ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A veteran New York Assemblyman on Monday stood by his decision to wear blackface makeup, an Afro wig and a basketball jersey to a costume party in the face of criticism he called "political correctness to the absurd."
For non-New Yorkers who may not be familiar with this clown, Dov Hikind is the stupidest leader in the local Jewish community. He is on the wrong side of everything. When I had a hand in getting NYC's gay rights bill passed in 1986, Dov Hikind was one of our most virulent enemies. He's also really, really stupid and is a bit of a Mrs. Malaprop, often saying things in a confused and graceless way.
Said Hikind about the uproar: "This is political correctness to the absurd. There is not a prejudiced bone in my body." The man is a world-class fool. Extra bonus:
Earlier this month, Hikind criticized the fashion designer John Galliano, who was recently photographed in New York City dressing as a Hasid with a long jacket and curly sidelocks...Hikind demanded an explanation from Galliano for his costume.
You can't make this stuff up. The man is a colossal fool. That he's still clamoring for attention after all these years is amazing.
