On the campaign trail, Mr. Obama pledged to – but then, did not revoke Mr. Bush’s 2002 executive order authorizing religious-oriented recipients of federal funding to hire and fire on religious grounds.
Today I realized what message this scrap of newspaper held for me: (more…)
I just saw the movie “An Education.” And indeed it is. It teaches you that anti-Semitism is alive and thriving. In this curdled film, Peter Sarsgaard plays an older man named David who meets 16 year old named Jenny. Within seconds of their meeting he announces he is Jewish. He proceeds to seduce her, boink her – poorly – lasting only for seconds, while spewing creepy baby-talk. He robs old ladies, is an egregious racist, calling black people “schwarzes” and then profits by moving these “undesirables” into lily white nabes so as frightened white residents flee the hood, David can rob them of their valuables. Oh, and spoiler alert: he proposes to Jenny, but forgets to tell her he is already married, and, we discover, he makes a frequent habit of seducing gullible young girls and proposing to them.
So, sue me. Maybe I shouldn’t bundle these two cartoons together, but the cartoon below popped into my mind (or did it poop into my mind(?)) during the 2008 campaign. John Lennon was right, “woman is nigger of the world.” But only because women allow it. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it. The video below of John & Yoko singing “Woman Is The Nigger Of The World” always makes me laugh. But it makes me cry a little too. Oh well. Sometimes it seems the more things change, the more they stay the same.
