An Kentucky man claims he was treated unfairly when he brought his five-year-old son trick-or-treating in a Hitler costume.
Bryant Golbach showed up at Halloween event in a full Nazi soldier costume, while his young son wore a swastika armband and Hitler-style mustache.
In a Facebook post that has since been removed, Golbach complained that people were making "snide remarks" and "screaming obscenities" and scaring his son.
"Tonight as we walked we saw people dressed as murderers, devils, serial killers, blood and gore of all sorts. Nobody batted an eye. But my little boy and I, dress as historical figures, and it merits people not only making snide remarks, but approaching us and threatening my 5 year old boy...
Yes, liberalism is alive and well. And we had the dis-pleasure of dealing with the fruits of the so called 'Tolerant Left.'"
Golbach has since apologized and called his decision "bad judgement".
Rabbi Gary Mazo of Temple Adath B'nai Israel, which serves Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, issued a statement on Goldbach's controversial costume:
"The fact that the father apologized is important; the fact he did not know the costumes would be offensive is a very sad reflection on our society…
If the purpose of Halloween is to have fun — bigotry, anti-Semitism and racism are not fun. That should be common sense. This is not being 'politically correct' this is simply being respectful, understanding and kind."
