Nominate a heroic kike

The Charles Bronfman Prize celebrates the vision and endeavor of an individual or team under 50 years of age whose humanitarian work has contributed significantly to the betterment of the world. Its goal is to bring public recognition to dynamic young innovators whose Jewish values infuse their humanitarian accomplishments, providing inspiration for generations to come.

Charles Bronfman has spent a lifetime developing, implementing and supporting initiatives that help to strengthen the unity of the Jewish people; investing in next generations to expand their knowledge and appreciation of their history, heritage and cultural identity; and impacting on the direction of Jewish life and community.

    Why aren’t women funny?

    “There are some absolutely hilarious (white, female, straight) Christian comedians, but I think they would also qualify as “outsiders” in today’s society. My sense of irony has developed from being “an outsider”

    [She quotes:] “In the same way that Jerry Seinfeld, Milton Berle, and the Marx Brothers inherited a legacy of humor from their Jewish ancestors, lesbians, fat broads, and ethnic women have used the same tool: humor.”

    As for my characteristic snark (which I’ve been trying to tone down lately, as it often sinks into pure meanness), I myself wrote the following at In Mala Fide:

    “People like ceremonial rhetoric because it strengthens group cohesion, and reassures them that what they are and are doing is okay. That’s why sarcasm and snark are such nerdy traits; people who get picked on a lot tend to adopt them (yes, I know I’m very sarcastic myself).
    Irony is born of observation, and only an outsider can observe. Sarcasm is a defensive trait born out of persecution, and is a form of passive-aggression.”

    I’m humble and funny, and really brilliant too.

    But that doesn’t really completely address the topic. There are plenty of persecuted and isolated white, straight, women out there. So why aren’t more of them funny? The answer is very simple: women aren’t often funny for the same reason that they don’t often study physics or compose symphonies. Humor requires pattern-recognition and ingenuity, which are talents men tend to have more of than women.

    Furthermore, advanced humor is a gratuitous display of advanced intelligence, and most super-intelligent people are men. Women are often simply too dumb to think of a good joke. The same applies to the overwhelming majority of men, of course. Most men aren’t very funny, although they like to think they are. I am simply stating that — of those who are funny — the majority are men, for the reasons listed above.

    alcestiseshtemoa: “Alte who’s that on the picture at the top of the post? Curious.”

    alcestiseshtemoa: “That girl is so pretty.”

    Alte: “A female comedian. I think it might be Sarah Silverman, but I’m not sure any longer because this post was done last year.”

    tryingtobeagoodman: “There is something very unnatural and off-putting about a woman who tries to get big laughs. I assume their upbringing was lacking or something like that. And it’s sort of tasteless for the author of this article to refer to her “tits” or her horniness. Why is she writing on what is supposed to be a “traditional” Christian website? I’m not trying to be mean, but this post was disgusting. Seriously. Not funny.”

    Alte: “This post wasn’t actually meant to be funny. You might have missed that. You seem to have misplaced yourself altogether. I’m not trying to be mean, but your pompous piety is disgusting. Seriously. Not joking.”

    Alte: “Actually, I will admit that I was trying to be mean. Because I’m not a liar. In addition to not being an ass. You might want to try that sometime, for a change. And try to hide the fact that you were raised in a barn.”

    Alte: “I guess I could have just referenced my comment above ‘It’s a shit test (status competition). If you stop laughing then they own you, and if they do it regularly then you should avoid them because they’re jerks. Mock them for their ill humor and suffocating pomposity. Don’t you just love when you’re discussing a meme, and then someone offers you a gratuitous example?'”

    卍巴: [My comment was deleted. It was “‘Humor’ is defined in your culture by Kikes.” — This was posted in place of my comment:] “ed: shut up

    卍巴: [My comment was deleted. It was “The Anti-Christ Kikess Silverman said she would kill Christ ‘again’, and she played God (or ‘G-d’) in her Talmud-Vision show and her ‘G-d’ role was a whore with a Negro, etc.” — This was posted in place of my comment:] “ed: double shut up

    卍巴: [Expect this to be deleted too:]

    卍巴: [Expect this to be deleted too:] “Re ‘Shut Up’: Pathetic. You admire this Christ-Killing Kike whore, and censor Christians?”

    I nominate this Alte cow as a “Heroic Kike”.
