Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

By a random twist of pop corn fate, a truly disgusting hate crime was somehow connected with a Mordechai Ben David concert.

As it happens, Mordechai Ben David, of Yidden, Daddy Dear, Lichtigher Shabbos & other "controversies", turns out to be a racist.

Whether or not that makes him an idiot is up for discussion.

In other news, Mordechai Ben David is still the king.

South Africa is a beautiful place to visit, though its old flag is a symbol of its racist past. Oh, and the current Prime Minister can't count. That's not related to this thread, but it is something you should definitely know.

Midweek parev cholent was served. For a wider, more tasteless menu, please visit the "Pick your Poison" thread.

That Jew should keep his mouth shut!  >:(

Bibi should keep his mouth shut.  :)
It still depends on the context.

As it should be.
It's worse than what MBD said, but I wouldn't brand you an anti-Semite based on one comment.

Bibi should stop attacking Obama.

Is that better for context?

Possibly. More context would still be helpful. For example, if we were discussing stoking anti-Semitism in the black community, it would be relevant to point out that as a Jew, Bibi's negative comments would have a stronger affect than a non-Jew's attack.

UN resolution.
Correct. It was much more of an anti-Obama comment than an anti-black comment, said out of anger at the UN resolution. I don't think it's fair to paint a man a racist based on that.

I think you all need to be truthful with yourselves. If BO came out tomorrow in his speech and called Jews a disparaging name he would immediately and for all eternity be labeled an anti-Semite by everyone here. You wouldn't give him the "one time" pass.

There is a difference between a) a politician b) giving a speech vs a singer at a concert pumped up from a song about peace saying a derogatory term.

No there isn't. But OK, change the BO speech to a private BO fundraiser with a leaked video.

I agree that he should apologize, just not with your comparisons.

OK, so help me understand. In which case would you excuse a derogatory one time comment about Jews and not brand someone an anti-Semite?

Once again, apologize he should, you just can't compare him to a politician/ POTUS. Politicians have political apponents that blow it up for their personal advantage making it a given that such stories shouldn't happen. I also don't believe that he meant it in a racial way, just as
1. You can imagine that Obama ain't that popular in Israel these days...( UN, Paris, Kerry speech )

2. I don't even know if he's for Trump

But once again he should've apologized already.

I understand. So I simply asked for a case where you would excuse a public figure for an anti Semitic comment. You haven't answered that.

If he doesn't apologize or explain that he didn't mean it that way then you can only draw one conclusion.
