Trifecta of Offense

Italian IndyMedia, the regional offshoot of that always stupid landfill of insane bullshit, has managed a rare trifecta of offensiveness with this image of Pope Benedict XVI dressed as a Nazi before a giant swastika.

Obviously this is offensive to Catholics to have their spiritual leader compared to a genocidal death machine. It's got to be offensive to Germans to have their compatriot slandered as a Fascist simply because of his nationality. And it's probably offensive to Nazis, to be associated in any way with a Catholic priest.

Good job IndyMedia.
