Devil’s Night, Detroit, Halloween, Zombie Parents & Slutty Kids Costumes (Billy Ray Cyrus Crummy Dad Alert)

By Debbie Schlussel

So, tomorrow is Halloween.

Is Noah Cyrus’ Inappropriate Costume a Dominatrix Outfit?

But tonight is Devil’s Night, a holiday I’m told is only, um, “celebrated” in D-Mecca a/k/a Detroit.  You see, on the night before Halloween, there are regularly several dozen homes set on fire by gangs, squatters, druggies–and occasionally anonymous vigilante neighbors tired of gang and druggie squatters living in decrepit abandoned homes in their neighborhood (can’t say I blame them).  Under the mayorship of late Detroit Mayor Coleman Young, there were regularly hundreds of fires in Detroit on Devil’s Night, over 400 of them at the height of things.  So bad it was that recent Rush Limbaugh biographer and former Detroiter Ze’ev Chafetz wrote a great book on it, “Devil’s Night: And Other True Tales of Detroit.”

But Detroit’s  politically correct politicians and mainstream media refuse to call it Devil’s Night.  Instead, they have a nice euphemism, “Angel’s Night,” pretending that all is well in Detroit and that few fires will be set there.  But, in fact, cop friends of mine in Detroit tell me that each year, the city and the media lie about the actual number of such arson fires.  They’ve sent me photos of burning homes and police reports.

So, I’m taking bets.  How many fires do you think will be set to homes tonight?  It’s raining a lot here in Detroit, so I’m lowering my estimate of the arsons that will happen, only due to that precipitation.  Normally, I’d predict 40 fires.  But with the rain, maybe ten arson fires.  We’ll see, and I’ll try to report back on it.


Then, there’s the issue of parents and their kids.  Check out the “Zits” comic strip, above, by caroonists Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman.  It purports to show that Zombies would make the kind of permissive and do nothing parents a kid would love to have.  But I think the cartoon is ironic because, sadly, as I’ve noted on this site, far too many parents are like Zombies.  So, they really need to change this caroon to “Six Reasons Why Parents Would Make Cool Zombies.”

And speaking of “Cool” Zombie Parents on Halloween, take Billy Ray Cyrus, the Pop who designed the stripper pole for his daughter Miley to grind on, on national television.  He’s also the father of Noah, a 9-year-old girl, who has a reality show on her own YouTube channel.  Does a 9-year-old really need a reality show? Only if you’re a bad father. . . like Sean Vannity’s “Great American,” Mr. Cyrus.  But the young girl’s reality show isn’t my issue, today.

It’s slutty Halloween costumes for young girls.  I had a father complain about the costumes marketed to  his young daughter.  And if you look at the brochures of those Halloween stores and marketers, there’s plenty of slutty costumes pimped on kids.  Some parents are up in arm’s with Noah Cyrus’ costume, which they say looks like a dominatrix.  Disney says it refuses to publish the photos in its magazine aimed at girls because of the image it portrays.  I’ve checked out the costume, and, though, I’d never let a 9-year-old daughter wear that costume and it’s inappropriate, I’m not sure it’s that bad.  To me, it doesn’t look like a dominatrix costume, but more like a female vampire outfit.  If anything, the amount of eyeliner and make-up this 9-year-old JonBenet-in-training wears on an average day, well that’s frightening.  Check out these pics, where she and her fat cousin look like they’re auditioning for the role of “Bugsy Malone:  Future Tarts Edition.”

So what do you think?  Is Noah Cyrus’ outfit slutty and dominatrix-esque . . . or just a vampire costume?  Either way, I definitely agree that there are far too many inappropriate costumes for girls.  And that’s where the Zombie Parents come in.  They’re at fault, not the companies who make and sell them . . . though they’re definitely a contributing factor.

I wonder if Mr. Cyrus realizes the amount of child kidnappings, rapes, and murders at the hands of the deviates that love to ogle this sort of stuff. WTF.

About two years ago I’m cleaning out my car and I notice some 8 year olds riding bikes past the house. One of them actually wore a pair of pants with some word stitched on the seat of her pants. My g-d we are in trouble. They’re all over the place.

When I was in the USAF I found myself educating my fellow airmen about the “festival” that is devils night. White flight? Oh yeah the racists left Detroit.(eye roll)

Pimp Daddy Billy Ray strikes again! It’s not so much the costume as it’s the way it’s presented. Just like the pics of her and her cousin in the bathing suits.
“aw honey, yaw’ll look so cute in that outfit…but here, go let yo momma ‘ho’ you up a bit mo…
…there yaw’ll go, now that’s mo like it!”

I can’t wait to see what they’ll do to our religious holidays in future years. Let’s hope the asteroid makes this a very short ride.

So, what is it with Devil’s Night in the Detroit area? I’ve lived in several different states around the country, but only when I lived in Birmingham, MI did we experience “Devil’s Night.”

As for the vampire costume, I agree that the costumes pictures around Miss Cyrus’ costume look like Dominatrix costumes, but hers looks like…a vampire. Not something I’d dress MY child in, but not as bad as suggested. As for the pool party and the Paris Hilton pose in the photos, again, not for MY daughter. I’m pretty sure the girls don’t realize how slutty they look – they just think they look grown up. I wish young girls would have more wholesome role models – but apparently that doesn’t SELL these days. And I know a whole lot of mothers who are complicit in the sluttification of young girls. I was at the mall a couple of years ago and noticed a large gathering of women outside a store. I thought maybe there was a great sale going on, but when I went over and looked, it was a store where they staged “fashion shows” for young girls. The girls were dressed in very slutty clothes, heavy makeup, and were encouraged to “vamp” on the runway. And here were all these mothers standing around cheering and applauding this behavior. Apparently this was quite a venue for little girls’ birthday parties for a while.

OK parents, WAKE UP, GROW UP and let your daughters be innocent little girls for as long as they can. It doesn’t last long, but when it’s gone, it’s gone forever.

The costume is a bit tight…but it doesn’t appear as dominatrix as the other adult costumes, at least she isn’t holding a whip and chains. It is ashame the costume industry doesn’t at least try to appeal to children with more age appropriate costumes like the plastic masks of yesteryear…but it is the parents responsibility to find appropriate costumes for their children and dress them accordingly, just as for everyday attire.

As far as the Devil’s Night in Detroit…that’s scary and unacceptable…can’t understand why they are trying to hide the reality by calling it Angel’s night when that sort of destruction and bad behavior is going on. There is no excuse for the behavior and it should not be watered down in the media. People need to know what’s going on and find ways to deter it…hopefully there won’t be as many this year as you stated.

It looks like a dominatrix outfit to me.

I lost count of the 10 year old prostitute looking costumes last night. One group was about 15 yrs old and had aspirations of being cheerleaders. In the middle of the street like 6 of them dressed slutty doing some drunken cheer. I weep for the future.

OK girl…Halloween is over. Time to come out from under the covers and back to Blogland…we miss you! 🙂

So Debbie, what was the final fire count for Devil’s Night?

arby on November 2, 2009 at 3:42 pm

I’ve done a few google searches and haven’t found a thing on the arson fires for devils night. Media hushing up some bad news? Probably, what else is new?

Joe on November 3, 2009 at 7:58 am

The Cyruses “claim” to be Christian. We NEVER celebrate Halloween.
