Bigots Of Wigan Rejoice: You Can Now Attack Liverpool’s Mario Balotelli For Being A Black Jew
Mario Barwuah Balotelli’s mother is a Jew. She’s the daughter of Holocaust surivors. Yep, Mario is a black Jew. This is great news for racists who are tired to attacking the player’s skin tones. They can now broaden their chants.
But is his being the son of a Jew enough to save the Liverpool striker from the censors and offence-seekers?
He hopes so.
Is Mario Balotelli the self-loathing Jew?
Shut up about what?
The BBC tells us:
The Football Association is to investigate a social media post by Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli which appeared to contain anti-Semitic and racist references. Balotelli, 24, deleted the post from his Instagram page of Nintendo computer game character Super Mario.
The Italian later tweeted to deny the text of the post was offensive.
The FA confirmed it was looking into the post, while Liverpool said they will speak to Balotelli.
A club spokesman told BBC Sport: “We are aware of the posting which has since been promptly deleted by the player. We will be speaking to the player about the issue.”
The post was so offensive the BBC doesn’t even show it.
We will. This is it.
He’s an Italian plumber created by Japanese people, who speaks English and looks like a Mexican. … jumps like a black man and grabs coins like a Jew.
Like all good Jewish jokes the punchline comes right at the very end. Jews are the only race in this mantra that have their culture mentioned. Jews are reduced to a sterotype used to attack them.
Still. If Liverpool don’t want Super Mario, we know one club who does.
Wigan Athletic, are you there..?
