Chicago TV station uses Nazi symbol for Yom Kippur story. The corpulent, flatulent, hygiene challenged, Nazi obsessed blogger has no comment

Too bad this was not Fox News using the infamous Yellow Star with “Jude” at the center to commemorate Yom Kippur. The usual suspects such as Debbie Waserman-Schultz, Media Matters for America, and an unemployed has-been from Culver City would be all over it claiming that despite our government’s acquiescing in Iran’s getting a nuclear bomb, the real anti-Semites are the “wing-nuts”. Another intellectual epic failure by the Left and the “grievance machine”. This was the equivalent of a burning cross symbol to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

WGN-TV Chicago Apologizes for Nazi Symbol in Yom Kippur Segment

The news director of a Chicago TV station apologized after a staff member mistakenly chose a symbol of Nazi Germany to illustrate a story about Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement.

“Regrettably, we failed to recognize that the artwork we chose to accompany the story contained an offensive symbol,” the director, Jennifer Lyons, said in an apology on Wednesday. “This was an unfortunate mistake. Ignorance is not an excuse.”

The apology came the morning after Tom Negovan, an anchor with WGN-TV Chicago, read a 20-second description of the holiday. Over his shoulder, viewers could see a graphic of a Star of David badge emblazoned with the German word “Jude,” or Jew, on striped material of the kind used in Nazi prisoner uniforms.

Marc Karlinsky noticed the badge and posted a photo of the segment to Twitter, which was widely shared.

In an on-air acknowledgment that lasted roughly as long as his original Yom Kippur segment, Mr. Negovan made what he called a “major correction” and said that anchors were not able to see the symbol during the original broadcast.

“We apparently used a symbol that is extremely offensive to the Jewish community,” he said. “We mistakenly showed a symbol used by Nazi Germany to identify Jews.”

The badge, which has been used in various forms to discriminate against Jews since the Middle Ages, was used by Nazis in Germany to isolate Jewish people from the rest of society. Aside from using the threat of violence to force Jews to wear the badges on their clothing, Nazis also used the symbol on propaganda leaflets, according to the Holocaust Memorial Center. “Whoever bears this sign is an enemy of our people,” read one example.

After the station apologized online, on air and on Twitter, people on social media were still in disbelief that no one at the station caught the error.

“How did this ever get broadcast without someone catching the mistake?” one user asked the station on Twitter. The station did not answer.

      That was too polite. 😆

      You have to know, these are graduates of some Bon Journo-List School of Tomfoolery, all hyped-up on social justice and political correctness, but too thick to crack open a history book and actually know something about how we got where we are today, as a nation, and as humans.

    Muslim pilgrims continue hajj rites after crush kills 700

    Because it happens every few years that hundreds of people are crushed or stampeded to death during hajj. So it’s no big whoop. Because violent death (even when unintentional) and Islam seem to go together like peas and carrots.

    Boehner announces resignation. Curiously does NOT manage (although accused of being a drunk) to smash his whole fucking face, destroying one eye’s vision, and breaking multiple ribs with a moron explanation that keeps changing that he was working out in his bathroom.

    • Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

      I forgot all about that cray-cray episode. Amazing how the MSM buried that one. 😆

      • Yeah, there was a big conspiracy.

      • SpaceAllah says:

        So you believed Reid’s story about nearly losing an eye while working out? It smelled like the battered wife’s excuse immediately, but then folks like us can tell when we’re being lied to shamelessly.. The media frequently buries stories for Democrats free of charge because they play for the ‘right’ team. That’s why any of the Obama scandals which would have sunk any Rebuplican president never gained traction or village idiot Joe Biden somehow survived shooting himself verbally in the foot 5,000 times. Because that was just ‘Joe being Joe,’ ya know.

      • SpaceAllah says:

        p.s. Hillary, your candidate that is supposed to steamroll any ‘rock ribbed conservative’ as you keep saying, just got caught committing perjury. You support this shit? Figures.

  3. I am awaiting Charlatan and his fellow-travelling merry band of freaks to tell us just how sincere they found the apology, move on, nothing to see here, nothingburger, nontroversy, etc.

      Where is she “anti gay”? There are plenty of anti gay marriage folks out there, including the DEMOCRATS who voted for Proposition 8 in California.

    • Chunky's Missing Brain says:

      The rainbow unicorn himself was against gay marriage (oh I mean anti-gay) before he was for it. So was the Shrilldebeast.

      And as we see, leftist scumbags like Chunkles purposely conflate being anti-gay marriage with being anti-gay. They’re super clever like that. That’s why they run around pretending illegal alien is an ethnic slur and arresting gang banging drug dealers is racist.

      • Chunky's Missing Brain says:

        Oh I thought he was NTTATWWI

      • Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

        It’s common knowledge that Shep is gay. What’s really despicable, is how the same Left that is constantly accusing conservatives of hating gays and whatnot, finds nothing wrong with spreading malicious lies and gossip about Shep, justified in their tiny minds by his employment with Evil Fox News. The hypocrisy is astounding.

    • Chunky's Missing Brain says:

      Wow what a needless anti-gay hate barb against Shep, an all around nice guy by everyone’s account. Luckily for Shep it couldn’t have come from a more completely ignored loser who makes a total joke ass of himself trying to use french words he can’t pronounce right to try to look smart. Because Shep merely mispoke. Whereas the fat loser Chunkles really did think the word milieu is pronounced milyo. And that beclownment has resulted in many many great memories of mockery for us while firmly sealing Chunky’s fate as not exactly “on air talent” worthy as a commentator or expert.

      Let us once again bask in the big fat idiot’s most delightful public moron moment. The new web media version of the Youtube fat guy on the skateboard who face plants on the parked car.

      Also let’s not forget how many weeks Chunk spent defending his man crush, the insecure crooked liar Brian Williams on Twitter and then has the gall to put Fox News in quotations.

    Nine years ago, after their 16-year-old daughter was shot to death, John-Michael Keyes and Ellen Stoddard-Keyes could have chosen to be invisible.

    Emily Keyes fell victim to gunman Duane Roger Morrison, a 53-year-old transient who entered Platte Canyon High School and held students hostage during a standoff Sept. 27, 2006.

    “I made some very deliberate choices with my eyes wide-open,” John-Michael said.

    There would be big things on the horizon for the Keyes, but first … the ride.

    • Chunky's Missing Brain says:

      I have two 16 yr old daughters (twins) currently on senior retreat. I was just thinking as I was doing some cleaning/organizing of shared areas, what if they didn’t come back? I’m glad the parents in this story were able to go on and allow it to become a positive. They have strength I’m not sure that I do.

  23. Zeus Crankypants says:

    I have a question. I’m going to Israel Oct. 3. If someone throws a rock at me, can’t I pick one up and throw it back?

    My hair is down to the middle of my back, blond, still good color for someone who is 62-years old. I’m thinking of picking up a few extra shekels by asking Christian tourists if they want their picture taken with Jesus. Heck, those gladiators do it around the Roman coliseum.

    I really want to see the inside of the Dome of the Rock. If I pronounce the Shahada to one of the Arab guards or something, will they let me in. I’ll take it all back once I get off the mount.

        The other side of that is they don’t take offense readily, either. Just tell ’em what you think, and you’ll get along fine.

    Al Capone would go fishing in upstate Wisconsin, apparently. His dentist had a fishing cabin up there somewhere.

    Anyway, Al went fishing at his dentists place once (maybe more?) but ended up giving the dentist his fishing reel and pole.

    That dentist’s son was good friends with my father. They were both doctors.

    Anyway, the dentist’s son gave my father this infamous fishing reel and pole when he got it when his father died.

    The thing dates from the 1930’s and looks like it.

    Fairly crude construction. But not bad.

    Anyway, when my parents died, I refused to particpate in the shark feed that my siblings seemed to enjoy figuring out who got what….

    A few years later, my sister came for a visit and (apparently) my brother insisted on several boxes full of stuff for me (back when they divided up everything).

    She dropped it all off when she came for a visit that one time.

    About 2-3 years after that, I decided to look in the boxes of things and, low and behold, my bro’ stashed Al Capone’s fishing rod and reel in there for me.

    The rod is only about 24-30-inches long.
