    :rofl: - don't worry I hate that POS 'publication'.
    Also did you know Metro is made by DM publications? I was so sad when I found that out.

    That is sad! Though to be honest I have learned to appreciate the artistic merits of the daily mail :yep:

    It's only the start of the battle. Wait till Goering comes in - then the splashing really starts. That boy needed a big bath.


    When I first read the Pink Swastika all of the names I'd heard so innocently in history class made sense. The knight of the long knives anyone?

    Well, bits of that I thought were quite good, he was good as the ranting orator, the problem was more in the looks department.

    Well I don't personally look as far as the artsy sections of the DM as I am so appalled at what is on the main part of the site I will have to take your word for it.

    Yes bits were good - such as the Putsch scene but yes, his looks were seriously off, there were so many noticeable inaccuracies plus the plot was a bit crap in parts too.

    This thread isn't about the Nazis, but I thought I would bring him in right at the start and therefore avoid the usual late collapse of the thread into a series of accusatory "you're a Nazi" statements.

    Godwin's Law has hereby been avoided. We are now free to discuss anything without fear of it being invoked.
    You're a Stalinist.

    Strangely, the Nazi guide to the UK for children didn't mention the Daily Mail (well, according to the Daily Mail anyway), which is odd, given how much the Mail supported Hitler before, er, 1939.

    Hitler was one of the greatest leaders in the 20th century in terms of restoring the economy and creating one of the strongest military powerhouses in Europe, and indeed the world. He fulfilled almost all of his policies, abolished child labour, increased pensions and the minimum wage, nationalised a huge proportion of the public sector and most importantly gave confidence and pride to the German people. Downsides are he was antisemitic, and his major downfall were invading Russia.

    The Mail - always leading the charge against common sense.

    To be fair, most of England did similarly before the invasion of Poland. Appeasement was all the rage back then!
