The Arkansas Senator & That Jew

The Arkansas Senator & That Jew May 14, 2009

Arkansas State Senator, Kim Hendren, wants to upgrade to the U.S. Senate. Unfortunately, during a speech to the Pulaski County Republican party, he hit a little snag. He referred to Senator Chuck Schumer as “that Jew.”

“I don’t use a teleprompter and occasionally I put my foot in my mouth.”

“At the meeting I was attempting to explain that unlike Sen. Schumer, I believe in traditional values, like we used to see on ‘The Andy Griffith Show.”

“I made the mistake of referring to Sen. Schumer as ‘that Jew’ and I should not have put it that way as this took away from what I was trying to say.”

Is this really an apology? What does this say about Hendren’s definition of “traditional values?” I guess, since America was founded as a Christian nation, we should remain Jew-free, just like Andy Griffin’s home town. God knows Opie never had to be bar mitzvahed, Aunt Bea never once made gefilte fish with the fish Andy and Opie caught, and I’m pretty sure the show didn’t close with a whistled version of, “If I Were A Rich Man.”

Also, notice how Hendren says his words “that Jew,” only took away from what he was trying to say. So put a different way, “That Jew’s a problem, but let’s don’t focus on him right now.”

What is wrong with this man?

Unless… Hendren was watching the credits of The Andy Griffith Show and saw one of the producers had the name Aaron Ruben. Then dumbfounded, he saw a chief writer by the name Everett Greenbaum. This revelation would verify his fears that there were no Jews in Mayberry, but they were behind the scenes pulling all the strings. Just like that damn Illuminati.

 

Side Note: Just because it’s awesome, and it’s somewhat related, here’s the best Bar Mitzvah Speech ever:
