    .
    Fox News has published an interesting article that highlights Harvey Weinstein's jewish origin:
    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017...or-democrats-for-hollywood-for-humankind.html

    What I would like to know is: how do you think that the Weinstein scandal will affect the jewish community? Should jews be concerned that people might associate Weinstein's disgusting behavior with his jewishness? As always, all opinions are welcome.

    I'm Jewish and it has absolutely no affect on me whatsoever. Why would you think that it would? Do Christian perverts like the *****-grabber-in-chief have an affect on you?

    The parallels between Berlin during the 1920's Weimar Republic and Hollywood is getting clearer and clearer.

    Lots of well-known media outlets are concerned that people might associate Weinstein's perverted behavior with his jewishness. Here's an article that was published in the jewish Tablet Magazine:
    http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/246724/the-specifically-jewy-perviness-of-harvey-weinstein

    And here's Huffington Post's reply:

    No, There’s Nothing ‘Jewy’ About Harvey Weinstein’s Predatory Behavior

    Who says I'm a Christian?

    Why focus on that, and not the other characteristics...? They included humankind, so I'm assuming that's you, too.

    The only affect it would have would be with bigots as if they need any extra reason to be filled with hate.

    The tablet article makes an interesting point. There's a lot in the Talmud that has influenced even the secular Jews, giving them a superiority status over gentiles, and the belief that Gentiles are to serve Jewish masters.

    I guess you guys missed the following Fox News quote in my OP:
    And I guess you also missed the article from Tablet Magazine, and the article from Huffington Post.

    Well anti-Semites are an embarrassment to humankind. There's nothing much more to it than that.

    Who are these "antisemites" that you're talking about? Give us some examples (as long as they're relevant to the thread's topic).

    Well, the most criticized "antisemite" is the jew Mark Oppenheimer who has written for well-known and respected publications like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, etc. He was attacked for his article in Tablet Magazine because it highlighted Weinstein's jewish origin. I thought that it was well-written, interesting and perfectly legitimate.

    Perhaps...

    seems no different than an article that a Catholic or Christian or whoever could write about priests and pedophilia and whatever...like this one...

    Conservative Christianity Has Enabled Pedophiles for Untold Decades
    https://thedailybanter.com/2017/06/suffer-the-children/

    Just seems like fodder for bigots to me, at least here on this forum...

    This reminded me of that Jewish pornographer who said he does what he does so he can have sex with Catholic girls. An old disgusting vile human being his name is escapes me at the moment.

    I agree it should not bother you at all. Speaking of trump and Christians, every time trump starts his God talk it makes me want to puke.

    According to that article:

    Jews became involved in the porn industry for much the same reasons that their co-religionists became involved in Hollywood. They were attracted to an industry primarily because it admitted them. Its newness meant that restrictive barriers had not yet been erected, as they had in so many other areas of American life. In porn, there was no discrimination against Jews. During the early part of the twentieth century, an entrepreneur did not require large sums of money to make a start in the film business; cinema was considered a passing fad. In the porn business, it was similarly straightforward to get going.

    So all of this is based on racism and bigotry.

    Now, of course, porn is filled with people from all walks of life, one can be a porn star from their own home and be seen around the world, and I suspect everyone from every background on this forum watches porn every day just as they always have.

    And you ignored the following parts:

    Al Goldstein, the publisher of Screw, said (on lukeford.net), ‘The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks.(…)Jewish involvement in porn, by this argument, is the result of an atavistic hatred of Christian authority: they are trying to weaken the dominant culture in America by moral subversion. (…) Pornography thus becomes a way of defiling Christian culture and, as it penetrates to the very heart of the American mainstream (and is no doubt consumed by those very same WASPs), its subversive character becomes more charged.

    Clearly, these pornographers hated Christianity and Western culture in general. Also, Harvey Weinstein has made anti-Christian garbage movies.

    Oh, come on. Now you're just trolling.

    So Goldstein is, or was, a kook. I really don't care what he said. He's one guy. Weinstein is one guy.

    How about a thread about all the people who "hate Jews". (That's, ironically, what this thread appears to be). Would that be useful?

    Like I said, this is just fodder for anti-semitism. Are you an anti-semite? You never watch porn?

    Playboy is the biggest adult business in the world. I guess all midwestern Protestants should be embarrassed as they are trying to destroy Christian and western culture and values.

    According to Hefner himself he was born in Chicago on 9th April 1926 to Glenn Lucius Hefner and Grace Caroline Swanson. His parents were both originally from the farmlands of Nebraska. He states that his father was of German origin, while his mother was of Swedish ancestry.


    Hefner openly states that his family was middle-class and Protestant. This something that hasn't changed over the years as he often gives it as a good part of his rationale for starting 'Playboy' as part of his 'liberation' from the strict Christian morality of his parents.
