Oy, Vey! Jews In Portland, Oregon Pissing And Moaning Because The "Race For The Cure" For Breast Cancer Falls On Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year)


On August 15th, 2009, the Portland Oregonian reports that a bunch of local Jews are pissing and moaning because the people who operate the annual Race For The Cure just happened to inadvertently schedule it on the same day as Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

One of the subjects of the story is Friderike Heuer, who personally battled breast cancer. The Portland woman has walked in the Race for the Cure many times, but this year she's hit a roadblock: The date of this year's Portland race, September 20th, conflicts with Rosh Hashanah. She says her faith won't allow her to attend, and claims the scheduling conflict hurts a population already genetically more vulnerable to breast cancer. [Ed. Note: Nobody's "faith" forbids anything. People choose their actions. They may use faith or doctrine to justify their actions, but they still make the final choice.]

Another subject is Christine Gottlieb of Lake Oswego, who is a fourth-generation cancer survivor. She's walked in the Race for the Cure every year that she was healthy enough since 1998, before and after her own cancer, and she's frustrated that a scheduling "mistake" will keep her from participating this year. "You can go to the Dollar Store and buy calendars printed in China that will have all the Jewish holidays on them," she said, adding that she sees no excuse for scheduling the race on the second day of Rosh Hashanah. Ordinarily, her congregation, Neveh Shalom, has a team ranging from 25 to 75 members, who walk or run the Race for the Cure, but they'll be sitting it out this year.

Christine McDonald, the executive director of Komen Portland, which administers the Race, explained that organizers knew about the conflict before announcing the date but were constrained by city policies on the use of Waterfront Park, street closures and security. The size of the event -- organizers expect 50,000 people to walk or run -- means the event has to be held on a Sunday, McDonald said, when traffic is at its lowest. Traditionally, the Race for the Cure is held in September, usually on the third Sunday. This year, McDonald said other events were scheduled downtown for the Sundays surrounding September 20th. Of course, Jews never complain about any events scheduled for the Christian or Muslim Sabbaths.

Complicating the issue is the fact that Judaism uses a lunar calendar; consequently, Jewish holidays haphazardly bounce all over the Gregorian calendar from one year to the next. But Rosh Hashanah begins what are called the High Holidays, extending 10 days to Yom Kippur. They are the most solemn days of the year. During Yom Kippur, devout Jews recite the infamous Kol Nidre prayer, which is as follows: "All personal vows we are likely to make, all personal oaths and pledges we are likely to take between this Yom Kippur and the next Yom Kippur, we publicly renounce. Let them all be relinquished and abandoned, null and void, neither firm nor established. Let our personal vows, pledges and oaths be considered neither vows nor pledges nor oaths." While many Jews try to reassure the public that the prayer is merely ceremonial, explaining that it refers only to vows assumed by an individual for himself alone where no other persons or interests are involved, strong suspicion persists that it actually serves as an escape clause from personal responsibility for Jews. More reasons for this suspicion are explained at Flawless Logic.

Meanwhile, most Christian denominations don't particularly bitch about such events held on Sunday. Although leaders of Southern Baptist churches, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Assemblies of God encourage their members to observe the Sabbath, attend services and avoid shopping or playing sports on Sunday, they added that they'd make allowances for people who wanted to participate in the Race for the Cure. They figure that if Jesus could heal the sick on the Sabbath, they can allow their congregants to participate in a good cause on the Sabbath as well. Don't forget, it was the Jewish Pharisees who bitched about Jesus healing the sick on the Sabbath; the Savior's response was "Is it not lawful to do good?"

The Rev. Carley Friesen, associate pastor of Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church, is a breast cancer survivor. While she doesn't like the event being scheduled on a Sunday, she has participated in the Race for the Cure with teams from her church during the past six years nonetheless. So she sucks it up.

Why not the Jews?

Because of Jewish exceptionalism, which is a precursor to Jewish supremacism. Jewish exceptionalism holds that the Jews are still a Chosen people, and that all others must defer to them as a result. This is why in our modern society, it is always the Gentile who must adjust to the Jew, and never the Jew who must make the adjustment. Any Gentile who questions this is slammed as "anti-Semitic", and is portrayed as "anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews". Jewish exceptionalism, and its bigger brother Jewish supremacism, sow the seeds for genuine anti-Semitism.

Jews, vile, obnoxious, self centered creatures - truly in WWII the alleged persecutors were truly the victims of the Jew and the Jews the victimizers.

"Self-centered" hits the nail on the head. The only group of people I know of who are more narcissistic and self-absorbed are the fags.

I might add that reproducing with your cousins until you have 20 Jewish genetic diseases is a choice for Jews too. But don't you know, Jews are the eternal extra special victims?
