Oct. 20, 2005 — Thirteen-year-old twins Lamb and Lynx Gaede have one album out, another on the way, a music video, and lots of fans.Oh, and just in case you think they're simply proud of their heritage or some crap like that - check out the t-shirts they're sporting:
They may remind you another famous pair of singers, the Olsen Twins, and the girls say they like that. But unlike the Olsens, who built a media empire on their fun-loving, squeaky-clean image, Lamb and Lynx are cultivating a much darker personna. They are white nationalists and use their talents to preach a message of hate.
Known as "Prussian Blue" — a nod to their German heritage and bright blue eyes — the girls from Bakersfield, Calif., have been performing songs about white nationalism before all-white crowds since they were nine.
"We're proud of being white, we want to keep being white," said Lynx. "We want our people to stay white … we don't want to just be, you know, a big muddle. We just want to preserve our race."
Yup, you're seeing that right. They're wearing Hitler smileys. Because apparently the fact that he was a total incompetent and managed to lose a war he should've won* isn't sufficient to dampen his image among the insane.
Now, on the subject of racial purity, a friend of mine put it succinctly many years ago. "We're all mongrels," he said. And while some, like these two idiots, keep trying to deny it that doesn't make it any less true.
*Obviously, not saying that Hitler should have won in the sense that this would have been a desirable outcome. Only that it was such a near thing for the allies, and we were far too close to defeat on a number of occasions. Fortunately for us, the Nazis were total frigging boobs.
One of my favourite stories along this line comes from John Kenneth Galbraith, who was (among many, many other things) responsible for the interrogation of the Nazis who essentially ran Germany's economy during the war. Galbraith was amazed to find that most of them had little to no knowledge of economics, and they were almost all drug addicts of one form or another. As one of his coworkers put it: "We almost lost to those poor bastards?"
