Quote of the Day

Ta-Nahesi, on that drunken-young-Jews-bash-Obama video:

For what it's worth, on a very visceral level, what I see is a bunch of drunk racist white kids, doing what I'd expect a bunch of drunk racist white kids to do. I don't really have "higher expectations" because of the particulars of the Jewish experience, anymore than I have "higher expectations" for Irish-Americans due to the oppresive immigrant experience of their ancestors.
JewSchool has more, describing it as "Drunk Americans = Israeli Public Opinion":
Presenting this the way Max Blumenthal did is misleading. Anyone who knows Israel sees these kids and knows those accents are American. With the exception of the South African-sounding girl and the Israeli accented guy at the very end, these all appear to be pre-college, right-wing yeshiva Americans. Itís a very recognizable demographic in Israeli life, not the broader public.

Those didn't look like any Yeshiva kids I knew. The crass language alone would tend to lean that towards American colelge students.
