History Lessons Must Be Difficult At This School....

A PTA spokeswoman said the stall and its seller were not known to the organisers and the charity would ban such items from sale in the future.
She added: “A seller has contacted us to report the stall. This stall is unknown to us and as reported, would certainly be inappropriate for any car boot, school-based or not. We have never encountered this before and will be amending our website and flyers to reflect our views. I have informed the lady who raised the issue that this is the action that we would be taking.”
These offensive 'items' being...?

Guns? Pornography? Torture implements?
A woman photographed the items, which included decorative objects adorned with swastikas and German World War Two military medals

How on earth did we manage to sink to this level of intolerance and create a situation where that intolerance is rewarded. Where safe spaces and any vexatious complaint is taken seriously and is considered normal and acceptable. One day we are going to have to face threats that are genuine. How are we going to manage that? Tantrums, hiding away, retreating to La la land and remonstrating against it I do not believe is going make them go away.

Many of the commenters on that site are in full agreement with this, so there is some hope.

Not a problem for the Met, which is fully prepared for any such emergency. Operation Boot Sale, incorporating almost acceptable levels of incidental killing or wounding of non-combatants, can air-drop trained teams of specially equipped plod and dogs, to seize offensive WW2 memorabilia; zap suspect handlers and arrest anyone in the immediate vicinity of the crime scene for....(yes, you guessed it) 'public order offences.'

It does appear that certain recent history is being rewritten. For what purpose I wonder. Could it be possible that a future generation, ignorant of 20th century history, might consider genocide? Erase past horrors from memory and you will surely revisit those same horrors.

Antisthenes, When those real threats appear and the snowflakes realise that the refugees and immigrants that they are so keen to foist on us really do mean to destroy us and our culture they will be forced to turn to those people that they despise and deride,the white working class male.
Those knuckle dragging racists that like to get drunk and fight and have a healthy contempt for the weak and spoiled brats that have made careers from sneering at them while praising the degenerate and backward culture of their their imported hordes.
as the Bard said "self love is not so great a crime as self neglect"

Until comments are no longer allowed...

"Could it be possible that a future generation, ignorant of 20th century history, might consider genocide? "

There's plenty of it being committed now!

"...they will be forced to turn to those people that they despise and deride,the white working class male."

By which time, it may well be far too late...
