SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA. — San Juan Capistrano politics has its own Hitler video parody.
There are literally thousands of these parodies on YouTube, which borrow a scene from Downfall, a film made in 2004, during which the Fuhrer realizes he cannot win the war. There’s even a video Hitler parody about Hitler parodies.
San Juan’s version plays up recent tensions among two political factions in town: the council majority led by Mayor Sam Allevato and those who want to recall the mayor.
A minority member of the City Council recently compared the mayor to Hitler himself for attempting to ban newspaper racks from City Hall, a move a judge ordered reversed, and for Allevato personally showing up where petitioners are gathering signatures, which some find intimidating.
