WATCH: Stephen Colbert Mocks Living Daylights Out Of “Jew-S-A!” Antisemite
As you know, I love to mock the Jew haters.
I might just need to meet with Stephen Colbert, so he can pass on his wisdom to me. Because he does it LIKE A BOSS.
Update: George Lindell in all his dumbass glory:
The Phoenix man spent Monday trying to explain why his chanting what sounded like “Jew-S-A” at the Saturday rally was not meant as a slur.
“I want to talk to everybody,” Lindell said Monday. He’s a painter for hire and had a job scheduled, but he put it off so he could respond. Local television stations were calling, so were national websites. He said CNN was trying to arrange something.
Lindell needed to do the interviews, he said, to counter what people are saying about him. “They’re calling me racist, calling me all kinds of names.”
Some also have accused him of being a plant, a Hillary Clinton supporter paid to chant an epithet to paint Trump supporters in a negative light.
“Do I look like I got paid?” Lindell said.
He does not. He was sitting Monday in the sparse warehouse he uses for his painting business. It is also where he lives.
Lindell insists his chant was not a reference to the Jewish people or religion. He would not do that, he said. He would not denigrate an entire group of people.
“We’re all created equal,” he said. “We’re all different.”
Lindell said he has a rational explanation for his chant. What sounded like “Jew,” was in fact, he said, a chance to show allegiance with Spanish speakers who chant the country’s initials with a heavy accent.
He got a few glances from other attendees when he started chanting “Jew-S-A” at the rally. But no one told him to stop.
Lindell said he did not do it to taunt, but to show solidarity with Mexicans.
He said he saw a group of Hispanics, including some children, standing around him. The children, he said, began chanting U-S-A, but it came out sounding like “Joo-S-A.” They soon stopped, he said.
“They felt they wouldn’t fit in because of their accent,” he said.
That is why, he said, he started chanting “Jew-S-A” at the rally.
Though, he said, it has been a habit of his for years, since his days of growing up around Latinos in his Maryvale neighborhood.
“That’s always the way I’ve said it: Jew-S-A,” he said. “I like the way it sounds. I like Jew-S-A because it has more flair.”
And, as the crowd chanted “U-S-A” again, he started his “Jew-S-A” chant, ending it by muttering something. Lindell said he muttered, “The Jews run the country anyway.”
Lindell said that phrase was “just horsing around.”
