/Are all Jews now evil because they rioted too?

StarshipPooper: Actually, what would happen if there was a war with them and the Amish? Could they tell each other apart? Don't they wear similiar outfits? That's what always confused me about civil wars in places like Yugo and Africa. How the hell do you tell the Serbs and Croats apart? They freaking look the same. Or the Hootoos from the Tootoos, they freaking look the same. Who is the damn enemy? Do you just kill everyone?

It's very easy to differentiate a hassidim and a amish

Just put a bagel-dispensing machine in front of them and offer each of them a dollar

But protesters didn't heed the warnings and ran through the streets, some yelling, "Nazi Germany!" at the officers.

Yea, okay. Good thing to yell, since those officers were responsible for the persecution of the Jews and all.
 
2006-04-05 09:30:48 AM  
"License and registration please."
"Yes, officer."

Problem solved.

Especially when pulled over for breaking the law. (At least I assume, as TFA makes no mention that he was using a phone headset.)

-One minute he is talking on a cell phone, and the next he can't hear a cop...

-He is too old frail and deaf to be handled roughly, but not so old frail and deaf to cruise around town chatting on a cell phone and acting all thugish to a cop.

-When black people form angry mobs in the street and set fire to cop cars, they call it a riot, and tear gas them. When Chussidics do it, it is called a "wild protest" and cops shine lights on them from helicopters till they disperse. I love new york!

AqueousBoy: Remember, if anything happens that insults your particular demographic, be sure to riot and set fire to whatever you can.

And be sure to do it in your own neighborhood, thereby damaging yourself the most.

Why wasn't he wearing his lapel pin? Oh, nevermind, wrong blown out of proportion discrimenation event.
 
2006-04-05 09:32:34 AM  
The problem with this story, of course, is that the community seems more concerned about reacting violently to the insult that one of theirs was arrested than talking about whether he broke the law or not, and if there was any racist selective enforcement at play.

Ex-actly.

Corvusnex: Were they throwing Matzoh-tov cocktails at the police?

/Thanks, I'll be here all night

No.
They were Mazeltov cocktails.

Although only partially appropriate to the topic, I cannot believe no one has quoted "Blues Brothers".

"The Jew uses the black as muscle...against...YOU. What are you going to do about it, WHITEY??"

Still, no one is above the law, whether or not they control every facet of our lives.

/Oy and the rioting, and the police with their batons, and the 'ow, it hurts me...GLAVIN!

Persepolis - Malum...Anti-semetic Troll

Persepolis, while I agree that Malum is a racist troll, I have to take exception with the term 'Anti-semetic'.

Technically, being an Anti-Semite is being against anyone who speaks the semitic languages or is of semitic ancestory. That includes Jews and Muslims. Somehow, in our society, it means just Anti-Jew now.

The hutus and tutsis all had government issued ID cards with that information included. So as long as the hutus controlled the government, it was pretty easy to track down the tutsis.

But what if you stand them by the vending machine after sundown on a Friday? Then how do you tell the difference?
 
2006-04-05 09:36:30 AM  
Tatsuma: did they use excessive force on an elderly man?

That's a question for the justice system to handle, not rioters. If the man's life and limb were truly endangered, I might see some moral justification for the kids who intervened. (Even though they'd better be damn sure of what they're doing, because they're martyring themselves and are sure to end up at least in prison or at worst, dead.

But rioting? That's just third world thinking. That's what you do when you have no functioning justice system, and you cannot tolerate the living conditions one minute longer. It's for when you have nothing left to do. It's a last resort for disenfranchised, threatened, and desperate people who would rather risk death than keep living that way.

You really think this was one of those situations? Or was it an inappropriate show of outrage by a community united in anger over a perceived insult?

I hate rioting of all kinds (as opposed to peaceful protest). It's the greatest failure a lawful society can experience, and it is not something to be taken lightly by anybody.
 
2006-04-05 09:36:41 AM  
Yeah, my wife and I saw this on the news this morning and I think the first words out of her mouth were "well that was surreal."

I'm not usually quick to defend the NYPD these days, but the hearing-aid shtick is such a stretch. Look dude, you got pulled over by the freakin' cops, you know what to do. You know they want to see your license and registration. These are not abstract concepts.

As though the cops were on a mission that night to take down some holocaust survivors. Come on, guys. Worst reason to set fire to your own neighborhood ever.

WWII ended a long time ago, the victim mentality has to go. The mob mentality is never right, for anybody.

Lots of people get roughed up by the cops in NYC, even white people, but flipping out before the facts are in is never a good deia.

Refusing to cooperate how?

We don't beat up old people or kill young children just because they happen to be arabs.

2006-04-05 09:44:40 AM  
Tatsuma: from your own link to wikipedia:

The word antisemitic (antisemitisch in German) was probably first used in 1860 by the Jewish scholar Moritz Steinschneider in the phrase "antisemitic prejudices" (German: "antisemitische Vorurteile"). Steinschneider used this phrase to characterize Ernest Renan's ideas about how "Semitic races" were inferior to "Aryan races." Because Renan's use of the term "Semitic" did refer to the broader racial and/or linguistic group, including not just Jews but Arabs and others, the term anti-Semitic, as it is widely used today, is actually a misnomer.

so... uh...

This has nothing to do with WWII. That's like me beating up black dude and saying, slavery was over 300 years ago, lose the victim mentality. That's just obsurd.

I could never beat up a black dude.

I always support equality between all peoples, but I rarely hear of it, so I'm just calling it how I see it. The rioters clearly had no agenda.

Cops said Schick ... became belligerent and refused to hand over his license and registration, leading officers to arrest and handcuff him.

FMOFL

German political agitator Wilhelm Marr coined the related German word Antisemitismus in his book "The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism" in 1879. Marr used the phrase to mean Jew-hatred or Judenhass, and he used the new word antisemitism to make hatred of the Jews seem rational and sanctioned by scientific knowledge. Marr's book became very popular, and in the same year he founded the "League of Anti-Semites" ("Antisemiten-Liga"), the first German organization committed specifically to combatting the alleged threat to Germany posed by the Jews, and advocating their forced removal from the country.


That's two paragraphs under that. The official term.

Semite Pronunciation Key (smt)
n.

1. A member of a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the Near East and northern Africa, including the Arabs, Arameans, Babylonians, Carthaginians, Ethiopians, Hebrews, and Phoenicians.
2. A Jew.
3. Bible. A descendant of Shem.

adj : of or relating to or characteristic of Semites; "Semite peoples" [syn: Semite, Semitic] n : a member of a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the Middle East and northern Africa [syn: Semite]

How about waiting to find out what really happened, rather than getting caught up in one version of conflicting eyewitness accounts?

If you think you see something that looks like brutality, but not seriously life-or-limb threatening (as all accounts so far seem to indicate), get as much info as you can. Talk to other witnesses. Think about it. Then make a complaint. Go to the media. Advocate to politicians. Organize a protest.

Jumping straight to mob "us and them" thinking and mob violence is third world. It's as third world as it gets.

We're trying to have a freaking civilization here, and people need to use the rights and freedoms they already have before throwing it all away at the drop of a hat for some gleeful anarchy. That's just stupid.

How is it always about Jews running Hollywood, banks and everything else. But no one ever says anything about being funny? If you're going to throw out stereotypes, throw them all out.
