Did you invent that joke? If not, where did it come from?Reminds me of this joke from fascist Italy:
A functionary visits a firm and asks the responsible guy: "Did you clean your firm from Socialists?"
"No, about 40% of the workers are - but you know, we need them, they're experienced special workers and stuff..."
"Well - is the firm free of Communists at least?"
"Actually, all the other 60% are Communists."
"What the hell? There is not a single fascist among your employees?"
"Oh, fascists? All of them are!"
Underground Humor in Nazi Germany said:At the famous Nazi march on 1 May 1933 two old friends meet. The first one clenches his fist and shouts, ‘Heil Moscow!’, whereupon the other chap says, ‘Not quite so loud—in the seventh row behind us there marches a Nazi!’
Who nowadays in the SA enlists
With both eyes shut and with a turned-up nose?
Reactionaries, true, but mostly Communists.
Now march through fear in step with former foes.
Hein, a layabout in Hamburg, used to belong to the Rotfront [the German Communist Party militia] before joining the SA in 1933. When he meets his friend Tetje the latter comments, ‘Well, well! How is it that you already have two stars on your uniform when you’ve only been in the SA a month?’
Hein: ‘Do you think it was for nothing that I served in the Rotfront for the past two years?’
In a Stormtroopers’ pub somebody has written on a wall: ‘The KPD [German Communist Party] is still alive! Hail Moscow!’ Next day somebody has written underneath it: ‘Which cowardly dog has written this? He is to report at once!’
The following day there is yet another addition: ‘I haven’t got time to report; I’m on SA duty!’
Really? I mean, look at that wiki page. Large parts of it looks like the transcript of a mental patient describing conversations they once had while doing drugs with a bunch of PolSci students. The whole thing is unlikely.I also said "imagine". I find it unlikely, that, Speer would have misrembered a conversation to such a level, as to lead to this very strange conversation.
