Hitler was lazy. Discuss

Not sure of the political correctness of this post. Let’s give it a go and see how things turn out.

I must have watched over a hundred documentaries about the War, Nazism, Hitler etc. And something I’ve often thought, but only today shared, is that Hitler was quite lazy. Whenever he gave the Hitler salute (Hitlergruß in German; I wonder whether he called it that), it always seems as if he really couldn’t be bothered, his arm lazily rising up to around head height, by no means straight nor indeed authoritative, a far cry from the right arms of the people he was greeting, held loftily and firmly straight above their heads.

I guess he got bored of it all. After all, his greetees only had to do it whenever they met him. He had to do it whenever he greeted anyone.

    Its just an officer thing, the lazy salute. As opposed to the crisp salute of the Sergeant Major.
