"Jews are never portrayed as cheap, arrogant or shady business dealers. "
I'm sure that breaks your heart. But if you'd like to see negative stereotyped depictions of Jews, you can tune into Two Broke Girls. Or The Good Wife. Or LA LAw. Or countless other shows. Just not every week, so you may have missed them.
Your problem, Herm, is that you think all the libels and stereotypes about Jews are sefl-evidently and universally true, so when more rational people don't go around spouting them, you assume they must either be duped, paid off or intimidated. Tell me, did Jews pay off Clement VI or did they intimidate him into saying that Jews did not cause the Black Death?
