In the nick of time… DM (neo-)Nazi Story of the Week

In the nick of time... DM (neo-)Nazi Story of the Week

With the ongoing election campaign and subsequent drama with our hung parliament and the resulting political brouhaha, one might have thought that the entire Nazi Story of the Week newsdesk at Daily Mail Towers might have been relocated to a certain Mr Clegg’s back garden. Not the case, it seems – for just in time we get our weekly dose of the N-stuff. Read the rest of this entry »

DM Nazi (Non-)Story of the Week...

Wait for it, wait for it… Just as I was beginning to think that the folks at the Daily Mail might have temporarily relocated their permanent Nazi story staff to the ongoing General Election campaign, we get an end-of-the-week Hitler treatRead the rest of this entry »

Two more DM Nazi Stories of the Week…

Two more DM Nazi Stories of the Week...

It’s getting just a little bit silly now, but with the Daily Mail’s rather crazy obsession with Adolf Hitler and the Nazis my jokey plan to write a book on the subject is becoming more of a reality. There have been two new stories since my last submission; it would appear that they are churning them out far faster than I can write reviews. Read the rest of this entry »

DM Nazi Story of the Week: 15.04.2010

It took the best part of a week to arrive, but our weekly dose of Adolf Hitler from the Daily Mail is here. Another non-story, and another opportunity to shoehorn in an image of Der Führer taken from the Mail’s special reports archive. Read the rest of this entry »

Shoehorning Hitler

Shoehorning Hitler

Not so much a Daily Mail Nazi Story of the Week, but a silly and utterly pointless little article that provides the editors at my favourite online tabloid with what is probably the most ridiculous excuse yet to shoehorn in a photograph of Adolf Hitler – or should I say Adolphe Hitler, the Führer’s rather foppish French fashion guru doppelgänger.

DM Nazi Story of the Week… Part… Hmm, I’ve lost count.

DM Nazi Story of the Week... Part... Hmm, I've lost count.

Shock, horror! A new Nazi row reported by the Daily Mail

It would appear that Russia has suddenly decided that the problem of racist gangs on its streets is something that needs to be solved – ah, there’s nothing like an exercise in saving face and attempting to provide evidence that Russia can truly fulfil its long-term ambition of joining the European Union. Following the rightfully harsh sentences meted out to various knuckle-dragging numbskulls, the authorities have now started to go after what they see as the ideological backbone to this phenomenon.

DM Nazi Story of the We... Day

If the boot was on the other foot…

If the boot was on the other foot...

This country would be accused of raging “anti-Semitism”.

Israeli MPs call for boycott of British goods.

Come to think of it, by dredging up the Nazis when discussing the British Government’s (rare) common sense decision to distinguish between Israeli goods and produce from the West Bank, they already have. Even Prime Minister’s Gordon Brown’s grovelling apology to the Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni over a court’s decision to issue a warrant for her arrest as a war criminal hasn’t placated them.

Meanwhile, a bunch of religious cranks in Israel itself have embarked on a campaign against Christmas trees; they are not kosher, apparently. One can only wonder what would happen if any Western European country tried to do something similar: cue wild and frothy-mouthed accusations of “anti-Semitism” and the invokation of the media-fed ghosts of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. These fellows can do what they like and have everybody else bend over backwards, but as soon as there is some sort of movement in the other direction all we hear about is the moustachioed one and visions of brownshirted goons beating up fellows in caftans with funny sidelocks in the street. Or something just as lurid.

To cap it all off, the past few days have also seen the mysterious removal of the infamous “Arbeit macht Frei” sign above the gate at Auschwitz I by a bunch of expert thieves – or insidious neo-Nazis, if that is your chosen angle. The fact that Poland has apparently declared a state of emergency just how insane all of this is – of course, anything less and they would lose whatever good faith they might have earned with the bellicose Israelis.

You genuinely have to wonder though – are the Polish authorities expecting the Nazis to march on Warsaw or gangs of marauding goons to sack their local synagogues? Random police checks? Are they going to stop every close-shaven individual and ask them to empty their pockets in the hope of discovering a piece of the Auschwitz sign?

Border patrol police were told to be on the lookout for the 5m-long heavy cast-iron plaque that had spanned the entrance gate, over fears that there might have been plans to take it out of the country.

Hmm. I have heard rumours that a 5m cast-iron sign was last seen sneaking along a forest path south of Chorzów, accompanied by a rather shifty-looking elderly gentleman who according to intrigued eye-witnesses bore more than just a passing resemblance to a certain Josef Mengele. Well, at least they can’t pin this one on John Demjanjuk.

Oy vey.
