Prompted by reading the recent news about the Colorado judge who resigned after being censured by the Colorado Supreme Court for her use of racial slurs around employees, two Jewish service members, fed up with their Christian Section Chief’s constant indecorous comments and outrageously inappropriate questions about being Jewish, decided they’d had enough of their own racial slur problem and were going to do something about it.
Two Jewish service members, in front of their fellow service members, had been subjected by their self-proclaimed “proud Christian who walks his faith” Section Chief to an incessant stream of anti-Semitic and blatantly stereotypical questions.
The two Jewish service members, in front of their fellow service members, had been subjected by their self-proclaimed “proud Christian who walks his faith” Section Chief to an incessant stream of anti-Semitic and blatantly stereotypical questions such as: “What is it like to be Jew?” — Did they know where the word “kike” came from — Would they give him “guided tour of Auschwitz?” — Why “you people” wear those little beanies on your heads? — Why “are you all so good with money?” — Why “you all reject Jesus when he was one of your own?"
Then came the last straw. Their “proud Christian” Section Chief, who claimed only to want to learn more about these peculiar people known as Jews, dangled a new carrot as part of his non-stop invitations for these Jews to attend his lunchtime Bible study — instead of the usual hotdogs that he typically served at his Bible studies, he would bring “Bagel Dogs for the Chosen People” if they attended!!!!
Rather than accepting the degrading invitation to nosh on blessed bagel dogs with their Bible-thumping boss, the two Jewish service members contacted their base’s local Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) representative, who put them in touch with MRFF founder and president Mikey Weinstein.
Mikey moved swiftly, as always, contacting the Section Chief’s commander’s commander, and less than a day and a half later the two service members were informed that their “proud Christian” anti-Semitic Section Chief had been removed from his position, with an apology to the two service members for the demeaning anti-Semitism they had endured.
This morning, the grateful service members sent the following email to MRFF, describing in their own words the outrageous anti-Semitism that MRFF had put a stop to for them.
