Rep Svarzbein has been targeted by some dumbass anti-Semite out there. Svarzbein's galley was targeted for graffiti and there was some hateful language used.
If the assailant knew he was a Jew, then he knew he was a city rep too. This isn't something that should be taken lightly and is an attack on a public official.
It's a hate crime plain and simple.
I hope it's not political. Because there is no room for that in political discourse. I have my disagreements with Rep Svarzbein and many elected officials in town but this kind of hatefulness has no place in politics.
This is something that should offend us all.
Elected officials all have their haters. It's part of the job. I have several of my own. It's hard enough to try to do your job without some hateful assholes out there with nothing better to do that fuck with you.
I know, I have a couple of them myself right now like Martin Paredes and Barbara Carrasco.
But they basically just make me laugh and motivate me.
The crap this person is putting Svarzbein through is intolerable in a community as welcoming as ours.
I hope this is given the attention it's due. It's a hate crime and it's against a public official.
