Tom Phillips Reacts to the Failure of the October Surprise

You may have seen various "Hitler Reacts" videos on YouTube. They're made from a clip taken from the 2004 German film Der Untergang (one of my favorite films, incidentally). In this scene, Hitler goes bonkers when he's informed that Obergruppenf├╝hrer Felix Steiner was not able to amass enough troops to break the Soviet stronghold on Berlin.

Well, the Internet being what it is, people have taken this clip and superimposed faux-English "translations" of Hitler reacting to all sorts of things: current events, politics, celebrity gossip, the outcome of sports games, etc.

For example, here is one of Hitler reacting to Home Teaching.

Someone really clever has made a "Hitler Reacts" video involving Tom Phillips and his reaction to the failure of the March Miscarriage October Surprise.

This has to be, I confess, one of the funnies clips I've seen in a long time. It's just . . . perfect.

Also, two things.

1. Ex- and anti-Mormons will, no doubt, use this video as yet another example of those mean, nasty Mormons smearing people they disagree with. Frankly, I don't care what the RfM or Ex-Mormon Reddit people think about this video. I myself have no issue with satirically comparing Phillips with Hitler. Partly because it's a joke, and partly because I have absolutely zero respect for Phillips to begin with.

2. Keep in mind that everything in quotation marks are actual quotes from Phillips himself (save one, which comes from his partner in crime David Twede). (See here and here.)
