I am sad to say that you have the exceptional distinction of being the first Jewish individual I have written to regarding actions or remarks damaging to the Jewish people. Before I start allow me to make a critical point so you know who you have offended. I am a Liberal with a sense of humor. I am very tolerant, very accepting and I like a good laugh. Even at my own expense. Sometimes especially at my own expense. If you offend a Trump supporting angry Conservative it would be hard to make a case for that to mean anything, but to offend me? Well I guess you can say to do that you really had to have made an effort.
You see Larry, there is funny, and then there is disgusting. Your remarks this past Saturday night on SNL were disgusting. They reflect what can only be a personal disdain for who you are where you come from. The comments were so bad that I do not need to do any additional research on you to attack you for them. I don’t care how much charity you may or may not have given, or kindnesses you may or may not have shown till now, the comments you made both about Jewish sexual deviants and the Holocaust were so damaging, insulting and hurtful to the Jewish people as a whole, there is nothing you can say or do to justify them. Not to mention the fact that there was absolutely nothing funny about them.
You chose your monologue on Saturday Night Live to declare how many of the perpetrators of sexual harassment are Jewish. Did you do it to help the victims? Did you do it because it upsets you? No. You did it because you felt it would get a laugh. You decided to appeal to the lowest of the low at the expense of your own people. Are you proud of yourself today? I’m not blind. I see how far too many of the guilty are Jews. But did you do this on an interview where you expressed concern in order to possibly help change things as they are? Again no. You did it on SNL because somehow you felt it appropriate to joke about the sexual deviants within the Jewish community. If you had taken a moment to think about this you might have realized the last thing the Jewish world needs today is a famous Jewish comedian singling out his own people.
Your follow up to these comments just went on to prove how much of your motivation may be in self-hatred. For anyone to make light of the death of 6 million people of his own religion indicates a dangerously sick disconnect. I want you to take a moment, close your eyes and imagine every one you care about, all your family and closest friends suddenly murdered. Now take it one step further and imagine how some, if not all of them were raped or tortured before they were murdered. Stop and realize how many people could close their eyes and open them up to the same devastation. When you finish doing this I would like you to please tell me what part of this you find funny? What part of this belongs in a comedy routine? If you think any of it is or does, I would say you are not merely a self-hating Jew, you are a sick man as well.
I used to like you Larry. I found much of what you said to be funny. However, after what I heard come out of your mouth I not only find you to be anything but funny, I find you to be detrimental to the Jewish people and even a little dangerous. I can turn off the TV and never have to listen to or watch you again. But you have to live with your self-loathing. If I was not so angry with you I’d feel sorry for you.
