The smiling new faces of racist hate.
The week's news at a glance.
Pretty twin girls singing sweetly about the evils of blacks and Jewsit sounds like a sick joke, said Anne Meyer-Gatermann in Munichs Süddeutsche Zeitung. But in the U.S., where theres no law against glorifying Hitler, its all too real. Blonde 13-year-old twins Lamb and Lynx Gaede preach purity for the white race in their incarnation as pop act Prussian Blue. The California girls were home-schooled by their viciously racist mother, who taught them that the Holocaust was a myth. Indoctrinating kids with such white supremacist propaganda amounts to ideological child abuse and would be punishable with jail terms in Germany, but it is perfectly legal in California. The girls younger sister is actually named Dresden, after the city where so many German civilians died in Allied firebombing during World War II. Thankfully, Prussian Blue doesnt have much of a following. When the girls tried to donate money to only white victims of Hurricane Katrina, they could find very few whites willing to accept their charity. Even in an angelic-looking package, a message of hate is a tough sell.
