Where Was Hitler At The University of Pennsylvania Halloween Party?
University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutman with her friend Saad Saadi.
Thanks to Ronald Barbour for making me aware of this:
University of Pennsylvania president Amy Gutmann threw her annual Halloween costume party at her home Tuesday night. Among the guests was Saad Saadi, who came dressed as a suicide bomber, complete with plastic dynamite strapped to his chest and a toy automatic rifle. Worse, Gutmann posed with Saadi!An obvious question: would Gutmann have posed with a guest--or even allowed him into her house--if he'd dressed as Adolf Hitler or a Nazi SS officer? A KKK member?But in modern liberal circles, posing as a Palestinian suicide bomber (see his kefiya) is just fine. After all, he mainly tries to kill innocent Jews.
Saad Saadi has a web site, at which he has posted many photographs along with the apology posted below.
My friend, Jason, and I express our condolences and sympathy to all affected by our costumes. We wish to make it clear that we do not support terrorism, violence, or anything that is against society. There is no agenda or statement associated with our behavior shown in these pictures. The costumes are meant to portray scary characters much like many other costumes on Halloween. Additionally, we strive for all societies to instill healthy and non-violent values.
Hey, maybe I'll go to an Muslim party dressed as Vlad the Impaler. How's that?
Go check out Ronald's blog. He has more photos of this event which you will want to see.
Honestly, I think I can understand Saad's apology. When people are young they do have a hard time understanding the true horror of the suffering of others. It could be that Saad really has no Jihadi sympathies.
However, wouldn't you think the fucking President of University of Pennsylvania would have more sense? Well, maybe she has sympathy for the Jihad. That wouldn't be surprising, would it?
