This fellow Shapiro has previously declared that the Obama administration is "openly anti-Semitic," said that President Obama himself "embodies all the personal characteristics of a fascist leader," and compared White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel to concentration camp prisoners who worked for the Nazis [Media Matters]
So, to put it succinctly, Ben Shapiro is not a smart person, a careful writer, or a nuanced thinker. He's just a jerk who likes to throw hand grenades. Which brings us to his latest article, a collection of poorly formed insults directed at Orthodox Jews like me. A sampling:
Jews who vote for Obama are, by and large, Jews In Name Only (JINOs). They eat bagels and lox; they watch "Schindler's List"; they visit temple on Yom Kippur -- sometimes. But they do not care about Israel. Or if they do, they care about it less than abortion, gay marriage and global warming.The flip side of Benny's "argument" goes like this:
Jews who voted against Obama are, by and large, Jews In Name Only (JINOs). They eat bagels and lox; they watch "Schindler's List"; they visit temple on Yom Kippur -- sometimes. But they do not care about Israel. Or if they do, they care about it less than matching fundamentalist, anti-science Christians stride for stride on abortion, gay marriage, and global warming.Stereotypes and reckless generalizations are fun! Shall I continue? Ok, I think I will:
Jews who voted against Obama hate babies, and beat small puppies. They also think Arabs are subhuman, and desire nothing less than the complete eradication of the Palestinian people. Plus, they view peacemakers as effete, and because their own penises are small tend to lust over macho displays of foot stomping violence.Now, given that I'm so great at the game, why can't I be like Ben Shapiro and win a well-paying gig at some raggedy website like TownHall?
