In fairness, Hitler ate a bullet and wrote his own book.

Two things President racoon hands has yet to do.

I'm assuming he was talking about their free health care and education. I know Twitler did a lot of work to try to get you all free health insurance, because I've seen how thick the book was that his administration published.

Upon making that same comment, someone pointed out to me that he also killed the man who killed Hitler.

So it's kind of a wash.

Sadly, this isn't an uncommon expression amongst older Boomers, especially if they have German ancestry. I remember hearing it plenty growing up in Cincinnati in 70's. I even had a high school English teacher reference it in the 80's. It's like the southerner "lost cause" myth about the Civil War. It is very difficult for someone to acknowledge their heritage could have done something so appalling.

I then pointed out that he killed the man who killed the man who killed hitler, and that it is, in fact, Hitlers all the way down.

There, I think that pretty much covers the last thread.

If you're saying anything about Hitler, other than "I'm glad he's dead, and I wish he'd died 30 years earlier," then you are wrong, probably a psychopath, and undoubtedly a member of the GQP.

"Donald Trump reportedly owned a copy of Adolf Hitler's speeches and kept them in his bedside cabinet.
A 1990 Vanity Fair article about billionaire businessman stated that Mr Trump's then wife Ivana, said her husband owned a copy of "My New Order" - a printed collection of the Nazi leader's speeches.
Marie Brenner, the article's author, wrote: "Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler's collected speeches, 'My New Order', which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed."

Lost cause. Bullshiat.

I have German ancestry. What we did to the Jews and the Poles is unforgivable. Unforgivable.

As for the civil war.....now somebody is talking trash. Cause the Yankees won and the southerners lost.

THX 1138: Hitler got Volkswagen up and running...


Maybe positive isn't the right description. I can't recall seeing this in a VeeDub ad campaign:

The Volkswagen company originated during the Third Reich in an attempt to create an affordable car for the German people. Volkswagen used both Jewish and non-Jewish forced labor, primarily from eastern Europe. The company operated four concentration camps and eight forced-labor camps on its property.

He was a decorated veteran who was wounded in combat.  So plus 2 for that. (More than you can say about 45.)

He was also the most evil person ever to ever wall the face of the earth and responsible for more than 80 million deaths an countless crimes against humanity.  So, minus several billion for that.

On the whole, to be fair I'd have to say that Hitler was far worse than Trump, luckily Trump never had a chance to catch up.
 
2021-07-07 6:24:56 PM  
It's a trick question. Hitler was a liberal and all liberals are socialists which are also communists. No communist can do anything good except for make fried rice. I don't see any Hitler recipes for fried rice around here, do you?

Eh, this is pretty much certainly a lie.

The source is John Kelley, a discredited former Trump administration stooge with no credibility who's been desperately making up lie after like to try to provoke some sore of controversy that'll get the spotlight pointed back at him.

No one gives a shiat about his latest bullshiat fabrication about how he was totally the real hero of the white house constantly keeping Trump back from some imaginary "worse" state.  We were all alive at the time, Kelley, we know for a fact that this isn't true.  We farking watched you be complicit in all of Trump's crimes with 100% enthusiastic willingness and caught you out on the constant streams of blatant falsehoods you spent years parroting on his behalf.  We don't believe you, fark off and die.

// I mean... the only book that we actually know for sure Trump has ever read in his life was a book of Hitler's speeches, so I get why Kelley thought this might be a credible lie to sell to the press, but no, fark off.

// Yes, "the only book".  We have some almost-certain evidence that Trump has never actually read the books he claims to have written, amusingly.

According to wiki -  "the all-black SS uniform was designed by SS members Karl Diebitsch (artist) and Walter Heck (graphic designer). The Hugo Boss company was one of the companies that produced these black uniforms for the SS. By 1938, the firm was focused on producing Wehrmacht uniforms and later also uniforms for the Waffen-SS.[10]"

I had the(looking backwards) very unfortunate instance of meeting Marge Schott in 1991 at the tender age of 10. She signed a team picture of the then Reds who coming off a world series win, couldn't win a game to save their farking lives. She was nice enough in person, talked about the recently passed away fan favorite dog, and I was on my way to watch the Reds lose to the Mets in a sub par performance. It was a few years before I learned of how much of a nazi she was and shudder to think about the incident.
 
2021-07-07 6:55:30 PM  
Oh ffs.

These f*cking morons need to understand that some people are so irredeemably evil that saying "well, they had good ideas" with their Little Orphan Annie eyes just doesn't cut it. Maybe some of the ideas were good, but you better not qualify them by saying "well, Hitler" or "well Stalin" or "Well, Genghis Khan". Which idea did you like so much? If it was that good, it will stand on its own; but if you're qualifying the idea by saying the person's name first, then you're just admitting you really like Hitler (or Stalin, or the Great Khan) but "only because their ideas were so cool" which is b/s.

Which one of Hitler's ideas were so good you can overlook all his bad ones, is what I'd like to know. Let's hear it.

Well actually, there are many different types of pizza cutters, some of which have two points. In fact, it's a common practice in Italy to cut pizza with scissors and there are even ones that are produced for just this purpose.

It may not be boomers really, but the generation before sure did, and many of them fought in the war. Marge Schott, owner of the Cincinnati Reds in the 80s and 90s said it publicly. MLB eventually made her sell the team. We both grew up in Cincinnati so I could relate to the post. Hell, I bet there are GenXers living there now who feel the same way.
