Prussian Blue Teen Band 'Marijuana changed us from Nazis to peace-loving hippies'

At the age of 11, blonde-haired, blue-eyed twins Lamb and Lynx Gaede formed a band and saw themselves as the new faces of pop music.



But instead, the girls from Bakersfield, California, would soon be labelled the 'new faces of hate'.

Not surprising when you consider the group they created in 2003 was a neo-Nazi outfit called Prussian Blue - named after a by-product of the poison used to gas millions of Jews in the Holocaust - at the suggestion of White Nationalist leader William Pierce.

Now however, at the age of 20, the twins have radically transformed themselves from hate-spouting extremists to peace-loving hippies.

And the reason for their change? Marijuana.

The girls, who once wore smiley-face Hitler T-shirts, both now have medical marijuana cards, consider themselves 'healers' and say they are 'pretty liberal now'.

'Im stoked that we have so many different cultures,' Lynx said. 'I think its amazing and it makes me proud of humanity every day that we have so many different places and people.'

They said the drug has reignited their creativity, which they now channel in other ways, such as painting.

'We just want to come from a place of love and light,' Lamb said, adding, 'I think were meant to do something more - were healers. We just want to exert the most love and positivity we can.'

1. It's nice to see that kids

can sometimes break from the insanity that some parents force on them.

3. I can't hold any bad feelings for these young women

Their parents, however, are horrid people and used their children for their own twisted views.

4. It should be required

That all Republicans smoke some.If it only worked 10% of the time,that would still be miraculous.

Heck..maybe if we could get the Prez to smoke some again...he might turn progressive.Too much to hope for tho...hmmm?

10. Mandatory shrooming, too. Everyone shall report to the health department once a year...

 

Science has shown it has long-lasting, POSITIVE effects on one's personality.

14. I know a few very well respected neurologists that would agree with you

They both support it for PTSD, and one thinks it would be useful for anyone with lots of stress to have shroom experience once a year.

18. Bullshit. It depends on the person...

Republicans are generally unstable people. They have no personal insight. Their entire ideology is based off being greedy and selfish. They are not the kind of people you want tripping on shrooms. I've been doing psychedelics for over 30 years now and from experience I can say that some people should not be allowed to take drugs. Most Republicans would be high on my list.
Psychedelic experiences are a doorway to the truth. Monks meditate for years and years to achieve that kind of enlightenment. To get that enlightenment without the discipline needed to understand it can really fuck someone up if they aren't prepared. Some people can handle it with the right setting and the right people, others need the years of discipline, and yet others need to just avoid that shit altogether.

11. something magical there, makes you think for yourself, connects you to humanity, enhances creativity

 


no wonder they need to shut that shit down!!


And now isn't it obvious why medical clubs need to be stopped. Some unsuspecting Nazi might go in for treatment and come out...human!

7. It's a complicated thing...

They grew up and were indoctrinated in a very narrow worldview of hatred and ignorance. It's good that they have started to reject the very most vile of those philosophies, but I'm sure they still hold to a lot of the ignorant illusions that white privilege allows, and that their background demanded. It looks like they still have a relationship with their mother as well, so that adds to the tension between where they're going and where they've been. Hopefully with time and more knowledge they will evolve further.

6. They are super cute

I know the first amendment protects them but I would love to see their parents arrested for child endangerment. That kind of hate will slowly kill you inside then outside.

12. Looks like the power of love has overcome the love of power

 

The power of love is so much more than the power of ignorance and money. It looks bad now, but We will overcome!

This give me so much hope for our future. The youth are turning down alcohol and instead smoking in larger numbers.

These Nazis cannot steal everyone's dreams and livelihoods forever...there is going to be a backlash, and it is going to be HUGE!!

More members of the diverse, interesting, and intelligent up and coming generation of young adults.

9. I remember them. They emerged when I was about 15...

 

And I was a complete idiot when I was 15, so I thought it was funny to listen to their garbage.

I'm interested in hearing their new music.

17. Well, that and maturity.

It should be noted that most adults don't view the world the same way they did at the age of 11, whether they smoke marijuana or not.

19. Aww what sweet girls:

From the REST OF THE ARTICLE

Asked whether the Holocaust happened, Lynx replied, '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 added: 'I just think everyone needs to frickin' get over it. That's what I think.'


Fuck them and their fake "turnaround".

20. Give them a break. That they have shaken off as much of

the poison that was poured into their heads as they have is a minor miracle. They're 20 and aren't done evolving yet.

21. Why would they have medical marijuana cards?

I'm assuming they don't have terminal cancer. How easy is it to qualify for that?

23. Mmmm, I don't think so.

 

If you are vapid enough to go along with this shit in the first place, don't expect me to buy your crap later when you realize there isn't any money or respect in being a fucking Nazi.

I never needed pot to not be a racist fuckhead.
