Over the last 1.5 years or so I'd become pretty good friends, in a superficial guy-buddy kind of way, with a man from an ex-Eastern Block country. He's extremely well educated, successful and worldly and decent. Or so I thought. Scene - inside my man cave last night, everyone armed. This guy, "Bill", and another friend of mine, "Fred", and I had put a good dent in bottle of MacAllan 15 Fine Oak and the conversation drifted to politics, economics, and such. All good so far. Then I brought up oil, that led to the current Israeli/Palestinian conundrum. And then Fred mentioned his several years of service in the IDF and his life in Israel. Bill without any hesitation segues into a tired and bankrupt rant about the holocaust being over blown with maybe 50,000 total Jews gassed etc. Jews are scheming scum bags who trick and seduce everyone else into a kind of passive enslavement blah, blah, blah - AND HE WOULD NOT STOP. I asked him to stop. And again. And again. After maybe 20/30 seconds of Julius Sctreicher quality BS NAZI speak Fred got up, looked at me and said, "I'm leaving". I said, "no you are not Bill is". To which Bill said, "if I leave now 'WE WILL NEVER SPEAK AGAIN'". I walked him to the door. I'm still pissed. 1. I'm shocked I had no inkling that Bill was a super bigot and NAZI admiring holocaust denier. 2. Fred was very cool about it all afterwards.
