Senator Places Add Artificially Enlarging Nose Of Jewish Opponent; ‘Blatant Antisemitism’

21

ATLANTA,GEORGIA (VINnews) — Senator David Perdue who is running to retain his seat in Georgia, placed an attacking add in which he accused his opponent, Jon Ossoff, of trying to “buy Georgia.” However Perdue was forced to delete the add immediately since it artificially enlarged the nose of his Jewish opponent.

The add used an old Reuters image of Ossoff from 2017 but according to three graphic design experts who spoke with the Forward, it lengthened and widened his nose, even as other parts of his face stayed the same size and proportions.

In response, the Perdue campaign claimed that the distortion of Ossoff was a mistake and would be removed from Facebook where it was posted.

A Perdue campaign statement said that “In the graphic design process handled by an outside vendor, the photo was resized and a filter was applied, which appears to have caused an unintentional error that distorted the image. Obviously, this was accidental, but to ensure there is absolutely no confusion, we have immediately removed the image from Facebook. Anybody who implies that this was anything other than an inadvertent error is intentionally misrepresenting Senator Perdue’s strong and consistent record of standing firmly against anti-Semitism and all forms of hate.”

Ossoff was not mollified by the explanation and wrote on Twitter that  “Sitting U.S. Senator David Perdue’s digital attack ad distorted my face to enlarge and extend my nose. I’m Jewish. This is the oldest, most obvious, least original anti-Semitic trope in history. Senator, literally no one believes your excuses.” Ossoff demanded that Perdue apologize for the “blatantly antisemitic” ad.

Dov Wilker,  the head of the AJC’s Atlanta office, wrote that “We were shocked to see Senator Perdue’s add and to learn that Jon Ossoff’s nose had been altered. This along with the reference to a Jewish senator and reference to “buying Georgia” evokes antisemitic imagery that is best confined to the dustbin of history. We call upon the Senator to apologize and would be happy to meet with him and his staff to discuss antisemitism as it continues its steady rise at home and abroad.”

  1. This article makes me embarrassed to be a Jew. If Jon Ossof has nothing better to offer as a candidate than claims of victimhood, maybe he shouldn’t be running. We Jews are bigger than that. But at least he knows the difference between “Ad” and “Add”, which the editor of this article apparently does not!

  2. We’ve seen this type of subtle and blatant anti-semitism before. 1982, following Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, scores of newspapers in the USA, ran very anti-semitic caricatures of Menachem Begin, showing a Jew with a long hook nose, and a Star of David. These momzarim, despite their phony denials, know exactly what they are doing.

  3. Apparently the Jews who responded to this article are so downgraded and debased that they make excuses for blatant antisemitism by this GOP bigot. The dictionary definition of self-hating Jews. What next? Will they put on a swastika face mask in Walmart to prove how much they love Trump?

    • You are the self hating Jew who support the democrats who support and defend rabid Jew haters. Your beloved Tehran Nancy endorsed the rabid Jew hater Omar.

    • No, they have a sense of perspective, unlike you, and realize that there’s a world of difference between a caricature that deliberately makes the nose much bigger all out of proportion, and this, where a couple of pixels are added at the end while a picture is cropped from its background.

      You want to talk about anti-Semitism and self-hating Jews and so forth? There’s plenty of actual examples on the Democrat side, including Antifa and BLM defacing shuls and destroying Jewish businesses in LA, Democrat politicians kissing up to Al Sharpton (who has actual Jewish blood on his hands), Ilhan Omar mentioning only her opponent’s Jewish donors, she and the rest of “the Squad” supporting the Palestinians, and much much else. But you don’t really care, because it’s not anti-Semitism that concerns you at all, but rather blind hatred for Trump and for your fellow frum Jews who support him.

  4. You’ve been here and on other sites snce your bar mitzvah_ you keep referring to Trump as a bigot.
    Now finally , alter kocker _ prove it already !!

  5. This is blatant anti-Semitism and lying on top of it. You cannot resize a photo with only the the nose having changed dimensions and not the rest of the face. Ridiculous.

  6. The size of the nose is so slight that only those who have hate in their heads and heart will see that on others.

    If you have worked with pictures on computers you know that computer formats distort. Much ado about nothing. And if you think the size of a nose (especially since there are no other distortions) makes a Jew then your Yiddishkeit is worth gurnisht.

  7. keep on repeating your fantasies…how come no one has ever seen an ANTIFA member?…they simply do not exist…as to my hatred of Trump?….absolutely and I’m proud of it….as to his Frum supporters?…I feel badly for them…they are generally ignorant, closeminded, uneducated and pressured to conform to whatever their corrupt leadership decrees…as can be seen from posts here… just look at any post from Archie…you are one of the few who can string together coherent English sentences even though your views are misguided

    • “No one has ever seen an ANTIFA member…they simply do not exist”

      Well, sure, if every time a video of them comes out (and there are plenty) you put your hands over your eyes and chant “la-la-la-la,” then you won’t see them. That’s the kind of thing that shows a person to be “ignorant, closeminded,” etc. – not the kind of English they use. (I wonder, in your career as a lawyer, whether you tried the same kind of thing, ignoring evidence that doesn’t fit your predilections, and if so, how often you got sued for malpractice.)

      Oh, and funny that you don’t mention anything about the incoherent English used by posters on your side of things, like the one always nattering on about “trumpf” and “1933” and so forth. Do you “feel badly” for him too, or does he get a pass because, like you, hate for Trump is his lodestar?
