Would Neo-Nazis have watched Schindler's List, and thus recognize the music as being from the movie?
 
2014-08-26 02:56:05 PM  
They could have just played any song at all on bagpipes, and it would have kept  everyone away.

Arkanaut: Would Neo-Nazis have watched Schindler's List, and thus recognize the music as being from the movie?


Presumably, any kind of classical music would do.
 
2014-08-26 03:10:30 PM  
Wouldn't they actually like that?  Yeah Oskar saved some of them but the brutal way that the movie showed the conditions of the rest of the Jews would be like porn to a Neo-Nazi...

I watched and would have no idea it was the music to that today.

I've watched Schindler's List twice, and I wouldn't be able to place the music.  It really wasn't the centerpiece of the film.

The only songs I can recall from the film are a tango by Carlos Gardel and "Gloomy Sunday".

They should toss The Lumber Jack Song in there just for an extra good time.

Would probably be more effective (and irritating) to simply play Klezmer music.

There are teabaggers in Sweden? How'd they get there? Put pontoons on their Hoverounds?

They've actually got a surprisingly strong contingent of Wagner fans.

Have them play this on endless loop.

If they were smart enough to "get" it, they'd be smart enough to not be Nazis.

Oh, yay. Swedish neo-Nazis.

Standard rant against Nazi Nordicism: Hitler was a crazy little man. He envisioned this weird hierarchy of racial worth based on "Aryaness," "Aryan" referring to the tall, brave, world-conquering Indo-European warriors that spread out from central Asia and conquered everyone from Ireland to India. Scandinavians were the epitome of Nordic worth.

The problem, though, is that Scandinavians are actually less Indo-European...genetically-speaking...than most of Europe. Y-DNA haplogroup I has a roughly equal share in Scandinavian populations as actual Indo-European ("Aryan") groups, those being primarily R1 (R1a and R1b).

On top of that, Hitler's great-grandfather to an unspecified number of generations was E1b...a group that were in Africa whilst the Aryans were forming in Eurasia.

On top of that, "Aryan" is far more appropriate, as an endonym, to the larger R1a branches. It has echoes in R1b branches, sure, but it was apparently never as big a thing as amongst the R1a peoples.

So, basically...Hitler, who was E1b (from Africa), idolised Scandinavians (less "Aryan" than continental Europeans), and sent Germans (predominantly R1b...Indo-European, but had less use for "Aryan" as a concept than the R1a folk) against Slavs (predominantly R1a, thus "Aryan") because the Slavs were "subhuman."

Hitler was a crazy little man.

You don't need to recognize it. That whole movie is so depressing that the birds will fall out of the sky if you do that.

You know what would be awesome on church bells? The Godfather theme, that's what.

It would have been interesting to see what would have happened if Hitler had access to that sort of modern genetic knowledge...

That's actually what first sprang to my mind when I tried to remember what the Schindler's List theme sounded like, strangely enough.

Just play Hava Nagila. More upbeat, and even neo-nazis will recognize that.

Is Shalom Chaverim sung in Swedish churches? Would be funny if some of the eejits get childhood flashbacks and start singing along.

/Actually surprised that it's still named "German Plaza"

...and got those lily-white Germans slaughtered. Maybe he was more right about Aryans than he knew.

//not really

He probably would have just made shiat up then. Or found some quack scientist who made shiat up for him. Wouldn't be the first time people shaped "facts" to accommodate their narrative.

Or, better yet, just "created" his perfect Aryan soldiers through some kind of selective breeding program based on actual genetic testing of the people and progeny involved.  Given a few generations and access to a modern laboratory, you could probably do quite a bit in terms of manipulating the genome.  Scientists do it all the time with other vertebrates.  There are even more advanced techniques that exist (e.g., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_mouse ), if one felt free to use them on humans.

A handful of nazis is the least of Sweden's problems. They have failed to successfully include their growing immigrant population into Swedish society and have a burgeoning crime problem.

never saw Shindler's List but I have Louis C.K. to thank for burning this image in my head.


oh, and this tactic might work on neo-nazis but it would have no effect on paleo-nazis.

German neo-Nazi fanboys are a hoot on history forums:
"The Russkis were lousy soldiers! Their equipment was crap. We were at the gates of Moscow in 6 months."
"Yup. And three years after that they were at the gates of Berlin. And went in."
"Yeah, but they had way more tanks and people to throw away! It was just numbers, and bad weather!"
"So- you pick fights with people that outnumber you, out-manufacture you and without preparing for fighting in cold weather in a region famous for it- since when does being an idiot earn you bragging rights?"
"RACE TRAITOR! YOU MUST BE TEH JEWISH! GERMANY IS BEST!"

Apparently the police are escorting the neo-nazis and going Ferguson on the counter-protesters. Including a Calvary charge with their horseback police officers.

Weirdly enough, most pro-Wehrmacht posts I've seen are from American history buffs. They tend to know more about the details, which isn't surprising, considering the very different post-war cultures and the relevant attitudes about militarism.

Yeah, but American neo-Nazis aren't nearly as much of a hoot. More rather sad and silly.

Of course. Whilst most nations remember the Nazis as being bloodsucking monsters, to the Swedes they were "best customers".
