    Adolf Hitler golf art in Blackpool 'tasteless'

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-19254556



    The Hitler statue raises its arm in salute when a ball goes through it

    Art work in a Lancashire gallery depicting Adolf Hitler as a crazy golf ornament is "tasteless", a British Jewish organisation has said.
    The Jake and Dinos Chapman work is a statue of the Nazi dictator which salutes when a ball passes through it.
    The Board of Deputies of British Jews' Michael Samuels said the work, on display in Blackpool, had "absolutely no artistic value whatsoever".
    Gallery curator Stuart Tulloch said the work was a chance to "ridicule" Hitler.
    The Chapman brothers' art forms part of the Grundy Art Gallery's Adventureland Golf exhibition, which features art works as holes on a crazy golf course.
    Other holes depict an animated statue of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, a boarded-up library and a desert island.
    The gallery described it as placing "the powerful image of the Nazi regime within the context of holiday fun and in doing so making reference to the British wartime spirit of making humour at the Fuhrer's expense".
    Mr Samuels said he did not know how depicting Hitler had "anything to do with Blackpool or with art".
    "He's not somebody that you would make a joke of - Hitler was responsible for the murders of many millions of people," he said.
    "I am appalled that the gallery would stoop to show an item like this which, in my opinion, has got absolutely no artistic value whatsoever.
    "If I were the gallery, I would give it back to the artists and tell them to keep it in the shed."
    Mr Tulloch said the art work's inclusion in the exhibition allowed the examination of the issue around it.
    He said Hitler had been defeated and the statue "gives us the chance now to ridicule him".
    He added that visitors to the exhibition had "taken it in the spirit that it is intended".

    International Jewry does itself no favours, yet again. Some disaffected old man who was never able to move on.....

    Australians wear Japanese watches and drive Toyotas and reckon Japlanders are okay. Their inhuman treatment of civilians and POWs alike during the building of the Burma railroad was an absolute atrocity, but it was 70 years ago for Christ sake, and Japan has evolved...just as has Germany.

    Someone should grab Mr Samuels by the nuts, give him a bloody good shake and tell him to shut his stupid gob.

    that always gets me. how the fuck can they tell you in one breath that millions of Jews were sent there in trains where they were sent to the showers, they say and then gassed ? This guy spent 4 years in a so called " Death camp " Some people managed to get sent to 4 or 5 of them for crying out loud.
    It may well be tasteless but something to be outraged over it isn't. i just wish whining Jews would give it a rest now. They have had over 70 years harping on about it all.
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !

    A song with absolutely no musical merit at all.

    To the tune of Colonel Bogey:

    Hitler has only got one ball
    The other is in the Albert Hall
    His mother,
    The dirty bugger
    Cut it off when he was small
    She put it in a chestnut tree,
    And farted it way out to sea,
    Where the fishes,
    Cleaned the dishes,
    And had scollops,
    And bollocks for tea

    Reminds me of the ditty ( sung to colonel Bogey ) , another version of Benbaas

    Hitler has only got one ball
    Rommels got two but fairly small
    Himmler, has something similar
    And poor old Goebals
    Has no balls
    At all.

    Its that whining screeching noise from all around the world whenever a Jew gets the chance to moan, whine or whinge.

    A few thousand years ago some Italian bastards called Nero and Julius Ceaser invaded my country. The slaughtered millions of my people. Hundreds of thousand may be even millions were shipped off and forced to work for them, made to fight warriors with big fcuk off swords and even fed to lions for the amusement of the Italian elite.
    Do you hear us Brits still fcuking whining on about the mistreatment today ? NO.
    Thats because we have forgiven the Italians and got on with the rest of our lives.
    Something the Jews need to try once in a while !
