From Sublime to Absurd: Ganja helps cure Nazi twins of racism

If we look at previous post on Fallujah the Opera as sublime instance of humanity trying to make the insanity of war sensible, then this post skews towards whatever goddess of irony exists.

[At 13 and cute as candy, twins Lynx and Lamb Gaede could have passed for any other teenagers with dreams of pop stardom.

Apart, that is, from their songs about white supremacy and smiley-faced Hitler T-shirts.

In 2005 the Mirror revealed how the blonde-haired, blue-eyed, all-American sisters formed a band called Prussian Blue – named after a by-product of the poison used to gas millions of Jews during the Holocaust.

Schooled in bile and racist lies by their warped mother and grandfather, these children of hate were cheered by right wing fanatics as they belted out tunes such as Aryan Man Awake and gave Nazi salutes on stage.

But seven years on it seems the Sieg Heil sisters have had a radical change of heart – and are now singing a different tune.

They appear to have turned from fascist, anti-immigration hate-mongers into laid-back liberals celebrating the joys of ethnic diversity and spreading a message of peace and love.

After escaping the all-controlling clutches of their mother, April, and battling serious health problems, Lynx and Lamb, now 20, say they have swapped their Hitler youth for a happy hippy lifestyle.

And, like so many other pop star transformations, the Gaede twins appear to have been helped along their journey of “enlightenment” by smoking a lot of marijuana.

“My sister and I are pretty liberal now,” Lamb revealed in a recent US TV interview.]
