(Image Reuters/ Israel National News)French President Francois Hollande stripped British fashion designer John Galliano, who was convicted last year of making anti-Semitic remarks, of France’s prestigious Legion d’Honneur award.
Galliano, 51, was involved in two drunken episodes in a small Paris bar and restaurant. His anti-Semitic remarks, some of them caught on video, led to his conviction last year on charges of “public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity.”
In February 2011, Galliano berated a museum curator about being Jewish and uttered racial insults at her friend, who is of South Asian origin.
The court also saw a video of Galliano, the previous November, declaring his love for Adolf Hitler.
Galliano blamed his outbursts on addictions to drugs and alcohol.
Hollande, elected in May, has been outspoken in condemning anti-Semitism and crimes against Jews committed by the French police under Nazi occupation.
The Legion d’Honneur is France’s highest award and is given to individuals who have served France and its ideals.

it is a start. It won’t bring back Jewish citizens that were murdered in France because of the lie of Multiculturalism… but it is a start. Some Cultures are superior to others. That isn’t racism… and you enable hate when you deny that some cultures are hateful. The fashion world is as a whole a very sick culture.

Why Are So Many Public Figures Ranting Against "The Jews"?

March 7, 2011

When celebrities are drunk, on drugs or just high on their own egos, they often engage in rants. These days many such rants are captured on cell phone videos or audio tapes and go viral on the internet. Nothing surprising there. What is surprising to many is that the rant de jour these days seems to be directed against Jews.

Consider the former Dior designer, John Galliano, who was sitting in a bar in a Jewish section of Paris and announcing his love for Hitler and smiling as he told the people at an adjoining table, who he apparently assumed to be Jewish, that “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f—– gassed.”
Or consider Charlie Sheen who claims to be high on Charlie Sheen, attacking his producer by emphasizing the Jewish nature of his original name, Chaim Levine.
Or Oliver Stone telling an interviewer last year that too much attention is paid to the Holocaust because of “Jewish domination of the media.” And that Hitler wasn’t all that terrible to the Jews.
Then there is the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, ranting and raving about Satanic Jews controlling the world.
This is not an entirely new phenomenon. Mel Gibson delivered a similar rant when he was stopped by Los Angeles police in 2006. “F*****g Jews… The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.” Gibson then asked the deputy, “Are you a Jew?”
Generally, sobriety results in apology, but the damage has been done.
The question is why the Jews? There’s an old joke about a Nazi rally in Nuremberg where Hitler is screaming, “Who causes all of Germany’s problems?” An old man in the crowd shouts back, “the bicycle riders.” Hitler’s taken by surprise and asks, “why the bicycle riders?” To which the old man replies, “why the Jews?” That was the 1930s. But “why the Jews” in the second decade of the 21st Century?
Let me suggest two possible answers. The first is that little about the nature of prejudice has really changed, but the advent of the age of high technology has brought private prejudices into the public arena. In commenting on the Galliano outburst, Michael Goubert, a French DJ and music designer, observed that “virulent views like those expressed by [Galliano] are not rare.” But “the public expression” of intolerance is unusual and particularly troubling, according to patrons of the bar in which Galliano expressed his bigoted views. The pervasiveness of cell phone videos and the widespread use of the social media have blurred the line between private and public expression. What used to be only whispered to friends at a bar is now broadcast around the world.
There is a second, a far more troubling answer to “Why the Jews?” Prominent public figures have blurred another line as well—the line between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism, between attacking the Jewish state and attacking the Jewish people. Consider widely publicized remarks made by Bishop Desmond Tutu, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and the American Model of Freedom, and a man openly admired and praised by President Obama. He has called the Jews “a peculiar people” and has accused “the Jews” of causing many of the world’s problems. He has railed against “the Jewish Lobby,” comparing its power to that of Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin.
He has said that “the Jews thought they had a monopoly of God: Jesus was angry that they could shut out other human beings.” He has said that Jews have been “fighting against” and being “opposed to” his God. He has “compared the features of the ancient Holy Temple in Jerusalem to the features of the apartheid system in South Africa.” He has complained that “the Jewish people with their traditions, religion and long history of persecution sometimes appear to have caused a refugee problem among others.” Tutu has minimized the suffering of those murdered in the Holocaust by asserting that “the gas chambers” made for “a neater death” than did Apartheid. He has complained of “the Jewish Monopoly of the Holocaust,” and has demanded that its victims must “forgive the Nazis for the Holocaust,” while refusing to forgive the “Jewish people” for “persecute[ing] others.”
He has complained that Americans “are scared…to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful—very powerful.” He has accused Jews—not Israelis—of exhibiting “an arrogance—the arrogance of power because Jews are a powerful lobby in this land and all kinds of people woo their support.”
Tutu has acknowledged having been frequently accused of being anti-Semitic,” to which he has offered two responses: “Tough luck;” and “my dentist’s name is Dr. Cohen.”
Former President Jimmy Carter too has contributed to this new legitimization of Jew-bashing, by echoing Tutu’s derisive talk about the Jewish domination of America (“powerful political, economic and religious forces…that dominate our media”) and his use of the term “Apartheid” in his book about Israel.
By thus blurring the line between legitimate political criticism and illegitimate bigotry, widely admired people like Tutu and Carter tend to legitimate the kind of anti-Semitic attitudes that manifest themselves in the rants of celebrities like Galliano, Sheen, Gibson and others.
This blurring has also affected the tone on university campuses around the world, where Tutu and Carter are particularly admired and imitated. I speak on campuses throughout the world and I had never, until recently, heard and seen the kind of language now being directed against Jewish students and faculty who support Israel.
So I was not as surprised as some by the recent celebrity rants. The oldest prejudice has never quite disappeared. It just went underground and has now resurfaced as a result of new technology and new legitimization by the likes of Bishop Tutu and Jimmy Carter.
Fortunately there are intelligent and principled young celebrities like Natalie Portman who are trying to offset this development by speaking out against bigotry.

As someone who used to work in the fashion industry selling the advertising for the designers and industry I can tell you this is the tip of the iceberg. If you don’t believe me find a copy of LeBook or BlackBook open up the pages and call some designers, stylists or art directors at random. Fashion is not only French. Fashion has a very strong contingent in some of the most Anti-Semitic places on earth… such as Lebanon for example. In my case I was wronged by a Swedish company called Modern Holdings who balked on their promises and saw their Jewish consultant and representative as politically disposable, but this Swedish thinking is prevalent in the industry. Fashion in the end is not art. I repeat it is not art. Fashion is mercantile. Fashion is married to economics and revenue… and one doesn’t need to be creative to realize how a Jew fits into their bias. Fashion is full of merchants, trade and it’s origins are involved in a unique and exclusive thread in Jewish culture. Jewish culture will always be influenced by the garment industry which is one of the few places Jews were allowed to make an honest living. Jews were both the innovators and the victims. Many forget the Triangle factory fire was also the fashion industry for example: The lives of those Jewish women that had to jump out of hot windows similar to the WTC a century later is bound to cultural elitists and their bigotry that never stopped. When abusive labor conditions aimed at Jews ended a public relations war in the name of Anti-Zionism launched.

(VIDEO) John Galliano stating, “I love Hitler,” and, “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f**king gassed.” The clip was reportedly taken at La Perle, the bar where Galliano was arrested for assault and making anti-Semitic remarks last Thursday.

(NY TIMES) The actress Natalie Portman, who has an endorsement contract with Dior for its Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, has strongly condemned its chief designer, John Galliano, for anti-Semitic remarks after a video surfaced of Mr. Galliano appearing to deliver a tirade in a Paris bar

Progressives created an epidemic. the fashion world blusters with elitist politics of academia of Chomsky and Norman G. Finkelstein. Should we put our heads in the sand and pretend we don’t know where the hate comes from? Listen to what these people are talking about!

I can’t applaud Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman, the way everyone else is doing. She’s not exactly the “Proud Jews” she claims to be…. 

Portman–who was born in Israel and whose father is Israeli–still brags about her ongoing friendship with Jordanian Palestinian Queen Rania, an open anti-Semite and Jew-hater. In fact, Rania is so much of a Jew-hater that she repeatedly refused to have her dumb propaganda book printed in Hebrew.  Don’t do us any favors, Rania. The kids book, “The Sandwich Swap,” is supposedly about peace and understanding, but really just preaches tolerance for extremist Muslims, equating their extremism to a mere preference of peanut butter over jelly.  Yup, tell that to the ghosts of 9/11, no longer getting to custom order their PB&J.
