Fields: Hooray For Hollywood And The Jews

Guest Columnist

I’m telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like [John] Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they, the people in this country who are Jewish, are an oppressed minority?
Rick Sanchez’s quote which got him fired from CNN.

This is the kind of diatribe that gets the professional Jews, like Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League, in an uproar.  They immediately denounce the remark as a canard up there with The Protocol of the Elders of Zion.

As a Jew, let me take a slightly different take on Sanchez’s remark:  “It’s true and I’m proud as hell it‘s true.

Sanchez meant this as an insult. I didn’t take it that way.  I just heard a jealous loser grasping at straws.

What next?  Attack Asians for being “too good at math.

The original three major networks were all the product of Jews.  Bill Paley at CBS.  Leonard Goldenson at ABC and David Sarnoff at RCA/NBC.

How about Broadway?  Again, it’s the Jews.

Let’s go further. The Meyer family (Katherine Graham was Eugene Meyer’s daughter) owns The Washington Post and the Sulzberger family owns The New York Times. Michael Bloomberg and Bloomberg News. Did I forget to mention Si Newhouse of Condé Nast magazines like Vogue and The New Yorker?

Once again, it’s this overachieving 2% of the American population–the Jews!  It’s that same .3% of the world’s population that has won more than 20% of the Nobel Prizes.

Jews And The Movies

Take conservative gentiles favorite whipping boy–Hollywood.

With the exception of Disney, every major studio was founded in whole or part by Jews.  The Warner Brothers, MGM (Louis B. Mayer and Joe Schenk), RKO (Keith and Albee), Columbia Pictures (Harry Cohn),  Fox Pictures (William Fox, born Vilmos Fried), etc.

We’re supposed to be ashamed of this?

What next?

Deny that Jonas Salk stopped the polio epidemic?  Start a rumor that Albert Einstein was a Baptist?

It always amazes me that White Christianity’s favorite targets are Black’s and Jews.

Their stereotypes criticize Blacks for underachievement and Jews for overachievement.

Special note to White Christian America: At your next meeting I suggest you guys make up your mind which way you are going on this.

While you are at it, explain to me where you get the cajones to attack the media Jews, when the Whitest of Christians were at the helm of  the auto industry and ran it into the ground.   Where were you while the Japanese and South Koreans were eating your lunch?

The movie and auto industries both began around 1910. Have you ever heard anyone attack “The Protestant Auto Cabal?

Tell me White Shoe Detroit.  How did it feel to have to go to a Black President to bail your bigoted, martini drinking, restricted country club asses out of bankruptcy?

Jews Built Great Media Industry

Without government subsidies Jews built the world’s greatest media industry. And while they were at it they projected an image of America that’s the envy of the world.

Have there been Jewish failures? Sure.  Nobody is more upset about Bernie Madoff than the Jews.  But big failure goes with the territory of big success.

I hate to point out to Ricky boy the history of Roberto Goizueta. He was the first Cuban to head a major American corporation. They made him the head of Coca Cola where his singular contribution was New Coke–the Heaven’s Gate of soda.

Hey Rick, You keep Goizueta with a “medianoche and a New Coke. I’ll take Steven Spielberg, Sumner Redstone, Jerry Seinfeld and thousands of other Jews that dominate the industry they practically invented.

By the way, I’ll take them with a corned beef on rye and a bottle of Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray.

Hollywood brings America billions in foreign exchange dollars. Hollywood is the model for the world’s movies.  There is a reason that Indians call their movie industry “Bollywood. There is a reason that Hyundai’s and Honda’s are not made in places called “Little Detroit or “Little Flint.

So, exactly when did success in a free enterprise economy become a badge of shame?  When it wasn’t controlled by the Episcopalians, Lutherans, Presbyterian, Catholics, etc.

  1. new coke is genius says:

    While I agree with the rest of this article, and while the intent of new coke may or may not have been a genius move, it actually was so talked about and had people craving the old coke so desperately that it ended up being a brilliant move for coke, whether it was intentional or not… the old “take it away and then they realize how much they want it back” trick.

    Ah, Sam…

    Something we can finally agree on! Corned Beef on Rye (with Russian Dressing and Coleslaw on the sandwich) and a Dr. Brown’s Cel Ray.

    For those of you who aren’t from New York, that’s a CB Suburban with Tonic.

    I finally agree with Sam Fields!

  4. NewToThisBlog says:

    There seems to be a lot of hatred in this note.

    I believe that Jews should be proud of the accomplishments of their comrades, but it seems to me that Mr. Fields’ premise is that virtually no other person from any other religion ever contributed anything to society.

    I hate bigotry, as should all right-minded people. As South Floridians, I would hope that we could embrace diversity and the accomplishments of all religious and ethnic groups.

    As an American and Citizen of the World, I’m proud of the accomplishments of ALL people- but I don’t feel the need to go to their CV to determine whether their accomplishments should be lauded.

    BTW- You’re commenting on Rick Sanchez now? Wow- how timely! That was one of the hottest stories of last October. I’m looking forward to your timely updates of the role of Jews in the Civil War…

    Alas, Sam, you heard a jealous loser, not looser.

  6. watcher says:

    the PS the the Madoff story was the widow of Jeff Picower a Jew agreed to give back to Madoff’s trustee $7.2 Billion

  7. Put a cork in it Sam says:

    World according to Sam:
    1. Jews>good
    2. Catholics> bad (remember Sam pointed out that the Nazis were Catholics)
    3. Protestants>bad (dumb)
    4. Liberals/Socialists> good
    5. Conservatives>bad (acutally, according to Sam they are evil and not very bright)
    6. FOX News>bad/evil
    7. Republicans>evil incarnate
    8. Democrats>good, intelligent,reasonable people
    9. Keith Olbermann> reasonable
    10. Glenn Beck> bad, nut case

    A few comments Sam:

    I prefer Dr. Brown’s Black Cherry or Cream – I never had a taste for Cel-Ray.

    In numerous posts, you have railed against religion as being a sham. Yet, in this post, you state you are a Jew and are obviously quite proud of the accomplishments of the Jewish people. How do you reconcile this discrepancy? Is being a Jew a cultural experience for you instead of a religious experience? If so, then doesn’t the religion influence the culture – would the Jews have accomplishments and contributions far out of proportion to their percentage of the population were it not for their culture based on their religious beliefs?

  9. nonreligious jew says:

    @Broward voter:
    Whether the over achieving jews are religious or not has nothing to do with it. It’s merely the fact they were born a jew. What you decide to believe in later is up to you. The over achievement just happens to still run through our veins.

  10. Sam Lover says:

    Fields is an atheist who identifies with his Jewish cultural roots. Jews were once held together by their religion. In Israel now there are Orthodox and secular Jews, much like here. There are probably even Jews who don’t believe in God. They are still are part of the Jewish culture. Hitler didn’t differentiate between Jews who believe in God and those who didn’t. They all went to the gas chamber.
    Fields is proud that his cultural Jewish ancestors created much of the entertainment world we enjoy today. It has nothing to do with his belief in God.

  11. S only says:

    This is SO funny—everyone analyzing Sam!

  12. What Would Reagan Do? says:

    How does a list of achievements by Jews deteriorate into a sweeping indictment of white Christians? I guess it happens when the author is a bigot but Sam left one off the list. It was a Jew named Jesus who founded the Catholic Church.

  13. Mister Courthouse says:

    It is interesting that the anti-religious atheist is now praising he Jews. Don’t Jews believe in God, Sam?
