THIS IS WHY TUMBLR GET ME SO FRICKIN MAD. YOU CAN SPEND AN HOUR WORKING ON A COMPLICATED PHOTOSET, OR MAKE A REALLY CLEVER FUNNY JOKE AND YOU GET 8 NOTES. IF YOU’RE LUCKY. BUT DOES A SPINNING BLUE POPSICLE GET NOTES???? OF COURSE IT DOES. NOBODY QUESTIONS THE SPINNING BLUE POPSICLE.
THIS WEBSITE IS SO MESSED UP I SWEAR.

Come for the popsicle, stay for the entitlement.
You’re on a bus sitting next to someone who takes out a pack of gum and chews a piece. He’s minding his own business and probably didn’t initially intend to share, but he sees you staring and offers you a piece as well. It’s spearmint. You’re like, mmm, yeah that’s pretty…
Hold on just a tick. Listen, I’m Jewish, so I’m perfectly capable of understanding that what he did was just…..well, there are no words for it. But let’s not round it up to simply Jews that got killed. It was six million people that died in those camps, not just Jews. Did you know that homosexuals were sent there, too? Yeah, I’m sure you did. They had to wear special little symbols on their clothes. Do you know what it was? It was a pink triangle.
It was six million PEOPLE.
But you let that roll over in your mind for a while and you are going to forever see this man as a monster, but that’s not what he was. He was someone who thought he was truly doing something right for his nation, no matter how shitty he was doing it. Believe me when I say that I don’t like him. I really don’t. My grandfather’s brothers died in those camps, and my grandfather escaped to Spain, then to Mexico. He was lucky.
This is not a monster holding hands with a little girl.
This is Adolf Hitler, a man, holding hands with a little girl.
Yeah. It’s fucking scary. It really is. Do you know why?
It’s because you’re seeing that he wasn’t, in fact, a monster. You’re seeing in this picture that he was a man. He was a man, and that’s really the saddest part of it all.
As a History major who specializes in the history of early modern Europe, I’ve studied a lot of dictators in detail, not just Hitler. The number one mistake anyone could ever make in history is making the assumption that only inhuman monsters are capable of doing terrible things.
Stop dehumanizing Hitler just so you can reassure yourself that “normal” humans aren’t capable of doing bad things. Hitler liked children and dogs, he was a vegetarian and he cried like a little boy when his mother died. I’m not saying he was a good, innocent person, but when you stop attributing human characteristics to historical figures like Hitler, it’s how you overlook people just like him in real life, and it’s how people like him end up back in power.
That last statement.
First off, if you’re a bit squeamish, don’t watch this movie. Seriously.
Secondly, holy shit was it a great movie. I had been meaning to see it ever since I’d heard about it in passing on one of the Two Best Friends videos, but jeeze I wish I had watched it sooner.
The rest of my thoughts are going to be under the cut, so if you wish to read them, please do so there.
