This celebrity business plan is a sure road to
the yiddization of American comedy
"While assimilation is a big concern in the Jewish
community, [professor Arthur Asa] Berger contends that, conversely, Jewish
culture has 'Yiddishized' American humor. 'When the Jews disappear,' he joked,
'the Jewish humor will be written by non-Jews because they've been Yiddishized
and they'll be able to carry it on.'" - Jewish Bulletin of Northern
California, June 5, 1998
traditional Jewish humor emerged anonymously from a
collective consciousness, America has
provided a multitude of new conduits for its transmission: public meetings and
lectures, vaudeville, the
Borscht Belt, Broadway, nightclubs, radio, record albums, movies, and most
especially television, as well as widely circulating books, newspapers, and
magazines. America has made
available a popular culture that has been not only open to Jews but positively
inviting to Jewish performers and Jewish themes to a degree that was
unimaginable in Eastern Europe. There has been, of course, a price to pay for
accepting this invitation, which has resulted in the parevezation, or
neutering, of much of the material." - William Novak and Moshe
"Joan Rivers' (Joan Alexandra Molinsky) comic universe is a
parade of crude 1970s-era stereotypes. It is a realm in which the world belongs
to the rich and thin and where the poor, the obese, the aged and infirm are
pariahs to be ridiculed." - Australian Jewish News, February 24, 2003
It is impossible to imagine what humor would be like in America today
without the contribution of Eastern European Jews.
Most of the comedy in
America is written, produced and performed by Jews and has been for the last

America (love it or leave it!) because Yiddish humor has permeated American

humor took over Talmudwood in

"The Jewish style, with its heavy reliance upon
Yiddish and Yiddishisms, has emerged not only as
a comic style, but as the comic style." - Wallace Markfield, The
Yiddishization of American Humor, Esquire 1965
Yiddish humor is marked with the belittling of
individuals and individual beliefs, the
stereotyping of any type of
behavior that the Yiddish find offensive or
look down on and the quick wit that proves that
the target is an idiot while
elevating the witty one to new heights of superior cleverness.
and family structure is one of the favorite targets of Yiddish humor which
thumbs its nose at God, respect for neighbors and respect for any and all types
of thought that elevate humans above animals.

"From 'Seinfeld' to 'Mad About You' to 'Dharma and Greg' to
'The Larry Sanders Show,' Jewish humor has infiltrated popular culture. On
television, Jewish humor is the Trojan horse sneaked into the living rooms of
non-Jewish America." - Jewsweek, 2001
1948 Catholic schools conduct bonfires of comic books.
1950s Ashkenazi dominated comic book industry
raised familiar issues - public concern that they are influential in the
degradation of morals and values.
Senate investigates the matter, releasing a report labeled "Comic Books and
Juvenile Delinquency." Senate document notes that "on first impression, the
present comic book industry would seem to comprise many different publishing
firms with no apparent relationship to one another. 676 comic book titles
examined are published by 111 companies owned by only 121 persons or families
in addition to 1 corporation. The majority of the publishers maintain editorial
offices in New York City."
Subsections of the report include
"Techniques of Crime Taught by Crime and Horror Comics," "Criminal
Careers as Glamorous in Crime and Horror Comic Books", and "Defenders of
Law and Order Frequently Represented as All Powerful Beings Who Kill and Commit
Other Crimes to Defend 'Justice.'"
Ashkenazi comic book
entrepreneurs singled out by the report include direct-mail advertiser Samuel
Roth "who has for many years been engaged in using the mail to advertise lewd
and lascivious material," and Alex Segal who "testifed that 'by mistake' one of
his trays of addressograph plates bearing the names of 400 children was routed
to the publisher of sex literature."
In the listings of owners and
distributors of comic book businesses, among the best known are Marvel Comic
group (owners: Martin and Jean Goodman) and Archie Comic group (owners: Maurice
Coyne, John Goldwater, and Lewis H. Silberkleit).
"Corpses in various
states of decay and reanimation regularly adorned the covers." - Bradford W.
Mad magazine's William Gaines (EC comics) produced "the greatest
of the under-the-covers-with-a-flashlight genre." These comics, featuring new
explorations of gore, include Tales from the Crypt, Weird
Science, Shock Suspense stories, Frontline Combat, "and a few
other titles made the struggling incorporation profitable.
1954 Comics Code Authority
(CCA) formed Comics Magazine Association of America as an alternative to
government regulation, to allow the comic publishers to 'self-regulate' the
content of comic books in the United States.
EC Comics are gone, except
for the satirical Mad. William M. Gaines publishes only Mad Magazine; editors
Al Feldstein, Harvey Kurtzman; writers Frank Jacobs, Barry Leibmann, Andrew J.
Schwartzberg, Larry Siegel, Lou Silverstone.
"EC Comics offered
something of a precursor to the upheaval of the 1960s, questioning authority
before it became fashionable to question anything. In perhaps the most
notorious panel printed by EC Comics, a murderous baseball team plays a
midnight game with the limbs and
entrails of a victim. Little was left to the imagination ... Another issue
depicted a man holding a bloody ax in one hand and a woman's severed head in
the other." - Jacob Heilbrunn

The real heroes of Marvel Comics are the two
Israeli's at the corporate helm, Isaac (Ike) Perlmutter and Avi Arad. At Marvel
the key players throughout the decades, including Jack Kirby (Jacob Kurtzberg)
and Stan Lee (Stanley Lieber) creators of the Fantastic Four and Spider-Man,
have been almost exclusively Jewish. Founded in 1939 by Martin Goodman, Marvel
was a part of the so-called "golden age" of comics, when hordes of young Jewish
writers and artists, most of them struggling immigrants' sons, created armies
of imaginary superheroes like Superman and Captain America,
whose mission was to wage war against Nazis and their ilk.
No one is
more Jewish than Bugs Bunny.
'It was no accident,' observes David
Gilner, director of Libraries for Hebrew Union College, 'that Bugs Bunny's
animator was Fritz Freleng, and his voice supplied by Mel Blanc - both of whom
were Jewish.''' - Cincinnati Post, April 21, 1997

Where are all the Looney Tunes?
"Ive been a cartoonist for well over two decades and I
can offer some thought as to why the Looney Tunes characters will not succeed
in the 21st century. One reason is that viewer sensitivity has forced
censorship of the cartoons, but here is my idea of where these cartoon
characters would be today if they had continued to be the animated superstars
they were 50 years ago.
Elmer Fudd seriously lacked firearm safety and
his careless use of guns would land him in a federal prison. He would be
convicted of weapons violations to include: Possession of a firearm without a
proper permit, attempted murder and an assault with a deadly weapon. Fudd would
remain incarcerated without parole.
Bugs Bunny would come out of his
hole with the need to publicly announce his symptoms of nervousness, craving,
insomnia, and irritability which are associated with withdrawal from excessive
carrot eating. The basis for the addiction is believed to be beta carotene,
which is found in carrots. Bugs would volunteer publically for rehab in an
effort to seek sympathy from his viewers and restore his career.

"Our culture of
flagrant self-exaltation, hardwired
in the American character, permits the humiliation of all those who oppose us.
We believe, after all, that because we have the capacity to wage war we have a
right to wage war. Those who lose deserve to be erased. Those who fail, those
who are deemed ugly, ignorant or poor, should be belittled and mocked. Human
beings are used and discarded like Styrofoam boxes that held
junk food. And the numbers of
superfluous human beings are swelling the unemployment offices, the prisons and
the soup kitchens." - Chris Hedges18781942
Moses "Moe" Louis Annenberg :
Probably no fortune in America was built on a sturdier foundation of
cooperation with organized crime and the Mafia than that of
Moses "Moe" Louis Annenberg. A
newspaper circulation man by trade and a gambler to boot, Moe Annenberg rose
from poverty in the slums of South Side Chicago to accumulate the largest
estimated individual income of any person in the nationthanks to mob
Considered a "circulation genius" by
William Randolph Hearst, Moe started out in the circulation department of the
Chicago Tribune. Later, he was hired away by Hearst's new sheets in town, the
American and the Examiner, serving from 1904 to 1906 as circulation manager. He
became a grand operative during the early Chicago newspaper circulation wars,
selling newspapers with an army of sluggers, overturning the competition's
delivery trucks, burning their papers and roughing up newspaper vendors.
Moe's "genius," in fact, was muscle. His roster of sluggers reads less
like a publishing staff than a muster of public enemies. A typical Annenberg
employee was Frank McErlane. Former Chicago journalist George Murray later
described the Annenberg-McErlane relationship: "McErlane went on to become the
most vicious killer of his time. Moe Annenberg went on to become father of the
ambassador to the Court of St. James."
Under William Randolph Hearst,
Annenberg was one of the highest paid circulation men in the nation.
Hearst so valued him that he
tolerated Moe's myriad private business dealings. More than
Hearst himself, Annenberg realized
the money to be made in the racing information field, both legally and
1922 Moe buys the Daily Racing Form.
1926 Moe's various private businesses became so
big he leaves Hearst. In a few
years Moe took over the New York Morning Telegraph, Radio Guide, Screen Guide
and, most important, formed the Nation-Wide News Service in association with
the East Coast's biggest gambler, Frank Erickson, a close associate of Lucky
Luciano, Meyer Lansky and Frank Costello.
Capone brings Annenberg into the underworld's famous Atlantic City Conference,
the gathering at which the groundwork was laid for the national crime
syndicate. Capone and Annenberg iron out the details of a syndicated racing
wire in discussions on the boardwalk. Nation-Wide brought in a flood of money.
The service received its information from telegraph and telephone wires hooked
into 29 race tracks and from those tracks into 223 cities in 30 states, where
thousands of poolrooms and bookie joints operated in violation of local laws.
Annenberg becomes the fifth largest customer of American Telephone and
Telegraph, making transmissions only slightly behind RCA and the three press
associations. With Annenberg's cooperation that Meyer Lansky sews up for
himself his preeminent gambling position in Miami and Florida's lush East
1930s Annenberg takes over the
century-old Philadelphia Inquirer and through it becomes a power in Republican
Party politicsa "respectable" citizen.
1939 Moe and his only son, Walter, are indicted for income tax
evasion. For the year 1932 the government found Annenberg owed $313,000 and
paid only a paltry $308. For 1936 alone Annenberg owed an estimated $1,692,000
and paid $470,000, still not the epitome of civic-mindedness. All told, along
with interest and penalties, Moe's unpaid taxes came to $9.5 million. Annenberg
claimed that, because much of his activities came during a period of national
Democratic dominance, his legal troubles were politically inspired.
More accurate was the evaluation of the
New York Times,
reporting that the money gush became so large "it apparently did not seem worth
while to give the government its share." Walter pleaded not guilty and finally
Moe, in what some observers to the conversation regarded as the epitome of
paternal devotion, declared: "It's the best gamble. I'll take the rap."
Moe was in his 60s and his lawyers advised that a guilty plea by him
could well lead to the dropping of charges against his son. The gamble paid
off. Moe got a three-year prison term and handed the government $9.5 million in

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over
the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more
power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general

results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social
structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a
