Light of Mind and Heart

The endless drip drip of ethical turpitude exhibits it’s logical outcome - Houseswitz, writes AP’s Jocelyn Gecker:

«PARIS (AP) -- An Internet video that depicts the Nazi death camp Auschwitz as a rave party drew sharp criticism Wednesday from a Jewish rights group, which urged authorities to have it removed from European Web sites.

The three-minute video titled "Housewitz" - a pun on house music and Auschwitz - casts Nazi soldiers as DJs. It alternates black-and-white still photos of Holocaust atrocities with color images of youths at an outdoor party. And it advertises a "Free taxi ride home," showing a wheelbarrow full of corpses.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center's European office denounced the video as "outrageous," saying it goes "beyond the bounds of freedom of expression to an unprecedented level of obscenity."
The center asked the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe to call on countries where Web sites have posted the video to "immediately stop the spread of this pernicious nihilism."»

Consistent with the new know-nothing-ness that has all the depth of that impenetrably stupid trucker hat craze:
«The Dutch Web site, Geenstijl, says it's doing nothing wrong in posting the video. The site, whose name means "no style," says it mixes news with "light subjects and pleasantly twisted nonsense»
If you say “come on, they’re just kids” you’re projecting. They’re in their twenties, and hardly kids at all, but probably as grown-up as you can expect from EUtopians. They are also supposed to be the product of an über-enlightened world class über-education, replete with sensitivity training, environmental awareness, and multi-cultural dogma worthy of a Stalinist re-education camp.

Sicker still is GeenStijl’s item heading: „Tanzen macht frei!

Vielen Dank, Herr Wei
