Former Nazi teen singers ‘pretty liberal now
Most teens and pre-teens go through passing phases. For Prussian Blue songbirds Lamb and Lynx Gaede, Nazism was a short-lived childhood interest.
In an exclusive interview with The Daily, the 19-year-old twins revealed that they have abandoned most of their highly publicized white nationalist beliefs, which infuriated the nation nearly six years ago when the girls were 13, donning Hitler shirts, and promoting white power through their band.
“Im not a white nationalist anymore,” Lamb told the iPad-only news publication in her first interview in half a decade. “My sister and I are pretty liberal now.”
Lambs twin sister Lynx, who once expressed a desire to preserve the Caucasian race, claims to be a huge fan of diversity now. “Personally, I love diversity,” Lynx seconded. “Im stoked that we have so many different cultures. I think its amazing and it makes me proud of humanity every day that we have so many different places and people.”
But the Bakersfield, Calif., girls werent always so “stoked” about people of different races. The very name of their band, Prussian Blue, pays homage to the girls German background and blue eyes. In 2006, the Gaedes sparked outrage with their song “Hate for Hate: Lamb Near the Lane.” The song has eyebrow-raising lyrics, such as, “If the white men wont battle for life and race, the women and children, the terror will face.”
Lamb co-wrote the tune with late pen pal David Lane, a member of the white nationalist group The Order who was jailed for his involvement in the killing of Jewish television show host Alan Berg. In 2005, Lynx said she wanted to keep “[her] people” white.
“Were proud of being white, we want to keep being white,” Lynx told ABC six years ago. “We want our people to stay white … we dont want to just be, you know, a big muddle. We just want to preserve our race.”
The Gaede twins, who have publicly questioned aspects of the Holocaust, have chalked up their earlier views to ignorance, naivete, and a cloistered upbringing. Regardless of their shift in opinions, the girls havent totally removed themselves from their white nationalist identity.
When it comes to the Holocaust, Lynx told The Daily, “I think certain things happened. I think a lot of the stories got misconstrued. I mean, yeah, Hitler wasn’t the best, but Stalin wasn’t, Churchill wasn’t. I disagree with everybody at that time.”
Lamb said its time for the world to move on from the Holocaust already.
“I just think everyone needs to frickin get over it,” Lamb said. “Thats what I think.”
