(Jewish Group) Trenton councilman defends McBride, says 'Jew down' is just a 'statement of speech'

Longtime Trenton City Councilman George Muschal says that while he didn’t hear a colleague make an anti-Semitic slur but says he’s heard the term “Jew them down” referred to many times and thinks it’s “just a statement of speech.”

“You know, it’s like a car dealer, they wanted $5,000, you Jew ‘em down to $4,000,” Muschal said. “It’s nothing vicious. The expression has been said millions of times.”

----snip---

At one point, Muschal asked the Globe reporter to repeat his name.

“Is that a Jewish name?” he asked.

Told it was, he responded, “OK. There you go,” and continued the conversation.

WHAT THE FUCK?! Yet another fucking asshole coming forward to DEFEND anti-Semitism! But hey, it is just anti-Semitism, not worthy of real discussion as it is not a "real" form of bigotry.

1. The expression has been said millions of times

That doesn't mean it isn't insulting, bigoted, anti-Semitic, etc
The Jews and money bit

2. Apparently to these assholes, it is A-OK.

It is just another example of anti-Semitism being acceptable to some.

3. I took a good friend to task for a derivative of "Jew down."

His statement was similar to the OP where he said "juice them down." Jew/Juice, what's the difference? he asked. I had to explain and it was painful as he never put those two words together or even heard "Jew down."

4. He's heard the term before so that makes it OK

He's clearly too stupid to represent the citizens of Trenton City.
