I'd guess that's an opinion held by a large number of people in most of the country and, from my visits to "THE City" in the past, I'd say it was a self indictment because I have met fewer than a handful of people from New York City who didn't complain at how many assholes there were in the place. If that's the criterion, then NYC must be massively antisemitic. Which, of course, would make it a highly saturated locus of assholism.
Update: Look, Bunky, it's not that hard. There's a difference between knowing something and guessing something. If you've got evidence then that will tell you what happened, if you just go with a guess you're bound to guess what you want.
It's obvious you want it to feed your pet hatred. You want that so much you aren't willing to wait to see if that's what happened. You're just like Trump and the other Muslim haters, you just hate Christians instead.
You've got a lot more in common than you'd ever want to know.
All I've said is that guessing on the basis of no information is as bad as what they do at CNN when something like Balloon Boy comes up.
I'm sure Duncan Black never expected to produce the intellectual equivalent of Rick Sanchez when he started Baby Blue.
