Geraldo, in making a point about the immigration issues, uses some Nazi imagery to get his point across on O’Reilly. Even though he is Jewish (Son of Cruz Allen Rivera and Lillian Friedman), why does he reach for this metaphor?
GERALDO RIVERA: I think it’s outrageous, and what she said was outrageous. You know, I have two Hispanic-American sons. You know what this is going to result in? This is going to result in racial profiling. If, in her America, in Michelle’s America, when you look, is that Hispanic guy an illegal or is he legal? It reminds me so much of when they used to pull down the pants of Jews to see if they were circumcised or not. It is, it is so, so pathetic. It’s so un-American.
Not to mention that the man has four ex’s and five kids. What about the other kids Gerald?
According to Wiki and NNDB , Geraldo has a lot more than just two boys—but I guess he is on the whole pull down the pants thing.
* Erica Levy (10 August 2003— ) one child, a daughter born in August 2005

* Edith Vonnegut (14 December 1971 – 1975) (divorced)
* Linda Coblentz (1965 – 1969) (divorced)
And then if that were not strange enough (his pants comment and that he doesn’t recognize his daughters as having a problem) he digs this one even deeper…
RIVERA: People have been pulling down the pants of Jews since Hammurabi. The Spanish expulsion, the French expulsion, the British expulsion, the Arab countries expelling the Jews. It is not about Nazism.
Pulling pants down? Geraldo they burned the Jews. They didn’t check if they were circumcised .
