Ashkenazi Jews might have a marginal advantage over their gentile peers when it comes to thinking better. Where their advantage more often lies is in thinking different.Seriously, between Brett Stephens and Bari Weiss, I'm beginning to wonder if the Times Editorial Page Editor James Bennet is literally trying to find the most contemptible Jews possible to become regular columnists.
Seriously, as a human being and an American, I find Stephens an embarrassment, and as a Jew, I find him a Shanda fur die Goyim.*
*Yiddish for a, "Shame before the nations," meaning that this person is an embarrassment to the whole Jewish people.
