Default The GSG: The Jews Are No Good @#$&)*%!!

Thinking about the GSG today. For the sake of argument let's assume that Stride's killer wrote it and that he had a particular axe to grind against the Jews having been interrupted by the B.S. man and having been seen by Lawende and for other unknown reasons. Now since he took the time to write it and assumed some risk doing so even if small wouldn't you think that the message would be a lot more venomous and hateful especially if fueled by adrenaline from his recent kill? Now it is possible that in his mind it was incredibly nasty and insulting but to me it sounds like he was almost trying to be politically correct. Does anybody else see an inconsistency here?

Because he didn't want to make it too obvious it was a gentile trying to shift blame on the Jews. Some clueless police almost fell for it but yet again abberline set them straight.

Hello Abby,

How do we know it wasn't a Jew who wrote it?

Hi All,

Bear in mind that the GSG started life as the BSG.

Regards,

Simon

Are you sure that wasn't just due to confusion in early reports, perhaps before it was commonly known that two murders had been perpetrated?

Because I think it unlikely a Jew would disparage another Jew either with the graffiti nor the shout of lipski.

Because he was smart.

And was boots on the ground.

Except that we don't know for sure whether it was actually Lipski that was shouted. And it is not improbable that a Jew might have written the GSG to put the police on the wrong trail.

As for Abberline, I have no doubt that he was quite smart and competent and yes he was there at the time but unless he himself wrote it he would only be guessing as to its meaning.

Perhaps Jack the Ripper was C of E who appreciated Michael Friedlander and read Baruch Spinoza.
If he knew of Kate's escapade as "nothing",the GSG takes on a different meaning.
