Friday was a double-dipper for politically correct indignity in the banana republic of Obamastan. Rock and roll superstar Bruce Springsteen announced that he was cancelling a Greensboro, North Carolina concert over the state’s law prohibiting cross-dressing freaks from using women’s restrooms, a decision that has been to put it mildly become extremely controversial. This left 15,000 disappointed fans who were left holding the bag because Springsteen wanted to show “solidarity” or in layman’s terms stage a public relations stunt that will inevitably sell more merchandise for the Boss. But the real outrage was directed at a group of high school kids in Princeton, N.J. over their “Jews vs. Nazis” drinking game.
The Washington Post reports that “Students play ‘Jews vs. Nazis’ beer pong; one side has a swastika, the other a Star of David”:
“Perhaps it is a joke. But then I guess the punchline would be: genocide,” high school student Jamaica Ponder wrote on her blog, calling out her classmates for playing a drinking game she called racist, insensitive and indefensible.
The game was “Jews vs. Nazis beer pong” — shooting ping-pong balls into cups of beer that have been arranged into the shape of a swastika on one side and a Star of David on the other. The team of “Jews” gets an “Anne Frank” cup that they can hide anywhere in the room; the team of “Nazis” has the power to “Auschwitz” one of their opponents, forcing him to sit out, according to rules of the game posted online.
A photograph posted to Snapchat shows seven teens playing the game in a basement in Princeton, N.J., pouring Coors Light into a swastika made out of white cups and a Star of David made out of red cups. The photo came to light when Ponder, a Princeton High School student, posted it to her blog on Wednesday.
“I know I’m not the only one who saw this Snapchat story. Yet here I am, the only one saying anything about it. I am unsure as to what’s worse: the static silence from my peers, or the fact that this happened in the first place,” Ponder wrote. “Putting the picture on social media means that someone was proud enough of the game to want to show it off. Meaning that they must be trapped in the delusional mindset that making a drinking game based off of the Holocaust is cool. Or funny. Or anything besides insane. Because that’s what this is: insanity.”
The high school hijinks has triggered an uproar in this land of thin-skinned, easily offended whiners and has drawn criticism from the Jewish Anti Defamation League (ADL) for trivializing the Holocaust. While the game is certainly in poor taste it has become a national news story like just about every real or perceived racial, religious or gender related slight manages to do anymore.
Princeton police are reportedly investigating.
