image for Historical re-enactment group bans Nazi uniforms
Quite literally, "political correctness gone mad"

A Lancashire WW2 re-enactment group have banned the use of Nazi uniforms in re-enactment events, claiming that the use of such imagery is controversial and offensive. The group are particularly worried about sensitive liberals who might see the symbols of the Third Reich and choke on their lattes.

Some of the re-enactment group have protested at the ban, saying that it was "political correctness gone mad." One member was quoted as saying "whatever next, they'll be telling us we can't do our gas chamber simulation any more."

The protesters have written a formal letter to complain about the ban, saying that it will undermine historical accuracy. Since all German uniforms and weapons will be banned, the battle re-enactment scenes will appear to depict the British army slaughtering unarmed civilians.

Other groups are considering a similar restrictions. The Crucifixion Re-enactment Society is due to decide whether it will ban the cross from future events on the grounds that it might offend Christians.
