“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Breanna Mitchell's irreverence goes viral. Breanna doesn't care. Good for Breanna.

Typically self-involved teenager Breanna Mitchell tweeted this pic during a recent trip to Europe. And predictably the twitter-verse exploded with criticism and condemnation.

I don't see what the big deal is. She's what, 17? You're not allowed to smile, ever, if standing on concentration-camp grounds? This happened 75 years ago, not last week. What is she supposed to do, tweet a weeping selfie? Or a "frownie"? Or how about no selfie at all? It's 2014 people, get over yourselves.

Of course Breanna's reaction to the outrage directed at her embodies the delightful irreverence you'd expect from a teenage girl.

"Like apparently it's such a big deal that I smiled. Good Lord."

I'm with you Breanna.

No selfie at all sounds like the good option.
Even at 17 you don't need to show your fucking face to every one every time unless you suffer a severe egocentrism.
Particularly when your background are barracks that witnessed the consequences of a major event in the political history of Europe, hence should logically get more attention than a spoiled child spreading her face over the internet.
