Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] snapesgirl34 for bringing this to my attention: a Dutch fascist cartoon from 1943, loosely inspired off Van Den Vos Reynaerde, a comedic fable and the oldest literary work in Dutch. If you'd like to know more, there's a bit on Wikipedia. The YouTube video itself is a clip from Dutch national television about it being rediscovered.


I translate the narration. )

Of course, the people who placed this online (and edited it) are Stormfront, a contemporary fascist movement for Dutch-speaking people. Do I need to attach a coda to what I think of fascism's legacy and its dehumanizing effects? I think I'll just go watch Der Untergang on TV.
