Famous movie supports holocaust revisionism

I have argued on this blog that a "systematic" holocaust of Jews was impossible because the Nazis had no reliable way of distinguishing Jews from non-Jews. Now I have found that a famous Oscar-winning movie, "Gentleman's Agreement," supports this argument.

Even the bible contains examples of Jews who were mistaken for goyim -- Moses and Esther. In the movie "Exodus," the British didn't suspect that Paul Newman was a secret Jewish agent. In one famous episode in the TV sitcom "All in the Family," Archie Bunker said that Jews had a secret way of identifying each other -- they changed to Anglo last names but kept their Jewish first names. Then Meathead piped up with another example, "Abraham Lincoln," and Edith responded, "I didn't know Lincoln was Jewish." And going the other way, Jesse Jackson mistakenly thought that Nixon aides John Ehrlichman and H.R. Haldeman were Jewish.

I now don't believe that Ivy League universities ever had quotas for Jews. All the universities had to go by in applications was last names and maybe sometimes first names, and many non-Jews have German and Eastern European last names that sound Jewish, so the only good indicator would be a blatantly Jewish first name, like Moshe. And IMO the problem of mistaking non-Jews for Jews is even worse than vice-versa -- at least no discrimination results when Jews are mistaken for non-Jews.

I was astonished to learn that the whole theme of a famous movie, "Gentleman's Agreement," which won the "best picture" Oscar of 1947 and won two other Oscars and was nominated for five others, is about anti-semitism and the difficulty of distinguishing Jews from non-Jews. Wikipedia's description of the movie's plot says,

Philip Schuyler Green (Gregory Peck) is a widowed journalist who has just moved to New York City with his son Tommy (Dean Stockwell) and mother (Anne Revere). Green meets with magazine publisher John Minify (Albert Dekker), who asks Green to write an article on anti-semitism. After initially struggling with how to approach the topic in a fresh way, Green is inspired to adopt a Jewish identity ("Phil Green") and write about his own first-hand experiences. Green and Minify agree to keep it secret that Phil is not actually Jewish; since he and his family are new to New York and know almost no one, it should be easy to hide . . .

As Phil's research project proceeds, his childhood Jewish friend, Dave Goldman (John Garfield), moves to New York for a job and lives with the Greens while he looks for a home for his family. Housing is scarce in New York, but it is particularly difficult for Goldman, since not all landlords will rent to a Jewish family . . . .

As time goes on, Phil experiences several incidents of bigotry. When his mother becomes ill with a heart condition, the doctor discourages him from consulting a specialist with an obviously Jewish name, suggesting he might be cheated by the Jewish doctor. When Phil reveals that he is himself Jewish, the doctor becomes uncomfortable and leaves . . . .

Dave announces that he will have to quit his job because he cannot find a place for his family to live.

What? A Jew could not find a place to live in New York City, the place that Jesse Jackson called "Hymietown"? Certainly this movie is a gross exaggeration of the problems of prejudice and discrimination faced by Jews.

And that foolish claim has been effectively shot down. Of course you don't understand effective arguments having never made one yourself.

First the cretin uses a movie to try to support his pathetic cause. Then he says of another movie:

> Certainly this movie is a gross exaggeration of the problems of prejudice and discrimination faced by Jews.<

Larry has had a great deal of maltreatment directed to him just because he is obnoxious and obtuse. It is so pervasive that it blinds him to the occasional discrimination against him because he is an ethnic Jew.

Larry must be on one of his rare excursions out of his cave. Otherwise he would have censored this by now.

It would be a waste of time to try to explain it to him. If he wants to know, he should just ask one of his therapists.
