"I was out-niggered, and I will never be out-niggered again." -- George Wallace
Of course I was deeply delighted that Democrat David Weprin lost the election
to replace Anthony "Wagger" Wiener in New York City's Ninth District, a hotbed of Zionist craziness. Weprin is the scion of a very odious New York political family; I'm old enough to remember hating his dad Saul, the speaker of the state assembly back in the day, which should tell any New Yorker all that he needs to know. This particular revenge was a dish eaten very cold indeed, but as the proverb says, it tasted mighty nice.
The district hasn't returned a Republican since, what, the 1920s? And Weprin, the Donk loser, is a shayner Yid, whereas Turner, the victor, is a shaygetz. Go figure! The tea leaves are being read more attentively even than the opera-omnia of Slavoj Zizek.
Another eminently detestable figure, Ed Koch, got himself into this picture, to what effect remains somewhat unclear. Koch is a New York version of the Blue Dog phenomenon avant la lettre -- a gay(*) Jewish Reform Democrat from Greenwich Village who made his career by promising to unleash the cops and put the shvartzers and the Palestinians in their place. His aisle-crossing embrace of the Republican is very true to form; but one wonders whether he really swung any weight. Did Koch put Turner in Congress, or did Turner just put Koch back, temporarily, in the camera's eye, which he so deeply loves?
For that matter, how much did Fort Zion really have to do with it? Weprin and Turner spent most of their time trying to out-nigger -- I mean, out-Zion -- each other.
Zionist hard-liners have, of course, a vested interest in seeing this result as a referendum on the microscopic differences between the Donk and the 'Derm on Israel. Weprin foamed at the mouth on the subject; but Turner foamed just that little bit more. Conclusion, according to the Lobby: Omit no occasion to foam about Israel, and foam to the top of your bent. No suprise there, eh?
I personally don't buy it. I think it was a referendum on Obie, whose disastrous coattails, let us hope, have swept Weprin into a Toyota dealership vel sim.
I haven't seen the turnout numbers. If they're tiny, as is usually the case in such opere-buffe, then maybe the Zionist reading of the tea-leaves is the right one: four Likudniks voted, and three of them held City jobs awarded through Ed Koch's patronage.
But if turnout was a bit bigger than that -- then we might be looking at something a bit more
The national DP seems to have awakened rather late to the possibility of disaster. I'm on their money-milking mailing list, which suddenly went nuts a few days before the election. Perhaps they saw it -- or feared, at least, that it would be seen -- as a slap in the God-Emperor's face.
Now, on the morning after, it's really rather difficult to see it any other way. When your party loses a seat it's held for almost a century, in an election where the candidates are nearly indistinguishable...
Bring on the deluge, I say.
(*) Koch is gay only in the most technical sense. My own diagnosis of him is that (unlike Obie, as another writer has suggested) Koch really is a narcissist, and would rather watch old clips of himself on the VCR than have actual sex with any other human being. Nobody is nearly as interesting to Ed as Ed himself is.
He's also not actually very Jewish. There was a funny incident early in his reign as Mayor.
He's a big-time Chinese-food fresser, and during one of these pig-outs -- I use the term advisedly -- he choked on a pork spare rib he had inhaled, as was his wont, without bothering to chew. Some staffer, alas, knew about the Heimlich manoeuvre, and so unfortunately saved him to plague generations yet unborn. In order to avoid offending his black-hat constituents, the absurd story was put out that he had choked of a "piece of spinach".
