On Saturday, Michael Horwitz was arrested after fatally stabbing his father, Dr. Abbey Horwitz, at their home in Virginia Beach.What's offensive besides the drag queen act itself is that the son impersonating women also did an Anne Frank impersonation:
The 34-year-old, who identifies as a transgender woman and goes by the name Norah, has been charged with second-degree murder and stabbing in the commission of a felony.
According to the Virginia Beach Police Department, officers were called to the 1300 block of Wren Place just before 9 am Saturday. When they arrived, they discovered Dr. Horwitz, 68, suffering from "multiple stab wounds." First responders performed emergency medical treatment, but to no avail. He was pronounced dead at 9:13 am.
In their release, the VBPD noted Horwitz's full legal name, but added "Norah" in parentheses. Horwitz was also listed as female and authorities noted that "she" was being held in custody at the Virginia Beach Jail.
According to Reduxx, Horwitz appeared in court on Monday and was assigned a public defender after expressing that as a low-income worker, hiring a lawyer was too expensive.
Dr. Horwitz was a dentist and served as President of the Hebrew Academy of Tidewater and President of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater. The Art of Dentistry, Dr. Horwitz’s practice, said in a biography that he was married to his wife for over 25 years, with the two having three children.
Michael Horwitz was also a drag performer under the name "Menorah Horwitz" in Portland, Oregon. Horwitz wrote a series of stories for the Portland Mercury in June 2017 regarding Pride month.
“Horwitz also published a book titled ‘The Diary of Menorah Horwitz,’ which describes his combination of ‘Judaism and a love of drag in all the wrong ways when he becomes Menorah, Portland’s premiere Anne Frank impersonator,’” the report states, citing a synopsis of the book.That can be considered a form of antisemitism in itself when the creep reduces a serious issue like the Holocaust to cheap sensationalism. If I were an heir/descendant of Frank's family lineage, I'd be outraged at how a pervert desecrated the poor girl's memory for the sake of his sick fantasies. The drag performer's basically indicated he's a self-hating Jew with his horrifying behavior, and will hopefully be locked away in a men's prison for a long time.
It's also disgraceful if the police are profiling him under the female gender, which only rewards his repulsive behavior, and hurts the father's memory even more. We must all offer our condolences to the father's relatives for the terrible situation that's sadly befallen them.
