Not Funny

DovBear has a post that exposes a casual anti-semitism in middle America. I don't think it's funny, but CousinOliver and Klypod do.

Here is my comment there:

"I think laughing about this is the most dangerous thing you can do. One laugh can dissipate a thousand warnings. That is what this video is: A warning.

Wake up and realize that the Holocaust can easily take place again. We know that there were Yiddish theater troupes that mocked Hitler and his Germans in 1937.

You don't joke about the redneck (or blue- or white-collar) antisemites. You place them in hospitals.

And, most of all, you move to Israel."
