John Galliano decides to look like a hasid for a fashion week. |
People freak out.
Abe Foxman of ADL gives a "what's the big deal" statement.
Dov Hikind of JDL makes a statement about being outraged (the man is outraged about everything but the Weberman sex abuse)
And then there's this little quote
"John Galliano, and anyone, and I mean ANYONE who supports this sick freak should go to Auschwitz," Bradley Scott Reisman said in a 9 a.m. Facebook post
I'm betting that Bradley is single.
Actually I went and looked him up on FB and he's a friend of friends (and actually pretty cool ones at that) and Bradly actually said
John Galliano, and anyone, and I mean ANYONE who supports this sick freak should go to Auschwitz to see what it was like for a human being to be separated from his/her young, knowing they will be dead from gas in 5 minutes, then put into an oven to burn. You fashion editors who love that Oscar De La Renta hired him should take a tour of the all the camps, bergen belsen, experience the medical experiment room of Dr. Joseph Mengela, walk the death march in the middle of the winter, etc etc etc. My opinion? John Galliano should be fired IMMEDIATELY from Oscar de la Renta and sent back to Europe where this shit is tolerated. America doesn't put up with you jew haters and its time for you to meet your maker.
Which is either worse or better than the soudbite.
Regardless, with Elvis Costello and Noam Chomsky in the world, it seems a waste of energy to waste one's anger on a dude who dresses like a hipster hasid - even if he does go on Mel Gibson rants.
No one has peyos that long and a skeezy moustache - he clearly shaves. And that is a cheap, cheap hat. And a cravat/tie - he looks like an a steampunk asshat - and some people just look like asshats. Some people just are asshats. All he needs is some goggles.
I have a $130 top hat. And a smoking jacket and I wear them to shul. It's like you're trying to hurt my feelings.
I'm into steampunk. Just not cheap steampunk. That hat is cheap. That lip fuzz - also skeezy and cheap.
My hat is not. Your hat is not. HIS hat is cheap. I plan to make myself some more waistcoats since I've lost weight again. I have a bekeshe I wear to shul because it's nicely steampunkish. I might even wear goggles, but nice ones - just to mess with people.
My first thought on seeing the picture was not hassid, just crap steampunk.
I think there is a larger question here that has plagued everyone since adolescence, which is whether fashion is art or bullshit. As art, it raises some interesting issues. As bullshit entertainment, it's probably inappropriate.
Zoolander is only slightly a parody.
I'm very happy to see that one of the prime bitching poltiicians in this story - Dov Hikind - was caught wearing blackface on Purim. Not only does that show him up for the hypocrite that he is but it also prevents him from professionally bitching about that "Jews run Hollywood" joke at the Academy Awards.
