The Ship Be Sinkin': Downfall Of A Dangerous Anti-Semite
In a world in which respected professors Stephen Walt and John Mersheimer charge that "the Israel lobby" controls United States foreign policy, a Hamas-led government is deemed legitimate, and Iranian madman Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatens to annihilate Israel while denying the 20th century annihilation of the Jews, it's comforting to know that Micheal Ray Richardson, apparently the most vicious anti-Semite of them all, is likely to lose his job after recent comments about Jews.
Micheal Ray, the former Net and Knick who wasted his immense talent by repeatedly indulging in cocaine, had been head coach of the Albany Patroons, and this season led them to an appearance in the CBA championship.
But on Tuesday, Richardson told two reporters: "I've got big-time lawyers. I've got big-time Jew lawyers."
As reported on ESPN.COM, "when told by the reporters that the comment could be offensive to people because it plays to the stereotype that Jews are crafty and shrewd" Richardson responded:
In many contexts, Micheal Ray's comments would be offensive. They certainly were not the most intelligent thing to say, and indicate a fair amount of ignorance on Richardson's part.
But I doubt there was any malice or hate.
Regardless, Richardson has been suspended for the remainder of the season, and barred from his team's games. His job - and his comeback from drug addiction - are in serious jeopardy.
I know I'll be sleeping better tonight knowing that while we Jews control foreign policy (Condi's playing footsie with the PA and pressure on Olmert is all part of The Zionist Conspiracy), we are not crafty and shrewd. Not even "big-time Jew lawyers" like MoC and Elster.
The ship be sinkin'.
