Episode #157: National Front vs. Alt-Right

The smoke has cleared everywhere but in the Twilight Lounge this week, as the boys heat up a cool 53-degree night when Rosen’s seemingly innocuous question about the National Front explodes into a fiery debate about the role and power of the alt-right in present-day America. Fear not, though, fans of a lighter (Is it) Good for the Jews? It takes a half-hour of discussions about brazen junkies, Joe’s of Westlake, Paul Kantner sightings and David Brenner (plus your weekly Omri Casspi update) to get to this point, plus a pointed question:

Is an off-duty female IDF soldier with ninja moves good for the Jews?

It’s not much, but it’s all we’ve got. Off-duty Isreali soldier Nomi Golan took it to a mob of protesting ultra-Orthodox Jews the other day, unveiling a series of kicks and karate chops at a horrified group of black-clad protesters.

Omri in happier times.
