Glamorous TV anchorwoman Eva Herman was sacked from the German TV station where she worked in a controversial row over family values.
The 48 year old dog lover said:
"Adolf Hitler was a swine and I thoroughly dissociate myself from his violent and racist policies. However, he did encourage women to become good mothers and I applaud that."
Apparently, mentioning the name "Adolf Hitler" in Germany is a big no-no. No sooner had the words left her lips than a loud alarm sounded in the building and men in brown shirts ran into the studio, their jackboots thundering on the wooden floor, grabbed Ms Herman and took her out to a sacking squad.
A political commentator who wished to rename anonymous, because he was fearful of reprisals, told us:
"This is political correctness gone mad. If a bad man does one good thing in his life, why can't you mention it? Why should that one good thing automatically be seen as bad?"
In between invading Poland and butchering millions of innocent Jews, Gypsies and homosexuals, Hitler introduced classes for good parenting and gave medals to women who were shown to be good mothers. Peering fearfully between the curtains in his house, the political commentator added, ironically:
"In this day and age, it seems that the state prefers tattooed drug addict crack whore mothers to good ones who happen to mention the name of Adolf Hitler."
