[explaining why Harry Potter denigrates people who do not use black magic]

"Uncle Vernon made another funny noise, like a mouse being trodden on." [p. 47] Remember Adolf Hitler, the most famous Black Magick wizard in modern history? He depicted Jews as Rats in his Propaganda Machinery, convincing the Germans they should extermination the "vermin".

I don't remember Hitler using black magic. Just evil technology.

Mister Spak

". . . I am convinced that I am acting as the agent of our Creator. By fighting off the Jews, I am doing the Lord's work."

- Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

"My feeling as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God's truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was his fight against the Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed his blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice. And as a man I have the duty to see to it that human society does not suffer the same catastrophic collapse as did the civilization of the ancient world some two thousand years ago — a civilization which was driven to its ruin through this same Jewish people."

-Hitler, April 12, 1922 from a speech at Munich.

Worst. Godwin. Ever.

Better than you are

Well, you actually read the first 47 pages, which is more than most HP bashers will do; I'll give you that.

Thinking about how some people take it so seriously almost ruined the Harry Potter series for me.

Allegory for Jesus

WTF does this guy think he is proving by tacking random symbolism on things? Hitler is not traditionally associated with black magic, no matter what this guy wants to say, and, despite Hitler associating Jews with rats in his propaganda, the association of ANYONE with rats is also a common literary comparison to suggest that the character compared to the rat is conniving and (morally) dirty. Which, unfortunately, is an entirely different connotation than the one given by the word "mouse", which is more associated with being meek, mildly disgusting to cute depending upon your own perspective, and annoying.

Sigh...the critical reading gods frown upon on this day.

Someone played a bit too much Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

7/1/2008 1:17:30 PM


I'm seriously trying to imagine Hitler in some kind of magic getup. No matter how hard I try, it's all just too bizarre.

Grasping at straws are we?

"Harry Potter and the untermenschen."

There is truly no depth to their dishonesty.

7/1/2008 1:38:07 PM


Ooooh, you homeskooled people. Is there any occurrence that you cannot connect to Hitler?

Remember Adolf Hitler, the most famous Black Magick wizard in modern history?

What are you on? Whatever it is, we need to cut the dosage, pronto

7/1/2008 1:44:02 PM


Wait, I thought Hilter was an evolutionary prophet!

7/1/2008 1:54:42 PM


That is like, so deep, oh my god, like, the way you've, like, totally gotten inside Rowling's head like that, so, like, is she, like, a hilterite too? Like, Whoaaaa, you're totally blowing by mind, dude.
And Happy Canada Day everyone!!!

7/1/2008 2:06:01 PM



That explains NOTHING.

Not a single godamn thing.

7/1/2008 2:08:25 PM


Thats the biggest, most desperate stretch since "videogames caused the D.C. sniper attacks because the sniper said 'I am God' and some games have a 'God mode.'"

Now THAT'S what I call reaching.

"Remember Adolf Hitler, the most famous Black Magick wizard in modern history?"

That would be Crowley, not Hitler. Hitler was a Christian.

"He depicted Jews as Rats in his Propaganda Machinery, convincing the Germans they should extermination the "vermin"."
