‘Pro-Hitler Hashtag Briefly Trends on Twitter’

July 13th, 2014 - 4:54 pm

“Activists on both sides of the the heightening Israeli-Palestinian crisis have taken to social media this week to advocate their views, though a particularly incendiary hashtag is now raising some eyebrows,” the Boston Globe reports:

The hashtag #HitlerWasRight was briefly trending on Twitter Saturday evening, and while that may be attributable to the high number of users expressing their revulsion about the topic, others in the thread expressed genuine admiration for Hitler and the Nazi Holocaust.

According to the Twitter analytics website Hashtags.org, the topic was at its peak around 5 p.m.

We collected some of the messages below. Be warned—some of the tweets contain disturbing language or images:

Yes, identifying with the Nazis will tend to do that — and note that as Jeffrey Herf of the University of Maryland wrote in his 2010 book Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World, Middle Eastern Arabs got in at that ground floor of that equation.

And speaking of Twitter, yet another reminder to be this guy:

Found via Yair Rosenberg of Tablet magazine, who tweets, “RIP Humanity.”

In addition to the Boston Globe’s archive, Twitchy has also rounded up another of the pro-Hitler tweets, including those later deleted by their authors as a reminder of their vilest impulses.

In the Twitchy article, it mentions the hashtag "HitlerDidNothingWrong" - that is a popular troll meme used by 4chan and other Internet boards frequented by those wishing to cause mayhem. My guess is they might have started it with one of their fake Twitter accounts but it managed to flush out a lot of anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli sentiment.

The Evil genie is out of the Bottle. It all began in 1967 when the Israeli Forces reclaimed all of Jerusalem but in a moment of weakness and misguided secular-Jewish largesse decided to allow the Muslim's Al Aksa Mosque to remain undisturbed on Temple Mount. Temple Mount is a Spiritual Vortex, given to the Jewish Nation to safeguard by the Holy ONE, the Omnipotent Force of all Forces in the Universe, with strict instructions as to what is allowed and forbidden on this most Awesome and powerful Spiritual Powerplant on planet earth.
The Jewish People have no Spiritual claim to the Holy Land when they do not fulfill their 'part of the bargain', that is, their G-d given responsibility under the Covenant to serve as
Custodians of the Mount. In effect, fulfilling that singular responsibility, more than any historical claims or 'legal' titles of ownership is what gives legitimacy to the Jewish possession of Jerusalem and the Holy Land.
On a deep and subconscious spiritual level this truth is felt if not understood not only by the European Union and United Nations but particularly by our half brothers in the Muslim world who have rightfully concluded the weakness and spiritual faithlessness of the Jewish Nation in spurning G-d's Will. Their fraudulent possession of Temple Mount and the Israeli Government's complicity in reinforcing of this fraud by officially forbidding any Jewish prayer or even for Jews to set foot there has caused a world-shattering metaphysical imbalance, a short-circuit so to speak.
Since 1967 the cancer of Radical Islam has metastasized world-wide, threatening every civilization with physical and spiritual destruction. The 9-11 attacks, Violent terror attacks on non-Muslims, Islamic unrest and Sharia in Europe, everywhere Islam has a presence, the dread and unspeakable menace of two nuclear armed Islamic States, Pakistan and soon Iran, just to name a very few nightmares.
Is all this a coincidence? Is it a coincidence that all three major religions hold Jerusalem as sacred ground to be fought and died for? A coincidence that Jerusalem is never mentioned in Islam's holiest book, Koran, yet thousands of times in Jewish Scripture!
The truth is that nothing can stop this Cancer from spreading. Not Armed forces, Drone assassinations, Civil laws or security checkpoints. Not even the false panacea of a 'successful' political settlement with Arab Palestinians in Judea/Samaria for 'Palestinian' Statehood there will turn the tide and return the 'Genie' to the 'bottle'. Those are nothing but band-aids on soon-to-be terminal cancer. And more and more as the nations of the world, including formerly friendly ones in European Capitols and Washington D.C. Quietly have begun to openly question the merits, even the 'legitimacy' of the Jewish State, the situation facing Israel has become dire. Far worse than Iranian nukes is this other threat. Sadly, more and more American Jews have come to question Israeli status in that region. The BDS movement grows on American University campuses, most troubling as it now includes growing numbers of young liberal Jewish students, men and women.
Militarily, politically, philosophically, morally ...Israel is becoming weakened on many fronts. It is not certain the Jewish State can survive much longer under the expanded and multifaceted front.
Unless...The Jewish Nation will do what should have been done in 1967. Remove the Al Aksa from Temple Mount. We need not destroy it, for we Jews do not destroy. We are not a vindictive people even towards our enemies. This golden-domed edifice can be disassembled brick by brick, placed on flat bed trucks, hauled overland and presented as a gift to the Hashemite King as a goodwill gesture.
We must Restore balance to the spiritual vortex of this Awesome Temple Mount as was intended by the Holy ONE. There Is No Other Way. Yes, it will be painful. The region and world will bleed with Muslim fury and world-violence. For a while. And then, the cancer will die as the Genie of Spiritual imbalance is returned to the Bottle. There Is No Other Way. And Time Is Running Out.
