Hitler




via Smithsonian Amid the collection of thugs, sycophants, stone-eyed killers and over-promoted incompetents who comprised the wartime leadership of Nazi Germany, Joseph Goebbels stood out. For one thing, he was genuinely intelligent—he had earned…

Thanks to jasonpaulhayes for the comment. As Pope or Hitler explains: This is a response to the Pope’s claim that the Nazi movement was atheist. When it was nothing of the sort….


Biomen Hitler CommercialReports Ayla Jean Yackley on Reuters:

A Turkish shampoo commercial featuring an enraged Adolf Hitler is a “huge insult to human rights” and should be withdrawn, leaders of the country’s Jewish community said on Monday. The 13-second television spot for Biomen shampoo shows black-and-white archival footage of the Nazi leader at a political rally. Dubbed in Turkish, he shouts that men should not use women’s shampoo.




Theo Haser & FamilyVia BBC News:

As a child, Theo Haser was a loyal member of the Hitler Youth. But decades later, haunted by the horror of the Holocaust, he converted to Judaism.

As a young boy, growing up amid the nationalist frenzy of Nazi Germany, Theo Haser idolised Hitler.

When the fuehrer came to his hometown of Munich to visit, Theo and his father were at the front of the crowd reaching out to touch his hand.

“I know if I was able to shake his hand I probably wouldn’t have washed for a few months,” he recalls.

Seventy years later, in a bid to come to terms with his Nazi past, Theo has become a Jew.

“I wanted to be part of a community, this was something I had never felt in my life,” he says. “I wasn’t running away from something, I was joining something entirely new.”

Hitler PotSteve Elliott writes at Toke of the Town:

Sieg High? Just when you think you’ve heard every possible reason for cultivating cannabis, some imaginative farmer comes along to prove you wrong.

A 42-year-old Nebraska man told police “Adolf Hitler made me grow it,” after they discovered marijuana plants in his West Omaha home, reports Jodi Baker at WOWT.

The Omaha Police Department’s narcotics unit served a court-ordered search warrant on Darin Badami’s home near 114th and West Center Road on Wednesday morning. The man’s unique excuse didn’t get him out of being arrested on felony charges.

For those of a historical bent, Hitler, despite being born on April 20, was a non-smoker who initiated the first anti-smoking campaign in modern history.


Dear Friend Hitler is a lighthearted Bollywood romp, presumably filled with dancing, based on “Hitler’s love for India and how he indirectly contributed to Indian independence.” Anupam Kher and Neha Dhupia star…


Jordan 'StacheDavid Griner writes on AdFreak:

That new Michael Jordan campaign for Hanes, really does have people buzzing, though it’s not Jordan’s “lie-flat collar” that they’re fixated on. Viewers instead seem to be stupefied by his attempt to bring back the “Hitler mustache,” which has pretty soundly been out of fashion since, you know, Hitler.

Technically called a “toothbrush mustache,” this facial styling was actually quite popular in the 1920s, and still makes the occasional appearance on the faces of foul-tempered tyrants like Robert Mugabe and J. Jonah Jameson. Maybe Jordan feels he simply transcends the clear cultural need to avoid looking like history’s most vile psychopath. Maybe he’s on a quest to reclaim a symbolic styling of the industrial working class, and a mediocre underwear ad seemed like the right forum.

Or maybe the copywriters simply loved the irony of mocking some poor guy’s “bacon neck” while the star of the ad blatantly sports a damn Hitler ‘stache.


Downfall ParodyNein! Nein! Nein! Gottverdammt YouTube! Gottverdammt Constantin Film! Es ist wahr! Mein Leben ist vorbei.

What the hell YouTube, you did this on Hitler’s birthday?!? WTF. Reports Mashable:

The movie studio responsible for the award-winning, German-Austrian film Downfall (German: Der Untergang) has asked YouTube to take down several videos from the massively popular subtitled “Hitler finds out…” meme, and the site has complied.Search YouTube and you’ll still find hundreds of Downfall parodies, but click through to some of the bigger ones and you’ll now get the message, “This video contains content from Constantin Film, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.”

Downfall No More...

Yep, all the ones we have on disinfo.com are gone…
