‘God’s Not Dead’ actor Kevin Sorbo laughingly tells Jews: ‘News bulletin: You did kill Jesus’

Making the rounds promoting the DVD release of his latest movie, God Is Not Dead, actor Kevin Sorbo ventured into touchy territory when he accused the Jews of killing Jesus Christ, reports Right Wing Watch.

In a phone interview with “Vocal Point” radio program host Jerry Newcombe, the former star of television’s Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, explained that the success of Mel Gibson’s 2004 film The Passion of the Christ, opened doors to other Christian-based films being made.

Initiating the coversation, Newcombe said, “I think Mel Gibson crashed a gate, in a very big way, 10 years ago.”

“Oh, he got attacked when he was shooting ‘The Passion’,” Sorbo agreed before continuing, “From the Jewish community, saying ‘look at the way you’re portraying us,’ I mean, I go, okay, news bulletin: you did kill Jesus.”

Sorbo then laughed, adding, “Come on!”

Quickly jumping in, Newcombe corrected Sorbo saying, “Well, they delivered him over to the Romans, right.”

“Exactly,” Sorbo agreed. “They did deliver him, so they had a hand in it. Um, and what did it do? A $30 million movie made $500 million, so Mel sort of had the last laugh there.”

President Donald Trump's former communications director -- and perhaps his most trusted aide outside his family -- claimed blanket immunity throughout her closed-door testimony, but Hicks still gave Democrats something in their legal battle against the White House, argued Margaret Carlson for The Daily Beast.

A number of Democrats running for president are kind of weird about food

Published

on

The New York Times has posted a series of short videos of the Democratic candidates for president answering important questions, like what they propose to do about our broken health care system and just how crooked Donald Trump is. Because campaign coverage demands candidates be allowed “human” (debatable!) moments, the Times also asked the participating candidates about their go-to comfort foods on the campaign trail.

Reparations, concentration camps and racial slurs: Republicans want to turn all discussion of race into pointless culture war debates

Published

on

It wasn’t slavery. They are concentration camps. Racial slurs are not a youthful indiscretion.

This week has seen a series of culture-war debates dominate the discourse only to be derailed by bad faith arguments about semantics.

First, on Monday, nearly all of the right-wing ecosystem was engaged to defend the honor of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School senior and gun rights activists Kyle Kashuv after he revealed that his admission to Harvard had been rescinded. At least one of Kashuv’s classmates in Parkland, Florida, released a number of text messages from him which included racist and misogynistic attacks on fellow students, including the description of black athletes as “niggerjocks.”
