Obama Chef: Jews Should Vote For Obama b/c He Eats Hummus, Has Latkes @ Passover Seder

By Debbie Schlussel

If Person A eats a burger like you do, does that mean he automatically has your and America’s best interests at heart? Only if you’re a moron. When they say, “you are what you eat,” that only applies to your physical condition, not your ideological one.

And, so, I had a good laugh at the pathetic attempt by Barack Obama’s White House chef to get Jews to vote for Barack Hussein Obama because he eats hummus (so did Arafat, Bin Laden, etc.–and they also went to the bathroom, like I do; wow, so much in common!) and has a lot of “kosher-style” (which means nothing) food at the White House. Oh, and because he eats potato pancakes a/k/a “latkes” (a food eaten on Chanukah) at his Passover Seder (wrong holiday for latkes, dude). That’s like telling us he hunts for Easter Eggs on Christmas. I couldn’t care less what Obama eats. He could eat all the Jewish foods in the world or a lot of pork and bacon. What some guy eats is a pretty stupid fact on which to base your vote for the next leader of the Free World. But it shows how desperate the Obama campaign has become in this very close election. And how far-left Israeli newspapers are desperate to help him, as the vast majority of 300,000 Jewish U.S. citizens living in Israel plan to vote for Romney (poll after poll shows this). They are also concerned because a good number of American Jews who voted for Obama will vote for Romney this time around and this will affect Obama’s chances to win states like Florida.


Pita & Circuses: “Jews, Vote for Me b/c I Eat Hummus!”

Ha’aretz, the left-wing, self-hating Israeli newspaper tries to get our votes via appetite, since Obama policy ain’t the way to go. Columnist Vered Guttman, obviously in the tank for the Obamas, reports:

President Barack Obama – as his critics often like to remind Jewish voters – has not visited Israel since 2008. But, if he misses the region’s flavors, Obama needs to go no farther than the White House kitchen.

“We make our own hummus,” said White House executive chef Cristeta (Cris) Comerford, in a special interview with Modern Manna last week. “It’s a very wonderful dish, very nutritious.”

And they make it quite often, for “every occasion pretty much,” according to Comerford. “We have so many vegetables in there [the White House kitchen garden] that we need some good dips with and hummus is one of our go to dips.”

So, if Obama loves hummus it must mean he loves us Israelis too!

[Emphasis added.]

What the bleep?! Does this mean that if Obama likes spaghetti and pizza, he loves the Italians? Absurd. Dumb. Just plain idiotic.

“We did a lot of the kosher-style canapes, we had salmon, tahini, hummus, home-made pita and a lot of Middle Eastern dishes,” said Comerford. “It was not strict kosher, it was a kosher-style menu.”

Who gives a bleep? The guy also ate dogs and snakes. Why isn’t that in this article? Why do I need to care about what the President of the United States eats, when his policies have ruined America for not just four years, but irreparably damaged the country for many more beyond that?

But, wait, there’s more:

Every year since taking office, President Obama has hosted a Passover Seder for a small group of friends and staffers, and Chef Comerford enjoys preparing classic Jewish dishes for the meal, such as beef brisket and potato latkes using old family recipes that the friends bring with them.

Again, Jews do NOT eat “potato latkes” on Passover. We eat that on Chanukah. Not that this has anything to do with the price of tea in China on how anyone–Jew or not–should vote on Tuesday for Prez.

But it reminds me about how Obama gets everything perfectly right when it comes to Muslims and Islam and hosting his Ramadan Iftar dinners at the White House. And, yet, for Jews–he only likes and associates with the self-hating Jew In Name Only (JINO) kind–he has a non-kosher Seder at which he holds the Haggadah (ceremonial Seder book) upside down and serves the food from a completely different holiday. Because he, frankly, doesn’t like us or Christians. It’s all about the followers of Mohammed.

I wonder if he’s planning to put a crescent atop the White House Christmas tree, this year. Wouldn’t be surprised.

I’m voting for Mitt Romney, regardless of what food he plans to serve at the White House. I heard he drinks water, and so do I.

I happen to have spent the fist night of Sukkot in a Sukkah at the house of a Sephardic Jewish family. The father is from Iran (The Mother was born in France but her family had recently arrived from Algeria due to the revolution in the early 1960s). Some of the food their was Iranian.

I can guarantee you that this family does not support the Iranian government just because we had Iranian food.

Hummus is an Arab dish. It is to Arabs what Tortillas are to Mexicans. Jews who lived in Arab lands naturally ate Arab food(hummus, falafel, tabouli, kibbe, etc…) Jews who lived in eastern Europe ate the eastern Europe cuisine, etc…

A: FALSE. Jews invented hummus and Arabs shoplifted it, like every other part of their culture and the Muslim religion. Here’s the truth on the history of hummus, which originated in ancient ISRAEL:

Cristeta Comerford is a Filipina Catholic. She knows from kosher food like Liberace knew from vaginas.

I do not care if he ate kosher food everyday. He still hates Jews, and wants to see Israel destroyed. And I have a train in Europe taking you to a vacation camp at Auschwitz or Treblinka for any Jew who can’t see those simple truths.

And for those who might be offended by these sentiments, kish min tuchus.

Sooo .. that’s why the man stinks.

(eat hummus and find out)

Beef brisket? O my!!! Does that mean that Mrs.Obama eats red meat? For shame!

An old Yiddish saying about BHO – “may he vaksn as tzibale – mit kop in drerd”

Whoo-hoo! Vote for an Australian who chows on vegemite and meat pies and drinks Victorian Bitter! So didgy-ridge! S’thruth!

The only thing dumber than the peeps who pimp this crap are the dopes who think it’s a valid reason to vote for them.

And when it comes to Jews, it’s really (in the end) not very funny since the truth about Obama-Putin & Israel is sobering.

Debbie, as always…I agree with every thing you say about President Zero. Just as an aside however…matzah meal latkes are a favorite at our house during Passover. The recipe was handed down by my Ukranian bubie. But I doubt that’s what President Zero was talking about.

Maobama also likes dog meat.
Anyone seen Bo lately?

In Barry’s defense, he got the latke recipe from an unimpeachable source:

I have no idea what the Yiddish comments mean. That’s not the language of the majority of the World’s Jews. Same with “brisket.” Actually brisket is a cut, not a recipe but what is meant here is Eastern European cuisine, not “Jewish” cuisine. I have no idea what that tastes like. I use the brisket cut to make “hamin” on Shabbat with lots of spices and hot pepper.

Arabs didn’t “steal” hummus. It’s an indigenous food of the region. Everyone eats it and always have. It’s “Jewish” food here the way “gefilte fish” is in Poland. Since Jews arrived later who was the first to eat a carp in old Warsaw? Dumb comments by the chef and dumb article.

    Italkit, there no shame in being Ashkenazi.

    skzion on November 4, 2012 at 9:59 am

      Did I say there was? But there’s also no shame in being Sephardic although plenty of Ashkenazim try to do that to us. I have no need to understand Yiddish and I was merely pointing out that whatever points the posters were trying to make, I, and many other JEWS, didn’t understand. There’s also nothing wrong with Eastern European food. I had a Ukrainian FIL who was an outstanding cook but it’s not my preference, although on cold nights in winter, a few latkes do hit the spot. I use rice flour because it’s gluten free.

      Italkit on November 4, 2012 at 12:52 pm

        Well, I think you did imply there was shame in it.

        The point here is that Hussein can’t even get his pandering right, and most of America’s Jews are stupid enough not to notice.

        skzion on November 4, 2012 at 2:16 pm

          Well, that’s your problem and it is an Ashkenazi tendency to always be apologizing for being Jews. There’s always this “embarassment” and trying to get the World to like you. It explains a lot of the politics of the Ashkenazi establishment in Israel. Stand tall and be a proud Jew. Stop always worrying if some Arabs “stole” your hummus or some goy took your laktes. Start knowing who you are.

          Italkit on November 4, 2012 at 3:14 pm

          “Well, that’s your problem and it is an Ashkenazi tendency to always be apologizing for being Jews.”

          If you really believe in this Ashkenazi “tendency,” then your attempts to sling guilt are doubly immoral because you are placing a stumbling block before the blind in taking advantage of a weakness.  In fact, you should applaud my near indifference to being liked–and my willingness to call you out on your prejudice.

          By the way, your response has just added more evidence for my original interpretation that you were trying to shame Ashkenazi Jews.

          I think you are now trying to excuse your own unkind behavior toward fellow Jews.  Please stop.

I’m sick of this term “Jews from Arab lands” as if we suddenly arrived there with a separate culture. Um, NO! We were always there and always had our culture. Some of us dispersed to the Iberian Peninsula and thereafter thru out Europe. Some went up into Eastern Europe thru Turkey but we were always a presence within Greater Arabia and other Muslim lands. It wasn’t until 1948 that we were told to leave completely.

since when hummus is an Israeli dish lol
