For example, those Jews at Gawker (because after all, everyone involved MUST be Jewish: it is funny, NY-based, and about the media, the trifecta of Jewish influence) hate hipsters with a passion. Although they were surprisingly gentle to these Jewish hipsters.
On the McSweeney's website, contributer Michael Schulman has thoughtfully created a list of Jewish Holidays for Hipsters. I think that my favorite is Ironukkah. The list somewhat tangentially reminds of a joke told by my younger brother:
Q: How do you defeat emo?
Evanston Jew suggests that Jewish Hipster culture is at its base a facade. A successful facade, but one nonetheless. He claims that it will not be long until people will be "Yeshivish at home, hipster in public." I'm not really clear on the distinction that he is drawing between the "derivative" culture of bangitout, the Latke-Hamantasch festival and the Jewish Hipster scene. He seems to have nothing but disdain for the culture, comments on its success aside.
On the other side Minister of Rants claims that hipster Jews really get into Yom Kippur, and lists how:
"The hipster’s synagogue outfit of choice: sneakers (vans,converse,crocs) with a suit; And there’s the opportunity to stick it to the man and wear white after Labor Day;You get to dress in layers (Tallis, Kittel, Suit, Tzitzit)Your hair looks best unwashed and lack of shower maximizes your cowlicks; Most of davening is about self exploration and confession. Can you say emo?Fasting can't hurt that whole waif-look thing you’re tryin’ to get going…"
In his post on the etymology of "Hip Hip Hurray" Cecil Adams claims that the term"hip" has anti-Semitic origins, but steps back from claiming the hipsters themselves are "jew-baiters." However, if many hipsters agree with Will from KABOBfest's view of Tony Judt as his "new hero" I might just have to hold them in as much disdain as Gawker does.
