The Kosher Scam
Kosher: Another Religious Rip-Off!
by Bob Johnson
Organized religions rip people off. For example, they don’t have to pay property taxes yet they enjoy all the benefits of police and fire protection. Even the “faith-healers” can call 911 for a paramedic!
One big religious rip off that is taking place, in addition to the above travesty of justice, is the kosher rip off. This scam is paid for by unaware consumers who haven’t been warned about the rabbinical rip off!
The way the kosher scam works is a group of rabbis sell the “right” to a company to display their particular kosher marking. (The two primary kosher symbols are shown below. Check your kitchen for these labels on your food products to see if you’ve been taken. The symbols are usually small and sometimes hard to locate. I bet everyone will find more than one food product in their kitchen that is part of this religious scam. Even some non-food items are certified kosher by these greedy charlatans! For example, check your Reynolds Wrap if you have it. Also, some dish soap is also “kosher” as are many brands of zip-lock bags and other non-food items!)
Each item you buy that has a kosher mark on it cost you additional money. The individual amounts are usually small, but the big take is truly BIG! And more important, it’s the principle that matters. Why should someone who doesn’t believe in the Jewish superstition of “kosher” pay into the pocket of a revealed religionist???
The total dollars these rabbis rake in has to be an enormous amount based of the fact that in just one year, 1999, over $130 BILLION was spent on kosher products!!! And as anyone with common sense knows, the corporations who pay these ridiculous fees don’t eat the cost themselves! They pass it on to you and me!
I’ve searched for exact figures of exactly how much the take is that these revealed religionists are enjoying, but it appears the rabbis aren’t in favor of transparency when it comes to this superstition based scam. I did, however, learn that having just one full-time mashgiach, or kashrut supervisor, runs between $40,000 and $50,000 per year! Common sense tells us that kashrut supervisors who get paid decent salaries and also have full job benefits along with 401K plans have significant amounts of money flowing in from somewhere. Add to this that The Wall Street Journal reports in its April 18, 2011 edition that companies “pay from $2,000 to tens of thousands of dollars annually” to the rabbis to declare their products kosher and to allow their kosher seal to be placed on the products’ packaging! It becomes very obvious that the take is huge! Reality tells us the source of their cash-flow is the pockets of consumers, the over whelming majority of whom don’t even believe in this ancient Jewish superstition!
The cost of making wine kosher is also expensive as is evident by this revelation: “For some small wineries the production of kosher wines can become prohibitively expensive; it means additional staff (rabbinical supervisors, for example) as well as fees to the rabbinical authorities, which can significantly affect the eventual retail price of the wine.” And there is even a further expensive step to take to make sure the wine remains kosher even if the wine is handled by an inferior non-Jew as the above link reveals!
This interesting and revealing article regarding the problems and costs required to make fish “kosher” helps to make clear the high cost of the kosher scam. Only a fool would believe the businesses and corporations which pay for the kosher symbols do not pass that cost on to the consumers as they do with all of their other overhead expenses. And the percentage is high despite what some corporations claim. For example, the manager of the biggest kosher food company in America said in an April 12, 2012 article that being kosher adds “about 20 to 30 percent to the cost of production.”
Money is not just a motivating factor in selling the kosher scam to others, it’s powerful enough to make the Jewish “holy” men change their beliefs about what is “kosher” and what is not! Here is an interesting article about this in regards to kosher matzo!
The kosher scam is often defended as being harmless. Snopes.com has a page which does this. They take issue with the scam being called a “tax.” Technically they are right, it is not a tax since it is not a government agency charging the extra cash. However, it is without question a hugely profitable scam for rabbis at the expense of Gentiles. The only way for the rabbis to continue it without it being a scam is to have the cashiers at the grocery stores ask each customer if they’d like to donate an additional 1 cent to 10 cents or more per item that will then be given to the rabbis who will keep some for themselves and use the rest to promote Judaism. (The snopes.com kosher article has a factual error which is that it claims the money the rabbis take in by selling the right to use their kosher symbols is only used to keep the business going and to pay the rabbis for their services [which is bad enough solely on principle since the bulk of the money is from unsuspecting Gentiles who don’t want to pay any amount to support Judaism and the Jewish clergy] and that none of the money flows “off into some special Jewish fund used to advance Zionist causes.” The Orthodox Union openly brags about using its considerable amounts of cash to promote Judaism and their own logo contains the slogan “Enhancing Jewish Life”! [they should add “At the expense of Gentiles!”].)
One of the programs of the Orthodox Union is Mashiv Haruach, a joint project of the Orthodox Union and the Israeli Defense Forces! The OU article about this Zionism promoting program which is in its 12th year is entitled, “Mashiv Haruach: Deepening Israeli Soldiers’ Connection to Judaism and to the Land.” This program makes it very, very clear that the snopes.com article is profoundly factually wrong in falsely claiming money taken from largely unsuspecting Gentiles through the kosher scam does not go into some Jewish fund used to advance Zionist causes.”
“Revealed religion” leaders are not bound by God-given reason. They have their various “holy” books that they interpret for their own benefit. The inhumane manner in which cattle and fowl are killed to satisfy the Jewish superstition of “kosher” brings out this fact.
According to the Jewish “holy” books, their god wants them to withhold any form of anesthetic from the unfortunate animal. The Jewish “holy” men have the gall to expect us to believe them when they say the kosher method of slaughter, in which the animal, usually strung up by it hind feet and in extreme terror as pictured below, has its throat sliced open and bleeds to death, is the most humane way to slaughter an animal because the blades the Jewish “holy” men use are very sharp!!! Only a moron or a religious fundamentalist would believe that lie!!! Free thinking people refuse to take garbage like that “on faith”!
In a weak effort to appease criticism, some kosher slaughterhouses use a device that envelops, holds and turns the animal upside down while the rabbi slits its throat, as if this will somehow make this barbaric ignorant religious practice acceptable. Here is a link to the PETA site to demonstrate without question that this in no way alleviates the UNNECESSARY suffering the animal is forced to endure. WARNING: This video is very graphic, watch it only if you have a very strong stomach! However, it appears PETA has succumbed to Jewish pressure to the point of propagating their religious lie that cutting the throat of a living fully awake and terrified animal “appears all but painless and quickly renders the animal unconscious.” It seems PETA has joined the clergy in thinking people are gullible enough to buy this lie!
I recently received an email from a non-religious Jew who pointed out to me the fact that the original intention for kosher religious rules was to further separate the Hebrews/Jews from their neighbors/non-Jews/Gentiles. Also, the slogan for Hebrew National hotdogs, which brags about following kosher slaughter methods, was for years, “We answer to a higher authority.” (Anyone who would believe God/a higher authority wants the barbaric kosher slaughter method used would probably believe the Jewish/Hebrew priest who claimed in Numbers 31:21 that Moses was only following orders from God when he ordered the Israelite army to “kill every male among the little ones” and to save the virgin “women children” for themselves.)
What YOU Can DO!
When you examine the food in your kitchen cabinets and find products that have any of the below “U”‘s or “K”‘s on them (which means they’re certified kosher) call the company that is so certified and voice your complaint. The “U”‘s and “K”‘s don’t have to be enclosed in a circle. Sometimes they stand alone and sometimes they’re in a triangle.
Also, search for other products that aren’t part of this inhumane scam. It’s usually difficult to find companies that aren’t certified kosher, but it’s well worth the effort!

HatesNewUsernames: Ok… let me get this straight… WTAF?!?
nidarus: He’s referring to [this](https://oukosher.org/content/uploads/2012/11/OU-Logo.jpg). The logo of the American Orthodox Union, that’s used to indicate certified Kosher food. The circle is for “Orthodox”, U is for “Union”. Antisemites like to call it a “Jewish scam”, or “Jewish tax”, because food companies that want to get kosher certificates have to pay these kosher accreditation bodies, that are literally filled with (((rabbis))). And that’s literally money going to Jews every time you shop at the supermarket!!!111
But that apparently went over this guy’s head, and since that symbol kinda looks like a copyright symbol with a U instead of a C inside, he decided the Jews simply copyrighted the letter U instead.
Barry_Scotts_Cat: So PragerU is funding (()))th3 jooz((())?
EarballsOfMemeland: Surely that’s a troll, surely…?
randomhyenafact: This is a plan I came up with when I was ten.
I am part of the Jewish global conspiracy.
barakvesh: This sounds like a complete misunderstanding of the OU kosher symbol
DrStalker: This has just set a new bar for “dumbest Jew-blaming conspiracy.”
trjones1: Love how the first reply is asking for a source.
Iggy-Koopa: Does the money just go to all of them? Because if so, it’s being spread just a little bit thin.
hkpp: A racist, anti-Semitic, mentally unhinged Trump supporter with hours of free time everyday to shit post and spam. Sounds aboot right.
Usernamethx9000: “Should I make out the check to ‘The Jews'”
But seriously there are some people over here that are mentally ill. This is so out there, that you gotta wonder about this person’s mental health.
> Jews copyrighted the letter ‘U’ and make all companies with ‘U’ in their logo pay them millions each year.
1) You can’t copyright letters
2) Even if they did do that it isn’t a welfare scam
3) Why the letter U?
TheNewAcct: WTF are my “U” checks?
_Ph03niX: Wow. That comment deserves an award of some sort. Elsewhere in that post..
> Here’s proof of Israel’s involvement in 911:
Proceeds to link to numerous youtube videos and other batshit comment threads.
This zionist shill is not convinced.
Prof_Insultant: You gotta read through this guys post history. He has reached the absolute pinnacle of batshit insane. NON PLUS ULTRA.
IronedSandwich: how the fuck do you think of these things?
HGStormy: well that’s a new one
ab_ra_ca_dabba: It is true. I own the copyright for the letter U. I own all the money and I have the best money. Believe me
yourplotneedswork: TIL all Trump companies are funding the Zionist conspiracy
hawkshaw1024: So this logic means they also own the US and Russia, right
Hagatha_Crispy: Why wouldn’t they pick the letter E? Most used, make the most money that way.
Must be a hard life to live. I feel bad.
kwik-e-marx: (((u))) mad bro???
brenno-hippie: Pfft. What, you think the letter “U” actually exists? You trying to cover up the truth, you shill? Those of us in the know, are aware of the fact that the letter “U” was invented by type writer company’s trying to keep the everyday typing man down. If you’re dumb enough to get sued over a letter that doesn’t even exist, then you shouldnt be able to own a company.
Deeplorable_Infidel: Can confirm. My wife is Jewish and receives a handsome check every month
MayoIsSpicy: I like how British the top response is
MadGeekling: Is this a KenM thing? It feels like this guy is parodying the alt right.
amanforallsaisons: You can’t even copyright a full title. Any I’d love to hear the thought process behind picking U. If I had been consulted, we’d have started with all the vowels. Only Wales and Poland would escape our attorneys.
OMGWTFBBQUE: How do I find this sillier than “lizard people”? 2017 is a hell of a time to be alive.
_Ph03niX: OP is getting absolutely destroyed in his own thread, by his own hand. Mods even had to flair the post “opinion”.
alialialiaway: My main problem is why the letter U? Isn’t it more beneficial to go with a different letter that is more common? Like A or S or T?
This is just weak business!
YourDentist: I’m here for the copywrite.
motosanders: I guess Miami is right in saying that it’s all about the U.
