Antisemitic Dumbass of the Day

Someone didn’t get the memo that the word “Zionist” is to be used as a replacement for the word “Jew”… not as an adjective to it.

EX-Cabinet Minister Robert Jenrick has revealed he recently received a letter telling him to “teach his ‘Jewish Zionist wife’ to ‘put out fires’” – adding the sender had “intended to burn our house down and cremate our children.”

Opening Thursday’s Holocaust Memorial Debate in Westminster Jenrick gave the personal insight into modern day anti-Jewish hatred as he spoke in the House of Commons.

At the end of a debate in which 40 MPs across all parties spoke, Jenrick said the Jewish prayer – Oseh shalom bimromav – telling parliamentarians he was reciting it “in honour of the six million souls who perished in the Holocaust.”

In an emotional speech he told MPs:” Some of us here have been on the receiving end of antisemitism—I know the Member for Barking (Dame Margaret Hodge) has on many occasions.

“I recently received a letter telling me to teach my “Jewish Zionist wife” to “put out fires”, as they intended to burn our house down and cremate our children.”

But I guess in a world where ‘solidarity’ is a verb, “Zionist” can be used as an adjective to “Jew”!
