Video: “Big Brother” contestant holds forth about Jews

posted at 8:59 am on August 8, 2007 by Allahpundit

Almost as shocking as what she says is the fact that someone out there actually records the overnight feed of this abortion. Can’t bear to miss a single semi-retarded beach-chair conversation, eh?

The media’s already picked it up so CBS will have to deal with it, but the fallout should be minimal. Prejudice only makes the show that much more, ahem, “real,” and besides — be it from overexposed non-talents or bottom-feeding reality show contestants, expressions of bigotry by people loathed by society have an almost salutary effect in associating one form of badness with another. Want to end up as a national punchline or in a human zoo? Then start hatin’.

This is not the first time that “Big Brother” has featured an open anti-Semite. The last time–the first season–they deliberately cast this guy. CBS will do anything to get noticed.

Debbie Schlussel on August 8, 2007 at 9:06 AM

Did she say she lives in Jesse Jackson’s “Heimi Town”?

TheSitRep on August 8, 2007 at 9:08 AM

As the inestimable Ron White once said: You can’t fix stupid.

I’ll confess, I watch the BB-8 tv episodes when they’re on. Anyone ever notice how when Jameka talks about her faith or starts praying when she’s under duress, the CBS producers play faux-religious music in the background? I’m not a religious person but that seems pretty mocking to me.

The people in the house this season are pretty deplorable.

Mindcrime on August 8, 2007 at 9:08 AM

Debbie…We have noticed ! What a bunch of asshats !

DoctorDentons on August 8, 2007 at 9:08 AM

Apparently she didn’t get the memo about TPS report cover sheets and that you are only allowed be openly racist toward people of Anglo Saxon origin.

TheSitRep on August 8, 2007 at 9:12 AM

I dare not look at the clip. I am a Southerner, and I cringe to hear a Southern accent.

Am I close?

Is she a stereotype Southern bigot?

But I don’t have to listen.

I can tell by the nose.

seejanemom on August 8, 2007 at 9:14 AM

Never watched the show — read Ben Elton’s Dead Famous instead. Close enough for me.

Quisp on August 8, 2007 at 9:14 AM

Charming, just charming. I don’t like her because she’s got bad hair and horrific shorts. Apparently I’m prejudiced too.

I’m more annoyed by the little girl talking to her. Maybe you should react a little stronger to someone’s overt racism instead of mousily saying, “Well, maybe you should say that ’cause someone might take your statements in a wrong way.” You think???

mjk on August 8, 2007 at 9:14 AM

If you’ve seen this show, you’ll already know that this “person” is a walking basket case who breaks out in tears at the drop-of-a-hat. She’s an emotional wreck. This aspect of her personality is hardly a surprise.

Malpaso on August 8, 2007 at 9:17 AM

One hears that Julie Chen is well respected at CBS. If true, why do they make her host this train wreck?

radjah shelduck on August 8, 2007 at 9:18 AM

“the nose” Hey jackass, not all Jews are Hebrews. You can convert to Judaism and your nose won’t change.

“human zoo” Exactly right.

Tony737 on August 8, 2007 at 9:20 AM

Blake on August 8, 2007 at 9:25 AM

Ashamed to say that I just watched that…

Anyway, it sounded like she inherited her bigotry from her mom. It isn’t all that surprising really.

nailinmyeye on August 8, 2007 at 9:26 AM

Seejanemom, no, she’s from Vegas (and admitted to being messed up by drugs, maybe more than she realizes?)
I really hope she gets kicked off soon. Her constant blubbering was already obnoxious, but I don’t think I can see her at all anymore.

If I would have known you were lurking around, I would have put on a new shirt and tie.

No one is a racist, until they need ratings. If you want ratings, become a racist. But you notice, never a word or comment about Muslims. Jews, Christians, dump all you want because the worst you get is complaints and ratings. But let an attack on Muslims fill the air, and they are facing more than complaints…apparently fear and bullying works.

Hymie, Heimi, Jaime… potato, potah-to, tomato, tomah-to :-)

I admit she’s not on 100% solid ground here, but at least we tell caricatures of Jews and Zionists in the Middle Eastern press by the noses drawn on them… if the omnipresent Stars of David don’t give them away already…

RD on August 8, 2007 at 9:58 AM

but at least we tell

Sorry… “at least we can tell…”

RD on August 8, 2007 at 9:59 AM

The “Reality” in Reality TV is highly overrated.

I generally don’t watch it unless beckoned by my family, primarily because there’s a lot more entertaining things to do than watch an hour-long emofest.

Oh yeah, and the calvinist (primary theme: predestination) black lady is rich as well. When do we get to see an Ahkmed set up on national television, and will we see him pray 5 times a day facing Mecca on a prayer rug? If he does will it be an insult to Islam, and what if he doesn’t? I always hear about how Islam is the religion of peace, but apparently it isn’t peaceful enough for CBS to put one on.

BKennedy on August 8, 2007 at 10:14 AM

I read the live feed updates at Jokersupdates.com, and read this as it was going on, and I couldn’t believe what I was reading. The forums at TWOP and Jokers went wild. They already hated Amber, and this was more fuel to the fire.

I watch and read the updates.

Don’t judge me!

Stormy70 on August 8, 2007 at 10:16 AM

I don’t wanna waste 6 minutes of my life; but I hope it wasn’t the blond that sounds like she is maybe 10 years old; she’s kinda cute – but no doubt dumb as a post (even better!). Wouldn’t surprise me about some of the others. 2-3 of the people in that house creep me out.

And, yes, I’m sad to admit that I have been so bored that I actually watched 30-45 minutes of the overnight broadcast on showtime, where it airs. Sad. I know. Don’t remind me.

lorien1973 on August 8, 2007 at 10:33 AM

Do any of you know young people? This is so typical of how they talk. What I find amazing is how they will discuss “Jews” and “blacks” while standing there with their Jewish and black friends. Heck, the blacks make fun of themselves, using the “n” word all the time. Here in this video, didn’t she say that the Jewish guy said that his nose was a part of his “Jewish” side?

These “slurs” don’t bother this generation in the least. They think nothing of calling each other names by race or gender or anything. In fun or not in fun.

We are reaping what we sowed here people. We raised a generation on sophmoric movies with slurs, Dave Chapelle and the like. Now we are outraged? Too late.

Rightwingsparkle on August 8, 2007 at 10:48 AM

I would’ve thought that in all that extra web-feed and Showtime footage people would at least be naked. This show really does suck!

It does vaguely remind me of Sartre’s “No Exit,” though.

Blacklake on August 8, 2007 at 10:49 AM

Why do you think I tuned in! Alas, no nudity. I got treated to 45 minutes of people eatin pizza and burping. That was exciting.

One chick was taking a shower, but no mood music, no closeups, no nothing. Disappointing.

lorien1973 on August 8, 2007 at 10:51 AM

What a shocker!

Who would have thought that a cocktail waitress from Vegas doesn’t come off as Ghandi-like when cooped up with a bunch of other losers for an entire summer?

Personally, I’d like to see all the Presidential wannabes participate in Big Brother- Campaign Edition. It would be very revealing about the wannabes characters when one gets to see them outside the scripted moments where they are perfectly coiffed and prepped. The public should see the real candidates. Does Mitt Romney snore? Does Obama drink milk straight from the carton? What does Hillary look like first thing in the morning (might engender sympathy for Bill)? Etc….

Strange question… is this what went out over the air? That’s an awful lot of F-bombs to have been played over the air… the FCC could have a fine field day with this clip, and that’s BEFORE you take into account the ethnic slurs…

Not true. The show has already been rock bottom but (apparently) has enough gawkers that it is in its eigth season and compared to some of the other reality programming it comes off as Masterpiece Theater or did you miss National Bingo Night or Fat March or not one but two different karaoke shows.? More importantly don’t you remember Season One Big Brother and the cast member who left after essentially threatening another loser with a knife? That’s far worse than the current crop!

Is being Jewish a Race or a religion?
I know a person of any race can convert and be Jewish.

Then again there are allot of Jewish people that are atheist.

Hum? conundrum?

TheSitRep on August 8, 2007 at 9:21 AM

I’m really tired of hearing this question. But its a public service to answer.

First of all, being a Jew is not the same as being black. Someone can convert to Judaism, one cannot convert to “black”. So it is obviously not a race.

Of course it is a religion. But it is more. In the Torah Jews are referred to as a nation. So that, in fact, is what Jews are, a nation, the Hebrew nation. With our own state, the State of Israel. But before Israel, Jews had a nation until 70 A.D. when the Temple was destroyed in Jerusalem and thus the Diaspora.

I suppose it depends on who you ask though. Hitler didn’t consider being Jewish a religion or a nation. Rather, he persecuted people for being the Jewish “race.” Even if they were affiliated with another religion (or not at all), they were still considered a race by the Nazis. In fact, I believe that the Nazis believed that if a Jewish person was actually worshipping as a Christian or another religion, they were just “posing” as not being Jewish. And they couldn’t change their “race” as being Jewish. So again, I guess it depends on who you ask.

I deeply suspect that the terrorists don’t really care either. If you’re Jewish, you’re Jewish and that’s enough of a reason for the terrorists, yes?

I don’t see why not. Didn’t Michael Jackson converted to white? I also seem to recall that at some point Bill Clinton became black, supposedly.

Or maybe people who convert to Judaism just aren’t “authentically” Jewish. Is there a Jewish analogue to Al Sharpton? We could ask him.

In season 6 & 7 they had a contestant named Kayser (SP?) who talked about his faith on one show but CBS never once made fun of him in any way. He was actually the “golden” boy but he got WORKED in both seasons.

I do find the constant references to God’s will by the various contestants be a little annoying but for CBS mock Jameka when she was clearly distressed and needing some spiritual guidance to be rude and insensitive.

Jameka’s problem is she forgets this is a game with STRANGERS! You owe them nothing. She had the chance to snake 5k and 10k in cash during two events and passed so she could help someone else. Stupid move. She’s done next 2-3 weeks since she gave up HOH competitions to try and win POV. DUMB DUMB DUMB. She could 15k richer at the minimum.

Malpaso on August 8, 2007 at 9:17 AM

I confess – thanks to my ladylove and her atrocious taste in television, I’ve seen most of this show. I’ve also had the joy of watching every episode of “The Bachelor.” Can you feel my pain? (But I missed it last night! Who won POV? Will they take Jen off the block? Is Kail going home this week? Oh, sweet Lord, kill me now, someone kill me now.)

What can I say? I’m in love. It makes you do stupid things. Then again, she’ll sit with me and watch O’Reilly and Hannity & Colmes … and I’m not sure they’re really that much less stupid than “Big Brother.”

But since I’ve seen this debacle of a show, I can confirm Malpaso’s comment: “Amber” here is a human train wreck. She cries – no joke – at least half a dozen times every episode. In fact, her weeping jags are about the best entertainment on the show.

Here’s an interesting tidbit about this anti-Semitic piece of human garbage that CBS isn’t publicizing: while she may claim to be a weepy model of Christian virtue, she’s admitted not only to having TWO abortions, but the child (children) she claims to have mothered constantly … are(is) not in her custody (apparently she lost custody because she’s junkie) … and best of all, she apparently lied to her boyfriend about having two MORE abortions. Kids gone to drugs, two abortions, and two fake(?) abortions.

But it’s the joooooooooos who are the bad people, huh?

Yeah, she’s really a peach. And yes, the fact that I know this is embarrassing. Deeply. Then again, can also name the final four in “20 vs. 40: Age of Love.” So my embarrassment can go deeper.

Here’s a link discussing this vapid venomous vixen. I warn you: you’ll lose IQ points if you follow the link. But it’ll give you a taste of what a true waste of oxygen this hideous thing really is:

Oh, unclench. Seriously, I’m a NAZI suddenly? I’ll have to let the fam know. I’m sure that’ll come as a shock to them.

During the 1930′s the Jews of Germany and such thought of themselves as German or whatever place they happened to be citizens of. Weren’t they surprised when the Nazis informed them that no matter what their citizenship was they were still racially Jewish. Nothing could change that – atheism, baptism, etc. They were still killed because they were RACIALLY Jewish based on the rather bizarre thinking of the Nazis. Thus the Holocaust was born out of racial thinking, not religious thinking.

I find much of what Rev. Jesse Jackson does and says to be hypocritical and inflammatory. But can we please stop update his list of transgressions. The Hymie Town remark was made in 1984. It was stupid then as it is now.

But I would need SONAR, GPS and a Fruit Loops decoder ring to find a gathering of Republicans wherein the majority of them have not uttered some racist slur or remark in the past 23 years. In fact, I would say that Jesse Jackson is a much slicker in veiling his true feelings than most of us.

Think back 23 years: Ask yourself, has anyone in your family, your peer group, your church or job used nigger, spic, nip, kike, sand nigger, cracker, chink or wetback in your presence? Do you still give them such grief?

Am I supposed to believe that none of our favorite people have done so? PUH-LEASE!

Let’s update our list of grievances so as to reflect our own standards. Jesse is a whiner and blowhard. But I doubt he is any more racist or exclusive in his actions than many here, their families or friends.

RE: Bigot Brother
This show deals in racism for profit. Other than sex, race is the one hot button gauranteed to garner at least a passing glance from all of us media rubbernecks.

Remember the Bollywood actress last year in UK Big Brother. I think Australian Big Brother has had its share of race baiting. Hell, Survivor segragated its entire cast as a promotional event.

Something that is noteworthy, however is that anti-Semitism still gets a big yawn from lots of Americans. In fact, aside from Republicans, I think Jews are the most misrepresented group of Americans today. Christians come in a close second.

Quite honestly, I just never got the jokes. I’ve lived several Jewish people and went to a University where Judaism rivaled Christianity as the main religion. If I were going to stereotype Jews, I would take every negative image put forth, then reverse it.

Wow. I admit I’m a Canadian conservative and not a Republican, but I’ve been at many a political gathering with candidates, volunteers, staffers, and never do I recall one of those words, or its Canadian racist terms (we have a few) uttered.

I always find myself, when someone makes an idiotic anti-Semetic comment, to sneak up behind them and start wailing: “The Jooooooooooooos! The JOOOOOOOOOooooos! They’re going to force you to eat matza and live in a Democratic society where you are free to worship! Its all a Zionist conspiracy I tell you! JooooOOOOOoooos!”

I’m actually surprised it wasn’t Dick that did it in one of his tirades. We know he is a liberal, he has rabid BDS, and I suspect he is a Truther based on some of the comments he’s made, although I’m not positive on that. He’s a big internet forum junkie, wouldn’t be surprised to find out he’s a KOS Kiddie, or a member of DU. I totally wouldn’t have been surprised to hear him say it when he went off on Eric this past weekend.
