Nazi Olson twins won't be in Teen People

Remember the nazi Olson twins of Prussian Blue? Teen People was going to do a story on them, give them more exposure without mentioning their "white supremacist" agenda. Thankfully , it was found out and, as expected, a shit storm of outrage killed the story. Teen People spiked a story it planned to run on teen twin hate-mongering singers, after learning a magazine staffer had cut a deal to avoid using the words "Nazi," "supremacist" and "hate" in the article. Insiders at parent company Time Inc. said yesterday that Teen People, under Managing Editor Lori Majewski, had promised not to include the terms in a Q and A article about Lamb and Lynx Gaede - the singing teens who are favorites of white supremacist rallies and of David Duke, the one-time grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. In a statement, Time Inc. said "a junior employee" made unauthorized promises to the twins' mother. "Such an agreement is in violation of Time Inc. editorial policy and, as a result, we are killing the story and pursuing a formal inquiry." A profile on ABC's "Primetime" had triggered a firestorm of controversy because the home-schooled youths sported Nazi T-shirts, gave Seig Heil salutes and sang songs urging the separation of races. The Post broke the story that Teen People had snagged the hard-to-get interview with a tacit deal after the twins had gone into hiding. Politicians and Holocaust survivors on Monday turned up at Time Inc.'s Rockefeller Center doorstep to protest the magazine's plans to run the story. Oh, those damn politicians and JOOOOOOOOOOOZZZZZ. They are always after bringing down the aryan movement. Damn them; Damn them to hell. Or thank god. Whichever works for you.
