NEW YORK – State Attorney General Letitia James called a video posted on Facebook by the Rockland County Republican Party “deeply disturbing.” She wants the “anti-Semitic” movie to be “removed and condemned immediately” by the GOP.
See the video HERE. (Video has been taken down.)
“To clearly state that members of the Jewish community are a threat to families and our safety and that they must be stopped is despicable and completely unacceptable,” James said. “Attacking those who are different than we are only breeds hate and makes us weaker. We must all stand together to denounce this hateful video.”
Rockland GOP Chairman Lawrence Garvey said while he appreciates James’ concern over the video, “I hope she will take a closer look at the real problems of overdevelopment and corruption that are plaguing our county.”
Garvey said, “For those not living in Rockland, it is harder to see the real and unique problems that exist here. They do not live with the burden that comes with overdevelopment and the risk it is to our first responders.”
He said this is not a religious issue nor it is a Republican or Democrat issue. “It is a matter of right and wrong,” Garvey said. “It is about the greed of a handful of elected officials who wish to yield their power over an entire county. Much like with the situation facing the East Ramapo School District, if the facts are not brought to the forefront, nothing gets done and our residents and children suffer.”
