Hey, E.R., "retard" was a funny word in 1960, and it's still a funny word in 2013. Keep your PC nonsense to yourself.
Sarah, that's all fine and dandy, but like 100% of Merle's supporters, when you're called out on it, you can't come up with any facts to refute it. Instead, it's all a "witch hunt."
And within the context of that paragraph, there was only "anti-semitism" in much the same way that Al Sharpton would cry "racism" if he found a black peanut in a box of Cracker Jack.
Route66, thanks for your Amazing Kreskin impression, but I am Jewish. Kosher for Passover. Burying plates and silverware in the backyard when mixing milk and meat. The whole kit and kaboodle.
When a Jew plays the Jew card in a story about corruption that has not even the slightest "anti-Semitic tinges," I have a problem with it. I can't stand shills and homers in the first place, but that ups it 10 notches.
I also have a problem with Internet goofs that raise the word "Hitler" where it doesn't belong. I'm not talking about her, so I'm probably talking about you. If you're going to post, how 'bout leaving the idiocy behind.
The Church of Inaccurate & Made Up Facts.
I was wondering when the first person was going to play the anti-semitic card. And we have a winner! Susan Schwartz, come on down!
You curiously neglected to identify the specific "anti-Semitic tinges." You also curiously neglected to identify the specific facts that make it a "modern witch hunt." Were the witches in Salem buying themselves Harleys and $43,000 cars on the Pilgrims' dime like Merle does? You might want to choose another analogy.
There is absolutely nothing in the story that is not true, with the exception of an off-the-cuff remark not integral to the story, about some ritzy commercial properties bringing in loads of tax dollars to Beachwood. Beachwood Place indeed does, but Legacy Village doesn't, since it's not located in Beachwood.
But the rest of the story is 100% true, and it's absolutely disgusting. And since you brought up the imaginary "anti-Semitic tinges," it's guys like Gorden that make me embarrassed and ashamed to be Jewish.
It's kind of tough to argue against a stereotype of Jews being bloodsuckers when there's one doing his vampire act in broad daylight, and doesn't give a rat's ass if anybody can see it. Why doesn't he give a rat's ass? Because of brainwashed enablers like you, Susan Schwartz. And conspirators and partners in crime like those at the Cleveland Jewish News.
Hopefully somebody soon will demand the Ohio Ethics Commission, or a prosecutor somewhere, will bring this guy down, because the voters of Beachwood appear to be too apathetic and stupid to do it themselves.
If that greaseball Haslam rips off and cheats those wiener dogs out of their Alpo rebates, there will be hell to pay.
This guy is such a self-promoting, self-aggrandizing, self-serving a-hole.
If he wants to show up at Cavaliers games, then tell him to sit in the crappy seats where the regular people sit and to pay for it, instead of telling his business manager to get free courtside seats so he can be seen in all his ugly glory.
The last time I saw him at a Cavaliers game, he was wearing a Daniel Gibson jersey. What kind of self-promoting moron decides it's a brilliant idea to show up just so he can be seen while wearing the jersey of the worst player on the team.
Somebody should ask his new wife if he got burned as badly and as often on his honeymoon as badly and as often as he gets burned by wide receivers.
