Jewish Reporter Attacked and Called ‘Nazi’

An Orthodox Jewish reporter said he was attacked by an angry mob at a protest against coronavirus restrictions in Borough Park, Brooklyn on Wednesday.

The reporter, Jacob Kornbluh, said protesters yelled that he was a “Nazi” and “Hitler” as they chased after him during a second night of unrest over government attempts to stop the surging cases of COVID-19 across Brooklyn.


Kornbluh blamed the attack on Heshy Tischler, an agitator and aspiring politician who has organized the largely Orthodox protests over the last two nights.

“I was just brutally assaulted, hit in the head, and kicked at by an angry crowd of hundreds of community members of the Boro Park protest — while yelling at me “Nazi” and “Hitler” —after Heshy Tischler recognized me and ordered the crowd to chase me down the street,” Kornbluh tweeted.

Tischler, who is running for City Council, was filmed pinning Kornbluh against a wall as he shouted, “You are a moser!” meaning snitch.

Kornbluh said he was saved by police and several community members.

The night before, Tichler was filmed referring to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife Chirlane McCray as “retard woman.”

On the same night, a group of protesters in the area chased down and assaulted freelance photographer Bruce Schaff, who is Jewish, as he tried to capture the scene. A second man, Berish Getz, 34, a Borough Park resident, was also beaten during that protest.

“Out of all the protests I’ve been to I’ve never seen this level of violence from protesters toward members of the press, photographers, or anyone for that matter,” Schaff told The Post after the Tuesday night attack.

The anger stems from Governor Andrew Cuomo-mandated restrictions imposed on area synagogues, schools, and non-essential businesses due to a coronavirus spike sweeping through a large chunk of Brooklyn and patches of Queens around Forest Hills and Far Rockaway.

    Again. The German word NAZI translates as democrat. No Jew except George soros would associate with NAZI’s.

    Tischler was way out of line. He’s not going to get any votes attacking reporters. That being said, Jacob Kornbluh is getting just what he deserves being chased down the road an attacked for being a communist writer for De Blasio! I don’t see any videos of the ‘attack’, but at least Tischler has enough common sense to turn himself in for being so stupid as to let a communist ‘push his buttons’! He probably won’t get out of jail until after the election. If you want to run for office, people, you have to have enough self control not be triggered into doing something so stupid as incite violence! And on a know commie reporter too! Common Trumpers, wake up and stop acting like BLM when you are out there! You are NOT helping Trump by acting like communists yourselves! POTUS USES Constitutional Law to fight these sick people. FREEDOM OF THE PRESS is constitutional law, and Tischler broke that when he attacked this guy! Do NOT give the opposition a chance to hurt our campaign by giving the commies an excuse to arrest you!
    That is NOT a WINNING POLICY! TRUMP2020!

    I do not know how many attacked Mr. Jacob Kornbluh, but I am certain it was more than one that attacked Mr. Kornbluh.
    All I can say is that the attackers are COWARDS, as they have not served this country by being in the Military, and they do not have the courage to have a one on one altercation. And these type of people that come in a group to attack one person, regardless of what city or state, they are COWARDS.
    The men who served with me under my command were MEN, not cowards.
    Thank you to Mr. Jacob Kornbluh for having the courage to report what is going on, and thank you to the police officers who came to the rescue of Mr. Kornbluh.
    Those who attacked are the South-end of Jackasses heading North, and COWARDS!
