Last week, the Washington Post published an op-ed entitled, “I am tired of being a Jewish man’s rebellion,” where the author explains she is done dating Jewish men. We’ll spare you the rest of the essay that critiqued Jewish moms and made an idiotic joke about bacon (read if you wish), but we’re here with the best jokes about the essay.
1. The Jewish mothers always win
The jewish mothers of that WaPo girl's ex-boyfriends are laughing their heads off right now

2. Suspicious timing
I think WaPo thought we wouldn't notice because this is Jewish school spring break week, or that we were too constipated to notice?

3. Truly terrible timing
The real moral of that essay is not to piss off the media Jewesses of Twitter three days after we’ve seen our extended families and eaten a lot of constipating food.

4. Ah, yes the Jewish media
I for one, am relieved that The Israelite's LUST for the Willowy Shiksa is finally being EXPOSED, no thanks to (((the media))) https://t.co/iZKjCbyLJM

5. Carrie Bradshaw-esque
“I couldn’t help but wonder: was I a shiksa? Or a shiks-nah?”

6. A simpler time
today, when we're upset about snow and a super-dumb personal essay feels so Obama-era.

7. Just go to Christian Mingle
i love for my religion and culture to be maligned by some shiksa salty about her failed relationships. go on christian mingle b!!!!

8. Some food for thought
hey @washingtonpost, if you can literally substitute a headline of one of your articles with "why I don't date Jews anymore" maybe you SHOULDN'T PUBLISH IT. thanks!

11. WASP tears

12. Why publish it in the Jewish media??
what I don't understand is why a freelance writer who clearly believes the Jews control the media would decide to announce in the Washington Post that she sould like to be placed on the shitlist of all the media Jews

This is…uh….a lot of words to say you won’t date Jewish guys @CareyPurcell. Thanks for the warning for all Jews to stay clear of you tho. Really don’t understand why any editor would publish this antisemitic narishkeit https://t.co/3ccgh8fijy

19. The tiniest fiddler
Anyway, @CareyPurcell, I am sorry you had trouble dating Jewish men. I bet the world‘s tiniest fiddler on the world‘s tiniest roof is playing for you.

20. Blame the Elders
.@CareyPurcell boldly declared: It's not me, it was the protocols of the elders of Zion. https://t.co/N1cYKiwgJZ

21. Christmas tree-scented vagina
I'm sorry I'm sorry I should stop but I truly cannot get over the fact that this writer truly seems to believe her christmas-tree-scented vagina is a magnetar-level attractant for all nearby circumcised penises
— your friend Helen (@hels) April 2, 2018
But all joking aside, as Sophie Ellman-Golan points out, the essay was super problematic.
At a time when antisemitism is on the rise, I'm struggling to fathom why someone would feel compelled to write an OpEd using her 2 breakups with Jewish men to make sweeping assertions about Jewish communities and promote negative stereotypes about us.
I just don't get it.

Not okay, Washington Post.
