LAUGHING MY ASS OFF!!!!!!!!!!!
And you’re just sitting there hoping she doesn’t call on you
Hitler flirting with Eva Braun.
I don’t know how this makes me feel
It makes me feel very uncomfortable
You know what’s so uncomfortable about this? It shows that perhaps one of the most evil men in history, was a human being. That, on occasion, he could be nice, even flirty. That’s not all. You want to see evil people as evil, screaming horrible stuff over a desk with 20 microphones with 20, 000 people saluting them. The evil is clear and recognizable then. This shows a completely different image, it scares you because that means that evil isn’t a stereotype, that evil is not recognizable, that evil could be anyone. It scares you because this shows that could be lurking inside anyone and you’ll never ever know. Maybe in you?
i reblogged this literally like 2 minutes ago, but i want this version because of that comment ^
Its so true you feel ashamed for admitting(even when its only silently for yourself) that he was IN THIS MOMENT a nice old man making a nice joke. After writing this comment my first thought was:” Hopefully there will be no stupid brat, ripping my words out of context and saying ‘You are German and said Hitler was a nice guy!! BUHU~~’ “
It’s so easy to distance ourselves from evil. So comforting. Hitler was evil. Hitler was less than human. Hitler is nothing like me.
But the truth resists simplicity.
Hitler was human AND he was evil. Hitler was, in many respects, very much like you and me, and he was still evil.
Evil in not some genetic mutation that alters us down to the genes.
Evil is little choices, opinions, actions, all coming together. Evil, like good, is made of the things that make us human.
And that’s hard, and that’s scary, and it underlines how important it is to remember that.
I dunno, maybe that’s a little deep to put on a gif of Hitler flirting, but…there you go.
