    Perhaps the least appropriate role model ever!

    I dunno. They're graduating from semi-communist government indoctrination center and Hitler was pretty down with that.

    At least he paid attention to some degree in his world history class. He should have picked a more offensive quote of Hitler's, like "you can't win a war with Salvation Army methods".


    I'm kind of surprised the school didn't catch it before printing the yearbook, though.

    It's a pretty innocuous quote.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Glad someone else thinks so and I don't find the quote offensive.

    Exactly. Hitler had a lot of nice things to say about vegetarians but you don't see PETA spray-painting his quotes on naked coeds.

    so? I can think of plenty of quote by people whom I find reprehensible without finding the quote to be so as well - take the quote: “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” A very true quote even if the man who coined it was a madman. Furthermore - even Satan confessed that Jesus is Lord - should we never confess that Jesus is Lord because Satan said it?
