Mila Kunis Targeted By Anti-Semitic Ukrainian Politician

Mila Kunis Targeted Anti-Semitic Slur

Mila Kunis was targeted by a Ukrainian politician who called her an anti-Semitic slur during a Facebook rant.

The slur, “zhydovka,” has been used in the Ukraine as a slur against Jewish people ever since the Holocaust ended, reports TMZ.

Kunis was born in the Ukraine and is Jewish. The rant by the politician, Igor Miroshnichenko, has caused Jewish organizations around the world to be furious with the Ukrainian government.

There have been several protests by Ukrainian Jews, especially after the Ukrainian government announced the word was okay to use when speaking about Jews because it appears in the Ukrainian dictionary as a term for the people that isn’t exactly a slur.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles has now entered into the fray over the politician targeting Mila Kunis. The Center sent a letter to the Ukraine’s prime minister, to “express our outrage and indignation against the slanders of the Svoboda Party directed against the Jewish community in the Ukraine.”

The Ukrainian term essentially translates into “dirty Jewess” and is essentially a derogatory term against the people, notes MSN Entertainment. Mila Kunis recently spoke out about her early childhood and growing up in the Ukraine, saying:

“My whole family was in the Holocaust. My grandparents passed and not many survived. After the Holocaust, in Russia you were not allowed to be religious. So my parents raised me to know I was Jewish. You know who you are inside. When I was in school you would still see anti-Semitic signs.”

Mila Kunis’ parents moved her and her brother to the US when the actress was seven.

    I think people need a little context here. Rants about "Jews" in the Ukraine come about due to the fact that after WW2 Stalin sent his Jewish henchmen to the Ukraine to "ethnically cleanse" the entire country of Ukrainians. We are CONSTANTLY reminded of what a monster Hitler was for his sponsored slaughter of Jews in Germany and Eastern Europe, while virtually nothing has been or ever gets said about Stalin's systematic killing of more than 10 million Ukrainians during the few years following the end of WW2. This is something the international community fails to acknowledge in the same way they fail to acknowledge to genocide of Armenians by the Turks. We are rather selective in our outrage over genocides. For a country the size and populace of the Ukraine, losing millions of people, who were done so through forced labor and starvation, it became something imprinted on the collective consciousness of all those who survived. If a group were responsible for the death of a large portion of our population, if during the process of "ethnic cleansing" our population was reduce to almost nothing, then we might also carry a wary and prejudiced attitude about this group. For Ukrainians it is just as hard to forget what Stalin's Jewish henchmen did to them as it is for the Jews to forget what Hitler did to their populace. Stalin's Jewish proxy rulers methodically and very deliberately engaged in a program of working and staving the people of the Ukraine almost to the point of extinction. People are ignorant of the the fact that Ukrainians are NOT Russians and they are for the most part Orthodox Christians. This too was another reason Stalin sent a contingent of Jews to take care of annihilating the Christian populace of the Ukraine. Stalin, by the way was Catholic from Georgia (and his mother was secretly Jewish by descent). There is long tradition of animosity between the Russians and the Ukraine, with Kiev, at one point being the Capital of the Russian Empire. Stalin's program to purge a whole country of its populace was, in its application and process, every bit as evil as anything Hitler did, and the perpetrators of THIS genocide were Jews of admitted ethnic background. Little did Stalin's Jewish henchmen surmise that after they did such a stellar job in the Ukraine, that THEY would be the next target for his process of pogrom and used as the rally point for Christians in Russia to rid the country of what he considered a threat to his stranglehold on power in the USSR. A rant against Ms. Kunis is really not about her; she is just a famous former Ukrainian who represents a path to be heard by politicians there to garner support for their election or re-election. Politics is very rough and tumble in the Ukraine and the battle for dominance between the Ukrainians, who see themselves as more a part of Europe and the Russian influenced eastern part of the country, that wants to stay within the Russian sphere of influence, continues apace and with fervor.The Ukraine is divided along these lines and the locals are very touchy when it comes to being dominated by Russian influence as they remember what Russia did to them all during the 20th century and especially what the Jews Stalin sent did in the years after WW2. So if we are going to side with of Jewish sensibilities with regard to what Hitler did to them in WW2, we should also recognize the role of those of Jewish descent who perpetrated genocide on the people of the Ukraine and condemn BOTH genocides as crimes against humanity and to understand just WHY this attitude exists in the Ukraine against this particular ethnic group. They have their reasons, and they are just as valid, in their eyes, as how the Jews feel about Hitler and Germany in general during and after WW2.

    Why are all these people, Russia has no exceptions, always trying to downgrade other ethnic's or nationalities to make themselves seem so humanely correct. Then when other countries officials call them out on their silly little statements or actions; they get offended. Hey Mila, through the years I honestly believe that it is jealousy or envy.

    The remark came from a politician. They are just used car salesmen, who in theory represent their people. You can't really value any racist comment they make, but they need to be held to a much higher standard.
