Hidden camera planted in Cold Case Posse headquarters

RC posted the video on YouTube. Just WOW!

While this video bears many marks of authenticity, and it is uncannily accurate in many of its details, I cannot of my own knowledge vouch for its origins. If it is a fake, it is brilliant.

    My favorite line, “If I hear Gallups talk about all the anonymous VIPs once more, I’m going to puke.” I feel the same way. My skin crawls whenever I hear that slimy faux pastor talk. He oozes mendacity like an infected wound oozes pus.

    Second favorite: “Don’t cry Mara! You tried but you’re just an idiot.”

    I don’t know. I just finished reading about the last days of Hitler in the Fuehrerbunker. (The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich) While I find the antics of the CCCP beyond absurd and self serving, I feel uncomfortable about the Hitler association. They are sinking their ship quicky on their own.

    It is satire. If I could have found a good Keystone Kops or Marx Brothers movie maker I would have used that. Once I started writing the script it did kind of flow though. This video has been used so many times it is cartoonish at this point. There might be some situations where it would not be appropriate but I didn’t see the case of a bunch of white conservative republicans running a smear campaign against a black President as being one of them.

    I bet a lot of Birthers laughed when they watched this but they would never admit it.

    I’m getting the feeling that they’ll NEVER address the Xerox issue, and avoid the subject like the plague every time it’s brought up. Trailing off to talk of VIPs and experts.
    The other likely option, is that they’ll try to explain the whole Xerox thing away with “Well we have no proof that Xerox machine was used!”

    Dr. Conspiracy: I wouldn’t read too much into the video, I see it as satire, not analogy.

    Indeed. There are hundreds of videos on Youtube that use this section of the film “Downfall” (German, “Der Untergang” 2004) to spoof everything from Hitler getting banned from playing XBox Live to his overwhelming desire for a Burger King Whopper. One of the most controversial parodies is a Hebrew-subtitled version in which Hitler bemoans the lack of parking in Tel Aviv. These parodies began appearing on YouTube in early 2006 and have become a genre of their own. As the website, “Know Your Meme,” observes,

    “Due to ‘Der Untergang’s’ international success and Bruno Ganz’ haunting portrayal of the Nazi dictator, numerous segments from the movie soon fell fodder to hilarious parodies on YouTube, spawning hundreds of anachronistically subtitled videos of Hitler getting upset over topical events and trivial gossip.”

    RC:

    “It is satire. If I could have found a good Keystone Kops or Marx Brothers movie maker I would have used that.”

    Keystone Kops was the first thing that came to mind also. It was an excellent satire and it really did flow. In context I had just finished reading how Dr. and Frau Goebbels had murdered their 6 children, Hela age 12; Hilda ,11; Helmut, 9; Holde, 7; Hedda, 5; Heide, 3, during their last days in Hitler’s bunker. Their mother wrote, “They belong to the Third Reich and to the Fuehrer, and if these two cease to exist there can be no further place for them.” At that moment I was thinking about what happened in the bunker to children and how parents could think and do such a thing. At the time my frame of reference wasn’t on satire. It was me, not you RC.

And my job is to get everyone to row in the same direction.” Smith looked perplexed and asked, “Yeah, but what about the hole?”

    Do you think that your boorish manners and namecalling help your case one whit? Mr. Obama is still President, and will be until Jan. 20, 1917, because all the relevant authority is on his side.
    All the people you mentioned don’t have to prove anythying. Those who are delusional enough — including Mr. Gas Bag — to think that our president can somehow be ousted by birther BS are the ones that bear the burden of proof. But they can’t — not in 3 1/2 years, not in 10 years, not in 100 years, not ever.

    Well, Mr Zullo needs to get to work! All NBC has proven is that the image COULD have been created starting with the Xerox Workcentre and followed his work flow. Mr Zullo claims it is completely a man-made computer generation from scratch. So, the best way he can counter NBC is to create the document completely from scratch and document all the steps so that it can be recreated by interested birthers like scott and John. Now, we know that the CCP doesn’t have anyone capable of that kind of work, so he’ll need to hire an outside expert or else it will be blown up almost immediately. I figure conservatively that it will take around 75-100 man hours and cost in the $100-$150/hour range to do the work for him. If he’s willing to pay, I’m sure that after asking 200-300 experts, he should be able to find one to take his money and do what he wants. Of course the expert, like all the other experts hired by birthers, will be happy to do the job and take their money…the expert will also think that Mr Zullo is…

    He has no time for details because he has no concerns. He’s a little busy bee getting his book ready for publication. The book is the last act in the play. The county prosecuting attorney won’t do anything. Congress won’t do anything. “But, let me tell you in a book everything I did and why they are all wrong.” It’s time to get out the hook and pull this guy off the stage.

    “You keep saying you got something for me… ” ( Sounds like Zullo and Gallups?)

    Hitler in the bunker…boy, that’s always one of my favorite memes, the dictator brought down by his own hubris, surrounded by his adoring flunkies and nervous supporters, the former looking to die with the leader, the latter looking for the nearest survivable exit.

    That incident depicted in the film pretty much happened as it was shot. Der Fuehrer was told on April 22, 1945, that the 3rd SS Panzer Corps under Obergruppenfuhrer Steiner had been unable to follow orders to attack to relieve the growing siege of Berlin, and Hitler went berserk that an order of his was not obeyed.

    He threw a galactic tantrum, and finally admitted the war was lost, and that he would stay in the bunker and die in it. I’ve seen Alec Guinness and Anthony Hopkins do effective Hitlers, and Bruno Ganz was tremendous in the role.

    However, few things beat Dick Shawn or Gary Beach as Hitler in the two versions of “The Producers:” the first as a drugged-out hippie, the second mincing his way through the part.

    As for “Gas Bag Blog:”
