Subject: Ok, you went too far now...
Before I lay into you, which, after browsing your site obsessively for the past week, I know you're used to
by now, I have some things to cover.
Having said that, I'd not trouble to add to the heap
if I didn't feel it was important.
First let me direct you to the page I found offensive:
This particular page of Pickleman 5...
Now, so you know where I'm coming from, I am a
die-hard Rammstein fan, and have been for going on 7
Don't get me wrong, I saw your commentary about Till
Lindemann, the lead singer, on your sXe hate page
(This page specifically, http://www.i-mockery.com/minimocks/p...an5/page15.php).
I laughed my ass off!
I'm telling you this so you know, once again, I am not
being nit-picky. I'm not one of the many Rammy-Drones
(as I call them) that thinks they are demi-Gods. On
the contrary, I have produced a GREAT deal of humor
articles about them, both written and visual.
But, I am frustrated with non-fans that try and use
the Rammstein name as a banner for Nazism, even if it
is disguised as "humor". That is going too far. The
soldiers in this panel are blatantly modelled after
the Nazis, and one calls out "Rammstein!"
Rammstein has spent the bulk of, if not ALL of, their
career as a band doing EVERYTHING they can to dispel
the association of themselves with Nazism. They even
put out a song, "Links 2 3 4", where they CLEARLY
declare that their beliefs lie to the left, meaning non-Nazi/non-Communist.
It is people such as yourself who use Rammstein as
easy poster-boys for Nazism that makes them have to
work unnecessarily hard to declare themselves, and
their beliefs, when they should just be able to make
music in peace.
Speaking of PEACE, I've now said mine, and this e-mail
is going on my Rammstein forum (I'll be more than
happy to provide you the link, if you so choose.) as
will your response.
Thank you for taking the time to read thus far, if you
The funny thing is, I think Rammstein is a great novelty band and I own several of their CDs. They're friggin' hilarious, I've seen their live show (one of the greatest musical pyrotechnical spectacles you'll ever see) and it's quite obvious that they have nothing to do with nazism.
