I’m too busy with life to be bothered with Twitter, so I’ll do this my own way.
Russian Holocaust ice-skating routine slammed as ‘unbelievably tasteless’
PERHAPS THE HOLOCAUST ITSELF WAS UNBELIEVABLY TASTELESS?
Looking back into the annals of history is often uncomfortable for some. I wouldn’t call that discomfort tasteless. Especially to those who choose to believe the holocaust never occurred, or to those who wish to bury it so deep that the upcoming generations will never know about it.
But who authorizes certain folks to rewrite history? It is what it is. It is what it was. And it shouldn’t be changed by a bunch of Dudley-Do-Writes. If they are physically present and offended they can leave. If they are watching it on television they probably know where the power switch is located..
I thought this skating routine was excellent. Like opera or a play it evolves from a story. Those who are unable to grasp that story shall go to their graves wondering. Unless they educate themselves.
Trump found fault with the current broadway play, Hamilton. And I don’t agree with his shortsighted opinion of that either.
