Get­ting the “Kike” Out of the World Se­ries

The Jewish Voice - - EDITORIAL -

There's this base­ball star, En­rique Her­nan­dez who plays for the Na­tional League Cham­pi­ons, the Los An­ge­les Dodgers, who chooses to use as a nick­name ..... "Kike." As a thinly veiled cover-up by the me­dia in its col­umns re­port­ing on his hero sta­tus, his name is printed with an ac­cent mark over the fi­nal "e" and the an­nounc­ers skirt re­al­ity by pro­nounc­ing it Key-Kay. But not one men­tion that his name is ac­tu­ally a slur on the Jewish race. "Kike" is the an­cient and cur­rent, vile hate word for ..... Jew. So where's the out­cry from the Jewish com­mu­nity or from the hordes of civil rights ad­vo­cates who pounce on ev­ery­thing re­sem­bling what they at any given mo­ment con­sider "hate speech" against blacks, that this ma­jor lea­guer has a cho­sen name that de­means, de­bases and den­i­grates Jews?

Florida Con­gress­woman Fred­er­ica Wil­son,speak­ing with CNN this past Fri­day, called White House Chief of staff, Gen. John Kelly a "racist" for call­ing her an "empty bar­rel" when crit­i­ciz­ing her for lis­ten­ing in to the Pres­i­dent's phone call to a griev­ing widow whose hus­band was killed while on a mil­i­tary mis­sion in Africa. "Th t's a racist term. We looked it up in the dic­tio­nary be­cause I had never heard of an empty bar­rel." We em­u­lated the low-brow Con­gress­woman and us­ing Web­ster's New World Dic­tio­nary, Thi d Col­lege Edi­tion, we found no men­tion of "empty bar­rel" but did fin "Kike" described as, "A Jew: a vul­gar term of hos­til­ity and con­tempt." Planned Par­ent­hood im­me­di­ately jumped into the racist rant with a leader of that baby killing or­ga­ni­za­tion stat­ing that Kelly is "part of a pat­tern of Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion at­tack­ing and un­der­min­ing Black women." And then MSNBC host Lawrence O'Don­nell ac­cused Gen. Kelly of "de­hu­man­iz­ing" a black woman. But not one word about the name ...... Kike!

So, where is the pride of Jews who were chased out of their home­lands and came to this coun­try as pen­ni­less im­mi­grants and are now pil­lars of this great na­tion, who sit back and per­mit their own peo­ple, their com­mu­nity, their her­itage to be at­tacked and vil­i­fied over and over by out­right racists and don't have the courage to stand up and not only an­swer back but fight back? Al Sharp­ton, who was a fi­nal­ist in the 2004 Demo­crat Pres­i­den­tial pri­maries, back in 1991 chal­lenged the Jews to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to his house and he'd teach them a les­son. When in Is­rael he said he was in Hell. And you know about the "Hymi­etown" us­age by Jesse Jackson. But the Pro­gres­sive, Lib­eral, Demo­crat Jewish com­mu­nity al­ways came up with some po­lit­i­cally cor­rect lame ex­cuses for planned "slips of the tongue" by these and other Jew haters. Blacks stand up mil­i­tantly and do not coun­te­nance any signs of big­otry to­ward their peo­ple. Jews ac­tu­ally en­cour­age such slan­der and hate ver­biage by act­ing as "less-than's" with their si­lence and ba­si­cally by mur­mur­ing apolo­gies in the form of re­main­ing mute in the face of big­otry.

So with LA in the World Se­ries, look for this Kike guy to grab head­lines without any men­tion by the com­men­ta­tors about his name. Just think­ing out loud ..... ould any­one make it to star­dom with the "N" word spelled out in let­ters as a mon­icker?
