This is how it starts. First you get the children, then you get the Christmas then you get the power.
SOS-Kinderdorf, a German children’s charity, sent out 50,000 Christmas CDs to households all over the country. Imagine the dismay or delight when the families discovered that they received a mix of Hitler Youth jams instead of traditional Christmas carols.
Spokesman Roger Damm claimed the charity’s computers had been hacked by a far-right group. Yeah and my twitter account got hacked by the Black Israelites. Actually that’s a terrible example. The only thing they know how to hack is a racist shouting match in front of a subway entrance on Essex and Delancey.
The charity and producer filed a complaint for “incitement to hatred. I can only assume it’s against themselves. I blame Krampus*. Never change, Germany.
Frohe Weihnachten, mein Fuhrer!
*I had to go with Bourdain since YouTube has something against Taco. Either one is a win.

What is it with racing bosses and their obsession with Nazis? FIA head Max Mosley was videotaped in a Nazi themed orgy with five hookers last year. He was seen “giving orders in German as he [lashed] girls wearing mock death camp uniforms and [was] himself whipped until he bleeds”. Oh his dad happened to be Oswald Mosley, a fascist who was down with Adolf Hitler.
Enter F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone. Bernie, who’s good friends with Mosley, goosestepped in it when he praised Hitler as a leader who “got things done”. He also claimed that the dictator was “persuaded to do things that I have no idea whether he wanted to or not”.
Ecclestone’s comments didn’t go over too well as one might imagine. When informed that the World Jewish Congress didn’t appreciate the Nazi love and wants him to resign, he manned up and doubled down.
‘It’s a pity [the World Jewish Congress] didn’t sort the banks out,’ he said. ‘ When asked to elaborate he countered: ‘ They have a lot of influence everywhere.’
Ist sie nicht wunderbar, Bernie. He finally issued an apology three days after his interview with the Times of London. Make of it what you will.
He insisted ‘things were taken a little bit wrong’ and his praise of the German tyrant was ‘not what he meant’ before adding: ‘Those who don’t know me think I support Hitler’s atrocities; those who do know me have told me how unwise I was to articulate my points so badly that it should have been so widely misunderstood.
‘During the 1930s Germany was facing an economic crisis but Hitler was able to rebuild the economy, building the autobahns and German industry.
‘That was all I meant when I referred to him getting things done.
‘I’m an admirer of good leadership, of politicians who stand by their convictions and tell the voters the truth.
The billionaire went on to praise Hitler again for turning a bankrupt country into a strong one and showing what someone can do if they “have the power and don’t have to keep back and referring every five minutes”. Bernie says compromise is for bitches. He then went on to say his boy Max Mosley would do a “super job” as prime minister. Yeesh. Who knew the Fourth Reich would start in auto racing?

It looks like the Mets are starting to adopt the Gestapo tactics favored by Yankees security.
“My time with Mr. Miller was cut short by a security guard, who called other security guards who surrounded me and took my Mets press pass away for speaking to people in the stands, which they said was a no-no. They walked me to an exit and told me to wait while they called the Mets’ public relations office. They came back and told me the spokesman said that interviews with fans or employees were off limits.”
Via Fark by way of The New York Times.
Update: How could I leave a post about the Mets without saying anything about Sunday?
See you in Port St. Lucie next February!

Bleeding from the ass? That’s a scandal. He should have stopped at 14 “beatings from the cane“.

“If it wasn’t for us, you’d all be speaking German! Singing ‘Deutschland, Deutschland über alles…’”
The Swiss have always claimed to be neutral in international affairs and banking. They try to assuage our suspicions by inundating us with images of that slutty, foul temptress Swiss Miss. However they’ve finally overplayed their hand.
They may have gone a bit far in showing their loyalty by bringing back the good old days of the Third Reich. A Swiss television station ran the subtitles to the Nazi Germany anthem while playing the current German anthem before Germany played Austria in the Euro.
“It is an inexcusable error,” said an employee in charge of the subtitling service for the satation, SRG, though he added it was the fault of two young editors.
Perhaps they were just following orders, Herr Employee.
