Babushkantisemitism

826

Journalist Allison Kaplan Sommer, who is currently in Russia, spotted something disturbing.

I was shopping for souvenirs in Moscow when among the “babushka” dolls, I spotted a Jewish one. “Oh, how cute,” I thought. Then I looked closer. The Jew was clutching …. money!

I opened it up to see if the smaller dolls were anti-Semitic themed as well. Of course they were. A nice greedy family. Yeesh.

Maybe Roger can pick this set up next time he is in Moscow – assumed he didn’t already.
