Images of Canberra – Nazi Gnome at Floriade

By 24 September 2008 28

There’s no immediate explanation as to why this little fella’s adorning Floriade.

Anyone have any theories?

The theme is fascination with film or somesuch…

Romper Stomper?

He’s got rather dark skin for a Nazi.

And a barely plucked mono-brow…

But I’ll concede the coachwood and myrtle might be a shoutout to South Sydney.

The symbol on his belt isn’t the Swastika of the NDSP. Their swastika is rotated so that it’s borders would form a diamond rather than a square.

He’s a very confused little gnome – trying to be both an anarchist and also a follower of Der Furher.

Looking a bit dark? Adolf wouldn’t like that. And he definitely wouldn’t like the anarchy logo.

Has anyone noticed the Anarchist symbol on his/her (you just don’t know these days) right arm?

Whilst it is correct that the NDSP symbol forms a diamond, you cannot deny the colours (red, white & black).

Having lived in Germany and having an understanding of modern German culture, whoever painted this is a simple Arschloch und Dummkopf. If this is meant to be a parody, then it fails horribly considering the issues with the NPD and racial issues that face current Germany (Mostly in the former DDR states and South Germany- basically the equivalent to Australia’s Bogans).

If it’s someone who’s actually a neo, well sorry mate but a real Neo Nazi would never get a Anarchist tattoo… nochmal: Arshloch. Also going to prove that every and any neo-Nazi is as unintelligent as a particular female vice-presidential candidate, possibly even dumber (actually that’s really not possible is it?).

That would further explain the Russell Crowe connection given the Rabbitohs beanie.

Yeah, I think Romper Stomper is the theme here.

I think that gladiator might have been a teeny bit classier.

Sid Vicous used to wear a t-shirt with a swastica on it… maybe a 1970′s politically uncorrect punk gnome?

I hate gnomes.

Damn I love the German language, especially when someone calls someone else nasty names ^_^
Any good places that are free/easy to learn it?

The Goethe Institute offers courses. There are also fairly cheap CIT courses available. Otherwise, a wealth of material online……

….you Arschlecker.

But less Australian, given the theme of Floriade is “Films that Shaped our Nation”

A black nazi gnome, hmmm… Would have been even more interesting if the hat was plain white and came down over the eyes…

It looks like Mick Aston from Timeteam, albeit, with some Nazi regalia…

The BBC has a nice online course you can complete in 12 weeks.

I’m guessing a lot of people here aren’t familiar with the ‘nazi’ subscene in the punk movement of the 70′s/80′s. The bane of many a concert.

I’d definitely say it’s Romper Stomper inspired.

Very similar tats to Romper Stomper – note what appears to be the skeletal tattoo down the Gnome’s left arm and hand.

And in some the film’s promo pics I found on Google images the swastika in the background is positioned as a square and not a diamond…

cheerio!

I went looking for the gnome yesterday, to get my own photographic evidence, and it was gone!

I can only hope you were sitting down for that news, bubzie, and that you have a good, strong heart!

*tee hee*

Ah yes, more successfully brainwashed morons produced out of the Zionist media empire. Actually the German forces were the most multicultural of all, take a look at these two links:

Wow! A whole TWO books, written by the same author. That’s it! Everyone re-write the history books! We’ve obviously had it wrong this whole time!
