I think it is important to preserve and study our history from a non-biased, objective approach. History is what we were, not what we want it to be in retrospect, and we cant take the good without taking the bad. That being said, for a couple hundred bugs I would buy a signed copy of Mein Kampf due to its historical significance.

Yes. He needs to do more research on the race mongrel issue to complete his thesis on Obama.

I'm going to guess no one anyone knows. People who collect rare books tend not to be famous.

Oh right this is Fark. Then I guess it was someone from the other political party because they're a bunch of Nazi lovers and racists. Hate them so much.

We can rule out anyone connected with Fox News, as this would imply that at some point, one of them had read a book.

2014-03-03 02:05:26 PM  
while i'd hope it was bought by a museum where it can be displayed and used to educate people about Hitler's madness its my guess it was about by a rich white supremacist.

my 2nd preference would be bought by a rich jewish man to use as toliet paper.

I agree, if I had $65k that I had nothing to do with, I wouldn't have hesitated to dump it on this.

It isn't like I would read it, being in German and all, but it is a part of history. Just like I wouldn't mind picking up a Hitler painting. Neither would be a display piece, though.
 
2014-03-03 02:07:32 PM  
I give it two months until it shows up on Pawn Stars, where they'll offer the owner $75 because it was a pretty popular book at one time. Then they'll briefly explain the Holocaust to Chumlee.

That was a great show.  Was what X files and Lost should have been: they actually answered at least _some_ of the mysteries and advanced the plot with continuity.  As if the writers had an idea where it was going.

At least seasons 1-3 1/2. Off the rails a little bit at the end, but I didn't dislike it as some other folks did.

Like Glenn Beck would be able to read anything not written in American.

No, not "English." AMERICAN.

Actually, Glenn Beck is a collector of Nazi memorabilia.

... he actually likes wearing the uniforms he's collected.  Make of that what you will.


He's gotta have an excellent tailor, as I imagine the SS were in shape.

Well, I'm pretty sure it wasn't Sarah Palin. Celebrities don't pay for anything and besides, she doesn't read. Like the little girl form the Hillaire Belloc poem, who never read and was tossed by a bull as a result, she was very early:

Confirmed in her instinctive guess
That literature breeds distress.


By the same principle, most of the Tea Party and Republican Party are excluded unless they bought it as a gift or souvenir without any intent to read it.

Maybe it was bought by the History Channel as a publicity stunt, but they seem to have given up John Wayne movies and Hitler for aliens and ghosties and things that go bump in the ratings.

Get a copy at the library and put it in a museum.  Might cost you a buck in late fees.

"It's in very nice condition, and a wonderful collector's piece, but I can't give you what you want for it. There just isn't a market for something like this, and it would be taking up space in my shop. I can give you, say, $100 for it. And that's being generous."

CSB time:

I was in the rare book room of Colorado University's library for a class project.  The librarian there showed us some of their extra rare things in a protective glass case.

First was a folio of Shakespeare's.  Then a letter by Emily Dickinson.  Next was a book with a small autograph.  As I leaned in to read what it was, the librarian told us it was an autographed copy of Mein Kampf.

I got the hell out of there.  Immediately.  I get the historical value of it, but it was just farking creepy.

Victor Davis Hanson. Revisionist historian who frequently championed Donald Rumsfeld's failed micromanagement of Iraq with asinine comparisons to ancient Greek and Roman occupations in the right wing press.
