Britain - Your Slip is Showing

Most have heard about the ban on Piglet and banks that have stopped giving out piggy banks in order to appease not to offend Muslims. However, there seems to be a least one group that it's ok to offend and may I say be discriminatory to, that is Jews. British society has long had a streak of anti-Semitism and today it is being disguised as anti-Zionism(anti-Israel). However, their slip has been showing lately, especially with the following:

A poem which praises the murder of Jews by the Nazis has been included in a book of children's poetry to be distributed amongst schools in the UK.

The publication, entitled Great Minds, features the work of school children aged 11 to 18 who won a nationwide literary competition.

But one poem has generated outrage amongst Jewish groups, politicians and Holocaust charities for its anti-Semitic content.

The entry by the 14-year-old Gideon Taylor is apparently written from the viewpoint of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

It includes the lines Jews are here, Jews are there, Jews are almost everywhere, filling up the darkest places, evil looks upon their faces.

Another part reads: Make them take many paces for being one of the worst races, on their way to a gas chamber, where they will sleep in their mangerÂ… I'll be happy Jews have died. American Thinker


I find such a poem very offensive and a slap in the face to all those who were killed by Hitler, including distant family members that were killed in the Ukraine. The publishers go on to defend this crap by saying that the technical writing is very good and that it shows emphaty with Hitler. Who in God's name would even want to empathize with Hitler? What are those parents of this 11-18 year old child teaching him? Why is this sick drivel being allowed in a publication that is being distributed throughout schools in the UK?

Britain your anti-Semitism slip is showing and it is not pretty. At least in the US when we have mindless, hateful drivel such as http://www.prussianblue.net/ Prussian Blue, we do not foist it upon all the school age children over here. In fact we condemn it and shake our heads over parents that would raise their children with such hate and contempt.

I don't know what makes me more angry; the "poem" itself or the vile idiots who allow such things happen.
