“Springtime for Hitler . . . . . . . . . and Old D.C.”
How Hitler lost the War, but Conquered the Modern World!
By Richard Allen – August 22, 2022
The “Producers” is a funny and satirical film in which the Entertainment Industry actually makes fun of itself. The plot of this movie, written by comedic genius Mel Brooks, is funny enough that they’ve made the movie twice. First filmed in in 1967, it was remade 38 years later, in 2005, starring Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Will Ferrell and Uma Thurman in the lead roles. Unlike many attempts at remaking a classic film, the original and the remake are well made and very funny! What makes this film the subject of this week’s Blog is the irony portrayed in the movie, and how once again “Art imitates Life!” Let me start by giving you a synopsis of the plot behind “The Producers” 2005 film and how it pokes fun at both Hitler and his attempt to make his National Socialist German Workers' Party (the actual meaning of Nazi) into a “Master-Race.” But the most ironic thing to me is, how our present crazy world is following Hitler’s vision to create the New World Order! Let’s start with a recap of the 2005 film version:
“New York, 1959. Max Bialystock (Nathan Lane) was once the king of Broadway, but now all his shows close on opening night. Things turn around when he's visited by the neurotic accountant Leo Bloom (Matthew Broderick), who proposes a scheme tailor-made for producers who can only make flops: Raise far more money than you need, then make sure the show is despised. No one will be interested in it, so you can pocket the surplus. To this end, they produce a musical called Springtime for Hitler written by escaped Nazi Franz Liebken.” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0395251/plotsummary
Without getting too far into the weeds, Max and Leo have a “can’t miss flop” in the making: They pick the worst script, the worst director, a flamboyant and effeminate actor to play Adolf Hitler, the play discusses distasteful subject matter, and they raise a boat-load of money by illegally overselling percentages of the play to multiple investors. What could possibly go wrong, or rather what could possibly go right? On opening night, the wealthy caviar and crumpets crowd from New York’s upper East Side (many Jewish) are initially appalled at Max and Leo’s tasteless play entitled: “Springtime for Hitler.” As the opening musical number springs to life amid full battle dress and armament we also see a shot from above of live dancers formed into a swastika, and hear a chorus of voices singing out: “Springtime for Hitler and Germany. Winter for Poland and France.” Many walk out. But then, the flamboyant rock ‘n roll Hitler begins singing “Heil to me, heil myself.” And the audience starts laughing, obviously feeling that they actually get the satirical humor in this cutting-edge musical. Before you know it, Max and Leo have a smash hit on their hands, which will require them to repay their multiple investors – which they can’t possibly do – sending them to jail for fraud.
The irony of this movie is, the world didn’t take Hitler, Socialism or his dream of a “Master Race” seriously in the 1930’s, only to wake up in the 1940’s with a World War, 70 million total deaths and the horrors of Nazi Death Camps. So, let me ask, what’s our excuse here in the West, and especially in America, where we supposedly value freedom and the rule of law? How can we be marching down the same road that Germany did in the 1930’s? I fear that soon we will be singing: “Springtime for Hitler and Old D.C.!” The sad reality is that Hitler lost the war, but his ideology has conquered the modern world – especially our near totalitarian government in Washington D.C.!
First, the deliberate post-war masking of Hitler’s Socialism and Statism has led our modern Socialists and Statists to somehow believe that the modern Socialism is different. It’s not! The false dichotomy of Right-Wing Fascist vs. Left Wing Communist is not based in truth, it was a diversion created by post-WWII Socialists trying to cover up the horrors of the Nazi Death Camps. Sadly, these same horrors were going on for 70 years in the Soviet Union, but Statist-sympathizers like NY Times Reporter, Walter Duranty here in America, chose to cover up Communist Socialism’s barbaric behavior. For 40 years of Cold War history, Soviet and Chinese Statists committed the same atrocities while the world stayed silent. And their success in displacing Christianity as the dominant culture and politic has brought most of Western Europe under the sway of Socialism. Eastern Europe, already crushed down by the Soviet Union, has never been enamored with Socialism – they saw it close up with its tyrannical Statism and hypocrisy.
So you’re probably wondering: “How did Adolf Hitler lose the war and yet have his Socialist Ideology conquer the modern world? Let me start by saying that WWII in many ways was fought to make the world safe for “Communist Socialism.” I wish I didn’t have to say it, but the United States worked hard and sacrificed much to defeat Hitler’s Fascist Socialism and then placed Stalin and Mao’s Communist Socialism firmly in control of the post-WWII world. From a perspective of Liberty, the differences between the Fascist and Communist versions of Socialism are more academic than real. Both demand total allegiance and worship of the State! If you wonder what is the common thread between Black Lives Matter, Antifa – a group who uses Fascist practices to show they’re against Fascism, Critical Race Theory, Lesbian Gay Bi-sexual and Transgender dogma, the promotion of 183 Genders, and abject hatred toward America and Freedom – is THAT THEY ALL ARE SOCIALIST-STATIST TO THE CORE! Whether their role is to actually teach falsehood or to destabilize the American Culture and Way of Life, their end is the same: The New World Order of Socialist States!
So here’s my list showing the following eight ways Adolf Hitler lost the war, yet his ideology has conquered our modern world. Note: This list is by no means exhaustive, there are other triumphs by Hitler’s Reich not covered here:
We live in a world where the State in both the East and West reigns supreme. Just look at their tyrannical rule during the Covid Man-Made Pandemic! “Shut up, take your experimental jab, put your mask on and stay home!”
We live in a world where Human Life is no longer valued. The gas chambers have been replaced by Abortion on Demand and Genocide-Engineered Starvation. Hitler’s ultimate dream has come true: The State determines who lives and who dies. If you are not serving the New World Order (the New Reich), there is no place where you are safe on planet earth. Now with amniocentesis, we’re very close to determining an infant’s potential “in utero,” and those who are “infirm, retarded, deformed or just the wrong gender, can be Terminated!”
We Live in a world where the Elites control us using New-Speak and Disinformation by the Estate Media. This is the legacy of Hitler and his Minister of Disinformation, Josef Goebbels. Goebbels learned well from Woodrow Wilson (another progressive Socialist) who changed word meanings to control the masses. And just like Goebbels’ promise of a “secret weapon” to the German people while they were living through a crushing defeat, our moderns can blatantly lie that we have “0% Inflation” and we are Building Back Better.
We live in a world where Worship of the Socialist State has replaced the Worship of a Transcendent God. The consequences are horrific to say the least. As Christian thinker, Malcomb Muggeridge states: “If there is no God, then all things are permissible.” While we were appalled at “Fuehrer Worship” in the 1930’s and 1940’s – today we live in a “godless world,” and our children are worshiping at various Altars: The Altar of Science and Technology, The Altar of Sex and Pleasure, and The Altar of Man’s great learning. Man having now become god!
We live in a world where Children are Manipulated and Brain-Washed into believing Socialists’ anti-family Lies. This was the world Hitler envisioned, one where the State raised children to be loyal to government and its goals. The Nazi Party’s “Hitler Youth” indoctrinated children to betray their parents if they didn’t obey edicts from the State. Our Education System in the West has become the Trojan Horse of godless atheism, with disastrous results. They now encourage children without parents’ consent to change genders, to use birth control, abortion, infanticide and worse.
We live in a world where Science has been Perverted to accomplish Evil and support Falsehoods. I only need to mention a few: Man-Made Climate Change and Gender Fluidity are accepted as hard science, and killing infants is preferred to killing any other animal. Like it did for Hitler, Science has given us more efficient ways to kill, but does absolutely nothing to restrain the evil within man’s heart. Science provides excuses to do evil.
We live in a world where Perverted Sexuality and Immoral Behavior are celebrated and Normal Behavior is Targeted for Destruction. Adolf Hitler encouraged anti-family sex – especially with SS Programs like Lebensborn that encouraged illegitimacy and child abduction. In the name of creating a “Master Race,” thousands of poor children were born out of wedlock – but only to those mothers who could prove their racial purity. We’ve come a long way from Gary Hart washing out as a presidential candidate over a tryst with a young intern. Today, those elected to the highest offices in the land use their position and power for sexual promiscuity and perversion.
We live in a world where satanic beliefs, witchcraft and occult presence is actively being sought. Eric Kurlander has documented Hitler’s obsession with the Occult and Paranormal:
“The Nazi fascination with the occult is legendary, yet today it is often dismissed as Heinrich Himmler’s personal obsession or wildly overstated for its novelty. In Hitler’s Monsters, Eric Kurlander reveals how the Third Reich’s relationship to the supernatural was far from straightforward. Below, he recounts Hitler’s occult beginnings, and how they infiltrated into the propaganda and politics of the Nazi Party.” https://yalebooksblog.co.uk/2017/06/30/hitler-obsession-occult-kurlander/
No doubt more could be said, but our present governments in the West are obsessed with Satanic rituals, mutilations, child abduction and evil. For an age that has been taught that there is “No God,” they certainly believe in the devil and are captivated by his so-called charms.
Let me close by observing there was a time, post World War II, that the world was shocked by Hitler’s Reich and the evil deeds that were perpetrated, not only on the rest of the world, but also on the German people. We now live in an age where virtually every false ideology the Third Reich propagated, is an accepted belief in most of the civilized world. I fear we’ve been far too hard on the WWII generation of German citizens and far too apologetic to our present generation of citizens in Western societies. World Socialism is still making conquests, seeking to bring in the Final Reich, The New World Order. My prayer is that God would bring revival to our once-great lands, that is, to cause men and women to come to faith in Jesus Christ, and to seek the Lord while He may be found. The day will come when the Lord will “cast all that offends into outer darkness, and bring in a New Heaven and a New Earth wherein dwells righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13). And all the upper East Side New York hypocrites who laughed at Hitler or made the Third Reich the ultimate boogeyman, will give an account before a Holy God for the very same sins!
