....she has Indian and Pakistani parents? If you think those are "arab" then you've got issues and need to take a basic geography lesson

When you're using the word derisively and dripping with invective during an attack, it's clear what the intent is.

You're presumably an adult, this shouldn't be a hard concept for you.

After finding out more about this heckler, I can't fault Weiner.  The heckler did an interview where he said that he considers Weiner's marriage "sleeping with the enemy."  I would think less of Weiner if he went flaccid.

Go to a Korean person and call them "Japanese" for maximum lulz.

"Anthony, you're a scumbag...married to an Arab."

You don't see a problem with that?

FTFA: Weiner's shouting match with the voter was not his first heated moment of this mayoral campaign. In August, he got into another intense exchange with Republican candidate George McDonald at a debate. He has also been dogged by stories of his "intensity," including allegations he once threw a salad at a wall after getting upset with a staffer during his time in Congress.

That is not what is meant by "tossed the salad of a staffer".

So now he is worried about his wife's honor?  Really?  Boy aint that rich..

TheDumbBlonde: What's 'vile and racist' about 'arab'?


In the Orthodox Jewish community non-"pure" Jews are less than human. The guy calling his wife an Arab is basically saying "Your wife is a whore and you aren't Jewish enough."

Not a fan of Weiner -- not this one, anyway -- but good on him for coming back at this passive-aggressive a#$hole.

When you are implying that somebody did something wrong by marrying an Arab, that is saying something vile and disgusting about them and their spouse. It is saying that being an Arab is vile and disgusting. If you don't see that there is something wrong with you.

Except he wasn't.  He was lying and furthermore using that lie as an insinuation that marrying an Arab (which Weiner didn't do anyway) would somehow be a disgraceful and immoral thing to do.

Why don't you walk up to a Muslim man with his wife in a burka. Tell him "you are scum and you are married to a Jew". I'm sure he'll explain the concept of context to you.

So Arab is an insult?


I am a German/Irish mix who tans very easy and has dark hair, can I be insulted when someone assumes I am a latino?

used in the context that this man was using it, yes it was an insult.

if I called you a kraut/mick bastard, you might wear it as a badge of honor. If i say to your wife/husband that they're a traitor for marrying an illegal (because you look latino) than it's an insult.

Perhaps his login is a warning?

In any case I actually feel for Weiner for once on this situation, but this just further proves this man has no business trying to be in politics.

I don't recall my specific words regarding Sanford winning but I do believe I felt he was the better candidate in the general election. I don't recall ever saying he was a great candidate.

somedude210: used in the context that this man was using it, yes it was an insult.


The guy was a horrible racist. Not that he is extremely racist. He's just not very good at it. But yea, he used it as an insult. Weiner's response though wasn't good no matter what the guy led the argument with.

Looking at the video I think I see where the fellow got angry.  Weiner actually asked the counter people  notto give him a discount.  What kind of Jew is that?

If someone cheats on his wife or flirts with another woman, you're then allowed to call the wife a whore and make racial and sexist statements about her.

(this is what Fark Independents believe!)
 
2013-09-05 10:41:40 AM
I kind of side with Wiener on this one. Gotta love the irony of wearing the kippah and being such an asshole.

It was meant as an insult but taking it as an insult also says something about the person who is insulted.

Let me try another example, if someone asks me if I am gay and I get really insulted by that it means that in my mind being gay is a bad thing.

Yes.  Since it was meant as an insult, It says the listener possesses the skills to accurately interpret the speaker's intended subtext.

Yeah and I am sure that Weiner was completely and only upset with his wife being called an Arab, and that he would have had no problem with this douche calling him a scumbag without mentioning his wife.  That he wasn't latching onto the one thing that he could grab hold of to have the moral high ground, protecting his wife.

Wiener hid behind his wife's skirts when his second texting peccadillo was discovered. Now he is the noble white knight charging to her rescue? Sue I'll buy that!

I'm guessing the gentleman in question believes America is engaged in a holy struggle, that Muslims belong in camps or dead,and that Wiener is committing treason against both America and Jews by being the (shiatty) husband of a (hot) Muslim.  Wiener may be a philandering asshole but I don't blame him for losing his cool about this crap.
 
2013-09-05 11:18:57 AM
 "Well, you know that Mr. Obama Mrs Weiner  is an MuslimArab." Well, the correct answer is, she is not an MuslimArab, she's an ChristianIndiand. SHe's always been an ChristianIndian. But the really right answer is, what if she is? Is there something wrong with being an  MuslimArab in this country? The answer's no, that's not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old MuslimArab-American kid believing that he or she could be president? ... This is not the way we should be doing it in America.
 
2013-09-05 11:20:57 AM
I'm still angry at the Weiner. He was the kind of firebrand Democrat we needed and instead decided to go off and fark around behind his wife's back, and then have it come out that he was still doing it a year later after his disgraced resignation.
