The British National Party and the Fuhrerbunker

Last week I wrote a post about how the racist British National Party was in a state of Gotterdamerung after its entire membership list was leaked.

And everyone was shocked to see that BNP members are EVERYWHERE.

Which is making a lot of these xenophobes extremely nervous and upset. The BNP leader Nick Griffin, a plummy Cambridge graduate, had promised them they would be acclaimed as true British patriots.

But now people are calling them Nazis.

And nobody is more worried AND angry.

Than the Fuhrer himself...

OK OK it's been DONE. Right?

But don't blame me it's a cultural phenomenom.

The only previous film to provoke such an avalanche of parodists is Brokeback Mountain, but there the subject matter remained strictly local to American culture. With Downfall, the phenomenon of the mash-up, as this subgenre is known, has gone global.

Amazing isn't it?

Although not as amazing ......and disgusting the fact that sixty years after the Second World War.

The New Nazis are everywhere in Britain...

Hitler gets Banned is still one of the best.

Remind me again: WHAT did the Brits go to war against (and drag Canada in with them for), 70 years ago?

Oh, my mistake. Of course, it wasn't fascism; they were fine with that, as the Spanish Civil War proved in advance. It was someone else's imperialism, right at a time when their own empire was in decline. Empire for me, not for thee--that's British fair play for ya.

Hi Woozie...I was just amazed to find out how many there are. And don't you love the bit that the only ones who can't join in are the Germans because they understand what's been said. That'll teach to start two wars eh? :)

Hi Bina...the leader of the BNP reminds me of Oswald Mosley the leader of the British fascist during the lead-up to the Second World War. People forget how many upper class twits were ready to play footsie with Hitler...
