Teen Supremists? Oh, Heil No!

Snagged from Salon.

New York Daily News: "Mag tells 'Nazi' singers: Heil, no!"
Teen People nixed a story about Hitler-loving teenybopper twins Prussian Blue - amid outrage that the glossy had promised to avoid the words "hate," "supremacist" and "Nazi" in its piece on the racist singing sisters.

A Web-based teaser for the February story originally called the hatemongering duo "aspiring musicians" and compared them to wide-eyed sensations Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

These are twins raised to be virulently racist by their family, and they've been all over the news the past few weeks, I guess because of the incongruity of such young, and almost angelic looking children having thoughts and beliefs so foul and rank. Anyway, I just want to know what Teen People were thinking, and what this one junior staffer was thinking in compromising the magazine. O.K., it's Teen People, but even their low standards must leave room for trying to improve its readers -- it couldn't very well do that if it 'soft-focused' the girls to make them look less spiteful than they really are.
