It seems that anti-Semitism is on the rise among the Hollywood set in recent times. First, actor/producer Mel Gibson spews anti-Semetic venom to a traffic cop; more recently, producer Oliver Stone blames Jewish control of media for Hollywood not protraying the human side of Adolph Hitler. The latest entry is comedienne Rosanne Barr.
I used to believe that Rosanne could sink no lower then when she sang an off-key version of the "Star Spangled Banner" while grabbing her crotch. I was wrong.
Barr's excursion into anti-Semitism goes beyond mere bigotry into the realm of irrationality. On her "Rosanne World (Insights from the Domestic Goddess)" blog, Barr maintains, among other things: "Many of the Palestinian people are jewish and became christian after Israel stole their land and homes," "Zionists are German" and that "The scientists of the Reich successfully created a mutant human--a hybrid of Jewish mentality and German Resolve, the Zionist." In addition, she reveals that top Nazis Hitler, Heinrich Himmler and Joseph Goebbles were Jewish.
There's no video to this, just this link to her blog she makes her claims and this picture of her at a photoshoot for Heeb magazine.
In honor of the great American philosopher Bugs Bunny, who first coined the phrase, I've decided to present the "What a Maroon" award each week to the politician, organization or celebrity who makes the most sand-poundingly stupid statement of recent days.
