Halle Berry & Her “Jewish Cousin’s” Nose: Where Are All The Ann Coulter Critics?

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****

Oh my G-d. Have I just like ruined my whole career?

That’s what actress Halle Berry asked Friday Night on “The Tonight Show,” after she showed Jay Leno a distorted photo of herself with a giant nose, commenting that it’s “like my Jewish cousin.” (She was on to promote her awful “Things We Lost in the Fire” movie, which–schadenfreude!–bombed big-time. Today, it’s at #15 in box office returns.)
Of course, if you were watching, you didn’t see/hear that because, as The New York Post’s Page Six reports, Jay Leno and his NBC friends saved her by editing out the word “Jewish.” Would they have saved a conservative this way? Watch the video (thanks to Allah for locating it) and tell me:


Please also tell me: Where are all the Ann Coulter critics who are so concerned with Anti-Semitism? I guess a bigoted, liberal (half)Black actress gets a pass where a conservative, blonde, white commentator does not. What was that which George Orwell said about all the animals in the barnyard being equal, but some being more equall than others?
BTW, in case you haven’t heard, Berry & her male model boytoy are expecting a baby. Let’s hope he/she/it isn’t born with a nose like her “Jewish cousin.” Otherwise, she’s takin’ it straight to the plastic surgeon for some work (just like she got on her own “Jewish cousin” nose–thanks to reader Lexi for the tip on that).
As reader Maxine Weiss comments:

Why does Halle Berry get a pass after making a totally anti-Semitic remark ?
Yet, everybody jumps over Ann Coulter for essentially …nothing ???????
Halle Berry’s is the far worse remark, because she was talking about physical characteristics, in a very derogative way.
Coulter was just discussing religious differences in general.

A comment best made to the Nazi-funded Media Matters for America gang a/k/a “The New Anti-Semitism Police.” What’s the matter, Media Matters–Cat Got Your (“Jewish Cousin’s”) Nose (and Tongue)?
So, where have I heard similar comments about the “Jew nose” before? Oh yeah, now I remember . . . .
Since the Berry “Jewish Cousin’s” nose cat is out of the bag, trust me on this: She won’t get the Mel Gibson or Ann Coulter treatment anytime soon. Instead, it’ll be the equivalent of her quickly wiping a speck of dust off her shoe.
Don’t get me wrong. I can laugh at myself and my ethno/religious group with the best of them. But what’s good for the Goose is good for the Halle. And clearly, Jay Leno and NBC had a problem with it, or they wouldn’t have secretly edited it out.
**** UPDATE/Exit Question: How much did Apple pay Halle Berry for this interesting bit of Mac “product placement”?

What’s really frightening is that Halle Berry has enough pull at NBC to get the remark censored. NBC—a network that usually doesn’t censor anything.
Keep in mind we are talking about a network that splashed the Virginia Tech Manisfesto all over the airwaves during the dinner hour. They gave Kitty Kelley a 3-day open forum on the Today show in 2004. And yet, they’ll freely censor Halle Berry on Late night ??
Funny, NBCs need to “Whitewash” certain things but not others.

The formerly suicidal Halle doesn’t like black noses either. She had a nose job to correct her half-black nose. Check her high school pictures.

Debbie, while I agree with the double-standard regarding the lack of attention regarding Berry’s comment vs. Coulter, I think you’re reaching calling Halle a “bigot”. I mean, Halle’s known for a lot of things (her looks, making bad movies, etc.), but being political or making anti-semitic remarks isn’t one of them. Instead, I think it was a bad attempt at being funny and I give Leno’s audience credit for not laughing.

Note that Coulter was not crucified by religious Jews, only the secular left (both Jewish and non). It wasn’t about an affront to their “religion”, it was another angle on which to bash a conservative.

Hi Debbie,
I guess in your book, a bigoted, conservative, blonde, white commentator gets a pass where a liberal (half)Black does not. What was that which George Orwell said about all the animals in the barnyard being equal, but some being more equall than others?:
Berry made a stupid joke based on actual facial characteristics which any Jewish person must admit is true wether offensive or not. Like Black people have dark skin, Mexicans tend to have brown skin, Japanese people have certain facial characteristics, Jewish people do as well, though this is not universal it is common. If that is opffensive then it is offensive. It is not politically correct to point it out so now jewish people can be offended by Berry’s stupid joke. BTW she has apologized.
Coulter believes that she is better than any Jew She refuses to apologize. She is perfect & Jews are flawed period. Jews should not be offended by that?
[JAM: NOT SURE WHAT YOU MEANT BY "WHICH ANY JEWISH PERSON MUST ADMIT." HAVE YOU EVER SEEN MY NOSE, MY MOM'S NOSE, MY SISTERS' NOSES? WE ARE ALL 100% JEWISH AND WE DO NOT HAVE BIG NOSES. IN FACT, ALL OF OUR NOSES ARE SMALLER THAN HALLE BERRY'S NOSE WAS BEFORE SHE GOT HER NOSEJOB. THAT ALL JEWS HAVE BIG NOSES IS A MYTH AND AN ANTI-SEMITIC STEREOTYPE. DON'T YOU REMEMBER ALL THE NAZI AND ANTI-SEMITIC MUSLIM LITERATURE THROUGHOUT THE AGES, WITH PICS OF JEWS WITH "HOOK NOSES" USED TO INCITE VIOLENCE AGAINST JEWS AND POGROMS? IF YOU DO NOT, I SUGGEST YOU LOOK IT UP FOR A REFRESHER COURSE. DS]

we should be more concerned about that unborn child, born out of wed lock ,she is a known kook, just asked david justice former baseball player and the party she hit and ran from and then try to deny it ever happen, she a craddle robber and that sperm donor model will have one foot out the door when he open up the medicine cabinet and finds the anti depressants

If Mel Gibson, drunk, during an arrest spews all kinds of trash, and everybody is apalled….then certainly a very sober Halle Berry on network Televsion should be held to the same standards.
And, she absolutely meant Jews. Plenty of other people have big noses—Italians, Greeks etc….
Berry had very specific intentions, and she was fine with it, until Jay Leno spoke up.

Maxine Weiss on October 23, 2007 at 7:42 pm

Ann Coulter didn’t say anything that isn’t being said in Comparative Religion classes in every university across the Country.
Coulter was talking about Theology and pointing out differences of belief. What Berry did was quite different.

Maxine Weiss on October 23, 2007 at 7:46 pm

Maxine Weiss, you are a complete idiot; a stupid fool for the right.
First off, there’s a big difference between what Barry said and what Gibson said. Go to remedial English class to find out.
And unlike Berry (who was making a truly harmless joke), Coulter wasn’t joking. And I sincerely doubt Jews are being called “imperfect” in comparative religion classes.

The reason why conservative Jews didn’t bash Coulter is because they don’t want to make waves with Christian conservatives, many of whom are strong supporters of Israel and hate Muslims. Conservative Jews who didn’t chastise Coulter took the cowardly way out.

They laughed after they saw the picture. That was the joke.

Debbie, it’s you who needs the refresher course. Don’t forget about anti-Semitism by American and European Christians. An article at WND by Vox Day shows my point:
http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=58139
Coulter is right!

“America is still quite friendly towards Jews, but the incessant attacks on Christianity by the likes of Deutsch, Forman and Abe Foxman have grown increasingly tiresome. Given this irritating behavior, and the historical fact that Jews have worn out their welcome in literally dozens of countries over the centuries, it is the height of foolishness for a small number of misguided individuals to demand that 80 percent of the American population remain silent about the tenets of its religious faith. Christians are dying for their faith in the Sudan, in North Korea, in China, Vietnam and Myanmar; they are not about to shut their mouths simply because a few Jews in the media disapprove of their beliefs.”

Debbie,
I made no comment about your nose or any member of your family. The only pictures I have ever seen of you are the glamour shot on your blog & a few unflattering pictures of you with make up a prostitute would be ashamed of on Howard Stern’s site, I know little about you other than the views that you posed all of the times that you were a guest on the Howard Stern show. I found this posting as a link from Michelle Malkin’s site.
I did not say that ALL Jewish people have any type of nose. I stated that it was a common characteristic & this is the truth. Nothing to be offended by or ashamed of. I am happy to hear that you are proud that your nose is smaller than Berry’s formerly huge nose. You seem to think that this is something that all people must know about Ms. Berry.
BTW, why are you so offended by Berry’s stupid joke & yet you were so happy to be a guest on Howard Sterns show so many times? Howard is considering wearing a Hitler mustache on his next Letterman appearance. He has made thousands of antisemetic jokes & thousands of racial jokes using each & every stereotype that you can think of. I like his show but even I cringe at times at some of the things he jokes about. I will not make myself upset over Halle Berry’s joke as it would be hypocritical of me why do you? You go on Stern & tell him what a great guy he is then you get angry over this.
I guess that Howard Stern & Ann Coulter are more equal than the “half black” animals in your book.
Take care JAM

Not sure why Jews are so constantly depicted as having hooknoses. Actor Jamie Farr–who’s not Jewish–has a very prominent hook nose. Born Jameel Farrah, he’s Lebanese. Actor James Cromwell has a hooknose, and the last time I checked, Cromwell is his real last name–not Cromwellberg or Cromwellstein.
I’m married to a beautiful woman whose ancestry includes Canadian and Mexican; to me, beauty exists in every culture. Russian, German, Asia, the middle east, africa, the islandds, etc. Some of the prettiest girls I’ve ever met have been Jewish. I think Chandra Levy was a very beautiful lady, and I also think that Iranian-born actress Shoreh Aghdashloo is very beautiful. And Debbie’s not bad-looking, either. :)

JAM: Sorry, but you’re incomprehensible. Howard Stern? Stop with the non sequiteurs and get your sorry a– into anger management.

lexi on October 23, 2007 at 11:52 pm

I think this comment is offensive. I guess we don’t have a billion dollar Jewish Nazi on our side listening to every word out of every democrats mouth.
I did read Steve Malzberg interview with Coulter on Media Matters since that show is on here on NY. I think like many coservative she does support Israel. I am still not thrilled with the comments though although it should be kept in context and I do now thing that Savage went a little too far here although I think she does deserves some criticism here. Just because Liberals are intollerant doesn’t mean conservativbe should be also. To say that Jews have to obey laws and in her religon they don’t doesn’t make her look very good and I never really was crazy about her regardless ahd why should I take her seriously if she doesn’t have to obey laws. She is all about love instead the way Christians are. Uh-Huh.
Her books are bestsellers but on a day to day basis she is mostly irrelevant. There are more insightful columns and blogs out there.

“I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his humility? Revenge! If a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his sufferance be by Christian example? Why, revenge! The villainy you teach me I will execute, and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction.”

Thank you Lexi, I will sign up as soon as Debbie signs up for fake anger management.
If you are OK with Debbie’s support for Howard Stern’s antisemetic views & with Ann Coulter confirming that she believes that this would be a better place if every single Jew was gone, that is cool.
BTW ain’t it funny how Debbie reffered to the half-black’s future child as an IT.
LOL That is pure comedy. :)

I’ve never been a fan of Halle. I’ve always loved Denzel, but never Halle. Denzel deserved the oscar, she didn’t.

I sat next to Halle Berry a couple of weeks ago at a free BAFTA screening of that dumb movie. She is a good looking white woman dipped in caramel.

Debbie,
Comments and beliefs in Hollywood culture (religious sect) is half the reason my family and I have turned away from them. The other reason is they lust to degrade, demean, and what can only be viewed as a fanatical hatred of the LDS Church and the Saints.
Fortunately, there is a market in Utah for LDS values – based media, and a few studios and acting groups catering to our wants.
We don’t need Hollywood or their psychotic religious sect. The free market can deal with them when folks want something different.
They may control the studios and Motion Picture Corporations, but I control my wallet. And their money can run out if enough folks don’t pay for their “art”.

bhparkman on October 24, 2007 at 9:36 pm

Halle Berry is more white than black. She is only black when it suits her purposes. She can take off her clothes but she’ll never catch on to acting.
Blitzer complains about Jews being touchy, but with him it’s footbaths for everyone.

I would be willing to bet cash money that it was Halle Berry’s publicist that got NBC to edit the audio.
