When Being Green is Just Plain Yellow-originally published by Irish Examiner USA
Can’t believe we’ve learned nothing about why people riot. Because they can thanks to MSM. My last column
Since I learned my brother has stage 4 colon cancer. If you can help please donate to his page
Some American Jews need to look in the mirror when looking for blame in the rise of global anti-Semitism. Many are self-loathing Jews who insist that our government should not be kowtowing to Israeli interests. They also always vote for the Democrat Party whose leaders mouth platitudes of support for Israel but in reality lend it to those who’ve vowed to destroy that small country. Thanks to the biased, propagandized coverage of the Gaza crisis, anti-Israel protests have exploded around the Globe. They really have nothing so much to do with Gaza as it is a venting of anti-Semitic hatred freely exposed.
I’ve written dozens of columns relating to the overt demonstrations of anti-Semitism voiced in various segments of society because those voicing them felt that I, as a Catholic, shared their hatred. Only in Israel do we still hear that mantra-“Never again” when referring to the Holocaust. Many American Jews think that such a horror is impossible. Yet we now see thousands of protests against Jews in Paris and even in Chicago where shouts of “kill the Jews” ring out in the streets. Jewish businesses are being torched. Jewish students in Chicago are being told to, “get into the ovens.”
Those awful words were heard in Crown Heights in 1991 during the Dinkins administration during a three day pogrom that raged before the mayor made any effort to end it with police force. While the Middle East explodes in violence and anti-Semitic mobs rage through Europe and in Canada, Obama blightly continues to fundraise for the DNC. Guess who is still donating to this loser of a party? Jeffrey Katzenberg, Harvey Weinstein, Steven Spielberg, David Zuckerberg and so many others who should know by now that this administration is no friend of Israel. One supposes that these non secular Jews believe they are safe from the anti-Semitism. They may be successful in business and the arts but they are beyond dumb when it comes to politics.
I hated how my editors at the NY Sun wrote headlines that did not fit the column. Ditto at the Staten Island Advance. The Irish Examiner USA editor Graham Curtis was great . Too bad they quit publishing
Can’t make any money writing so I’m reviving my art career for a spell. Maybe I’ll be the next Grandma Moses but I’ve actually been painting way before I started writing op-ed columns for newspapers. I was actually a child prodigy and could draw well at 6. I was president of the Artist Federation at Snug Harbor for a few years but found the whole art world is very incestuous and full of untalented phonies. Never could care for that crowd and still don’t know what makes for valuable work today. I know that Van Gogh would still be a starving artist today because critics are full of it too. Take a gander at my gallery and you’ll notice I have no real style. I paint whatever I feel like painting..
I hope to get some commissions from the show because my offer is rather unique. I will paint a large abstract in whatever colors you wish for your home or condo. After we agree on price, all you need to do is provide canvas and you will pay agreed on price only if satisfied.
My webmaster enlarged the donate button but said no one would donate anyway. Not much support there and she’s my daughter. LOL
and that includes many so-called conservatives. Here’s my latest and last for a while while I try and earn some cash
