Hitler vs Vader 2. Epic Rap Battles of History Season 2.

anonymous asked:

My friend was laughing about the Hitler vs Vader Epic Rap Battle of History the other day. Particularly about the oven and shower comments. I called him out for it and asked how he could think that was ever possibly funny. He was silent after that. Why do people think that crap is funny? There are plenty of things you can joke about. The holocaust. Hitler. Those things are not a joke.

Darth Vader isn’t real.

Culturally speaking, Jews like to make fun of Nazis because it’s cathartic. Because we’re still here and they’re gone. But even in Jewish created works that are particularly harsh on Nazis like in Mel Brooks’s various comedies like The Producers or Spielberg’s Indiana Jones movies, it was a case of “punching up” at the people who were dangerous to Jews as a people. It’s our history of coping with our humor.

I know Mel Brooks wanted Nazi ideas to look so ridiculous no one would ever want to take them seriously again. Maybe he succeeded in that. But the problem is when non-Jews and non-Romani decide to get in on the “fun” without really understanding that there is a big difference between popular fictional villains like Sauron, Darth Vader, Loki or the Joker and a real life monster like Hitler. For us, we laugh so we don’t cry. For others, they just laugh.
