Family Guy’s “I need a Jew” song: Anti-Semitic?

Mainstreaming anti semitism in America:

Offensive at all?

Nah.
Not to Americans apparently.

So what if Peter decides that he needs a Jew to handle his money………….it’s all in good fun…right?

Creators of the U.S. television show “Family Guy” did not infringe copyright when they transformed the song “When You Wish Upon a Star” for comical use in an episode, a U.S. judge ruled on Monday.

“Family Guy” wins court battle over song

Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

So as long as they didn’t infringe on copyright laws…all is well in River City.
Got it.

Twisted double standard anyone?

Kinda like those Muuuuuuuuuuuuhamad cartoons.


Oh wait. Those weren’t too funny..or too well received eh?..Or published by any newspapers in the U.S.

Embassy bombings, vicious murders, death threats anyone?

So………..We can laugh at Joooooooooooos, Christians, Hindus, Irish, Polish and Italian folk………..wait..I seem to be missin one group of people……..
Can anyone refresh my memory on this?

Oh right…………we can’t “offend” the non-existent sensibilities of :
The “RELIGION OF PERPETUAL OUTRAGE.”

I have an idea:

CHANGE THE THEME TO I NEED A MUSLIM..THEN SEE just whom WOULD FIND IT..UM…OFFENSIVE.

And while Jews have historically had a great sense of humor (count how many Jewish comedians you know)… and though they don`t mind jokes about themselves, the rest of the world aint laughin with them dudes.

Many are not only laughing AT them, but planning their demise.

Who’s laughin now?

    That song is the most sickening song I have ever heard. I am beyond words with shock. I am finding harder as each day passes to pray for the enemy and people that hate. God forgive me. It is hard to pray for those that hate us.

    Ugh.

    As a Jew I didn’t find the Family Guy episode offensive (who would have thought that Optimus Prime was Jewish), but there are those idiot moonbats that thinks everything is offensive.

    Too bad. Obama is a shvartser, no matter how you slice it.
    A Muslim is a pedophile follower of the Great Pedophile (towel head is also acceptable).
    And a Mexican is still an illegal.

    NO POLITICAL CORRECTNESS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh Katie, be careful now, among my best friends, 2 are Méxicans, they have a great life and an awesome family….oh, and the Mrs……she’s a Méxican……all legal.

    Great post as always Angel.

  5. Seane-Anna says:

    Hmmmm. Since Family Guy has decided to jump into the swamp of ethnic “humor” here’s a suggestion for a new song: “I Need A Negro”. You can come up with all kinds of scenarios for that one! How about it, FG?

    The last one says it all, when was the last time Christians and Jews murdered those who converted to a different religion. When was the last time Christians slit the throats of anyone in a grainy video chanting, Jesus is great.

    But apparently that’s all too much for the western world to contemplate.

  7. Gayle says:

    Correction, Katie. Not all Mexicans are illegals!

    Angel, that video was so sickening I couldn’t even listen to the entire thing. The first two verses were enough to make me sick to my stomach! Good grief! I’m offended and I’m not even Jewish! We really do have some horrendous people in this country.

    JEALOUSY disguised as parody!!!!
    How transparent….
    The functional, intact Jewish family promotes success in the economical and intellectual world,via education, to become a Doctor, Lawyer,Teacher ,Accountant (def.MONEY MANAGER) etc. So when the Jew reaches that level of prominence that they strive for, they become hated because of it!!! .( never could stand Albert Einstein, because of the hairdo..hahahahaha)..
    Sorry , but that anti-semitism rhetoric is a bit to obvious to a Thinking human being…”Look at the Hebrews, they own Hollywood, they run the banking system,they occupy all the top level medical positions etc…
    Guess what…. the Jew decided that rather than prefect their “skills” in other fields (which i will not mention, less i be labeled a racist,which BTW, i could not care less about)..and now their success has troubled some of those left behind…well….as they say in Brooklyn…..@#$%^&*()

    Its about shock and awe. That is what Seth Mcfarlane and those guys who do South Park are all about. Your outrage is what gets them off.

    I will admit I am not PC by any stretch of its definition. I am, however, respectful of all cultures, religions, and races. But PC has gone too far and often the point of the humor is missed. This is certainly not an attack on Judaism or the people who partice it. The video pokes fun at the narrow minded that subscribe to it all of the sterotypes. Keep in mind that the character of Peter has been established as essentially mildly retarded (sorry for the R word, but I’m not PC). Therefore, he is a foil that represents everyone that maintains narrow minded and hateful points of view.
    Are there offensive things on the show…yes. Are they funny…yes. Have we all become so sensitive that we can’t recognize humor for the sake of humor…yes.

  11. dapoppins says:

    there is nothing funny about that show family guy…all those “adult” cartoons are for people who think shocking, insane, behavior to be funny. Yes, it was offensive. But somehow its “alright” when its funny.

    But it’s not. And I don’t find it the least bit funny either.

  12. Stanford Matthews says:

    King of the Hill, Family Guy, The Simpsons, American Dad, etc., etc., are examples of programming content I ignore. Didn’t see or hear the focus of this post. I avoid such things as I have no interest in supporting or otherwise participating in mindless couch potato offerings which appear on the broadcast market from time to time. It is no surprise to me that what is described here occurs within this programming. It is also no surprise that this programming content appeals to a certain demographic that television execs find profitable. I am proud not to be part of that demographic.

    I love that sign about strapping bombs!

  14. Maggie Thornton says:

    What shocked me, if I got it right, is he can’t slap Lois around, so he needs a Jew. I think this is offensive. I see a lot of things as offensive today. My list grows, and it’s because it is so one-sided. We “normal” people can’t say anything, but everyone else can say whatever they want.

  15. emmy says:

    seriously?

    how about this: dont listen to the song

    it is afterall, just a song.

  16. Malcom says:

    That has to be one of the best songs I’ve ever heard!
    The show Family Guy does not discriminate.They make fun of every race,religion,and culture.It shows the good and bad of society in ingenious parody….
    Well Done!

  17. dan says:

    I’ve got to agree with Malcom and emmy. If it is offensive just turn it off. It is a TV show. You think Family Guy only has it in for the Jews? Good grief! The Pope has gotten it much worse than Jews on this show.

    And they do not make this to get themselves off on your outrage as Tim says. They do this to make money. Pretty simple people.

    @Seane-Anna: Negro does not pertain to one’s religion/faith and is a racial slur.

  18. Bree says:

    Hey, i’m pointing out that I wouldn’t be offended in the least if someone made fun of my religion or ethnicity on TV… it’s funny bc we can’t all be stuck up about ourselves. We are all same :-) And if we can make fun of each other and Joke around about things that are ( obviously not meant to be serious lol ) we will probably all be happier and live life a little peacefully with each other lol ….Plus…life’s just too short to worry about that crap, just move on with it and not watch it if you don’t want to :-) Moreover, family guy doesn’t make fun of JUST Jewish folk, they have HARSHLY stereotyped Irish folk as well lol And so many other ethnicities and religions lol …

    Now, i would agree with most of you if FG pin-pointed one specific religion or race, but since it doesn’t , this is all a little silly :-p

    Lighten up. I’m a Jewish girl. So they say we’re smart. So what? I remember once when I was at university. My black best friend got a 3.55 gpa. I has a 3.99 and a new baby…. No one said a freaking word to me….she was hailed as oh so amazing when I mentioned this to a professor they said it was expected of me….
