Nazis and UFOs
I’m not sure why, but I’ve been fascinated by the Nazi-UFO connection/conspiracy/theory for a long time. Not that I buy into it, I don’t, my interest is a distraction, a guilty pleasure, a weird little hobby. It’s goofy, in a terrifying and horrible kind of way. Maybe it’s the juxtaposition of the hard andevil reality of the Nazis, and the esoteric, “non-reality” (so to speak) of UFOs. Somewhere in between there is the fact the Nazis were involved in the occult and dark secret magick doings, and really did build "ufos."
On the other hand, I wouldn’t be surprised by anything any more. It was in one of the Illuminati Trilogy books by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson in the early 1970s, where Nazi soldiers underneath a lake were called to life by skinhead neo-nazi rock and rollers; something like that. I read that many years ago but every now and then something happens in the world that makes me think “Any time now, there’s going to rise up some vile thing that’s going to just overtly take over. No more hiding, covering up or pretending the rest of us are paranoid kooks.” That’s on my good days. On my bad days, I throw in Giant Reptilians and the reality of Dick Cheney’s immortality.
There are reasons why this idea of Nazi UFOs habitating and controlling the earth to this day persists. A sociologist can have herself a good time tackling that one. We did have Operation Paperclip. Dr. Evils abound, then and now. Our government, all governments do heinous things -- and to its own people. Nothing new there. Add in the afore mentioned interest in occultism, and flying disks, and there you go.
Holocaust denier and anti-Semite Ernst Zündel (or victim of free speech suppression, if you like Jeff Rense) wrote about the UFO and Nazi connection, and “sold (for $9999) seats on an exploration team to locate the underground base. Some people who interviewed Zündel about this material claim that he privately admitted it was a deliberate hoax to build publicity for Samisdat, although he still defended it as late as 2002."

There’s a lot of material out there on the subject. If you’re interested in exploring the topic, you’ll find yourself with hours of internet fun Googling “nazi ufos” or some such.
