'Nipster' sounds more like someone with topknots or bamboo swords

peterthx: Diogenes: DeArmondVI: Well, to be fair, Hitler was a failed artist who blamed others/the system for not recognizing his perceived artistic genius.

This is why I got a very uneasy feeling when Dubya took up painting.

No, you got an uneasy feeling because you're douching up a FARK thread with politics and deep down you feel bad.


Sometimes a joke is just a joke, dude.  And I don't feel bad in the slightest.  But I'll be sure to carefully review my posts if I see you in a thread to make sure I don't upset your sensitivities.

Bringing politics to a Nazi thread...next you'll accuse me of bringing a bathing suit to the pool.

dittybopper: I was under the impression that the Nazis were pretty much always stylish.


I'm not sure that was so much "stylish" as it was "understanding that human beings respond predictably to structured, hierarchical ornamentation." See also any uniformed military, the Catholic church, BSA, etc etc etc.

Not to say that all those organizations are like Nazis, of course.

I was under the impression that the Nazis were pretty much always stylish.  They had a real thing for aesthetics.   What with the uniforms, regalia, and all that.

Doesn't mean they weren't monsters, just that they were *STYLISH* monsters.

Do I have to do the heavy lifting here?  Here's the first Nipster joke:

Why did the nipster burn his hands?

He trying to open the oven before it was cool.


/sorry.

//really, I am.

It is a fairly simple phenomenon: People are unfairly blamed for what they did not do, so they hate the haters, justifiably.

Once they cross that line, they calculate that they might as well do wrong if they are going to get blamed for it, so they essentially seek revenge against their tormentors.

Race--baters in the USSA have been doing that to whites for years, and quite a few of them fall in the same trap.

dittybopper: Slowdog: I would have thought that, no matter how much I hate them, at least hipsters hate Nazis.  And I would have thought that, while irredeemably evil, at least Nazis hate hipsters.  But no, now we've got this vortex of fail caused by Nazi hipsters.  That is a Venn diagram I was not expecting.  Also, FTA:

In recent years, a number of extreme-right hip-hop acts have emerged in Germany... There is now neo-Nazi techno (biggest act: DJ Adolf) and neo-Nazi reggae.

What The everlovin' fark.


Get up, stand up.  Stand up for your Reich.

Son of Thunder: NOT going to read three pages of "This attention whore Nazi is a Nazi attention whore".

I do wonder, though, if this is a diseased variant on the Evil is Cool thing.  Less pathological people know that Darth Vader is cooler than Luke, that Cobra is cooler than GIJoe, and that Doctor Doom is cooler than Reed Richards, and so we buy t-shirts with the Cobra logo (I wear a Doctor Doom necktie when I give my students final exams, and I'm looking for a good Dalek tie), but we do not take it into the real world.  Take the Nazis' esthetic that has been mentioned in the thread (and I agree, those Solingen knives are awesome-looking), and add one attention-whore with a bit of psychopathy, and you get Nazi hipsters



Shouldn't your shirt say "Darth Grader"?

There are three different Dalek neckties on Etsy, by the way.

Hannah Arendt has argued that a similar thing occurred when the Nazis came to power. Even when people realized Nazis were moustache-twirlingly evil, they still accepted it because it was a really admirable kind of evil. People love competent villains.

Well, some of that could well have been "I can't do anything about it now, or I'll end up in a Gestapo prison.  Or worse.".

Another part of it could have simply been that people don't like to admit that they farked up, and that the organization they've supported could be that bad, because that makes *THEM* that bad, at least by proxy, and most people don't consider themselves to be evil.


Kind of like how a lot of people who ought to know better claim that The War of Northern Agression was
about 'state's rights' and not slavery?

Yeah, but it was a bit more than that.  They put some real effort into how the uniforms looked, into their architecture, their symbols, and even arguably into how their weapons looked.


Hitler was a bit of an artist and Albert Speer who played a major role and was about as much of a friend to Hitler as anyone was an architect. A lot of the imagery came from Speer.

He was the one who created the iconic "cathedral of light" for a rally: www.imd.tu-bs.de
