The Only Good Thing In Hitler was a Bullet
Kanye West recently wore a gimp mask and praised Adolf Hitler. He said there was some good in Hitler. I’d argue yes - but with a caveat. The only good thing in Hitler was the bullet that went through his brain. Hitler and the Nazis were sick fucks. They were serial killers operating on such a scale that a new word had to be coined to describe their crime: genocide. The Nazis turned the lights out in the eyes of millions of people that should have been looking into the eyes of others with love. They were responsible for the murder of babies, women, children. They were responsible for bloodshed, chokings, hangings, people drowned in filth. They were responsible for corpses rotting in the open. They were responsible for entire family trees being torn out by the roots. They have zero to offer as role models. There is no good in Hitler other than the bullet in his brain. Even then his suicide wasn’t an act that showed a final flourish of good character. It was the act of a rat who wanted to rule the world but whose opponents caught him in a trap he couldn’t escape. Hitler’s suicide was an act of rampant egotism. It was the action of a man who couldn’t bear to live in a world where he wasn’t absolute ruler.
What were Hitler’s alleged good qualities? Animal lover? The wanker gave cyanide to his own dog to murder it.
What were the Nazis good qualities? Organisation? The wankers lost the fucking war. And they had a head start. That’s pretty hapless to me.
They were a bunch of chancer, murderous, bullying thugs - and thank fuck they got pounded down.
But still you get wankers, morons and imbeciles like Kanye who claim they see some instructive qualities we can admire in these criminals.
I have questions.
I’m pretty sure that if these apparent qualities are really the thing Kanye and others value and want to see more of in the world - I’m pretty sure they could have a quick look around and find someone else to illustrate those noble qualities - someone who doesn’t carry the baggage of being a lunatic who set up concentration camps to exterminate people…
Otherwise it seems a little bit like you’re just into Nazis?
Which of course Kanye and likeminded morons are. They want to launder Hitler. They want us to ponder whether we’ve been too harsh and quick to judge the Nazis and their ideas. They want us to consider whether what the Nazis did and said deserves a second, more open minded look. They want us to ask conspiratorial questions about Jews. And they want us to find cause to give a thumbs up to Hitler.
Part of their bullshit is simply cheap, crass edge-lording. They get a thrill pushing peoples buttons. They enjoy the frisson of being taboo in public. I’d proffer there’s something worse also. If you’re an attention seeking loser who champions this trite notion that the Nazis had some good qualities, then in your secret heart you are simply drawn to cruelty. Something about absolute cruelty attracts you. Something about the weak being torn apart by the powerful turns on your soul. There’s no other reason why you would single out Hitler as the person you want to highlight goodness in. You’re a boot licker who’s most thrilled when it’s covered in the blood of the helpless.
Congratulations - you would have made a good Nazi.
You too will join the ranks of history’s losers.
