I guess even Germans are brainless these pc days

I am not a fan of this music so I don’t care except for the dumb PC thinking behind it all.

So the guy got a dumb assed Nazi tattoo when he was young. It’s on his chest so who’s going to see it anyway?  There are no bare chested scenes I’m aware of in Wagner or any classical opera I can think of.  But some newspaper prints the story and oh my.  End of the world.

Wagner was no great friend of the Jewish people but then neither were very many people in Europe in his day and after.  Whatcha gonna do?
Boycott every place he ever visited? Oh, we can’t piss by that roadside. Wagner was there 100 yrs ago.

So anyway, this festival which was up and running before the Nazis, but because Hitler was a fan and supported the event, it’s tainted and this fellow withdraws because of a tat on his chest that nobody can see.

I guess you have to read the short article.  Mind numbing stupidity. But hey.  It keeps Hitler and the Nazis alive.  Think about that.


Opera singer with swastika pulls out of German concert at festival with links to Nazism

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

A Russian opera singer has pulled out as a lead star in this year’s Bayreuth Festival in Germany because it has been revealed he has a Swastika tattoo.

Yevgeny Nikitin said the offensive tattoo was a mistake and something he did when he was a member of a heavy metal band as a teenager.

He said he quit the concert because the German media had drawn attention to it.

The heavily tattooed singer was going to debut in the lead role of a new production of the Flying Dutchman opera on Wednesday but organisers have since confirmed he is no longer taking part.

The festival only features works by 19th Century composer Richard Wagner and has a complicated past with the Nazi regime.

Wagner often expressed anti-Semitic views himself and his daughter-in-law, Winifred Wagner, who headed the festival during the Nazi rule was a strong admirer of Adolf Hitler.

Hitler also regularly attended the festivals during his dictatorship and helped fund it.

‘I was not aware of the extent of the irritation and offence these signs and symbols would cause, particularly in Bayreuth given the context of the festival’s history,’ Nikitin said to the DPA news agency.

‘I had them done in my youth. It was a big mistake and I wish I’d never done it.’

The row over the tattoo, which shows a Swastika on Nikitin’s chest, started when a programme on German TV mentioned them in a report about him on Friday.

The singer chose to pull out of the festival after organisers confronted him, a statement on the festival’s website said.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
