One of the downfalls of being a Nazi is that pretty much everyone—save for other Nazis—just straight-up hates you. Richard Spencer, the world’s most-punchable Nazi, is continuing to learn that lesson pretty frequently these days, first with Depeche Mode calling him a cunt and now with the nephew of one of the songwriters behind Cabaret’s “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” issuing a sick burn on Twitter. The movie takes place in Berlin in the ‘30s as the Nazi Party begins to take control, and the song is a gentle anthem that gradually grows into a dramatic militaristic march. It’s supposed to be spooky and unsettling, but naturally the neo-Nazis and “alt-right” assholes of the world have latched onto it as an actual song about how great they are.

As it turns out, one of the other downfalls of being a Nazi is that a philosophy built on hatred tends to be pretty exclusionary.
