The war on Purim


When I wrote my post on the New York City politician who had put on blackface and donned an Afro wig to portray himself as a basketball player and his subsequent non-apology apology, I had not known that Dov Hikind is a well-known figure in the Orthodox Jewish community who has a reputation for being extremely sensitive to perceived slights.

The Daily Show seems to have been well aware of Hikind’s past and so seized on his bizarre behavior to have some fun at his expense.

(These clips were aired on February 26, 2013. To get suggestions on how to view clips of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report outside the US, please see this earlier post.)

    That stalker named “slc” will call you an anti-semite for pointing out this story.
