"Three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax..."
"I'm sort of a Jew."
- Amy Schumer
[A blonde-haired, blue-eyed sort of a non-religious Jew]
As Gilad Atzmon would say, "She is politically Jewish".
She is ethnically Teutonic and religiously atheistic.
"I’d like to mention something about language, there are a couple of terms being used a lot these days by Guilty White Liberals.
The first is “Happens to be” : ‘He Happens to be black’
“I have a friend, who happens to be black”,
like it’s a fuckin' accident, ya know?
"Happens To Be Black?"
Yes, he Happens To Be Black.
"He has two black parents?"
Oh yes, yes he did.
"And they fucked?"
Oh indeed they did, yes!
"So where does the surprise part come in?"
I’d think it’d be more unusual if he just Happened To Be Scandinavian.
The other term is openly : “He’s Openly Gay”.
That’s the only minority they use that for.
You know, you wouldn't say someone was "Openly Black."
Well, maybe James Brown.
Or Louis Farrakhan.
Louis Farrakhan is Openly Black.
Colin Powell is NOT Openly Black.
Colin Powell is Openly White - he just Happens to Be Black."
"Schumer's father is Jewish and her mother is from a Protestant background.
Schumer was raised Jewish."
[That's what I just said - she is Politically Jewish.]
[She just happens to be blonde-haired, blue-eyed and not go by the Torah.]
"On July 27, The Hollywood Reporter reported that investigators believed Houser chose to commit his attack in a theater playing Trainwreck due to its feminist themes and characters, as well as its lead actor's Jewish background.
Houser was said to have been a misogynist and praised the actions of Adolf Hitler on online message board."
[ NOTE : So did Bill Hicks - "Hitler had the right idea - he was just an underachiever." ]
Amy Schumer fights for tougher gun laws after ‘Trainwreck’ shooting
Comedian Amy Schumer got teary-eyed Monday as she joined her cousin [SENATOR] Chuck and vowed to fight for tougher gun-control laws following the deadly shootings in a Louisiana movie theater that was playing her movie, “Trainwreck.”
She broke down at a packed press conference in Midtown with the senator, her second cousin once removed, as she described the two young women — 21-year-old Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson, 33 — killed during the movie on July 23.
“I’m not sure why this man chose my movie to end those two beautiful lives and injure nine others, but it was very personal for me,” the actress said, her voice wavering.
“Enough is enough. These shootings have got to stop. I don’t know how else to say it.”
After talking with her cousin, who hasn’t seen the romantic comedy, Amy Schumer turned that anger into action.
The duo announced a three-pronged plan that includes incentives for states to provide more information for the nationwide background check for gun applicants.
The Schumers also called on Congress to fully fund the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, which is facing up to $150 million in federal cuts.
“Unless something is done, and done soon, dangerous people will continue to get their hands on guns,” Amy said.
“No one wants to live in a country where a felon, the mentally ill or other dangerous people can get their hands on guns with relative ease.”
The 59-year-old shooter, John Russell Houser, who had a history of mental illness, was known for his anti-Semitic beliefs and apparently targeted the film for its feminist themes. He killed himself amid his rampage.
Sen. Schumer said his cousin’s star power will get attention for the issue well beyond the political sphere.
“Having people like Amy speaking out reaches people who I could never reach,” he said at the press conference, which was attended by more than two dozen reporters.
"Here's another example of overprotection.
You ever notice on the TV-news every time some guy with an AK47 strolls on to a school yard and kills three or four kids and a couple of teachers, the next day... the next day the school in overrun with counsellors, and psychiatrics, and grief counsellors, and trauma therapists trying to help the child cope.
Shit, when I was in school, someone came to our school and killed three or four of us; we went right on with our arithmetic: "35 classmates minus 4... equals 31."
We were tough."
"They'll take away a gun, but let you keep a knife.
Well, what the fuck is that?
In fact, there is a whole list of lethal objects they will allow you to take on board.
Theoretically, you could take a knife, an ice pick, a hatchet, a straight razor, a pair of scissors, a chainsaw, six knitting needles, and a broken whiskey bottle, and the only thing they're going to say to you is, "That bag has to fit all the way under the seat in front of you."
And if you didn't take a weapon on board, *relax*.
After you've been flying for about an hour, they're going to *bring* you a knife and fork!
They actually *give* you a fucking knife!
It's only a table knife, but you could kill a pilot with a table knife. It might take you a couple minutes, you know, specially if he's hefty, huh?
Yeah, but you can get the job done if you really wanted to kill the prick.
There's a lot of things you use to kill a guy with.
You could probably beat a guy to death with a Sunday New York Times!"
"This is a pretty fancy ... pretty distinguished group," [The President of the United States] said of the invited guests, which included members of the House and Senate, two justices of the Supreme Court, Olympic athletes, entrepreneurs, Rabbinical scholars, "and Sandy Koufax."
The mention of his name brought the biggest cheer at the event.
