• Facepalming at the Nazis
    120 replies, posted
I facepalm when ever I think of how the great Nazi war machine was defeated. I know some Nazis where evil and the genocide they caused was horrible. But the German people's ability to create a near unstoppable war machine was just awesome. Some times I wish I could just go back in time, kill Hitler, and take over. I would then use my common sense (Hitler was crazy and delusional) to guide the Nazi war machine to success. Does anyone feel the same? Do you ever get the urge to fix the mistakes the Nazis made which lead to their defeat? All that being said, do you think a fourth Reich starting in Argentina would be a good concept story for a video game? The game would be set in the fifties and sixties so you would get some newer weapons instead of the old, crappy, and tiring WW II weapons. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] General Noobus Hitler's intentions for his country were good, but the way he went about achieving them was just wrong. Still, you have to admire the way he took Germany out of the dirt and transformed it into a formidable force in such a short time. [/quote] That's exactly how I feel. I just disagree with their genocide and racism.
You are so cool.
Basically you are saying you would glady commit genocide

Hitler was a smart man, just insane in most places...
Hitler got rejected from an art school twice.
I met a man who said that Hitler was awesome, that his one mistake was getting into war with America. I then facepalmed.
[QUOTE=Domamin;22741682]Hitler got rejected from an art school twice.[/QUOTE] That takes some serious skill. Or lack thereof.
Hitler was a smart man deluded by dumb ideals. I think if Germany had a better leader during that period then the Nazis would still remain a powerful military force. I don't approve of the genocide but a smart leader could use the army in a better way.
what a quality thread
[QUOTE=Lonestriper;22741665]Basically you are saying you would glady commit genocide[/QUOTE] No, I just want command of the German military forces. I would avoid pissing off the United States and the Russian winter among other military blunders. I wouldn't support the genocide at all though. At least treat the jews more humanely so the Nazis don't look evil in the eyes of the world.
Goddammit so many dumb posts.

Hitler was already playing dice when he annexed Austria, and much more so when he invaded Czechoslovakia.
Hitler was borderline retarded, having been rejected from art school twice and winning the victories he got simply because he was either kicking someone who was already on the ground or stupidly lucky. As evidenced by his brilliant strategic ideas, like trying to attack the Soviet Union in the midst of a particularly brutal Russian winter.
[QUOTE=Domamin;22741682]Hitler got rejected from an art school twice.[/QUOTE] His works were actually amazing. I would of thought he would of got accepted.
You cannot be the leader of a country unified against others by their hate, anger and displease, controlling a war machine created for the purpose of gaining Lebensraum, while being a good person.
His Ideals were stupid, but other than that Hitler was a pretty good leader in my opinion.
[QUOTE=ashxu;22741927]His works were actually amazing.

It lacks refinement and originality. VS. Otto Dix (Same time period as Hitler) [img]http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_0NB3zPRcD7E/SwMBKSiPESI/AAAAAAAABIM/3zUCu7KUdpQ/s1600/1913_self+portrait.jpg[/img] In short, Hitler was an alright artist, however compared to many of his competitors for entrance in Vienna he fell noticeably short.
If he redid his priorities, taking over one country at a time and waiting to kill people once he completely took over europe. He probably would have been successful.
[QUOTE=ashxu;22742008]His Ideals were stupid, but other than that Hitler was a pretty good leader in my opinion.[/QUOTE] I don't speak German so I can't compare his speeches to anyone else's adequately, but your "other than that" certainly doesn't apply to his figure. He doesn't have the form of a leader.

[QUOTE=ashxu;22741927]His works were actually amazing. I would of thought he would of got accepted.[/QUOTE] I believe it had to do with an inability to draw faces well.
[QUOTE=ashxu;22741927]His works were actually amazing. I would of thought he would of got accepted.[/QUOTE] They're okay, but they're rather lacking in comparison to most artists of the day. They're good reproductions of (most) of his subjects, but they're rather bland. It's like the pictures they sell at stores like Ross: they're OK paintings, but it's not like you'd see them in an art museum or something.
Hitler sucks. Stop trying to be the cool cat amongst your 12 year old friends in Tennessee.

The Soviets would have steamrolled Germany either way.
[QUOTE=Sporkfire;22742118]The Soviets would have steamrolled Germany either way.[/QUOTE] I dont think so, compare the casualities of the soviets to the nazis, The soviets were completely unorganized in the beginning and the winter was the only thing that saved them.
[QUOTE=Siminov;22742153]I dont think so, compare the casualities of the soviets to the nazis, The soviets were completely unorganized in the beginning and the winter was the only thing that saved them.[/QUOTE] true, but they had sheer numbers and like you said they were initially unorganized but over time they pretty much frightened everyone including their "allies".
