    Vice President Joe Biden drew fire from a prominent Jewish group on Tuesday after he described unscrupulous bankers who prey on servicemen and servicewomen deployed overseas as “Shylocks” — a term frequently condemned as an anti-Semitic caricature.


    “Shylock represents the medieval stereotype about Jews and remains an offensive characterization to this day. The Vice President should have been more careful,” Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman said.

    Shylock, the villain in Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice,” is a Jewish moneylender who mercilessly demands a “pound of flesh” from the merchant who defaults on a loan. Whether the 16th-century play is anti-Semitic or reflects the anti-Semitism of the time is a subject of frequent, bitter debate, but the term Shylock is offensive enough that Florida stripped it from state law back in 2009. (Not everyone has gotten that memo).

    “When someone as friendly to the Jewish community and open and tolerant an individual as is Vice President Joe Biden, uses the term 'Shylocked’ to describe unscrupulous moneylenders dealing with service men and women, we see once again how deeply embedded this stereotype about Jews is in society,” Foxman said.

    Biden’s slip came in a speech to the Legal Services Corporation, which provides lawyers to Americans who could not afford them otherwise. In his remarks, the vice president described the experience of his son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who was deployed for one year in Iraq.

    “People would come to him and talk about what was happening to them at home in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being — I mean, these Shylocks who took advantage of these women and men while overseas,” Biden said.

    The vice president's office did not return a request for comment.

    Will the media make a big deal about this? Of course not.

    The question is....
    When has Biden said anything as VP that didn't have to be spun or clarified (apologized for) ?

    I am sure I will get slammed, but Biden at least has that bullshit Irish charm that my crazy uncle has, and so I actually find him endearing. Maybe he just makes me nostalgic for all those very entertaining childhood holiday dinners.

    Great, but he's the VICE PRESIDENT of the country, not your drunk uncle telling Reggie/polack/jew jokes at a party.

    It's astounding what an imbecile he is and his LOOOOOOOONG history of making idiotic statements.


    This one is historic, after his self aggrandizing statement implying that he's more qualified to become VP, he says two of the most historically stupid things ever by a politician. :facepalm:




    FDR wasn't President when the Stock Market crashed and TV didn't exist in 1929. :uscratch:
