Skip to comments.Anti-Semitism at Anti Zimmerman Protest: T-Shirt Says ‘You Ashkenazi Crafted Devil’
Posted on 07/17/2013 4:45:51 PM PDT by SJackson
A man leading a demonstration against the recent acquittal of George Zimmerman in a murder trial that mesmerized the United States, was caught on camera wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with anti-Semitic language, Breitbart.com reports.
Shots of the protester and his T-shirt, were broadcast on KTLA-5 Los Angeles, and featured by the Los Angeles Times neither of which spotted the offensive language. The shirt reads: YOU ASHKENAZI CRAFTED DEVIL, an apparent reference to Zimmerman, who is not Jewish as his name might suggest.
The term Ashkenazi refers to Jews of Eastern European origin, rather than Sephardic Jews who lived in Arab and Latin countries. While both groups trace their lineage back to Spain, Ashkenazi Jews primarily went north, into Europe after being expelled from the country in 1492, while Sephardic Jews headed south to the Magreb, North Africa and Asia or to European trading capitals, London and Amsterdam, where they maintained separate traditions.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Well, every demonstration needs a T Shirt. And no, Ashkenazi Jews aren't Spaniards who headed north, Ashkenaz being the name of todays Germany back to about the 4th century. But it's not the point of the article or tshirt. Poor George Zimmerman not only got un-Hispaniced, but he became a Jew. To the haters
The term is “grafted devil” - this is reference to the Nation of Islam’s belief that white people are the descendants of the reanimated bloodless corpses of black people that were grafted together by an evil sorcerer/scientist named Jakub.
What does that mean?
The actual word used was Crafted...but the meaning might have been the same.
See post 3.
That is just plain nutty.
Good grief! Is this true? I always knew they were nutty, but I honestly didn’t know they were that nutty. This makes Mormon beliefs look almost rational...
Thank you for reminding me of that. Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X and Farrakhan would have done great in Hollywood, but they’ve probably done OK doing what they do.. Didn’t know the considered Jacob evil, though that he created white people I knew, thought it was kind of a progression thing for blacks to take over later. Anyway, could make a great movie, not enough money in tshirts.
Tolerating the ignorance of the intolerant is getting way out of hand. Walmart should start offering free lobotomies. Wonder how many people looking for something for nothing would go for it.
Nation of Islam BS rearing it’s ugly head .
If you were to venture into Northern New Mexico, you would find grave stones in the old cemeteries with the Star of David and menorahs. The people there do not remember being Jewish, but these were Jewish Spaniards kicked out of Spain. Zimmerman probably is Jewish but doesn’t know it.
As far as anti-Semitism goes, I suppose it’s easier for some people to substitute Jews as THE problem than to have a coherent thought.
I am always surprised by anti-Semitic thought. I guess the hatred is so old it is just reflex. But I don’t know. Hate is hate. My people hated the Irish and wore kilts, chased the wee buggers with the claymore...
So, he’s not white, and he’s not Jewish, and he’s not a racist. Can’t these malcontents get anything right about Zimmerman?
You get the darndest things from Zazzle.
Did they really hate them or were they just annoyed at the singing?
Must be someone like me.
We have had people acting like Nazis in this country for awhile. Everyone ignores it, because it wouldn’t be politically correct to point it out.
They’re irrational. Facts don’t matter.
Where does George Zimmerman’s family have any connection to New Mexico?
“The term is ‘grafted devil’ - this is reference to the Nation of Islams belief that white people are the descendants of the reanimated bloodless corpses of black people that were grafted together by an evil sorcerer/scientist named Jakub.”
*Yeesh!* Sounds like an Alan Moore or Neil Gamain penned graphic novel.
In all seriousness, this is as whacky as mainstream Islamonazism.
