A reader uses the anti-Semitism angle:
George Stark, you lying little kike. I am gonna fuck you up … I want all of my followers and beyond to straighten out this fucking little jewboy, George Stark… I’m gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little hebe, and I’m gonna fuck … you … up.
Would Hilary Rosen be fine with that? So why is she fine with homophobia and not anti-Semitism? Remember the bad joke Tracy Morgan made? The apologies were many – including a condemnation from Tina Fey. But Morgan’s horrible joke was a hypothetical. Baldwin was actually threatening to beat up an actual gay man, and urged thousands of others to track him down and beat him. What we are witnessing is Hollywood’s real loyalty: to its self-righteous, preening own.
