"Jews are just like everyone else - only more so."?

I used a snatch of this clip in another posting.
 
Then, I wondered whether anyone could find anywhere in our allegedly non-racist west, where people could openly carry on like this? Now, as then, the answer is no.

On occasions I've wondered if we don't all harbour some kinds of racist, xenophobic feelings (the trick is to know it and deal with them), so perhaps this clip lends credence to Chaim Weizmann's "Jews are just like everyone else - only more so."
