SNL’s Michael Che Finds Antisemitic Blood Libels Funny
Saturday Night Live “comedian” Michael Che made news last year after he joked that the winner for ‘Miss Hitler’ was Miss Israel.
“GoDaddy has shut down a website that hosts a ‘Miss Hitler’ beauty pageant. Coincidentally ‘Miss Hitler Beauty Pageant’ was the working title for ‘The Ingraham Angle.’ By the way Colin (his co-host), if you’re wondering who the winner of the ‘Miss Hitler’ pageant was Miss Israel.”
Because antisemitism is hilarious.
At least in Che’s mind; instead of being more sensitive in the wake of the backlash last time, he’s gone ahead and done it again.

Besides not being funny, it also happens to be a pernicious lie, whose goal can only be to stoke hatred against Israel and, more specifically, the Jewish people. As I have posted before, Israel’s vaccination program is open to all of Israel’s citizens – including our non-Jewish minorities – as well as palestinian Arabs under our jurisdiction.
SNL’s producer is the Jewish Lorne Michaels. Will he act against this antisemitism?
