It should be obvious by now, the old fart was high,...

Winter on the Russian Front will do that to you. It gets worse when the Russians knock on your bunker door and all you can say is "Who is it?"

He was a vegetarian. All those beans and starchy carbohydrates will do that.

It's a totally unhealthy lifestyle.

Much more information than I needed.

Urppp!

KJE said...

My ex has accused me of being a Hitler.

Now I can tell her I am only half-Hitler.

EDH said...

Now that takes balls! Hitler's dealer was cutting his coke with baby laxative.

Interesting look into the plain human weakness that contained the super evil spiritual force that mesmerized Germans into agrreeing to murder hundreds of millions of other people to protect the bloodline of Nordics.

The Russian slavs also had to be killed so the Nordics could take the oil and mineral wealth of the Russian land. In fact the entire world needed to be protected from non-Nordics by killing its inhabitants.

The Germans who developed jets, ballistic missiles and other superior weapons should have won.

But they were slowed down by MkUltra and by the sacrifices of brave Allied Armies that bought time for the crucial race which was being done at places called Hanford , Washington, Oakridge, Tn. and Las Alamos, NM.

The evil spiritual force in Hitler had its own agenda when it helped slow the Germans in that race for the first fission device by ordering in early 1943 that a third of Germany's transport infrastructure to quit the war effort and turn to "Transporting Jews" to extermination camps.

I have just started reading Ian Kershaw's biography of Hitler. No fart stories so far. Excellent book nevertheless.

Christopher in MA said...

David - Kershaw's work is magnificent. I think you'll enjoy it very much.

You'll get to the farting soon enough; Hitler was always embarrassed by it and took a quack concoction called Dr. Koster's Anti-Gas Pills, which contained (I believe) small amounts of strychnine. Additionally, his personal physician in the 1940s, Dr. Morell, was a filthy, unwashed homeopathic crank who regularly injected Hitler with sedatives and stimulants. There are some writers who say that Morell contributed almost as much to the defeat of Nazi Germany as the Allies, because of his quackery.

Except for the coke, it's nothing we didn't know before.

Al had all kinds of intestinal problems besides being a vegan, and Morell was creative in his treatment, to say the least.

"Pull my finger" was always a favorite gag in the bunker. I hear the place wasn't that well ventilated, and H couldn't smell anything anyway because of getting gassed in WWI, so it was a big win for him.

David said...

Christopher, I'm just through a few chapters of the first volume. Started it last night. I thought the introduction, where he discusses the various "explanations" of Hitler and the limitations and dangers of exploring the larger topic of why he flourished, was brilliant. He writes with beautiful clarity too.

David said...

Dangers of examining through biography why Hitler flourished, I should have said.

There's surely been a good deal of evidence that Hitler's personal physician (Theodor Morell) gave hitler injections of amphetamine when he felt he needed a boost- especially toward the end, when news (from Hitler's perspective) was almost always bad.

Which perhaps would explain Hitler's moodiness- full of confidence in the face of military failures sometimes, but full of doom-and-gloom later (as he crashed from his amphetamine high?).

Although in the end, neither drugs nor anything else can really explain what made Hitler, Hitler.

wpw said...

He really was a stinker!

damikesc said...

Except for the coke, it's nothing we didn't know before.

We knew he took a lot of drugs towards the end and was frequently mentally not there --- so while we didn't know it was coke specifically, I am not shocked by it at all.

ndspinelli said...

The coke explains the animated speeches. Too bad he didn't just blow weed. We could have avoided a huge war and Holocaust.

When discussing the relative strength of the United States and whether it's important to keep it, remember what damage a single weak man in one country can do under a weak system.

Our Constitution is not to be played with. It's one of only a very few reasons why this nation is exceptional and that it alone should be trusted with such superpower status. One short fragile document constantly under attack from us for petty reasons that are simply not important enough to endanger it's safeguards that the world now relies on.

Free speech!
Free speech for everyone!
Free speech forever!

Hitler finding out his coke was being cut is perfect for a Hitler Parody.

Chip Ahoy said...

I have a Hitler Whoopee cushion in its original box if any collector is interested.

Original Mike said...

Given the pictures of the piles of his victims in the death camps, that radiograph of his skull really creeps me out.

ndspinelli said...

Imagine what that fucking bunker smelled like!!

Ahh, but my interest in quackery, and it's effects on our nation, is merely a sick, debilitating obsession with no relevance to anything because (as Ann pointed out) "most people don't think" about it, right? Sure.

I say your comment is even more evidence that quackery is an Achilles Heel, of epic proportions, if only because a modern population who can't spot it are bound to fail by unskeptically indulging in nonsense elsewhere,...

I don't think any leader of the 20th century has been more thoroughly discredited than Hitler, and we keep discovering new levels of evil. I have no problem with this, but making Hitler the very modern model of a modern tyrant obfuscates the issue or tyranny. Charman Mao was quite as crazy as Hitler and created a far larger heap of bodies. He is still honored in his native land, and there are honored people in this country who were supportive of him. No one ever considers Mao and his crimes as the full flowering of Marxism in the way they look at Hitler as the fulfillment of western racism...... Charles Taylor, within the orbit of his power, seems easily the match of Hitler for pure evil. He's been convicted, but his crimes will not be analyzed as rooted in third world nationalsm. He'll serve a term in a comfortable jail, and then live out his days in restful oblivion....That's Hitler's final legacy. He's the bad smell in the kitchen that covers the smoldering fire in the mattress.

"smoldering fire in the mattress. "

That was my porn name back in the day.

I agree it's a totally unhealthy lifestyle, particularly for children, but as I have read somewhere, Hitler had been afflicted with copious and smelly farts since at least his days on the Western Front in WWI. He adopted a vegetarian diet hoping to gain some relief.

Big Mike said...

Maybe Hitler's flatulence is what gave Willi Messerschmitt the idea for the 262 jet fighter?

I'd love to see that parody, all that shouting along with all the farting. It's masterful!
