'Teen People' Magazine Still Running Whitewash of Neo-Nazi TeensBreaking News
The duo, known as "Prussian Blue," are 13 year-old twin sisters Lynx and Lamb Gaede, who wear Hitler t-shirts, deny the Holocaust, and frequently perform at neo-Nazi events. According to media reports, Teen People was planning to run a feature profile them in its February issue, but had promised to refrain from using the words "hate," "supremacist," and "Nazi" in the article. A web site preview of the article referred to the twins' beliefs only as "white pride." The upcoming article and the preview have been withdrawn, according to the magazine's publisher, Time Inc. (New York Post, Nov. 23, 2005)
But the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies has determined that Teen People is continuing to run another sanitized story about the Gaede twins on its web site--
The Wyman Institute is urging Time Inc to withdraw this story.
Wyman Institute director Dr. Rafael Medoff said: "Time Inc. did the right thing by canceling the upcoming story whitewashing these neo-Nazi singers. But that wise decision is undermined by the continued presence on the Teen People web site of another article that fails to identify the Gaede sisters as racists and Holocaust-deniers. During the 1930s, too many in the news media failed to report accurately on the violent and racist nature of Adolf Hitler and his followers. We dare not repeat that tragic mistake."
Visitors to the "Teen People Plus" section of Teen People's web site still find a November 15, 2005 article about the twins which calls them only "white separatists" and fails to use the words "hate," "supremacist," or "Nazi." The article does not explain what it means by "white separatists," does not identify the girls as racists, and makes no mention of their admiration for Hitler or their denial of the Holocaust. It says they have "performed at separatist rallies all over the country," without explaining the racist and neo-Nazi nature of those rallies. A poll attached to the article asks readers only, "Do you think the girls are embracing this message because of their parents?" --without explaining what "this message" is.

Thank God someone is on top of this story. Heaven forbid "white pride" recording artists ever be given the ground to record for the mainstream popular culture.
Well, excuse me now. I have to go listen to my latest Rap CD, the one where "NIGGAAAAA!!!" is screamed 94 times on 8 tracks, and where "bitches" are good for nothing but raping, and where 12 year-old ghetto punks are encouraged to "cap the white man in blue" over and over and over again. It was recorded by an African-American minority-owned studio and marketed by a Jewish-owned distribution company so you can be rest assured that only good wholesome racist hatred is contained on this CD, and not the politically incorrect kind of hatred you find on those "white pride" CDs.
