The guy from NPR apologizes for saying “schlonged”

Neither Trump nor I are Yiddish-speaking Jews, though we both grew up and lived in New York City, where we learned and delighted in colorful language. As my arguments with Goodwin suggest, I like to push the envelope in what is sometimes referred to as polite company. Like on the radio.

But since my previous use of this word has apparently provided Donald Trump a veneer of respectability for yet another in a disturbingly long series of nasty, hateful diatribes, I apologize.

Translation: “Everything I say is only about pushing the envelope, because I’m a good guy, a liberal, but Trump is an evil racist.”

  1. So this guy thinks he gave cover to Trump to use the word “schlonged?” Yeah, that’s it, Trump heard a guy on NPR use the word so he said to himself “well, if it’s OK on NPR, it’s OK for me too.”

  2. The elites are in full riot mode.

    Trump is rallying a populist base for the purpose of toppling globalist sacraments and the globalists can’t believe the old incantations and denouncements aren’t working; ‘racist’ they yell at proposals to secure the border, ‘hater they scream at concern for the gouging of the middle class through the importation of cheap labor, ‘demagogue’ they shriek at the very notion of reviving considerations of the social compact and putting American’s first in priority over potentially hostile Muslims. ‘Who are these people who dare not bow to their betters’ they wonder.

    • McConnell’s article is proof of what I was saying about the difference between smart Paleocons/WNs and stupid ones. Smart paleos like McConnell support Muslim immigration, as he makes clear in the article.

  3. The popular agreement that free speech is a good thing is almost completely dead.

    I suspect this is due to decline in rule of law that becomes more apparent daily.

    Not understanding or being unaware of the concept of “rule of law” is a big prole tell to me. Lots of faux-SWPLs running around who, when pressed, reveal themselves to be proles at heart.

  4. Instead of dealing with real issues facing the country we now on Christmas eve are focusing our attention on the lowest of the low of the Yiddish slang. This is ridiculous. I hope Trump is going to double down on this one. How long will this circus go on? Trump, I have to give it to him, is amazing. He consistently delivers master strokes one after the other. Wow!

  5. Another effete sissy at NPR. Big surprise.

  6. This is just like that cripple who wrote articles about muslims celebrating 9/11. Then 14 years later he retracted it because Trump said it.

    • Exactly the same is right. What is the NPR guy apologizing for, something he said in 2008?

  7. Ben Carson in a speech to a Jewish organization no less kept referring to Hamas as hummus. While this apparent malapropism would seem to undermine Carson’s foreign policy cred, he might have been intentionally kebabing the bastards.

  8. Trump is winning because people who write op-eds like this are running our country.

  9. Lenny Bruce agrees with Lion, Trump would be the most Jewish president:

    “Pinker’s problem? He’s from Montreal. It’s one of my favorite Jewish towns, but it’s not Queens or Long Island, where, as Long Island homeboy Lenny Bruce observed, everyone is Jewish, “even if you’re Catholic,” … “
