Hey everybody! I know times are tough right now and people are scratching for money. So I thought it would be good to spread around word of this opportunity I spotted in today’s New York Times:
Iran’s vice president delivered a baldly anti-Semitic speech on Tuesday at an international antidrug conference here, saying that the Talmud, a central text of Judaism, was responsible for the spread of illegal drugs around the world.
Mr. Rahimi, second in line to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said the Talmud teaches to “destroy everyone who opposes the Jews.”…..The “Zionists” are in firm control of the illegal drug trade, Mr. Rahimi said, asking foreign dignitaries to research his claims. “Zionists” is Iran’s ideological term for Jews who support the state of Israel.
Pretty standard shitheadery, right? In America, you can find this same sentiment everywhere from redneck bars to chambers of commerce, wherever social conservatives of a certain stripe and kidney have sway. But then he makes his pitch:
“The Islamic Republic of Iran will pay for anybody who can research and find one single Zionist who is an addict,” Mr. Rahmini said. “They do not exist. This is the proof of their involvement in drugs trade.”
Wave your matzo if you don’t know any Jewish junkies. Personally, I know dozens — some of whom I guess are still technically alive — and I figure anybody who’s actively involved in a Jewish community and/or the rehab biz knows a helluva lot more. This is GOLD, my friends! If not shekels.
I guess this twatwaffle never heard of Amy Winehouse.
While you’re making your phone calls and lining up your sales inventory, take a gander at this Rahimi clown’s other claims, and ask yourself: Why isn’t he running a fundamentalist church in Arkansas?
Mr. Rahimi …told stories of gynecologists’ killing black babies on the orders of the Zionists and claimed that the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 was started by Jews, adding that mysteriously, no Jews died in that uprising…..He also said the Talmud teaches Jews to think that they are a superior race. “They think God has created the world so that all other nations can serve them,” he said.
I figure the Iranians afford their vice president about as much respect and credibility as we Americans afford ours, and for the same basic reason: these babbling clods are likely to say anything at any time, and nobody listens. It has no impact on policy, and serious people dismiss their vapid pronouncements as background noise, one step below Muzak.
On the positive side, it might be an opportunity for Newt Gingrich. He’d fit in perfectly. And we know for the right money he’d be gone before sundown.
Keep your eye on this part of the world. But first, make your sale. Hell — they’re only junkies, right? And Jews! That’s two strikes right there. Nobody cares! Cash in.
