I am a Jew!
Legend says that when the Germans ordered Jews in occupied Denmark to identify themselves by wearing armbands with the Star of David, King Christian X of Denmark and non-Jewish Danes thwarted the order by donning the armbands themselves. The legend is not true but unlike the rest of Nazi occupied Europe, during World War II, the Danes were able to save most of their Jewish citizens.
65 years later:
The Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who for 20 years was the spiritual mentor to the president of the United States, surfaced Tuesday, and the Daily Press of Newport News, Va., reports:
Wright told the Daily Press that he has not spoken to his former church member since [Barack] Obama became president, and he implied that the White House won't allow Obama to talk to him.
"Them Jews ain't going to let him talk to me," Wright said. "I told my baby daughter that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office. . . .
"They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. . . . I said from the beginning: He's a politician; I'm a pastor. He's got to do what politicians do."
James von Brunn Who killed a security guard at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC yesterday also did not care for "them Jews," as the Washington Post reports: "Von Brunn's writings condemning 'Negroes' and Jews were prolific." Reviewing a tract he wrote that was available online until yesterday, we noticed that he tends to spell the word JEW in majuscules and use it as an adjective as well as a noun, a practice straight out of the Anti-Semitic Manual of Style. James von Brunn also had the address with him of the neo con Weekly Standard in Washington DC which is a magazine that strongly defends Israel and in which Bill Kristol is an editor and founder.*
Yes, today I Am a Jew!
