    Mine only gets better and better as the years go by. Just look at the scorn this story generated in this thread alone. Imagine the collective disdain humanity as a whole must feel.

    It sounds pretty educational to me. Add a bit of a history lesson in with the usual hazing ritual.

    Yea, this happens in high school a lot, along with the 'faggots', the 'nerds', the 'Asians'. It's pretty disgusting...

    The act itself is not, but does it even matter?

    Yeah it does, I mean if they'd called it Pharoahs or Aztes they'd have been fine, the implication is that they choose this because it was an anti-semitic exercise, they felt as the Nazis did, its even the conclusion reached by the originial poster when what I'm seeing is just reference to a historical event.

    Is this another one of those things that cant be talked about? European history has to be shut upon and shut down unless its an exercise in shaming people following your latest blunder in international waters?

    You don't seriously think that the choice of this particular historical event doesn't have a greater chance of implicating anti-semitism than "anti-aztecism" in case of performing a play of ritual sacrifice, right?

    It would be a very naive thing to do so.

    Yeah, I dont see any of the things you're suggesting from either this event or my posts, I see kids at some college who played a dumb game of fugitive and picked the wrong episode from history, I dont see any tacit approval or minimisation of anti-semitism.

    I very much doubt that humanity is going to sweep anything under the carpet but how long until we can discuss Nazi Germany like the French Revolutionary terror or Gulags or anything else?

    Neither do I, since we do not know enough about the case to make such categorical statements.
    But it is pretty safe to assume that the choice of this particular historical event is not casual. As you've implied, they could've chosen thousands of other tragic or controversial events of human history, but they chose "beat the jew" instead.

    This means there is a significantly higher chance of a close relation to anti-semitism in this particular group, and further investigation of their backgrounds is necessary.

    I don't care about what the media picks up, this is not a priority for me in this case. It is more important to determine whether or not this is more than "child's play".

    I dont think its anti-semitic at all, or if it is then its as anti-semitic as Family Guy and its repeated gags about Nazis and the holocaust, the reality is that this was an insensitive game played with what is a pop cultural reference now.

    Perhaps the groups campaigning to keep the lynching of african american slaves have been less successful than groups like the anti-defamation league in keeping historical persecution in the popular memory, otherwise it would have been "beat the slave".

    This will no doubt meet with shock and horror but I'm not worried about holocaust denial, even if the holocaust didnt happen, and I dont personally doubt that it did and most of the arguments made by deniers are about logistics, scale, technicalities, not intent, there was a persecution of European Jews and enough else besides about Nazism which was evil.

    I do have a problem with Nazism and the second world war becoming exclusively Jewish history and something the rest of us should be tight lipped about and ashamed off, there where A LOT of targets for the Nazis besides Jews and they where all marched into the gas chambers.
