Top 10 Anti-Semitic Rants of 2010

posted by Brad Hirschfield

The Simon Wiesenthal Center has released its list of 2010’s “Top 10 Anti-Semitic Slurs“. Aside from wondering whether it should be called a “top 10″ or a “bottom 10″ list, I find the list, or really the spin used by those who published it, to be disturbing.
Despite claims by both the center’s website, and by its Dean, Rabbi Marvin Hier, that this list represents some new level of threat, the fear-mongering is not borne out by the list itself. And once again, it’s hard not to feel that this is another example of people who have nothing but a hammer seeing a world full of nails.
Don’t get me wrong, there is anti-Semitism in the world and it should be fought wherever it exists. And just as we ought never to make less of it than it is, neither should we make more of it than it is. I fear that is exactly what the Wiesenthal Center list does, and in the process, it misses some very valuable information about how best to combat anti-Semitism expressed by cultural influentials.
In a piece published by the L.A. Times, Rabbi Hier suggests that “When anti-Semitism moves from the back alleys into the D.C. press corps and Hollywood, it’s time for all of us to take note”. No doubt. But should we not also take note of the fact that in each of the cases to which he refers, the offender in question was not only publicly lambasted from all sides, but in virtually each case, lost their jobs!
In other words, the issue here is not rising or deepening anti-Semitism, its expanding free speech and even more rapidly expanding access to that which is said. While there is plenty of evidence in the list that some people in positions of power and influence harbor hostility to Jews and do so base on absurd stereotypes, a quick follow up as to what happened to those who shared their views indicates that there is less room than ever for such public hateful utterances.
If anything, this list should give us cause to celebrate that while the problem still persists, anti-Semites are easier to smoke out than ever, and that when they share their hateful ideas, they are more likely than ever to pay a step cost for sharing those hateful ideas.
Vigilance in the face of anti-Semitism is always appropriate, but the ‘boy who cries wolf’, even if unintentionally so, is hardly a useful watchman over the innocent flock which anti-Semites would attack.

    Samuel zell who is jewish, owns the la times…dc press is owned by a Jew…and everyone who is not ignorant knows Hollywood is owned and controlled by Jews….please someone explain to me why it is wrong to point out these facts….

    Because it is boring and irrelevant, just as it would be boring and irrelevant to point out, every time you talk about the US government, that the president, the vice-president, and the speaker of the House are all Christians.

  • romanscapegoat

    if Jesus was the son of god and the jews killed him..doesn’t it make sense that Lucifer rewarded the jews for killing their messiah…why is it wrong to question government or religions….

    MARIAN – You can not reason with the GOAT who has a dysfunctional CPU. A logical discussion cannot be carried on with a certifiable paranoid, schizophrenic who has a history of multiple psychiatric hospitalizations. His monomanical anti-Semitic delusional rants is basically: “Jews control Hollywood, the entertainment industry, the information industry, the world’s financial industry, the killer of Jesus, and they are in league with the Devil.” Go argue, and debate with an imbecile. You would have a more receptive opponent if you tried to debate a stone wall. Save your breath. If, by chance, you search the prior posts of Rabbi Brad, you will find the same Goat vomitus, which incidently he offers, admittedly, under the alias of “Yobadself.” The GOAT, who is an asocial recluse, devoid of friends, a family who shuns him, a high school dropout, unemployed, lives on SSD and has Medicaid, refuses to continue his anti-psychotic meds, shuns out-patient therapy, and has a vendetta vs Jewish psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers in their attempt in court remanded therapeutic intervention. In his derailed thinking, he erroniously equates all his past encounters with treatment teams as being Jews. You can borrow a term from some of the Christian fundamentalists when you encounter a despicable coelenterate: ” I will pray for you.” Of course it is an empty gesture, but you keep your equanimity, and avoid being pulled down into the mud with this cur.

    “anti-someone who doesn’t give a jew control over ones self, amite” are easily smoked out when almost every-ones boss in America is Jewish…why are Jews so offended by statements that questions a Jews actions…Jews didn’t just happen by coincidence, take over all major banks and corporations in America…Jews didn’t just happen by coincidence,own Hollywood and all major media outlets and all polls in America…Jews didn’t just happen by coincidence, control everything on TV and at the movies, that program Americans in a false controlled reality…NO!!! the Jews made up a word called ANTISEMETITE….to fool the programmed robots to believe the Jews are victims of hate and racism… a smoke screen, while the Jews take over and own all highest position of power of the world….thus sayeth the lord…

    Ladies and gentlemen of this distinguished jury – Res Ipsa Loquitor. The “goat” has grunted his last admission of self induced psychotic delusional gastrointestinal puke. The poor demented fool actually stayed up to the wee hours of the morning to admit his hog-wash. If it wasn’t for the fact that he is demented – he would be sentenced to a good old Koranic public lashing. Decapitation is out of the question, because it would be a major biomedical undertaking to distinguish a confluence of cerebral neuronal mass either cephalad or caudad. Pardon my adolescent humor but the goat doesn’t know his “ass from his elbow,” it has been reported that he rolls up his sleeves when he is in the process of relieving himself.

    gil…prove me wrong instead of pleasing yourself, by reading your own fancy talk…that really has no substance or purpose but to only amuse yourself…what would psychology call that…sounds like delusions of grandeur

  • Gil

    GOAT – TO YOUR FRIENDS NO EXPLANATION IS NECESSARY, TO YOUR ENEMIES NO EXPLANATION SUFFICES. YOUR SELF IMPOSED PARANOID DELUSIONAL SYSTEM IS AIR-TIGHT LOCKED [IDEA FIXE] – AND NO RATIONAL THERAPEUTIC INTERVENTION CAN SAVE YOU FROM YOUR LAME PSYCHOTIC VERBIGERATIONS, AND BLOVIATIONS. YOU ARE AN IRRITANT THAT NO MERE SCRATCHING CAN REMOVE. NO ANTIHISTAMINE FOR THE BLOGGERS – BUT PERHAPS AN ANTIPSYCHOTIC FOR YOU. BUT, BETTER YET, A QUICK REFERRAL TO THE LOCAL ASPCA FOR YOU. YOU ARE A SHOE-IN NOT TO BE ADOPTED – AND YOU KNOW THE OTHER ALTERNATIVE LEFT. AND NO, SINCE YOU ARE NOT SEXUALLY ACTIVE, EXCEPT FOR STRANGE EROTIC FANTASIES,AND WHERE NEUTERING IS CALLED FOR, THERE IS BUT ONE OTHER OPTION LEFT. AND STILL – OWING TO MY ETHICAL AND MORAL UNDERPINNINGS, I WOULD UP FOR YOUR RELEASE TO THE FUNNY FARM WHERE YOU COULD GRAZE IN THE HAZE AS THE TRUE UNGULATE THAT YOU ARE. AND ONE FINAL CAVEAT – AS THE “GOAT” YOU PROCLAIM TO BE – LICK THE GLUE FROM THE LABELS OF THE CANS – AND PLEASE REFRAIN FROM YOUR HOMOEROTIC PAST PERFORMANCES OF LICKING THE CLUNES OF THE XY CHROMOSOMAL INMATES.

    gil…saying less is more…learn that

  • Gil

    GOAT – “LESS IS MORE” SAYETH THE GOAT. WAS THAT YOUR “COMEBACK” TO YOUR TEACHERS FOR YOUR GRADE FAILURES, AND TO THE GIRLS FOR YOUR POOR SEXUAL PERFORMANCE?

  • romanscapegoat

    no

  • Gil

    Goat – You have proven my point, to the various bloggers, that I have the skills necessary to control your anti-Semitic ravings and disjointed diatribes to a one answer rejoinder, to wit: “no.” Sans antipsychotic meds, ECT, prolonged psychiatric hospitalization, and/or verbal psycho – therapy. I must admit that I lobed in a bit of behavioral therapy. But whatever works – works. I promise not to bill medicaid, nor, which I doubt you have, private medical insurance. I’m sure with this disclosure you are chomping on the bit to answer. I promise not to gloat nor brag. It is refreshing to note that I haven’t lost my skills. So fire away – Griddley. Tempting, and a bit seductive; get it out of your system. As a follow up, I would recommend that you get your ass in gear, leave the religious sites and blogs alone, and put some of your free time into pursuing more normal social avenues. You may find it more rewarding, and avoid intellectual hawks who prey on foolish misanthropes.

    gil…i have reported you to the proper authorities…your harassment is at an end…you block any intellectual discussion with the better higher class Jews on this blog..with your childish fits and gibberish… the high class Jews shun you and laugh at your community college Hebrew dog education…you will never be allowed into the top notch Jew circles…go fetch more wine from the cellar…

  • Gil

    Goat – My, my, your cyclic psychosis returns, with a vengence. I knew I was correct in not billing medicaid for your therapy – it could be ascertained as a fraudently submission. Oh, c’est la vie. It could be related to your dysfunctional menstrual cycle. You are a genuine chimeric coelenterate – of the lowest species. Your canine referance shows that I have gotten to you by referring you to the nearest ASPCA shelter. Perhaps a muzzle could complement your dogged eared attire. It must be rough going through life as a mosaic genetic half man, half ungulate in a worm-like personification. Nice try – but no cigar.
