I was reading Slavoj
Zizek's book, Sublime Object of Ideology.
In it, he tells a joke.
A Jew and a Pole are traveling on a
train. The Pole badgers the Jew to reveal the secret to Jewish wealth. The Jew
plays the Pole for a fool. … The joke is coercive. It makes me think of the Jew
as clever and the Pole as obnoxious, loud, and stupid enough to get duped.
Informant was a 26-year-old, American, male
graduate student, neither Polish nor Jewish
Slavoj Zizek is a superstar academic who self-identifies as a Communist. See here. A screencap of the page featuring the joke is below.
