    The title to your posting is too sensationalized! He didn't get "banned" as in banished! He got a 1 game suspension which is somewhat harsh but nowhere as harsh as your posting suggests.

    PS. I am not of the Jewish faith but I'm of Jewish disposition, so I thought that I chime in... Oops! ;)

    So what are you trying to say then? Too harsh for what he said? It's 1 preseason game, it's basically a slap on the wrist. What about what he said? That's what I was getting at. My bad, I'll reword the OP and thread title.

    American sissys.

    Aren't Jewish folk some of the main inventors of a sense of humor?



    It should be well known by now you can't have a opinion about other people.

    So as a Jewish member of the forum I'll chime in.

    Bauer doesn't have a history of saying anything anti semitic, he's an old school kind of player so his sense of humor/verbage etc aren't always norm for this era. That 'joke' has been around a long time, not wildly funny but at best it's worth a raised eyebrow. My guess (IMHO) - josh and hank have been doing games for nearly 10 years now, probably are good friends and Hank told a joke that would've been allowed in private but not on the air. We all have friends of different groups that if we are close enough we can make a joke about here and there.

    Give him the one day ban hammer, he said he's sorry, he gets under the microscope for a little bit and let it go. I hate that this is being turned into the 'outrage of the day' when A) it's not that outrageous, B) it's not from a guy known for saying stupid crap and C) the people that are offended aren't really that offended.

    Want to know what real anti Semitism looks like?

    Those things (kill the jews, go back to Birkenau [Concentration Camp], putting swastikas on a synagogue) are real anti Semitism. Bauer's comments are stupid.

    Regarding anti-Semitism, one is considered as anti-Semitic if:

    1- One does not believe that the Jewish people are entitled to having their own homeland.

    2- One does not believe that the Jewish people have complete freedom in practicing their religion of Judaism.

    3- One does not believe that the Jewish people have their own strong historical heritage and their own creed.

    Making a joke about Jews while caricaturing their alleged frugality, even though in poor taste, does NOT necessarily make one an anti-Semite!!!

    I got no beef with how this was handled:

    No, it certainly isn't the equivalent of some of the really ugly sh/t Ant referenced,
    but it also is a bit too tacky and stereotypical to act like he didn't say anything uncool...

    Minor offense, minor consequence...no one acting hysterical...it's fine...

    I'm (seriously) unclear as to whether or not you're joking here.

    Would all persons prior to 1948 be "considered as anti-Semitic" if they didn't support a "homeland" ?

    Would one be "anti-Hindu" if they did not believe that Hindus are entitled to having their own homeland?
    Is one anti-Sikh if they do not believe that Sikhs are entitled to having their own homeland?

    I agree that Bauer should not be labelled an anti-semite for one lame, insensitive joke...
    but this "one is considered as anti-Semitic if:" list looks pretty arbitrary and wacky to me.
    Where does it come from?

    Sir Lance-a-LoT,

    Let's not open a can of political worms in here. After the establishment of the State of Israel, it is a given that one who does NOT believe in Jews having a homeland of their own, is considered as an anti-Semite. There are many jews of many different nationalities, but there is also the State of Israel where is considered the Homeland.

    Oh, well as long as you say "it is a given." :roflmao:

    Are you loosely handing out the "anti-Semite" designation, or is someone else pullin' that one out of their butt? :rolleyes:

    I think you've brought a bazooka to a snowball fight here Ant. But if you want to carry on that theme, (as pro-war right wing elements in Israel often do), you'll need to go waaaaaay back to Jeremiah 41, 2-3 in the Hebrew Bible.

    2 Then arose Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and the ten men that were with him, and smote Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan with the sword, and slew him, whom the king of Babylon had made governor over the land.
    3 Ishmael also slew all the Jews that were with him, even with Gedaliah, at Mizpah, and the Chaldeans that were found there, even the men of war.

    Fortunately the Chaldeans are conveniently located in El Cajon these days!

    Those would likely be the East-Semetics of the migrant Chaldeans. :D

    Hammering Hank could be looking for a large piece of the head injury settlement pie. Then again, I think he shaved and painted a helmet on his head when he played, less weight and wind resistance. ;)
