    There's probably more to the story than what's in this article, but why condemn the playing of German music but not that of Japan? They were on the same team during WWII, and comitting similar atrocities prior to WWII.

    I'm not familiar with that exact piece, but a lot of German nationalist music is perfect for marching band openers. They must have started with the German song. If they had started with songs from the allied side and then moved to Germany and Japan it probably would have been obvious what they were doing, and wouldn't have caused such a stir.

    What a moron

    But if you think about it, it's far from the first time somebody from Paris hoisted a Nazi flag.

    Ouch! LMFAO. I guess some people are just born without common sense.
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."

    I trust he doesn't teach comparative religion either

    From a follow-up article:

    "The Nazi flag was part of that show and when it was shown, fans at Hillcrest, an old Jewish community in the Dallas area, were outraged.

    What upset the Hillcrest fans was the fact that Paris High brought the swastika flag of Nazi Germany into their Franklin Stadium during Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New’s Year’s Day and their day of remembrance."
    All these years the people said he’s actin’ like a kid.
    He did not know he could not fly, so he did.

    This is really amazing. None of the students raised an objection - they actually found somebody to unquestioningly carry a Nazi flag onto the field? Nobody at the school observed the band practicing and questioned the selection of the Nazi anthem? Heads should roll.
