Adolf Hitler had asthma
According to archive records of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) one of the most famous people (and one of the most creepy) allegedly suffered from asthma.
A campaign against asthma was tried to be started by The Norwegian Heart and Lung Association LHL, they wanted to put focus on teddy bears and toys that could be dangerous to kids having asthma. They wanted to use teddy bears looking like Hitler, the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and former North Korea dictator Kim Jong-Il to make people aware of the danger.
“While copywriter Bendik Romstad added: ‘By focusing on children’s bedrooms we want to stop the problem of asthma and allergies before it even starts to develop.” Daily Mail
Luckily someone noticed the shameful act:
“Members of the Norwegian Jewish society, Det Mosaiske Trossamfund, said they were concerned that a Hitler teddy might soften the mass murderer’s image among the young.” Daily Mail
The campaign was banned and I am happy to see that. How could they ever think that was a good idea presenting mass murderers to kids as teddy bears?
Yes, asthma can kill many a year, but using mass murderers as a way of displaying that is just tasteless and inappropriate, I would even say idiotic.
Those mass murderers really do not deserve the attention, and the softening image it would give. Kids love their teddy bears and we do not want the kids to love mass murderers.
“Wartime, Adolf Hitler suggested, “was the best time for the elimination of the incurably ill.” The Holocaust
HITLER AUTHORIZES KILLING OF THE IMPAIRED
“Adolf Hitler authorizes the beginning of the “euthanasia” program—the systematic killing of those Germans whom the Nazis deem “unworthy of life.” The order is backdated to the beginning of the war (September 1, 1939). At first, doctors and staff in hospitals are encouraged to neglect patients. Thus, patients die of starvation and diseases. Later, groups of “consultants” visit hospitals and decide who will die. Those patients are sent to various “euthanasia” killing centers in Greater Germany and killed by lethal injection or in gas chambers. ” The Holocaust
“Despite public protests in 1941, the Nazi leadership continued this program in secret throughout the war. About 200,000 handicapped people were murdered between 1940 and 1945.” The Holocaust
How could you ever think this was a good idea LHL? Right now I am ashamed of you.
