Moonbattery Corrodes D-Day Museum

Further evidence that moonbattery has limited appeal to the public comes to us from France, where a museum designed primarily to commemorate the heroes who died to liberate that country on D-Day has degenerated into a cave of moonbattery, predictably losing its visitors in the process.

The Memorial Museum in Caen, Normandy has been attempting to transform itself into a "place of reflection on the contemporary world" rather than "the great museum on the Second World War in France," which was its original objective, according to former chief historian Claude Quétel, who was canned for complaining that political correctness had subverted the mission.

"Peace begins at home, in the office, with our neighbors," according to the museum's brochure. This advice wouldn't have been of much use to the 53,000 American, British, and Canadian troops who died at the Battle of Normandy.

The museum now includes sections devoted to "the principal disorders in the world today" and the need for "eco-responsibility."

In 2004, the 60th anniversary of D-Day, attendance dropped from 560,000 to 400,000, and the museum lost €400,000. But not to worry, there's a rescue plan in place. It includes cuts to the guided tours of D-Day landing beaches, and new exhibitions on "Living Without Petrol" and "Father Christmas."

No doubt French taxpayers are being called upon to keep this idiotic abomination afloat.
