Dirndls Are So This Year

WHEN the new owners of  the Australian Women's Weekly march into the executive offices of what was once the Packer family’s stable of ACP magazines they will be encouraged to discover a long-standing affinity with the Fatherland. From 1936:
I have been told that a more lenient feeling toward the Jews is growing in Germany, and I certainly heard several Germans regret the persecution of these people.
        While I was in Germany it was a common sight to see numbers of well-dressed Jews dining in expensive restaurants….
         ….Leaving Germany I took with me the memory of simple-mannered, charming people; of bands of boys and girls in the uniforms of the Hitler Youth singing as they march through the country…
Indeed, such links with the past may even inspire a fresh editorial emphasis.

It may well be, for example, that no miracle diet will ever again be published under any headline but Battle of the Bulge.

A mad Spring Carnival fascinator garnished with colourful strips of satin? Why, that will be known as a Ribbon Trop.

And those stories we see from time to time of women finding their better selves via meditation and yoga, all will be said to represent The Sound of One Hans Clapping.

Readers are invited to contribute their own rootin' Teuton innovations in comments.


  1. Very brave Prof, I'm sure Abe Foxman is preparing a medal and award ceremony for you as I type.

    An historical note, if we are to compare the times, our period would most closely resemble that of the Weimar Republic:

    In the aftermath of World War I, Jews strongly supported the creation of the liberal Weimar Republic. Indeed, a Jewish socialist, Hugo Preuss who served as minister of the interior in the provisional government established after the collapse of the monarchy, was primarily responsible for drafting the Weimar constitution. Throughout the life of the Weimar regime, Jewish businessmen, journalists, and politicians were among its most active and ardent supporters.

    Through their commercial and banking activities, Jews contributed to the substantial economic development and reconstruction that took place during the Weimar era. Jewish firms accounted for nearly 80% of the business done by department and chain stores, 40% of Germany's wholesale textile firms, and 60% of all wholesale and retail clothing businesses. Almost half of all private banks were owned by Jews, as were the largest and most successful of the credit banks.


    In a continuation of the pre-World War I pattern, Jews were influential in the liberal press of the Weimar Republic. Three of the nation's most important liberal newspapers, the Berliner Tageblatt, the Vossiche Zeitung, and the Frankfurter Zeitung were owned by Jews. Jews also owned the two largest publishing houses in Germany, the Ullstein and Mosse concerns, as well as many smaller publishing firms.


    For comparison:

    How deeply Jewish is Hollywood? When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter was signed by: News Corp. President Peter Chernin (Jewish), Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey (Jewish), Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Robert Iger (Jewish), Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton (surprise, Dutch Jew), Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer (Jewish), CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves (so Jewish his great uncle was the first prime minister of Israel), MGM Chairman Harry Sloan (Jewish) and NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker (mega-Jewish). If either of the Weinstein brothers had signed, this group would have not only the power to shut down all film production but to form a minyan with enough Fiji water on hand to fill a mikvah.


    A little test: would you be brave enough to write the same style of jokes Joel Stein does?

    After all, such jokes would be more pertinent.

    Perhaps the anglophile within you prefers the final punchline, resiled to live forever in past propaganda fantasies that it's 1939 all over again:

    But I don't care if Americans think we're running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.

    Whatever happened to the British Empire anyway, didn't they win the war?

    1. Well you lost me completely. Whatever is your point, "Billy"? Please be less obtuse; tell it how you believe it is.

    2. What does "mega-Jewish" mean?


    3. A thought-provoking point about Jews in Hollywood, Billy.

      Now that we're being crazy-brave, can I just point out a lot of Chinese restaurants are run by Chinese.

  2. "Arbeit Macht Frei" or "Labor makes you Free" is a charming truth about the value of honest work.

    "Night of the Long Knives" cosmopolitan fine dining.

    Concentration camps. Weight loss centers.

    Big Bertha. Whoops wrong war...

  3. "Kristallnacht" - a new glass removal business.

  4. Big helpful article coming up for those fed up with the kids' nasty smelly little leftie pets spinning uselessly around in their Hammygar wheels fouling the nest, profligately helping themselves to supplies, and generally running amok with no redeeming features: "How to keep Goebbels under control".

  5. Really, Prof, I know we need to stand up for free speech, but that need not include nutty speech posted by conspiracy theorists.

    The first poster has used your site for a little rant about the power of the jew, implicitly endorsing the petty anti-semitism of the Women's Weekly article ("well-dressed jews in expensive restaurants" . . well, maybe it's partly their fault!).

    You don't have to post drivel and claptrap like this to prove your free-speech credentials, surely?

    Great to have you back BTW. Have you been missed!

    1. Hey, if we're gonna get all anti-German, let's open up the whole field.

      At least my comment is well sourced, whereas yours is just a pissy whinge.

      Btw, what did you find anti-semitic about it? Joel Stein? Is Joel Stein a self hating Jew now? Sheesh, this world gets more and more ridiculous by the day.

    2. Anti-German??

      Bottom line is I can't tell Prof what to allow on his own site, so I will try to be conciliatory.

      I think you'll find this site congenial:, and in particular the writings of Gordon Duff, a very smart guy indeed. Gordon thinks that Rupert Murdoch is a jew, a Mossad agent, an Israeli citizen AND responsible for 9/11. Iraq, Afghanistan and the GFC. Check it out at

      Or if that's too nuanced for you, go straight to, where you can be sure of a warm welcome.

    3. Anon. Pointing out that there is a slight over representation of Jewish people in the US entertainment industry is hardly mindless bigotry.

      More a statement of fact.

  6. Prof, from your 1936 WW link:

    "This is our leader", said a Nazi official, showing me a much decorated photograph of Herr Hitler. “We follow him blindly, though we do not always know what his meaning is, or what the end will be.”

    Wow! Just wow!

    So who will be the 21st century Hitler? Conditions are ideal in the sophisticated, educated, wealthy West for the emergence of such a tyrant. But, instead of the lies and propaganda being forced on the people by the government, it is being volunteered by ideologues who have subverted large tracts of the news media. I can reel off a dozen examples from this morning's media, here and overseas.

    1. Ah, how sweet of all those young boys and girls engaged in such healthy activities to celebrate their leader. And he a vegetarian and art lover. And what's more he was so kind to dogs. Imagine. Just three years later the nasty, war-mongering West were waging war on these poor people. And all the leader wanted was for the German diaspora to be back in the bosom of the Fatherland. And here we are, seventy years later, giving those poor peace-loving Islamics such a hard time with blasphemous films and racist comments.

    2. Wow just wow! let me guess, that was said by Little Willie Shortass,who won at the last Olympics the gold for blind faith in one's leader???

  7. Self Defense for Women; Judo, not just for making bagels.

  8. Yep, the Jews can read and comprehend how 'work will make them free', no slow learners there.

Alas, their F15K is the largest modifiable platform they have. 
Without the GBU 57 and another platform there is no non nuc way to do the deep, critical storage, iranian bunkers.
So reality bites.
The above ground infra-stucture and shallow bunkers are doable via GBU 28, that gives a 2-3 year extension.

Amazingly, the best convoluted bet may be subversion of the mullahs via a (personally experienced) vibrant middle class. Parisienne fashions worn under the burka is a For Whom The Bell Tolls moment.......

  9. Say what you like about the tenets of national socialism, at least it's an ethos...

  10. An article on how to have sparkling glassware and silverware under the title of Polish

  11. “We follow him blindly, though we do not always know what his meaning is, or what the end will be.” - posted by Tom above.

    Tom, isn't that what Bill Shorten said? Didn't he say that he's in full agreement with Dear Leader, even though he didn't know what she said?

  12. The gala event leading up to the Spring Carnival will be the One Brass Ball.

  13. Take me to your lederhosen!

  14. Umm Prof, have you been ill and not fully recovered?

    This is a most extraordinary post and smacks of someone who is either jewish and has an axe to grind or has watched Fawlty Towers far too often.

    Isi Liebler, poor demented bugger, would be proud.

    1. Quite right, anonymous, I've long suspected that the "professor" might be suspect in the racial hygiene department. That's the problem with the web, people can implicitly pose as aryans ('Professor Bunyip' -- what could be more anodyne and racially hygienic?), but all the while they're just another insidious brick in the (wailing) wall, if you get my meaning.
      The National Socialists in the mid-1930s were the most misunderstood and unjustly villified group of their time. They realised that the aryan race faced a mortal threat. As Hitler said so eloquently in Mein Kampf, if the jews succeeded in involving the world in another war, it could only have one outcome: the total annihilation (Vernichtung) of the jewish race. And he was almost right in predicting that result! What a visionary.
      I agree, the prof must be jewish for sneering at this balanced, perceptive piece in the Women's Weekly, posted by a wholesome Aryan girl who saw the Nazis for what they really were: "Simple-mannered, charming people; bands of boys and girls in the uniforms of the Hitler Youth singing as they march through the country."
      And didn't they subsequently prove what simple mannered, charming people they were, in Warsaw, Rotterdam, London, and Auschwitz.
      Hail Victory!

    2. "people can implicitly pose as aryans"

      Anon above, as a lifelong student of history with a particular interest in the migrations of people over millennia, allow me to inform you that people who claim to be "Aryans", in particular residents of Iran and sections of the German people, most decidedly aren't.

      The people who are recorded in history as Aryans were offshoots of the Parthian Empire who migrated from Persia into northern India. They were noted as being good and just rulers, tall, fair people who were skilled horsemen (first people to bring horses to India), and their language was Paleo-Hebrew written in Old Persian script (Sanskrit).

      The Aryans were the clan of Erin (spl?), one of the grandchildren or great-grandchildren of Ephraim. The tribe of Ephraim was one of the northern tribes of Israel which were taken captive by Assyria and relocated around Assyria's northern and eastern borders, from the Black Sea to Persia. These captive tribes, shortly after being taken captive, rebelled and overthrew the Assyrian Empire and established themselves as the main powers in Asia Minor and are known in history through their two largest federations, the Saccae Scythians and the Parthian Empire.

      They eventually migrated west into Europe after the Sassanian revolt, but what I find interesting is that their subject people, in particular the Persians and sections of Edom and Assyria who followed them into eastern Europe, claim themselves to be the Aryans.

      It is ironic that these markedly anti-Semitic people claim themselves to be the Aryans, who were in fact also Hebrews from a clan of Ephraim, i.e., another branch of the (non-Jewish, i.e., not descendants of Judah) Hebrews.

    3. How many Germans do we have to see slaughtered in Hollywood fims before smart people begin to twig that there is a campaign of vilification going on, just not directed AT Jews but by them?

    4. I see. I see. So the Jews have their talons in the film industry, not to destroy civilisation by corroding our aryan moral fibre - which I thought was the conventional narrative of fruitloops like you - but (let me get this straight) to humiliate Germans .... by turning war movies?
      Who are you? Dr Friedrich Töben? David Duke? Or just Billy Nudgel under yet another alias?

  15. Liam Neeson's German uncle spotted a new flower during whilst watching a bomb explode. He called it the "Hans Neeson boom see daisy"

  16. another classic from the late 1930s Womens Weekly:

    "Who will win Hitler's heart?"

  17. In the years after 1936 the Weekly only slowly weans itself from pro-German articles.

    Recipes include Eva Braunies, Luftwaffles and Goering burgers with two enormous buns.

    Then, the war brings austerity. There are still knitting patterns, but they are down to the bare bones. Don’t ask about the ink or paper.

    Afterwards everything is different. The modest authoress, Marjorie Florance, who once rejected a “dear old man’s” suggestion in a German train that she was a racial “cross” [“I hated to disillusion him, but for the honor of my ancestry it was necessary”] decides she is Aboriginal after all, sues a journalist for saying otherwise, and has her Jewish lawyer compare his article to the Nuremberg race laws.

    She wins the case and the story ends happily when the Weekly’s new owners put Marjorie in charge. There, she completes her personal transformation, and that of the magazine, by widening its readership to include gay people and the frail aged. Anne Summers writes on Alzheimer’s (when she can remember to) and David Marr has a Weekly agony column with a difference – the agony comes from reading it.
