Akansas News ^ | 5/14/2009 | Zack Stovall

A self-professed gaffe-prone Republican state senator who is challenging Democratic U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln’s re-election bid said Thursday he regrets referring to Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., as “that Jew” at a Pulaski County GOP meeting last week.

Should’ve instead referred to him as “that posterboy for term limits.”

Hendren is a Republican, ergo, Hendren is guilty of a “hate crime” and should step down immediately and face prosecution.

Agreed?

Schumer is a Jew? If this is true, why does he act like a Nazi?

If he had made a reference to “Hymietown,” nobody would have cared.

An indefensible comment, but is anyone else pushing this story besides posters on FR (from local Arkansas websites)? I haven’t even seen this on DU yet, and they are always ready to chew. Just an observation.

I’ve never heard of this guy in my life until a few hours ago.

  Doesn't apologizing for calling him a Jew, necessarily imply that there is something wrong with being a Jew? 

I'd be more upset with the apology than the accusation if I were a Jew.

You should hear what we Jews say about Schumer.

He is the only man alive who has been described as a “smuck” in 50 different spellings of that word.

We also use “putz”, “dork”, “weenie”, “a-hole”, duffus, dog turd, and other terms of endearment to describe him, besides declaring that he is one of the dumbest members of the Congress, that he helps our enemies with his stupidity, and is not allowed in our synagogues (we put miniature copies of the Constitution on our shuals’ doors to keep him out - a sort of garlic-equivalent used on vampires).

If this were the 1930’s, we would be calling him a Stalinist toadie.

Please, the crap the rats call Republicans pales in comparison. Besides, the majority of the Jewish vote in the US is mostly socialist who would vote rat no matter who is on the ballot or the effect on Israel.

Many Jews are fine and moral people. Others, like Schumer seem to be self-hating and county-hating, but evil-loving and power hungry to control others under their philosophy of Lucifer worship (like Alinsky who has hillary and zer0 as deciples).

When you consider Schumer’s behavior as a Senator, you’d think it would be easy to come up with some more ‘descriptive’ words for him.

For example, every time I heard him attack W. or Cheney, the words “Schumer is a despicable coward” popped into my head.

One could also say that he is an oozing pustule of lies, and a polyp posing as a politician.

If all the other guy could come up with was “that Jew,” maybe he just needs a thesaurus, or one of those ‘Handbook[s] of Shakespearean Insults.”

Hendren said Thursday he made the remark in referring to comments Schumer made on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC, in which the New York senator said that “American traditional values” were behind them, a point Hendren said he strongly disputes.

Fortunately I did go and READ the article before I immediately 'ridiculed' this unlearned un-politically correct hick from fly-over country.

And I think it is just a bit disingenuous for this to be posted with the implication what was said was said in the 'spirit' you are attempting to make it.

I refer to Jewish people as Jews pretty frequently.

call me guilty of that most of my 51 years

I’ve called Catholics Catholics too.

and down here we constantly call Church of Christ ...those you know “Church of Christ folks...no dancing, the only ones going to heaven (well, not really anymore)

We call Mormons Mormons....

and I have even been known to call a spade a spade...I know, I am the epitome of evil now.

But I do not call Jehovah’s Witness Jehovah’s Witness, I call them Kingdom Hall people

once at a law office on Park ave in the 50s....I called a group of Lubavitch or Satmar style Jews Yiddish....lol...man, the looks on their faces.

it was pure innocence, I had no idea about Yiddish as the language and the Yiddish thing as being associated with Yid...whoops

Nachum with all due respect, I’d worry more about Moon rock worshipers wanting to annihilate your race or the rise in black hostility to Jews than some southern cracker kin of mine who in all likelihood is willing to spend America’s last dime defending yer tribe against said maniacs not being real sensitive about calling one of America’s enemies “that Jew”

I never got bent when I was “that goyish” at Seder.

but if you had when your own prejudice having said that which sounds far worse than what he said be justified.

I see this on FR all the time especially on race threads ...the indignant call racially insensitive folks toothless inbred redneck hick Deliverance type s who screw their sisters and cousins as though that sort of bigotry is excused somehow.

That sort of stuff is even worse on lib forums and IMDB (redundant I know)

Politically correct indignation is fraught with hypocrisy.

My personal opinion is that folks should get over it...everywhere and deal with being offended. I'm offended daily....hourly even when asleep...my dreams are offensive.

I doubt seriously this guy is a proponent of Jewish Extermination.

I agree. Any reference to Schumer as “That Jew” has to include “self-hating”. So “That self-hating Jew” is acceptable.

Hey, at least he didn’t call Schumer a “Hymie” like Jessie Jackson did.

I was just surfing through trying to get caught upon the latest news. This is the second time I see the 'headline' of this story out of Arkansas posted. So I decided to see who, what, where, when and WHY.

It sounded particularly 'stupid' for anyone to refer to another by 'that' this or that. But after reading the article sounds to me there was this 'natural' expectation that this office seeker had regarding 'traditional values' of which dear old Chuckie had just pronounced as DEAD.

I do not naturally think 'religion' ethnicity, or whatever when I met or read about news or society at large... I assess things based upon conservative - right and liberal - wrong. And all things considered Chuckie is just plain WRONG, and this ninny in Arkansas had better get himself indoctrinated into political correctness or he will be chewed up and spit out even if his desire is to reclaim 'traditional values'.

I think political correctness is killing our culture and got Obama elected.

It may be our greatest threat since Bush and Cheney seem to have tortured the poor Muzzies into behaving for now.

Actually, this person should withdraw. If they’re stupid enough to refer to someone as ‘that Jew’, they have no business in a position of authority.

No, it’s not okay. But isn’t it interesting how nobody takes Hillary to task from the left side of the isle when she did that. And yet we trash people on our side who should know better.

We have a moral compass. The people on the left are morally adrift.

There is political correctness and then there is being politically astute. Political correctness is a tool used and perfected by the left out of the 'rules for radicals' of Alinsky fame. There is NO sense in walking right into that trap and this guy does not have the common sense to understand that running for Senate is the big leagues. Even in 'hickville' Arkansas. There are any number of ways this man could have brought Chuckie to task for being liberal than to stamp a label that easily offends and ends up making Chuckie appear to be a victim.

Most especially since the liberals are drunk on their power trip will they allow anything rightly or wrongly go by without using it to maintain their power.

The up side is that Jewish voters in the US largely vote for the dems so few votes will be lost.

What's really weird to me is that for years I have been a critic of Schumer for his obtuse gun control positions and his general condescension. I never once thought about whether he was Jewish or not. Didn't matter. Still doesn't.

There were plenty of Democrats trying to push this story and then they took a look at the Arkansas gubernatorial election, 1982 (Democratic primary)

Bill Clinton - 236,961 (41.78%)

Joe Purcell - 166,066 (29.28%)

Jim Guy Tucker - 129,362 (22.81%)

Kim Hendren - 21,829 (3.85%)

Monroe Schwarzlose - 12,907 (2.28%)

Same Kim Hendren ~ one of THEIR boys. See that Line up ~ two criminals in it ~ Clinton and Tucker.

That last guy, Schwarzlose, is dead.

He was a turkey farmer in Cleveland County, Arkansas, who got 31 percent of the vote in the 1980 Democratic primary against Governor Clinton

He, Clinton, LOST to the late Frank Durward White, a former savings and loan association president. Did you see that ~ we look up Hendren and whadda' we get ~ TWO DEAD GUYS whose only sin seemed to be to run against Bill Clinton and "unseat him" or "embarrass him". Well hot dampt! Sounds like the Clintons eh?

Hendren does not deserve our support.

There are a lot of sources on the net concerning Bill Clinton's primaries and general elections. It's all there ~ right along with the bodies!
