– If you think the profoundly paranoid ravings of Henry Makow are bizarre, you really must check out his movie reviews. They take “WTF” to a whole new level. Makow believes the heroine of the film An Education is the headmistress played by Emma Thompson, an old-school Jew-hater who icily commands one of her pupils to stop dating a Jew because “they killed Jesus”. Then Makow has the chutzpah to criticize an indignant Jewish commenter for “reinforcing anti-Semitism“.
I’d like to point out that An Education is based on the real experiences (now in memoir form) of Lynn Barber. The headmistress Makow so admires barred Barber from returning to school after her relationship ended. Despite this obstacle, Barber went on to graduate from St. Anne’s College, Oxford, and became a very successful journalist. She wouldn’t have had a 30-year marriage and a rewarding career if, at the age of 16, she hadn’t rejected the skewed values of her family and her school.
Her beau is the story’s villain not because he was a Jew, but because he was a married con man and thief who seduced teenagers and wowed their families with his superficial charm – a profile you may recognize in many a gentile douchebag.
– One of the wackiest conspiranoia sites in the world, Educate Yourself.org, shows us the photographic proof that President Obama and the First Lady are lizards. Or that they’ve been Photoshopped. Or something.
– A home video of a UFO cattle abduction has been making the rounds among ufologists. Retired Englishman Derek Bridges says he filmed a bison being floated into a hovering craft at night (you can view the video here). A few ufologists think this is the ultimate proof that living creatures really are being sucked off the face of the earth into alien motherships, but to me it’s a blur and a glowing blob.
