All I Want for Christmas is Jews, for the third time

It wouldn’t be the Christmas season if I didn’t link to my favorite Christmas-time video.

It’s too easy to merely write this off as a parody of anti-Semitism. Either it’s anti-Semitism hiding as a parody of anti-Semitism, or it’s a parody of anti-Semitism hiding as a parody of anti-Semitism.

The song manages to hit most of the major anti-Semitic tropes:

1. Jews control Hollywood.
2. Jews are rich.
3. Jews control the legal profession.
4. The Jews killed Jesus.
5. At then end of the video, the words “Happy Holidays” are displayed. The implication is that the Jews made everyone stop saying “Merry Christmas.”
6. The best stand-up comics are Jewish. (Well this one is true, because gentiles just aren’t very funny.)
7. And the most insidious of all: that Jewish men can’t resist the allure of blonde shiksas. Wait, maybe this is also true. (See Blonde Shiksas, Jewish Man’s Kryptonite.)

    • 1. Jews control Hollywood.

      They do. Along with much of the media in general. Both the business and legal end as well as product and opinion creation.

      2. Jews are rich.

      High percentage of the wealthy.

      3. Jews control the legal profession.

      Greatly over represented.

      4. The Jews killed Jesus.

      Jewish political/religious rivalry + Romans sending a message to trouble makers.

      5. At then end of the video, the words “Happy Holidays” are displayed. The implication is that the Jews made everyone stop saying “Merry Christmas.”

      Jewish bitterness over feeling “left-out” during the holidays.

      6. The best stand-up comics are Jewish.

      Over represented but not the majority of the best over the past 50 years.

      7. And the most insidious of all: that Jewish men can’t resist the allure of blonde shiksas. Wait, maybe this is also true.

      Now add Asian women. Plenty of Jewish women now just dye their hair blond so some of that mystique is gone. Same with “black” women.

      • Didnt Lion already confess to #5?

        And this video isnt antisemitic- its just members of an in group kidding each other, like stock brokers kidding each other about widows and orphans. The video itself is terrible; as bad as it was last year. Barely humorous and unable to sustain it the full length of the song. Basically if someone told you the song title you know the entire “joke”.

      • You tell ’em Rifleman!

        Of course it’s true Jews control Hollywood – always did. Hollywood was created by Jews, with an Italian immigrant banker’s money. (Bank of America – look it up.) I once read that one of the reasons they founded Hwood in SoCal was so that the damn Jewish producers could easily abscond over the border if they were raided by their other creditors – although that may be a fictitious, colorful tale.

        The difference is that in the old days, the Jews who controlled Hollywood made some gems. A lot of the stuff was dreck, but some gems, and even the dreck was genuine popular art.

        And the actors! Don’t get me started, but the greatness of the actors, from Frederick March to Jimmy Stewart makes today’s crop of schmucks look like schmucks.

        The old Hollywood Jewish producers had a Protestant dominated culture to please, and they did so.

        Today’s Jewish producers have a pornified multicult rabble, and they produce low-grade junk for them.

        Everything sucks. I’m depressed.

      • Hollywood is NOT controlled by Jews, it’s controlled by people who are disproportionately Jewish relative to 4% of America being Jewish (not 2% as misleadingly reported), but they don’t act to benefit Judaism, they act to benefit themselves and to benefit liberal causes.

      • Calm down, Lion. I didn’t say Hollywood is controlled by THE Jews. I said it was controlled by Jews. And I’ll stand by that. I’ve read that 60% of all executive and creative decisions in H’wood are made by Jews. I don’t believe it. I think it’s closer to 75%.

        And you know who I blame for this? Goyim, that’s who. If they want to create their own damn movies, they can. Look at Tyler Perry. A black man who didn’t like how Hollywood treated his own people, so he created a little production co. in Atlanta. It’s true he ultimately has to go through “Hollywood” in terms of distribution, but everything else is his. The man is a goddamn business genius.

        I’d love to see a racially conscious white Christian who is capable of doing even a tenth of what Tyler Perry has. Something tells me I’ll be waiting for a long, long time, because all they are good for is bitching about Jews on the internet.

        Anyway, Hollywood truly is controlled by Jews. Their characteristics & attitudes are highly exaggerated and extreme, even for Jews. But they are Jews. We can’t deny this fact, any more than decent blacks can deny the fact that violent crime is way higher among blacks than whites.

        Supposedly a difference in the nature of the jews being recent immigrants or perhaps the societies they came from. But the men who ran Hollywood actually *liked* America, which cant be said of the current crop.

        Maybe its just a problem with the second and third generations of immigrants universally being wishy washy. Or maybe the holocaust fundamentally changed the thinking.

        It’s assimilation. Except for the Orthodox, Jews are assimilated Americans, and need I remind you, assimilated Americans are a pretty screwed up lot.

        Speaking of Hollywood and Jews, this was wryly funny:

        Gary Oldman has made a grovelling apology after saying Hollywood is a ‘town run by Jews’ in his now infamous Playboy interview.

        And after he was attacked over his choice of words by the Anti-Defamation League, he issued his fawning apology, in which he hailed Jews as ‘the chosen people.’

        ‘I hope you will know that this apology is heartfelt, genuine, and that I have an enormous personal affinity for the Jewish people in general, and those specifically in my life.’
        He then finished by begging for forgiveness, going as far as to say he is unworthy of using a Hebrew greeting meaning ‘peace be upon you.’
        The working class actor, who is the son of a welder, said: ”The Jewish People, persecuted thorough the ages, are the first to hear God’s voice, and surely are the chosen people.

      • George Carlin was catholic. Bill Hicks grew up Southern Baptist and Kinison was a Pentecostal. Those three guys have been more influential than any Jewish standup comedians from the 1980s. Dennis Leary was also great once upon a time. Nowadays Patton Oswalt is very funny, so is Bill Burr and so is Paul F. Tompkins. Plenty of great black comedians – Pryor, Murphy, Chappelle. Most of the great UK comedians, and there are dozens, are gentiles. Any of those are better at stand-up than Seinfeld or Sandler. Jews actually tend to be better writers than performers. Jews dominated comedy in the 1950s and 60s, but have been fading.

    • Monty Python had a handful of funny scenes in all of their movies combined, but there are plenty of funny gentiles, including some of the ones Turambar mentioned. Bill Burr is very funny too.

      Today, there’s probably more funny gentile standup comics than Jewish in America, and it will probably get worse over the next several years, as left-leaning Jewish stand-ups dwell on Trump, like their predecessors did with Reagan.

        Right. On another note, Jon Stewart has struck quite a melancholy & conciliatory note since Trump. He’s not part of the faithless elector movement. Same with Bernie – he is actually saying he’s sick of political correctness.

  3. Thing is, if you have grown up in a Jewish environment then of course you are going to find Jewish humour funnier than the rest, just as English people think English comedians are the best., and Swedes think Swedish comedians are the best (I imagine).

    There probably is a slightly higher proportion of Jews in comedy in America because being funny is easier if you are clever with good verbal I.Q. Being an outsider who sees the culture he lives in from a different perspective is also an advantage. It would be interesting to know what Jewish comedy in Israel is like by way of comparison. But the blanket statement ‘gentiles aren’t funny’? Meh, I could rattle of a list of fantastic goy comedians and comedy writers, whilst there are many Jewish ones like Mel Brooks that I find really over-rated (and the Andrew Dice Clay you posted was just terrible). But each to his own.

        She deleted the tweet and apologized profusely but she can’t unsay what she said.

        This should all be noted carefully – the left has gone completely crazy. This is much worse than back in Reagan’s time. Much much worse.

        After Trump’s inauguration, he’ll be completely frozen out socially. I know all the geeks here will scoff at that, but things like this are important. Funny how that is. You guys think you are so realistic, but you deny the most important aspect of life – a person’s social standing.

        Trump’s social standing among the Left is zero. That’s why we need to support him 100%. Because he’s really our only hope.

In that link, the book says the Ashkenazim were not prohibited from farming, but found it risky of contention. In reality, the Ashkenazim found no use for it. This is the reason why most of them didn’t farm. They had a long tradition of literacy which made them suited for the professions in the urban areas.

      • The other stuff sounds like propaganda for starting a war, like the alleged WMDs, and not the real reason the U.S. got involved there.

        The propaganda was that Iraq was a threat to the U.S. and had links to Al Queada. The REALITY was that it was a potential threat to Israel.

      • Bush 1 attacked Iraq because of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Bush 2 attacked Iraq for no obvious reason, or maybe some crazy idea about turning the Middle East into peaceful democracies. Or to be fair to W, we were in a continuous state of war with Iraq since Kuwait. It made sense to finally finish that war.

      • Speaking of Iranians, they are more talented than the Israelis. Just go ask Netanyahu. He said it, despite going on a tirade about Iran stockpiling WMDs.

      • Iran can’t even build a nuclear bomb which is 1940s technology, while Israel manufactures computer chips. Iranians more talented? I don’t think so.

        You clearly didn’t understand his comment if you also believe Muslims will go to war against any non-Islamic neighbor. France’s foreign policy establishment has consistently been anti-Israel and Arabist for decades, they opposed the second Iraq War, but France is still a prime target for Muslim terrorists.

        Muslim aggression against their neighbors is clearly not a result of whether or not non-Muslims back Israel or not, as liars like Pumpkin Person would have it (Muslims also have centuries long territorial claims against Russia and India) but a crude will to conquer anyone who does not belong to their faith.

      • They recieved a lot more than just financial aid. The U.S. has used political & military power to weaken, sanction, & remove Israel’s enemies in the Middle East at great expense to its blood, treasure, interests & status.

        Nothing but lies.

        America beginning with Eisenhower used its influence to keep Soviet Russia from turning the oil rich Middle East into a satellite. It’s the stupid Arabs that America has overwhelmingly been spending its resources on, with little of it devoted to Israel. Without our support the Muslims would be controlled by Communist Russia.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eisenhower_Doctrine

        The Eisenhower Administration also saw the Middle East as being influential for future foreign policy not only regarding the United States, but also its allies. The region contains a large percentage of the world’s oil supply, and it was perceived that if it were to fall to communism, the United States and its allies would suffer immense economic consequences. Eisenhower’s protests against longtime allies—the United Kingdom and France—during the Suez Canal Crisis meant that the U.S. was the lone western power in the Middle East and placed U.S. oil security in jeopardy as the USSR filled the power vacuum. The Eisenhower Doctrine was a backflip against the previous policy, however—the U.S. now had the burden of military action in the Middle East to itself.

      • He fired scud misiles at Israel in the 1980s & was funding Palestian suicide bombers & if he ever got WMD, might have used it against Israel.

        In the 1980s Saddam was a NATO supported dictator who we were at peace with. It was his invasion of oil rich Kuwait in 1990 that terminated his alliance with America.

        And as for the alliance with Israel you dismiss as useless, it was Israel’s preemptive airstrike in the 1980s against Hussein’s nuclear program that allowed us to kick Iraq out of Kuwait in 1991. If Israel had not struck the Iraqi program Saddam would have a nuclear arsenal that would have made Operation Desert Storm impossible to pull of.

      • “You clearly didn’t understand his comment”

        No. You didn’t understand mine.

        “Muslim aggression against their neighbors is clearly not a result of whether or not non-Muslims back Israel or not, (..) but a crude will to conquer anyone who does not belong to their faith.”

        My point was that both are true. Support for Israel provokes muslims. But muslims would be aggressive anyway.

        “Like you’re showing appreciation to Lion for allowing you to comment on his blog while you write Jews with a lower case ‘j’?”

        You read too much into whether something is capitalized.

  24. The Muslims were ahead of the Jews in the Medieval Ages (both the Sephardim and the Ashkenazim) when it came to science. Jews managed to become the late comers in the scientific tradition later than the Christians, despite being well received by their Muslims neighbors for much of their existence in the Islamic world. So who’s really more talented?

    • Jews were unable to become scientists because they were excluded from gentile science universities.

      • Muslims and Christians all worked independently during much of the Medieval period. So did Jews. There were no universities or places of learning where Christians, Jews and Muslims were under one roof studying science together. There were Christians translating Arabic scientific works into Latin. There were Jews who were doing it from Arabic to Hebrew.

      • True that! As recently as 1951 during Stalin’s purge of the Jews my father was expelled from the Physics department of the Moscow University. He couldn’t get into any department that had physics as part of its name. No geophysics or astrophysics, fuget about it. He ended up as a hydrogeologist. It’s common knowledge that in many countries Jews couldn’t become professors until early 20th century. Many had converted for carrier advancement. Those should’ve been decapitated though.

      • Medieval universities started out as religious institutions. It would be silly for people of other religions to attend. From a religious standpoint, they should have continued to exclude people from other religions. All it’s done is turn them into secular institutions full of atheists and leftists.
