Another compelling argument for forced sterilization:
Thirteen-year-old twins Lamb and Lynx Gaede have one album out, another on the way, a music video, and lots of fans.
Now naming your children "Lamb" and "Lynx" is bad enough, and ought to subject the offending parent to the death penalty. But it gets worse:
Known as "Prussian Blue" — a nod to their German heritage and bright blue eyes — the girls from Bakersfield, Calif., have been performing songs about white nationalism before all-white crowds since they were nine.
It almost makes me want to convert to Judaism, so that it would be especially fulfilling to beat the stupid out of the parents of these girls, should the opportunity present itself. Anyway, these two go way beyond misguided into a realm of stupidity that is rarely seen outside the Strib's opinion pages:
"We're proud of being white, we want to keep being white," said Lynx. "We want our people to stay white … we don't want to just be, you know, a big muddle. We just want to preserve our race."
"We want to keep being white..."
It's only SPF 500 and above for these two. And forget about the Bahamas...
Oh yes. About the "parents":
Lynx and Lamb have been nurtured on racist beliefs since birth by their mother April. "They need to have the background to understand why certain things are happening," said April, a stay-at-home mom who no longer lives with the twins' father. "I'm going to give them, give them my opinion just like any, any parent would."
April home-schools the girls, teaching them her own unique perspective on everything from current to historical events. In addition, April's father surrounds the family with symbols of his beliefs — specifically the Nazi swastika. It appears on his belt buckle, on the side of his pick-up truck and he's even registered it as his cattle brand with the Bureau of Livestock Identification.
Oh sweet holy crap. Someone ought to hogtie these people, drop them in the middle of Harlem, and force them to eat spinach gratin for a year.
I only add this last bit because it reeks of parody. But glancing at the calendar, I see we are a long way from April 1:
Songs like "Sacrifice" — a tribute to Nazi Rudolf Hess, Hitler's deputy Fuhrer — clearly show the effect of the girls' upbringing. The lyrics praise Hess as a "man of peace who wouldn't give up."
A. Musical. Tribute. To. Rudolph. Hess.

Well, I suppose it's not all that different than wearing a Che Guevarra shirt.
