atomic-age: brainiac-dumdum: a satin handkerchief browned with Hitler's blood.

That's almost more like a relic (using the "body parts of saints kept for reasons of worship" definition) than memorabilia.

I agree, plus, who wants the autograph of someone they opposite of admire? I'm going out on a limb and saying he does admit Hitler.


Any answer other than "my grandfather brought this back from World War II" and I'm going to think you're a farking weirdo.

I met a lot of dudes who collected Nazi shiat, or always played Nazis in LARP or video games.  Eventually, the "What?  I think this shiat is cool" starts to turn into "Well, the average soldier was just fighting for his country" turns into "The Waffen SS was just elite troops.  It would be like joining the Rangers today.  I respect that."  turns into "You know, if they had just invaded the USSR, think of all the problems they would have prevented" turns into "Auschwitz wasn't much different than Manzanar.  It's just being on a defensive footing meant they had problems getting food and medicine to the camps."  to "God, I bet Hitler's testicles would feel wonderful in my mouth."

Mikey1969: jtown: The survival of such "memorabilia" can only be achieved with help from Nazi sympathizers wishing to pass on the torch.

Bull.  shiat.

How do you explain history without having any of the symbols to show?  There's a heck of a difference between seeing 3x2" black and white picture in a history book and seeing the actual objects created by a culture of insanity.  Owning such an object does not mean the owner automatically accepts and extols the ideals of the object's creator(s).  The objects can serve as a reminder and a warning of what can happen if you let someone like Hitler remain in power.

I'm not saying Glenn Beck doesn't dress up in an SS uniform and choke himself while he jerks off but simply owning those objects doesn't mean he does.

Yeah, but the "bloody handkerchief" takes it all into a decidedly freaky direction. If he wanted something that had touched Hitler specifically as a part of his collection, he could have stopped at the signed copy of Mein Kampf.


One does wonder: if you're the sort who would own Hitler's bloody handkerchief, wouldn't you also be the sort who might, in a moment of curiosity and weakness, kiss it? And if it were me, if I were the sort to own Hitler's bloody handkerchief--and let me be clear that I'm not--, and the sort to kiss it, I would also be of the mind to taste the bloodspot.

Yup, guys like Beck are tards, schizo, or both.

Beck goes on about how big government sucks, while admiring Nazi Germany, which was all about centralized big government.

The term Nazi is a portmanteau of national and socialist.   Education or job training were guaranteed to all Germans during the Nazi regime.   Universal health care was instituted for all Germans.  Job protections, including paid vacations, and old age pensions were guaranteed.  The Nazis undertook massive public works projects, including mass transit and construction of the autobahn.  On and on it went.  This is what Hitler had to say about capitalism: "We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions."Hitler thought more highly of the Soviets than he did of the Americans.


"Portmateau" my ass.

And you are a poseur.

Either you quote Hitler out if sheer ignorance of how what he and Scheer did with the likes of AG Bayer, Krupp and the rest who actually financed the Reich or you chose to make a point out of linking him with Socialism.

The latter part of your statement confirms the former, since Nazism was developed and flourished out of the same ethic that still drives the conservative establishment in the US today - an abiding hated of Boleshevism and a fear of it's spread.

If you pretend to understand history take that 2nd course at the community college and STFU.

A friend of mine once wrote a Limbaugh/Beck snuff slash fic, just to prove he could.  Don't think he put it online though.

TuteTibiImperes: remus: So, let me get this straight, some people believe all these artifacts should be destroyed and completely forgotten about?  Yes, let's forget history so that we can repeat it.  It's GOOD to keep these artifacts and display them.  We NEED to be reminded about these horrors so that we can learn a lesson.  There is a group of people who deny the whole thing even happened.  If we get rid of these things, then how do we prove they are crazy and not correct?  How do we remind our children of it to let them know not to repeat it?

I agree that preserving history is important, and we shouldn't try to white-wash the past, but it seems somehow wrong to be a personal collector, that almost crosses the line into admiration, sort of like people who collect serial killer memorabilia.  Such items should belong to museums and historical societies, not personal collections IMO.

I have a series of books of the Pictorial History of the Third Reich.  Got it from my dad.  Haven't looked at them in ages, but when I was younger it was a damn grim reminder that yeah, this happened, Hitler was a human being, and figuring out how that happened instead of demonizing him as simply a monster was an important thing to do.  Pretty sure I scared a friend of a friend a little bit when I pulled one of those books from the shelf, but I'm sure as hell not going to give them away even if I haven't opened them in years upon years (lest they fall into the wrong hands, to say the least).  It's a grim reminder of how low things can get and that's all.

But collecting memorabilia, sh-t... I never, ever EVER got that.  Unless it was passed through a relative who took it away from the goddamn Nazis.

Blathering Idjut: On the other hand, this little display is a celebration, not historical preservation.  It bears no relation to any historical study of the matter, aside from the physical presence of the artifacts.
