On the eve of the release of Universal’s “Steve Jobs,” star Seth Rogen fired off a hate-tweet at black Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson. “Fuck you @realBenCarson,” the tweet said. In another tweet, Rogen, a high-profile Hillary Clinton supporter (and Canadian citizen), expressed his anger over comments Carson made about gun control and Nazi Germany.

Carson believes Jews might have had a better chance at resisting the Nazi regime had they not been disarmed by that regime in advance. Rogen, who is Jewish, and much of the national media are horrified over the idea of Jews with guns fighting Nazis, something Jews did frequently throughout WWII with scrounged guns.

Whether it is kids in classrooms or Jews in Nazi Germany, Carson proved this week that if you want to enrage a Leftist, suggest that they might have been better off had they been in a position to fight back.

The social media backlash against both Rogen and his upcoming film was immediate, and some 12 hours later, even though it is very early in the morning, is still intense.

A search of tweets containing only Seth Rogen’s names finds that almost all of them are critical of the comedian’s attack on Carson, many accusing Rogen of outright racism. The venomous, dehumanizing  attacks black conservatives face from leftists like Rogen have been well-documented going back to Clarence Thomas.

— Some are calling for a boycott of Rogen’s movies, which has to be troubling for Universal. Between promotion and the production, the studio probably has $70 to $80 million invested in “Steve Jobs.” The high-profile biopic is also the studio’s big Oscar entry this year. —

A Twitter word search of “Rogen” and “boycott’ resulted in 22 hits in just the last hour.

Fueling the idea that Rogen is driven by race is this clip (courtesy of the Daily Caller) of Rogen championing Jews fighting back in the movie that made him a star, “Knocked Up.”
