Police are looking for someone who posted anti-Muslim flyers in a Bensonhurst apartment complex. According to an NYPD spokesperson, a 65-year-old woman called police shortly after midnight on Saturday to report that the flyer pictured above was posted on the wall across from her apartment. Officers canvassed the area and found more of the flyers tacked up across the residential complex on 21st Drive.
Petula Dvorak has posted an excellent commentary on the Washington Post’s website about Pamela Geller’s recent anti Muslim bus ad campaign featuring the monster. This is also a pretty good commentary on Godwins in general.
I would like my D6 bus without a side of Hitler, please.
Twenty Metro buses are crisscrossing the nation’s capital with Der Führer on their sides for the next month, thanks to an incendiary, anti-Muslim ad campaign by the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
The westbound D6 featured a PNC Bank ad early Monday. Whew. But Shanna Dick is ready for Hitler’s face if it ever appears on that route.
“I just want to draw a big crucifix over his face, so I don’t have to look at it,” said Dick, 44. “Two wrongs don’t make a right. Hell isn’t big enough for him. And the side of a city bus isn’t the right place for that kind of evil, either.”
Adolf Hitler is a little too present these days.

Anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller is outraged that the USC Shoah Foundation, a genocide history project founded by Steven Spielberg, is giving an award to President Obama at its upcoming “Ambassadors for Humanity” gala.
Geller, who believes Obama is “single-handedly paving the way for the next holocaust,” told WorldNetDaily that the award “is illustrative of the willful blindness of liberal Jews” who have “traded their religion” and “traded G-d (and their morality)” for political clout.
“Shame on Steve Spielberg for rendering ‘never again’ an empty slogan, devoid of meaning,” she said.
WND editor Joseph Farah, evangelist Ray Comfort and Laurie Cardoza Moore of the Christian Zionist group Proclaiming Justice to the Nations also denounced the USC Shoah Foundation, likening the group to Nazi appeasers.
Our own Vicious Babushka said it best.
For Geller and the rest of these idiots, just replace “on twitter” with “on the internet.”
A southern California school district has agreed to revise an assignment that asked eighth-graders to debate in writing whether the Holocaust actually happened.
Middle-school students in the Rialto Unified School District were asked to research arguments made about the Holocaust and write an argumentative essay explaining whether they believe the Nazis, in fact, systematically killed 6 million European Jews between 1933 and 1945.
School officials initially defended the assignment, saying it was intended to teach teens to evaluate the quality of evidence made by opponents or advocates of a topic.
“When tragic events occur in history, there is often debate about their actual existence,” the assignment says. “For example, some people claim the Holocaust is not an actual historical event, but instead is a propaganda tool that was used for political and monetary gain.”
Students are required to cite textual evidence in the assignment and address rebuttals to the claims they make themselves.
“Explain whether or not you believe the Holocaust was an actual event in history, or merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain,” the students are advised.
The Los Angeles-based Anti-Defamation League criticized the assignment, which was made last month, on Friday and expressed its concerns to Rialto Unified’s interim superintendent, Mohammad Z. Islam.
“An exercise asking students to question whether the Holocaust happened has no academic value,” said Matthew Friedman, associate regional director of the ADL’s Los Angeles office.
He said the assignment helps to legitimize “hateful and anti-Semitic promoters of Holocaust denial.”
“It is also very dangerous to ask junior high school students to question the reality of the Holocaust on their own, given the sheer volume of denial websites out there,” Friedman said.
He said it would have been better to show the voluminous evidence related to the Holocaust to question why some people still question its reality.
TEACH THE CONTROVERSY!!!!
CREATION VS EVOLUTION
VACCINATION VS DEADLY CHILDHOOD DISEASES
SOCIALISM VS FREE MARKET
UNIONS VS. SWEATSHOPS
SLAVERY: GOOD OR BAD FOR “THE NEGRO”?
BENGHAZI VS 9/11, WHICH WAS WORSE?
Its really sad when a gesture like this causes outrage.

JERUSALEM — Professor Mohammed S. Dajani took 27 Palestinian college students to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland a few weeks ago as part of a project designed to teach empathy and tolerance. Upon his return, his university disowned the trip, his fellow Palestinians branded him a traitor and friends advised a quick vacation abroad.
Dajani said he expected criticism. “I believe a trip like this, for an organized group of Palestinian youth going to visit Auschwitz, is not only rare, but a first,” he said. “I thought there would be some complaints, then it would be forgotten.”
But the trip was explosive news to some, perhaps more so because it took place as U.S.-brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians were in danger of collapse, and emotion surrounding the decades-old conflict is high.
Controversy was also heightened by rumors — untrue — that the trip was paid for by Jewish organizations. It was paid for by the German government.
I always knew the Nazis would hate B.J. Blazkowicz, after all he’s killed well over a thousand of them, and even Hitler himself in the first game’s universe. Now It seems that the they would have hated him even more.
There’s been speculation for more than two decades that the hero of the iconic Wolfenstein first-person shooter games—B.J. Blazkowicz, the guy who you use to machine gun hordes of Nazis—was Jewish. But the game’s creators have long been coy about the character’s origins. Not so much anymore.
It’s not clear if the next Wolfenstein game, slated for release on May 20 from Machine Games and Bethesda Softworks, will be explicit about it. When we last saw the game, it appeared to avoid the topic directly despite making a reference to Blazkowicz being able to read Hebrew and forcing an undercover Blazkowicz to stomach the prattling of Nazis about people with “pure blood”. Admittedly we saw only a thin slice of the game and, for all we know, the full, new Wolfenstein might be more explicit.
The three major Axis powers — Germany, Japan, and Italy — committed a host of catastrophic errors during the war. But some of these miscalculations were considerably worse than others. Here are the most significant blunders made by the Axis during WWII.

Late last year we told you about the 8 worst mistakes made by the Allies during the war. Time now to turn our attention to the most serious mistakes made by Axis planners. The list, which is ordered (somewhat) chronologically, addresses planning and strategic errors rather than operational ones.

As we approach a time when there will be no more survivors, focus is intensifying on recording their stories and learning the lessons of then - for now
Last week a Conservative Party investigation found MP Aidan Burley had “caused deep offence” by organising a Nazi-themed stag party and buying an SS uniform for the groom. Members of the group reportedly chanted: “Mein Fuhrer”, “Himmler” and “Eichmann” and toasted the Third Reich.
Mr Burley, who was forced to resign as a ministerial aide, is not anti-Semitic. Nothing he has said or done before or since suggests otherwise. This was simply a stupid, badly-judged stunt. Any 10-year-old, let alone an MP, should have damn well known better.
What’s most troubling is that his idiotic behaviour says something much more worrying about wider society.
