The guy is a politician, he should have known better
Plus, his kid needs to be kicked in the ass for posting the stuff on Face Book.
Bottom line is this. If I was a protestant politician and put on a rubber hook nose and hung Peyis on my head from under a black hat, I would be called inappropriate by the Jewish community. If I was a black politician, and painted myself yellow and scotch taped my eyes down, I would be called inappropriate by the Asian community. If I was an Indian politician and painted myself pink and wore a sweater vest I would be called inappropriate by the white community.
This is a "No Brainer", people. Especially for a politician or public official of any sort. This is the same as taking pictures of your junk in your underwear and emailing it to people's phones. This is the same as wearing a rebel battle flag hat to an NAACP meeting. This is the same as wearing a "Nietzsche was right, god is Dead" t-shirt to a midnight mass. It is just DUMB and it's asking for trouble !
Do you want to dress up in a leather nazi bondage outfit and spank your wife with a riding crop? Fine by me, as long as you don't post pictures of it on the interweb.
This guy was an idiot. His son was an idiot... and anyone who wants to defend this guy on principle has no right to complain in the future about how a Nativity scene wasn't allowed on a street corner or how the 13 commandments were sanded off the side of all the dog catcher's trucks because some agnostic St Bernard's were offended.
The reality is that you can't dictate to other people what they should or shouldn't be offended by, and then cry foul when your own sacred cow has graffiti painted on the side of it.
