THE SPECTATOR MAKES A SPECTACLE OF ITSELF

‘In praise of the Wehrmacht’ – Twitter outrage at sneaky Spectator Nazi army headline swap

'In praise of the Wehrmacht’ - Twitter outrage at sneaky Spectator Nazi army headline swap

In a spectacular own-goal the right-wing magazine The Spectator published an article online headlined ‘In praise of the Wehrmacht.’ Despite the copy being quickly changed, the original was screen-grabbed and shared on Twitter.

The piece, attributed to ‘Taki’, had it’s headline subsequently changed to ‘The truth about D-Day.’ Taki’s opening gambit was also changed from: “The real story of D-Day is the heroism of German soldiers who were vastly outnumbered but fought nobly and to the death,” was subsequently changed to the more palatable “Don’t believe the Hollywood version. The fact is the Wehrmacht were sitting ducks.”

Rather than reading like an expose on the Steven Spielberg-esque narrative of the Second World War as the “Hollywood bullshit,” he claims it is, the piece does in fact read, as one Twitter user put it, like “praise for the Wehrmacht,” which some editor thought would make a great title.
