At least five people were stabbed in an attack on a New York rabbi’s home on Saturday night, in an attack that was intended to target members of the Jewish community.
All five victims were taken to area hospitals to receive medical treatment. It seems as of Sunday night that they will survive the injuries they suffered.
Local authorities state that a suspected attacker entered the rabbi’s home, in Monsey, New York, a suburb of New York City in Rockland county, with a knife on Saturday night. The attack occurred on the seventh day of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.
An area man who was present in the rabbi’s home recounted that he was praying for his life during the attack. He recounted the suspect withdrawing a large knife, attacking those present in the house as soon as he got in the front door.
A suspect was arrested by police in Harlem, New York City, shortly after the attack. He had apparently escaped from the scene with the aid of a waiting getaway car. Reports indicate the suspect is an African-American male who utilized a machete in the vicious attack.
Video from the scene revealed a heavy police presence.

The attack took place at the home of Rabbi Chaim Leib Rottenberg of the orthodox Hasidic sect.
New York Attorney General Letitia James released a statement on Twitter condemning anti-Semitic hate and the attack.
Some Jews in the New York metro area have spoken with concern of anti-Semitic sentiment and violent acts in recent months and weeks. A similar attack took place at a Jersey City Jewish grocery store earlier this month. Individuals associated with the Black Hebrew Israelites, a fringe black nationalist organization, targeted Jewish customers of the business. The anti-Semitic terrorists killed five people in that attack.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
