Do check out this response from the conservative “Culture & Media Institute” so upset with the Washington Post for their review of the Jewish Community hosted, Gay and Lesbian sponsored, Government Funded Presentation of “Profane” Sandra Bernhard.

And now what we’ve all been waiting and bracing for – feedback from the aggrieved, the offended, the upset – and so far there are three – and i suspect these speak for more.  Sandra can offend – I guess that’s not a news flash.  Here’s a back and forth with the blogster AthurThinks, whom we know in real life as well as a friend, a regular, and a good member of the community with lots of experience watching theater.  Guess what?  He hated the show.  I take him to task. Here’s our dialogue.

Sandra Bernhard at Theater J (8 cents)

Filed under:  thinkingarthur @ 1:27 pm

Sandra Bernhard is performing at Theater J for three weeks.  The show opened Tuesday.  We went to see her last night.  She was reviewed in the Post by Peter Marks this morning.The theater was pretty full.  For a Thursday night, this portends strong financial results for the theater.

The audience was mixed.  Regular Theater J theater-goers, and visible members of the city’s most visible gay community.  The audience was almost all white (of the 200+ in the audience, I would be surprised if there were ten African Americans).  As to religious affiliation, I of course cannot tell, but I would assume that the vast majorities of the Jews and the Christians in the audience were not religious in any normal sense.  That is just an assumption.

There are some things about Bernhard that you have to admire.  She has indefatigable amounts of energy (her only shared trait with Sarah Palin, perhaps), she has a powerful and not unpleasant singing voice, and she certainly knows how to work an audience.

Her faults vastly outnumber her assets.  In terms of insulting others, she makes Don Rickles seem absolutely tame.  She turns her most venomous venom on Sarah Palin and therefore on all Republicans, but she also rants about Jews, Christians, African Americans, and everyone else.

Now, I am not a fan of bad language.  I just don’t think it is necessary.  I certainly can express my feelings without reverting to language that will make some people cringe.  But bad language in talking about Sarah Palin, Orthodox Jews, right wing Christians is Sandra Bernhard’s m.o., and audiences love it.  Yet bad language is not enough for Bernhard (a lot of comedians use bad language); she needs to have routines that themselves shock by virtue of content, more than they shock by language.  The language becomes only one ingredient in this awful mix.  Talking about what she would do to Palin if she had a chance would (in most countries) have her jailed or stoned, but here, audiences love it.

So, I can’t fully blame Bernhard although she has been taking advantage of it for decades.  I have to blame most of all the audiences for permitting this sort of disgusting dialogue to be repeated again and again and again.

Is Bernhard funny?  Sometimes, yes, she is, and sometimes she is funniest when she is being the nastiest.  But what trumps what?  Do you avoid the humor so as not to encourage hate, or do you ignore the hate because funny is all important.  There is no question as to how I would like to see this resolved.

And I should make it clear that, with regard to her opinions in the most general aspects, I agree with her.  I don’t like the position of the Republicans, I don’t like bad actors hiding under the guise of religious orders.  If I were a Republican, or if I were of a mind to think that you can’t make fun of religion, I would be apoplectic now, I believe.

And if Bernhard weren’t Jewish, and was a Christian or a Moslem who made fun of Democrats and Jews, I (along with all those laughers in the audience) would be up in arms.

I mentioned the very few African Americans.  How did they take the show?  Bernhard sings in “blackvoice” (my phrase).  She makes fun of black divas.  (Yes, she idolizes Nina Simone and some others, but even there it is with a tinge of mocking.)  So, I conclude that the show is not only politically incorrect, it is also racist.  And it is very anti-religious (although Bernhard apparently hob nobs with Chabad and keeps a kosher home).

By any objective the show is disgusting.  Which leads me to the next question.  Why does Theater J allow this type of show on its stage?  I know, the standard answer is because it wants to be on the edge, wants to provoke.  But this show is not an edgy show.  An edge is just that, an edge, on the cusp, a little over the top.  That is not Sandra Bernhard.

So, where is the Theater J staff and council?  Where is the DCJCC administration?  Isn’t it clear that, as a Jewish insitution, which this theater purports to be, it must maintain some standards?  And doesn’t the JCC itself have to have some limits to the tripe it allows on its stage?

Art,

  • Your write-up is, for the most part and certainly at the outset, rather fair and well-reported and careful to present itself as a rational parsing of Sandra Bernhard’s performance and its reception at Theater J. But your last three paragraphs don’t make sense, as a piece of writing. In impersonating two different female black singers at different points during the show, Sandra deploys dialect in the service of sympathetic portraits of talented, exhausted, heart-broken black women. Your conclusion that the “show is not only politically correct, it is also racist” because Sandra sings of the plight of forgotten African-American cities (”Baltimore”) and exploited African-American ex-patriot performers (Nina Simone crying “I want my Porgy [and Bess] money!”) does not follow. In fact, the play wears its politically VERY correct heart on its sleeve with its indictment of America as “A Man’s World, It’s a White Man’s World, It’s a Fucked Up White Man’s Racist World” and can only be suggested to be racist in its content if one is hell-bent on protecting White Folk for Sandra’s blistering indictment.  The fact that the show has a few riffs like this does not — to my mind — make it a “disgusting show.” there’s too much beauty, variety, vitality, and intelligence to label the entire show as “disgusting.” I’ll agree with you that we produced this show because we did find it to be edgy — because we wanted to give right wing conservative Jews a good run for their money by being on the receiving end of some blistering indictments from Sandra. Does it go over the edge sometimes?  Sure.  It goes over the edge and then comes right back to the cutting edge.  Finally you ask, “where is the Theater J staff and council? Where is the DCJCC administration?” They were all there on opening night, one night before you came. We partied together after. There were three members of Theater J staff at the show last night, and there’ll be more of us this weekend when we present three shows — soon to be all sold out. I was teaching a political theater class last night, but I’ll be back for everything this weekend.We’re proud of our producing – proud of Sandra’s sense of timing – taking the fight out to the house and to the street beyond, channeling so much of our rage and frustration at the bizarre recent twists of fortune since Karl Rove trotted out Sarah Palin for John McCain to briefly meet and then get in bed with.Sandra’s face is hanging 10 feet tall in a banner over the DCJCC steps and we’re proud that she’s a new emblem and ambassador for our theater and our center. She’s not the only one who represents us. But her large heart, her generous talent, and her big mouth are all a big part of who we are.

  • Ari:  I appreciate everything you said, but stand by what I posted (except for your comments on my writing structure; my blog is a one-draft horse).  My questions on the Council et al were rhetorical, of course.  I wasn’t suggesting that this was a stealth production.  But I think that, to paraphrase Sandra B’s comments about money blindness, I think there is such a thing as adulation-blindness, and even though a show might become very popular and theatrically edgy (or uber-edgy), there are matters of taste and propriety that override it.

    Edie is probably closer to you in her feelings (but that’s mainly because she is such a knee-jerk liberal), but I just think that a JCC is the wrong place for this kind of show.

    As to the racism question (where Edie really disagrees with me), I thought that the character in the opening sketch was particularly racist.  I am not sure what the blacks in the audience thought, or what a broader group of blacks would think.  And as to Nina Simone, who became very bitter and anti-white during her French years, I am sure that she would not want to be portrayed by Sarah Bernhard.

    You may recall that Al Jolson was my father’s first cousin, so I have been interested in the ambiguity of blackface my entire conscious life.  Blackface in the Jolson sense never seemed bad to me…..but try to tell that to an African American.

    I wish Theater J and you only the best, and have great apprecation for your successes, as you must know.  I just think this one is so far over the top, that it hits the bottom.

    1. Sandra is mad as hell, and so am I and many others. She has the balls to say what is on a lot of peoples minds. The left is raging but too polite to say much of what needs to be said (Barack Obama is a fine example). Sandra isn’t and for this I love her! She is a voice in the wilderness. It is too bad you don’t understand her equating the powerlessness and struggle we all feel these days about the dumbing down of America, and the selling out of our democracy to Corporations. I am not to making light of a black woman’s struggle, they have had it much harder than me or Sandra, but after these 8 years of this, we all “get it” a little more, don’t we?

    2. Pingback: Finally, a comment on the blog - Read and respond! « The Theater J Blog

    3. what an idiot. she has a bad case of white guilt syndrome. feminist are being exposed for the hypocrits they are. its not the womyn they want its the leftist. well vote nobama and you will get both. idiots

    4. It’s a free country so Sandra Bernhard can obviously say what she wants, where she wants and people can decide whether or not they want to pay to hear it. But WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. Judging from all the hype and comments on this website like “bracing for – feedback” and “check out this outrageous response” I would have thought this was a FIRESTORM of raging controversy. I browsed some of the related articles and blogs and notice even after a couple of days they have not generated many responses even with entry on each one from Theater J urging more comments!. I also watched the clip of Sandra Bernhard and she sounded not so cutting edge humorous but more like an angry, foul mouthed spoiled rich girl I knew in high school. I feel much better about the presidential election now though because if this is what passes for biting, intellectual political satire to the uber left then McCain/Palin will (to quote Bill Clinton) “win handily”. Thanks Sandra and keep up the good work!

    5. Sandra Bernhard is walking proof that beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes straight through to the bone.

    6. The Left proves again and again that it requires its own to resort to obscene urban thuggery to promote its political agenda. Witness the violence and arrests outside the GOP convention in Minneapolis (did the same thing happen in Denver?)

      Let’s be honest, if a conservative had suggested that Michelle Obama would be likely sexually assaulted if she walked through in a small town in Georgia, it would be a national cause celebre.

      This is also proof that a double standard exists for those on the Left as far as what they can say in public.

      Sandra Bernhard is essentially “dropping her pants” to bring attention to a production that would otherwise be ignored.

    7. Wow, a washed up, drunk, nasty looking,Amy Winhouse looking, crack whore, has been, comedian puts down a hot, intelligent, Governor. How original. This makes people RUN away from the liberal left! Keep talking all you nasty Libs…..keep talking.

    8. What vile and angry creature.

    9. Who cares what this lezbo cunt says or thinks. Wait, she can’t think, she’s just an evolved sexual being acting solely on impulse and instinct.

    10. I hope she chokes on her anger.

    11. >> Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers.<<

      Actually, her comment is not a condemnation of Sarah Palin but of black men. Ms. Bernhard has accidentally let slip her real view of them: that they are nothing more than sex-crazed animals who are incapable of controlling their urge to commit horrible acts of rape and violence. It’s rare nowadays to see racism exhibited so openly and with such self-righteousness.

    12. I have always been pro Israel in world affairs, but, now, I have to say that I am 100% for the Palestinians and to kick all Jews out of Israel and set up a Palestinian state. Don’t care how, just want it done, NOW…

      Steve

    13. You are an ass for deleting my comment. So much for the “liberal” idea of opposing views and “enlightenment”. You show your true colors as a hypocritical, biggot. What are you afraid of? That someone might actually want to think for themselves? What a hack.

    14. Love it!

    15. Mike Jefferson

      What is it with you lefties? You hide behind the 1st Amendment and spew pornographic invective while making fun of everyone else. Although you proclaim the need for “tolerance”, you are in fact some of the most intolerant and insincere people that one would ever encounter. What a bunch of hypocrites.

      Do you sycophants feel proud when you are poking your finger at the “man” while you are acting out your perverse and pathetic lives? In many ways, I feel great sorrow for your anguish and bewilderment. To be so angry and unhappy has to be a horrific curse.

      I doubt you will have the courage to print this comment, but suffice it to say that we’ll be praying for you this shabbos and during the high holidays.

    16. I find this disturbing and sad at the same time and on a lot of levels. Where to begin!?

      I am by no means a right winger and consider myself a centrist but let’s be honest, if ANYONE said comparable things about liberal politicians, they would be all over the news and their careers would be over. Rightfully so I might add. Can you imagine someone suggesting Barack Obama shouldn’t go to the South or else the KKK would lynch him? How dare she say something so vile about Sarah Palin! And there are people on this site saying she is saying what others are thinking? Dear God I hope not!

      And to say she is a turncoat?! What does that mean? She is a traitor because she is a conservative woman? Sarah Palin is a LOT more conservative than me but where is it written women must be liberal? Why is it such a shock to people to find that women are just like men. They come from all kinds of backgrounds and have very broad range of ideas (GASP!!) just like men. What kind of an idiot would suggest white men who are liberal are “turn coats”?

      The very people who claim to be for diversity and equality are the biggest bigots on the planet it turns out. All women must be liberals and pro abortion? Says who? If you are a woman apparently you lose your right to bare arms? Why? It’s just like the character assassination the left pulled on Clarence Thomas. Say you are for minorities and women unless one of them is a conservative and then you try to drag them down and call them nasty names because apparently they don’t realize their place. Disgusting.

      And what is she saying about her “bros” in New York? What kind of negative stereotype is she pushing about black people? Apparently in her world black men all want to rape white women and would gladly act as pawns in her political game? What decade is she living in? She is really off the reservation!

      And what is this crap about the Bible? Suddenly Sandra can tell Christians what they are and aren’t allowed to be believe? She has suddenly decided that everyone must view the Old Testament as “open to interpretation” (doubtlessly meaning her interpretation). Pardon me Sandra if as a Christian I tell you to blow it out your ear. I do not require your permission to read MY Bible the way I see fit. That is really up to everyone to interpret their own way. And as for your bigoted comments about the New Testament, well let’s just say I am proud to say most Christians have advanced past this kind of hate speech towards Jews.

      I for one will see to it that Sandra never gets another nickel of my money (not that I was likely to see her anyway the no talent never was that she is). I think any theater in America should refuse to book her lest they appear to back this kind of hate speech.

    17. I read all the silliness above and realize that you are bunch of pompous fools I would have said asses but I am trying to be nice. Sandra Bernhard has never been funny and I am still wondering why anybody in their right mind finds her funny. Listening to her I can see why people dislike Jewish people. She is a prime example of why foolish people hate the Jews. She is a truly nasty and hateful person and gives rise why Anti-Semitic attitudes are on the rise. I can not understand why your theater give her a voice.

    18. Dear sports, at last the Left Liberal satge world shows some of the fresh and inspiring ideas of its positive genius, and with such a light touch! So blacks are potential criminal gang rapists of vice Presidential candidates? Nuance. Check.

      How er, “progressive”. White people as a group too, are garbage, I guess that includes 7 year olds & blind people or the disabled & gee, even a white surgeon or shoe repairer say? Inclusive. Check.

      I can’t wait for your “courageous” take on Asians as drug dealing laundry mathematicians. My wife is Japanese. She really needs to be subjected to your “anger”. Well, you are superior to us mere mortals, eh?

      One thing, how come Sarah Burntheart has had so much opportunity to make money, but is still so ugly outside as well as in? I’m puzzled. Hey, the limits of plastic surgery, eh?

      Good luck with such amazing talent. Er, no. You’re totally boring laughable neurotic hateful mediocre phony’s, ain’t cha? Still, the faux must go on.

      Colonel Neville.

    19. Dear sports, hey maybe I did mean “satge world”. It can’t actually be a show…on a real stage? Get out of here!

      It’s like that scene from Seinfeld where Jerry goes and sees some hideous, embarrassing alternative theatre tedium, all minus any “passe” ideas of entertainment and comfortable seating.

      Because you’re so cutting edge and courageous, right? Give me a break, faux poser rebels. Check. How?

      I know, Dick Cheney is going to arrest you and throw you in the secret gulag with Mick Jagger, Mike Moore & other Solzhenitsyn like celebrity dissidents? No ya great really. You said so.

      YOU are the actual play within a play so to speak. A dark tragedy of absurd sub racist, bigotted poison and hate with an element of high borderline criminal farce. I salute you, Leftard boobs. You are excellent comrades. Get help at Dr Sanity blogspot com the peoples cube com & dissectleft blogspot com.

      All the best and remember, you’re not a fraud if everyone you know is a fake too. No, you really are funny but not as a comedian. Colonel Neville.

    20. One does end up wondering exactly who it was Ms.Bernhard was insulting when she said that Sarah Palin would be gang-raped by black men in Manhattan. Is it her opinion that black men are violent rapists? Perhaps only if they did not attend an Ivy League university. Or only if they live in Manhattan? Or is Ms. Bernhard of the opinion that rape is just the logical response any black man would have toward a white woman? Or were we not supposed to attempt any deconstruction of this theatrical performance?

    21. I am disappointed that a Jewish theater would sponsor and even celebrate such a vulgar presentation. Sandra Bernhard’s demeanor certainly is not one befitting a Proverb’s 31 woman. She also references not taking the Old Testament literally. Just what does she mean by that? Are God’s commandents outdated? NO!Shame on Theater J and the DCJCC administration. Why would Sara Palin be so hated by some in the Jewish faith? She lives a life that follows the 10 commandments! Sarah Palin did not have her unborn down syndrome baby aborted (murdered)! Gov. Palin is a fine Christian woman, not perfect for sure, but then we have all sinned. Healthy debate of issues is good, however, personal vulgar attacks are not (even in the guise of humor)!
      As a Christian, I DO NOT hate Jews, they are my brothers and sisters in God’s family. I do acknowledge their need to accept Jesus as their Messiah and pray that they do.

    22. See, listening to this woman, I almost thought she was a Republican… Hey, aren’t the Republicans the ones who use “hate speech”? Aren’t the Republicans narrowminded imbecils, religious bigots, sexists, ugly (gosh, is she ugly!), etc, etc etc? Wow, you Libs are loosing it, and it’s sooooo funny to watch. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! ROFLMAO!!!!! Now (no pun intended, by the way!), It’d be great if at least one of you hate-mongers could stop drewiling and spiting hate and explain what exactly you have against a WOMAN running for Vice-president! Aren’t you the ones who want to “advance” women in this country?! What up, kids? (ROFLMAO!)

    23. Oops! Mispelled “drooling,” “narrow-minded” and “imbeciles”! Now the hate-mongers are goint to attack lil’ me… Ah, bon, c’est la vie!

    24. Apparently, American Evangelical Christians must support Bi-Sexual, Goy Hating, Jewesses or they will burn in the fiery pits of hell.

      Sandra Bernhard is a proud and courageous Jewess who unapologetically bashes the culture of American Evangelical Christians and their head Shiksa Sara Palin (isn’t Sara a Hebrew name?) .

      John Hagee, Dr. Dobson, and a whole host of Evangelical leaders continue to teach those evil Evangelical Christians to apologize for any and all bad Jewish behavior so I don’t expect much to come from this little tirade, beyond some well needed publicity for Sandra.

      Since these are not the droids you’re looking for let’s just forget about this little incident, chalk it all up to Chutzpah and acknowledge that Sandra Bernhard is a little Jewess hottie that loves to do the naughty!

    25. What if she attacked the Jews and called them names, then it would not be funny, then it would be a “hate-crime”…
      America a country that is run by Jews and destroyed by Jews.

    26. Wow!!! What a prejudice evil miserable psycho!!! If anyone ever had any doubts about anti-gentile Jewish supremacism, here it is: “In your face” Liberalism = hatred of anything worth believing in. Let the bloody war begin!!! I am willing to fight!!
      She is horribly ugly too!!!

    27. What a disgraceful person this woman is. How cowardly to hide behind standard phrases like “provocative” and “freedom of speech” in order to throw sh_t all around. She’s just vulgar and unpleasant. Just another indicator of our decline as a culture. Sad. Very sad.

    28. How can anyone watch this and find any sort of comedic value. This is terribly disgusting and racist. If a non-Jew were to say the same kind of things about Jews…oh man, there would be hell to pay. Sandra Bernhard is a sick degenerate thing. A bunch of Jew columnists even defend her and give her positive reviews. It makes me literally sick to my stomach. And by the way this has nothing to do with having the “balls” to speak out against things or anything like that. It is one thing to INTELLIGENTLY express your views, sometimes maybe in a forceful manner. But this, this is just completely disgusting.

    29. Sandra Bernhard Reveals Anti-Gentilism!

      By David Duke

      The exceedingly and stereotypically Jewish comedienne, Sandra Bernhard recently performed at the leading Jewish theater in Washington, D.C. There she viciously attacked Sarah Palin as a “Goy whore,” and threatened the mother of five with gang rape by Black males.

      Goy, as you should be aware by now is an unflattering word Jews use for Gentiles, in other words, we non-Jews. Bernhard also warned Palin not to reference the Old Testament and condemned the New Testament as crappy bullsh-t. Here is a direct quote:

      Click on This Link for the Video of Sandra Bernhard —-WARNING! Extremely Offensive!

      Turncoat b—h! Don’t you f–kin’ reference the Old Testament, bitch! You stay with your New Goyish, crappy, shiksa, funky bulls–t! Don’t you touch my Old Testament, you b—h!

      I will discuss Bernhard more in a minute. First I want to get an issue out of the way.

      I don’t know how many times I have been described by the media as “anti-Semitic.” I am not an anti-Semite. And the record is clear that I have never said anything as remotely hateful as Sandra Bernhard. But, I can tell you frankly, I am anti anyone who tries to hurt the well-being of my family, my community, my country, and my people. Since Jews divide up humanity into simply two groups, Jews and Gentiles, and since I am conscious of my own, non-Jewish, European heritage, I am definitely “anti” those who are anti-Gentile.

      I don’t want my family, my people or myself to endure anti-Gentilism. Perhaps I could more tolerate anti-Gentilism knowing that it flourishes far away in Tel Aviv, but I have hard time accepting it in my own country. And I have an even harder time accepting it when the biggest media in America promotes it.

      There’s the rub. You see, a Gentile who does not like anti-Gentilism is automatically an anti-Semite in the Jewish-dominated American media.

      Can one be anti-Gentile? Funny, there is no word for being anti-Gentile found in the dictionary as there is for being anti-Semitic. But after a lifetime of reading Jewish literature, I know that anti-Gentiles like Sandra Bernhard exist along with her wildly cheering, Jewish audience in the Jewish Theater where she performed. I also know that they exist in the Jewish pundits that gave her positive reviews in the Jewish-run Washington Post and the Examiner. I know anti-Gentile extremists occupy many of the highest positions of power in America and in many European nations.

      In my books Jewish Supremacism and My Awakening I quote a contemporary article in the mainstream Jewish Chronicle which acknowledges for its Jewish readership that the most commonly used Jewish word for Gentile woman or girl is Shiksa, which literally means: `whore’.

      Here is the direct definition derived from the Jewish Chronicle:

      Shiksa – the Jewish term for a Gentile woman, from the root word Sheigetz meaning “abomination” or “whore.”

      Shikselke – a Gentile little girl meaning “little female abomination.”

      I have quoted from the classic Jewish Encyclopedia article called “Gentiles” in which it says that the Talmud has traditionally held that “Gentiles are not men,” and that “another reason for the discrimination (against Gentiles) was the vile and vicious character of Gentiles…whose flesh is like the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses…” I can quote from Jews who themselves recognize and reject the rampant anti-Gentile hate in the Jewish community. The Israeli website, Daat Emet exposes it as I do. They quote contemporary articles from professors at Jewish universities in Israel that say, “Only Jews are Men.” In other words, only Jews are Human beings.

      I have quoted from the worldwide Jewish extremist organization, Chabad Lubavitch that says there is only one reason for the existence of Goys on the Earth, and that is to “serve Jews.” This organization has teach-ins in the White House.

      More recently I have quoted from Jewish professor Nathan Abrams in an article he wrote for the Jewish Quarterly in which he shows that the leading pornographers of America (overwhelmingly Jewish) – that these Jews see porn as “a way of defiling Christian culture,… as a two finger sot the WASP establishment…the result of an atavistic hatred of Christian authority…they are trying to weaken the dominant culture in America by moral subversion.” Actually, Abrams and the Jewish Quarterly are not critical of this Jewish subversion; the article speaks quite proudly of the dominant Jewish role in porn.

      Ari Roth of the Goldstein, Jewish Theater, shows very clearly the anti-White and at the same time, pro-Jewish nature of the show. Bernhard warns Palin, the Goy, to stay away from her Jewish Old Testament and stick with the crappy, bullsh-t of the New Testament. Roth goes on to discuss the anti-White nature of the show. By the way, Jews never refer to themselves as “White folks.”

      In fact, the play wears its politically VERY correct heart on its sleeve with its indictment of America as “A Man’s World, It’s a White Man’s World, It’s a F-ked Up White Man’s Racist World” and can only be suggested to be racist in its content if one is hell-bent on protecting White Folk from Sandra’s blistering indictment. When Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers, she’s being provocative, combative, humorous, and yes, let’s allow, disgusting.

      The fact that the show has a few riffs like this does not – to my mind – make it a `disgusting show.’ there’s too much beauty, variety, vitality, and intelligence to label the entire show as “disgusting… Does it go over the edge sometimes? On the gang-rape joke, yes. Sure. Not much else. It goes over the edge and then comes right back to the cutting edge. ”

      Bernhard’s vicious and hateful anti-Gentile program is praised by the Theater itself, showing the Jewish community is right in tune with Bernhard’s hate. Sandra Bernhard is not some aberration in the Jewish community, but as the J Theater officially says:

      We’re proud of our producing — proud of Sandra’s sense of timing — taking the fight out to the house and to the street beyond, channeling so much of our rage and frustration at the bizarre recent twists of fortune since Karl Rove trotted out Sarah Palin for John McCain to briefly meet and then get in bed with. Sandra’s face is hanging 10 feet tall in a banner over the DCJCC steps and we’re proud that she’s a new emblem and ambassador for our theater and our center. She’s not the only one who represents us. But her large heart, her generous talent, and her big mouth are all a big part of who we are.

      Indeed, one can watch the video and hear the roaring approval of the Jewish audience. One should also consider the fact that TheWashington Post and The Washington Examiner both praised the show. The Washington Post’s Peter Marks called it “a rotating sprinkler that a spectator washes in most happily,” and the Examiner joined in, with the headline “Comedienne delivers enraged optimism.” Barbara Mackay claimed “in the end, oddly and subtly, Bernhard’s message is positive.”

      Anti-Gentile hate is “positive” and the Jewish audience “washes in it most happily.”

      Hateful Jewish supremacists wouldn’t be such a problem but for the fact that they are not only in the audience in the Jewish Theater in DC, they are also in the editorial rooms of The Washington Post, The NY Times and the rooms adjacent to the Oval Office. They have led us into the catastrophe of the Iraq War and want an even bigger catastrophe in Iran. They have so much power that both John McCain and Barack Obama must prostrate themselves before them in disgusting obsequiousness.

      Anyone who dares to expose Jewish extremists will be called an anti-Semite. Anyone who exposes the powerful elements of Jewish anti-Gentile hatred in our society will be called a hater. Such is the reality of American media.

      I am thankful for the Sandra Bernhard and her cheering Jewish audience, the DC Jewish Theater and The Washington Post for once again exposing to the world the true masters of hate in America.

      I am not one of them. I dare to expose them. To do so comes at no small cost to me personally and politically, but somebody must stand up to ugly, vicious, and hateful psychopaths like Sandra Bernhard and those evil men who promote her and her agenda.

    30. I don’t approve what she says, she sounds like an extremist. She doesn’t inspire me at all.

    31. Thank you Mr.Duke for an honest and informative post.If you are being attacked and harrassed by the marxist press you must be doing something right.How truly evil must a person or persons be to manipulate others through lies and deceit all the while proclaiming themselves to pillars of righteousness only for their own clandestine hateful agendas.Thank you Mr. Duke for your continued courageous fight for exposing the lies and injustices that alot of people are totally unaware of.

    32. BRAVO KEVIN!
      BRAVO MARK!

    33. How many of you putzes have seen Sandra’s show?

      The comments section of this blog is an absolute joke – a circle jerk of sanctimony. It’s as if central casting asked for caricatures of right-wing neanderthals and uptight left-wing PC-drunk scolds.

      Can anyone show me a direct quote of what Sandra said with regard to Bible Spice being gang-raped in NYC? I can’t find one.

      Who “broke” the story? Matt Drudge. Enough said.

    34. My husband tried to view the footage, but youtube had pulled it, cited as obscene material. Did you bother try to find it before you decided to condemn this as a reactionary neanderthal non-story? Have you seen her show? Than you must be a putz too.

      This slutty lesbian is mentally ill. But, the fact that you allow her to speak her hate speak, in public, for money, indicates that you are morally bankrupt.
      Take the word “J” out of your Theater. You are a shame, an abomination and a hater.
      You make Jews look badly.
      As for Sandra? She is not funny, and I am NOT LAUGHING.
      If you think this is appropriate, you deserve to go bankrupt.

    36. I’m voting 3rd party, but this is not neccessary is it. Such hate. Make your point w/o the swearing and someone might listen.

    37. More people are beginning to believe that for one reason or another, all Jews are bad for our country. I still think there are descent Jews, but I did notice that the mainstream media, has been silent on this issue and I have yet to hear a singe Jewish group condemn this thing for her hate-filled remarks. I have no doubt, this is the kind of behavior exhibited by many of your people in Germany prior to the rise of the NAZI party?
