Republican Oklahoma Lawmaker: Customers “Might Try To Jew Me Down” On Price (Video)

This past week, Oklahoma State Rep. Dennis Johnson was talking about small businesses during a floor debate, and said that sometimes customers will “try to Jew me down on a price, that’s fine. You know what? That’s free market as well.”

Johnson continued speaking, apparently unaware that he had made the remark, for a few seconds before someone off-camera passed him a note. Johnson replied, “Did I?”

The phrase “Jew me down” is defined as “negotiating a lower price” and is considered to be ethnically offensive.

Johnson then jokingly added, to laughter from the room: “I apologize to the Jews. They’re good small businessmen as well.”

Somehow, we don’t think those who were offended by the remark would be satisfied with that apology. Especially when they watch the flippant way that he did so.

Oklahoma has no Jewish members in their legislature.

Watch it below!

    I don’t think this is the right guy to be lecturing on marketing.

    When I moved to Florida from New York as a 10 year old in the early 70s, I heard this term for the first time, my first day in school. The next 12 years proved to be little better.

    Well, I might be from a long line of Okies, but I’m not a stupid anti-Semetic blob of snot like this rotund bag of hog droppings.

    Good article, but the last sentence should read “in their LEGISLATURE,” not “legislation.”
