The latest weird sequel to the ObamaCare ad controversy is the claim that conservatives mocking “Pajama Boy” are anti-Semites.
Such a claim involves a lot intellectual gymnastics which might be better described as the psychological projections of a profoundly disturbed personality named Jay Michaelson:
Parenthetically, the model himself is one Ethan Krupp, an Organizing for America staffer who is, in fact, Jewish. But whether Krupp himself is circumcised or not, Pajama Boy is semiotically Jewish, even stereotypically so.
In fact, Pajama Boy stands at a centuries-old nexus of anti-Semitism and misogyny.
Jay Michaelson tells us very little about conservatives who made fun of a silly ad, but tells us an awful lot about the strange ideas that swirl around inside Jay Michaelson’s deranged mind.
