The Latest From The Groves Of Academe

Head Asplosion Warning!!

Well, ain't that a kick in the head...

I learn from Kurt's site that one of my favorite pieces of chorale music, the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's 'Messiah', is apparently a Magnum Opus celebrating the slaughter of Jews.

Yup, some learned professor at Swarthmore college has cleverly deciphered and deconstructed the piece, and it's all just theme music for killin' those pesky Jooooos.

Here's a snippet of the article reporting this breaking news. Read the whole thing here.
Assault on Christendom
By Michael Linton

Wow. We didn’t know. The “Hallelujah Chorus” is a paean celebrating Titus’ sack of Jerusalem and the Christian’s God’s bloody vengeance upon the Jews. That was the New York Times’ Easter Sunday gift to its readers, courtesy of Swarthmore professor Michael Marissen.


You know, it's like there's a calculated effort being made to keep me in a constantly pissed-off state.

You know what these fucktards remind me of? Hyenas. When they run across something tasty that they just can't stomach, they take a dump all over it so no one else can enjoy it. Hell, maybe it's weasels that do that. You get my point...

Well, I have a rebuttal, thanks to the magic of YouTube. Here's the Hallelujah Chorus being sung in Hebrew. It's definitely not a professional production, what with the conductor attempting to lead the chorus and the audience at the same time, but they've got the spirit of it down pretty good.

Enjoy, and consider sending your kids somewhere other than Swarthmore...
