Romania TV Airs Anti-Semitic Carol

A Romanian public broadcaster for rural communities aired a Christmas carol on December 5 which featured extremely offensive lyrics about Jews. The song, sung by the Dor Transilvan ensemble, had lyrics including, “The kikes, damn kikes, Holy God would not leave the kike alive, neither in heaven nor on earth, only in the chimney as smoke, this is what the kike is good for, to make kike smoke through the chimney on the street.” TVR3, Romania’s public broadcaster called the carol, “an uninspired choice,” and said it did not select the carol, placing blame on the Cluj County Council.
