Where does that sob get the nerve to belittle the lives lost fighting the Nazis! How dare they cheapen my grandfather's sacrifice by comparing the evil he and millions of others faced to a comment about snow!! I swear to God I would teach him a lesson if I ever see them. He just mocked the suffering, starvation, execution, etc of all the Holocaust victims, all the previous owners of those huge piles of human bodies and all those found in all the mass graves where the bodies, stacked like firewood, had to be pushed in the "grave" (bears more similarity to how trash is handled at a Landfill, but, technically it is a grave) with a bulldozer...

I can't understand why this guy wouldn't be hit by a veritable tidal wave of SJW vengeance. Protest until he is removed from school, we can't have him spreading his poisonous way of thinking, at least not until he has had a year or two of counseling to correct his offensive ways, and protest at his home and job if he has one until he is evicted and fired.

This is what would have happened if a white guy did something that was equally racially insensitive and so insulting. He should be the one apologizing! Why doesn't someone find him and teach him a lesson?? This is an OUTRAGE!!!
Dont physically harm anyone, be smart, people. But if someone lays a hand on you, send em straight to the undertaker.

I’m sorry... I didn’t hear that, as I have my fingers in my ears.

You would think that by the time a person gets into university, they would understand the concept of "context".

Instead of University College London apologizing, they should have used the opportunity to teach a lesson in contextual language for their students who seem to be lacking in that department. As an institution of higher learning, I think they owe their students at least that much.

I think the fact that the University apologised due to a “Hitler” tweet that was quite clearly a joke...
They’re not really in a position to lecture anyone about understanding “context”.

The left claiming, ironically, that anything they want to see is "related to Hitler and the claims of the left that the right are NAZIS when NAZIS were SOCIALISTS" is never seen as a "joke" as you try to imply now...

Even in these forums we keep seeing the idiocy behind such claims... Or the claims that the NAZIS were ever right-wing when back then progressives/left even in Hollywood were pro-Hitler...

The Chilling History of How Hollywood Helped Hitler (Exclusive)

Here are some facts from a holocaust survivor about Hitler, and why so many people voted for him, and the fact that he, and the NAZIS were LEFTISTS... Hear about "all the things Hitler promised" including the "free radios" he gave so people could listen to him, and the "nationalization" of infrastructure, and even the nationalization of the radio broadcasts, nationalization of education, nationalization of banks, the nationalization of the healthcare system etc, etc. The NAZI government had total control over the education of children turning the German children against their own parents...sound familiar?...

These are some of the SOCIALIST policies Hitler and his NAZIs thugs implemented... But there are ignorant people who to this day still claim that Hitler and the NAZIS were from the right, when not only did they call themselves National Socialists, but they implemented plans that were in fact socialist/leftwing...

The grossest and just plain pathetic and pitiable part of all this is that for several years now these millennial worthless weak cry-baby p-words have not but one or two times each hundred complaints even been whining about something offensive. That may seem like a pointless, obvious, or meaningless comment,but,you have to really think about it. Take the banana peel incident for example in which classes had to be canceled because students felt so threatened and unsafe and needed time in counseling to work through the trauma experienced when a discarded banana peel was spotted on campus which, although the student responsible ce forward saying, "sorry, it was my breakfast I mindlessly littered," and was suspended I think, the rest of the students were certain that it was an attack on colored students calling them tree-swinging monkeys because bananas grow on trees and are loved by monkeys, supposedly seeing the real reason for the act even if the guy,who tossed it did it subconsciously and therefore was totally unaware of it.

You have to think, was there really a person who felt his safety was jeopardized or who felt ashamed of his ethnicity or who felt psychological inner pain that comes with being hated for something beyond one's control? No! It would be absolutely insane for such things to elicit such an emotional reaction and probably be reason enough to get help for some underlying mental illness.

The more likely explanations are these two:
1. The Facebook generation raised in schools where in the US at least, a nationwide goal was set not to focus on memorizing material anymore but concentrating instead on how the course content and literature makes each student feel and these things combined with the fact 79% of American school children surveyed recently said when they grew up the wanted to be YouTube millionaire stars which all amounts to a generation where almost everyone suffers from narcissistic personality disorder and these racism,claims are just another way to be the one people focus on even momentarily (and that they will do or claim just about anything that when twisted enough makes the slightest bit of sense) for an otherwise cookie cut kid listening to the same music as the next, playing the same video games instead of being out on the streets with friends (now ghost town streets just minutes after the bell) instead until they notice moms and dads sticking their heads out shouting for kids to come eat...like my generation...it didn't even matter which parent you heard the call and knew it was time,to part ways after hours of healthy face to face,socialization. Everyone should see the Facebook part of Anthony Jesselnick's stand up comedy show "Thoughts and Prayers" as he points this exploitation of,the most inappropriate things millennial do for attention on social media.

2. Students have been brought up to believe that anything that simply identifies, points out, suggests, pertains to, or could be looked at as more relevant to one group rather than another, that that should have the effect of making someone offended and traumatized inside. For example, I am going to serve lo mein noodles and vegetables to my schools vegetarian club since I can make a lot for not too much money. I am, in the eyes of millennials, guilty of racism all because it is surely an oriental Asian dish. Fried rice noodles with veggies and in my head all the Asian students I see around the room must be hurting inside at that moment so I need to be their champion not for their sake but moreso because it will get people focused on me for kudos and praise and all the while, nothing was actually said not even anything...not by a sane mind at least...can be .

I’m sorry, but no matter how factual or baseless your long winded diatribe might be...

It does nothing to change the FACT that the “Hitler” tweet was clearly sarcasm.

you know, i followed up on this and looked at the twitter thread in question. as a whole it only got 86 total replies. hardly an internet outrage storm.

most damning of all? OP's source appears to have made up some of the quoted tweets, which i could not find. i only found this one, which honestly appears to be a joke. most of the replies in the thread did not seem to have any serious note of offense to them, just jokes.



but please enjoy your outrage about some fake outrage... it's par for the course in these matters. if anything, the university jumped the gun by apologizing but that's erring on the side of caution. after all, they probably have international students to whom the reference to 'white christmas' was not as clear.


That part was a joke/sarcasm. I never fully believe articles like the one in the OP. So I went to their twitter page to see what exactly had been posted.

One idiot took offense they apologized and all the others made fun of them for apologizing or used some thick sarcasm.

People make mistakes when writing statements not realizing how their words can be misconstrued to mean something totally different. Any official sending out company information should always have others read their statements before posting them. The writer usually doesn't have an unbiased outside perspective when evaluating their own message.

We see it happen in advertising when an ad takes on a whole new negative meaning with the public. What's bad about that, advertising executives should know better.


Only an idiot or a troll could misconstrue the college's message. I'm thinking troll in this case. The real tragedy wasn't the troll, but the fact that the college feed it.

One would think, that even English, "educated" folk, understood/knew, that snow is "white"? Even the Russians know that! Give me any "race" that doesn't know what color/colour "snow" is. They're not doing their "race" any favors. What a bunch of BS! Really! A university? All that "science" gathering in one place? And they still don't know what color/colour snow is? Hmmm!??!??

IN LONDON????

Jeez, I thought this sort of stuff only happened in the US (no offence American brothers and sisters, you just always seemed to have more of these people than us).

Seriously, this has to stop and stop soon, the levels of stupidity are now approaching critical, are we really going to strip society of anything that refers to colour, especially WHITE. What next, shovels in case they get called a spade, items that use chains in case it objectifies slavery. Cotton, oh gawd, can't have that racist flower.

Basically we are really on a social slide that is heading in to war fare, how long before the more militant snowflakes demand confrontation, how long before the out and out BLM supporters really go to town on people they describe as white privilege (#ty cheap term). How long before our so called education establishments actually fold in on themselves and just become hate groups (yeah that ones well in to production).

What makes me laugh is that the non black supporters of BLM etc would be the first on their hate list after all of us were decimated, I'd love to be a fly on the wall if it all goes to crap and be in that meeting when the BLM's tell the non black supporters "well you guys aint black so feck the lot of you suckers".

We need the norms of society, white black and whatever ethnicity else to just stop these people screwing up life in general, when I talk to my mate Tony who is black, do I avoid the word black or white, NO, does he take offence if I use them, NO, does he hark on about my so called white privilege, NO and so on and so forth, we are both educated people who are above this petty # stirring and are FRIENDS and have been for a long time.

Hooray for normal people....

Well, it's quite obvious one the seven dwarves replied. "Stupid" is one of them, right??


Probably. It's a tough one though. With a stupid notification like that from the staff, I can't really say that his overstatement wasn't quite the effective provocation. Stupid or not.
They'll think twice about giving out "zero-notification" notifications now, hopefully.
