The war on Purim

Jessica Williams does such a great job here, doesn't she? I really thought this was funny. Will Fox 'News' start complaining about the War on Purim now?

Dov Hikind is a conservative Democrat and an Orthodox Jew representing one of the largest communities of Orthodox Jews outside Israel. As such, he is eager to protest any hint of antisemitism, but seems strangely blind to similar concerns in other communities.

I might note that he also continues to fight against gay marriage (since 'God' doesn't like that, don't you know).

His religious beliefs are his own, but I find it odd how often religion goes with complete cluelessness about other people. Oh, you're very determined to fight against discrimination, but only when it's directed at you.

It's the hypocrisy that makes this so funny, don't you think?

That's really funny. It's beyond belief that an adult would be clueless enough to walk around in blackface. I get a kick out of the "apology". "I'm sorry if you were offended". That's the standard non-apology all politicians do when they get caught. How sad is it that it's always the guy on the comedy channel who points that out?
