Boycott Ted

I didn't watch the Academy Awards on the grounds that movies and self-congratulation don't interest me  but of course I heard about Seth McFarlen's caddish performance.After seeing all the complaints on Twitter, I caught the best bits on YouTube.

All and all, I think the unhappy people missed the point.

"We Saw your Boobs", for instance, was (a) funny(!) and (b) framed by the Captain Kirk intro as a "really dumb song performed by an idiot with poor judgement." So if you agree with (b) and are upset about it, well, jokes on you. The Rhianna remark was a shot at her dumb, brutal boyfriend not an endorsement of domestic violence. And since when is it not OK to mock a racist idiot like Mel Gibson?

However, there was one bit that didn't sit well with YourFavoriteBlogger. I am speaking of Ted's casual antisemitism.

Now, I understand Ted is a fictional creation, and that being a jackass is part of his shtick. And I understand that this fact is suppose to kasher the performance. But no sale.

The myth that Jews own Hollywood  is ugly because its used by  the likes of Toby Katz and Fat Billy Donahue to suggest that Jews (or in the case of Toby, "Jews she doesn't like") are anti-family and anti-values. We don't need it trotted out for a cheap laugh in front of a billion viewers.

7 WCLH ( Format: Cοllege Rаdio Wilκes Univerѕity's radio station plays mostly alternative rock, but Mondays have seemingly always been "Metal Mondays. The line comes off the boat automatically once it hits a fish, which means that the user can catch a fish of virtually any size. A MOBILE APP GIVES THE STATION A DIRECT MARKETING CHANNEL TO COMMUNICATE WITH THEIR LISTENERS.
