Life Magazine vs Julius Streicher’s Der Sturmer

Politcal correctness as dictated by the Jews.

Visit Fritz Berg Archives’s websiteLess than a year after this picture appeared in LIFE, Americans were murdering hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese women and children with napalm and eventually, nuclear bombs.  Is there a connection to this picture and others like it?  If not, why not?  Isn't dehumanizing the intended victim, one of the first steps to murdering him, or her.
“Arizona war worker writes her Navy boyfriend a thank-you for the Jap skull he sent her.”

LIFE magazine, May 22, 1944, page 35—full-page “PICTURE OF THE WEEK” with the following caption (on page 34):
“When he said goodbye two years ago to Natalie Nickerson, 20, a war worker of Phoenix, Ariz., a big, handsome Navy lieutenant promised her a Jap. Last week Natalie received a human skull, autographed by her lieutenant and 13 friends, and inscribed: ‘This is a good Jap–a dead one picked up on the New Guinea beach,’ Natalie, surprised at the gift, named it Tojo. The armed forces disapprove strongly of this sort of thing.”
Life was probably the most popular magazine of that era in the US. If anything remotely similar had appeared in any German publication, large or small, the holocaust promoters would have found it and would use it as proof of German depravity. One can be absolutely certain that nothing so despicable ever appeared anywhere in the German, or Japanese, press. Try to imagine a comparable picture showing a German girl of that era admiring the skull of a departed “good” Jew after nicknaming it “Isaac” or “Elie.” It never happened in Nazi Germany–not even in Julius Streicher’s Der Stûrmer. And yet, Streicher was hung at Nuremberg for his publication while Life is admired in the US as an example of great American journalism.
