Swastika Sillies

That asinine "Stuff White People Like" blog should do a post about "Comparing things to Nazis or Hitler." We've already covered Bush not being like Hitler, but just so we remember, Bush, You're No Hitler, despite what whiny turd munchers might argue. And closed caption cameras are like any security state, so really, they're like the UK, the USA & Israel, probably like Japan & China & Russia too. So, CCTV, you're no Nazi state, because i really don't think they had video in 1942! OR DID THEY? The Mayans invented Television...

Hitler & Wagner

"I have an enormous desire to commit artistic terrorism." ~Richard Wagner
"With the exception of Richard Wagner", Hitler wrote, "I have no forerunner."
Whoever wants to understand National Socialist Germany must first know Wagner." ~Adolf Hitler

An interesting, although far too slanted piece about Wagner & Hitler by Larry Solomon.

Movie Review- The Empty Mirror

The Empty Mirror (1996) directed by Barry J. Hershey with Norman Rodway as Hitler.
It's the end of the war & Hitler is in his bunker or is he in purgatory? dictating (get it!) an important life overview to his nervous typist. Hitler is having all sorts of visions of characters from his past, & is backed up by a projector showing various Nazi propaganda films. The movie is quite tedious, Norman Rodway doesn't feel like Hitler, he feels more like how American & English text-books want you to feel about Hitler, he looks too mean & too brutal. The lengthy diatribes that Hitler goes into aren't the sort of observations that someone would make about their own life, but are the observations of a pop-academic working up a psychological profile of Hitler to serve present-day propaganda/history aims. The wikipedia page about the movie says, "While not cited in the movie or its credits, the movie is, for all intents and purposes, a dramatized version of Robert Waite's psychohistory of Hitler, The Psychopathic God (1993, Da Capo Press). For example, the movie includes several psychological theories (Hitler's speculated fear of decapitation) and his enjoyment of the artwork of Franz Stuck, theories which only Waite has put forward." The movie seems based on a one-man show, which would definitely be a better format for the whole package, however, the writers seemed to have a hard time humanizing Hitler, & getting past his iconic status & historical role, which makes this movie into 118 minutes of tedious "what we think you should think Hitler thought." A reviewer on the IMDb said, "He was an example of a human problem. Only the scale, intensity and speed not the essence of Hitler's results were distinctive. Viewing Hitler as a man should not be confused with feeling sorry for him or excusing him. Humanity deserves and requires a complete and accurate explanation which cannot happen as long as there is demonization in the process."

It Could Happen Here.

State repression & out of control government are just part of the cycle & nature of political systems. The 20th Century was host to a new stage of the state, which was the industrial socialist totalitarian model, embodied by Nazi Germany, Communist Russia & Communist China. The revolutions against the old orders create a vacuum, which can then be quickly filled with something just as terrible, if not worse. The bureaucratic socialist governments tend towards a cold & mechanistic view of humanity, where people are reduced to numbers & their lives become statistics. Not unlike democracy, the socialist state claims to do best for the great mass of people & those that do not fit into this collective humanity must be transformed, sedated or destroyed.

Secret Swastika: The Wacky Swastika Mix-Up

From the CBC. Toy pandas bearing swastikas a cultural mix-up.

Tiny, cheerful pandas sporting what appears to be a Nazi symbol are not what you'd expect to find in a festive Christmas cracker. But some people in northern Alberta and Toronto found exactly that when they pulled apart their holiday poppers. The manufacturer of Christmas crackers says a cross-cultural misunderstanding was behind the saluting toy pandas wearing military-style hats with a symbol similar to the Nazi swastika. Martin Walpert, president of Montreal-based Walpert Industries, said the symbol is not what it appears to be. "It's not the Nazi symbol. It is a Buddhist sign. The Nazi symbol goes in the opposite direction and it's at a different angle," said Walpert. "That's not what people see but that's what it is," he said (possibly the greatest quote i've read coming from the manufactured news in a long time! -s). Walpert said his company ordered only plain pandas for the crackers from the manufacturer in China. He said they ran out of the plain ones and filled the rest of the order with the pandas featuring the symbol. Because the symbol is viewed very differently in China than it is in the Western world, the workers wouldn't have foreseen that a symbol of luck and prosperity would be mistaken for a symbol of hate.
Walpert personally called some of the people who received the bears sporting the symbol to apologize. Walpert said he hoped only 10 or so of the swastika bears made it into the order. He said the company's quality control measures will be even more stringent in the future. "So that things don't happen such as you get some sort of a religious symbol inside the cracker that shouldn't be there," he said. The swastika, both the clockwise and counter-clockwise versions, is an ancient symbol, appearing in many religions around the world. The Buddhist symbol is called "wan" in Chinese and "manji" in Japanese. The symbol also appears in Hindu, Celtic and Jewish cultures, as well as native cultures in both North and South America. Web sites devoted to the symbol show diverse examples of pre-Nazi uses of the symbol, such as a "lucky" Coca-Cola watch fob from 1925 in the shape of a swastika and a 1916 girls' hockey team called the Edmonton Swastikas. The cross-cultural confusion over the symbol also forced Nintendo to recall a Pokemon card featuring the "manji" in 1999 after a complaint by the Anti-Defamation League. The Anti-Defamation League was informed that not everyone cares what they think.

Hitler Perfume

Danny Shoup alerted The Daily Hitler to a picture on FAIL blog: Indian Hitler Handkerchief Perfume. I couldn't find any other info on it, but Danny sent this quote from Mein Kampf about Jews & their "cultural perfume" so it must be related right? Right?

"Where the destiny and existence of a people are at stake, all obligation toward beauty ceases. The most unbeautiful thing there can be in human life is and remains the yoke of slavery... Certainly we don't have to discuss these matters with the Jews, the most modern inventors of this cultural perfume. Their whole existence is an embodied protest against the aesthetics of the Lord's image." ~Hitler in Mein Kampf.

17 Strange Facts About Hitler

17 Strange Facts About Hitler From Uncle John's SUPREMELY SATISFYING Bathroom Reader.

PERSONAL APPEARANCE
• Hitler never allows anyone to see him while he is naked or bathing. He refuses to use cologne or scents of any sort on his body
• No matter how warm he feels, Hitler will never take off his coat in public
• In 1923, Nazi press secretary Dr. Sedgwick tried to convince Hitler to get rid of his trademark mustache or grow it normally. Hitler answered: "Do not worry about my mustache. If it is not the fashion now, it will be later because I wear it!"

SOCIAL BEHAVIOR
• While dining with the others, Hitler will allow the conversation to linger on general topics, but after a couple of hours he will inevitably begin one of his many monologues. These speeches are flawless from start to finish because he rehearses them any time he gets a moment.
• His favorite topics include: "When I was a soldier," "When I was in Vienna," "When I was in prison," and "When I was the leader in the early days of the party."
• If Hitler begins speaking about Wagner and the opera, no one dares interrupt him. He will often sermonize on this topic until his audience falls asleep.

PERSONAL HABITS
• Hitler has no interest in sports or games of any kind and never exercised, except for an occasional walk.
• He paces frequently inside rooms, always to the same tune that he whistles to himself and always diagonally across the room, from corner to corner
• Hitler’s handwriting is impeccable. When famous psychologist Carl Jung saw Hitler’s handwriting in 1937, he remarked: "Behind this handwriting I recognize the typical characteristics of a man with essentially feminine instinct."

ENTERTAINMENT
• Hitler loves the circus. He takes real pleasure in the idea that underpaid performers are risking their lives to please him.
• He went to the circus on several occasions in 1933 and sent extremely expensive chocolates and flowers to the female performers. Hitler even remembered their names and would worry about them and their families in the event of an accident.
• He isn’t interested in wild animal acts, unless there is a woman in danger
• Nearly every night Hitler will see a movie in his private theatre, mainly foreign films that are banned to the German public. He loves comedies and will often laugh merrily at Jewish comedians. Hitler even liked a few Jewish singers, but after hearing them he would remark that it was too bad he or she wasn’t Aryan.
• Hitler staff secretly made films for him of torture and execution of political prisoners, which he very much enjoyed viewing. His executive assistants also secured pornographic pictures and movies for him.
• He loves newsreels - especially when he is in them.
• He adores gypsy music, Wagner’s operas, and especially American college football marches and alma maters.
• To excite the masses, he also uses American College football-style music during his speeches. His rallying cry - "Sieg Heil!" - was even modeled after the cheering techniques used by American football cheerleaders.

Not So Secret Swastika: Sid Vicious Anarchie Pour Le UK

Alot of uncomplicated, sincere types hate the Sex Pistols & especially Malcolm McLaren for his orchestration of the Sex Pistols beyond Punk & into Pop, but not so much pop music (although i'd argue that they & Punk are POP), but Pop Art in real life. You'll hear people say that real life isn't art, but they are spoiling it for everyone. The artistic concept of an English Punk invading Paris with a giant swastika t-shirt is pure gold. As we already knew, it doesn't tickle everyone's tickle bone, but it sure got mine! Packing the Great Rock&Roll Swindle with all of these Sex Pistols products was really the icing on the cake. This is the next level. This is what i want.
