“Oh, great, an anti-Semitic talking bear,”
What’s in question here is the hypocritical Left mustering all of the arrogance and sanctimony it can bring to bear, to indulge itself in the grand illusion of being the epitome of virtue and good will on the world’s stage, and end up with its pants hanging loosely around its ankles.
Arrogantly they believe in the misguided notion that their Leftist credentials are an automatic shield against, and an immunization shot from, the same bigoted virus that effects the rest of humanity. In fact, I’ll go a step further and say that they actually believe they reign so morally supreme above us ”mere mortals”, that any act of racism and bigotry on their part will be automatically understood as being ”funny”, a ”gag”.
JSpace: Mark Wahlberg joined his teddy bear costar to present the award for best sound editing. The bit had a rocky start, as MacFarlane—through Ted—began listing some Jewish stars in the audience. The X-rated bear then claimed to have Jewish heritage, revealing that his birth name was Theodore Shapiro. Ted believed this would gain him easy entrance into the “secret synagogue meeting” of the Hollywood elite.
“I would like to donate money to Israel and continue to work in Hollywood forever,” the bear said.
“You’re an idiot,” Wahlberg retorted.
The skit was met with uncomfortable laughter.
