What's Sauce for the Jew is Sauce for the Shikse

James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal's Opinion Journal has taken note of an official Jew's befuddlement over L'affaire Shikse (h/t BCF). Opines Taranto:
But can Farber argue with a straight face that an act of vandalism is a hate crime if it's motivated by disapproval of non-Jews' dating Jews but not if it's motivated by disapproval of Jews' dating non-Jews? "The shikse incident" makes hate-crime laws look absurd either way.
Not only can he argue it with a straight face, he is arguing it with a straight face. Which I must say has blasted the silliness into the stratosphere.

His face is straight. His tee was gay.

If the story is being picked by The Wall Street Journal, Bernie definitely has a SHIKSAGATE on his hands.

He's been acting like a Bubble Boy for way tooo long.

Memo to Bernie:
Zip-up and stop masturbating so much when you're at the office.

I understood this quite simply that under Canada's hate laws a victim group was identified very specifically. "Non-Jewish shiksa, Nazi , etc" just didnt meet the legal test. Why is this being conflated into something else?
