The German government today banned a neo-Nazi youth group it says ran summer camps where children were instructed in racist and National Socialist ideology, Der Spiegel reports. “Heimattreue Deutsche Jugend,” the German Youth Faithful to the Homeland, allegedly included military exercises and “racial science” classes—which discussed ways to “restore blood purity”—in its program at the camps.
“Today’s ban puts a stop to the disgusting activities of the HDJ,” said Wolfgang Schäuble, the interior minister. The HDJ boasts only 400 members across Germany, but was influential due to its public profile and links to the National Democratic Party, a more mainstream far-right group.

I for one dont care what political ideaology people adhere to..as long as it doesnt affect anyone else,i could care less if they are nazi's etc..therefore i find this completely against the freedoms which we cherish.I dont think any western government can take the moral high ground on such issues...even the nazis.
