New Low for Tebow Derangement Syndrome: Broncos Win Could Mean Mosques, Synagogues Burn
NewsBusters ^ | 14 Dec 2011 | Ken Shepherd

Posted on 12/14/2011 4:12:12 PM PST by mandaladon

Huston has a screen capture that shows the Hammerman post before he scrubbed it of its offensive passage.

One Rabbi Joshua Hammerman, a columnist for The Jewish Week, went off the deep end into a cesspool of anti-Tim Tebow derangement in his December 12 post, "My Tim Tebow" problem.

Former NewsBuster Warner Todd Huston noted the most offensive passage of Hammerman's screed at the website HoosierAccess.com. This paragraph has since been scrubbed from Hammerman's post:

If Tebow wins the Super Bowl, against all odds, it will buoy his faithful, and emboldened faithful can do insane things, like burning mosques, bashing gays and indiscriminately banishing immigrants. While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.

It's so laughably absurd you'd think this were from The Onion. But Hammerman appears to be dead serious, even in his sanitized post, where grafs like these make clear Hammerman is a) a die-hard Boston sports fan and b) mentally unbalanced:

I admire much of what Tebow stands for. His mom’s decision to risk her own life rather than abort her fetus flies against my own – and Judaism’s – values, but neither am I pro-choice in all cases. His story is so improbable that if he were to win it all, a part of me would be wondering whether there is a Purpose behind it, just as I saw a divine hand in the equally unbelievable Red Sox victory of 2004. And it makes me wonder whether other Jews, the ones who don’t happen to have advanced degrees in religion and a few decades of rabbinic experience, might be even more seduced by this unfolding drama.

People who don’t understand the real relationship behind Tim’s faith is a loving, selfless Lord that does not promote this hatred those on the outside seem to spew at every possible turn.

Seems more likely that some liberal whacko would burn a Christian church.

I am just waiting for liberal heads to explode when someone puts a kneeling Tebow in an outdoor Nativity scene.

The Jewish Week just pulled the column. It had to be one of the most irrational examples of bigotry I’ve seen in a long time. It doesn’t surprise me that a bigoted crank would write it; it does surprise me that a prominent paper would publish it.

Given the history of bigotry endured by the Jewish people, that a rabbi would pen such venom is mind-boggling.

Yes, what burned when it looked like Sarah was going to go places. Oh yeah, not gays or mosques, it was the church she attended. Did she do it herself? {sarc}

Don't you think this means that they are ashamed to have published it; they know it was wrong; and they have done the best they could to correct their error?

I'm offended by the Tim Tebow worship I see creeping up. Eventually he won't win, will the acolytes say he's lost God's favor? It's just absurd.

It's just a game. He's just a player.

Many Jewish liberals are a lot more scared of conservative Christians then they are of Jihadi Muslims. However, I know several who think for themselves and say they would never vote for Obama again.

The Tebow thing is just mental masturbation for liberal “intellectuals”.

I always find it amazing the left thinks if "Christians" get too much power they will impose their beliefs on the rest of the country...as if Christians would ignore free association laws or God given freedom and liberty to throw out our constitutional republic for a theocracy.... diametrically opposing concepts

They must think we are Islamic or Marxist

This rabbi has his yarmulke on too tight. I think he ate some bad gefilte fish. The bellyache is making him meshugge.

He oughtta stop kvetching already before he turns into a total putz.

I don't believe they will beat the Patriots this Sunday. Brady embarrassed himself against Washington last Sunday. If he puts fewer than 28 points up in the first half, I'll be shocked. I love the Tebow story; I love even more what he does to the haters every time he pulls of a comeback. Problem is, as bad as the NE defense is, our offense stands every chance of putting a comeback well out of reach, even for Tebow. Granted, NE does not play well in Denver, so all I will say is, it will be a game not to be missed.

That is what I wrote to the columnist. Basically...if ISLAM wins, then synagogues burn...and gays are bashed. COUNT ON IT.

Amazing to me they don't see it...but then again...the god of this world has blinded them so...not so amazing after all.

Screw the Broncos, and screw Tim Tebow, that’s just part of being sports fans.

Thanks to Tebow for beating the Bears, that was epic!

The Lions get Suh back for the season — that should make all the Tebow drones reach for their betablockers — and have managed to remain in wild card contention, in part thanks to Tim Tebow and the Broncos, who put Chicago a game back. Only the Falcons now.

This is nuts:

You know, it's BEMs (Booger Eating Morons) like this that sometimes make me ashamed to be a Jew.

Just the association with a lunatic like that makes my skin crawl.

Rabbi Hammerhead is like all libs after 9/11 who predicted right-wingers would go around and massacre Muslims. It never happened. They also said Americans would pursue and slaughter Koreans after the massacre at Virginia Tech. It never happened. What might be the scariest thing in the world is the inside of a liberal mind. They appear to be the most paranoid people in the world.

Typical Jewish anti-Christian bigot. This effort to harm Christians through character smears, intolerance and official manipulation and suppression is common in our society. I’m sick of it. What slugs.

Anti-Christian bigots are afraid Christians will be as nasty and hateful to them as they are to Christians. If Christians operated on an eye for and eye rule of justice, they know they would they would have no eyes.

I'm not offended by it, but it has really come on quickly. I agree; if he starts playing poorly; he will probably lose a lot of instant fans.

I sure hope so. But that doesn't excuse the fact that they published it in the first place. Their editorial review board read it and had no problem with it until they started getting the criticism. The one good to come out of this is that the comments under the article --whether they came from Christians, Jews or even atheists -- almost uniformly condemned the column as a bizarre, bigoted rant.
