**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATES ****
On Twitter, I frequently get vile, anti-Semitic Tweets sent my way, but usually they come from Muslims, Black Muslims, and (in my e-mail inbox) Sarah Palin supporters. (You can follow me on Twitter here.)
Today, an apparently Japanese man *** CORRECTION: he now says he’s Italian *** who goes by the names “Fatmanippo” and “Samuraifat,” weighed in:
@DebbieSchlussel you wicked f-cking bagel fiending, bloodsucking, golden chocolate coin eating whore of a jew
about 9 hours ago from web
(By the way, he didn’t use a dash in the f-word. I put that in to try to minimize this site being blocked by certain software programs at the workplaces of my readers.)
Samuraifat a/k/a Fatmanippo: Jew Hater of the Day
For the record, I don’t eat bagels. I don’t like them. This would be my t-shirt on the subject. Not sure what “bagel fiending” means, but I’ve never used a stale bagel as a weapon. Good suggestion, though, and perhaps I’ll try it some day.
To those who don’t get the “golden chocolate coin” part, that’s apparently a reference to the treats kids traditionally get on Channukah, which are chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil and made to look like the gold coins or “Channukah Gelt” that was customarily given instead of gifts on Channukah in Europe. For the record, I don’t eat those coins either, but looks like the fat Japanese guy has had his fill of them.
For those inclined to send future anti-Semitic Tweets like this and in the interest of accuracy, please note the other foods stereotypically associated with the Jews, which I don’t like and don’t consume: lox, cream cheese, herring, smoked salmon, gefilte fish, lutefisk (oh, wait, wrong ethnic group for that one). I think that covers it.
Yup, I should stop “whining” about the rise in anti-Semitism because, clearly, the problem has been eradicated.
File Under: Does the Second Amendment Cover the Right to Bear Bagels?
**** UPDATE: Sadly, some very prominent conservative commentators and organizations are embracing and/or looking the other way on anti-Semitism like this, and far worse. I’ll be writing about this in the near future, but here are some names: Thomas More Law Center, Sam Adams Alliance, Hot Air/Ed Morrissey, Michelle Malkin, Hanan Tudor (who goes by the porn name, “Brigitte Gabriel”), ACT for America, American Congress for Truth.
All of them chose to look the other way on Holocaust-denying Muslim death, rape, and torture threats on my life and that of my family members, and to continue to promote individuals and organizations which praised and/or condoned it.
*** UPDATE #2: Apparently this twitterer is the person behind, JewsKilledMichaelJackson.com, and he’s Italian, according to tweets he just sent me.
