Job Creator: It's just a certain feeling I have as a Jew," said the 51-year-old real estate manager, explaining his remark. "And my attitude is that -- not all Arabs -- but, in general, ... they want to kill every Jew."

Kessler said of a Jewish person marrying into such a family: "It's like a betrayal."


yeah but weiner is the REAL racist here for thinking that was a racist comment

Not a racist, but certainly at least a sociopath for thinking he could get away with so many other things.

Headso: heh, I can't believe someone who is on record as supporting a philanderer has the lack of shame to come in here and make fun of wiener supporters. But, that's republicans for ya...


It depends on the options. Democracy doesn't always allows us to pick the best candidate. I didn't support Sanford in the primary. I was against him running. But when he won it, he was the best for the job. Anyone supporting Weiner in the primary though is really not thinking clearly.

THX 1138: Agreed. I really liked his approach and passion toward his role in government. It really stood out among the bland masses. Too bad he turned out to be a dick in his personal life.


That's why people love me, I'm a nice guy in real life but I'm passionate about politics.

Rwa2play: And that automatically disqualifies you from judging Weiner. When did Weiner skip out on his duties to serve his constituency to get his rocks off?


When has Weiner ever declined to get his rocks off? Apparently any woman who was willing he'd throw some cock pics at her.

js34603: Which has nothing to do with him being absolutely in the right here. I don't care what he's done in his political career, he's got the right to defend his wife from insults hurled by random dbag in a deli.


What Weiner said:

Man:"You're a real scumbag, Anthony." 

Weiner:"Wow, very nice. Very nice. That's a charming guy right there."

Man:"You're married to an Arab."

Weiner:"That's very nice, in front of children you use that language."

Man: You have a nerve to even walk around in public-

Weiner: Oh yeah, and you're a perfect person?

Man: I'm not perfect, but I didn't do what you did.

Weiner: You're my judge? You're my judge? What rabbi taught you that? What rabbi taught you that you're my judge?

Man: You're fine. You talk to God and work out your problems, but stay out of the public eye. That's the difference.

Weiner: That's up to you to judge, my friend. I don't take my judgments to you and I don't judge you.

Man: You're a bad example for the people.

Weiner: That's your judgment?

Man: No, that's obvious.

Weiner: By the way, I've fought very hard for this community and delivered more than you will ever in your entire life.

Man: You never delivered anything for me or any of these people.

Weiner: You know nothing. You know nothing. Your ignorance is being shown to the entire world.

Notice no defense of his wife is actually made. He chides the guy initially for his language and then defends himself. Maybe the transcript I'm using is wrong but to say he defended his wife, is a complete lie.

That "Second City" thing really gets to people.

"You're a bad example for the people.
Weiner: That's your judgment?
Man: No, that's obvious."

THIS. So true. Notice how everything turns into a dick-measuring contest with Weiner. What does how much "he's done for this community" matter in this context? Kessler isn't running for office and saying the taxpayers should trust him with hundreds of millions of dollars, now is he?

Something is telling me he was talking about a very specific community, one that Kessler doesn't seem to want sullied by Arabs.

jyoders19: I don't believe the guy said ANYTHING about Weiner's wife. I just don't. Weiner's a pathological liar and I don't put it past him to make this up and say it IN A PRESS CONFERENCE because he knows it's his word against the other guy's. I think this is a pattern of Weiner using that poor woman as a shield for his selfish, arrogant and perverted behavior. It's certainly not the first time he's used her that way.


Did you watch the video referenced in the article.  I heard the "married to an arab" line pretty clearly.  Right before Wiener called him a jackass.

I think he's a joke and all, and that's why I've found his campaign to be great entertainment, but the dude did say it.

The second one it's in. The first one where they started filming outside it wasn't included in. The CNN story with it is posted somewhere above.

Weiner should be commended for not punching the guy.

//I blow up all the time did anybody care? no!

Job Creator: jyoders19: That's a different camera. That just wasn't in the original video. Thanks for providing it.

You're welcome.  The Kornblut video wasn't as complete as the Weiner campaign video.  And underscores why campaigns should always hire a video grapher.  He had that video out soon after the Kornblut video and quickly the tone changed to what a putz the heckler was.  Weiner is a putz too, but his campaign staff was right on top of this controversy to where Weiner might gain some votes out of this.

Words like this coming from an Orthodox Jew are not unknown in NYC.  Lots of New Yorker's like me are tired of their attitudes towards anyone not of their faith.  YMMV, NAWJALT, etc etc


Not just the Orthodox, but the Satmar Hasidim as well.  They're not different from the Southern Baptists in particular or Evangelical Christians in general

Exactly and frankly, the asshole that started yelling at Weiner can go fark himself.
