High School Censors Swastikas, Missing Entire Point of Satirical Anti-Nazi Play, The Producers
Administrators have ordered the removal of swastikas from a high school production of The Producers, the famous Mel Brooks film that makes fun of Nazism.
“It’s satire, not supposed to be taken seriously,” said Tyler Lowe, a student performer. CBS notes that Lowe is himself Jewish.
I’m not convinced that the administrators “missed the point”. While it’s possible that they simply never saw The Producers (quite an amusing film),I think it more likely that the leftists running the public schools understand damned well that the story ridicules Hitler and the national Socialists, and want to keep other people from understanding that. Socialists have to stick up for one another.
