    Default Should the word "Nazi" be censored???

    I know this thread is gonna open up a can of worms, but I'm sorry. I just saw something that really bugged the shit out of me. I was reading an article (which I'll post here in a minute) with the word "Nazi" edited out. I can understand the "N" word or other derogatory terms edited but Nazi is not a derogatory term, it's a description of a political affiliation. What are your thoughts? Hopefully this can be and remain a mature thread without the typical bullshit... Here's to hoping...

    The FIA has remained silent over the sex scandal involving its president, Max Mosley, who was exposed in a ####-themed orgy by British tabloid News of the World.

    Mosley, 67, was caught on video taking part in what the tabloid described as a “sadomasochistic orgy” with five prostitutes. The scandal’s proportion was enhanced by the fact that Mosley’s father, Oswald Mosley, was the leading fascist leader in Britain in the years before World War II, and an open Adolf Hitler sympathizer. In the video posted on the News of the World website, Mosley role-plays, among other things, the procedure Jews went through before being admitted to #### concentration camps during WWII.

    “This is a matter between Mr. Mosley and the paper in question,” an FIA spokesman told autosport.com. “We understand that Mr. Mosley’s lawyers are now in contact with that newspaper and the FIA has no comment.”

    F1’s commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone told London’s The Times newspaper that the issue should have no influence in Mosley’s role as FIA president – several Jewish rights organizations in the UK are calling for his resignation.

    “I’ve known him an awful long time,” Ecclestone said. “If somebody had told me this without the evidence I would have found it difficult to believe. Assuming it’s all true, what people do privately is up to them.

    “I don’t honestly believe [it] affects the sport in any way. Knowing Max it might be all a bit of a joke. You know, it’s one of those things where he’s sort of [joking], rather than anything against Jewish people.”

    Of course not, but people who freely use the word need to realize it's pretty offensive when used flippantly, especially to a Jewish person, even in jest. It's a word people use too lightly, but that's all right. The word itself isn't offensive, what it stands for is. And should be to all people, because Nazis hated everyone who wasn't them.

    I don't think so. It's not a racial slur.

    I do think that people who misuse it should be shot. That'd do away with some of my least favorite posters here.

    Unless it just maimed them, but that'd be okay, too.

    No.

    If you want to really hurt a Nazi-type person, you have a free and fearless exchange of all ideas and philosophies--even the bad ones.

    They hate that.

    I dont think it should be censored. As someone stated above, it was a type of political affiliation, not a derogatory word or phrase. I could think of at least 10 words that SHOULD be censored or banned but nazi isnt one of them.

    For the record: I am in no way supporting the nazi regime or what they stood for - past or present.

    Well, no. But for the record, there's a taboo on swastica in pretty much every EU country, but there's no in the States. We got a large shipment of the US-made scale model WW2 airplanes in the store I work, with all Third Reich marks on them - and I've overheard a few customers making remarks about it.

    Yes.

    To call someone a Nazi might hurt their feelings. Even where they're acting like a Nazi .

    Seriously, no. It's like book-burning which is a very you-know-what kind of thing to do. Just because people today throw the word around without knowing the definition, history or context doesn't mean the word should be supressed. You have to admit that the Third Reich dabbled and endulged in so many different types of pure evil that you think that the word(name) might once in a while be used proppery but today anybody in authority gets called one for enforcing the rules.

    interestingly enough, this very issue came up in one of our toronto papers (the sun) a couple of months ago, in a column written by the head of the b'nai b'rith of canada.... basically scolding anyone who uses the word, and that it is as offensive as the 'other' n-word.... he went on to give a list of examples in which public figures used the term is such ways as: "this person was acting in a nazi-like manner" etc. etc. He then proceeded to chastise every non-jewish person for their brazen and lazy use of the word.

    ironically, dear mr. b'nai b'rith clammed up when it was eloquently pointed out that ....

    wasnt it seinfeld (jewish) who made an entire cottage industry around the phrase: "soup-nazi"? which then beget every variation on that term....

    and

    wasnt it mel brooks (jewish) who wrote the very successful musical and movie "the producers" in which the centre-piece of the show is a 'bad' musical called "springtime for Hitler" complete with full-out nazi production (tongue in cheek of course)?

    so apparently it was /is ok for jewish people to use the nazi term in an entertainment way, thereby 'relaxing' the meaning of the term and also bringing it into a 'humourous' vein for our cutlure, but God forbid after that, anyone else uses the term....

    didnt we go through this same silliness with the introduction of the term 'niggaz' with rap?


    so in the end, the media portrays the word one way, and people then are left with double meanings....


    i think 99% of the public that uses the term, does so with NO intent of any disrespect to anyone who suffered under the 'real' nazis during WWII....

    and i read the same article up here today, and it was NOT censored, thankfully.... funny, i wasnt offended by the use of the word nazi, but i did have a silent chuckle at the expense of this idiot who partook in his little orgy....

    Taking out words like Nazi might put the "anti"-defamation league out of work.

    Easy killer. Jews also like to poke fun at themselves a lot, especially in film. I do all the time, and I rarely take Jewish jokes seriously when I can tell it's just all in fun. When people are doing it to be assholes, that's something different.

    There's nothing wrong with the word Nazi, it is what it is.

    Please don't compare Mel Brooks' use of Nazis in a humorous way to a fucking gangsta rapper's use of "nigga." It's not the same thing, not at all.

    You don't hear Jews calling each other "kikes," now that would be like using the word "nigga."
