I, for one, am just that, a soulless golem. Is that a problem for anyone?

If this character represents “people”, then I would say that Jews are better than people.

Maybe if we bend over ostentatiously for these Nazi fucks, they’ll leave our families alone?

I wonder if Sacha Baron Cohen feels slightly responsible.

I’ve seen quotation marks repeatedly used here on the BBS around “Jews.” :no_mouth:

Gotta teach the controversy by giving equal time to both sides of the debate /s

“Are Jews people?”

C’mon, it’s an honest question.


#16

Man, satire is getting a bit heavy-handed these days.

I HATE to be the one to come in and make Spencer look like less of a monster…it pains me to do so…but CNN’s reporting there is off base.

The quote was not referring to Jews (directly). He was referring to political commentators that were decrying Trump’s chances of winning through the election - insinuating that they were protecting Jewish interest.

As reported here:

Not that there isn’t plenty to be insulted by there. And not that there isn’t plenty of other flat out antisemitic garbage in what Spencer said. But CNN does NOT do their point any favors by blatantly re-contextualizing that quote.
