This arrest sends a clear message that all hate crimes will be thoroughly investigated, and we will prosecute those found responsible for perpetrating these reprehensible actions,” Cuomo added. “We have zero tolerance for these acts of bigotry, which stand in direct contrast to the values that we New Yorkers represent.”
Vargas’ arrest comes amid a dramatic uptick in hate crimes in the city and across the nation in the aftermath of the presidential election. In New York City, anti-Semitic hate crimes are up 94 percent since February 2016, with 17 of the 24 instances taking place since the start of 2017.
Our perp, clearly the most dangerous man in America, should take a DNA test to establish that he’s mixed race and use that in his defense.
The swastika was just his way of expressing his interest in the Hindu religion. Furthermore, the idea that the letters KKK stand for hate is a false one, easily proved by putting David Duke on the stand to testify for Pasquale.
Jew York City is utterly ridiculous. I feel sorry for Pasquale even if he is not exactly an ideal specimen of European racial purity.
One more thing. Isn’t drawing a swastika political speech protected by the First Amendment, just like flag burning is also protected?
