The Week’s Most Horrible, Deplorable, and Adorable Headlines
CONCENTRATION CAMP ROMANCE NOVEL RAISES EYEBROWS
Is there anyone among us who doesn’t enjoy curling up in front of the fireplace to read a right good ripping concentration-camp romance novel? The advertising blurb for Kate Breslin’s schlocky For Such a Time describes this tear-jerking death-camp love saga as:
A powerful retelling of the story of Esther during Wwii: Blond and blue-eyed Jewess Hadassah Benjamin must save her people—even if she cannot save herself.
The storyline involves the Hebraic heroine falling in love with a Nazi guard and eventually converting to Christianity. Apparently trying to increase sales among Taki’s Mag readers, critics have deemed the book “antisemitic, violent, and dangerous…deeply offensive and insensitive.”
Writing in the Arizona Jewish Post (who knew there were Jews in Arizona?), some yenta describes the book as a “Christian inspirational romance novel”:
I find it offensive. A Nazi guard who literally holds the heroine’s life in his hands and who takes advantage of his position by constantly groping her isn”t romantic, it’s disgusting. It’s rape.
Novelist Anne Rice says that part of the backlash is rooted in the idea that “Christians should not write novels involving Jews or topics involving Jews.”
Perhaps the critics have a point”matters of such historical gravity as the Holocaust can only be tastefully addressed by Jewish artists such as Jerry Lewis.
SMACKDOWN!!!: TRUMP V. BLACK LIVES MATTER
Superstar billionaire Aryan populist Donald Trump said tiny rumpled Jewish socialist presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders displayed “weakness” for allowing a pair of squalling, swivel-headed female water buffalo claiming to represent the racist hate group Black Lives Matter to shut down his recent Seattle appearance before a crowd of 15,000 flabbergasted Starbucks customers. Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Trump boasted:
I would never give up a microphone. I thought that was disgusting. That showed such weakness. The way he was taken away by two young women. The microphone, they just took the whole place over. And the audience, which liked him, I mean, they were him. They”re saying “what’s going on, how can this happen?’…That will never happen with me….I don”t know if I”ll do the fighting myself or if other people will.
On Twitter, “members” of the Black Lives Matter movement put down their coconut shells and spears long enough to vow that they will attend and disrupt future Trump appearances. Stay tuned, for this will make for some of the most electrifying political theater in the planet’s history.
WRITER ENCOURAGES “WHITE WOUNDING”
Jesse Benn is an activist/writer who describes himself as a “Member of the Tribe.” As a complete freak coincidence, he is constantly bashing, demeaning, defaming, condemning, and demonizing “whiteness.”
He just wrote an article for the Huffington Post that gives Tim Wise a run for the money in its pathologically anti-white hatred. Titled “To Work Toward Racial Justice We Need White Wounding,” the article contains such punchable passages as:
White people need to open ourselves up to a particular type of wounding to genuinely understand and then work toward racial justice. Our comfort and privilege generally keeps us from incurring these wounds naturally, and thus they must be sought out, disseminated, and used to motivate action….Understanding this is critical to anti-racist work in white spaces….It’s time for white people to share in the hurt….It’s time for white wounding.
Since Benn describes himself as “white” throughout the article, would it be inappropriate”or even inhumane”to suggest that he be the first one wounded?
BLACK POLITICIAN DROPS A “NIGGER” INTO CAMPAIGN AD
Louisiana Republican Senator Elbert Guillory is a black man who would likely be defamed by most modern blacks as an Uncle Tom, a House Negro, and perhaps even a Mantan Moreland. Guillory is running for Louisiana lieutenant governor. Last weekend the group Louisianans for Better Government purchased TV ad time to air a commercial for Guillory. The ad references the allegation in the book Inside the White House that Lyndon Baines Johnson bragged to his cohorts that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would “have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years.” The ad, titled “The King Hath Spoken,” allegedly features a discussion between Guillory and an actor playing Martin Luther King. Baton Rouge Mayor Kip Holden”himself a black man”accused Guillory of tyring to “bait people into a race war.”
This sounds like the most exciting political TV ad of all time. To our great woe and dismay, we were unable to find it online at press time. If you can locate a link, please be so kind and considerate as to leave it in the comments section. Thank you, and be well.
