Toni Morrison: Jew-Hating, Anti-Israel, Overrated Writer Dead

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s another case of the Billy Joel Theorem:  only the good die young.  Toni Morrison, possibly the most overrated writer in American history (though Ernest Hemingway and Maya Angelou are tough competition), is dead at 88.  Predictably, the media–social, fake, mainstream, and otherwise–is in the overwrought gushing phase over this Jew-hating, anti-Israel, race-baiting pretender.

Yes, Toni Morrison proudly declared herself not only an enemy of Israel, but also of Jews in general. You see, Jews were too White in her opinion. “A lot of black people believe that Jews in this country, have become white. They behave like white people rather than Jewish people.”

Um, last time I checked, I don’t need instruction on how to behave as a Jew, but thanks for the tip, Toni. For Morrison–a writer whose sole brand is race and is obsessed with race-baiting–being White was a bad thing. Yes, that’s racism, woman.

Morrison was incensed that the Holocaust, in which six million Jews were murdered, was getting recognition and felt it was being made too big of a deal. In her typical way of pitting ethnic groups and races against each other–an industry from which she made millions–she used “Beloved,” the overrated screed for which she is most known, to imply that the Holocaust got too much attention versus Black slavery in America. Slavery happened in America? Who knew? With “Roots,” and “Twelve Years a Slave,” and servings of that nature coming out several times a month with regularity, it doesn’t get any attention at all, right?

The dedication in Beloved talks about “60 Million and more,” suggesting that slavery was ten times worse than the Holocaust. But nobody (save some White supremacists) ever said slavery wasn’t a giant tragedy in American history. Only a Jew-hater–and Spike Lee, Louis Farrakhan, and other Black intellectual anti-Semites have done this–would juxtapose one against the other in whiny bitch fashion, measuring the amount of perceived attention one gets versus the other.

Then, there is Morrison’s outrageous views on Israel and her love affair with HAMAS, a group which, given the opportunity, would gladly throw her off a building as the useful idiot that she is, as it has regularly done with gays, Christians, other “uppity women,” and other minorities just like her.

In 2006, in the midst of a series of escalating terrorist attacks on innocent Israeli civilians (attacks which continue to this day but are rarely reported), HAMAS kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. Morrison and 17 other pretentious leftist writers, liars, and all-around aholes (including Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn), signed a letter excusing the HAMAS terrorist attacks and the kidnapping and dismissing HAMAS rockets sent to kill Israeli civilians as “makeshift missiles.”

Morrison and the others accused Israel of genocide, claiming that Israel is engaged in “a long-term military, economic and geographic practice whose political aim is nothing less than the liquidation of the Palestinian nation.”  That’s interesting, considering that Israel gave the Palestinians two whole states (the Palestinian Authority and Gaza) and control of 95% of what was allegedly Palestinian land, not to mention handing over the Sinai to Egypt, all of which was in effect a liquidation actually of the Jewish nation. The letter Morrison proudly signed also called for and encouraged “resist[ance]” to Israel, which we all know is code for terrorism.  (The full text of the BS letter is here.)

Given that Morrison hated Jews, hated Israel, asserted phony accusations about Israeli “liquidation” of the Palestinians, and bitched and whined about the Holocaust getting too much attention, it was an outrage that she was invited to write an introduction to volumes of the collected works of Holocaust survivor and writer Primo Levi–an introduction in which Morrison refused to even mention the Jews.  Maybe the Holocaust happened to Martians?

Aside from her hatred of the Jews and Israel, there’s Morrison’s writing.  It’s not that great.  And it’s laden with racial situations.  The prose reads like something out of the Bulwer Lytton Fiction Contest for the best opening to a bad novel.  In Beloved, in which a woman must kill her baby to spare the child from slavery, wrote about a “pool of pulsing red light” and then, “Walking through it, a wave of grief soaked him so thoroughly he wanted to cry. It seemed a long way to the normal light surrounding the table, but he made it—dry-eyed and lucky.”  Oy, there are third-rate Harlequin Romance “novels” that read better than that.

Let’s be honest, she wasn’t a great writer.  Not even close.  In fact, she was vastly overrated (and spawned a pinata of countless mediocre race-obsessed writers like her).  But she was a writer who happened to be a Black woman, and that got her anywhere and everywhere. Her entire career is Exhibit A in affirmative action.   Just as Barack Obama wouldn’t have gotten the Nobel Prize were he not the first Black President (Morrison’s absurd claim that Bill Clinton was “the first Black President,” notwithstanding) and Yasser Arafat wouldn’t have gotten one, were he not a Palestinian Muslim blood-soaked terrorist, Toni Morrison would not have gotten a Nobel or Pulitzer were she not a Black chick.  We all know it.  But we’re not supposed to say it.  Because only Blacks (especialy black chicks) can say whatever they want about race and ethnicity–any race or ethnicity–with inpunity.  Intellectual honesty comes at a premium these days.

In 1988, when Beloved wasn’t chosen for the National Book Award or the National Book Critics Circle prize, 48 Black writers protested. Because, after all, it must be RAAAAYCISM!  Even worse, a work from Philip Roth (also vastly overrated, but a far better writer than Morrison, and–oh, no!–a Jew!) was picked for the Critics Circle award.

Despite Toni Morrison’s hatred of the Jews, it was because of Jews in the publishing industry, intellectual circles, and showbiz, that she became a multi-millionairess beyond her wildest dreams, despite the middling talent she was and for which she would have been seen, were it not for her melanin count.

They didn’t just acquiesce to her ascendance. They and their Gentile colleagues helped promote and make Toni Morrison a star. And had not a word of protest to say, when she repaid them with her ugly comments and statements.

Yet more proof not only of the Billy Joel Theorem, but also of the identity of the Jews’ worst enemy: themselves.

Buh-Bye, Toni Morrison. Hope ya packed light. It’s hot where you’re headed.

Excellent post Debbie! Nice to hear from you.

A most deserving obituary. I found Ms. Morrison’s “black first/white last” naturalism to be contrary to all of my better instincts. That she despised Jews and Israel added insult to injury. She won her many accolades not on the basis of talent, but on the basis of blackness. I crank out better stuff every week.

But, hey, I’m white. What do I know?

Seek on August 6, 2019 at 6:25 pm

We only hear about her because she is a black female with Oprah/Obama connections. I’m not familiar with her work and if it wasn’t on the news, I would have no idea who that is. Like Hillary and the Obamas, she is only popular on the left. Am I really supposed to believe that Michelle is the most popular woman in America? I find that hard to believe.

Jerry Doegen on August 6, 2019 at 8:32 pm

Overrated is almost too kind to describe Toni Morrison’s writing. And this article nicely sums up why, unfortunately, Morrison has been shamelessly promoted. I have, however, a minor correction to this piece, where it says that the 1988 National Book Award went to Philip Roth. That Award actually went to Larry Heinemann for “Paco’s Story.” It was the National Book Critics Circle that gave its fiction award to Philip Roth for “The Counterlife.” So, there were actually two awards at the time where Morrison’s “Beloved” didn’t make the cut, and for good reason.

BTW, I highly recommend reading books by Primo Levi, who is a great writer. And if the book of his you happen to get (be it from the library or a bookstore) has a forward by Toni Morrison, don’t let that turn you off to Levi’s book. Just skip her forward.

RA: I stand corrected. Thank you. DS

    Oh my word. Emily Temple–The “esteemed” Wikipedia editor. Pro tip–anyone who obsesses on their high school accomplishments as an adult is suspect in my book.

    Red Ryder on August 8, 2019 at 1:47 pm

Of course, Debbie’s obituary of Morrison is going to be in the minority, telling it like it is, where she doesn’t mince words. But some of Morrison’s obituaries are sickeningly and outrageously fawning.

Take the following opening paragraph written by someone named Emily Temple that I read online:

“I can’t think of another writer who is quite so universally beloved as Toni Morrison. Her work is magnificent, her legacy is unimpeachable, and she reveals her brilliance at every opportunity. She also taught for many years at Princeton, and I think it’s safe to assume she knows a thing or two about nurturing young minds.”

Emily Temple would have been accurate, succinct, and complete had she just stopped at the first three words.

Ralph Adamo on August 7, 2019 at 12:04 am

    I agree!

    Mary Lynn on August 7, 2019 at 8:27 am

Good Article!

Art Escandon on August 7, 2019 at 4:38 am

I couldn’t have said it better, Debbie. Thanks for your fearless honesty. I never saw a reason why this lady got so much attention other than for her color. As far as nurturing young minds at Princeton, I believe “screwing up” would be a better description of what she did to young minds.

OrlandoRican on August 7, 2019 at 2:07 pm

I’m not a literary guy, so why is Ernest Hemmingway overrated?

Infidel on August 7, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    There’s Hemingway the man and Hemingway the writer. Neither were great.

    In the early 1940s, for example, Hemingway agreed to become a recruit for the KGB in America during Stalin’s rule. This put Hemingway on the FBI’s watch list at the time.

    But let’s forget about the man, severely flawed as he was, and look at a snapshot of his writing, citing an example from “The Old Man and the Sea”:

    “He looked at the sky and saw the white cumulus built like friendly piles of ice cream and high above were the thin feathers of the cirrus against the high September sky.”

    That’s some bombastic bullsheis.

    Hemingway writes like someone who just discovered that clouds can have different formations: the puffy, fluffy kind (cumulus) and the thin, wispy kind (cirrus clouds). So, loading up the sentence with parallel scientific/lay concepts adds nothing and were put there solely to impress an impressionable reader.

    Here’s a simpler, cleaner version that still retains the thought Hemingway originally had before he cluttered it up.

    “He looked high above and saw friendly clouds shaped like piles of ice cream below thin strands of vapor set against the September sky.”

    See what I mean?

    Ralph Adamo on August 8, 2019 at 3:37 pm

Thank you Debbie.
It angers me after how Jews helped the blacks throughout the years of the civil rights movement plus the deaths of the two Jewish boys in Mississippi in 1964.

Paul Gleitman on August 7, 2019 at 5:52 pm

    Itdoesn’tmatter, Paul. Blacks need somone to hate, and white Christianity is far to large and powerful.
    Just look at every black organization and figure head.BLM, BLACK CAUCUS, ALL(!!!!!!!!!!!!!) BLACK WRITERS. BLACK PROFESSORS….NEED I CONTINUE? AND, LET’S NOT FOR GET BDS, …IT IS NOT JUST PALS.



    RICK HEIGHT on August 25, 2019 at 2:48 pm

Superb and thank you Debbie.

PaulGleitman on August 7, 2019 at 6:29 pm

Very interesting, Debbie, and thank you for all the background information. When I saw the headline on one of the many news web sites I peruse over the weekend, I didn’t recall ever hearing of her. I suspected what I eventually wound up reading here in Debbie’s article, and of course, since I’m not an Oprah-phile, or starry eyed citizen of Obama’s World, no wonder!!!

On another note, like Infidel, I am also not a literary guy, and was wondering the same thing about Debbie’s comment on Hemingway.

Alfredo from Puerto on August 8, 2019 at 8:12 am


Superb piece, and worth the wait from your last one! While your negative opinion of Morrison is by no means unique, your going public with it sure the Hell is. I thought Beloved was garbage, and this was later reinforced:

My son studied the book in a college class that had many Black students. Virtually the entire class despised the book. Definitely an affirmative action project, and undeserved Nobel.

It would be fun if someone could ever do an honest survey on the book. My bet is that almost no one truly liked it.

The whole notion of killing your child to “save them” from slavery is shockingly immoral, and represents an entire new level of sin. In Catholic theology, the only unforgivable sins are those involving blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.

One example of this is to reject the virtue of Hope. Even worse would be rejecting the virtue of Hope by proxy, and murdering your two-year-old child to “save” her. Gee, the guilty mother, Sethe seemed to survive slavery, didn’t she?

Making things even worse is the central conceit of the mysterious nature of the woman called “Beloved,” purposely inserted into the work to give people something to endlessly discuss.

Red Ryder on August 8, 2019 at 10:53 am

Thank you Debbie for revealing this fraud. I first became of her during Obama’s administration and even then knew she was a fraud, anti-white, anti-Jew and anti-Israel. And thanks for tasking the Jews who promote her (and others). Amazing how people support others who hate them.

Speaking of frauds, I assume you know that Alex Haley, the author of Roots, was a fraud also. He was sued by the author of “The African” because he plagiarized parts of that book into Roots which should be designated as a fiction book. A judge told Haley during the lawsuit that he should settle the claim against him (he did) because he was facing a perjury charge for lying under oath. We don’t see the TV series of Roots anymore, probably because of this lawsuit.

Another person asked, why is Hemingway overrated? I’ve never read any of his books. However, I did read Haley’s Roots years ago and found his writing to be crap.

Concerned Citizen on August 8, 2019 at 8:08 pm

Debbie great piece as usual. n Deb do you think you’ll return to the Mike Church show? I really miss your movie reviews and your thought of the political environment.

Joe on August 9, 2019 at 11:08 pm

She was a tiresome writer at best who fitted the PC bill. Usual nonsense.

Daphne Samson on August 10, 2019 at 5:23 am

Of course you know this, but just to make sure that all of your readers know. There is no such thing as a Palestinian people, nor nation. This was made up by the Romans. And now to think that the “Palestinians” are descendants of Philistines is ridiculous. Arafat ysh”w at one point attempted to say he was a Jebusite, one of the 7 Canaanite peoples. That didn’t go over very well, so he just killed more Jews instead.

The Pseudostinians

Also see Time Immemorial by Joan Peters for more.

EA: Amen. From Time Immemorial by Joan Peters is a GREAT book and I recommend it to everyone. In fact, it is so good that Alan Dershowitz got caught plagiarizing it for his Israel books. DS

Esser Agaroth on August 10, 2019 at 3:12 pm

Thanks Ralph, that does explain things fully

Infidel on August 10, 2019 at 7:01 pm

Once great universities like Yale have dropped the requirement to study Shakespeare and Milton in order to get a English degree. You can avoid “dead write Englishmen” and graduate with an English degree studying Morrison and others like her. Talk about a worthless and fraudulent degree!

Saar on August 11, 2019 at 6:49 pm

Yes, it does Infidel, explains things fully to me, too. Mr. Adamo has that knack.

Alfredo Padilla on August 11, 2019 at 10:14 pm

Debbie is back from the dead. Nice! Waiting to see your take on Epstein.

DS_ROCKS! on August 13, 2019 at 12:45 pm

Debbie, can you sometime write about Rashida Tlaib and how she managed to get elected? In particular, why did no Republicans run for that seat?

Infidel on August 16, 2019 at 7:33 pm

Good summation on this ridiculous person’s life Debbie. Once again it’s nice to have you back. Also what say you about two other Jew hating anti-Semites in Congress-critters Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.

Ken B on August 20, 2019 at 10:31 am

I’m glad the kkk-nt is dead. I’m done trying to be civil to very uncivilized animals. We need to #StopTurningTheOtherCheek.

El on August 30, 2019 at 8:56 pm

I’m not sure why Debbie has a beef with Ernest Hemingway. I think most people believe he was a good writer.

But anyway, Israel surrendering the Sinai I think was a mistake. Such an accomplished nation could have done so much more with that landmass than Egypt has. Appeasement does not work. When someone hits you, you hit back, and if you win take your prize.
