WND Scrubs Vox's Nazi Reference
Topic: WorldNetDaily
Remember when WorldNetDaily columnist Vox Day cited the Nazis approvingly as a prior example for removing millions of people from a country? It's gone.

That reference has been deleted from his May 15 column, apparently by orders of WND editor Joseph Farah. Mr. Day writes on his blog:

I actually turned this one in early, so this was clearly on Mr. Farah's orders. I happen to know that he really, really, really didn't like it.

But, to his credit, he didn't get on my case or even shake his finger at me, he merely exercised his prerogative to edit a piece that appears on his web site. His house, his rules, I have no problem with that.

The column contains no indication that it was altered after its posting, nor has WND alerted its readers to that fact. WND has never acknowledged the controversy surrounding Day's column, even as it has played up controversial comments by others.

Day still stands by his original remarks and is still mocking criticism of them.

UPDATE: Thanks to the magic of the Google cache, here's the original, unaltered column.
