Raybon Kan

The difference between Jews and Muslims

Check out this quote:

Wellington Council of Christians and Jews secretary Dave Moskovitz said he hoped to speak to Kan about the offensive joke.

“When a third of your people were wiped out in one go it’s hard to find anything about the Holocaust funny.”

“I lost family in the holocaust and there’s still people around who were in those camps, and some of those people live in New Zealand.”

Joking about the holocaust was never appropriate, much like a joke about rape would be considered bad-taste, he said.

Although offended by the remark, Moskovitz did not think the tweet should be deleted.

“While Raybon’s comedy is inappropriate and insulting, I think we should go around respecting people’s freedom of speech.”

This is a stark reminder of the difference between Jews, Christians and Muslims. Somebody tells an offensive joke and they say, leave it up, respect people freedom of speech.

But in contrast if someone writes a book (Salman Rushdie) deemed offensive then a fatwa for his death is issued, if some people draw pictures (Danish Cartoons) that are deemed to be offensive then more fatwa are issued for their death and protests break out world wide leading to riots, violence resulting in a total of more than 100 reported deaths, and if someone makes a film (Fitna) that is offensive then a fatwa is issued on the producer and if a film rally upsets someone then the producer is threatened (Theo van Gogh) and then killed leading the co-producer to go into permanent hiding.

Look at the different responses and I dare you to tell me that Islam is just the same as Christianity and Judaism when confronting challenges.

Hitler finds out about Raybon Kan's Tweet

On Raybon Kan

I note that the story has made the Herald on Sunday.

This post isn’t about the tweet. When I posted it last night I posted it saying I bet he gets in trouble for it. But I can now see where this is story is going and my prediction is it is going nowhere. I’ll tell you why.

In this country it is ok to make jokes about Jews. Muslims no way, but Jews yes. About the Governor-General, no and the jokester must be sacked, but Jews yes. You can’t make jokes about Indian¬†Commonwealth¬†Games preparations but you can about Jews. You can’t make jokes about Maori, but you can about Jews. Jews and the Exclusive Brethren, they are the ones where there is open season for joke telling.

This is the double standard that exists in New Zealand. I doubt we will see UNITE union flunkies protesting outside Raybon Kan’s employer, or boycotting his shows, because all he did was tella ¬†joke that offended some filthy Jews.

No don’t get me wrong, I’m with David Farrar on this issue, but I wonder where the shriekers and yellers from the left that scream racism and take offence at much less are on this issue?

Their silence is telling. Next time they screech in outrage about some joke or another we should point at this case and tell them to STFU.

Bet he gets in trouble for this tweet

Someone will get offended for sure and complain. Pretty sure this tweet will get deleted. I wonder how this will play out? Chinese comedian offends Holocaust survivors.
