High School Kids Play Beat the Jew
www.joytiz.com ^ | 6/1/10 | Joy Tiz

Posted on 06/01/2010 1:04:35 PM PDT by jazminerose

Students at La Quinta High School, in So Cal’s Coachella Valley have been amusing themselves playing a game called “Beat the Jew”. In the “game”, a runner is called a “Jew” and chased by groups of people in cars called “Nazis”.

"'The objective for the Jew is to run down Hwy. 111 to a specified checkpoint before the Nazis can catch up to him, tackle him down and capture him,’ according to a Facebook page that was taken down on Friday."

Desert Sands Unified School District Superintendent Sharon McGehee displayed the twisted view of the First Amendment endemic to liberals:

"'(It’s) their freedom of speech; there’s not much we can do except be disappointed,’ Desert Sands Unified School District Superintendent Sharon McGehee said, adding that many students apologized." La Quinta, incredibly, is known as one of the better schools in the Valley:

"‘We only have three weeks until there’s not much you can do about it,’ said the 18-year-old La Quinta High student who alerted officials to the game and Facebook page promoting it. She has asked to remain anonymous and is staying home from school out of fear of retribution."

"‘Some of these kids that have joined the group, they’re like the cream of the crop of my class,’ she said. ‘They’re going to be the leaders of our future and they feel this way?’"

Tell the admin the kids are praying. I bet that free speech argument goes right out the window.

They will be leaders of the Dimocrap Party. How do you like the future, 90% Dim voting Jews?

The little reprobates should be hog tied and locked in a classroom. Then forced to watch Episode 20 of "The World At War" and Episode 9 of "Band of Brothers".

Perhaps then they may be a little more educated about what they are doing.

Change the names to “Beat the Teacher” and “Teacher” / “Gangster Youth” and what would the Principal have done, I wonder?

Bet they wouldn't think it's freedom of speech if a bunch of white kids played "beat the wetback".

I'll bet if the game had been called "Maul the Mexican" she'd have found something to do besides stand around being "disappointed" that the kids were "abusing" their freedom of speech.

Excellent point.

There was a cartoon, I wish I knew where I’d seen it. A teacher was tied to her chair with the kids menacing her with knives & I dont’ remember what all.

She said: “Oh my God!”

The (presumably) principal’s voice came over the loudspeaker:

“You had better not be praying in there, Mrs. Jones!”

Hey, how about we give them another game.

One kid runs really fast around a tree or bush chased by a group of other kids. The game ends when the chasers all melt into butter.

We can call the chasers “tigers” and the lead kid “.....

This is horrible. We don't want school children remembering the atrocities committed by the Nazis against the Jews. We want it to be completely forgotten. Right?

Another Reason to Homeschool.

Metmom, have you noticed that nearly all of these school outrage stories are schools that would be considered “good”? Yet...There are parents who insist that their child's government school is somehow “different”.

Unbelievable!

And...Another thought:

Is this the wonderful “socialization” that homeschoolers are missing? ( Just wondering.)

They get taken to the Holocaust museum in Rancho Mirage for that.

I didn't say teach. I used the much lower standard of "remembering". I'm not encouraging this, but I don't think that their knowing that the Nazis were the bad guys and the Jews were the victims is a bad thing. There are many in the world that want that to be forgottrn.

The following is graphic and disturbing, so skip it from here if you wish.

I have read books over the years regarding the treatment of the Jews by the guards, either through experimentation by Dr. Mengele, or the outright brutal treatment by the guards.

A couple of things still stay with me, and I guess it is because it involved children.

One incident involved a guard who approached a little girl, in full view of the inmates. He rustled something in his pocket, giving her the impression that he had some candy for her. He told her to close her eyes and open her mouth. When she did, he put a pistol in her mouth and pulled the trigger.

There was another guard who loved to take a knife and plunge it into the stomach of children.

In time, I developed the attitude that there should never be rest and reprieve for these monsters. None of them should be allowed to die breathing free air. I don't care if the guard has emphysema and is on oxygen. Take the oxygen away, put the bastard up against a wall and shoot him.

The superintendent is technically right — a government-run school (setting aside for the moment that such a thing really shouldn’t exist) shouldn’t have any authority to restrict students’ free speech rights outside of the school grounds and school-owned computers. The problem here is that there are so many “cream of the crop” students who don’t have a well-founded fear that their parents would exact swift and terrible justice if they ever found out their offspring were participating in something like this.

I certainly hope school officials will at least notify parents of students who were identified as participating, since it will probably be difficult for parents to check themselves, now that the pertinent website has been taken down. A responsible parent would immediately confiscate the car keys, cell phone, and any other amenities not essential to completing the last 3 weeks of academic work, inform the kid that parental financial support for college is now only a distant future possibility, and that the kid (assuming over 18) will have 24 hours from the end of graduation exercises to find new housing accommodations at their own expense.

OK, obvious question. How far would you accommodate their "freedom of speech" if the game were called "beat the queer", "beat the muslim", or the venerable "beat the n*****"?

Thought so.

I understand your sarcasm; however, the context in which we want these things to be remembered is the missing element here - we want school children to remember that what the Nazis did were atrocities, that no people deserve to ever have to endure.

I would content that we do not want young impressionable minds to think the Jews were somehow deserving of being "chased by Nazis" and of what happened to them.

Unfortunately, with the depiction of Israel in the media and their unfortunate PR blunders of late, more and more young people (and people of all walks of life and all ages) tend to believe that Israel (and therefore Jews) are aggressive, oppressive, and Nazi-like.

This gets used as an excuse to partake in Jew-bashing and hatred of Israel, and, consequently, makes it "OK" for these kids to think that "Beat the Jew" is a fun and noble exercise.

How much would you bet that the objective of the game is NOT for the Jew to safely get away, but for the "Nazis" to catch and, well, as the name implies, "beat the Jew". This minor distinction is important in illuminating the underlying reasoning and value systems which guide such behaviors. Furthermore,

Although the article doesn't mention this detail, I also would not at all be surprised that the part of the "Jew" in such games is most likely played by a real Jew, and that it is not voluntary.

Minor details wouldn't you say?

You almost had it.

Take the oxygen away, put the bastard up against a wall and...grasp his skull with both hands and slowly increase pressure on his eyeballs with your thumbs until he screams... then gasps for air and can't seem to draw any in. Then, right before he passes out, apply full pressure to explode the eyeballs. Then let him die on the floor.

Sincerely, I doubt that with the state of their education today these would have any greater feelings for the unpopular victims of the Nazis than for the Christians thrown to the lions. It’s all ancient history.

Today, students are taught to believe that only half black, “former Muslim”, Jew hating, baby aborting, practitioners of Black Liberation Theology and Marxism are worthy of their worship and admiration and then only so long as they support the teacher’s union.

I watched World at War and Victory at Sea over and over on broadcast TV when I was a teen. The episode you mention was the most memorable. Years later the Holocaust mini-series came out and still later it was aired in Germany. I was serving in Germany at the time (US Army). Too few people, here and in Germany, had no idea about “Arbeit Macht Frei”, the rod iron message I, myself, saw on a gate at Dachau. We forget. We ignore. Cambodia, Rwanda, Darfur… it is mankind’s shame that we so casually forget. And we make it a source of entertainment. How sad.

All that tearing down of America, multiculturism, community service projects, and sensitivity training foisted on students by the public schools doesn’t mean much to many young college students. They’ll think and do what they want regardless of what they’re taught. According to this article, there is a total lack of empathy for others.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2525462/posts

Perhaps the public schools are not as successful as they think regarding social issues. Perhaps they should just go back to imparting academic knowledge and leave the socialization issues alone.

Off topic, but I enjoyed “South of the South”.

It was a snapshot of all Southern culture and in particular Africa based folklore. Br’r Rabbit rabbit and Br’r Fox are based on fables brought over by slaves and given an American slant.

If Uncle Remus is a “racist” stereotype by today's standards then what will future generations deem “racist”
Compare modern comdienes whose raging usage of the n-word and over generous “ blacksploitation ” of horrible black stereotypes to the the “Uncle Tom” character and then say whose done more damage to black America?

Uncle Remus gave practical and kindly advice in a witty manner.
And to my knowledge never used the term “ho” (unless in reference to garden implements)

Watch “Boondocks" on the Cartoon Channel and explain why this show isn't offensive?

If future generations don't harshy judge comediennes like Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle as embarrassment to Blacks then these people need to apologize to Uncle Remus, Stepin Fetch-it and Amos ‘n’ Andy...
