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.

What happen to everyone that wanted to discuss the despicable act that happened in Chicago? Don't tell me that was just a smokescreen.  :-\
It was evil and vile. What more is there to say?

I agree but some feel we should be discussing that instead of MBD. So I made the offer but now no one wants to discuss it. So
I have to ask if that was just a smokescreen.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

I don't see how that will become popcorn. Who is taking the thugs side?

People are petrified to touch that story for fear of being called the R word themselves. Jews OTOH are an easy target. :P

I agree again.  :)
I am trying to figure out what they want to discuss about it.

I think I've posted this on this forum before, it made a big impact on me when I read it a decade ago, and I think it is a very pertinent exercise in these discussions:

http://bogieworks.blogs.com/treppenwitz/2006/04/mirrors.html

Whenever you want to defend are or attack, check your prejudices, put the shoe on the other foot. Think of Beyonce using such invective about Netanyahu, even just once off.

Why are we discussing one comment from MBD, when we have disgusting forms of racism in chicago?
You can never speak about an issue that is connected to your community if there is a larger, more serious issue in another community happening.

Why is the take back Lakewood thread in existence when people are dying in Chicago!? The nerve of people to worry about duplexes when people are being shot.

No one is accusing MBD of kidnapping and torturing black people.
Forget the torture focus on the racism

Good one. Brain is busy with the beyonce and MBD comparison/connection. It works, but interesting choice of celebrity comparisons.

There is disagreement about MBD but no disagreement about Chicago.

I'll take a stab at it

(would I be considered racist if I mentioned it is BHO'S and Rahm Emanuel's home town?)
Or better, would I be considered racist if I said they could've been BHO's sons/daughters?

Not a male singer's comment to a female singer's comment.
You have to kidding? A racist comment by a male is different than a female making a racist comment.
