When All Else Fails, Blame The Jews

Last week on Real Time with Bill Maher, Green day lead singer Billie Joel Armstrong stated "Religion is a bunch of bullshit", had this been another time, that statement may have been shocking, but these days, well as Jane's Addiction once stated "nothing's shocking".
Certainly not like in the sixties. At the height of their popularity, John Lennon told an interviewer: "Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first - rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me."
Of course, then all people heard was some self-important rock star claiming to be more bigger than Jesus, but that and some indiscriminate use of recreational drugs led the Vatican to condemn the Fab Four. But now, what with the half the clergy molesting children while the other half cover it up, drug use and boastful statements seem small, and so in a bid for forgiveness itself, The Vatican has forgiven John Lennon and the Beatles.
And hey, why not? The Beatles can't really be held responsible for their statements, they were under the influence of psychedelic drugs. And a Jewish manager. Why, did you know that this whole pedophile scandal and subsequent criticism of the church can be blamed on the Jews? Not a favorable position for a Church led by a former member of the Hitler Youth, but there are enough anti-semites in the world who like to blame the Jews for everything else, why not throw them under the bus for this as well?

I never read that entire quote from John Lennon. I just remember all the publicity when he said "we're more popular than Jesus" and everybody coming apart at the seams over it.

Blaming the Jews, blaming the gays...Those scum are blaming everyone but themselves for what they have done.

Yes, taken out of context, as it was, it seemed a boast, but within the context he was saying, it wasn't as outrageous. And when more and more Christians realizing they are subsidizing pedophilia, it may even be prophetic.
Yes, they are scum. The fact their god has not struck them down is all the proof I need he doesn't exist.

I had thought we had been over this before. Lew, you need to do more research about what constitutes an ethnically semitic person and what does not. The so-called Jews have hijacked that term just as they have hijacked US politics. Words of Seymour Hersh not mine. Read Schlomo Sands The Invention of the Jewish People. US taxpayer has been supporting a racist apartheid system in so-called Israel for over forty years. Drop the American Exceptionalism. I blame the Baby Boomers. The Earth needs a secular Socialist Palestine alligned with Venezeula and Cuba - barakade yourselves till capitalism, zionism and imperialism are forever erased from the pages of his-tory.
