Images of Canberra – Nazi Gnome at Floriade

johnboy 24 September 2008 28

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

Anyone have any theories?

He’s got rather dark skin for a Nazi.

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:

Now go educate yourselves fools.

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!

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

*tee hee*

Omigosh! Somebody’s kidnapped the Gnazi Gnome!!

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

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’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.

Any good places that are free/easy to learn it?

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

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

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

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

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

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

….you Arschlecker.

Sid Vicous used to wear a t-shirt with a swastica on it… maybe a 1970’s politically uncorrect punk gnome?

I hate gnomes.

Sammy Sammy 6:22 pm 24 Sep 08

Yeah, I think Romper Stomper is the theme here.

The theme is fascination with film or somesuch…

Romper Stomper?

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