Hitler gagdets in Britain and Poland?

Today's popconsumerist establishment seems to be confirming Lenin's words that 'the capitlaists will sell us the rope on which we hang them.'
Nowadays it's anything goes, esp. anything for a buck and anything for publciity (shades of Kitty Riot).? Respect, taste, decorum, consideration, propriety, ethics and even common sense be damned!

I wonder if this would be allowed under Polish law. It wouldn't, but would it be prosecuted and how?

This is just the same as comedians making jokes about Hitler and Jews on the TV. It's called a Sick Joke

In countries like Germany, Poland and Israel this might be completely unacceptable but not here.

In otherr words you're saying that Britain has no specirfic law penalising the propagation or glorificaton of totalitarian systems. The Polish one is phrased roughly that way, if I recall. Is not having such a ban a sign of true freedom or an indciation that society is too stupid, blasé or insensitive to react?

More a case of it not happening enough to be much of an issue.That and freedom of political opinion.There obviously are people who favour things like that, however the expression of their views would need to generate widespread offence before anything happened.

Yes,because any such law would be a totalitarian law in and of itself.
However, wear a Hitler World Tour T shirt in Leeds,Manchester or North London(large Jewish areas...) and see how long it is before you get arrested on incitment to racial hatred charges

The T-shirt is not racist and does not promote racism. It's just in very poor taste. I think the ragementioned by the newspaper is just the usual journalistic hyperbole. btw, it's not a gadget; it's a T-shirt. Beware of false friends.

Nowadays it's anything goes

I clearly remember those Hitler European Tour shirts from the mid 1980s.

I don't think they suggest any politically opinionated stance, they seem to just be humorous but in really, really poor taste.

I'd probably tell anyone I knew wearing them not to.

Didn't impropriety, disrespect, irreverence, poor tatse of low morals come into their own and start becoming 'cool' and 'trendy' amoing the airheads of that day during the royal jubilee 'F---- the Queen' nonsense which coinicded with all the cheap, publicity-seeking rock scandalmongering and Monty-Pythonesque crapola? The offspring of those airheads are probably the ones ready to glorify the desecration of relgious shrines by some two-bit punk-slut trio.

Hitler was clinically insane.. we should feel sorry for him

And Stalin was criminally insane. May he and Hitler (and Mao and Pol Pot and a few otherrs) burn in hell... na wieki wieków. Amen!

I wouldn't be so sure, reincarnated to do his bidding, even the devil is not foolish enough to waste good talent.

yeah but the problem is, even the devil couldn't compete them in doing his work.

Ever heard of teamwork? I'm sure he'll find a way to screw them over at the end but for time being?

they weren't exactly team workers but anyone of them, was a perfectionist when it comes to doing devil's work.

Yet they managed to assemble a hell of a team to accomplish their objective. They didn't do all that by themselves you know. Ribbentrop-Molotov pact comes to mind, team players or not? I'm really torn on this issue, help me out here please! Enlighten me.

PS We're kinda getting off topic here. I'd rather discuss Hitlers' gadgets (now that would be interesting) although a tea-shirt I would classify as memorabilia myself even if it's portrayed as a joke. There are nutters out there who do take it seriously.

I do, too. As with all WW2 stuff: they come up with the same crap over and over and over again.

Hitler wine is on sale in Italy. Along with a Hitler Schnapps and hip flask gift set.

look at the outcome of it. They only kept together long enough to achieve what they wanted and then turned on each other.
