My husband claims that it was I who coined the line about Stephen Fry that he is “a stupid person’s idea of a clever person”. And if I weren’t a sober person’s idea of a booze-addled person, I might be more useful in remembering whether this is true or not. Whatever, it’s pretty damn good.
In the way that black people can freely use the N word among themselves (apparently – I still find it vile) so gay men seem to think that because they sometimes call each other “she”, they are honorary women and thus can chuck the gynophobic abuse around like there’s no tomorrow. (…)
But let one woman – the real kind, not the pretendy drag-queen kind – pass a comment on gay male sexuality, as the journalist Jan Moir did on the death of Stephen Gately, and seven sorts of hell break loose.
In her desperate attempt to smear Lauren Booth, Independent writer Julie Burchill, a devout Zionist, proves how deceiving British multiculturalism is.
Indeed the Zionification of this Kingdom has left this country in a disastrous ethical limbo.
But most significantly, she displays an astonishing command of Jewish humour. Burchill is indeed very funny.
Jewish humour is a pretty simple concept : it is based on self-mockery mixed together with the absurd.
Jewish humour though, is, in practice, a camouflage: through comedy, funny Jews manage to live in peace with their symptoms.
I guess that Burchill doesn’t know that the word Yeshu- Jesus in Hebrew-is the abbreviation for the Hebrew phrase “may his name and memory be blotted out”. Seemingly, Rabbinical Jews are yet to forgive Jesus.
Uh-huh. Another old myth, up there with The Protocols. The only place you’ll find that claim is in anti-semitic sources. Just saying.
