So fucking crazy. Are they complain now that the Washington Post wasn’t stress a persons jewishness enough.

The words “too Jewish” are put in quotes in this headline, but the Washington Post obituary never once uses those words.

re: #2 Charles Johnson

I second the motion - this is not a real person posting - it’s a bot so ban it.

5 Glenn Beck's Grand Unifying Theory of Obdicut  Tue, Feb 5, 2013 1:28:24pm
The 1,304-word article by Post reporter Paul Schwartzman notes that the former congressman and mayor was “the son of a Jewish immigrant furrier” and that he campaigned “alongside Bess Myerson, the first Jewish woman to win the Miss America title.” The obituary also says that “during the 1988 presidential campaign, he [Koch] caused a kerfuffle when he said Jews would be ‘crazy’ to vote for the Rev. Jesse Jackson because Jackson had voiced support for Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.”

Sounds like they stressed his Jewishness to me.

Oh, FFS—what ridiculous nonsense.

I think the point that CAMERA is trying to make is that the Obit leaves out a lot of the stuff that should have been included. That they leave out the stuff that might have made him “too Jewish”.

I can see you disagreeing, but they do make a good case.

Even so, the obit doesn’t cross any red or even yellow lines. Thus CAMERA comes across as trolling on this one. Thus I downding.
