Charlie Sheen: I'm Not an Anti-Semite

2/25/2011 1:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen tells TMZ ... the reports describing him as an anti-Semite are B.S.

Charlie Sheen Chuck Lorre

While Charlie spilled his guts to TMZ yesterday about his hatred for Chuck Lorre, he referred to the "Two and a Half Men" creator as Chaim Levine -- the Hebrew translation of CL's birth name -- which many people felt Charlie used in a mean-spirited attempt to denigrate the Jews.

Now Charlie tells TMZ ... "I was referring to Chuck by his real name, because I wanted to address the man, not the bulls**t TV persona."

FYI -- Chuck's birth name is Charles Levine ... and his Hebrew name is Chaim.

Charlie added, "So you're telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?"

Charlie Sheen is a MONSTER! He is criminally insane, obviously!


His abuse can NOT be tolerated any longer! He is unsafe and is a menace to all of society!

I'm so surprised that anyone ever hired him in the first place...nut-case!


Beware: Red Flag: Charlie Sheen: SCARY!!

Now that he doesn't have to stay sober for the show, what are
the odds that he will this weekend? REally, I want to know
what you all think. I say 87% chance he does NOT.

How do YOU know what it says on his birth certificate?

Do you know what the Rabbi called "Chuck" on Hebrew school?

If Charlie is an anti Semite for calling someone by their Hebrew name, doesn't that mean someone who 'white washes' their name so to speak is a self hating Jew?

When I read people calling Charlie a racist, I listened to the audio and heard him call Lorre, "Hymie" and just assumed that that was derogatory.

Now I read that that is the Hebrew pronunciation of the original Jewish first name of "Chuck" Lorre.

Sheen does have a point. Misguided and manic as his rant may be.

One mouth hug from a Jewish smut slut and Charlie would clean up his act. Spit or swallow? Drip or drool? Gag or gargle? Foam or felch? Burp or blow bubbles? Oy!

He keeps tap dancing, but falls down more each time.
It you were honest CARLOS, you would have signed your letter Carlos Estevez.
You maybe manic and high as a kite, but that does not make us stupid.
It sounded mean-spiritied, it WAS mean-spirited. Gosh, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it is a...anti-Semite.

Have ya'll ever heard the childhood story called "The Boy That Cried Anti-Semite"?

Let me give you the cliff notes version:

Once upon a time, a man at the low-point in his life was troubled and haunted with drug addiction. His demons affected his work and culminated in a public radio rant.

He called his Jewish boss by his real name, and a little Jewish boy who heard the rant took a big sip from his staw and yelled, "Anti-semite!"

Interestingly enough, this man in much need of help also made other bigotted statements such as "Vatican assassins!" (the radio host also giggled and repeated this bigotted statement) and "Bible grabbers!" The Jewish boy said NOTHING of these authentically anti-Christian and anti-Catholic bigotted statements. Not a peep came from him; He only yelled the louder, "You called the boss by his real name...you anti-semite!"
___________

Fast forward:

One day, the little Jewish boy actually heard a clearly anti-semetic statement and yelled, "Anti-semite!".........but nobody paid attention or listened to him. He tried and tried to convince others that he had witenessed an anti-semtic slur. But, as before, he was shrugged off and ignored.

You see, poor little Harvey had lost his credibility in two important ways with his past accusations:

1. Incorrectly calling someone an anti-semite for addressing someone by the name his Jewish parents had given the individual.

2. Saying absolutely nothing about outright bigotted statements against Catholics and Christians (i.e., hypocrite).

Poor Harvey from TMZ had lost all of his credibility. No one believed the shmuck anymore..............over time, he learned to cope with his lack of credibility by playing his favorite game, "Jew or not a Jew."

THE END
