Hitler baby invades Hartford and he wants your car

"I am offended by it and I'm not Jewish," said Linda Keeler who works at a doctor's office nearby.

Cause, you know, Hitler only offends Jews. Not homosexuals, the handicapped, blacks, Gypsies, Poles, Jehovah's Witness, Communists or society in general. Idiot.

It is a common all over the world to give name to a child as a unique identity after birth. The origin of such identity varies from continent to continent and from place to place. In Nigeria some children are named after their paternal or maternal parents and background or some deities worshiped in the family while some are named based on religious beliefs and characters. It is not also uncommon to see some named after heroes as appreciated by individual parents; such is the case of one court orderly, whose paternal desire to adour a hero gave a name that often leads him into frustrations. He has begun to consider a change of name.

Arkon Art Museum displays Nazi Satire

by Steven Litt
Between 1930 and 1938, Heartfield lampooned the rise of the Third Reich in 237 bitingly satirical photomontages published in the widely circulated Arbeiter Illustrierte Zeitung, the Workers Illustrated Newspaper, known as AIZ.

As might be expected, Heartfield's work got him into serious trouble with the Nazis. In April 1933, Heartfield narrowly escaped arrest by the Gestapo. The artist, who was only slightly taller than 5 feet, climbed out of his apartment window and hid inside a scrapped barbershop sign on a neighbor's ground-floor patio, said Andres Zervigon, a Rutgers University assistant professor who is writing a book on Heartfield. The artist then fled to Prague, where AIZ had already relocated.

Between 1979 and 1991, the Akron museum obtained 40 individual Heartfields published in AIZ, along with entire issues of the magazine, making it one of a handful of museums in the United States with substantial holdings in Heartfield's work.

Everyone is like Hitler

By STEPHEN KING

What do Stephen Harper, Barack Obama and John McCain have in common?

They're all like Hitler, according to people who have been making themselves heard over recent days. In fact, if you listen to enough idiots -- and these days they're hard to screen out -- everyone is like Hitler.

Stephen Harper is like Hitler, according to composer Walter Boudreau, speaking at a Montreal rally on Wednesday, because he plans to reduce federal funding to the arts. Barack Obama is like Hitler, according to various right-wing pundits, because he can get tens of thousands of fervent supporters to come to his speeches.
