Default Can't Say Jewfish?

I recently put a picture of a 350 pound jewfish I had caught years ago up on Facebook.

Some people said I should not of mentioned the name of the fish, politically not correct.

Are we not saying jewfish anymore? I caught a giant grouper instead?

After all,there is a creek in FL by that name.

We just live in a really soft world right now where just about everything "hurts peoples feelings" and "offends people because it is not PC".

Not sure who's idea it was but I will say this, Must have been a slow day at the office if thats what they came up with. Personally If someone is offended by the name Jewfish then they should move to an island so they dont infect the rest of us.

Jewfish.....notice any FL crackers saying "Goliath grouper"? Ever?
I refuse to do it.
It is 100% unreasonable for anyone to take offense to get mad at the name of a damn grouper.
Oh, and its "Merry Christmas" too, and I'm no Bible thumper either.

Sadly this is so true. This country doesn't have the backbone it use to.

If That had been me you could not have done anything short of tossing me out of the bank that would have kept me from speaking my mind.

Jews are Jews. Their customs are Jewish. The religion is Judaism, but the term Jude is not commonly used in English, as it's the German word for Jew. Their own Anti-Defamation League, on it's website, says that it's purpose is "The mission of the Anti-Defamation League is to stop the defamation of the Jewish people, to secure justice and fair treatment to all citizens alike."

What I am saying is that the word "Jew" is honorable, and correct. It is not an insult, like several other words. Someone who gets their panties in a twist from hearing that is trying way overhard to prove how PC they are. Actually, they are ignorant and illiterate. Not to be too niggardly with my insults.
