VIDEO Shows the WORST of America; Reaction Shows America’s Best

By Debbie Schlussel

I am not at all surprised by the video, below, which shows schoolkids horribly tormenting bus monitor Karen Klein on a school bus and bringing this poor woman, who is 68 years old, to tears. In our Facebook/Twitter/YouTube culture, anything goes, and I experience this kind of bullying and attacks every day from Muslims, Polish Jew-haters, and ESPECIALLY “adults” who claim to be conservatives. Prominent “conservatives,” like Michelle Malkin, praise those who act this way and even hire them to be editors of her new self-masturbation site, Twitchy, which today praised violent, anti-Semitic, obscenity-laden Muslim attacks on me. (The funny thing is, if you look at her two immature managing editors, one of whom was recently fired by David Horowitz, you’d have plenty of fodder for bullying. One of them definitely puts the cow in coward. So they aren’t ones to talk, but they haven’t let that stop them.) The treatment of Ms. Klein was despicable and shows the absolute worst in America. But kids today are taught that this is how you treat people. They are taught to have zero decency and no respect whatsoever for authority (you don’t learn these things watching “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”). And that teaching happens at home, so you can’t blame teachers and bus monitors who then must sit there and take it because the law prevents them from doing what they really should in response.


But America’s response to what these disgusting kids did to Karen Klein is the best of America. Generous Americans who felt for this lady and her experience in this awful ordeal donated over $300,000 to Ms. Klein, apparently to send her on a vacation of her choosing. I hope she has a good time. She seems like she must be a very kind lady, just sitting there and taking this from these kids. I would’ve walloped them. Legally, it would have been self-defense, since they attacked her. If I behaved this way, my parents would have spanked me so hard. And, frankly, she’s too nice. She said she won’t press charges against these cretinous “kids.” Big mistake. They need to see that there are serious consequences for this kind of behavior or they’ll keep doing it. And they’ll never learn how to behave or have an iota of respect for anyone.

Check Out the Videos, Including an Interview . . .

Even though they are juveniles, I hope the names of these kids are publicized. Most bullies do not change. They will be despicable people forever, and the world needs to know who they are.

One of the great things about being jewish is that you can laugh at yourself. That gives you the power to laugh off all the jokes people make about you when they try to be cruel and only make you happier.

Speaking of which, this is the most horrible joke I know. If you don’t want to read it, look away now!


What’s the worst part about being black and jewish?

They make you sit in the back of the oven.

Debbie Dear,

isn’t it time to update your photo?

really? on June 22, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Awww, did I hurt your delicate sensibilities by posting mean jokes about pollack and muzzies? Guess what? I don’t care. Never did. Never will. It’s the kumbaya-like attitude of fools like Miranda Rose Smith that prevented 6 million Jews from defending themselves. Its fools like her now, that have caused rockets to rain down on Israel, Jews to be demonized, and anti-semitism to flourish. Unfortunately, Jews (and non-Jews) with attitudes like that end up being protected, defended and saved by Jews (and non-Jews) like me. Here’s a suggestion to all you easily offended cowards: how ’bout I just watch as evil destroys your pathetic existance, instead of helping you? People that wanna live free of evil will just fight for each other, the others can be left to their own devices. You made your bed, no you sleep in it. Idiots.

    What does disliking tacky humor-in public, on the Internet-a little of it is O.K. in private-have to do with Jewish self-defense? One of the reasons that I DESPISE the kumbaya crowd is PRECISELY because they ignore the rockets hitting S’derot and oompare the Israelis to the Nazis when the Israelis shoot back. I’ve said so, in postings right here on this blog. I live in Israel and my heart aches with admiration and sympathy and respect for the I.D.F. soldiers.

Sometime back Bormann’s bones were dug up in a rail yard along with a Nazis doctor.

I am so happy for the outpouring of support for this lady. I hope she can be happy for the rest of her days. She seems like a very nice person and is like many of our grandparents. Parents just don’t “parent” their kids anymore.

If I was caught on tape doing this – oh I can even think of what would have happened. The worst thing would be how ashamed my parents would have been and would have taken it as a extremely poor reflection on them. Families have no pride anymore.

To all the Polish posters: my family name ends with “ski”, my father was born in Tarnowskie Góry, Poland. Though a Jew he survived the war mainly because he received help from a Polish non-Jew. However, his father, my grandfather, was murdered by Polish non-Jews while seeking refuge.

And, they also almost got their hands on my father. Indeed, once they did manage to grab him. One of them was ready to cut his throat with his sickle (it was harvest time). But the fact that one of the Polish non-Jews was berating the intention of that person allowed my father to get away in the commotion.

Let’s face it, most of the supposedly “pro-Polish” posters here have got it wrong. Debbie never said all Poles were complicit in the Holocaust. She only pointed out (correctly) that many if not most Polish non-Jews at the very least were quite happy to look the other way while Jews were being exterminated in Poland. Unfortunately, large numbers were willing to be active accomplices.

As a proud national of my country I can understand that this would be troublesome to proud Polish nationals. However, it happens to be true. It’s not the whole truth but it is part of the truth. The sooner you accept that the sooner you can put it behind you.

As for those “pro-Polish” posters who just can’t resist proving Debbie right, go right ahead, you’re only hanging yourself by your own petard.

    My sentiments exactly.

Debbie is spot on as usual.

It’s so sad to see more and more feedback letters dealing with subject with racial remarks. Believe it or not, four years ago the topic of racism was a dead horse. But a nation’s citizens are most unlikely to rise about their leaders, so that’s what to expect for the next few months, I guess.
