Students at La Quinta High School, in So Cal’s Coachella Valley have been amusing themselves playing a game called “Beat the Jew”. In the “game”, a runner is called a “Jew” and chased by groups of people in cars called “Nazis”.
‘The objective for the Jew is to run down Hwy. 111 to a specified checkpoint before the Nazis can catch up to him, tackle him down and capture him,’ according to a Facebook page that was taken down on Friday.
La Quinta, incredibly, is known as one of the better schools in the Valley:
‘We only have three weeks until there’s not much you can do about it,’ said the 18-year-old La Quinta High student who alerted officials to the game and Facebook page promoting it. She has asked to remain anonymous and is staying home from school out of fear of retribution.
‘Some of these kids that have joined the group, they’re like the cream of the crop of my class,’ she said. ‘They’re going to be the leaders of our future and they feel this way?’
Desert Sands Unified School District Superintendent Sharon McGehee displayed the twisted view of the First Amendment endemic to liberals:
‘(It’s) their freedom of speech; there’s not much we can do except be disappointed,’ Desert Sands Unified School District Superintendent Sharon McGehee said, adding that many students apologized.
The kids set the game up on Facebook, thus the school has excused itself from any responsibility other than to drag kids through more “diversity training.”
The most bizarre reaction came from the local police department spokesman who seems to think the kids were chasing Jews around in real cars:
Indio police spokesman Ben Guitron said that, assuming all people playing the game are willing participants, whether any criminal wrongdoing had been committed would depend on if participants using vehicles were following traffic laws.
‘If they’re driving, are they obeying the speed laws? Are they driving erratically?’ he said. ‘Are they blowing lights? Are they speeding to get to them? Then there are going to be complications.’
The question nobody is asking is where did these students learn such disregard for Jews? Do any of them have parents at all?
The student who blew the whistle is staying home from school out of fear of retaliation and says she has received more negative than positive reaction to her decision.
Imagine the hue and cry from all quarters if the game had been “Beat the Muslim” instead.
