Fashion ad's pink Hitler has Italy seeing red


Hitler is already a theme this week. This time, a clothing company in Italy put up billboards in Palermo showing the Nazi leader in a pink uniform with a heart armband, and telling young people to "Change style. Don't follow your leader." See the full image here. Isn't the message here compromised a bit by the source? After all, this is a company that tries to dictate what young people should wear. See, this is why Godwin's Law and subsequent corollaries should be taught in the schools. Also, someone out there needs to start a band and name it Pink Hitler.
