    A thread dedicated just to you, our board Nazi. Motivated by your name
    and ideology I wanted to share two mp3's with you. :thup:

    The last broadcast (the last 3 minutes to be exact) of Lord Haw Haw on April 30 1945 where he is quite drunk and knew he had it coming. Its quite hilarious.
    Then I uploaded the broadcast of Axis Sallie in May 18 1943. She sound exactly like you when she talks about the Jews etc. I assume you share her views. Well enjoy.

    I uploaded it with yousendit, whoever else is interested can download it
    from the two links.

    Lord Haw-Haw was the nickname of an announcer on the English language propaganda radio programme 'Germany Calling', broadcast by Nazi German radio to audiences in Great Britain on the mediumwave station Radio Hamburg and by shortwave to the United States. The programme started on 18 September 1939 and continued until April 30, 1945, when Hamburg was overrun by the British Army.:

    The Brits executed him on a technicality for having applied for a British
    passport but he was an American (well technically)

    Out of the 12 Americans indicted for treason following World War II, all but five were radio broadcasters -- a fact all of us at WFMU can be proud of. One of the most notorious to be convicted was Mildred Gillars, or "Axis Sally" as she was known to the GI's who heard her Radio Berlin broadcasts.
    A graduate of Hunter College in New York, Gillars went to France to study music in 1929 after failing as an actress. By 1934 she was in Germany, where she fell for former Hunter professor Max Otto Koischewitz.

    Koischewitz became Radio Berlin's Program Director, and GIllars became his star propaganda broadcaster. Typically, she did a DJ program -- breaking up the music with anti-semetic raps. "Damn Roosevelt! Damn Churchill!", went one of her tirades. "Damn all Jews who made this war possible. I love America, but I do not love Roosevelt and all his **** boyfriends."

    "Axis Sally" also liked to air messages from American POWs. Telling the POWs she visited that she was a Red Cross representative, she enticed them to send happy messages to suggest that living under the Nazis, even in POW camps,was a good thing. Once on the air, she would intercut POWs messages with propaganda, despite having promised the prisoners not to do so. (classy)

    Despite all her other antics, "Axis Sally" was convicted on the basis of just one broadcast, a radio drama called "Vision of Invasion" that - on the eve of D-Day - sought to scare GI's out of invading occupied Europe. In the play, the mother of an Ohio soldier sees her son in a dream. He tells her that he's already dead, his ship having been destroyed mid-invasion by Germans. GI's can be heard sobbing and shrieking in the background, and the effect of the broadcast is said to have been chilling.

    Gillars tried several tactics in court, but ultimately claimed, unsuccessfully, that her love for Koischewitz had motivated her. Her lawyers argued that Koischewitz had a Svengali-like grip over her ; she was his puppet.
    She got sentenced to 10 -30 years and got out in 1962, died in 1980.
