It's his wide eyed innocence that makes me laugh everytime, I'm sure it's mostly put one but it's still brilliant.

Louis and the Nazis is a made for tv film that came out in 2003. It was a great film. If you are into torrent websites, then check out myspleen.net for the film (members only place). It's not illegal, because the film is never coming out on dvd. At least that's what I tell my conscience.

I haven't watched these before, but I absolutely love this guy's stuff. Why isn't there more of this sort of reporting on TV? Does his stuff play on American television?

Wow, that is compelling television

I think Louis and the Nazis is one of his best pieces just because of the subject matter. On one hand you have this old racist bastard who used to be head of the KKK but still is able to function in society without being a huge asshole to everyone (take his mexican 'friend'/customer) and you can tell he is actually an intelligent human being and can even make fun of his racism (the bbq joke).

On the other hand you've got the skinheads... least said the better.

Hi thanks for posting these, forgot how good Louis Theroux is.

If you like Louis then you'll probably like Jon Ronson as well. He's a journalist for The Guardian newspaper in England. He's a very funny guy. Here's a link to his video on google with David Icke.

These reinforce my belief that the BBC >>>> American programming. :( WTB something this good and this eye-opening on a cable channel. The best we can do is MythBusters.

For those who have access to BBC1, a new Louis Theroux is on this Sunday (Behind Bars). Details here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcone/listings/programme.shtml?day=sunday&service_id=4232&filename=20080113/20080113_2100_4224_14778_60

Theroux's been working the Harry Potter pose,
the family name, and that comfy 'lifer' gig at
state propaganda central BBC for just about
5 years too long. And he's been recycling the
themes as well.

He's retreading, to little effect, the Westboro
bunch, and is on his third?--fourth round of
prisons?

As police state surveillance now undeniably encompasses us all ---this MUST be a predictive
programming ploy direct from the ever sinister
Tavistock Institute (SEE John C Coleman on Tavistock)

ANYWAY----

Time to leave the 'Beeb' and swing them cameras
around wonderfully on the 'men behind the curtains', the 'hidden masters' of Globalism.

Time for---

"LOUIS and the EUGENISTS"

There he is, chatting up Evelyn de Rothchild,
David Rockefeller and Ted Turner!

"---SO, tell me gentlemen, as we survey those
over 50 MILLION exterminated unborn ---in the US
alone, is it time to start thinking of guys like Beria,
Yehzov and Himmler, not as 'monsters', but as
'overzealous and misdirected'? Is it time to
start thinking of even MAO TSE TUNG as sort
of the 'Martha Stewart of pro-active social engineering'?"

----------TUNE IN AND FIND OUT!
