“Hitler Rocks!” Elite NYC School Says Swastika is a Symbol of Peace

For a mere $45,100 a year your youngster’s mind can be filled with this lunacy.

Sixth-graders at an elite Bronx private school have been caught drawing swastikas in art class, so administrators met with the kids — talking mainly about how the symbols represent peace in some cultures.

One parent who wishes not to be named said Jewish students have felt unsafe since the images began popping up three weeks ago at Ethical Culture Fieldston School, where tuition costs $45,100 a year.

In addition to the swastikas, a notebook was found at the middle school campus with the words “Hitler Rocks!” scrawled on the front, the parent said.

Administrators decided to address the apparent anti-Semitism by holding a grade-wide meeting.

Parents say teachers spent nearly 12 of the 15 minutes on a PowerPoint presentation on how the swastika was still considered a sacred symbol — while only briefly mentioning how the Nazis had adopted it in the 1920s.

School officials never once mentioned the Holocaust, a parent said.

When asked what they learned, the kids simply said, “It wasn’t a good idea to draw” the swastikas.

“It’s a failure of an institution to educate,” one parent said. “Teachers and administrators were calling for a town hall meeting, but instead, they chose to do just sixth grade.

“Some of the teachers are really irate,” she added. “It’s kind of a hate crime and a crime against all of the community, and not to address it is horrible.”

We imagine if one of these kids drew a gun they’re be expelled.

    In South Korea, it’s common to see the symbol on the top of (I think Buddhist) churches. I believe it’s displayed in reverse of what the Nazis adopted. At first it was kinda shocking to see, until you realize the symbol has been around forever.

    Don’t get your panties in a wad when people point out that some signs don’t always mean to them, what it means to you.

    You’re not the center of the friggen universe.
