Dear “Rabbi” Sandra Bernhard: Please Leave Our Religion; Unfunny Comedienne Uses Bigoted Anti-Gentile Slurs Against Sarah Palin, Non-Jews
By Debbie Schlussel
As readers of this site know, though I intend to vote McCain-Palin, I’m not exactly overwhelmed by Sarah Palin (or McCain) and find the over-exuberant gushing over her, ridiculous.
But far more outrageous is some of my fellow co-religionists’ (in name only) outrageous attacks on Palin. First there is the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations, which foolishly disinvited Sarah Palin from an anti-Iran rally. Stupid move. And for the record, these “Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations” are self-appointed rich people, mostly liberals, who head organizations that have very few members and whose membership’s average age is like 76. They don’t represent the Jews. They don’t rep me.
Now, there is Sandra Bernhard, the unfunny (like most female comediennes) lesbian single mother, who is equally ugly and twisted on the inside as out. Her bigoted anti-Gentile video tirade against Sarah Palin is embarrassing, and as a Jew, I’m disgusted. Here’s the vile video full of disgusting language:
The two slurs she uses against Sarah Palin–”goyishe” and “shiksa”–are derogatory terms for non-Jews, and I never use them. My dad taught me from when I was very little, to refrain. And I cringe when I hear other people use them. The terms are bigoted. Period.
“Goy”, a Hebrew word, literally means “nation”, the “goyim” are the “nations”, but it’s a term used to describe non-Jews, and it has a negative connotation.
Far worse is “Shiksa”, the feminine term of “Shegetz” (pronounced “SHAY-getz”), which also means non-Jew. The word is extremely derogatory, as it comes from the Book of Genesis, in which G-d tells the snake (who got Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden apple) that G-d is going to cut the snake’s legs off and make it and all future snakes creepy crawlers of the earth who will have to eat the dirt and dust. The word, “Shkatz” (pronounced “Shkotz”), is the word for creepy crawler of the earth, and that’s where the term “Shiksa”–used by Sandra Bernhard to describe Sarah Palin–comes from. Sickening.
Frankly, I’d take Sarah Palin any day over Sandra Bernhard. This disgusting figure of showbiz is nauseating and warped in so many ways. I wish we could kick her out of my religion. But for now, like so many stupid celebs, she is a follower of faux Kabbalah a/k/a the Jewish Scientology.
Anyone who knows better knows that the Jewish Bible–the Old Testament–is very much a part of the Christian religion. And I believe Sarah Palin knows far more about it than Sandra Bernhard, who tells her she can’t use it.
I love how she attacks Sarah Palin’s looks. Somebody needs to give Ms. Bernhard a mirror. Guys, which one would you rather “date”?
Oh, and what’s up with Bernhard’s disgusting comment: “a bikini wax: fresh Jew-esque twat in your face”?
Um, no thanks. Three letters: TMI. And please stop invoking my religion for your stupid, disgusting rants against Sarah Palin.
Who died and made you chief rabbi, Sandra Bernhard? Now, please go away. We Jews don’t want to claim you.
