Still Not Funny: Dressing up as a Nazi

Last week, the mayor of the Romanian city of Constanta, Radu Mazare, thought it would be hilarious if he and his son dressed as Nazis and goose-stepped down the runway of a fashion show.

These instincts were wrong.

Friendly note to Mazare from ER: Its not funny if your country was responsible for the deportation or death of 420,000 Jews during the Second World War, even less funny if government officials denied Romania’s participating in the Holocaust up until 2004, and it’s down right inappropriate when Romanian newspapers still blame Jews for the financial crisis.
