The Silliness of Crowds

What the H**L is wrong with our culture, that so many people would viciously attack Justin Bieber for saying he admired Anne Frank, and hopes she would have liked his music. Reminds me of the hysteria that resulted in the burning of witches, and the lynching of Leo Frank. Some people called his comment silly. I think finding fault with the comment is very silly and nutty, and an example of the meanness we seem to be addicted to, to keep our adrenaline rush going.



Eva Schloss was a childhood friend of the inspirational writer before their families were forced into hiding, and says it's very possible that she would have in fact been a Belieber:

"She probably would have been a fan. Why not? He’s a young man and she was a young girl, and she liked film stars and music."


The Anne Frank House also defended the pop star and said they were just happy he came by and showed an appreciation for the history.
