Have you ever been so salty about someone throwing a party without you that you then alerted the press and school administration to a supposedly anti-Semitic beer pong game they were playing? Personally, I haven’t. But Jamaica Ponder of Princeton High School certainly has.
Look, I can understand that the desire to get famous runs pretty strong nowadays, but this shit is just laughable. It’s even getting attention over in the UK. From Sky News…
Police are investigating a report that students from a New Jersey high school played a “Jews vs Nazis” drinking game.
A photo posted on Snapchat shows an apparent version of beer pong with plastic cups arranged in the shapes of a swastika and a Star of David.
Several young men are seen standing round the table with cans of Coors Light.
The image allegedly shows Princeton High School students playing “Holocaust Pong” or “Alcoholocaust”…
According to rules of the game posted online, the team of “Jews” receives an “Anne Frank” cup that they can hide anywhere in the room.
The team of “Nazis” has the ability to “Auschwitz” one of their opponents, forcing him to sit out.
Wow, that sounds like a really funny game! The next time I get together with my friends this is definitely going to be on the agenda. Seriously, has everyone lost their fucking sense of humor? This game is legitimately amusing and even if you don’t think so, it’s not worth spotlighting it and throwing a fit.
Well, unless you’re trying to draw attention to yourself, which was Ms. Ponder’s end goal. I have to give her some sort of credit, because it really, really paid off.
Take a look at this insane blog post (archive). It’s politically correct culture personified…
Today I’m coming to you live from the futon in my room with some fresh off the boat debauchery straight from the students of Princeton High School. This here is even more appalling than the usual stuff. Honestly, it’s ridiculous- but it would be even more ridiculous for me to come across such ignorance and not utilize it as an example for anyone else harboring the misconception that they can walk around doing dumb stuff like this and not get called out. So here we are.
Oh yes, Jamaica, there’s definitely something ridiculous here, but it’s not this particular brand of beer pong.
Right off of Snapchat in a harrowingly recognizable basement, with our classmates front and center. And no, your eyes aren’t playing a trick on you. Yes, that’s a swastika. Double yes- they’re playing Jews vs Nazis beer pong. No again, this isn’t a joke.
Well, perhaps it is a joke. But then I guess the punchline would be: genocide. Pardon me if I don’t find that to be hilarious. The real joke here is that these kids weren’t only insensitive enough to play the game, but also silly enough to post it on Snapchat and leave it there long enough for me, and several others, to take a screenshot.
So, you steal photos off someone’s Snapchat and that’s supposed to be cool? What part of the game is this? You just violated the trust of a friend in order to get clicks to your third-rate blog. Talk about being untrustworthy. If you were in my school, in my circle…it’s over. I’d never hang with you again and would probably go out of my way to make sure you became a social pariah. I can pretty much guarantee that these conversations are taking place at your school as we speak, by the way.
Putting the picture on social media means that someone was proud enough of the game to want to show it off. Meaning that they must be trapped in the delusional mindset that making a drinking game based off of the Holocaust is cool. Or funny. Or anything besides insane. Because that’s what this is: insanity.
I’m not even Jewish and I’m still offended. This type of behavior makes me believe that this group of guys would readily play “pin the noose on the n*****,” just as readily as they incorporated an “Anne Frank” cup in their noxious little game of pong. Yes, that happened. No, you can’t just make this stuff up.
Look, the Holocaust has been mined for jokes now for decades, especially by JEWISH comedians. This girl is flat-out ignorant.
That’s Joan Rivers telling a hilarious Holocaust joke. Keep in mind, she steadfastly refused to apologize for it like any good comedian should. I wonder if Ms. Ponder would have had some words for one of the greatest comedians who ever lived? Actually, I’m more caught up in what Rivers might have said about all this. I’m sure she wouldn’t have been very kind to the stuck-up snitch.
See, the thing is, if I were in the presence of a bunch of racist teenage boys, who thought it was a good idea to play drinking games which served as a direct reflection of exactly how racist they are, I wouldn’t hesitate to let them know that they’re being racist. But what’s odd is that here, there are Jewish kids partaking in the game.* I kid you not- I went to one of these guy’s bar mitzvah. I think what’s most confusing to me is that they chose to participate in this heinous, anti-Semitic activity as opposed to trying to shut it down. I don’t get it.
Now they’re racist for playing a game they didn’t even invent. I hope this girl doesn’t go into education. We have enough of her bullshit thinking in academia as it is.
And on top of that, why does the implication that this is even remotely okay exist in the first place? Who is permitting these deranged ideologies to develop and materialize in the form of beer pong? We are. Evidently, as a society, we have gone wrong in some way, shape or form. Because the moment that the Holocaust became a running joke was the moment that ignorance outweighed intellect- and that is the death of compassion for human life.
As I said above, no one jokes about the Holocaust more than Jews themselves. Perhaps you should try getting a sense of humor as well, Jamaica? Although, your post is pretty funny…for all the wrong reasons.
I know I’m not the only one who saw this Snapchat story. Yet here I am, the only one saying anything about it. I am unsure as to what’s worse: the static silence from my peers, or the fact that this happened in the first place.
Yea, that’s because most people took it for the joke it was. And even if they didn’t, they had the good sense not to violate the trust of a friend in order to try and score SJW points.
This is indefensible. You can’t make excuses for stuff like this, just like you can’t make excuses for the KKK or 9/11 or the slaughter of 6 million people. Some things are just bad, and this is one of them. Maybe you think I’m overreacting, or that I don’t know how to take a joke. If this is the joke, if this is supposed to be funny- well then you’ll have to excuse me because I simply cannot drink to that.
Something is certainly indefensible, but it’s not this friendly game of beer pong. You sold out your friends for some cheap outrage media and now you want a pat on the back for it? You might get it from a few sheep, but most people know what you did was wrong. Then again, I see that you have some sort of modeling career you want to jump off. Perhaps this was you trying to get more publicity for that. No one likes a tattletale, though. This probably isn’t going to help your endeavors there.
Plus, let me be the first to tell you: That modeling career isn’t going to pan out, dear.
Oh, and here’s a little nugget I found from her student government profile…
I know you’re just as shocked as I am. Almost every single time you can count on these fruitcakes circling back around to radical feminism.
So, to recap, a nutty young rad fem thought it was a good idea to snitch on her friends and fellow student government leaders in order to score points with the social justice mobs on the internet and in the media (the police are now involved, that’s how far this has gone). She’s now going to be a pariah among all non-cucked students for the rest of her time at Princeton High School, but hey, at least she’s getting her 15 minutes of fame!
