By Tim Baffoe-
(CBS) Ryan Braun is a bad guy. Nobody except Front Row Amy really debates that. But essentially why?
Is it because he further tarnished the purity of America’s pastime? Because he shattered the trust of so many of his fans? Stepped on others to try to succeed?
Is it just his massively brutal fashion line?
None of those things really. No, Twitter intelligentsia is happy to let you know that Braun is to be hated and did these awful things because he’s Jewish! Ah, sweet bigotry. We can always count on you to make complicated things so much more ignorantly simple before we attempt to seduce a cousin.
You know the drill. On to the shaming.
Ryan Braun. Jew— AL HORFORD IS SCUM (@Kinga310) July 23, 2013
Something tells me that feeling the need to include a dollar symbol in your fake name means you don’t make many dollars. Probably a Jew’s fault, though, right?
Peeps are going in on Ryan Braun being a Jew, but #RealTalk, Bernie Madoff is worse since he stole peoples' money.— Duke (@authenticduke) July 24, 2013
I mean, yeah, let’s look at this from a perspective of the largest investment scandal in American history. Or what about Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, huh? That wasn’t good. Now the Braun stuff isn’t so bad, is it?
I knew Braun had to be a cheater. No Jew is that good at baseball. #jewsandsportsdontmix— John Kilcoyne (@jkilcoyne7593) July 23, 2013
What mixes far better with sports is ignorant bros. Merica.https://twitter.com/_fidelcashflo/status/359470888028078080
I was going to get mad at that, but this guy seems like he’s probably a credible doctor.https://twitter.com/_fidelcashflo/status/359837381710450688 https://twitter.com/samaral02/status/359440868467408896
Doesn't surprise me Ryan Braun took steroids. No Jew is that good at sports— Nathan Vanderschaaf (@NastyNate_888) July 22, 2013
There is a Ron Paul I Phone case— Nathan Vanderschaaf (@NastyNate_888) June 6, 2013
Wait, wait. He cited Urban Dictionary, though.https://twitter.com/yaboycmillz/status/359743183812431874
As an English teacher I have to accept his formal referencing.
Everyone is losing track of the facts. Ryan Braun is Jewish. #doublewhammy— Siggs (@BigDaddySiggs) July 24, 2013
Please stop losing track of double-whammy-worthy facts, people. This is why we can’t have productive discussions.
did anyone really think a jew was that good at sports??? of course Braun cheated— Michael Mc (@irishrebel311) July 23, 2013
lol Ryan Braun is NOT giving back his MVP award, name me one time a jew gave something up willingly— Michael Mc (@irishrebel311) July 23, 2013

And Huffington Post shared a few tweets from terrible people, many of which have since been deleted (but the text of them lives there forever), including one from @Just_In_Time618, who decided he should delete his stupidity while still telling HuffPo to suck something:https://twitter.com/Just_In_Time618/status/359669216036659200
…and retweeted this:

Typical sneaky Jews these days— Vic (@vickilehrer) July 23, 2013
Looking at his timeline you’ll see a few homophobic tweets regarding Braun, too. By the way, here are Justin Spisto’s high school hoops stats.
Now let’s sit back and wait for the same anti-Semitic heat to be put on Alex Rodriguez once he’s suspended. Mazel tov, y’all.
