Charlie, Say It Ain’t So
(Occidental Observer) -- by Edmund Connelly --
Alas, the news is that fabulously popular actor Charlie Sheen has been canned or at least suspended from his show Two and a Half Men. Though the show has been CBS and Warner Bros. Television’s top-rated sitcom for the season, Charlie crossed the line: He said something construed as anti-Semitic.
It happened in a radio interview with Alex Jones:
In his interview with Jones, Sheen repeatedly evoked violent images and ideas. He also derided [Two and a Half Men producer Chuck] Lorre in an attack that reeked of anti-Semitism.This is a different kettle of fish from comments by Rick Sanchez and Marlon Brando on Jewish predominance in the media. Sheen doesn’t like his producer, and by pointedly calling him by his Jewish name, the implication is that the allegedly evil traits of Chuck Lorre-Chaim Levine stem from his Jewishness. It’s like Mel Gibson’s statement, “Fucking Jews…the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”
“There’s something this side of deplorable that a certain Chaim Levine — yeah, that’s Chuck’s real name — mistook this rock star for his own selfish exit strategy, bro. Check it, Alex: I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his unevolved mind cannot process,” Sheen said.
“Last I checked, Chaim, I spent close to the last decade effortlessly and magically converting your tin cans into pure gold. [In a radio interview Sheen claims that Lorre has pocketed a $500,000,000 from the show.] And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write,” he said. (See here for the story.)
Sheen denies any anti-Semitism: ”So you’re telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez” — Sheen’s birth name — “I can claim they are anti-Latino?” Predictably, the ADL didn’t buy it: ”We don’t know what he really meant by it. But we’re concerned that, in the midst of a negative tirade, he’s making an irrelevant reference to the guy’s Jewishness. If someone was calling [Sheen] a ‘maggot’ and saying his real name was Carlos Estevez, then yes, that would be conceived as anti-Latino. It’s all about the context.”
It’s okay to say Jews are smart. That will get you major media coverage. But implying something negative about Jews in general is definitely going to bring out the heavy artillery at the ADL.
Sheen obviously has problems of his own. Wiki tells us, “Sheen’s personal life has … made headlines numerous times, due to marital problems and his various bouts with drug addiction. His role on Two and a Half Men fit well with this image.”
Indeed, the confluence of Sheen’s private life and his TV persona makes him a very effective contemporary icon for dissolute sexual behavior and lack of interest in family and children by young males—the decades-long Hollywood campaign for cultural dissolution. It’s a good example of the general point that the cultural values of the people who script what actors like Sheen portray are dramatically out of sync with the values of most Americans and even more so with traditional American culture.
“The elite was [since the 1960s] and remains disproportionately anti-Establishment in its social and political views and . . . remains so even as a large segment of the American public continues to be ambivalent, or opposed to the new social paradigms” (Powers et al. 1996, 48). Moreover, the social and political messages emanating from Hollywood have been impervious to election returns, and “if anything, the ascendance of conservative politics in Washington may have accelerated television’s leftward tendencies by alarming and mobilizing the predominantly liberal Hollywood community” (Lichter et al. 1994, 418).Lorre-Levine’s Two and a Half Men certainly fits this pattern...MORE...LINK
The difference between the Hollywood elite and both the traditional elites and the general public is clearest on what Powers et al. term “expressive individualism”—a dimension tapping ideas of sexual liberation (including approval of homosexuality), moral relativism, and a disdain for religious institutions. …
Michael Medved (Is Hollywood too Jewish? Moment 21(4), 1996, 42), who acknowledges that the majority of influential production executives are Jewish, describes the messages emanating from Hollywood as stressing “instant gratification rather than deferred gratification; superficial glamour rather than moral substance; and emotion, instinct, and violence rather than self-discipline and self-control.” He also notes that public opinion polls indicate that “the overwhelming majority of Americans believe that movies and television encourage criminal violence, promiscuous sex, and other forms of destructive behavior.” Medved also expresses his concern that the silence of Jewish self-defense.

Chris Moore comments:
The fact that these dust-ups between the Judaics and well known figures and celebrities are becoming increasingly common is great news for America-firsters. I mean, just in the last few months it’s been Sanchez, Beck, Sheen…even dumbed-down Americans will eventually figure out where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
The fact that the Judaics go apeshit at the drop of a hat now is also great news, because of the “though doth protest too much” phenomenon. But at this point, they have to, because the wheels are starting to come off their rackets, so they’re forced to milk the “anti-Semitism” card to the last of its value.
History tells as that the Judaic rackets have always been discovered and flogged from respectable society in the end, and of course Jewry is aware of that more than anyone.
This era may be the beginning of the end of Judeofascist financial, social, cultural and economic hegemony over America, and consequently much of the world, and thanks to the Internet, they will have a difficult time picking up their rackets elsewhere.
They are clearly increasingly cornered, and desperate. Now would be a good time to invest in futures on one-way tickets to Israel.
As I see it, the Judeofacist’s natural environment truly is in the Middle East. There, they’re dealing with cut-throat Islamic totalitarians who understand and respect cut-throat Judeofascists just enough to tolerate them…barely.
Here, in the morally-refined Christian West, we’ll respectfully and compassionately hold our tempers and tongues until things get so bad that we have to…well, we all know the history of what Western Civilization has been driven to time and again. And it wasn’t pretty, for anyone. But it will continue to be necessary for our own survival.
If Zionist Jewry knows what’s good for it, it will make a separate peace with it’s Semitic, Arab and Islamic cousins, who like the Judeofascists themselves, don’t bother to distinguish between politics and religion.
