TigerTim saidWhy what Mocktwinkie is proposing is horrifically tasteless:
While the Holocaust should not be off limits for discussion, debate and even humor---and the latter would be very hard to do---because of its extraordinary nature in history it should not be trivialized.
Engagement with the Holocaust must empower everyone concerned. It must break stereotypes of Jews, it must educate. It must help all of us understand how genocide as a process exists in humanity, and how it can be prevented. A costume can do none of these. It is immaterial whether you're of Jewish extraction or not; by creating such a trite representation of a Jewish person [and a German] you rob all concerned of their dignity.
I strongly urge you to think of something better. Sadly you're not alone in contemplating such a dreadful idea: Prince Harry got into tonnes of trouble for doing something similar.
He wore a swastika. There's a biiiig difference. It wouldn't be trivializing, it would be imagery portraying something positive, not negative.
Yea...something positive.."your friends are hunting and killing my people but I am to self centered to care and you are too self centered to fight against them."
Just like the relationship between gay conservatives and the republican party...
I think your "outrage" is ironic considering that republicans are notoriously supportive of Israel -- something that cannot be said of democrats, who almost invariably tend to support the Palestinians. Never figured out why so many Jewish people vote for the party that doesn't like them.
The Democratic party "doesn't like" the Jewish people?
What a stinking pile of total BS.
Did you hear that BS on Fox?
Haven't you realized yet that you can't believe most of the crap you hear on that propaganda channel?
Or did you just make it up yourself?
You do realize that the only Jewish person to be on a presidential ticket was Joe Lieberman - on the DEMOCRATIC ticket in 2000.
