Is Charlie Sheen an anti-Semite?

Questions abound over possible reasons for Sheen’s dismissal from “Two and a Half Men.”

Headlines from a variety of entertainment, business and news sources are announcing the cancelation of Charlie Sheen’s long-running television program; Two and a Half Men. The reason why? A crazy rant delivered by the abusive and often drunk or high actor, on the Alex Jones Radio show. But wait, there’s more.

The same articles suggest that Sheen is an anti-Semite, or at least guilty of including anti-Semitic slurs in his insane radio rant. What did he say? Nothing, other than referring to the show’s creator and Sheen nemesis, Chuck Lorre, by the Hebrew name, Chaim Levine. Hardly evidence of Jew-hatred.

For starters, Lorre’s name at birth was in fact, Levine! And while I do not know his Hebrew name, or even if he has one, Chaim could well be the chosen Hebrew parallel for Charles or Chuck. As my great-grandparents would have said, “we should be so lucky to live in a world where using someone’s Hebrew name counts as anti-Semitism.” In other words, in a world in which there is genuine hatred of Jews, labeling Sheen’s words, anti-Semitic, is absurd.

If anything, Sheen feels that he was personally attacked – that his integrity was called into question, so he called out the integrity of his so-called attacker by attacking Lorre’s decision to change his name. It was a stupid move on Sheen’s part because there is no evidence that a change in name represents a lack of integrity. And if it does, then Sheen should be speaking with his father, Martin Sheen, who changed his name from Esetvez.

Name changes, especially in the past, were not about a lack of integrity, there were about overcoming ethnic bias. If anything, the need to change one’s name represents a flaw in the culture, not the one making the name change.

I suspect that the executives at both CBS and Warner Brothers who labeled Sheen’s remarks as anti-Semitic, did so because it gave them a sense of being on the moral high ground when they pulled the plug on the show. It helped them to avoid explaining why years of public drunkenness and continued mistreatment of women were, apparently, not sufficient reasons to cancel the show.

While we should all feel good about living in a culture where charges like “anti-Semitic,” “racist” and “homophobic” are taken with increasing seriousness, that increasing seriousness also creates new levels of obligation regarding tossing such charges about too loosely. In fact, doing so will ultimately create a counter-trend in which those same charges will come to have little or no value at all. Think “the boy who cried wolf.’

    Brad, I respectfully disagree. It really sounded to me that what he was saying was “Hey, this guy’s a Jew” with a wink to other anti Semites that might sympathize with him. Why else would he mention his given name? To call his integrity into question as you suggest? How does changing your name demonstrate a lack of integrity?

  • vizh

    Honestly, while nothing he said was anti-Semitic, it’s certainly the impression that’s given by stressing, repeatedly, the producer’s Jewish sounding birth name. As the poster above noted, why else bring it up, especially when his own family’s last name was changed from Estevez? If somebody kept referring to Charlie Sheen as “Carlos Estevez” while stressing everything negative about him, I’d certainly suspect that person had a problem with Hispanics.

  • billring99

    I think that Charlie is so deranged that attributing any sort of philosophy to him, racism included, is highly questionable.

    Jews are a weird group of people. If you look for a problem you will find it, add to that your skewed interpretation, and bam!, 95% of the World are anti-semites.

  • flotmeister

    The show creator’s given name is Charles. Whether or not his Hebrew name is Chaim is anyone’s guess, and it certainly would not have been divulged to Carlos Estevez, since I doubt him and Chuck go to the same synagogue. Jewish name is usually given in the naming ceremony, sometimes several years after child’s birth, so it is not in any official documents. I think Carlos picked the name Chaim using the same reasoning Rev. Jesse Jackson used referring to New York City as “Chaime town”

  • JDMDATL

    Let me summarize the answer to this article’s title: Yes.Brad, your analysis is naive. Sheen is reading right out of the Mel Gibson drunk antisemite playbook.Classic example of alcohol induced disinhibition, revealing the underlying (and true) character of the person.Or as it’s described in layman’s terms: instant @%%hole, just add alcohol.

    Imprison millions of Palestinians in a giant gullag and whine about supposed antisemitism by some actor – so typical of the jewish cult.

  • alance

    Hirschfield deserves credit for his defense of Sheen. Charlie is not anti-Semitic. Charlie is Charlie. The network was stupid for dumping the show. It looks like they are bearing false witness.Charlie fell off the wagon – and now he is back on – ready to resume his life again. All I remember about his radio rant was that he dislikes AA, which is sort of like a quasi-religion with their 12-step program. Charlie is entitled to his opinions.

  • stugots711

    He crossed the line by use of the code words just as Jessie did with his ‘Hymie Town’ remark. In a society so diverse as ours, such comments are unacceptable. We have multiple code words for every race and orientation that are just not suitable for broadcast. Notice he did not specifically attack Lorre’s character or conduct shortcomings but deliberately attacked his ethnicity. Unacceptable.

  • jonweiss1

    I am not a Jew, I have been told that the family name is of Hebrew origins, but in reality I’m just an American by nationality and a Christian by religion.That being said, I am a firm Zionist. As for Charlie Sheen, he’s entitled to his opinion, as are we all, mine happens to be that Charlie, his dad, and his brother are all no talent hacks. But that is simply my opinion. If he keeps working in Hollywierd, it is no consequence to me, since I don’t watch his moronic show anyway. Nor is his alleged “Addiction Illness”, of any importance. I did find Charlie’s Dad completely laughable in his inventing a lame excuse for his own failure at child rearing. In my younger days I had a severe encounter with alcohol, I confronted the “addiction”, no alcoholism in NOT an illness, I did not get “struck with the drunken virus”, I chose to drink and learned to like it too much. Later, I had a significant emotional event in my life, and came to the conclusion that either I was going to stop drinking or it was going to kill me, and I just wasn’t ready to die yet. I stopped, I am now a recovered alcoholic, and aside from an occasional beer or glass of wine with dinner, which is extremely rare, I no longer drink, I stopped the large scale drinking over 30 years ago. So, in relation to Martin Sheen’s recent TV interview (aka session of excuses for Charlie) I have NO SYMPATHY for Charlie whatsoever, if he kicks the booze and drugs, more power to him. If not, it’s his problem.

    As someone qualified to make a psychiatric diagnosis (I have been a licensed clinical social worker for 22 years), but who ethically will not do so without having a patient in the room with me for observation, I cannot say what is going on with Mr Sheen. That said, his public behavior appears (not is) consistent with numerous previous patients I have worked with who have met the criteria for Bipolar I disorder in a manic episode. His mood appears elevated / grandiose / expansive and at times irritable; he has an inflated sense of self esteem; he seems to have racing thoughts, pressured speech and is easily distracted; his impulse control seems poor and his judgment impaired; his involvement in sexual indiscretions seems accelerated; and from my perspective his substance use is consistent with attempts I have seen to mitigate or control these symptoms. There are more criteria that his friends, family and associates may have seen, but on the public record I have not. I have been moved by the depth of despair his father and brother have expressed for him, though their comments have not endorsed my observations. Mr Sheen might well benefit from a psychiatric evaluation and possibly medications. I hope it does not take the full exhaustion of his resources to get him whatever help he needs. He and his family have my prayers and sympathy, but not my judgments.

  • Jayne

    I think THEFRESSER is right on the mark. Why would Sheen have used Lorre’s real last name except as an attempt to say to other anti-Semites “hey, in case you didn’t know, this guy’s a Jew, so think about that now”? Adding a clearly Jewish first name — not even the guy’s name! — was just an attempt to make Lorre sound even more Jewish, in my opinion. It’s the same as when certain political nuts keeping using Barack Obama’s middle name when speaking of him, in an attempt to paint the president as “not one of us,” he’s foreign, he’s strange. I think you’re far too quick to defend Sheen and ascribe good motives where there is no evidence of innocent intent. Taken in context, during a rant where Sheen places his own brilliance and courage above anyone else, it’s quite clear why he used the name.

  • DwightCollins

    with all the problems we are having with muslims, this is what you write about…

  • John991

    Most of us know nothing about what has been going on behind the scenes. Charlie worked with the show’s writers and producers for years. Perhaps his anger is justified. In any event, it’s too bad CBS isn’t run by people with more sense,Who cares what Charlie Sheen does in his private life? He shows up, does his job, and leaves. The show is a hit and is one of the best TV shows ever. Why not leave it at that?

  • blasmaic

    With Estevez and Levine scratching and pulling hair you’ld think the whole world has become Miami.Some people change their names to escape bias, while others choose names like Yolanda to assure that their children are not interviewed for jobs that a person named Yolanda would not be hired to perform.

  • mikepost1

    The brillant and successful Hollywood writer and producer Chaim Levine has himself blogged about his name and has spoke about it. Charlie repeated the guy’s name… maybe cuz he thought it sort of funny and off beat and would add something to his rant against the guy.

  • tbarksdl

    Mr. Hirschfield identified, but glossed over, the real issue raised by Sheen’s firing, as he rushed to make his point about alleged anti-semitism. Hirschfield hit the nail on the head when he wrote “…years of public drunkenness and continued mistreatment of women were, apparently, not sufficient reasons to cancel the show.” Exactly. But let’s go further than that. Remember: Hirschfield is talking about Sheen’s personal behavior. But what about those average Americans who were offended by the show’s content as well–its persistent gutter language and plots and its gag lines centered on swarmy sex and bathroom humor. To many of us, it was just plain filth. And what was the reaction of the producers and network suits to our taking offense? Stuff it, they said. They had nothing but disdain and contempt–or derisive laughter–for our disgust. And our even greater disgust at Charlie Sheen’s personal behavior? Not just public drunkenness, but his open flaunting of his use of drugs and association with prostitutes. His life, in short, as a serial lawbreaker and moral reprobate. How did the network execs treat our disgust? An amusing trifle, they said. Can you imagine those amusing, uncool, unsophisticated Americans believing that we CBS moguls have any obligation whatsoever to fire Charlie Sheen just because of his personal indiscretions!But then–the untouchable star has the audacity to insult the show’s creator. And within hours, the execs cancel the show and fire the star. As long as it was only decent Americans who took offense, no problem. But offending one of the network suits? Intolerable!What a revelation about the contemptible sub-humans who run our TV networks and are responsible for taking American mass culture into the gutter. This ranks as one of the most self-serving acts of hypocrisy of all times.But let’s see some light in this dark sewer. Let’s view the firing of Charlie Sheen as a precedent the next time Congress wants to impose more regulation on the content of our TV programs, or some TV star engages in outrageous personal behavior; and the network suits respond by crying “First Amendment” and “censorship” and “a star’s private life is none of our business.” Let’s be prepared to remind them that a TV network itself has set the firm precedent that even insulting an executive is cause for dismissal and cancellation. By that standard, firing a star for being a drug abuser or engaging in public brawling of any kind has become a piece of cake.It’s time to fire Ronnie and Snooki. Remember Charlie Sheen!

  • fstrimper

    Why did Levine change his name? Was he ashamed of being a Jew? I think that’s what Charlie was trying to get at.

    I live in NYC and through the papers am familiar with Sheen’s playtime activities. Mr. Estevez is as much a Sheen as I am an Estevez. However, that is not the point.Back to his playtime activities. There are many New Yorkers who wonder why this bum is not in a the Tombs (the nyc jail) or Rikers (another nyc jail). Rather than his repeated visits to rehab village he could receive the treatment that all others receive when captured off film and benefit from the rehab of Rikers or the Tombs.I suspect he will continue being an a** hole until, someday, he really hurts someone other than himself and won’t be able to buy his way out of it. Than he’ll be more than a name. He will be a number.

  • observer1776

    Sheen is an alcohol/cocaine-abusing hedonist who is a megalomaniac

  • gagalbert

    Hirschfeld comes from a long line of Jews that almost never want to identify someone as a Jew hater. Why? Because they know there are lots of Jew haters and they don’t want to be seen as too much of Jew. Anyone that believes Sheen was not using “Chaim Levine” as a epithet must then also believe that during presidential campaign, emphsizing Hussain as BHO’s middle name had no ill intent. But I guarantee that Hirschfield was one of the people that did say that using Hussain was racist. This very newspaper, regularly publishes the most vile Jew hatred available in its comments columns. Look at the comments when Bill Kristol or Charles Krauthammer or any other pro-Israel person writes a column. It is despicable, but it is of course, because of self hating Jews like Hirschfield, all totally acceptable. And finally, the Alex Jones show and his website are hotbeds of anti-Semistism….Duh!!!!! Really, Jews in this country need to grow up and either stop being ashamed of being a Jew or stop calling yourself a Jew or idenifying as Jews.

  • doyouktt

    memo to PC socialists, racism is not what you say, it is what you do. he is an addict making a binge driven rant. Jew is a station of spirituality, not nationality and just because someone makes a comment it does not make the anti-anything. co-workers who are Jews and Muslims and Hindu’s and Buddhist’ walk around all the time “Jesus Christ” and swearing and they don’t say Oh Mohammad, or Oh Moses, or Oh Elephant god, or whatever. They are idiots, not racist. As is Sheen.

  • rannrann

    Charlie Sheeen? Why waste our precious time on discussing something he said. He’s a very sick individual who has been enabled by his show’s producers and creators along with the public who watched this weird sick dude every week for their sick entertainment.If the man he was talking about during his rant considers it an anti-semitic remark towards himself then so be it. You may not consider it anti-semite because he wasn’t talking about you. When someone uses his arrogant anger filled rant to call attention to your “hebrew name” when you do not go by that name on a daily basis then I think it fair to say that Charlie wasn’t using the term with affection but was indeed using it with an intended insult.Charlie Sheen claims there is nothing “wrong” with him when the whole world knows there is also nothing “right” with him either. In all seriousness when someone who is obviously as meantally ill as Charle Sheen and has held so much financial power and control over others’s lives then his illness makes for numerous problems and suffering for lots of innocent people in his circle. I sympathize with his family and his co-workers they have a big mess on their hands with Charlie Sheen’s illness tha has been allowed to go on to long.

  • jimy101

    tbarksdl: I think you said it eloquently about the double standards that exist in decency and respect for Americans in your statement. Charlie Sheen is not the only problem with television; its the vulgar content and disrepect that these shows broadcast; and the blame lies with the producers, writers, and tv networks who broadcast all this trash and vulgarity into our homes. Are these the kind of tv programs that Americans want to see and listen to? No, I don’t think so but the networks do.

  • sugarstreet

    “Mr Sheen might well benefit from a psychiatric evaluation and possibly medications. He and his family have my prayers and sympathy, but not my judgments.”Just my condemning him to brain disabling drugs.My hunch is that “Mr Sheen” is already on medications, that he is abusing them, along with alcohol and off-market drugs. The fact is recovery happens when people get off all market and non market drugs. He needs to get his life together, people need to tell him no (boundaries), and he needs to stay OUT of the shrink’s office. Is there a more useless profession?

  • praxitas

    it has been cast about with such reckless abandon that it has lost any meaning or power.

  • dnjake

    The simple reality is that Charlie Sheen is an alcoholic who is not prepared to accept his addiction. Alcoholism is a common problem that all large companies face. The standard practice is to fire anyone whose job performance is compromised by alcoholism. There does not appear to be any evidence that anti Semitism is a central part of Charlie Sheen’s life. His comments clearly did include the kind of ethnic slurs that our society no longer finds acceptable in the media. But those comments had nothing to do with why he was fired. The calculation simply involved the problems expected from him because of his addiction and the prospects for a show with a limited future in any case. The outcome was decision that it made business sense to CBS to part ways with an incorrigible alcoholic.

When he invited Minister Louis Farrakhan on his show he got tossed out on his keister so fast and you have really never heard from him again.

  • willythekorn

    As “lecole” points out, it would be easy to think Mr. Sheen is anti-semitic, since he went out of the way to make a point of Chuck Lorre’s religion when his religion wasn’t relevant. I don’t know or care if Sheen is actually anti-semitic, because his opinions are of no importance to me.The real anti-semites are the numerous commenters who seem to think Sheen was fired because he offended the “Jews that run Hollywood”. In fact, he was fired for: a) biting the hand that feeds him, which is a firing offense in most jobs, and; b) becoming a bad risk in an industry where engaging in risky business costs a great deal of money.

    This is a reach for the sake of some column inches. Is there anything shameful about a Jewish name? Of course not. But can a drunken oaf fling it as an insult, in hopes of passing a coded message and winking to other oafs who understand his meaning exactly?Of course. Charlie’s babble is identical to a redneck racist speaking in black dialect to drop a broad hint to other racists, who think they are cute and sly by using oblique references. They fool no one but themselves.

  • blasmaic

    The anti-defamation league in its statement did not address the fact that the dispute occured between two people who had both changed their names — Estevez and Levine. There’s also Sheen’s status as a known minority. Sheen may feel that airing a public dispute with an individual whose name does not reveal his own ethnicity could place Sheen in a position of wrongly receiving anti-Hispanic animus from the general public.Mostly, it looks like a pissing match between people enjoying the highest level of financial success and popular acclaim in their careers.

  • RufusTWashington

    But according to the NYTimes:

  • slim21

    It’s difficult to see this as anything other than Levine perceiving Sheen’s rant as a blasphemy on the “Chosen”. A sharp businessman, knowing that humans are attracted to both tragedy and farce like moths to a flame, would have anticipated profiting from a near certain increase in audience share.

  • jdbassjr1

    First comes PRIDE then the fall.All us drunks know that. Charlie just hasn’t figured it out yet. It is part of recovery.

  • Golem

    Anybody who thinks that Sheen’s use of Lorre’s hebrew name was not anti-semitic need only look at the comments below. In addition, there could be no possible reason for Sheen to use “Chaim” other than to appeal to his fellow anti-semites, e.g., Mel Gibson, while ranting about his excuses for the disaster he has made out of his life. Because of, among other things, their dedication to education, their basic intelligence, and, usually, their devotion to home and family, Jews are often succesful. Because, for whatever reason, certain non-Jews are suffering some set-back, those people become jealous of that success and strike out. A good example is Louis Farakhan. With his movement going basically nowhere all these years he came out with a book claiming Jews were behind the slave trade.Sheen’s remark was anti-semitic and, inasmuch as Jews, as a group, will continue to be successful, anti-semitism, which took something of a vacation after the holocaust, will continue to grow. That’s been the history for more than two thousand years.

  • jerkhoff

    Charlie Sheen is simply doing what every single one of us wishes he could do in a similar situation: have sex with loads of beautiful women and take all the drugs he wants to. We are all so envious of his lifestyle that we give 2-1/2 Men — basically a reality show about Charlie’s life — extremely high ratings. Without Mr. Sheen’s presence, this show would have been lost and forgotten centuries ago. And what almost destroyed the show last year was the writers’ pathetic attempt to try to turn Charlie into yet another henpecked husband — the type which exclusively populates every other sitcom on TV today. Did a single one of you hypocrites fail to cheer when the evil Chelsea finally read her last lines and walked off into the sunset?Methinks that almost all of the criticism of Mr. Sheen can be summarized in two words: sour grapes. If Charlie’s career in TV is really over (which is highly doubtful), I think that he would make an excellent successor to Hugh Hefner. Charlie, please keep on setting an example for the rest of us poor losers…

  • arancia12

    Charlie Sheen is an addict. He says he went through a self imposed rehab at his home and it’s possible he is no longer using.In one of his rants he said he was “high on life” and that no drug could give him that high. Either he’s Bi-Polar in manic phase or he has replaced his drug addiction with an addiction to the high people get from Adrenalin and Cortisol. These chemicals can be released when people get angry, as Sheen obviously is, and he is getting his fix from pure fury.The man is in deep trouble and doesn’t know it. He’ll relapse and it will be spectacular.

If being a sex addict were simply about money and power then the poor wouldn’t exhibit the same symptoms. I doubt Sheen is a sex addict but he is in fact a drug addict and often other addictions are comorbid or other behaviors are used to try and give up the primary addiction.

    Deluded? Yes. Inane? Yes. Deserving of instant firing? Definitely. But anti-semitic? No. Not in the slightest. Listen carefully and you will only hear an attempt to work in the most derisive sounds for his boss that can be composed by a master comic. It worked too. His boss canned him. Nothing there as far as dislike of Jewish people in general or any race.Put yourself in his place. Your boss has told you that your alcoholism and drug addiction are such problems that, if they are not corrected, you will be fired. You, being capable of curing your alcoholism in a nanosecond, with the help perhaps of Bree Olson, would assuredly be offended by someone telling you what to do about your personal life. And do take into account one telling remark he made–Mr. Lorre, to the best of anyone’s knowledge has never flown nor pretended to be an F18.

  • MoonDoggie

    What a waste of talent… Charlie Sheen is an excellent comic actor, but has embraced cocaine and alcohol to self medicate his bipolar affliction.Is he an anti-Semite? I do not know the man personally, but I would hope not. His father (I am sure) did not raise his son to be that small-minded and mean.)Here’s hoping that Charlie gets sober and stays that way. I think the show is funny – and a great way to relax and escape from the troubles of the nightly news!

    Isn’t it ironic that he’s calling out Mr. Levine /Lorre about his name change when he himself is actually named Carlos Estevez?

  • sugarstreet

    So what about those who behave like Charlie Sheen but don’t have money or power?If being a sex addict were simply about money and power then the poor wouldn’t exhibit the same symptoms.I doubt Sheen is a sex addict but he is in fact a drug addict and often other addictions are comorbid or other behaviors are used to try and give up the primary addiction.Please explain just what this “obvious solution” is.Posted by: arancia12 | February 26, 2011 2:55 PM1) I’m not going to explain the world’s problems. And I didn’t know that “the poor” in particular had a problem with sex addiction. How do I explain addiction? I don’t really. But if I spend 6 consecutive hours playing video games, I’m not going to run to my doctor to give me some ritalin because I think I have ADHD. Instead, I realize I was being a slug and allowed myself to be sucked into that automaton way of being, which after a while does become kind of addicting, no matter the person. To be happy or aware takes work and … awareness. Medicalizing everything is the bleakest way to live.2) “Obvious solution.” I should have hesitated before writing that. What I meant is that professions such as psychiatry take us away from solutions (work; awareness; discipline; love; freedom; choice) and push biologically determined reasons – you have a chemical imbalance and you will be on drugs for life.

    Calling someone by their legal birth name is anti-semetic? So am I anti-Spanish if I refer to Charlie Sheen by his legal birth name of Carlos Estevez?

  • esthermiriam

    As usual/often, Brad is very forgiving. That he has to be is part of the answer to the question, perhaps: Sheen’s variation on locker room language — one imagines the tone carries a lot — is only a small piece of his issues, but large enough.

  • jaypoynte

    Aside from the question ‘Is Charlie Sheen an Anti-Semite’…would someone please explain to me the reason Chaim Levine is using an alias? Could it be that ‘Chuck Lorre’ is ashamed of his heritage? Why would he need a ‘stage name’? I don’t know which is sadder..being prejudiced or being ashamed of who you are. Only these two men know the truth so don’t be so quick to label either.

  • nicekid

    Charlie Sheen strikes me as a deeply unhappy and disturbed man, but honest to Pete, I’m sick of hearing about him.All you need to get wall to wall media coverage is a higher level of obnoxiousness than anyone else. I’m tired of this bullsh!t.

  • markjay

    His birth name isn’t Chaim. His birth name is Charles. He has a Hebrew name, Chaim, though it’s doubtful he used that in daily life. It was apparently revealed on the show once.The poster who compared this to calling Pres. Obama “Hussein” or “Sotero” is right on target. It’s repeatedly calling somebody in a way that the person themselves does not ordinarily do, in order to emphasize and cast aspersion on an aspect of the person’s background. Perfectly clear that it’s anti-Semitic to me.That being said, the rest of Sheen’s rant is so objectionable (such as insulting the wives and children of people he worked for) that whether or not this is considered anti-Semitic is pretty irrelevant.

    Mr. Sheen has been “enabled” by CBS $$$$$his family, his wives (need child support) Classic case. One helps the addict by looking the other way. Money is Money. His family can go to court and get custody of him and put him in rehab- locked. He needs to continue making money to support his wives and children…so, now is the time…actually past time. CBS …should be ashamed…but big bucks talk!

    “Anyone who doesn’t think Sheen was Jew-baiting is asleep at the wheel. This is why the Repubs and Teabaggers love to refer to our President as Hussein.”———–Thank you, well said. Anti-semitism is perhaps too strong a term, but Sheen CLEARLY wanted to point out that Lorre was Jewish for some reason (including using the Hebrew “Chaim” rather than his given name “Charles”. And based on the rest of his rants it clearly wasn’t for a kind reason. Also, this column was a snoozer. Lots of navel-gazing.

  • CommonSenseDude

    I am not Jewish and have absolutely no tolerance of anti-Semetism or racism in any form. But when I heard that his usage of the guy’s birth name was deemed anti-semetism, I really got confused. What’s anti-semetic about using someone’s birth name? There is a lot of real anti-semetism in this world that needs to be conquered. There are neo-Nazi groups in the United States who hate Jewish people as well as many people all over the world who hate Israel. Trying to make the case that Sheen’s words were anti-Semetic only serves to take the attention away from and to minimize real anti-Semetism. Let’s focus on those real problems, not a crazy rant from a very sick man. By the way, I’m black and Charlie Sheen reportedly used the n-word during one of his hotel episodes. But even I don’t sit around fuming at Sheen and accusing him of being racist, even though he actually allegedly said the word. The man’s on crack or some serious combinations of all things illicit and he is out of his mind. We all have more serious problems in this world to worry about than the angry words of a very confused and sick man who does not seem to want to be helped.

  • grunk

    If you want to hear Jew haters, listen to the Southern Poverty Law Center rants.Sheen’s rant was that he’s made this guy and CBS a boatload of money. Lorre, CBS, and Hollywood have capitalized on, enabled, if not promoted Sheen’s bad boy image (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” – 1986). Now, when he goes even further down the road with this image, Lorre, CBS and Hollywood become self-righteous critics. He’s saying they are hypocrites.

  • bobtich

    Having lived 78 years in these United States as a Jew by birth with neither a typically Jewish name or face, I think that the default attitude of most non-Jewish americans has drifted away from being generally anti-semitic to mildly so for some , not at all for most. We Jews have developed,, not-unreasonably, very sensitive antennae. Even non-religious people, like me, are reminded of the Shoah on almost evry uptick of name-calling, terrorism, or unreasonable demands on Israel. Ethnic insults to Italians, Poles,Irish and African-Americans are not uncommon. Only the African-Americans have shared the tragedy of history as much as the Jews, although the others have been at one time or another under the heel of those who felt themselves superior.. Sheen is an addled scoundrel, blaming others for his faults. Time to just let it go.

  • klakey1

    I don’t know if Sheen is an anti-Semite, nor do I care much. He’s a screwed-up bum who should have been fired long, long ago, and although initially I was sorry for all those people who would lose their jobs if Sheen’s show were cancelled, now I don’t mind much. The show was trash, as Sheen is trash, so both he and the show should have been hosed off the air long ago. And those who were working on the show should find better, more honest work to do. If Sheen is anti-Semitic, well, that’s just another repulsive aspect of his polluted mind, isn’t it, another reason for him to sink into well-deserved oblivion. And the sooner the better.

    It suggests he make about 100 million too much to be labeled “CrackHead” but neverless a menace to society and an embarrassment to the Sheen/Estavez family. The boy needs help. All who knows him should stop enabling him before he ends up just as dead as Michael Jackson.

  • SCVoter

    There are some great actors/actresses on this show.For some time, they have been carrying the show despite Charlie Sheen.It is time to simply put another actor into Charlie Sheen’s job and make an announcement, “The Actor Charlie Harper is now being played by ___ ____.”Charlie Sheen is obviously high on drugs or alcohol, and anything he says should be taken with a grain of salt. If you have ever dealt with folks on drugs and alcohol, they should not be taken seriously. No one should be offended by anything he says as he is sick-sick-sick and not in his right mind.And some folks say drugs should be legalized – imagine the world full of Charlie Harpers and the media and other folks trying to analyze what they really meant when they said something.

  • vpucsekberman

    To deliberately point out and repeatedly use someone’s Jewish name is an act of contempt and given Sheen’s tone, it is hard to think that an element of anti-semitism isn’t at play. He is implying that Lorre is hiding his Jewishness. He is pointing out a perceived vulnerability and his purpose is hateful.

    Labeling Sheen’s words, anti-Semitic, is not absurd, it’s realistic. He is not scolding Lorre for changing his name; he is slapping a yellow star on Lorre’s lapel.

  • jd5024

    One man is Jewish, and changes his name to disguise that fact. The other man points it out.Which one is the anti-Semite?

  • zhnjg

    I caught this too, but I think I’m going to side with the author. Identifying someone as a Jew isn’t the same as hating them. His motive for identifying them was murky, and this article offers one that I hadn’t thought of. I think people should be more careful about throwing labels around, because it begets a sort of cynicism. For example, I suspect much of the unease around Obama’s fairly successful term in office is rooted in racism…but this goes largely unaddressed. For me, it represents an opportunity to confront the issue of race in American culture…and we’d rather throw the term “racist” at Mel Gibson. Gibson IS obviously quite racist, and that hardly even requires notice. Everyone agrees that kind of language is unacceptable. Why not turn the lens within, and look at the more subversive kind of racism/prejudice that permeates our public discourse? The same could be said in this situation, it seems…

  • micokc

    So tired of everyone labeling anything that is said about Jews, Judaism or Israel as anti-semitic. If it’s positive or negative, it’s deemed anti semitic if one of the three words is used. Get over yourselves! I think of the Washington City Paper and Dan snyder when i read some of these ridiculuous comments! You can’t compare charlie sheen to gibson or call the malibu house a nazi haven. It’s sickening that you want to cry if any of those three words are used in any sentence.

  • Farnaz2Mansouri21

    Thugs are thugs. Most of us have the misfortune of working primarily amidst Christians/Catholics, and almost always FOR same. Yes they are antisemitic, but they are also anti-MUslim, pro-white, in the main.R. Hirschfield, there is a way of dealing with them. I’ve been very successful with it. I give as good as I get. What does this mean? I respond to racists in racist terms.Not only has this stopped the thugs from acting thuggish with me at my place of employment, but it has stopped them from same with every other Jew.They are cowards, and they are weaklings. Glass jaws, R. Hirschfield. Remember that.I think you are being coy and disingenuous. I don’t see the point. As for Carlito Sheenzalez, I’m sure he’ll find employment with his co-Catholic Mexicanos. Perhaps, he could arrange to be on one of the stops arranged for the drug-carrying trains running from ole Mexico to L.A., the Gateway city.Buenos dias, Carlito. Don’t let the coke blow up in your face.

    The human brain’s capacity for self-delusion reaches its zenith in the comments on these pages by people who state that CBS’ decision to fire Charlie Sheen was simply a sound business judgment, and it had nothing to do with the power and position of Mr. Lorre (or whatever his name is). What palpable balderdash. Charlie Sheen’s life has been imploding in front of our eyes for months, if not years. Just in recent weeks, he trashed a hotel room, got involved in all sorts of public altercations, and openly and brazenly abused drugs and alcohol. His only bow to public outrage was to declare the transparent nonsense that he was going through a rehab program at his own home. Now, focus on this, all you apologists for Sheen and for CBS. Let me make a statement, and tell me whether you agree or disagree. Here is my statement:”One minute before Charlie Sheen gave the interview and made the statement that led to his firing, CBS executives and Mr. Lorre were aware of all the above antics by Charlie Sheen–and had made a firm decision to keep producing his program, with Sheen as its star.”Now, if you disagree with the above statement, please tell the rest of us where I went wrong.Because if you agree with the above statement–which is my understanding of the facts and reality–than you have to conclude that the one and only reason for Charlie Sheen’s dismissal and the cancellation of his show were his statements about Mr. Lorre. In short, it’s a pure lie to state that CBS fired Sheen because the network decided that the whole record of his problems made him a business risk. CBS fired Sheen solely because of his statements about Mr. Lorre. Which raises the logical question: What is so special about Mr. Lorre that would lead CBS to cancel a profit-making program just because Mr. Lorre got insulted–the same program that CBS continued to support without giving a damn about the abysmal behavior of its star?Look forward to the answers.

    david6384:Re: Your postFunny junkie MexiCatholic Carlos Estevez (his real name) went to far. His confirmation name may or may not be Ambirose–jes’ sayin’–but sure ’tis chico has a bit too much communion bubbly.What used to be called the “news” has been reporting ad infinitum on Carlito’s imminent downfall, and this rant, which covered more than antisemitism, included threats against the target, vilification of others, evidently done papi in for the season.Carlito had been in rehab since January, and evidently he’s a few snorts short of recovery. The first evidence is willingness to take responsibility for the harm you’ve done others. Pobrecito, on the other hand, continues to victimize all and sundry while claiming victimhood for his debauched self.As a Jew, it grieves me that he was not temporarily shoved aside for his racist rant; it appears that Pope Bennie’s crew can say what it wants, do what it wants, when it comes to us Jews (and altar boys).On the other hand, I commend CBS for its honesty, in not pulling an NPR, falsely claiming the high ground as NPR did with Juan Williams, a stance it had to back off from, since the tape reveals that Williams was, in fact, opposing racism.Funny, I didn’t see your hysterical self blogging here on behalf of Williams.But everybody knows the Christians stick together.This Jew, for one, wishes Estvez (Ambirose?) well. He is talented and needs help badly. He has embarrassed his family, friends, and colleagues, made a laughingstock of himself, a spectacle.He needs a few months of first-rate inpatient care, which he can well afford, perhaps in a wellness center.Word to the wise, Carlito: Don’t let them put your on the air Monday morning. Edit, man, edit. Ask them to let you come on live. You’ve said you frequently can’t stand up without leaning on furniture, so lean, but lean like a MAN. Apologize like a MAN. Be a man for once this sorry period, a man instead of a newt.

    JJ, I don’t know about “pride.” I’m of the Natalie Portman school, though. Smart, talented, beautiful, the lady says I’M JEWISH. All things considered, says she, I’d rather be in Israel.Way, Natalie, you go, girl. And keep right on going.My introverted genius of a gorgeous (but doesn’t know it) ten-year-old looks up to Portman, having read an article she wrote a while ago. First time Az has taken an interest in a contemporary figure. PRIDE. Having pride is different from having no shame, as is the case with Carlos (Ambirose?) Estevez, IMO.See ya, JJ.

  • Syllogizer

    Hirschfield no doubt expects his most central assumption to go unchallenged, but it is exactly that assumption I most take issue with. By no means is it true that “we should all feel good about living in a culture where charges like “anti-Semitic,” “racist” and “homophobic” are taken with increasing seriousness,”Rather we should “feel good” about that ONLY if “taking with increasing seriousness” does NOT turn into a witch hunt.Unfortunately, it already has. False accusations of ‘homophobic’ are notoriously common, for example, since it is the homosexuals themselves who raise that false accusation against anyone who does not approve of their corrupt, gross immorality.Has “anti-semitic’ also become a favorite accusation for those who want to run a witch-hunt? In some quarters, it already has. Fortunately, it is not as universal an excuse for witch hunts as the other accusation mentioned above.Is Hirschfield hailing from one of those quarters? Does he accuse the musicians who sang “Jewish American Princess” of anti-Semitism, too?

(Stop bomb-building for a moment, and look into food stamps–just in case.)MORE than anything, what shows your moral poverty IS YOUR FAILURE TO STAND UP AGAINST SHEEN’S BIGOTRY. MORE THAN ANYTHING.You and Areyousaying belong to one another. He will “protect” you, but remember this. White liberal racists like him feel superior to you. There here to “protect” your darky self. Assert your own superiority (and to him,you are superior), stand up for yourself, and he is gone. As a Nazi, you, I’m sure understand.

    No racism here, no sirreee…(I didn’t know Rabbis gave “special dispensation” like the Catholics from their warnings: “… that increasing seriousness also creates new levels of obligation regarding tossing such charges about too loosely. In fact, doing so will ultimately create a counter-trend in which those same charges will come to have little or no value at all. Think “the boy who cried wolf.’)You are in need of some serious psychiatric help, woman. To wit:”Except of course, when a Nazi Lutheran spews antisemitic vile (available on request) on this rabbi’s page as well as everywhere else.Like most Nazis, including Martin Luther (whose “The Jews and Their Lies) was a seminal text of the Reich, quoted by Hitler and the Sturmer), Luther this person’s hero, he gets his panties all in a twist when Jews stand up for their own selves. Gets irate when they give as good as they get from the likes of this creature.Better get used to it, Dik, for as long as you continue your racist, Nazi ways. For that long a time, for as long as you attempt to silence me and every Jew who speaks out against racism, who accepts her identity with pride, you will get as good as you give. And, in most cases, better.Jews are smarter than you. Much, much smarter. Not only morally superior than YOU, but smarter.Posted by: Farnaz2Mansouri21

    JJ, PRIDE! THINK NATALIE PORTMAN! Also, look at this thread, and see the scum that would deprive us of it.Take a shower after you come to this thread, and remember, even an amoeba would have pride when comparing itself to the racist scum that this blog occasionally attracts.Do like my beautiful, wiry ten-year-old, geenyoss, state and national prize winner, introvert–when they attack you with fists, put them in the hospital. With words, use words (we’ve always been better with things cognitive).Let the bastards to to hell. Let them die unshriven. Let them rot in their own hatred.See ya!

    Why blame anyone, Hirschfeld? Is not Obama doing your AIPAC bidding in Iraq and Afghanistan. Would he deserved the peace prize more if he nuked Iran for you? Or is it unfathomable to you that a “cushan” could receive such recognition? This article was unnecessary and reveals much about your bigotry and that of your people as well.Posted by: coloradodog | October 10, 2009 8:41 AMThe occasion for this one was R. Hirchfield’s questioning the Nobel Committee’s decision to award Obama the Nobel PRize. It had nothing to do with religion per or to wars, etc., but hear it is.At the same time R. Hirschfield’s essay appeared, Rev. Michael Kessler opposed the award in much stronger terms, arguing that Obama should have refused it.And from the multi-monikered skitzy bigot Areyousaying? Not a word.He is, of course, one of “God’s people,” a Lutheran (Google “The Jews and Their LIes” by Martin Luther), and we know well how Hitler used Lutheran writings.These texts were exported to the MIddle East and are largely responsible for what many Jews have suffered there. Compare Areyousaying’s post above to Azisk’s below.On the other hand, Areyousaying is an equal opportunity hater. He hates Catholics almost as much as Luther came to. Not for the same reasons as Muslims like Azisk do, but he hates.We hope, as we hope for Carlos Estevez, that he avails himself of inpatient care before it is too late.Hundreds more racist AReyousaying posts available on request.Get help, dude.

    Well, Farnaz1Mansouri22 (and Rabbi Hershfield) IMHO “On Faith” will soon end. The revolutions in North Africa are secular, not religious, sentiment towards Islam is hardening, and Israel is in real danger now, a danger not amenable to the usual “You are racist” “You are anti-semitic” charges. These are much debased in any case, due to over usage. The Boy who cried Wolf syndrome, I guess.But Farnaz, you really should stop. You are in no position to charge anyone with anything. To wit

    And finally–also to Farnaz:I stopped posting here three years ago although I look in occasionally. I will not post further. My intervention will probably prompt you to a frenzy of anti-Catholic ad hominems. In this RU-Saying will concur.So at least you will be in agreement in your anti-Catholic animosity. There. That’s good, isn’t it? You might not agree on Jews but your views coincide on Cathoics.This will be all from this one.

    Mary Cunningham, Fidor Defensor, long time! (Not laong enough, though, evidently, to heal your Jew-obsessed self).Unfortunately, you are living proof of the reality of Estevez’s anti-Jewish racism. What distinguishes him from you is that he is not anti-Latino, as well. For a minute, it occurred to me to pull up your famous “latino” quotation, but, unlike you, I do have a life beyond this little blob.Unfortunately for you, the allegations that I posted under different monikers was long ago disproved by Schaum, who also saw through you immediately to your unabiding hatred. And he, recall, was not alone.So, I shall not be bothered gathering up all your “Speed” missives, among so many others posted under pseudonyms. Will only note that psychopaths always accuse others of doing what they have done.Btw., you did not stop blogging here three years ago, despite endless threats (promises?) that you would, despite endless reminders from Schaum and Onofrio, et al, of said promises. No, like the proverbial bad penny, there ever and anon was racist you.The fact that you pull up a post by me to Azisk, without accompanying it by any of the endless antisemitic diatribes he penned, says much, btw., as well as to condemn what he and other of your co-bigots wrote on this thread. But not all. In your case, there isn’t enough to be said. I will say this on behalf of other bloggers. They did call Azisk on his bigotry, his way of expressing himself, as it were. But, alas, you never did. How could you? As I wrote, and, for future reference, you might memorize. This Jew gives as good as she gets. Deal with my identity respectfully, and that is how I will deal with yours. Otherwise, I will reply in terms understandable to any bigot.Allow me one further expression of interest in light of the context that you go after one of the few self-identified Jews, if not the only one, who rightly takes offense at this wretched Charlie Sheen, a co-religionist of yous. What other Catholics do on this thread, you,for obvious reasons, cannot.As noted before, I am so sorry that your pitiful life entails no more than reading this blog excessively and looking for word from moi.On the other hand, if it gives you something to do–obsess about me–then by all means, carry on.I, must, however, on behalf of the sane world depart with this from your typing today: “I will not post further.”Please.

  • Farnaz2Mansouri21

    Oh, and Mary Cunningham–Fidei Defensor,You don’t want to read all your past antisemitic rants, typed under your pseudonyms do you? Along with your famous “latino” [sic] pronouncement, perhaps?Those whom you aver do not post here any longer, but do, eg., DITLD and Persiflage, thoroughly decent sorts, will be reminded of your past err “unpleasantness.”So, dear, memorize your recent promise. That would be best:”I will not post further.”
