Can I start with a Simpson reference?
Homer Badman (airdate November 1994) - the episode in which Homer is wrongly accused of sexual harassment - contains a "film within the film" moment, as Homer settles in to watch a quickly-made TV docudrama about himself & the infamous alleged "incident". Starring Dennis Franz as Homer, the FOX special is entitled "Homer S. Portrait of an Ass-Grabber":
"Homer": Now I'm going to grab me something sweet...[The camera quickly focuses on the girl's butt]
"Ashley": No, Mr. Simpson, that's sexual harassment. If you keep it up, I'll yell so loud the whole country will hear!
"Homer": [laughs] With "The Man" in the White house? [laughs] Not likely! [laughs more]
"The Man" being referred to here was, of course, Bill Clinton, who had quite the reputation for forcing himself onto women well before the Monica Lewinsky incident. Homer/Dennis Franz knew he was free to commit a lewd act, with the highest power in the nation engaging in the very same behavior (with the media covering it up nicely)....
Back to the EU Trade Minister, who, like so many worldwide, feel free to let their mask slip, and stop using oblique phrases about Zionists or even Israelis, and finally get down to the root of the matter:
Those miserable f*cking Jews:
Karel De Gucht, European Commissioner for Trade, was asked about the chances for peace in the Middle East on Belgian Flemis public radio VRT on Thursday, and answered with a tirade about the power of the "Jewish Lobby" in the US. He also insinuated that Jews are irrational when it comes to Israel and the Middle East.
"That is the best organized lobby that exists there," De Gucht was quoted by The Associated Press as telling VRT, a Dutch-language radio network. "There is, indeed, a religion, I can hardly describe it differently, among most Jews that they are right. So it is not easy to have a rational discussion with a moderate Jew about what is happening in the Middle East. It is a very emotional issue."
Why should De Gucht think twice about such hateful, bigoted, inflammatory rhetoric? Is he really going to get any type of serious reprimand for it? C'mon...with "The Man" in the White House? Not likely!
With a brazen anti-Semite now running the United States, the Jew haters of Europe can now come out of the closet with no fear of reprisals from Washington. Hey, the head of Amnesty International’s Finnish branch, Frank Johansson, called Israel a "scum state" last week, and gleefully refuses to back down.
And why should he? With "The Man" in the White House...nobody even thinks twice.
