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?
