Jews in Showbiz

Sent to us by media personality Steve M, who now understands why he never made it that big, even with a Jewish co-host

 

Years ago, the Jewish Hollywood moguls decided that it would help them make more money if the general public viewed films as being "Christian." In fact, they as well wanted to blend in with the Gentile community. Thus Samuel Goldfish changed his name to Goldwyn and Cecil B. de Mille insisted that he was a Gentile until his death when a Rabbi officiated at his funeral. Every single one of the original Jewish developers of the movie industry enumerated here divorced their Jewish wives and married beautiful Christian starlets: Louis B. Mayer,Samuel Goldwyn, Jack Warner, David O. Selznick and Harry Cohen. They also gave orders to numerous Jewish "movie stars" to change their Jewish names to Christian sounding ones and for many male and female "movie stars" to undergo "nose jobs." Here are but a few who followed this road to stardom:
