First of all, PC Janitor is a complete imbecile for many reasons.

Secondly:

But I leave you with my favorite: in 2000 Sports Illustrated named its Athlete of the Century: Sandy Koufax, the Jew who would not pitch on Yom Kippur.

Fact check FALSE! I have the coffee table book that lists the SI Athletes of the Century. As every schoolchild should know:

Muhammad Ali was honored as the Sportsman of the Century during Sports Illustrated's 20th Century Sports Awards at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night.

"This is a great feeling," said the three-time heavyweight champion, who playfully sparred with presenter Billy Crystal after taking the stage.

Babe Ruth was honored by the magazine's editors as the best baseball player, Michael Jordan was selected the top basketball player, Jim Brown the best football player, and Wayne Gretzky the best hockey player.

For a different take, ESPN did a similar feature called "SportsCentury", where Sandy Koufax was ranked as the 42nd best athlete of the 20th Century:

As for the mom who was told she couldn't give a presentation on Hanakkuh, the school clearly didn't want to open the can of worms which would end up with some evangelical Christians wanting to give a presentation on the birth of Christ. Or, show "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

Why aren't they all screaming about "separation of church and staaaaaate!!!!"

Mr. ABC is out for a couple of hours this morning, so am enjoying myself reading BB at the moment.

Came across this, and am interested in your opinion of it ...

Must also stop reading the comment section, and get on with my day, but not before posting one of them that made me laugh.

PCIntern was inspired by Kanye's :blah: to parody the very real annual suppression of Christmas celebration. He should leave satire and parody to the capable, such as the good people at the Babylon Bee.

Is PCIntern Jewish and sufficiently religious to know what Hanukkah celebrates?

Ummmmmmmm ... OK. Has PCIntern taken note of the antisemitic ravings of Ilhan Omar? Of AOC? Of Ayanna Pressley. Of Rashida Tlaib? Has PCIntern taken note of how many who attacked Hasidim and other culturally attired Orthodox Jews in NYC were out on no-bail release after previous crimes, a definitively Dem policy?

PCIntern and other DUmmies should clean out their own Augean stables before nitpicking the cleanliness of others'.

I'm very wary of the MSM (new motto, All the skews we see fit to print.), but it sounds like Kanye has fallen into the trap of, "Hitler did good for the German economy," while ignoring the 5 or 6 million Jews he slaughtered, plus gypsies, plus homosexuals, plus the disabled and mentally ill, and the 10s of millions who died in the European war he started. Flipping the old analogy, it's like Kanye (and the many others before him who said similarly) says, "Look! There's a chunk of brownie somewhere in that truck load of crap! Let's eat!"

As for Musk and Maher, when they say something good, they said something good and that's all. They aren't particularly near the realm of principled conservatism.

It's the War on Hanukkah again...
Yep… This time every year as in the spring for Passover, the antisemites and Holocaust deniers come out of the woodwork and declare war on Jewish holidays. From the school which denied the mother of the elementary school child the ability to discuss Hanukkah with the class, to the Amazon decision to keep a blood libel video in its catalog, we see the elements of a blitzkrieg against Judaism.

The pain which these bigots feel because they cannot deny the fact that Judaism was a monotheistic faith which preceded their own, and gave rise to their son of God and prophet Jesus, cannot be described, so what they do is disperse their hate like shotgun blasts against Jews. The other thing which gets to them is the Jews don’t proselytize among Gentiles and this makes them doubly nuts.

But here’s the rub: they hate us but grudgingly admit that if they need a lawyer to get them out of a serious charge or an accountant to rescue their sorry asses from the IRS, or a doctor to save their child’s life via an intricate methodology of treatment or invent a vaccine to prevent say, polio (both Salk and Sabin were Jewish), they need a “Jew”.

But I leave you with my favorite: in 2000 Sports Illustrated named its Athlete of the Century: Sandy Koufax, the Jew who would not pitch on Yom Kippur.

And to “quote” Ari Melber “quoting” the artist formerly known as Kanye West: “**** these ****ing ****ers straight to ****ing Hell”.

Isn't PsychoHoseBeastYe or whatever he's going by now posting anti-Semitic stuff and swastikas?  White supremacists love that stuff. ::)

What little I've seen of the mess that is Ye, recently and in the past, my two bits is the man either needs serious mental help or he's a false deity tier troll who probably still needs serious mental help.

     Dude is a nutbar, and is clearly experiencing a serious mental and emotional collapse. Because he's delighting liberals (and not shaving his head and attacking cars, like Britney Spears did), they'll use his mental illness to expect us to "own" him, which is pretty much liberal cynicism in a nutshell. Right now in Philly, LA, San Fran, and NYC there are scores if not hundreds of mentally ill black men living on the streets, spouting nonsense, shitting their pants and the streets, but they can't be used against conservatives, so they are invisible to the people who claim to pity them most.

     Someone needs to get Kanye off the airwaves and back on meds, and I hope they do. The only person he's hurting is himself - DU is itself a cesspool of antisemitism and Hitler love ("Who's worse? Bush, or Hitler?" - remember that, DUmmies?) and no one cares.

     Now then: people on the Right have to stop falling in love with prominent people who happen to say some things they like, or who occasionally show signs of having swallowed a red pill. I don't trust a *******ed one of them, from Maher to Musk to Kanye.
