Now social media generation is enamored by HITLER: AI video converting a 1939 anti-Semitic speech goes viral on X with users claiming genocidal dictator ‘doesn’t sound evil at all’ – months after Bin Laden’s letter to America became popular on TikTok


Tens of millions on Elon Musk‘s social media site X have now viewed two disturbing AI-translated clips of Adolf Hitler’s 1939 Reichstag speech.

But the videos — in which the genocidal dictator can be heard, via AI-generated English, calling for the ‘annihilation of the Jewish race’ — have been met with a number of positive replies. 

‘Did the psychopathic Globalists falsely demonize Hitler like they’re trying to demonize Putin?’ one user replied beneath the video. ‘It seems so.’

The viral moment, made possible by Musk’s free speech absolutism on his platform, follows a recent wave of interest among Gen-Z TikTokers in Osama Bin Laden’s defense of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Some social theorists have attributed this resurgent public warming to the authoritarian rhetoric of America’s historic enemies to a generational sea change.

‘A couple of generations pass from a previous time of trouble. Elites forget about that and start reconfiguring the economy in ways that favor themselves,’ as ecologist-turned-historian Peter Turchin recently told the Financial Times

‘The question is whether there’s going to be a macro-violence outbreak.’

‘I’m beginning to think we may have lost WWII,’ one user with a verified X account posted about the AI-Hitler clip. 

‘It sounds like these people cared about their country above all else,’ posted another.

His Anti-Semitism led to the Holocaust that saw six million Jews killed at the hands of the Nazi regime.

Many accounts, whether operated by humans or bots, approvingly shared links to the 2017 neo-Nazi film Europa: The Last Battle, in response to the Hitler clips.

The AI software used to generate the inflammatory Hitler videos came from voice-cloning startup ElevenLabs, according to Wired, a lab which recently faced scrutiny when its tech was used to generate robocalls impersonating President Joe Biden.

The reactions to the videos, of course, spanned political ideologies, with plenty of X users jumping into the fray to denounce AI-Hitler’s racist and anti-Semitic rhetoric, and those promoting it on the platform.

‘The guy who said he’d never marry Taylor Swift because she’s too old and that makes [Travis] Kelce gay is the same guy promoting Hitler’s AI speech,’ cybersecurity researcher @SwiftOnSecurity said in a post, referring to right-wing troll Owen Benjamin.

Faced with a similar situation in recent months, TikTok blasted users promoting a vile letter written by Osama Bin Laden in regards to the 9/11 atrocities and promised to remove any content referring to it.

‘Content promoting this letter clearly violates our rules on supporting any form of terrorism,’ TikTokPolicy wrote in a post to X, formerly Twitter.

‘We are proactively and aggressively removing this content and investigating how it got onto our platform.’

The video-sharing platform claims the number of videos on TikTok is ‘small’ and ‘reports of it trending [on the] platform is inaccurate.’ 

Bin Laden’s letter reached the social video platform via a translation published in tandem with a 2002 article in the Guardian.

As the link to the letter spread, hundreds of TikTokers posting videos in response to reading it, in which they appear to confuse the hateful diatribe for an intellectual think piece. 

Amid the TikTok resurgence, the paper subsequently deleted their translation of the terrorist mastermind’s letter, with the outlet explaining to DailyMail.com that it was being shared ‘without its original context.’  

The Guardian did not explain further as to how the link was made between the current conflict in the Middle East and a verbatim letter from bin Laden that was more than 20 years old. 

Despite the Guardian’s efforts, the letter continued to spread on X but was prevented from spreading on Reddit

The letter had been originally posted by the paper with an article explaining that the original version was in Arabic — on a website used by al-Qaeda to ‘disseminate messages’ and ‘was sent to hundreds of subscribers to an email list run by Mohammed al-Massari, the UK-based Saudi Arabian dissident.’ 

The message added that the US government was included on the list.  

TikTok’s various trending videos about the letter include no context around bin Laden’s life as a jihadist in which his followers slaughtered thousands of Muslims and non-Muslims alike or his support for some of the most oppressive political regimes imaginable.
