Oscars segment jokes about how Jews control Hollywood

A disgusting segment at Sunday night's Academy awards left two billion people watching with the impression that Jews control Hollywood. It's in the last minute and a half of this clip.

Let's go to the videotape. More after the video.



The ADL didn't like it very much and I'm with them on this.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Monday derided as “offensive and not remotely funny” the segment, saying it was “sad and disheartening that the awards show sought to use age-old, anti-Jewish stereotypes for laughs.”
“For the insiders at the Oscars this kind of joke is obviously not taken seriously,” the ADL said in a statement. “But when one considers the global audience of the Oscars of upwards of two billion people, including many who know little or nothing about Hollywood or the falsity of such Jewish stereotypes, there’s a much higher potential for the ‘Jews control Hollywood’ myth to be accepted as fact.”
 Indeed. Imagine if they had made the same kind of jokes about blacks or gays or Muslims. No one - not even the Times of Israel - would try to excuse them.

Carl,I made myself watch that part last night. I was livid. When it was finished? I changed the channel, The Jew hate was treated like a joke....too many seemed to love it. I would bet that every single Jew was a Democrat,and LOVED it, just like they love Hussein.

Carl...it was funny! If you know Seth MacFarlane's work at all, you'd know he offends everyone, ruthlessly. "The Jews" don't control Hollywood, but come one, you know "Jews" do. You do yourself a disservice when you deny this simple fact (as you do when you quote loudmouth troublemaker parasite Foxman who, by the way, gave Mel Gibson tens of millions in free publicity for his Passion movie from all his hysteria-mongering.) I remember being 7 or 8 years old and seeing (and taking vicarious pride in) all those Jewish names on the TV and movie credits. Was I the victim of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories? No. Lighten up. It's humor.

Yonatan,

You and I may understand that it's humor (I think it's not very funny, but that's almost beside the point), but the 2 billion people watching worldwide with preconceived prejudices as Jews just feel that it validates what they already think. Go walk the streets in Europe or the Arab world and I guarantee you that 90%+ believe that Jews control Hollywood. This just confirmed it.
