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.”
“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?
