A better title for this UK-filmed propaganda would be "An Indoctrination"

Britain's latest anti-semitic atrocity is cinematic, very similar to a nazi propaganda horror story. The Jewish Journal of LA writes about this crap whose scriptwriter, Nick Hornby, has deliberately titled, "An Education", featuring an otherwise pathetic Jew who takes advantage of a British girl, and even British society:
Jenny: “Oh, and by the way ... David’s a Jew, a wandering Jew. So watch yourself.”

We were only 15 minutes into the film and this was the second reference to the “Wandering Jew,” an age-old, European anti-Semitic stereotype. The British coming-of-age film, “An Education,” had gotten rave reviews, yet the more I watched, the more the character of David Goldman resembled the parasitical Jew of “Der Ewige Juden” (“The Eternal Jew”) — one of the infamous 1930s Nazi propaganda films I had studied in Peter Loewenberg’s class at UCLA.

From the moment David starts following the teenage Jenny in his fancy car, the pudgy, effete David Goldman (played by Peter Sarsgaard) proclaims his ethnicity. (Jenny: “I’m not a Jew.” David: “No, I am. I wasn’t ... accusing you.”) Like the predatory creature characterized in “Der Ewige Juden,” Goldman pretends to adopt the values of his host culture in order to turn its treasures into his profit. He offers Jenny “three five-pound notes” to drive her cello home safely out of the rain; “I’m a music lover,” he tells her. Then he proceeds to corrupt the innocent gentile girl (played by Carey Mulligan) with expensive flowers, gifts, concerts, art auctions and trips to Oxford and Paris.

David enriches himself by ruining good English neighborhoods, deflating property values and looting cultural treasures from displaced widows. He moves blacks into white neighborhoods: “Shvartzes,” he tells Jenny, “have to live somewhere; it’s not as if they can rent from their own kind.” The only identifiable Jew in the film, he constantly uses the collective “we” to justify his wickedness: “This is how we are, Jenny,” Goldman editorializes. “We’re not clever like you, so we have to be clever in other ways, because if we weren’t, there would be no fun.” He uses the word “stats” for old ladies he victimizes. They “are scared of colored people; so we move the coloreds in and the old ladies out and I buy their flats cheap.” Along with his partner, Danny, David barges into a house, military style, and speeds away with precious relics. “We have to be clever with maps,” he tells Jenny. An ancient map, he rationalizes, “shouldn’t spend its life on a wall…. We know how to look after it…. We liberated it.”

Is it possible that the film attempts to link the predatory Jew with his purloined Jewish homeland?
If it does, they certainly have done a very clever job making it as subtle as possible. What a piece of crap.
In his book “Anti-Semitic Stereotypes” (Johns Hopkins University Press, 1995), Frank Felsenstein explains that “stereotypes stress the difference between the dominant group and the other…. The ‘true born Englishman,’ is the ideal ‘counter-stereotype’ of the Jew. The wandering-Jew stereotypes were constantly invoked in anti-Semitic narratives to present the homeless Jews as living proof of God’s declared intention that these were once his chosen people and should not be granted respite until they recognized the true Messiah.”
I wouldn't be surprised if the invokers of those stereotypes were anti-God themselves; the research by Felsenstein certainly suggests that. And the "true" Messiah, I assume, is someone who's anti-religious?!?

Most telling about this alarmingly nasty film is how the writer Nick Hornby allegedly based it on the writings of a woman (as far as I know, it's a journalist named Lynn Barber who worked in the 1960s), yet changed it to suit his sick vision, and do as much as possible to tie this Jewish character's dishonesty with his race as a whole, and founding religion. Did I mention how disgusting it is that an actress as notable as Emma Thompson would take part in this? But I guess it shouldn't be too surprising when it comes to the Brits.

Anyway, there you have it, another disgusting example of anti-semitism from the UK, which clearly isn't going to improve much in the forseeable future.

Update: here's another review from Joe Baltake worth reading.

Labels: , ,

Debbie Schlussel stated she would not vote for the film as a critic. She's not going to extend approval to any form of anti-Semitism. She gave it four "Hitler" ratings which tells you how awful "An Education" is - and its now respectable again to lash at out at the Jews. No one anywhere would make a derogatory film like that about a black, Chinese or a Muslim. But its open season on the Jews today.
