Ho Hum -- Another Imbecile German Provocation
Last year Germany's arts community was bullied into canceling a production of Mozart's Idomeneo because it offended Muslim sensibilities. Now they have found a safe outlet for their idiotic protests -- capitalism and the United States. A production of Verdi's Masked Ball, is being staged as a deliberate protest against American capitalism. It includes blatant references to Hitler and asserts an equivalence between that monstrous period in German history and Bush's America. The high point of the production is a scene in which naked figures wearing Mickey Mouse masks cavort in front of images of the ruined World Trade Center. You see, Bush is Hitler and Americans are Nazis -- get it?
