Nazis Take Paris, Again
Looks like the high school band in Paris, Texas sure knows how to spice up a halftime show…
ABC News — Texas Band Chief Apologizes for Nazi Flag:
A high school band director has apologized for a halftime performance that included Adolf Hitler’s anthem “Deutschland Über Alles” and a student running across the field with a Nazi flag.
Charles Grissom, Paris High School’s band director, said his intention was to have a historical performance featuring the flags and music of the nations that fought during World War II.
The show, titled “Visions of World War II,” nearly caused a melee at Friday night’s football game at Dallas’ Hillcrest High School.
“We were booed,” Grissom said Monday. “We had things thrown at us. We were cursed.”
I’m just surprised that, when the kid ran out with the Nazi flag, the entire town of Paris didn’t surrender en masse!
