Today is October 31st. Final day of the month. Happy Halloween everybody!!!
Are you going to a party? Will you be trick or treating? What about a costume? Are you dressed in a Star Wars outfit? Maybe something sexy? What about your kids? Will they be a Disney character? How about being an athlete? So many choices of what to wear. So many decisions to make. If you haven't decided about your costume, let me give you a little advice....
PLEASE DON'T DRESS AS A NAZI FOR HALLOWEEN!!!
The above photo shows a Kentucky man dressed in a Nazi uniform. He has his son dressed as a little Adolf Hitler. They were attending their local Owensboro "Trail of Treats" event. He defended his choice by stating that he was a history buff and often dressed as a historical figure. A year earlier his costume was a confederate soldier. Looks like he decided to double down in 2018.
Naturally he had some answers when accused of being a racist. "White pride doesn't mean hate." Next he blamed the liberals for his predicament. "Being a liberal means being a hypocrite." Nice...great...wonderful...okay, you aren't a racist. We believe you (eyeroll).
Of course, he's married to a woman who has her own opinions about this. She thinks Jews control the banks, the media and the government. She also has a few issues with the Holocaust.
"There is no objective proof of the six million Jews he supposedly murdered. If there was really a Holocaust, then why does it have to be forced down your throat. Open your eyes, people."
Let's have another chat about anti-Semitism. There's nothing new about this. It's being going on for centuries. We would like to think that we've become a more tolerant people since World War 2. Sadly, we haven't. In the last few years, Jews have been fleeing Europe in record numbers. In the United States, anti-Semitic episodes are up sixty percent since 2016. You can't go a week without hearing about a synagogue or JCC building being desecrated with a swastika.
If that's not enough, ask any Jew if they've had a personal moment with anti-Semitism. I'll start the discussion by telling about the time I was called a fucking Kike because a baseball was thrown on a neighbor's lawn. I was twelve years old.
I hope I've given you enough reasons not to wear a Nazi costume today, but if you're still on the fence, here's eleven more:
Those are the eleven victims of the shooting at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue. They were murdered because of only one reason. They were Jewish.
I hope this information helps you on making the proper choice of a Halloween costume. If history is your thing, try Abe Lincoln, George Washington or Winston Churchill. Just don't be a Nazi! If you're mind is set on that, read this one more time before going out. Thanks for not being a Nazi.
