Gingerbread Brownshirts

An Oberlin, Ohio businessman who occasionally allows 'controversial' art to be displayed in his storefront window has nixed a gingerbread display featuring miniature Nazis.

Why a store front window would be a good place for controversial art, I couldn't fathom.

Last winter, the store owner, Charlie Palmer, allowed the same artist to display a "caroler-bashing" snowman and a little boy who was using his new Christmas gift chemistry set to brew crystal meth.

I don't know about you, but that sort of thing wouldn't quite put me in the Christmas mood.

***I saw a news video short this morning and tried to find a still picture of the Gingerbread Brownshirts to post, but found that NO ONE had an image of the so-called 'art.' ***
