WND: Blacks Lazy, Shiftless, ‘Should Be More Like Jews’

It's a shanda, baby!The proper response to the WND story “Blacks Should Be More Like Jews,” by Aliza Davidovit, is “uhhhhh.” It starts with a roll call of successful people of Jewishness, and then explains that they did it by getting up earlier and working harder than everyone else, not by being on food stamps and welfare like some people.

But it’s not just welfare queens and young bucks who have ruined a perfectly good black experience in this country, like we used to have in the 1950s: it’s also teachers unions and Barack Obama, who decimated the black middle class by axing all those government jobs! Oh, Davidovit didn’t note that part? Weird!

But really what drives Davidovit crazy is that 84 percent of African Americans say they’re going to vote for Obama again — and we don’t know about you, but 84 percent strikes us as preposterously low. Like, we would go with the headline that one in seven black people doesn’t plan to vote for Barack Obama, not wailing in despair that black people are racist for voting for the first black president.

The black middle class has been decimated under the economy of his presidency, yet 84 percent of the black community says they will still vote for the president. In my estimation this is a monochromatic view that blinds itself to Obama’s betrayal of his own people. His skipping the NAACP convention further shows he is counting on the black community’s blind and dumb devotion. The community must stop living vicariously; his success is not their success – unless, of course, I missed the news bulletin that he has taken them jet-setting on Air Force One, golfing and on vacation to Martha’s Vineyard. While he is putting the holes, they are living on doles. The historic moment of his presidency has passed. What has he done for you lately?

Aliza Davidovit is just a really good writer, you guys. There is almost some Jesse Jackson-style rhyming call and response! Sing it, sister! Oh, by the way, you know who else is overwhelmingly voting for Barack Obama?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.


  1. One_who_wanders

    You know, I keep thinking that eventually the Right will get so crazy that even they will be ashamed to admit and publish what they are thinking. But they keep proving me wrong.

    1. SoBeach

      It's not that their thinking is getting crazier…they're just not as cautious when it comes to expressing themselves. It has something to do with the 24/7 multimedia propaganda bubble they inhabit. They think everyone thinks like they do, so why mince words?

      1. Generation[redacted]

        I know I've been on the Internet too long when I'm surprised by a correct usage of the words "their" and "they're."

  2. dogscantlookup

    They have taken

    the hearts and minds of our leaders.

    They have blinded us to the truth.

    Our human spirit is corrupted.

    Why do we worship greed?

    Outside the limit of our sight

    they're feeding off us.

    Perched on top of us

    from birth to death, are our owners.

    They have us. They control us.

    They are our masters.

    Wake up.

    They're all around you.

    (The golden rule: He who has the gold

    makes the rules.)

    Our impulses are being redirected,

    We live in an artificially-induced

    state ofconsciousness,

    The movement began millennia ago

    by a group ofscientists,

    They accidentally discovered

    these signals being sent,,,

    The under-class is growing,

    Human rights are non-existent,

    In their repressive society, we

    are their unwitting accomplices,

    Their intention to rule rests with

    the annihilation ofconsciousness,

    We have been lulled into a trance,

    Theyhave made us indifferent,
    We are focused

    only on our own gain ,,,
    Theyare safe

    as long as theyare not discovered,

    Thatis theirmethod ofsurvival,

    Keep us asleep, Keep us selfiish,

    – Keep us sedated,
    The sleeping middle-class

    is suddenly becoming poor,

    We are their cattle,

    We are being bred for slavery,

    The signal must be shut off

    at the source,

    "His skipping the NAACP convention further shows he is counting on the black community’s blind and dumb devotion."

    Ya know, if President Obama had attended the convention, the Right would be lambasting him for that. Fuck them!! Hard!!!

      1. Chichikovovich

        Not without at least one of the following forms of ID, he won't: Gun Permit, Military ID, Hunting License, NASCAR identification, Republican National Committee membership card, Daughters of the American Revolution certificate, Larry the Cable Guy Fan Club card,…..

    1. Baconzgood

      Obama proves his hate for white culture again by going to NAACP convention.

      -Faux Noose-

    2. lingin103

      Yep. If he addresses the convention he is pandering. If he skips it he's neglectful. Heads I win, tails you lose.

  4. ChernobylSoup

    It's getting to where reviewing right wing statements just in order to decry them feels like participating in a hate crime.

  5. PsycWench

    "While he is putting the holes, they are living on doles."

    You know someone congratulated herself on that witty sentence.

  6. Billmatic

    I think we all know St. Ronald the Reagan guided black folk to unprecedented levels of prosperity in this country and President Obama has completely reversed the years of hard work by the GOP in the african american community.

    For shame, Obama. For shame.

        1. Serolf_Divad

          There's still some 42% tread life left on the tires, and I'm told Anne Romney doesn't trade in Her Cadillacs 'till there's less than 35% tread life.

    1. kittensdontlie

      Trickle Down economics was righteous! The poors had to be smart enough to gather the trickles of wealth coming their way, which you don't do by plugging the Holes! Geez…

      1. SexySmurf

        I think we all know Tyler Perry's Medea Goes to Space is going to get made one of these days.

          1. bibliotequetress

            Relevant to nothing: Tyler Perry needs to be deported for selecting himself as the replacement for Idris Elba (sigh! bat eyelashes!) as Alex Cross.
            Again, relevant to nothing. Just saying. Let the snark continue.

    1. flamingpdog

      Aliza has definitely never read the Protocols of the Elders of Mount Zion Baptist Church.

    2. Generation[redacted]

      If they did, maybe Whitesploitation wouldn't be such an under-represented movie genre.

  7. DerrickWildcat

    John Kerry got something like 88% of the Black vote and Obama got something like 95% of the Black vote.
    The only conclusion that can really be drawn from this stat is that John Kerry is 7% less Black than Obama.

  8. prommie

    Well maybe the shiftless negroes would benefit from being more like the old school jews, your Einsteins and Shylocks and such, but you don't want them to go full-on lubavitcher davining-jew, those ones are ALL on welfare!

    For a real role model for the negroes, you should look to the chinamen! Now there is a thrifty and industrious people!

    1. kittensdontlie

      The Chinamen were a good fit for the American industrial age. And I literally mean a good fit. With their slender and diminutive bodies they could extract minerals from small crevices and mineshafts, and in a pinch, as they aged and their bodies stiffened from overuse, could be used as railroad ties, thus completing the cycle of life and our Transcontinental Railroad system.

  9. ph7

    I'm all for everyone tradings skins for a year.

    Blacks become Jews
    Jews become Muslims
    Muslims become Fundies
    Whites become Blacks
    Men become Women
    Teabaggers become Occupiers
    Straights become Gays

    It would be a FUN year on Planet Earth.

    1. SoBeach

      I'd get to be a gay black woman. I can just imagine…um…I'll be back in five minutes…

    2. actor212

      Wait. What would Christians become? Because right now, I'm a lesbian black Teabagger of non-descript religious affiliation. I need an anchor, dammit!

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        Good luck with the atheism. On the other hand, wihout an anchor, you actually get to go places.

    3. proudgrampa

      Your comment reminds me of Tom Lehrer's National Brotherhood Week:

      "Oh, the Protestants hate the Catholics,
      And the Catholics hate the Protestants,
      And the Hindus hate the Muslims,
      And everybody hates the Jews.

      But during National Brotherhood Week, National Brotherhood Week,
      It's National Everyone-smile-at-one-another-hood Week.
      Be nice to people who
      Are inferior to you.
      It's only for a week, so have no fear.
      Be grateful that it doesn't last all year!"

  10. Baconzgood

    Now if she would have just used the asians in this title it would have been a trident of racisim.

  11. Vecchiojohn

    Davidovit has a good point. I mean, there are lots of black people in the military and Obama hasn't started a single war yet. Some job creator.

  12. Oblios_Cap

    Sammy Davis must be so conflicted!

    Did he sleep in but still work hard for all of his success?

    1. kittensdontlie

      There's no conflict. Davis was pure jew. His nose is the tell, and due to the proximity to the brain, his intellect was of a jewish nature. No doubt his coloring was some freak accident of genetics, or possibly as a child his parents purchased inferior dark colored clothing that had runny dye.

      1. Generation[redacted]

        Maybe, but he still had to drive across town after his shows and sleep in North Las Vegas.

  13. JustPixelz

    "The black middle class has been decimated under the economy of his presidency, yet 84 percent of the black community says they will still vote for the president."

    Given the alternative, why wouldn't they?

    BTW: This is a false juxtaposition. 84% of the black "community". But what are the number for actual black middle class?

  14. SorosBot

    Yeah, why don't those poor black people go and earn their wealth themselves, like Mitt Romney and Paris Hilton did.

    1. bonghitforjesus

      If they are too lazy to bother to be born out of the right (rich white) vagina, then they really don't deserve wealth!

    2. sezme

      Yes, if only the Blacks and Democrats would nominate a self-made man like George W Bush!

  15. ttommyunger

    So who are the 16% of Blahs who don't support Barry and what on earth are they thinking? Can Mitt and the Kochs have that many house niggers?

    1. flamingpdog

      yet 84 percent of the black community says they will still vote for the president.

      The other 16 percent are incarcerated for petty crimes and can't vote for the President.

  16. va_real

            That's a lot of UV for a Limey. I'll keep my eyes peeled for a ridiculously bronzed woman.

  17. mavenmaven

    Man, oh-man-o-schevitz, is her article stupid.
    There, I've followed her advice and criticized another Jew.

    1. va_real

      But if she flatters them by pointing out how industrious they are, they will see the light & realize that they can't in good conscience vote for a food stamps president.

  18. BaldarTFlagass

    The blacks should be more like the Jews? What, start their own country in the middle east and live high on the hog on US foreign aid? And how is this different than being on the dole?

    1. glasspusher

      Maybe the difference is, rather than feeling guilt for being late in addressing the Holocaust, half this country is still bitter about losing slavery 100+ years later?

      Maybe because we didn't import Jews here as slaves?

      Maybe…aw, fuck it.

    2. poorgradstudent

      Maybe if food stamp recipients somehow went out to blow up browns then food stamps wouldn't count as welfare either?

    1. ChernobylSoup

      "Would you speak for those who have a glass eye?"

      "Would I? Of course!"

      "No, a glass eye."

  19. anniegetyerfun

    Oh, that's the ACTUAL title of the fucking article. I thought it was one of those Wonket things where we reword the title to get to the meaning faster.

    1. Buckminster

      Her next column will be, "I'm all butthurt because a bunch of Wonketteers took me to the woodshed and schooled me for my yammering ignorance."

  20. anniegetyerfun

    Instead of demanding that the wealthy pay their fair share, he would demand that welfare recipients pull their own weight.

    Yes. Make the poorest do the work. Don't ask the richest to contribute. That's the WND way!

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Getting lardassed teabaggers to pull their own weight would really get things moving.

  21. elburritodeluxe

    By the way, thank God we in the white community have the WND to keep us informed! Amirite guys??!!

  22. BornInATrailer

    I'd hire this moron to do the painting I need done, what with her incredibly broad brushes. Sadly, she can only paint in black or white.

  23. JustPixelz

    "While he is putting the holes, they are living on doles."

    Hey this is a fun game! Let's see how it works with Mitt Romney.

    While he is bragging about Bain, its victims are still living in pain.

    While he is promising no ObamaCare, Massachusetts is living longer with RomneyCare.

    While he is putting the money offshore, our jobs are going offshore.

    1. Buckminster

      While he's stashing money overseas, the poor are begging on their knees.

      Just another billionaire mad about Obamacare.

      While Mitt gets the goldmine, America gets the shaft.

      (You are right. This is way too much fun!)

  24. BaldarTFlagass

    If the blacks became real successful overall, then there would just be some right wing propaganda shit come out like "Protocols of the Elders of Funkentelechy vs. the Placebo Syndrome" or something.

  25. SorosBot

    Having Obama as president really has unhinged the conservatives, now they're just being openly racist instead of the usual game of being coy and trying to hide their racism behind code words.

  26. IncenseDebate

    Hey Blahs
    be like the Jews
    Make a sandwich
    And start a deli
    Remember to hoard all the gold in your banks
    And soon you'll control Hollywood and the media

  27. flamingpdog

    "pulled themselves up by their own bootstraps"

    Does anyone even freaking HAVE bootstraps anymore??? Way to get out teh youth vote, Rethuglitards.

  28. Antispandex

    One might point out that the "decimating" started under Bush and has continued because the President can't get anything done in the Teatard Congress, but that would be "blaming others". Which is bad…and is code for "our stategy is working so shut up about it…oh look over there, PUPPIES".

  29. Poindexter718

    Most insufferable is her faux dudgeon over Bams not trekking down to Houston to speak to the blah's shin-dig. Can there be any doubt if he had that she would be kvetching about the "monochromatic" love fest?
    Besides, fekking Houston in July? That shitz got delegate to sexxy & lovable Joe Biden written all over it.

  30. FraAnima

    WND readers think the blahs should be more like the Jews…circa 1930's: rounded up and put in camps for the Final Solution ™.

  31. Chill_Bill

    The comments on the WND article are pretty hilarious, though:

    "Thank you magical white lady for pointing out that The Blacks can't possibly think for themselves. It's preposterous to believe that many feel he's done a good job in spite of the rampant, unprecedented obstruction from those God-fearing, fetus-loving, send other people's kids to the wars they push while dodging the draft (or have their five healthy sons "serve their country" by working on a campaign instead of signing up to fight the wars they support), teabag sucking republicans."

  32. Baconzgood

    She's right. As far as systematic oppression goes the blacks are relative new kids on the block with thier 400 years of injustice.

    1. SorosBot

      Wait, I remember the New Kids on the Block and they were all white; Joe, John, Danny, Donnie, and Jordan, all totally white.

  33. UnholyMoses

    The problem is you believing they're capable of shame. Hell, one of 'em wrote a book about how we should intern every person with a slight tan, no matter if they're American citizens or not.

    Once you realize they're not, and never will be, capable of self-reflection (the #1 ingredient in Shame) you'll stop being surprised by them.

    1. sullivanst

      Apparently not even capable of noticing their own skin tone when looking in the mirror. That's some serious lack of reflection.

    2. SorosBot

      Being conservative means never having to say you're sorry; hell in their world, you can let the man behind the attack that killed almost 3,000 civilians escape, based on that attack invade a country that had nothing to do with it because of weapons of mass destruction that turn out not to exist, and do nothing while you allow an American city to drown, and still say your greatest regret was trading Sammy Sosa.

  35. sullivanst

    Aliza's just totes jelly that Sen. Droopy Dawg (Asshole-CT) never won the nomination.

    His skipping the NAACP convention further shows he is counting on the black community’s blind and dumb devotion.

  41. barto

    Good writer, eh? Misuse of the word "monochromatic", which would have made more sense if Obama were white, and WTF is a "doles"?!? Also, too, it is people of her ilk who are much more inclined to view themselves as "temporarily inconvenienced millionaires", not Obama supporters.

  42. prommie

    And then he championed free trade, and said that we don't need manufacturing jobs because we could all get work on the information superhighway, building a bridge to the twenty-first century! And then he got a non-sexual blowjob from a zaftig jewess? Coincidence? I think not.

    Aliza has really nailed us. But Blacks have a massive case of Jewish Envy! That is why we we are attracted to religions like Rastafarianism, where we can wear funny hats and long braids, and celebrations in December like Kwanzaa that involve lighting a bunch of candles. When we're not actually claiming to be Jews, like the Falashas and African Hebrew Israelites, we're insisting we're the Chosen People, like the Rastas, Black Muslims and Five-Percenters. Marcus Garvey and Elijah Muhammed wanted The Oppressor to give us our own country, too! We even got White Folks to fight a war for us. (I don't think they'd look too kindly at us developing nukes on the down-low, though.)

    1. horsedreamer_1

      & that's why Apartheid South Africa renounced nuclear arms in 1985. It's bad enough now that there's an Islamic bomb in Rawalpindi. Imagine a Negro nuke in Cape of Good Hope.
