In the wake of the attack on a Hanukkah celebration at a Rabbi’s home in Monsey, New York, weekday morning CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto interviewed a local Jewish community leader named Steve Gold. When Sciutto asked what can be done to solve this going forward, Gold, the co-president of Jewish Federation and Foundation of Rockland County suggested censoring free speech on social media platforms.
"We need a lot of different rules and regulations to start happening. A lot of legislation to start happening" Gold proposed, before slamming Facebook for its free speech stances including what he called "fake" political ads and unmonitored Facebook groups.
Sciutto observed that "So it's in the statistics that attacks, anti-Semitic attacks in New York state, but also nationally, have increased in recent months and years" before asking Gold "Why? What do you blame this on?"
