Maybe this wouldn't be an issue for you if you didn't have that absurd tribal need to identify as "a Jew". Maybe the identity as "a Jew" carries too much Spiritual Exclusivity and Existential Supremacy baggage. All that Chosen shit. 'n' shit.
Perhaps you should keep your god-damned magical thinking (hey thanks, Crowbar!) to yourself. Honestly, I don't care if you want to worship a 6 pointed star and call yourself Chosen and sequester yourself with opposition to the goyim and their ways of treyfness.
I don't really mind if you want to remove leavening for Passover, to guilt the shit out of yourself while you make "jokes" about Catholic goyim and their guilt issues.
What did the ancient Jewish people do to deserve this self-flagellation of guilt mixed with arrogant Chosen-ness?
More importantly, why would someone choose to make him/herself into something so many people find distasteful, socially speaking?
Because the rabbi cut some skin off your dick?
Because your parents did the song-and-dance of guilt-with-superiority?
And why are you so quick to heap scorn and hatred on the Christians?
And why are you so greedy?
And so eager to make a quick profit regardless of long-term social destruction qualities advanced in the monetary gain?
And so eager to run confidence scams on others while pretending you're doing it for social or technological progress that benefits all of humanity?
These are the questions I'd like to see someone ask, as a stand-up routine.
But the poor soul would be terminated before the act was over.
Or cut completely out of the "scene" or whatever the rent-seekers call the enterprise of selling stand-up performance done by others.
It's considered healthy to make fun of rednecks. Of Christians. Or of Southerners. Or, especially in this 2d decade of the 21st C, it's rather chipper and very vigorous, health-wise, to make fun of heterosexuals.
I can't see how any of this ties together though.
