Skip to comments.Strange Foreigners - Crazy Asian College Students View Hitler As a Superhero
Posted on 07/22/2013 8:08:39 AM PDT by pinochet
Students in a prestigious university in Thailand, recently painted a mural depicting their favorite Western superheros. These include Superman, Batman, the Hulk, Captain America....and....Hitler.
Here is a link to the crazy story: http://www.3news.co.nz/Superman-Batman-Hitler/tabid/417/articleID/305117/Default.aspx
A couple of year ago, the Telegraph, a British newspaper, had a story about how Hitler, Nazi clothing, and Nazi memorabilia were very fashionable among youth in Asia. The article was titled: "Nazi chic: from Mongolia to Tel Aviv, angry teenagers think Hitler is cool" http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/damianthompson/100049486/nazi-chic-from-mongolia-to-tel-aviv-angry-teenagers-think-hitler-is-cool/
But given the Israel-bashing that goes on in American and European universities, are Western youth able to educate Asian youth on the evils of anti-semitism?
"Oh, no, they took out the Hitler building!"
No doubt the same bunch that finds My Little Pony sexually arousing.
Why should we expect the history courses in Thailand to be superior to ours? Hitler schmidtler... Kate’s gonna pop a cub and I got Facebook to update before the Trayvon demonstration.
Do these idiots in Thailand not realize that they would have been on Hitler’s list to eliminate?
there is a British royal who liked to play NAZI... and one who likes to hold cocaine sex parties with hookers
such upstanding people
” A couple of year ago, the Telegraph, a British newspaper, had a story about how Hitler, Nazi clothing, and Nazi memorabilia were very fashionable among youth in Asia.”
Well Hitler was a huge supporter of youth in Asia, wasn’t he?
This is ancient history to these kids, like dressing up as Julius Caesar. It shouldn't be, but it is. And Santayana was right - we who forget history are prone to repeating it. Could a flamboyant, well-funded, radical figurehead with all the latest media techniques backing him ever take power in the United States? Sorry, rhetorical question.
Notice the story talks about teenagers - not the adults of the country. Teenagers like to get a rise out of their parents. We have teenagers here in the US who think the Boston Bomber is sexy - not many grown-ups feel the same way... (Well maybe the folks at the FBI who want to ‘reach out’ to radical Muslims.)
“Do these idiots in Thailand not realize that they would have been on Hitlers list to eliminate?”
Thailand was Axis.
Useful idiots. Hitler certainly didn't want any Asians to clutter up the whole master race thing.
Asians don’t seem to believe that.
If they like Hitler, they’ll LOVE obama.
Many of them already do. They probably will until they have to defend their shops, or something similar, from other, more confused people, like they did in Los Angeles. Support of the current resident of our White House didn’t help Zimmerman, they might take note.
Then they obviously don't have a clue what Hitler was all about. (Or they're just self-destructive - sort of like Jews who support Democrats.)
