If you consider describing the Jewish people as a “plague” clever, then I suppose so. This film is an important part of history to show people how the Nazi propaganda machine operated. But “clever” is not an adjective I would use in this case. Effective, yes. Clever, no. Clever carries a positive connotation. There is nothing positive about this film.

DarronS I thought it was pretty shallow thinking of Affluenza too, but I wasn’t going to say anything until anyone else had mentioned it.

Because I trust the opinion of both of you, I will not bother to upset myself by watching the video.

What are you talking about?

The video doesn’t describe jewish people as a plague…nor is there any nazi propaganda…it’s religious propaganda as far as I can see…

But it was clever…

I don’t think we are talking about the same video…this is what machina put up…

I think people are responding to different things here. When I click on machina’s link I do not get the same thing (in fact I get nothing but a commercial for Thor) as when I click on the link Affluenza presents (which seems to be appropriately named reverse)

From what *I* saw, the video is indeed clever in its reverse through dual thoughts.

The video I saw as a Nazi propaganda video with English subtitles. Now when I click the link I’m taken to a YouTube page with suggestions for me to watch.

Something strange is going on here.

Edit: This is the video I saw when I clicked the link yesterday.

You seriously thought I said that video was “clever”?

I’m eccentric and stuff but not even my mind can get warped that it bends to call nazi propaganda clever…

The dangers of linking a search results page.
I was pretty confused too.
I’d never linked to that nazi stuff, though did listen to a few minutes worth of the narrator’s spiel.
Pathetic what people get fed…

But worse still is watching it happen all around us today with the corporate media attacks in their war on science.

How In Hades did these two videos get mixed together? I’ve never seen this happen before. Strange. The first was clever and took some careful thought. Impressive and thought provoking. I wonder if it would work with say Joshua, Judges or 2nd Timothy? Could the listener be convinced to say sack a city and kill every one and everything in it? This would be living god’s plan for us. Perhaps we could reverse the passage where Jesus tell us how to beat our slaves and actually release them? The possibilities are endless. And BTW, the film “the eternal Jew” is one of the most notorious nazi propaganda films of the 30’s. It’s eugenics gone mad.
