International Automobile Federation president Max Mosley-Sexy Hitler

Were it not for his family history, the British media might eventually have dismissed the Nazi-themed sex romp of international motor-racing chief Max Mosley as just another instance of British upper-class bad taste. (Even Prince Harry, remember, showed up at a costume party three years ago in a military uniform with a swastika armband.) But Mosley, the urbane president of the body that governs Formula One racing, is under increasing pressure to resign following revelations of a sex scandal involving prostitutes, sadomasochism and alleged Nazi-style role-play. That pressure may reflect the brand concerns of mass-market automakers involved in Grand Prix racing, but the fact that Mosley’s parents were high-profile Hitler fans may have intensified the media clamor.
“Needs more of ze punishment.”
Last Sunday the British tabloid News of the World posted video footage on its website of Mosley and five prostitutes in what it frothily described as “a depraved Nazi-style orgy in a torture dungeon.” In the secretly filmed video, the paper reports, Mosley “barks orders in German as he whips two hookers dressed in striped uniforms reminiscent of Auschwitz garb while girls in Nazi uniforms look on.”
The video, which has been removed from the newspaper’s web site, also captures a prostitute commanding Mosley to strip before she inspects his head and genitals for lice, which the paper suggest was “mocking the humiliating ways Jews were treated by SS death camp guards in World War II.” Placed in chains, Mosley leans over a torture bench and whimpers as a dominatrix strikes him with a rod, saying “You’re going to be shown how we treat prisoners in our facility.” Later, when Mosley takes hold of a whip, he states that a blonde inmate “needs more of ze punishment.”
The one thing about this story that intrigues me is that his parents were
Adamant supporters of the Hitler Movement. You would never see our NASCAR guys involved with a stunt like this, mimicking our slave days of old. Can’t you just picture an old German guy being like, “Now grab Ze whip and command your little servant girl to fetch me thie Lube.”
Maybe I will watch Nascar now?
