Will the PC Police Be Out Front on This One? Bill Clinton Tells a Jewish Joke

Lloyd Grove reports on a new book, Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machineby Daniel Halper:
In a chapter titled “Charm Offensives,” Halper reports on a very strange encounter the former president allegedly had with a group of rich Republicans at the 2003 running of the Preakness, where Clinton allegedly told off-color jokes at the Turf Club of Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course.

According to Halper, Clinton—“always eager to please”— told his embarrassed audience a joke that began: “These two old Jews are walking down the street.”

“As the joke begins, everyone around the table looks dubious,” Halper writes. “Where is he going with this? Surely the former president of the United States is not about to tell an anti-Semitic story in front of people he hardly knows. This, of course, is exactly what he does, according to a number of people present.”

Briefly, the joke has the two Jewish codgers walking by a Catholic church, where a sign out front offers $100 to converts. One of the Jews, named Abe, agrees to convert and give half the proceeds to his friend. Abe meets with the priests, learns the traditions of the church, is declared a Catholic, and collects his reward.

“Hey! Look at the new Catholic here,” Abe’s friend says. “You got my money?”

To which Abe retorts: “You fucking Jews. It’s all about the money, isn’t it.”
You see, in a politically correct world, jokes are not allowed, which include references to Jews, lesbians, etc. The politically correct poser Bill Clinton, the hypocrite, must understand this is BS.

Will the PC owd parse this joke and discuss it ad nauseam, the way they discussed some taken out of context Ron Paul newsletter quotes   Of course not. The PC crowd is all for BC and HC, so they will be hypocrites in their own right and ignore what would supposedly offend them.



  1. Not gonna lie, that's hilarious. I am more disappointed by the reaction of the "embarrassed audience": what's the use of having "white privilege" if you're not gonna use it to laugh at others? (I kid. Sort of.)

  2. Geez,
    I thought it was pretty funny.
    1. Where do the Jews get dissed here? The joke follows the PC assumption that Jews are discriminated against with the "money" canard. Now, I think they've got a point there, BTW.

    These PC anti-humourists should take a lesson from Chris Rock.
