The next class topic: how Woody Woodpecker promotes the Irish

This might be the most bizarre university lecture I have ever seen:

Hat tip: Andrew Sullivan.

To my knowledge, "Tom and Jerry" was not created (nor was it affiliated with) Walt Disney.

What was left out was Hitler's covert plan to have the cat recognized as a standin for Muslims.

Ah, those good old days of the 19th century, when Jews ruled Europe.

And, tomorrow's lecture is on the existensial meaning of the struggle of Wile E. Coyotee and Road Runner in their senseless (and violent) lives.

I can't believe the misinformation here. The Walt Disney Company didn't become part of the great Jewish conspiracy until Eisner started running it. Everyone knows that.

And the Disney people want you to *think* that Tom and Jerry was an MGM product. That way they can... oh, never mind. If there's something worse than bizarre anti-semitic ramblings, its bizarre anti-semitic ramblings that get most of the facts wrong.

On a lighter note, the current entry for the Holocaust on the conservapedia notes that "The Holocaust was the massacring of the Jewish race during World War II. The Germans are not to blame for this but the Nazi are. Besides 6 million Jews dying, 3 million Christians were killed also along with many priests and nuns. This is a very touchy subject for the Jews and is not often discussed amongst them."

Every idiot knows Tom and Jerry was made by Hanna Barbera and not Disney. If what the profssor here says is right, that means that Josie and the Pussy Cats, the Jetsons, Squiggly Wiggly, Huckleberry Hound, and the Animated Harlem Globetrotters are prime zionist assets. Something I've always suspected.

Those students look pretty bored.

Actually, this isn't far from the fundamentalist Christian attacks on, well, anything. Heavy metal, dungeons & dragons, other religions, etc. It's not much different from Tinky Winky or Spongebob being gay indoctrinators.

Instead of the Jews "to blame", it's the gays, or the satanists.
