Hitler moustache joke gets boy Jewish treatment
Hang the bastard
Dear Roger Cameron,
Headmaster of St John’s College,
Laughter is the best medicine. Don’t take it you die and that’s
what they could be saying about South Africa if we
carry on the way we are going. The slightest thing said or done in jest gets
blown out of all proportion.
Of course the media is no help and nor are headmasters it seems.
They just love turning a flicker of a flame into a blazing inferno.
usually around some racial issue or
College Facebook ad
this that’s not
funny movementis even stifling mirth at our schools.
St John’s College,
that posh Anglican establishment in Johannesburg has, as you
know, just hit the headlines over what has been described as an anti-Semitic,
Hitler related assembly.
Thursday was supposed to be a fun day at your college where it
will cost well over R100 000 a year to send a child to get aworld
class Christianeducation. But didn’t you or any of your fellow teachers think that you were
asking for trouble by having a Moustache Day?
could you not have realised that the most famous one in history was bound to
make an appearance when you encouraged pupils toshow their ingenuity by seeing who could arrive with the best
artificial moustache as judged by their peers,?
sure enough it did.
As you know a 13
year old boy caused a right
stir by going on stage sporting that strip of black hair that has become the trade mark of one of the most notorious
butchers the world has ever known. The boy made things even worse by having a Hitler hairstyle to go with it. To cap it all he greeted his fellow
students with Siege heil, the Nazi salute.
one would expect this caused a great deal of laughter and a lot of boys stood
up and returned the salute.
But didn’t the Jew at your school, who sent a letter of
protest to you, do exactly what you and the media subsequently did and that was
to blow the incident completely out
Comedian Herring again
Jewish boy wrote that he was so disgusted because the entire
school seemed to bear no second thought whenseemingly
admiring this man. Whether you are Jewish or not
does not matter, because of the evil things he did in his life – no one can
possibly argue that Adolf Hitler was a man to be admired by anyone.
a lot of garbage. This is very twistedJewish
logic. To even suggest that a 13 year old boy at
your school, who puts on a Hitler type moustache
on an occasion like this, is an admirer of the Nazi
leader is, as I have just said, absolute rubbish. It is just as much nonsense
to claim that this joke showed how the entire school admired Hitler.
his letter to you the Jewish boy certainly
poured on the agony by telling you how members of his family had been killed by
the Nazis and how he had been forced to leave
school early because of the pain andhurt inside me.
then told you he didn’t want the culprits punished but he merely wanted them to
understand that their behaviour was unacceptable.
That’s another bit of hogwash. Of course he wanted them punished
otherwise he wouldn’t have made such a big thing out of the incident and had
his views splashed all over the internet.
I was at school boys who went whining to the headmaster found out soon enough
that it is not something to be recommended. But things have got a lot softer since my
day so Mr Cameron, perhaps you will be calling
in the school’s protection squad to make sure nothing untoward happens to our Jewish crusader.
of course you yourself did nothing but stir the pot with what seems to be some relish. In your letter addressed to the St John’sCommunitythat was posted on your school’s
website you said, This has caused much distress and anger
amongst staff, boys and our wider community.
Isn't 'Natives' very non u now?
I may say so Mr Cameron this is a sensational,
generalisation that would have made even the News of
the World proud. And it did absolutely nothing to put the whole thing in
prospective. It just made it worse.
all know how the Nazis massacred 6-million Jews, but you had to go on and on about it.
just to make sure the pressure will be kept up on this little Nazi loving boy, you said that certain pupils and staffwill addressthe assembled school on the
following Thursdayindicating why the action was ill-conceived and wrong.
Mad Bob Zimbabwe's Hitler
don’t you remember that a couple of days after this crime against humanity was
committed all your Housemasters told their boys why this had been offensive and
insensitive.Talk about labouring the point. Now they are all going
to be told the same thing over again.
You said the Prefect in charge and the boy concerned had apologised for theinsensitivity and hurtand that theyboth had no intention of offending anyone.
course they didn’t. Can’t you and the rest of your staff get it into your heads
that it was ajoke, JOKE,made
on an occasion where the entire theme wasdo your best to be amusing.
between you and that Jewish stirrer you have
made it into something it was not.
The Jews are always complaining
that they are being persecuted, but that is exactly what has happened here,
quite unjustifiably, to the 13 year old boy and
the Prefect who was in charge.
AND THAT’S A VERY SICK JOKE.

P.S. I see Wikipedia says that one of your school traditions that
no longer exists is Jocular Thursday, although it
may be reintroduced in thefuture. I
wouldn’t take any chances if I was you. You never know what the little brats
will get up to next. They could easily cause the next World
War if you are not careful.
P.P.S. This sort of thing
would never have happened at Bishops old boy.
As you know that’s a Church school in Cape
Town that’s even posher than yours.
