Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 05, 2018

An insane New Year's Eve brawl broke out on the Upper East Side after a drunk and impatient millionaire NFL heiress allegedly started making anti-Semitic remarks at the coat check of a Manhattan restaurant. It is claimed she then attacked a man with a designer glass purse after the row spilled out onto the street. According to a report in New York's Daily News, which has video of the on-street fight, an argument broke out after Jacqueline Kent Cooke, the daughter of late Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke, got impatient while collecting her belongings at the coat check at Caravaggio, a restaurant on East 74th Street.

She allegedly said, "Hurry up, Jew," to the person in front of her, Matthew Haberkorn, a 52-year-old lawyer from the San Francisco Bay Area. ...

As the situation escalated, Cooke's boyfriend allegedly chimed in with his own offensive remark, telling Haberkorn's daughters, who were with the party, "Happy bat mitzvah, girls," according to [his wife Linda] Thomas and Haberkorn.

Where is Madbomber

He's busy spitting on poor people and telling them how much better their lives are than Hondurans.

In what world is this an insult?

Can one of the resident DR nazi defenders shed some light on this one?

#6 - In the world that surrounded those people at that spot on that night. In the context of his girlfriends remarks, not knowing the age of the girls (around 13?), it can be construed as an insult

"Hurry up Jew"?

They decide to be open anti-semites and that's the crap they go with?

It's not intimidating it's not funny and it's dumb just......dumb.

Per the article...

Haberkorn said he didn't know who his assailant was at first, but the restaurant gave her name to the NYPD.

When a reporter for the Daily News visited Cooke's apartment Wednesday night, she was wearing pajamas and a finger splint, and denied the entire incident.

"There's nothing that happened on New Year's Eve," she said. "I was here in my apartment."

However the News reports she turned herself in at the 19th Precinct station house and was later led out in handcuffs.


She and her designer glass purse are anti-Semitic bald faced liars.

I don't get it. How is calling someone 'Jew' an insult? Or saying 'Happy bat mitzvah'?

Hitting people with your stupid purse is a different story, I admit.

Thought experiment -

Let's say you're a Muslim living in Pakistan, and you say to someone who is Jewish, "hey, Jew" ... well, they're probably not going to appreciate that because it comes across as a slur.

Always remember -- context is everything.

Unpleasantness at the coat rack preceded the unpleasant dialogue, and that's why people -- especially those who are Jews --get to say that it was anti-Semitic.

And while I'm not an expert, I would guess that this standard applies to all races, all religions, etc.

I still don't get it. This isn't Pakistan with it's Jewish population of 7 and a half people. This is the You Knighted States by Gawd. "Jew" is not a doity word here.

In fact, lets do a thought experiment...

I am walking past a public toilet and I hear feeble and desperate banging from inside. I ask "you OK dude"?

And a voice from inside sez "Help me. I am stuck in the toilet. I don't have a lot of time. If I don't make it, tell the world my name is BOAZ and I died trying...."

I run out and round up some people and free him just in time.

Now, if I had yelled "Help Help! BOAZ is stuck in the toilet!", the people would've asked "BOAZ? BOAZ who???"... and it would've taken minutes to explain who he is... minutes he ain't got.

Instead I would yell, "Help Help! A FREEMASON is stuck in the toilet" and boom! Instant help, no explanations.

In such situations, precious seconds count.
