‘Your Behavior Is Deviant,’ Jewish Voter Tells Disgraced Anthony Weiner

Posted on | September 4, 2013 | 19 Comments

The Yiddish phrase a shanda fur die goyim comes to mind in watching this yamulke-wearing Jewish man confront nationally famous pervert Anthony Weiner at a deli in Brooklyn:

To disgrace the tribe, to bring shame on Israel, is not acceptable:

“You talk to God and work out your problems, but stay out of the public eye … You’re a bad example for the people. … Your behavior’s deviant, it’s not normal behavior.”

Rosh Hoshanah begins at sundown today, and I’d like to think that this righteous denunciation of the unrighteous Anthony Weiner was inspired by my July 31 American Spectator column:

“Deviant” is a word we don’t hear much anymore, for the simple reason that its meaning has become invalid or irrelevant or, as any Democrat would say, an expression of hate. America has in recent years gradually lost its vocabulary of moral judgment. “Deviant,” “abnormal,” “perverse,” “immoral” — each of these terms for sexual behavior that is wrong and bad implies the existence of an antonym for what is right and good. . . .  Politically correctness forbids us to assert that any form of sexual behavior is more wholesome or more normal than any other. And no one in American public life dares use the word “sin” nowadays.

Isn’t it time we started calling sin by its right name? And, sad to say, we shall soon lose the endless blog fodder that is Anthony Weiner:

Weiner’s at seven percent in the polls with the primary less than a week away, which means this is probably the last post we’ll ever write about him as a kinda sorta theoretically somewhat viable political candidate.  . . .
The best part here? The triumphant “I don’t back down” at the end. This guy once dreamed of governing America’s most populous city, now he’s reduced to rhetorically fist-bumping himself for not letting some guy in a bakery heckle him without a response.

Exit question: Is Weiner a shlemiel or a shmendrick? Both?

    I love a candidate for office going around telling the people he wants to be his constituents that they can’t judge him. What could go wrong?

  • JeffWeimer

    He’s a schmuck.

  • M. Thompson

    Well, he’ll lose the election for sure.

  • darthlevin

    Weiner? He should grow like a turnip with his head in the ground.

    ” Is Weiner a shlemiel or a shmendrick?”
    I’ll defer to a mohel for the appropriate place in the taxonomy.

  • JeffS

    Isn’t “putz” a Yiddish word? ‘Cuz Weiner is a putz.

  • Freddie Sykes

    Literally a putz given what his favorite photographic subject is.

  • DaveO

    Weiner is being held accountable for his actions?
    Nobody tell Bill Clinton or Hussein Obama!

  • Steve Skubinna

    Guy has the same outraged response to criticism as… well, as does nearly every Demo pol.

    “YOU criticize ME? You DARE criticize ME? Who the hell are YOU to judge ME?”

  • Steve Skubinna

    We’re about to find out, aren’t we?

  • Bob Belvedere

    But…but…he only wanted to be loved!…

  • da_truth36

    shlemiel or a shmendrick? Both?
    How does piece of sh*t work?

    I haven’t heard the entire audio of this confrontation, but the AP has a pretty interesting spin on it:

    In another video, released by the Weiner campaign later Wednesday, the man can be heard saying “married to an Arab,” presumably a reference to Weiner’s Muslim wife, Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    I’m thinking BS.

  • JeffS

    Finally got around to Binging “putz” — yup, he is!
