Outrage: Joe Biden Uses Anti-Semitic Term 'Shylock': Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"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.`"


The Anti-Defamation League National Director is absolutely right, Biden should have been more careful. The only more problem is that discretion is a foreign concept to Joe Biden, and just about the only time he`s careful is when he`s making an apology.

Biden apologized on Wednesday saying it was "a poor choice of words" for him to use the term "Shylocks."

No sh** it was a poor choice of words; it`s no different than using the word " nigger" or " spick." The words " nigger" and " shylock" are the most divisive, hurtful, cruel and loaded words in the English language.

Biden once again demonstrated that he`s not ready for prime time, the day Biden is elected President of the United States is the day I will move to Kenya with Obama.
