The libs don't like Tebow coming to the Jets but they love the gangsters who father kids out of wedlock who are on the team. So typical.

I'm sure Delta's decision ultimately had nothing to do with them putting a manger scene between some lady's spread legs as a gag. It's about this guy's views on Jews.

Why does it matter who told them? Their name is attached to the show as an advertiser, and they decided that's not the kind of humor the Atlanta, Georgia-based company wants to be associated with. Maybe there's another airline out there who can step up and who doesn't have a large customer base that might be have an issue with a comedian replacing a woman's genitals with one of their holy symbols. Spirit Air, for example....

Well no one can argue that Hollywood isn't controlled by Jews, I mean that's just plain numbers but the idea that they hate Christianity is obviously in the realm of paranoia.

They run ads on shows with much more offensive content. Why was the Daily Show gag offensive in the slightest?

Delta has kind of been being dickwads towards MSP since they acquired Northwest. Guess this is what they're doing to try to make me stop flying them all together. Kind of a PITA to work around, considering we're still one of their hubs, but it'll be better than doing business with a shiat company.

The liberals were encouraging companies to boycott Rush and now are discouraging companies from boycotting Stewart.

Conservatives were saying it should be ILLEGAL for businesses to boycott Rush and are now cheering businesses that boycott Stewart.

Big difference.

I've been a catholic for 34 years and I just don't understand why I'm supposed to be offended by that gag. I actually watched that episode, coincidentally. The vagina in question was being use as a symbol of its baby-making role, not for something lurid.

You'd think we Catholics would be quite familiar with that of all things.

"It's not enough to get an apology out of Rush Limbaugh. They want him off the air. He was still exercising his First Amendment rights," Keith Appell, the Senior VP for CRC Public Relations, told POLITICO. "Trying to get someone off the air sounds like something out of the old Soviet Union."

MSCO CEO Mark Stevens told Varney and Company about the campaign against his company to stop him from advertising with Rush Limbaugh. He emphatically says that the story isn't getting out, that this isn't a boycott, but rather an organized terrorist action.

I'll admit that I'll probably keep with Delta at least until the end of the year. With gold medallion status, it's hard to give up those sweet, sweet upgrades. I'll comfort my conscience by consuming as many free drinks as possible. Yeah, that's the ticket. A protest!

I'm reluctant to step into a thread like this, but I have a genuine question.

TFA says Donohue is taking credit for Delta's decision, but there is no mention of Delta's comments. Has Delta made any comment regarding Donohue or the Catholic League?

If not, I suspect this is more of an attention whoring moment by Donohue than any actual influence he wields with Delta.

I didn't see anything said by Appell in that article that comes anywhere close to mentioning that the power and force of the government should be used to estop the boycotters. Did I miss something?

And as far as Stevens goes, what he categorized as an "organized terrorist attack" in that interview wasn't the general call to stop advertising on Rush's show--it was the veiled and not-so-veiled threats levied at specific employees at his firm part of the boycott movement. As far as that goes--yeah, it sounds like there might be some legal problems with employing such tactics. I haven't heard of anyone contacting employees at Delta telling them "we have you under surveillance" or something similar.

Initial stories stated the decision has nothing to do wih the Cathloic League, but updated stories have replaced that with a vague statement about not discriminating. They have not said the decision was the direct result of any content they found offensive whatsoever. Mostly, Donahue is claiming victory in a perfect example of "post hoc ergo propter hoc" and.nobody is really challenging him on it.

List of Jewish Actors

The majority of successful actors are of Jewish origin. The amount of jewish actors is not proportional to jewish population in the States.
But not just a difference of a few points, no. It's tens of points of difference, which you can't put on coincidence.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Natalie Portman
Laura Prepon
Daniel Radcliffe
Seth Rogen

Richard Donner
Joel Silver

Jews control Hollywood, the more they deny it, the more hypocritical they look.

Delta isn't that great of an airline anyways, from things I've read. And Delta getting all upset over anything done on the Daily show is as funny as Rush Limbaugh's advertisers all of a sudden upset over things he says. How can these advertisers be shocked over anything either Rush or Jon does?

I must correct myself, as it appears a statement on Delta's Facebook page confirms they are pulling their ads because of this campaign,

We're all impressed by your incredible Google-fu skills. Would you care to magic up a single reference where any of the people you've helpfully listed for us have gone on record as "hating Christianity?"

Because that was kind of the point. That you missed.

By the way, list would be more impressive if it didn't list dead people like River Phoenix, Corey Haim, and Dustin Diamond.

rocky_howard: Jews control Hollywood, the more they deny it, the more hypocritical they look.


Subby didn't specifically imply that was false. He quoted the asshole the article was about and made sure to mention the whole "hating christians" part.

Wait, why are you listing jewish actors? Actor =/= control

Control = Business, and that is something the jewish people have excelled at for ages. I'm not sure if it's their culture in general, or their religion, but hey, they have the necessary drive and the intelligence to do it, more power to them. You sound jealous.

There are enough of any given job in hollywood that are non-jewish as to make your conspiracy theories laughable. Sure, you can get blackballed for being a Mel Gibson styled ranter, but being a generic white/black/atheist/christian does not hurt your chances, but being an asshole does. There's only the talented, the untalented, and the socially unacceptable.(and note, many jewish people that fark up are just as prone to being blacklisted)

They could control hollywood, but they don't, they simply run their businesses.

Christians could control the us, and they certainly try via voting, and even succeed with some notable success. That's what happens when a majority enforces it's morals, that's what it looks like.

No take a look at hollywood again, and tell me the jews control it.

Oh please... It's a reflection of the control, not the control itself. (Although some of those are stars with veto power or producers too)


Control = Business, and that is something the jewish people have excelled at for ages. I'm not sure if it's their culture in general, or their religion, but hey, they have the necessary drive and the intelligence to do it, more power to them. You sound jealous.

Awwww, the "you're just jealous" card. Why would I be jealous?

So you admit that they control Hollywood, got it.

There are enough of any given job in hollywood that are non-jewish as to make your conspiracy theories laughable. Sure, you can get blackballed for being a Mel Gibson styled ranter, but being a generic white/black/atheist/christian does not hurt your chances, but being an asshole does. There's only the talented, the untalented, and the socially unacceptable.(and note, many jewish people that fark up are just as prone to being blacklisted)

It does when they hire jewish people in a exceedingly higher proportion than what the actual jewish population would lead you to think.

They could control hollywood, but they don't, they simply run their businesses.

Which according to you, means they do control Hollywood.

Although you seem to have a weird definition of control. Most powerful producers are Jewish Hence they control the business.
Also, I'm not saying they have a cabal with sinister purposes, that'd be ridiculous, but they could dissipate all these bullshiat theories if they accepted they control the business instead of playing victim. They also control the deli business and you don't see them making a fuss about it.

Truth of the matter is, Jews have held segments of powers disproportional to their population numbers across history (probably due to the reasons you listed), and they've been punished in the past for it. They probably learned to keep quiet about it. I understand them.

Also, I'm going to shamelessly steal a good suggestion from the other thread on this:

If you have the funds, donate a whole bunch of Kellogg's to a Catholic soup kitchen or food pantry. I may not agree with the dogma anymore, but there are a heck of a lot of people doing damn good work - and unlike the single douchebag with a fax machine, most of them won't mention their religion unless asked. They just, you know, want to actually help their fellow man.

And Kellogg's was smart enough to not back down.

Hell, donate to anyone quietly working to help people. But if you want to tell the Catholic League to DIAF, that's a very good way to do it.

As for Delta, well, they sucked anyway. But just another reason to add to the list to never take them if I can absolutely help it. Hell, they'd have to be $100+ cheaper for me to consider it.

Also, labeling you a bigot because of your actions is not ad hominem, it's an apt summation of your posts.

Calling you a pile of infectious human waste, is an ad hominem attack.

You happen to forgo the possibility that people earn their positions by merit. Keep in mind that merit is not by necessity the same as acting ability. People that are a big draw make money, and will continue to be a big draw, and make more money, etc, until it's screwed up.

People with less merit do tend to do much worse than those with. Tori Spelling, say, or Lindsey Lohan.

Sure, some get their start from a bit of nepotism, a figurative foot in the door, but all of the living of the people on your list are very lucerative for reasons not pertaining to their religion/race. What makes them lucerative? People, for a vast variety of reasons, will pay to see them. People will work with them as long as they're not absolute diva's or otherwise bring problems to the table that are not worth it(IE Megan Fox, Mel Gibson[who had a stellar career, until he screwed himself over).

Flew Delta once. Plane was late getting to my airport, late taking off, late landing at midpoint, late taking off from midpoint, and late arriving at destination. If you want me to fly in your sardine can do better. Not advertising on Daily Show? Great way to not reach your target audience.

bongmiester: delta flies a lot of rednecks


This, they're based in Atlanta for most practical purposes, so they're pretty worried what the fundie nuts are thinking. They probably just didn't realize that this particular fundie nut is one that most of their actual religious customers aren't listening to, Donahue is good at fronting like he's important and obscure enough that not everyone immediately recognizes him and realizes his letter campaigns and stuff are fraud.

I can see how they'd make the mistake of taking him seriously, basically.

No one's calling foul. Any company is free to choose whom they will and will not advertise with. But, yes, we are just as immature and stupid as you are. So vote Kodos.

BravadoGT: cameroncrazy1984: BravadoGT: I'm sure Delta's decision ultimately had nothing to do with them putting a manger scene between some lady's spread legs as a gag. It's about this guy's views on Jews.

Who told them about the gag? Interesting as to who they listen to.

Why does it matter who told them? Their name is attached to the show as an advertiser, and they decided that's not the kind of humor the Atlanta, Georgia-based company wants to be associated with. Maybe there's another airline out there who can step up and who doesn't have a large customer base that might be have an issue with a comedian replacing a woman's genitals with one of their holy symbols. Spirit Air, for example....


Guess which Atlanta, Georgia based company I will no longer associate with.

List of Jewish Actors

The majority of successful actors are of Jewish origin. The amount of jewish actors is not proportional to jewish population in the States.
But not just a difference of a few points, no. It's tens of points of difference, which you can't put on coincidence.

Here are some of the most famous ones I can recognize:

Born in the 90s:

Dianna Agron
Rachel Bilson
Alison Brie
Amanda Bynes
Kat Dennings
Drake
Jesse Eisenberg
Andrew Garfield
Joseph Gordon Levitt
Jake Gyllenhaal
Jonah Hill
Scarlett Johansson
Mila Kunis
Shia LaBeouf (C'mooon, explain this guy...)
Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Natalie Portman
Laura Prepon
Daniel Radcliffe
Seth Rogen
EmmyRossum
Jason Segel
Jamie-Lynn Sigler

Tara Strong
Rachel Weisz
Noah Wyle

C'moooon. Let's not even talk about producers/directors

Spielberg
Richard Donner
Joel Silver
etc

Jews control Hollywood, the more they deny it, the more hypocritical they look.


Now give us the list of every non-Jewish actor born in the 1970s or 90s so we can determine the proportions.

Define "of Jewish origin" how many of those are halfies or quarter? How many are practicing?

How many self identify as "jewish"?

I am assuming you have a comprehensive list of actors so you can back upt hat claimight?

Love the subtle inference implicit in your phrasing.

Saying "the Canadians control the NHL" has a very different connotation than "there are lots of Canadians in the NHL".

Your choice of words implies collusion, exclusion of non-Jews and, most ominously, an agenda. When someone argues that the Jews do not "control" Hollywood, they are in fact arguing that there is no collusion, exclusion or agenda, not that they aren't disproportionately represented (an assertion for which I'd need to see some actual stats on before I'll accept it).

I think Stewart's words on this whole issue have been the best byproduct of the whole ordeal.

"I'm not going to censor myself to comfort your ignorance." - Jon Stewart

This defines how i feel about most ignorant people, on both the conservative and the liberal side. They get all pissy over something and think the world HAS to share their views and anger. I will not become outraged because of your outrage at my lack of outrage. I will not stop speaking the truth because it goes against a small minded world view.

For those who complain about Jews in Hollywood.

Jews were banned from classical theater, as from many areas of white, Christian culture.
They were allowed in the 'lesser' arena of vaudeville where they excelled.

Being conservative, classical theater resisted innovation and remains, to this day, very traditional. Vaudeville was poorer, and freer to innovate, leading to film and television.

It's ridiculous for white Christians to get upset about something they caused.

/same thing with Jewish blacklisting from classical publishing & then dominating the 'lesser' pulp and comic book industries

You won't get me arguing that, like William Donahue, is a professional whinypants that spends his time looking for things to be offended by, but has he made comments as incendiary to other religions and sexual orientations as the comments William Donahue made?

Adrienne Rich died. Ever hear of her? Neither have I. But she's on the front page of the New York Times. Why? She was a lesbian poet.

I think it had more to do with the fact that she was a MacArthur Fellow and and National Book Award winner, Bill.

Actually, they're all born in the 80s. Initially I was going to post the 90s actors, but realized they probably weren't too known within the FARK demographic.

Farker Soze: /reads twits

man, this guy really hates lesbians.


Reminds me of a co-worker I once had. Had this obsessive hatred with lesbians. He would always call them "mentally ill" and get angry just talking about them. He didn't like gay men either, but didn't get nearly as worked up about them. Something about a woman not wanting the cawk was a huge blow to his ego.

I finally got him to stop bothering me with the subject when I told him I thought two women going at it was hot. He gave me some dumbstruck look like the slackjaw he was. Fortunately for him, this being Fort Worth and all, he was immediately comforted by his fellow bigots who assured him that, yes, gay people are indeed disturbed people. One of them offered to pray for my soul. I sooooo wanted to offer to watch lesbian porn for her soul, but I probably would have gotten fired for "sexual harrassment".

That same woman had previously asked me where I went to church. When I told her that I didn't go to church, she gave me the same dumbstruck look, as if her mind could not process that thought.

The day I didn't have to work there was a very happy day.

Every Irish person I know (and that's a considerable lot of them) supported the passage of that law. Ireland is the only place I know of where the culture overran the Church, and not the other way around. Being a chatty drunken layabout is fine, but there is little tolerance for kiddie diddlers.
