Pajama Boy Jewish According to... Marx?


Jay Michaelson's whining critique of the conservative slam of Pajama Boy is all at once nerdy, narcissistic, and self-defeating, illustrating the dark void that is the nomenklatura Manhattanite liberal Jewish American psyche. (Go on, say it three times fast.) It leads me to ask: Is there anything liberals won't do to emasculate themselves in deference to Big Government?

Uh-oh, I said "emasculate." I must be "unconsciously" sexist now.

In defense of his thesis that conservatives are latent antisemites because Pajama Boy looks Jewish (try to choke down your offense at that one), Michaelson cites research done by Daniel Boyarin (an academic who has no qualm comparing the Israeli government to Nazis) and Sander Gilman. Gilman, who has contributed to the catalog of study regarding Jews and race, has also written on Karl Marx's own antisemitism. And here's where a 5 minute Google search becomes vastly entertaining: It would appear that Michaelson falls into the very pit of Marxian, Jewish self-hatred about which Gilman has written. In fact, Marx's obsession with Jewish physiognomy is the same as Michaelson's fixation with Pajama Boy's physical appearance, sexuality, and mode of dress down to eye wear, all of which he cites as evidence of "Pajama Boy’s obvious Jewishness".

As for all of you straight-haired, unquestionably sexual, well-dressed Jewish men with no glasses, you stand as much of a chance at pulling off your Jewishness as Miley does twerking her way into the soul train.
