Kamala Harris’ Husband Deletes Post After Getting Mocked For Not Understanding Hanukkah

via C-SPAN

Doug Emhoff, Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband, faced criticism and deleted a social media post that inaccurately portrayed the story of Hanukkah.

Emhoff’s version that he posted on social media is being called “false” by critics, including established Democrats.

The true account reportedly involves the Maccabees, a group of Jewish warriors revolting against the Seleucid Empire. (Trending: Tucker Carlson Reveals ‘Secret’ Project He’s Been Working On For Months)

The Maccabees won, rededicated the temple, and the menorah’s oil miraculously burned for eight days.

“In the Hanukkah story, the Jewish people were forced into hiding,” wrote Emhoff in the now-deleted post.

“No one thought they would survive or that the few drops of oil they had would last,” he continued.

“But they survived and the oil kept burning. During those eight days in hiding, they recited their prayers and continued their traditions.”

“That’s why Hanukkah means dedication,” wrote the Vice President’s husband.

“It was during those dark nights that the Maccabees dedicated themselves to maintaining hope and faith in the oil, each other, and their Judaism. In these dark times, I think of that story.”

Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said, “I know you’re trying but the story of Chanukah is important and should be recounted accurately.”

Adding, “This isn’t close.”

“The rewriting of Hanukkah as a story of Jews hiding rather than Jews fighting against assimilation is absurd, but also very revealing about the attitude of the left,” contributed National Review editor Philip Klein.

The incident sparked reactions, with some emphasizing the importance of accurately recounting the Hanukkah story.
