ANNE’S ANATOMY

 

Can Anne Frank rest in peace? Apparently not.

First Justin Bieber clowns around in her hiding place in Amsterdam and signs the visitors’ book hoping she would have been a Belieber. Um, not. (I already wrote about this pea brain).

And now, the mother of a seventh grader in Michigan is claiming that unedited version of The Diary of Anne Frank is too graphic for the tender sensibilities of her daughter and her classmates, weaned as they are on a steady diet of YouTube twerking, sexting, and smut. 

“It’s pretty graphic, and it’s pretty pornographic for seventh-grade boys and girls to be reading,” Gail Horalek told reporters at Detroit-based Fox 2. “It’s inappropriate for a teacher to be giving this material out to the kids when it’s really the parents’ job to give the students this information.”

The passage in question Anne writing simply about the anatomy of her genitals. It is about as pornographic as a wave hitting the sand.

Guess who’s got a dirty mind, reading sexual content into pure anatomical description?

And if anything is pornographic about Anne Frank, her family, and everyone else murdered by the Nazis, it’s what was done to her.

I thought about that yesterday when I posted the RIP for Deanna Durbin, so beloved by Anne that Deanna’s photo was put up on the wall.

Gail needs to get over it.

STAR OF BELIEIBER

While on the topic of idiotic and offensive references to the suffering of the Jews in the Holocaust, enter one young man still 31 years away from Lurching, but whose comment about this woman, who would have been nearly 84 had she not be exterminated in a concentration camp, are so patently stupid that I just can’t let them slide.

In other words, Justin Bieber, on tour in Europe where he is singing for his supper when he’s not running around threatening the paparazzi and pulling up his pants, paid a visit to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. As millions have done before him, he signed the guest book.

“Truly inspiring to be able to come here,” he wrote. “Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.”

Okay, so you have to cut JB some slack because we already knew he is a 19-year-old spoiled, rich, egomaniacal object of affection for hordes of young girls crushing on puppy love.

But on the other hand, why should we cut anyone any slack for such unbelievable hubris?

Honestly, Anne Frank had better things to do with her time than moon over dopey cute boys with good hair. I sincerely doubt she would have been a belieber. Gee, I dunno, maybe the Nazis had something to do with that. Or maybe her smarts, good taste, selflessness, and spirit would have too.

She would have seen JB for what he is: A bratty little putz.

Or maybe she would have seen right through JB’s monumental ego. Signing a book that is an homage to one of the most courageous teens who ever lived and making it all about him is what rankles.

Over to you, Canada. He’s all yours!
