So Hit A Jew!

Spirit week in a Missouri school went from the nice (hug a friend day) to the more esoteric (hit a tall person day) to the anti-semetic (hit a jew day). 10/35 of the Jewish students were hit, ranging from taps on the back or shoulders to one case of face slap. Participants may face suspension and possibly ‘counseling’. Good to hear. Nothing gets us over our wimpy image quite like forcing authorities to send even our lamest aggressors to talk things out in counseling.

Haaretz reports:

At least four students from a suburban St. Louis middle school face punishment for allegedly hitting Jewish classmates during what they called Hit a Jew Day.

The incident happened last week at Parkway West Middle School in Chesterfield.

District spokesman Paul Tandy says some of the school’s approximately three dozen Jewish students were hit on the shoulders or backs. But in one case, a student allegedly was slapped in the face.

It began with an unofficial Spirit Week among sixth-graders that started harmlessly enough with a Hug a Friend Day. Then there was High Five Day.

Soon, though, the days moved from friendly to silly. Next there was Hit a Tall Person Day and, finally, Hit a Jew Day.

District officials believe a handful of children were directly involved. Those who actually struck classmates could face suspension and required counseling, Tandy said. Others who weren’t directly involved but taunted Jewish students or egged on classmates could face lesser penalties.

There is a mix of sadness and outrage, Tandy said. The concern is a lot of kids knew about it and they didn’t take action or say anything.

Karen Aroesty, St. Louis regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, said this was more than a case of bullying. Officials from the group plan to discuss the matter with school leaders

  • What can I tell you? American Jews have been trained to be docile. I’m sure it has nothing to do with their parent’s liberal upbringing. An example of that: my friend’s parents always told him, “Violence is never the answer, talk it out…” while my dad would say, “If someone ever hits you, punch him right in the nose as hard as you can… they’ll never hit you again”. You can bet your arse that these Jewish tattle-tales will get picked on more than before. When I was in high-school, several kids spread a rumor that I call Chaldeans, “Camels”. Although it wasn’t true, I was told I was going to be jumped after school by a posse of Chaldeans. I tried to rally up some Jews to my defense, only one, my best friend, was there for me. The rest, mostly JAPs, were more concerned about how tight their pants were rolled. If it wasn’t for my black friends rallying to my defense, I would have had my arse kicked. The Chaldeans backed off knowing that the Blacks knew how to fight and meant business and that the Jews were p***ies. In the FSU, my dad and the other few Jews in the neighborhood HAD to band together, or they would get beat up every day. Any time when Jews actually did rally together for defense in this country, other weak kneed, spineless Jews told them they would set a bad example and that violence was not that answer, and now we’re the least bit surprised that people think they can get away with “Hit a Jew Day”? I’m not. Every Jew should know how to fight and own guns. Especially, with an incoming Obama Thugocracy and his pals in the NOA feeling all the more powerful.

  • Just mentioning; In todays newspaper (Dagens Nyheter, stockholm sweden) there was an article about a multi cultural “barometer” from Uppsala university which showed an increasing negative attitude by swedes to multi culturism (gosh what a surprise!). Among things listed was the groups that swedes considered to be immigrants, ” iraquis, kurds, iranians, turks, somalians, bosnians, serbs, croatians, GYPSIES, chileans, russians, chinese, greeks, JEWS, poles and thais…”
    Is it the chance to defile beautiful nordic blondes which is causing the vast influx of jews from jewland to wonderful tolerant Sweden (not to be confused in any way with the rest of nazi tainted europe)?
    All these jewish immigrants are not very noticeable on our streets. They must be hiding because swedes couldn´t possibly be refering to swedish citizens of jewish descent, who have been here for several generations, as immigrants?
    Thank god we don´t have an Obama here to invent anti semitism.

  • I’m with Alex.

    Let’s institute “Kick a Goy In The Nuts Until he Cries Like A Baby Day”.

    That should stop this shit.

  • Staff should have stopped this on “slap a tall person”-day. It appears the kids would have gone on endlessly slapping minorities. There’s a reason my great-grandmother used to tell me to be wary of short people. 🙂

  • Ephraim, do you really think that’s the answer? To spread more hostility and aggression? Ok, maybe this is coming from a shiksa, but I don’t think more violence OR more racial profiling is the answer.

    froylein, I agree. This should have ended on “hit a tall person day.”

  • The point I’m making is, people don’t victimize those that don’t allow themselves to be victimized. I bet you wouldn’t see “See Hit a Black Day” or “Hit an Italian Day” or “Hit an Irish Day” because those kids are taught to hit you back hard. Why do you think the Arab Word doesn’t attack Israel every day? Because Israeli’s hit back harder. Well, they used to at some point.

    Because we are civil and don’t like violence doesn’t mean others will agree and behave like us or our children. When reasonable discourse and talking someone out of attacking you doesn’t work, and when school staff, or the UN for that matter don’t do their jobs, violence is the only solution. What else is left? To just take it?

    Everyone has a tipping point. Every people and country should have lines to draw. Pacifism at all costs isn’t righteous, it’s insane, and against every principle of religious, moral, philosophical, and or physiological self-survival. It’s inhumane AFAISI.

  • Grand Muffti,

    I’m not saying people shouldn’t be offended. I was pretty repulsively shocked by the story, and so were my loved ones that I told.

    Think of the parallels if this had been a “Hit a Black day” (especially with the USA’s history of slavery, or “Hit a Girl day” The responses that these two situations would have elicited should be the same as the responses elicited from “Hit a Jew day”.

    I don’t think the proper response is to endorse a “Kick a Goy In The Nuts Until he Cries Like A Baby Day”.

    Maybe a little cultural sensitivity training is what these kids need.

  • Muffti thinks that without more context, it’s hard to know what to make of it. No one got hurt and the intention are awfully hard to divine from the kids. Few kids even complained.

    Then again , Muffti has a pretty high threshold for offense.

  • No offense, Modern Girl, and I don’t mean it personally, but goyim who think it’s OK to have a “Hit a A Jew Day” should be hit back. Then they will stop.

    This has nothing to do with “racial profiling” or “hostility and aggression”. I am not advocating the idea that Jews should indiscriminately institute their own version of “Hit A Jew Day” and apply it to gentiles. I am saying that if a goy hits a Jew for no other reason than that he or she is a Jew, said Jew should kick said gentile in the nuts. People who defend themselves cannot possible be aggressors.

  • “Maybe a little cultural sensitivity training is what these kids need.”

    You are kidding, right? 🙂

  • Ooooh. I thought it was “Hit on a Jew Day.” You know – “Hey Yitzchak, your tzitzis are looking mighty fetching today!” or “Leah! How about we advance the cause of fellowship between Christians and Jews tonight over some drinks?”

    That sort of day of course has it’s own issues. But “Hit a Jew Day??” That’s just wrong. We are talking about 8th graders in Missouri though. How did this stupidity become a national issue??

  • The first time I felt truly proud to be Jewish was not my Bar Mitzvah. It was when I was 14 and took on two redneck jerks who were picking on the little Jewish kid (me). The best cure for anti-semitism – a sharp jab to the nose.

  • I absolutely think people should stand up for themselves. Of course, if your are attacked, you need to use self-defense. If you don’t, you will be picked on more.

    But, if you’re going to stand up for yourself, you need to do it right away. For example, if a kid pushes you and you jab in the nose right away, then that’s good. But if you waited until the next day or next time you saw the kid to retaliate, then it won’t work. Then you are initiating, and long term, on going fight, instead of a one time incident. If you retaliate with a latent response, then you will need to expect a latent response from the person you attacked.

    So, if the kids don’t stand up for themselves on spot, then they shouldn’t physically push back later. It’s going to make things much worse.

    That’s what I meant when I said there shouldn’t be a planned “Kick a Goy In The Nuts Until he Cries Like A Baby Day”. If a group of people planned something like that, it’s going to lead to a long term cultural battle. In this particular situation I really think that education will go a long way with this kids, instead of violence.

    I know I’m a goy. I’m know I’m not an authority on this topic, and I respect the fact you are letting me contribute to the conversation. But I am working on my doctorate in social development in child and youth, so I think I have at least some knowledge about preventing these activities in this age group of adolescents.

    No Alex, I’m not suggesting that education alone can work miracles, and it is dependent upon numerous factors, but it’s a nonviolent starting point.

  • I don’t follow your logic Modern Girl. If someone smacks you upside the head because you’re a Jew – you might be so stunned that before you can respond, your assailant has run away. In a case like that I think it would be perfectly acceptable to defend yourself at a time and locale that suits you. As for “Kick a Goy In The Nuts Until he Cries Like A Baby Day” I think the suggestion was facetious. Just as “Hit a Jew Day” was wrong because of it’s arbitrariness, “Kick a Goy In The Nuts Until he Cries Like A Baby Day” might affect non-Jews who had nothing to do with “Hit a Jew Day.” What would have been better was ““Kick a Jew-Hitting Goy In The Nuts Until he Cries Like A Baby Day.” That would have been cool.

    But yeah, we appreciate your contribution. I don’t care that you’re not Jewish. You’re Canadian. That’s all that matters when it comes to civil discourse. Though I’m not pleased with the decision to have elections this year during a high holiday. Not cool Canada.

  • The candidates have weighed in on this, with Obama favoring counseling, and McCain something he cryptically referred to as “schoolyard justice.”

  • I once say a bar fight in a London pup that started because someone called someone a Yid. Apparently that Yid was on the University wrestling team. But how many Jews do you know who can take on a big white guy?
    I agree with Modern girl that if you are going to respond physically you should do it right away or else momentum is gone and you start a tit-for-tat fight of who gives the last smack.
    I think the problem of Jews is that they are “so stunned that before you can respond, your assailant has run away.” like ck says.
    Then you have to use another way to get back at the person and it gets messy.

    This doesn’t specifically have to do with Jews, it works for all bullying.
    Smack. Hit. Push. Kick. Done

  • @@ ALEX: “…Every Jew should know how to fight and own guns. Especially, with an incoming Obama Thugocracy and his pals in the NOA feeling all the more powerful…”

    Wonderful. Fight back with misplaced racism towards a guy who can be a calm intelligent leader of your disgusting country instead of the beast you’ve had for the last eight years y a mi que me importa si fuera un “friend of ISRAEL” o que no lo fuera?

    Which reminds me…it’s that AIPAC and CUFI that takes away Jewish peoples’ pride and makes them weak in America. Like when they get these Jewish folkloric dancers to put on minstrel shows for the amusement of White Baptists. Que se vayan al carajo, todos! Que huevado de’lechugo!

    This story has nothing to do with Barack Obama. It has to do with American bigotry. The same kind of American bigotry you display towards Obama, whose campaign manager is Jewish and whose most important mentor, Judge Mikva, is Jewish.

    I love tough Americans and their guns. You want to see what a real tough Jew is like? You come down to Cali, Colombia, and we’ll shoot a round of golf at the country club. And you’ll see what Jews are like there. Nobody hates guns more than Jewish calenos. They all have to carry 9mms with them and their houses are behind razor wire and most kids will have seen half their male relatives blown up in front of them or shot to death by paramilitaries by the time they’re 12 because they’re members of the Liberal Party or because they’re washing dope money or because they’re moving weight or because they’re just criminal defense lawyers.

    But I live in Panama. Colombia’s too crazy for me.

    I still taught my son how to box and when he learned all I could teach him, I got him lessons with the guy who trained Duran. My boy’s not quite nine and would have loved to bust up on fucking gringos de mierda.

    And down here we all mix: black, white, Jewish, Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, gay, straight, whatver. The only kind of people I don’t like are right-wing White Americans, be they Jewish or goyish.
