The other day, while shopping in a store in Woodland Hills, I saw something that angered and offended me. A man obviously dressed in the punk style was wearing a shirt called "Hitler's Tour of Europe."
On the back was a list and dates of the invasions and occupations of various European countries in World War II. On the front was a picture of Hitler.
I cannot find adequate words to describe the filth that I saw in this shirt. I asked the wearer if he was a Nazi. He said, "No." I was extremely depressed at seeing this shirt. Part of the depression was that someone would buy such a shirt and wear it in public. I certainly am a believer in freedom of speech, but I don't think that a sensitive person would have the gall to display such filth in public.
I have no quarrel with people who like the punk attire. I certainly am not one who sticks to conventional attire or style. Some of the punkers are quite attractive and some not. In fact, I should not be picking on punkers for what I see as imprudent. What I do request is that sensitive people have the decency to not buy and wear such garments. There are many people who would be extremely offended, much more than I was, by such a display. Please be considerate of them.
