and Jewschoolicious as well…
So imagine you’re at the airport in Kansas, on your way to catch a flight to New York, when all of a sudden some total idiot shows up wearing a giant swastika on his t-shirt, all la-dee-da “I’m just here to drop off a colleague and this is just some shirt I’m wearing, what’s it to you?” What do you do?
Well, if you’re Rabbi David S. Fine 36, Rabbi of Orthodox Congregation Beth Israel Abraham & Voliner in Overland Park, Kansas City, you tell the idiot, Steven T. Boswell, 30, that he should be ashamed for wearing swastikas in public. And then when the fucker gives you some lip and tells you that you are inhuman, you throw your coffee in his face and proceed to pummel the twit.
Both Rabbi Fine and
Mr. Stupid Head Boswell were eventually separated and charged with disorderly conduct. Both are scheduled to appear in court on June 22.
What’s interesting is that Rabbi Fine received his rabbinic ordination from Yeshivat Hamivtar in Efrat. You know … where some of those those awful settler dudes come from? And while his fervent response to provocation is OK and even celebrated by Jewschool when it occurs at an airport in the midwest, similar fervent responses to provocation in the Midwest Bank… not so celebrated.
Whatever. Good job Rabbi!
