Ideological Bigotry Part XVIII–Boycott Family Guy

The left just can’t stop the hatred. They wake up in the morning and find that they cannot be happy unless they are angry, miserable, spiteful, and vicious.

As I have said many times, I began blogging to combat ideological bigotry, the hatred of people based on being politically right of center and having the nerve to exist.

Before going any further, I wish the Jewish people of the world a Happy Simchas Torah. Simchah means joy, and on many levels my cup of joy truly runneth over. My Simchas Torah last year was a deeply sad affair due to the death of my friend Zach at age 40. Therefore, nothing going on in my life, even this election, will cause me to lose perspective.

Having said that, I have to remind myself repeatedly to be joyful when I am bombarded on a daily basis with people who want to remove me from the planet.

I am not referring to Islamofacists. I trust my current Republican President George W. Bush to handle that. I am referring to American liberals, particularly in the Jewish community, that would rather be waterboarded or given electric volts than concede that conservatives have a right to exist.

The latest version of ideological bigotry comes from Seth MacFarlane, the creator of the cartoon “Family Guy.”

I am not somebody who watches Family Guy. I have seen it once or twice, and it just did not appeal to me. I enjoy “South Park” and “King of the Hill,” and even enjoy “American Dad,” despite that last one being quite politically liberal. I stopped watching the Simpsons years ago, and just never enjoyed Family Guy. I never thought about it one way or the other. Besides, Sundays are about football, so I miss most of these shows anyway.

Yet now I hope none of my friends ever watch Family Guy ever again.

Seth MacFarlane contributes tons of money to liberal causes. He is typical Hollywood. That is all well and good. This past week, Family Guy had a scene where the characters were dressed up as Nazis.

I am not a big fan of Holocaust humor, but I am not humorless. I did like the episode of “Seinfeld” that focused on the “Soup Nazi.”

What bothered me was when one of the characters noticed a button on their Nazi outfit. It was a lapel button that read “McCain Palin.”

When is this going to stop?

Some will tell me to “lighten up.” My response to them cannot be printed.

When some comics printed a strip of Barack Obama working at Kentucky Fried Chicken and eating watermelon, there was an uproar. I was disgusted by this. It was vile. Why is it that when racial or ethnic bigotry exists, people condemn it, yet ideological bigotry not only goes unchallenged, but in many areas is celebrated?

Comparing the most evil murderers in history to people who want to kill evil murderers, in addition to tax cuts, is obscene.

I have been wrestling with this issue for some time, and as much as it makes me ill, it is time to “scare people straight and stupid.” For those that like to make jokes about Nazis and republicans, it is time for the emotional 2 by 4 to be applied to their heads.

For those who have weak stomachs, stop reading this immediately, and skip down several paragraphs. This is about to get very graphic. I will be copying several passages from the book “Deliver Us From Evil,” by Sean Hannity. It contains graphic descriptions of the Holocaust. I cannot think of another way to convey the seriousness of this issue.

Again, a final warning. This will be grisly, and please come back tomorrow if facing this is too painful.

“The Jews of Europe reached the camps mostly by rail. The trains–sometimes fifty cattle cars long–were packed with exhausted men, women, and children, who had been traveling many days with nothing to eat or drink. Not all the ‘pieces,’ as the SS called the victims, could be killed at once, so families in the rear cars waited in ignorance on the tracks outside the train station for the front cars to be ‘unloaded.’ The whole murderous process–from getting off the train to being turned into ashes and dumped in a nearby river–often took no more than a few hours. Those too ill to be brought to gas chambers were shot in the back of the neck.

In crematoriums 2 and 3, Zyklon gas crystals were poured in by a so called SS disinfection squad through the ceiling, and in Crematoriums 4 and 5 through side openings. With five or six cannisters of gas they could kill around two thousand people. This so called disinfection squad arrived in a truck marked with a red cross and escorted people along to make them believe that they were being led to take a bath.

Until they reached the end, they saw nothing. Then they’d see the dead in the pit. They were forced to strip, to sit on a sandbank, and were killed with a shot in the neck. They fell into the pit. With rubbish, paper, and gasoline, people burn very well.

Nothing ‘useful,’ was wasted, from the hair on their heads to the gold in their teeth. It all went into Nazi coffers…

Nearly 70% of European Jews were slaughtered in these camps during the war…but it didn’t happen with a snap of the fingers…the Nazis needed a system, a plan devised by bureaucrats and executed by efficient men who had analyzed all the difficulties of managing the ‘task,’ and who worked constantly to refine the ‘process.’

As documents from the Nazi era reveal, the efficiency of the genocide was also abetted by virulent anti-Semitic propaganda, which demonized the victims and glorified their Nazi murderers.”

Ok, you can open your eyes and bring the kids back in the room. I will quote the conclusion that Mr. Hannity reaches.

“In taking on the German military–a war machine every bit as fierce as the Nazi death machine–the Allies were compelled by three basic principles: that totalitarian government is the enemy of freedom; that systematic oppression and cruelty it fosters is not merely senseless, but utterly evil; and that appeasement can never defeat evil–it can only embolden it.”

Now for those who think that Family Guy is “just a cartoon making a joke,” I simply have no humor for those that compare me to a Nazi murderer.

Yet wait…how does insulting John McCain, Sarah Palin, or George W. Bush by comparing them to Adolf Hitler affect me?

Because I believe in them. I voted for President Bush, and will be voting for McCain and Palin. I have a McCain yamulkah (Jewish skullcap). I have a t-shirt with President Bush on it. These slurs do not attack just these people. They attack all the supporters.

It is not just cartoon. Al Gore has referred to President Bush supporters as “Brownshirts.” He asked in 2000 if we wanted to be “part of the forces of good or evil.” Evil? Are you kidding me? Why is it that liberals cannot refer to real evil such as Islamofacism as evil, but have zero problems referring to political conservatives as evil. He also claimed that “conservatives use color blind in the same way hunters use a duck blind.” A duck blind is used to kill ducks.

When is this madness going to stop?

I began blogging when a Jewish leftist at a dinner party expressed desire to see supporters of George W. Bush be flammable. That is called lynching.

Some will say these are just words. Yet remember how the Holocaust was able to happen. The first step in exterminating people is by dehumanizing them. If they are subhuman, then they do not deserve the normal protections that people receive.

The goal of those on the left is too stigmatize the right, dehumanize them, and exterminate them.

No, I do not expect liberals taking me into a back alley and stuffing Zyklon B down my throat. However, I see physical violence towards conservatives. I visit college campuses, and I see leftists students, egged on by professors, frothing at the mouth. I see them learning from terrorists like William Ayers that actually did blow stuff up. Some will try to claim that this violence is just as bad on the right, and bring up abortion clinics. The quantity of violence is not even close. Also, those that bomb those clinics are not educating our children.

Children do not know how to hate.. They have to be taught. Yet I just saw a video of young girls ages 5 to 15, criticizing Sarah Palin for supporting rape. Is this acceptable, to indoctrinate children in this way?

Do those on the left really believe that political conservatives support rape, murder, and the destruction of human life in a manner equivalent to 1930s Germany?

If not, why do they joke about it?

Seth MacFarlane should look my dad in the eye. He was four years old when the war ended, and still is in some ways affected by it at age 67. He has voted for politically right of center candidates. Try telling him that jokes about the Holocaust are just “sophisiticated humor.”

(Full disclosure: My father did not talk about it when I was young. He wanted to give me a normal childhood, and he succeeded. I learned about it when I was older.)

How can liberal Jews compare such atrocities to people who wear a diagonal blue and red necktie and support supply side economics?

I could point out that Hitler was a vegetarian and environmentalist, but that would be totally unfair to the many decent people on the left who eschew meat but are against the Holocaust.

This goes so much deeper than Family Guy. An entire political party has been taken over by people who truly believe that the biggest atrocities in the world are being committed by people like me.

I am just a guy. I am not even Joe the Plumber. I can’t fix a sink. I am a harmless little fuzzball that lives an ordinary life, and wants to the right to exist free of the psychotics that object to this. I want to get through my day without being compared to murderers.

So for those that need to have it explained again…for those that use analogies of Hitler and Nazis with regards to politically conservative individuals…

(Grabbing the bullhorn): STOP…F*CKING…DOING…IT!

Until the left learns humanity, they will fail to “bring people together.” It is not possible to unite people when you have demonized them to the point of no return.

One day they will come for the liberals.

Nobody will save them because they will not have left anybody else to speak up.

Then again, maybe if they came for the hatemongers on the left first, next time this year I truly could enjoy Simchas Torah. The people in the Synagogue would see me as what I already am…human.

Hineni. Here I am. Republican, Jewish, and proud.

    I caught the Family guy clip on one of the news channels and just freaked at the blatant transparency.
    Its only funny to these a$$holes laughing at it because they have no clue as to the similarities between radical Islam today and what happend back then.
    But of course they actually had to pick up a book that had something to do with more than recycling paper and Carters latest in order to get it
    How can we expect a generation to take todays greatest enemy seriously when they are clueless as to the past that helped design todays radical movement ?

    God bless you man, excellent post

  2. Man, you have got to lighten up.

    Given that you haven’t seen much of Family Guy, I can sorta understand your confusion here. Like South Park, nothing is out of bounds with Family Guy. They regularly spoof on everything; matricide, child molestation, infant homosexuality, beastialty, disabilities of every kind, race, religion, Nazis, Muslims, Jews, Christians, the Pope, Jesus, hippies, cops, rightwingers, leftwingers, AIDS, death, killing hookers – you name it, they spoof on it. Unlike South Park, which ususally has some moral to the story, Family Guy is almost pure gag. Gag after gag after gag. It’s a half-hour of non-stop gags. South Park even did a spoof on Family Guy once just on the purile, socially unredeeming, gag-nature of the show. I saw the “McCain/Palin sticker” gag, and laughed like everyone else. Anyone who watches the show knows not to take their gags seriously. You should have seen the Bill Clinton gags!

    Just the same, Family Guy is and irreverent and raucus release for liberals. It’s not made by or for conservatives. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. I think it’s one of the funniest shows on television.

    As for Sean Hannity, I wouldn’t pay a penny for his thoughts about the Holocaust. He’s a nobody. If you’re going to reference literary works regarding the Holocaust, at least find someone who actually lived it or knows what they’re talking about. And for you to complain about the “McCain/Palin” joke and then reference Hannity, a freind of Hal Turner the neonazi, and once said, “there are things in life worth fighting and dying for and one of them is making sure Nancy Pelosi doesn’t become the speaker,” and on the very cover of the very book you referenced (a despicable little tome) is the subtitle “defeating terrorism, despotism and liberism” – and that’s NOT supposed to be a joke, is absurdly ironic.

    I call hyocrisy!

    And you mentioned Seth MacFarlane, but neglected to mention the other developer – David Zuckerman, the same guy from King of the Hill and American Dad. Then there’s the brilliant Alex Borstein, Seth Green, and David Goodman. Somehow they didn’t seem to mind that little gag. And guess what their persuasion happens to be.

    In liberal circles, calling Republicans Nazis and Fascists is just par for the course. We don’t actually mean or believe that Republicans are really Nazis or Fascists, just that they have enough in common to add enough of the element of truth to make it funny – albeit very sordid humor. It’s not the kind of jokes we’d make at a bar-mitzvah. We’re not THAT callous.


  3. Micky, you know what I find really insulting – people who compare a bunch of poor dumb Islamists to the greatest threat the world had ever known – Nazi Germany. That’s just stupid.


  4. Eliyahu says:

    it’s sad that so many Americans are so dumb that they can be captivated by shallow demogogues like obominable.

    I accept your proposal to put Emet m’Tsiyon on your blogroll and will do the same.

    Jersey, get off your high horse, or maybe go do some reserch that doesnt tell you only exactly what you want to believe.
    Radical Islam has pretty much taken ther agenda right out od the Nazi playbook.
    The comparison is valid since the objectives are much the same.
    Only because they have not succeeded in killing of all those who reject Allah, especialy the Jews, they are not worthy of comparison ?

    Please, spare me the self righteous indinigdnation that I can buy at any moonbat rally.
    Its only obvious to the slightly educated that Radical Islams intentions are much of what we saw in WW2.

    “The Mosque’s history, however, tells a more-tumultuous story. Buried in government and private archives are hundreds of documents that trace the battle to control the Islamic Center of Munich. Never before made public, the material shows how radical Islam established one of its first and most important beachheads in the West when a group of ex-Nazi soldiers decided to build a mosque.

    The soldiers’ presence in Munich was part of a nearly forgotten subplot to World War II: the decision by tens of thousands of Muslims in the Soviet Red Army to switch sides and fight for Hitler. After the war, thousands sought refuge in West Germany, building one of the largest Muslim communities in 1950s Europe. “

  6. Micky 2 says:

    “Instead, it was a movement with an equally powerful ideology: the Muslim Brotherhood. Founded in 1920s Egypt as a social-reform movement, the Brotherhood became the fountainhead of political Islam, which calls for the Muslim religion to dominate all aspects of life. A powerful force for political change throughout the Muslim world, the Brotherhood also inspired some of the deadliest terrorist movements of the past quarter century, including Hamas and al Qaeda.”

    ““Mr. Namangani had come from a long line of imams in his native land, modern-day Uzbekistan. But his religious service had mostly been in an unholy organization: Hitler’s infamous SS. According to an autobiographical sketch he gave German authorities, he had been arrested by Stalin’s security forces in 1941 and soon after liberated by the invading German army. He served as imam in various capacities, ending as imam for an SS division. He won some of Germany’s highest commendations, including the Iron Cross.”

    The parallels are just to close for anyone of us to be as complacent and minimizing about the whole thing as you are.
    Look !
    I’m not an idiot and you are all too easy to figure out.
    Your BDS is the only reason you choose to minimize radical Islam as a means to some paint a light on Bush as some over-reactive fool.
    Sorry bub.
    I’ve done too way too much research for you to think you can pull your crap on me.
    You should worry more about the saftey of your fellow Americans rather than trying to diminish what is a decent man who just wants americans to be safe.

    “Our Fundamental condition for cooperating with Germany was a free hand to eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world”

    -Grand Mufti of Palestine 1930’s
    Haj Muhammed Amin al-Husseini
    Support for Nazism was not limited to the former Mufti. Here are some quotes from Arab leaders on Hitler, and Nazism:

    “We admired the Nazis. We were immersed in reading Nazi literature and books . . . . We were the first who thought of [an Arab] translation of Mein Kampf. Anyone who lived in Damascus at that time was witness to the Arab inclination toward Nazism,” recalled Sami al-Joundi, one of the founders of Syria’s ruling Ba’ath Party.

    Indeed, a popular WWII song was heard in the Middle East featuring words: Bissama Allah, oria alard Hitler – in heaven Allah, on earth Hitler. Picking up the theme of the book, posters were put up in Arab markets and elsewhere proclaiming, “In heaven Allah is thy ruler; on earth Adolph Hitler.”

    John Gunther of Inside Asia reported: “The greatest contemporary Arab hero is probably Hitler.”
    JERSEY !
    Not only can I compare them to each other and not buy into your sensitivities I can put them together leaving no doubt that you’re wrong about telling any Jew to “lighten up” when it comes to the ones on the right that are painted as the same monsters that killed millions of their own people.

    You should be ashamed of yourself

  8. Micky 2 says:

    “It’s not the kind of jokes we’d make at a bar-mitzvah. We’re not THAT callous.”

    Yea well…
    You can just spread them to millions on TV ?

  9. Micky, the Nazi war machine was the the most powerful the world had ever known to that point. They invaded almost all of continental Europe. Their war cost the lives of tens of millions of people. They were the greatest menace the world has ever known. Period.

    To compare “radical Islam” with Nazi Germany is like comparing the Inquisition with the Black Plague.

    Look man, you guys are never going to convince everyone to be as paranoid as you. We can handle the “radilcal islamists” without bankrupting ourselves and wiping half the Earth off the map.

    I think you guys need serious psychiatric help.

    And look, if you wanna have peace in the Middle East, it’s simple: Israel has to give Palestine a viable, contiguous state and share Jerusalem (Lord knows no one else is going to do it, including the Palestinians themselves), the US has to stop backing the Arabian monarchs and juntas, and we all need to find something other than oil to make the world go round. And bango – no more trouble in the Middle East. And the bonus? You don’t have to massacre women and children. Granted, all that is a zillion times more complicated than it sounds, but it beats the heck out of the maniacal Dr. Strangelove type of stuff you guys go on about.


  10. Micky 2 says:

    Jersey, you just dont get it.
    Liberals tend not to deal with anything until its reached critical mass.
    Case and point Bill Clinton being complacent with Al Queda after numerous attacks on Americans and even one on our soil.

    The point is to nip in the bud what has the potential of becoming what we witnessed in WW2.
    Israel doesnt owe Palestine a damn thing except a swift kick in the ass for never ever being happy with anything and resorting to blatant terrorist methods supported for and payed for by even so called moderate Arabs.
    Most of the Arab community could kick in and get the Palestinians settled once and for all but they wont. Only because they are using them as foder to elevate/maintain their arguement against Israel.

    I can only assume that by the sound of things you’ve never met anyone who suffered at the hands of the Nazis.
    I grew up with a nuerotic basket case grandma amd mother.
    We have sirens here in Hawaii that are tested every month for about 5 minutes.
    My granma ( bless her) and mother would break into sweats and ashake and hide under tables and in closets whenever the test would run.
    I grew up watching this for as long as til I moved into my own place.
    Suffices to say that both my mom and granma were party girls for all the wrong reasons.
    And they’re not even Jewish.
    My father whom was Jewish brought his mom here for a summer once.
    She also stood up and screamed like a maniac when the sirens went of and started rambling a bunch paranoid yiddish garble, I thought we would have to take her to the state hospital for a couple days.

    I really suggest you take a different perspective on this.
    It makes no sense to me how liberal Jews can vote for the one party that would do the least for them if worse ever came to worse.

    And once again, as much as you say I cant compare oone to the other, there really is no need to as it is painfully obvious where they got most of their ideological base from.

    Dont insult my intelligence by playing your little game of patronizing minimization when its only pointed out above as historical fact that Radical Islams roots are firmly adhered to Nazi Germany.

    Why wouldnt the left be willing to minimize racism as much as they do antisemitism ?
    They both have very much in common and in history have both proven to be equally dangerous.
    I’ll tell you why.
    Because without the overhyped racism you guys cry abouy all the time you would be missing out on half the platform you guys run on , the other half would be abortion.
    Yet I see you all doing very little to do anything about blatant antisemitic sentiments.
    Family Guy calling the right Nazis is about as stupid as it gets because if worse came to worse its actually the right that would grab any attenpts to repeat history by the balls and deal with it.
    You guys would probably wanna do the kumbaya thing and get millions killed again.

  11. Micky, would you cons please stop with the WWII references? You’re mocking the deaths of 50 million people every time you do it.


  12. Micky 2 says:

    Nope, sorry bub, cant do that.
    It would convenient for you , wouldnt it ?

    With all due respect thats just stupid.
    You want me to lose the comparison that makes my point and chews up yours ?

    By referencing WW2 I am doing what it takes to prevent any such thing from happeneing again.
    The facts that make the reference a valid one are there and you just cant stand it.
    So please, spare me your fake sympathy as some attempt to come out of this looking righteous.

    ME MOCKING ???

    Pull it out bro.

  13. Eagle 6 says:

    Let me show my age…the first documentary I ever saw was in elementary school in the early ’50s. It showed Hitler making rousing speeches, and the huge crowds cheered. As he further defined his agenda, neither the crowds nor the cheers receded, because those who were not included in his “vision” were drowned out by the deafening screams of his raving lunatic supporters… and the rest is history. GW is a hero in the truest sense. By standing up hard and fast, he reduced the madness to a continuous struggle…as Eric is proposing by asking for limits on insulting our sensibilities… as one bullet Barney Fife said, “If you let them go 30, they’ll go 35… if you let them go 35…”
