Everything Hitler is new again

Let’s get one thing clear: Hitler was an a-hole, and anyone who doesn’t think so needs to move along--there’s nothing to see here. What’s not as clear is why pop culture shout outs to der Führer are growing in number. Actually, figuring out why is beyond a pop culture devotee’s skill set, but making a list of the Top 5 Hitler hollas in pop culture isn't. Let’s just hope he doesn’t holla back.

5) Aubrey O’Day

On the Fox program Hannity and Colmes, realitrix Aubrey O’Day said of Hitler, “I don’t condone Hitler one ounce, but yes, he was a brilliant man.” She does seem to condone using the term "condone one ounce," which is problematic in its own right. 

4) Hutton Gibson, aka Mel Gibson’s Dad

Gibson, a famed Holocaust denier proclaimed the following: “They claimed that there were 6.2 million (Jews) in Poland before the war and after the war there were 200,000, therefore he (Hitler) must have killed 6 million of them. They simply got up and left. They were all over the Bronx and Brooklyn and Sydney and Los Angeles.” Ok, so that’s where he says the Jews came from, but what about all of those glum hipsters in Flight of the Conchords t-shirts eating string cheese, and pretending to finish their novellas.

3) Kirk Cameron

The Growing Pains heartthrob says that Darwin+ Hitler=Love. That’s what they said about Joanie and Chachi, and I don’t think they’re even friends on Facebook.

2) Megan Fox

The so-pretty-she’s-ugly actress talked smack about Transformers director Michael Bay, and invoked Hitler. "He wants to create...this mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is…but when...he's not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he's so...awkward.” While it's not a crime against humanity, Pearl Harbor is criminal in its own way, so maybe she's got a point. 

1) Michael Jackson

Ping-ponging between saying Hitler was a good orator, an evil genius and master manipulator, the King of Pop believed that if he had spent just an hour with der Führer, he could have convinced him to be a cuddle-bunny. Either that, or get him a new pair of lenses from Lenscrafters.
