L'Affaire Matzo Reaches Another Level

When I first read Kevin Fischer's "matzo-skinned lefties" blog post my first reaction was more or less to scratch my head. It frankly took a moment to process the literal meaning of the phrase, but in the process of doing that I started to get an odd feeling.

I was still not really sure what to make of the comment, preferring to give the author the benefit of the doubt, but I really can not do that any longer. This afternoon we found this old post on Fischer's FranlinNow blog that raises all kinds of red flags in the context of the "matzo-skinned lefties" comment. The title of the post is -- and I'm not kidding about this* -- "Is he an anti-Semite, or is he right?"

In the post Fischer discusses an LA Times article that talks about the following incident:
Asked about his contract negotiations, Richardson said he didn't expect problems because "I've got big-time lawyers. Big-time Jew lawyers."

Alarmed, the reporters warned Richardson that his words could be considered insulting because they fit the stereotype of Jews as crafty and shrewd.

Richardson didn't even blink. "Are you kidding me?" he demanded. "They've got the best security system in the world. Have you ever been to an airport in Tel Aviv? They're real crafty. Listen, they are hated all over the world, so they've got to be crafty. They got a lot of power in this world, you know what I mean? Which I think is great. I don't think there's nothing wrong with it. If you look in most professional sports, they're run by Jewish people. If you look at a lot of most successful corporations and stuff, more businesses, they're run by Jewish [sic]. It's not a knock, but they are some crafty people."
To which Fischer adds the following:
So Micheal Ray Richardson said Jews are crafty and skilled at security. Was he insensitive? Was he offensive? Be honest. What went running through your mind the instant you read the above comments?
Well, we certainly know what Kevin Fischer was thinking when he read those comments...

There's more to the post that should be read, but the phrasing of the graph above is pretty onerous. Here's a link to the original LA Times piece. Read the whole thing, then read Fischer's take. There are many layers to the post above that should be looked at but in the end I found myself back with the same gut feeling of "This isn't good." The "matzo-skinned" post made me confused, but this one makes me instantly uncomfortable and casts the "matzo-skinned" comment in another light entirely.

*Yes, it's a play on the title of the LA Times piece, but it still doesn't sit well with us.
