245. Notice how we stopped talking about the IDF destroying video evidence
Edited on Thu Jun-10-10 07:05 AM by howard112211
and are now discussing whether it is anti-semitic to call a Jew a Jew instead?

There is a movie made by a Jew/jewish person who does this awesome long rant about how "jewish person" makes it sound like "Jew" is some sort of slur, and how he therefore gets pissed when people say "jewish person" instead of "Jew". I'm fine with political correctness as long as it is consistent. Once it reaches the point where any kind of descriptor, as you have noted, can be claimed to be offensive by someone, I generally check out. The rant in that movie convinced me. I now always say "Jew" and not "jewish person", regardless of complaints. I say "Turk" and not "turkish person" too.
