´The last time a German looked this
hot was when they were pushing
Jews into ovens´: Outrage as Joan
Rivers refuses to apologise after
´vulgar and offensive´ joke about
Heidi Klum´s backside

Daily Mail [UK], by Sam Webb

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/28/2013 3:17:15 PM

Joan Rivers has been blasted by a Jewish pressure group for a joke she made about German supermodel Heidi Klum´s daring Oscars outfit. ´The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens´, said the 79-year-old--herself Jewish--before doubling over with laughter. The veteran comedian made the comment about the Holocaust on Monday´s Fashion Police show on E! when reviewing the low-cut shimmering gold dress worn by the German beauty to attend Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in West Hollywood.[Snip]´Making it worse, not one of her co-hosts made any effort

Comments:
Considering the source, not unexpected. But others around the woman should have at least cringed, for heaven´s sake.

I seriously believe that she had some sort of trauma early on in her life where she lost the ability to mentally set any boundaries in her own mind. Nothing is off limits to her.

Gross, but consistant...

If Daily Mail were so concerned about offending people, why did they repeat it by printing this?

Agree that this is in bad taste, but sort of in line with that old Yiddish saying: " If life hands you a lemon, make lemonade".
I recall that Joan was bold enough to mock Hillary Clinton while she was trying to make believe she was a New Yorker and more recently referred to Michelle 0bama and her failed attempts to be fashionable as "Blackie O".
Joan is OK in my book.

I saw this on the "Fashion Police" show Monday night. The others did cringe. It was a stupid joke, but she does this kind of thing all the time and Joan is all about trying to be funny. Most of the time, she´s somewhat funny, but I hate her politics.

She should probably apologize, but people should learn to let stuff pass instead of being perpetually outraged.

Yes. Rather tasteless but Joan probably doesn´t give a rip.

I also get a little tired of the selective outrage practised by the left and others who should know better.

It is not funny, but I really think people need to stop getting all offended over everything. When I was younger I couldn´t stand Rivers -- probably because I had no tolerance for obnoxiousness back then. But in today´s world, Rivers is really tame. So, she is actually easier to listen to than most of the other so called comedians.

Anyway, #4, you hate her politics? What are her politics? As far as I know, she is a Republican. Maybe you don´t like her brand of Republicanism?

Rivers, Don Rickels--on and on. There are a lot of comics who use this kind of material mostly to create a shocked reaction from the audience. Love it or hate it, no point in getting worked up about it. They´re going to continue in the same vein. It´s all they know.

In the early 90s I visited Yad Vashem in Israel. When I came out of the Children´s Memorial I saw one of the men in our group completely break down in tears. His parents had escaped the camps (they were children at the time and eventually met here in the U.S). NO ONE else in the family survived. I will never, ever forget that man and the pain and sorrow I saw that day.

Vulgar and offensive does not begin to describe it.

The dress looks like a fancy curtain cut up. It is hardly "hot". Also, there are a lot of hotter looking tail ends in Hollywood. You can even see better in Wal-Mart. I don´t like to judge anyone solely on their appearance, but when that´s how she is marketed I figure its fair game.

Joan and her daughter Melissa have their own reality show. She rolls those jokes off her tongue on a daily basis. She has a huge gay following also. I think she does it for attention but I´m really surprised that QVC still allows her to hawk her wares on their shopping network. She makes a mint.

Giving Rivers a pass because she´s Jewish means you dont believe in free speech,... ( hear me out!). If such jokes are offensive for Gentiles to tell ( as I think they are) then they ought to be offensive if Jews tell them. You would be p*$$ed if a German said that, or if a Muslim comedian said that. Just like with black humor... and the N word. blacks can say it, but others are wrong if they say the word? Point is, if it´s bad/wrong for one, it should be bad/wrong for all. Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Rivers ceased to be funny decades ago. Vulgarity and cruelty are no substitute for wit. Ever. Carson could break up an audience just by lifting an eyebrow. Rivers wasnt worthy to clean his boots.

Yes she is offensive. So what? Lots of people are far more so than her and we dare not criticize them because of their pigmentation or religion. Its not right, but it is reality.
I see things every day that are so disgusting they make me cringe, but in order to live my life the way I want, I have to leave them alone to live theirs. That´s what freedom is. Someone else can control other peoples´ behavior. Its not my day to do it.

Vulgar...crass...offensive and tasteless....

And yet I still chuckled.

Joan has never been politically correct and as someone previously pointed out, she is the female Don Rickles. Everybody and everyone is fair game with Joan.

I elicited laughs at a job site when I observed that the building had had more face lifts than Joan Rivers. Had she been there, she would have laughed too.

A pregnant journalist is recovering in hospital today after a pro-Kremlin political leader in Russia told two male aides to ´violently rape´ her at a press conference. Nationalist Vladimir Zhironovsky launched his extraordinary tirade after reporter Stella Dubovitskaya asked him an innocuous question about sanctions against Ukraine. The founder of the far right Liberal Democratic Party began shouting wildly, before suddenly manhandling two young male aides towards the pregnant mother-of-one. He then shouted to them: ´When I say, you run to her and violently rape her.´ The parliamentary reporter, who is six months pregnant, is now being treated in hospital

A huge fire in Gibraltar, caused by a fuel tank explosion, shut down many online betting services and disrupted gamblers during a busy day of sport. Residences near the blaze were evactuated following the fire, which broke out at around 1pm local time. The explosion occurred at Gibraltar´s main power station and the fire shut down much of the area´s electricity. Thousands of residents and tourists were left without power while firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was eventually brought under control at around 4.30pm local time. A Gibraltar Government spokesman said: "The fire is under control and there are no casualties

Immortalised in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem about the “valley of death”, the Charge of the Light Brigade is remembered as one of the most glorious defeats in British history. The documents overturn much of the established wisdom of the battle and provide clues as to how the calamitous attack, during the Battle of Balaclava, in the Crimean War, came to be accidentally launched. [Snip] The charge saw the light cavalry mount an assault into a valley flanked, on three sides, by Russians. Lord Raglan, overall commander of the British forces, had intended to send the Light Brigade to pursue and

What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long. The cycle we can see with our own eyes, in our own lifetimes, is the sunspot cycle that is normally eleven years long. [Snip] It has become established—for those who are willing to look at the evidence—that climate will very closely follow our colder Sun. Climate is no longer a mystery to us. We can predict forward up to two solar cycles, that is about twenty-two years into the future. When models of solar activity are further refined, we may be able to predict climate

Of all the many absurdities of the great climate change non-crisis which has been pointlessly obsessing our planet this last three or four decades, surely the most egregious is this: global warming is good. No really, it is. As a few bold heretics--such as Australian geologist Ian Plimer in his book Heaven And Earth--have long been trying to tell anyone prepared to listen, the human species is designed for warmth not cold. Ice ages are something we should naturally fear; warming periods are something which for which we should yearn. All the historical evidence confirms this--that periods of warming

This portrait of the Queen, taken by celebrated British photographer David Bailey CBE, was released today ahead of the occasion. It shows the monarch smiling at the camera - while donning a pearl necklace, earrings and a brooch. Her jewellery is accompanied by a simple dress by Angela Kelly, who has served as the Queen´s personal assistant and senior dresser since 2002.

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships. Excellent head teachers were either reduced to the status of figureheads or forced out

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race. "They have to talk about and focus on the issues that are important to their constituents. And what´s also true is, if you look at the success rate and the track record of

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

An unholy alliance between the Tea Party and the teachers’ unions threatens to derail the most promising education reform in decades. Like Rocky in the early rounds, the new Common Core math and reading standards are being pummeled left and right. From the left: Education icon Diane Ravitch says the Common Core represents a “utilitarian view of education” that is too focused on testing, data, and accountability. From the right, “ObamaCore” is denounced as federal intrusion. Heritage Foundation education fellow Lindsey Burke calls it “an effort to impose a uniform, standardized curriculum across the country.” From the further right, the always

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,

New York Times columnist David Brooks said Sunday that he believes President Obama’s foreign policy isn’t “tough enough” and that he has a “manhood problem” when it comes to dealing with leaders such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Assad. Mr. Brooks expanded on Sen. Bob Corker’s earlier comments on “Fox News Sunday” that Mr. Obama is “creating an air of permissiveness” with regards to Russia. (Snip) “And let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely — but a manhood problem in the Middle East,” he continued.
