Really complex situation here that I’m still trying to process and will try to explain as easily as possible. I’ve recently gotten a lot more into my Judaism and picked up the hobby of disc golfing. This weekend there was a tournament with a group of people following the event called “the double 8’s”. From my understanding there is a few traditional golf crowd that gather at the 8th hole to be a bit more rowdy than classic golf crowds.
My issue is with the name of the group and the coverage that the disc golf network gave them. For anyone who doesn’t know, the 8th letter of the alphabet is H so some antisemites use 88 as “hail hitler”. I don’t know what to think on this and just need some other inputs.
