Facebook Jews group suddenly praises Hitler - March 30th 2009, 03:17 AM

http://www.aol.in/news-story/Faceboo...07389026000004
Quote:
Washington, March 27: A group on the social-networking site calling itself "I Heart Jews" garnered more than 2,000 members until the group's name was suddenly changed to "Hitler: Great Modern Man of History". "It's disgusting. It's despicable," said Facebook user Wendy Erdheim, who had been part of the group. Other members of the group were similarly shocked. "Is this a joke?" posted one. "Because if it is not I am absolutely appalled." Mark Weitzman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center said the name change was no accident. "One would have to say that it's premeditated and that the intent was there from the beginning," FOX News quoted Weitzman, as saying. "We don't allow groups that are hateful or threatening, for example, and will remove these as quickly as possible when they're reported," a Facebook spokesman said. He confirmed that this specific group's name had indeed been changed to "Hitler: Great Modern Man of History," but was later changed again to "I Love Jews" and was still on the site. Postings to one of the 10 different "I Love Jews" groups on Facebook clearly referred to the Hitler name change, which appears to have taken place on or around March 18. It seems the group was renamed again Tuesday.
This is unacceptable.

Why unacceptable? Shocking and unusual and inflammatory perhaps but not unacceptable. A lot of the work done in the Third Reich could be considered great: the Autobahns bound a provincial Germany, he overturned the more unfair parts of Versailles. The Saar voted in 1934 to go back to the Reich under international supervision. Maintaining a large standing army did help in the short term but would not have done so in the long term.

The persecution of the Jews is well known which is the weirdest part of the change but if they want to change the name that's their right.

This is hilarious. So, some people joined some random website with other random people whom they probably don't know, joined a fancy group and someone changed the name of their group. So, since it offends them, it must be in the e-news. It's not unacceptable, it's a perfect opportunity for them to not get offended over a petty online group. I cant imagine what would happen if someone was soooo evil to go and change the number on their class or office door. OH, that'd be soo unacceptable. Please, people need to learn to grow some skin.

I imagine this was a joke. Not a joke in well taste, but not to be taken this seriously.

Obviously a slow news day. And there's nothing to dictate what is "acceptable" in circumstances such as this, because acceptable is a point of view. And there have been some good points made that, while Hitler did terrible things and the Third Reich was one of the most horrendous regimes in modern history, they did make substantial progress on improving infrastructure and many other aspects of life in Germany.

If this was about a bunch of self-harmers joining a group for that To Write Love on her Arms thing, and then the group name suddenly changed to "Cutting Rules", or if it was a group for atheists that suddenly changed to "Jesus is real and Atheists blow" or whatever...you'd all be pissed and talking about how it's disgusting.

All of us would be? Nope. I find suicidal people rather disgusting and degrading themselves, so supporting cutting wouldn't bother me. I'd just consider those more vile but not the act nor support for it being vile. The atheists would be considered immature. But nice try assuming that everyone is similar to you.

Uh... am I missing the point?
Who cares? And who said they were praising Hitler?
Definitions of great.. [ http://www.thefreedictionary.com/great ]
Quote:
1. Very large in size.
2. Larger in size than others of the same kind.
3. Large in quantity or number: A great throng awaited us. See Synonyms at large.
4. Extensive in time or distance: a great delay.
5. Remarkable or outstanding in magnitude, degree, or extent: a great crisis.
6. Of outstanding significance or importance: a great work of art.
7. Chief or principal: the great house on the estate.
8. Superior in quality or character; noble: "For he was great, ere fortune made him so" John Dryden.
9. Powerful; influential: one of the great nations of the West.
10. Eminent; distinguished: a great leader.
11. Grand; aristocratic.
12. Informal Enthusiastic: a great lover of music.
13. Informal Very skillful: great at algebra.
14. Informal Very good; first-rate: We had a great time at the dance.
15. Being one generation removed from the relative specified. Often used in combination: a great-granddaughter.
16. Archaic Pregnant.
I think the ones in bold describe Hitler, sure great wouldn't be my choice of adjective but using it is not necessarily praising Hitler.

Ah geez, people need to let the past go.... dwelling on it isn't going to make the slightest bit of difference.
I do think what Hitler did was wrong, but then I think the Americans bombing Hiroshima so much worse. That in no way was great, however Hitler can be described as great for the reasons stated above. He was wrong for a lot of things, but he accomplished things, terrible things yes. These people need to understand that facebook does not depict real life...its social networking, not exactly the most serious thing on the planet.

Americans bombed Hiroshima for a reason, although I don't agree with that reason. Hitler killed thousands for very little understandable reason.

That's not saying I'm against Hitler, or think that he is evil. I am actually fascinated by him, and plan to one day study the history of him and his part in WWII. Anyways, back on topic...It really must have been a slow news day.People need to realize to go with the flow, and if they don't like it they could have just left the group. I could understand if it was a hate group, but it seems jut like a joke or something to me.

I didn't assume anyone was similar to me. I formed this opinion using my knowledge of the average poster of this board, not based on my own opinions. So nice try attempting to call me out.

Eh I find people who deny the Holocaust much more disgusting. And I don't get from the new name a feel of praise. Hitler is a HUGE part of our history so yeah you could say he is a great part of it, great as in big not good.

It's not right, but I really don't see how this is newsworthy. I'd probably be more upset if I was Jewish.

And there's not an ounce of your opinion in this? Seems to be borderlining contradiction, nice try though.

It may be disrespectful, however, people need to a) quit dwelling on the past and b) quit taking petty things seriously. I'm amazed how this made the e-news, although perhaps that's evidence of people needing to not get all bent out of shape over something so silly.

I'm surprised this made news. And to be honest, With out The Third Reich and Hiter, Some great modern Military advances wouldn't of been made. Yes, I don't agree with the holocaust thing, But other then that. They where a good. With out them, We wouldn't of probley got 1. Jets 2. Nuclear weapons 3. Helicopters 4. Assault Rifles 5. First Mobile Missile launcher *The v-2 rocket* and much more!

It was obviously just a joke. ok, perhaps a slightly distasteful one, but still, its only a facebook group. I don't see why people care to be honest. i can't see how someone changing the name of a facebook group can cause people to be so upset.

He did what he felt right to help the German's Cause. He truly though Jews were the cause....So he did it on the behalf of protecting his country. Even if it meant taking the lives of so many innocent jews!

The Jews were targeted because they were relatively rich in the Great Depression. Not only that but it was believed that Jews in Germany were responsible for Germany losing WWI (Der Dolchstoßlegende or stab in the back legend.)
