Purim Gone Wrong

The Duckman —  02/25/2013 —  Comments

Purim is over. But of course there has to be some sort of controversy surrounding the holiday. Three incidents happened over the Purim weekend and we have to wonder if this holiday is actually good for the Jews or if it brings out the worst in some people.

Incident 1: Twin Towers 9/11 costumes

A wonderful father in Israel dressed his twin 7 year old sons as the twin towers being hit by airplanes. How terrible of a person do you have to come up with this idea and then to force your kids to wear such a despicable costume? Very?

Incident 2: Black Face Politicians

New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind thought it was a good idea to bring up old racist stereotypes and bust out the black face. I originally thought he was an umpa loompa, but apparently he dressed up as a basketball player which doesn’t help the racist costume at all. SMH… //Heeb Magazine

Incident 3: Hanging Haman outside your school

If non Jews can hang skeletons on Halloween, Jews can hang dummies to represent Haman and his 10 sons, right? I’m sure everyone knows the story of Purim, right? It’s not like anyone would take this as a threat… no… of course not… (Holy shit, what were you thinking? This was some sort of good idea?)

So…

Who took Purim to the worst level?

    Purim exalts and commemorates an ancient operation very much like 9/11. It glorifies the deceptions of Esther, who concealed her Jewish identity to seduce the King of Persia, then slyly tricked him into slaughtering 75,000 people deemed “enemies of the Jews.” – Being a big j00, you should understand full well why this is not only a great costume, but is just “the jewish way”.

    Purim celebrates Jews lying, secretly penetrating the highest levels of government, and manipulating the leaders of an empire into mass-murdering perceived “enemies of the Jewish people.” -Wake up.

    Dov Hikind wins just for his sustained post-facto cluelessness about it. The others are fairly offensive and pretty dumb, but they’re also just the kind of thing that happens when people exist in a bubble. I can imagine some too-clever young parent or uncle/aunt thinking the 9/11 costumes were ‘ironic’ (or that they might be the work of a zealous truther), or that someone running a hebrew school might be in the same kind of bubble that people running christian schools get into. Hikind, as an elected official, has no such excuse.
