“The medias [sic] obsession with Orthodox Jews is so twisted, that an article about a measles uptick in a Somalian community in Ohio, features 2 pictures of NY Orthodox Jews.”
The Washington Post has an article about a measles outbreak in Ohio. Of course, the publication tried to tie it to people hesitant about the COVID vaccine.
Any Legal Insurrection reader knows measles cases have increased ever since that wacko “scientist” claimed the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine caused autism. Leslie keeps us updated on anything related to viruses!
But the featured image.
Wait wait wait!
One of the photos in the article is also of a Jew in NYC in 2019.
The article by @bylenasun mentions a current outbreak among Somalians in Ohio and among mostly African Americans in Minnesota. Yet the photo of this story and within the article is from an Orthodox Jewish family. Att: @StopAntisemites @JeffBezos @AmericansAA @OJPAC @AgudahNews pic.twitter.com/WD4XeRxLQh

The story is about a measles outbreak in Columbus, OH, while also mentioning an outbreak in Minnesota in a similar community. Hint: Not the Jewish community:
Some of the cases occurred in Columbus’s large Somali community, the second-largest Somali population in the United States after the Minneapolis area, Roberts said. Parents have said they “intentionally delayed” giving their children the measles vaccine because of their fear of autism, she said, despite considerable research disproving any relationship between vaccines and autism. Those fears echoed similar concerns of parents in Minnesota’s Somali community during a 2017 measles outbreak that infected 75 children, mostly unvaccinated preschool kids.
Minnesota is also battling a new measles outbreak — 22 cases — as vaccine hesitancy around the MMR vaccine continues to be an issue, said Doug Schultz, spokesman for the Minnesota health department.
Officials are bracing for more cases in the coming weeks as families travel and gather indoors for the holidays. At least 29 of the Ohio children have been hospitalized, some so sick they required intensive care.
Most of the sickened children — 78 percent — are Black, 6 percent are Asian, 6 percent are White, and 4 percent are Hispanic, according to Columbus officials.
But not Jews..except for a 2019 outbreak. Yes, 2019…BEFORE the COVID outbreak and vaccine.
What. The. Heck.
You would miss the mention of Orthodox Jews in the article if you skimmed it. One line:
Overall, the word “Jewish” appears three times in the article, under the photos’ description and the 2019 outbreak.
The article mentions Jews once, but ⅔ photos are of Jews, one being featured as the cover image. The article mentions Somalis four times, and has no photos of them. pic.twitter.com/nLHydQxmOF

A @wapo story about vaccine hesitancy in an Ohio Somali community has ZERO photos of Somalis and TWO photos of Hasidic Jews from NY.
Either there’s a terrible shortage of appropriate stock photos, or WaPo has a disgusting Antisemitic agenda that deserves condemnation.

I was today years old when I realized the Minnesotan Somali, Alaskan, and Detroit Suburb communities dress EXACTLY like the Orthodox Hasidic community in NYC. Like, wow!

Not only is this borderline Neo-Nazi level incitement to blame Hasidic Jews for Ohio. But given they have a 96% Measles Vax rate, it was a lie when they were blamed in the first place https://t.co/6tk2t6wOEJ

Excellent propaganda piece! I hope you get lots more of those "journalism grants" from FTX, WaPo! https://t.co/Tik2nsrRUz

Holy hell. WaPo using a picture of a Jewish family in Brooklyn for an unrelated measles outbreak in Ohio. After NYT ran the swastika crossword puzzle.
Our media is garbage. Anti-Semitic garbage. https://t.co/LbIsgJ2VZg

The medias obsession with Orthodox Jews is so twisted, that an article about a measles uptick in a Somalian community in Ohio, features 2 pictures of NY Orthodox Jews.
People that haven’t read the article but see the featured picture and headline, assume it’s talking about Jews. https://t.co/7L4ftqr0Lu
