Howl Hitler, heh heh… using the modern day political correctness and Muslim victimhood “whine industry” logic in thinking…. all of today’s neo-Nazis should be screaming for a lawyer and claiming that they’re deeply offended. KGS

Papers just released by the German Foreign Office reveal Adolf Hitler’s regime was increasingly angry that the animal, which had been taught to raise its paw mimicking the Nazi salute, was mocking the Fuhrer.
