Alabama politician threatened by gun-waving Jew over her refusal to fund Holocaust memorial


Times of Israel

A city councilwoman in Birmingham, Alabama, told police that a gun-wielding Jewish man threatened to harm her for opposing city funding of a Holocaust memorial.

In a police complaint filed July 12, Sheila Tyson said a car pulled up to her as she was leaving the Birmingham Zoo on the afternoon of July 9 and the driver said, “[Expletive], I will blow your [expletive] brains out for talking about my Jewish ancestors,” the Alabama Media Group reported Monday.

According to the complaint, Tyson “took off” in her car after the man picked up a handgun and started leaning over to the window. Tyson also shared threatening emails she had received and said she had received threatening phone calls.

In June, Tyson criticized the city’s plans to spend $45,500 to assist in the construction of a privately funded Holocaust memorial park that would be adjacent to a 9/11 memorial.

The memorial, spearheaded by the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center, will cost approximately $500,000 in total.

According to the Alabama Media Group, Tyson was angry that the city was allocating funds for the memorial after it had turned down her request for funding to restore a historic African-American cemetery in disrepair. Shadow Lawn Cemetery, which dates back to the 1930s, is the burial site for one of first lady Michelle Obama’s great-great-grandfathers, according to the publication.

“Dead is dead,” Tyson said in June, adding, “It is for dead people. Aren’t the people they are memorializing [at the Holocaust memorial] deceased?”

Tyson later said her statements about the Holocaust memorial had been mischaracterized, writing on Facebook, “My point, however, remains the same: how and why do we choose whom we memorialize, Shadow Lawn Memorial or the Holocaust Memorial? I support both.”

“For the record, I will be clear: I support the use of public funds for the Holocaust memorial. However, I will only vote to allocate these funds when we are provided with clear guidance about the law pertaining to funding memorials.”

    Under Zionism Rule, you take down the crosses and put in its place, Jewish shrines.
    We get what we fight and die for and crosses is not one of our priorities, .

    God’s self-chosen ones are dangerous people. They are fanatics.

    Conveniently this article does not mention that Sheila Tyson is black and was speaking about a historical cemetery for black Americans. She was doing what was right, regardless of her colour, trying to save something of historical import.

    Let us not even begin to discuss the subtle intentional connection of Hollowcaustianity and the sacred 9/11 factors! (Or Jews wanting us to pay for our own indoctrination!)

    Sheila Tyson was standing up for “her own people” (the AMERICAN people) and THEIR memorial in her town, doing her job. I just find it interesting that the Times failed to mention her colour because it does matter in this story. A lot.

    We should be tired of race being so conveniently omitted from media when it is a pertinent factor ~ although, had she been white, the threats might have been different. She might not have been interested in protecting a memorial dedicated primarily to black people…. but that is moot.

    Regardless of colour, it is an American memorial, NOT a Jewish one. That was her crime.

    And we know how surly members of the Tribe get when someone even thinks differently from them … which is, inevitably about almost everything….

    Richard is this God talking or Satan talking ??
    “You are from your father The Devil, and the desire of your father you are willing to do; from the beginning he has been murdering men and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him; whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from what is his, because he is of falsehood and is also its father.”
    John 8:44
