GUEST,Murray on Salt Spring Folklore: vancouver folk SS (17) RE: Folklore: vancouver folk SS 07 Feb 08

Dr R was in the Hitler Youth. So were a great many of young Germans in the Thirties. You couldn't really avoid it. It was like the Scouts; they sang songs; they hiked, and they loved their Fatherland. What's wrong with that? We are not all responsible for the errors and indeed the crimes of our leaders. Not every US citizen is to be blamed for the Iraq debacle, and not every Brit for Margaret Thatcher. Kevind has some history I imagine, and a load of chips on both shoulders. Helmut is a pleasant guy, who sings good tender songs; Rika a pleasant and talented woman, Jon an informed and serious folksinger, and their family are pleasant too. For goodness sake, don't allow this relatively peaceful site to degenerate into racist rants.
    I think Murray's post brings a pretty good close to this discussion, which sometimes has bordered on libel. Any further posts on this subject will be considered personal attacks, and will be deleted.
