SAN FRANCISCO (Politically Illustrated) – Snickers, a chocolate bar made by Mars, ran a commercial during the Super Bowl with a notable Jewish comedian, Richard Lewis, transforming into some non-Jewish worker. Is the commercial "Logging" anti-semitic?
“Snickers picks two JEWISH [Roseanne Barr is Jewish? Hello! She's a ferocious anti-Semite!--VB] comedians and says, eat a Snickers and you transform from Jew to gentile,” Jason Rantz, a self-proclaimed activist out of Seattle, told Politically Illustrated. “What’s wrong with being a Jew?”
Mr. Rantz has started an online Facebook group called “Snickers Hates Jews,” denouncing the Super Bowl advertisement.
The commercial shows a non-Jewish worker asking Richard Lewis to cut some lumber and eat a Snickers.
“I’m just not feeling the wood cutting thing today,” said Mr. Lewis. “What is the rush here? Is there a worldwide shortage of gazebos?”
The non-Jewish worker added, “Here Tony, eat a Snickers. You get a little whiny when you’re hungry.”
Mr. Lewis eats the Snickers bar and transforms into an ordinary logger.
Are Jews whiny?

Lighten up, it's a freaking commercial, and if Snickers wanted to single out Jews they could have selected other performers, like Jerry Seinfeld or Adam Sandler.
Personally, my favorite Snickers commercial is this one starring Mr. T.
