The Greatest Speech Ever Said

I’m telling you, this is probably one of the best speeches you will ever see in your life. A speech given twenty years later by Adenoid Hynkel (cf. Adolf Hitler), also played by Chaplin, now the ruthless dictator of Tomainia, who has undertaken to persecute Jews throughout the land, aided by Minister of the Interior Garbitsch and Minister of War Herring. The symbol of Hynkel’s fascist regime is the “double cross” and Hynkel himself speaks in a macaronic parody of the German language (reminiscent of Hitler’s own fiery speeches), “translated” at humorously obvious parts in the speech by an overly concise English-speaking news voice-over.

This is some deep stuff!
