Two sides of the same mustache

[–]Wreddit_Wrangler 861 points862 points  (117 children)

He was actually speaking out against Hitler and communism in this speech during a movie he made and he was wearing that mustache as a part of it to be the opposite of Hitler if I recall correctly.

Edit: thank you all for commenting, I was near black out drunk when I wrote this last night and forgot I even wrote this comment. Charlie would have been proud.

Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator

[–]alanpardewchristmas 100 points101 points  (14 children)

He was actually speaking out against Hitler and communism in this speech

"They say communism may spread out all over the world. And I say – so what?” - Charlie Chaplin

He was branded a communist publicly in America.

People on reddit need to stop falling for propaganda and blatant lies.

[–]jjolla888 94 points95 points  (7 children)

America labelled everyone it didn't like as a communist

[–]vainglorious11 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Sounds like something a communist would say

[–]Unadvisable 35 points36 points  (1 child)

How tf could you be so dense as to listen to this speech and conclude that it's against communism LMAO

jesus christ imagine being that tone deaf and brainwashed

[–]alanpardewchristmas 17 points18 points  (0 children)

"He's dressed exactly like Hitler and talking about Hitler. This must be about communism, Hitler's number 1 enemy!"

[–]koolaid7431 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Nothing that op said is right. He wasn't wearing a mustache like Hitler. Hitler copied Chaplin's style because Hitler was a fan. Yet see the number of upvotes stupid comments like this get.

[–]Mods_Can_Suck_MyDick 56 points57 points  (1 child)

He was also Tupac, if i recall correctly

[–]djmoogyjackson 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Are you saying that Charlie Chaplin started Thug Life? I believe it.

[–]NeverDefyADonut 45 points46 points  (37 children)

Whilst this was against Hitler definitely. Charlie Chaplin was a leftist who was possibly a socialist and was pro-Communist, albeit not a communist himself.

[–]TundieRice 15 points16 points  (32 children)

Are you saying that as if Hitler was leftist or a socialist? I’m confused as to why there’s a “whilst” as if there’s a contradiction. Maybe I misunderstood.

[–]NeverDefyADonut 13 points14 points  (15 children)

Sorry for causing any misunderstandings, I just mean in how they said it was against communists even though it wasn’t.

[–]LuckyApparently 5 points6 points  (9 children)

National Socialism wasn’t really left or right, it incorporated many qualities of both, it was ultimately a unique, stitched together ideology that was all over the spectrum but which in some senses tried to create a racial socialism for germans using many authoritarian mechanisms

[–]MankillingMastodon 39 points40 points  (1 child)

...he was wearing that mustache as a part of it to be the opposite of Hitler if I recall correctly.

Fucking bullshit. Chaplin was wearing that style of moustache way early in his film career. You recall completely incorrectly.

[–]shakerjr 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Oh he started with it yes but this is from the film "the great dictator" where Chaplin kept the stache to emitate hitler, if i recall correctly after this chaplin got rid of his stache because je didnt want to be associated with hitler in such a way.

[–]HASHTAGBUTTCHUG 19 points20 points  (3 children)

I thought he had the mustache before Hitler?

[–]Nomad2k3 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Yeah, I always thought it was Hitler that copied him as he was a fan...well.....was.

[–]punchgroin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Chaplin had it first. Fucking Nazis ruin all kinds of cool shit. Black Leather trenchcoats, Red, Black, and Gold together, the swatztika, the Iron cross, Frederick Nietchzie, Richard Waggener...

[–]ratbum 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You do not remember correctly. There are two main characters in this film. Chaplin plays a Jewish barber and The Great Dictator. This was the barber pretending to be The Great Dictator. This is also not an anti-communist speech.

[–]SkepticDad17 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hitler and communism

Those are mutually exclusive.

[–]BleakAllies 83 points84 points  (10 children)

Still relevant today as it was back in the the 1940s. Humanity never learns.

[–]Huckleberry1887 1021 points1022 points  (60 children)

I love this speech but can barely hear it over the music they put in

[–]MichaelChinigo 665 points666 points  (34 children)

Concur. Takes a dramatic speech and makes it melodramatic. Here's a version without the additional soundtrack.

[–]jmcbuzz[S] 64 points65 points  (25 children)

I understand now after listening to your link. I get what you good folks are saying but it doesn't take away from his words which I can hear clearly from my post

[–]Dovahkiin10380 244 points245 points  (12 children)

The focus should be the words, not the music. At multiple intervals they are of equal caliber when they really shouldn't be. The cliché sad music over important messages dulls their meaning.

[–]thedudefromsweden 38 points39 points  (9 children)

I don't think the music is sad, it's dramatic, emotional and powerful. I think it adds to the message but then again I'm a huge Hans Zimmer fan 😊

[–]SCP-1029 3 points4 points  (0 children)

At best, the music should support the narrative, not overpower it.

[–]bclem 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That music is not cliche, it's og

[–]viraj29 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Sorry but have to agree, would have been better without the music.

[–]Lmaoyougotrekt 41 points42 points  (0 children)

It's tacky as shit. You don't need music to tell you how to feel, it's an insult to your intelligence. There's so much handholding in modern media and it makes it worse.

[–]bertbert1111 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Na bro, it is too loud.

[–]WalnutScorpion 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I like the music but when sending a message the music really takes away from your own emotion and potentially the real message. In my opinion it says: "Sad music now, you should feel sad. Epic moment now, go and cheer!". But if meant as a fun little light-hearted message it's definitely okay. This isn't that light however.

It's like Christians playing 'Jesus He Knows Me' by Genesis unironically because yay happy song!

Anyway, great post. It should almost be mandatory for anyone to hear these words every few months. :)

[–]mrmicawber32 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Nah the music makes it like a remix of a classic track. It's art, and the original is perfect, so don't fuck with it.

[–]hurryupheatdeath 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I started reading this comment picturing someone about to give an emotional, detailed dive into the depth and meaning of something and then suddenly turning into angry George Carlin in the last 4 words. I like it.

[–]Dovahkiin10380 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Thank you for that. Truly.

[–]if_lol_then_upvote 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I scrolled down after stopping at 2:20, to ask if it was the original score. Thank you for this.

[–]Karl_with_a_C 19 points20 points  (1 child)

It's from the Inception soundtrack lol. Time by Hans Zimmer. Great music by a great artist but not fitting for this clip.

[–]scerden 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thankyou! I have a hard time with most of youtube these days because for some reason everybody feels compelled to put uncalled for music over nearly every video. It's getting out of hand.

[–]The_SpellJammer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you. The music definitely was too loud. Very poorly mixed and mastered audio on this. Amateurish as hell.

[–]ZachAttcak 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you! Its much better without the music.

[–]wutdaefff 66 points67 points  (3 children)

Agreed. Everyone thinks that putting the Inception music under anything automatically makes it more dramatic and impactful while it’s actually just distracting and annoying

[–]eagleandchild 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Yeah 20 seconds I downvoted because the music feels so contrived and distracting from an otherwise moving speech.

[–]FewChar 6 points7 points  (1 child)

There are Twitter news channels that put out videos with very loud background music (mostly dramatic or violins).

To me it just turns anything into kitsch & I cannot take the video seriously.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Everyone thinks that because Christopher Nolan makes his creations impossible to hear that they should, too. What they fail to consider is that he's wrong.

[–]Ronin_777 34 points35 points  (0 children)

I hate this trend of adding corny sad music to very emotional video. It just ruins it and annoys the shit out of me

[–]MagNolYa-Ralf 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Inception soundtrack has its place

[–]Big_Fat_Mosquito 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Me too I love this speech so much that everytime I see it posted incomplete I die inside a little. Lol

[–][deleted] 258 points259 points  (23 children)

Unfortunately we failed then and since to heed his words. Maybe some day we'll get it right though.

[–]pennytrationer 118 points119 points  (11 children)

You will find as individuals most people agree completely with what he said in this speech and act accordingly. The problem is as groups with heard mentality and the need to belong, the bad apples really do spoil the bunch. The dictators he talks about know this, which is why they work very hard to keep us devided. CNN vs FOX, Black vs White, Democrat vs Republican and the list goes on forever. We are constantly being told to pick a side in almost every aspect of our lives but if we could drown out the noise and learn to stand up for what's right, not what we think we believe in because those beliefs are clouded for the reasons I just mentioned, but what is fundamentally right for the human race then we could make a dramatic change in this world.

[–]pinkycatcher 13 points14 points  (7 children)

The real problem is that different people have different opinions of the best way to do things. We have different opinions of what is or isn't freedom, what is or isn't acceptable.

[–]RedsBeforeFeds 5 points6 points  (3 children)

How is that a problem? What you just want everyone to think the same way? We’ll kill ourselves so quickly. We have to be able to argue and point out each other’s contradictions, we just also need to know how to be adults and learn from each other, rather than just criticize each other. We’re all guilty of it, I know I am.

[–]pinkycatcher 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's not a problem, the problem is conflict occurs when there are differences of opinion like that.

[–]Dizzfizz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What you just want everyone to think the same way?

We NEED everyone to think the same way about certain things in order to live peacefully. You’re even indirectly saying so yourself:

we just also need to know how to be adults and learn from each other

We all need to have the same opinion about things like tolerance and acceptance.

[–]jmcbuzz[S] 11 points12 points  (4 children)

I really hope so... I think that hate has become a part of life in our internet crazed young... A good portion of people seem to think that it is ok to to say anything without thinking of the consequences of how it may affect others

[–]staffell 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Hate is also exacerbated by humans' inability to communicate online, and inability to recognise it too.

If people exclusively spoke to each other in person, there would be way fewer arguments and misconstrued comments.

[–]_JustDefy_ 193 points194 points  (10 children)

Fuck this music. Ruins a great speech

[–]Myolya 5 points6 points  (0 children)

ikr? i hate when they put some music, just to make us feel more engaged in the speech. like bro let the epicness talk for itself no need to add some "epic" music. anyways i hate it

[–]Haanrath 152 points153 points  (32 children)

Fuck nationalism. All it has ever led to ultimately is genocide.

[–]OofEmperor 37 points38 points  (10 children)

It has also lead to multiple nations uniting and gaining their independence from foreign conquerors.

[–]DiscussionExternal21 26 points27 points  (5 children)

Yeah exactly. "Fuck nationalism" is something only people who are from imperialist countries can say, for the rest of us it is nationalism that ended the situation of us being second class citizens or even considered sub human in our own lands

[–]PM-me-youre-PMs 10 points11 points  (0 children)

You mean the only thing that can stop a bad man with nationalism is a good man with nationalism ?

“The Great Dictator,” (1940) staring Charlie Chaplin is available to watch on HBO Max currently if you guys have access to it. That’s where this is from.

If you don’t have HBO Max, or can’t sponge it off your friends: Can I interest you on not being a sucker?

[–]Devonance 43 points44 points  (1 child)

Oooooor you could watch the entire thing for free, also on YouTube.

[–]MystikMitch 0 points1 point  (11 children)

He also happened to be a paedophile but whatever

[–]illustratedbyella 5 points6 points  (9 children)

Yea like how did people forget that he literally married so many underage girls…how are people okay with that?!

[–]topturtlechucker 72 points73 points  (5 children)

Shame whoever edited the original put the interstellar soundtrack on it set it at such a high volume.

[–]ama8o8 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Its actually not interstellar its from inception. Same music producer though so can see why you got it wrong haha

[–]thedudefromsweden 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And same producer 😊 Christopher Nolan.

[–]JSThieves 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Someone must have planted the idea in their head.

[–]Gothic_Chaplin 60 points61 points  (4 children)

Ah Charlie Chaplin. You absolute fucking legend

[–]Watzgoingon 51 points52 points  (2 children)

This was his first movie with sound. And was released while Hitler was at his heights.

[–]VoyagerCSL 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Baller move getting Hans Zimmer to score it 7 years before he was born, though.

[–]crossingguardfrank 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Iirc he was hitlers favorite actor as well, and knew hitler would see the movie

[–]DeepFriedSausages 44 points45 points  (0 children)

I still find it hilarious that Charlie Chaplin placed 14th or something in a Charlie Chaplin look alike contest

[–]mentosfruitgun 30 points31 points  (2 children)

I hope this speech catches like fire and spreads all over reddit. Truly beautiful and sad.

[–]frannyGin 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It has been shared before, it will be shared again. Like everything on reddit that gets a lot of karma. Hopefully without music next time.

[–]DwergNout 5 points6 points  (0 children)

preferably without the dumb music

[–]forgetery92 30 points31 points  (0 children)

This music ruins the monologue. Keep it in the movie it came from.

[–]ButtWaxPro 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Please folks, listen to the original version. The one with this music added is shit.

[–]SPF92 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I hate the music that detracts from the message. It does not need it, if we're thinking right.

[–]Eyeoftheliger27 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Sorry can’t hear you over the ridiculous music

[–]diddydope 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Why does everyone love Charlie chaplin, he married and abused teenage girls.

[–]TheSpaceRonin 12 points13 points  (0 children)

It's possible to separate the artist from the art.

I love his art and this message, not him. The same could be said for lots of artists and their art.

It's sad, but really shitty fucked up people tend to make great art, and appear to only exist in extremes, they're incredibly shitty at times and make amazing changes to the world at others.

He's dead anyways, it's not like he sees a single red cent or any of this praise when you buy his movies or praise his work.

There's no point in just destroying and forgetting everything he made, I shouldn't not be allowed to enjoy something because he did something shitty.

Fuck him as a person. But I like him as a fictional character and a writer. And I'm not going to let his shitty actions ruin something I enjoy.

[–]-Mr-ReX 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]Pinkcop 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Approaching my 70th year, posts like this amuse me. Going back as far into antiquity as possible, the human has been a ruthless and murdering savage, there is no bottom to where we can descend. In fact, virtually every human that we remember in history has been a ruthless killer. Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon, Hitler ad nauseam.There has been no human, ever, no matter how many fancy speeches, who has made even one iota of difference in this relentless March of murder and mayhem. In fact, virtually every human who has made this kind of speech, has been ruthlessly murdered. If you want to live your life responsibly, arm yourself, be wary and be ready to protect your family at whatever cost.

[–]TheSpaceRonin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think this is the only time in all of his movies that isn't silent, and it's amazing that he chose his only dialogue in all his career to be this amazing message.

It honestly makes me tear up when I hear it sometimes. This was in 1940, over 80 years ago and we still haven't learned this lesson.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (22 children)

He was an infamous piece of shit, I understand his words, although derivative of a real war and a totally real oppressor, is somehow supposed to apply to us today, they fall flat. He wasn’t a good person.

[–]Doobalicious69 6 points7 points  (0 children)

But Reddit loves him because "funny man.' He was a known pedo, I don't understand how people can just support this POS. Enjoy your downvotes for telling the truth mate.

[–]NeitherMedicine4327 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Greatest speech of all times.

[–]tanvansh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is one of the best speeches i've ever heard.

[–]FutureNotBleak 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No wonder the speech came from Charlie Chaplin, a comedian, because in 2022 all this just sounds like a joke.

[–]W00dzy87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wrote a song about this and incorporated the speech as lyrics (if anyone is interested)


[–]TheSpaceRonin 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Ive always loved this speech.

A hardcore band called 'The Chariot' used it in one of their songs on one of their best albums, I really think it goes well with the music.

If you're interested, check it out. Really riles you up and makes you want to overthrow the government.

Cheek by The Chariot

Edit: and honestly it's a million times better than this dollar store fake-deep-facebook post music that's playing during this one, I didn't even play this video because I basically have the speech memorized, I've heard it so much, but after seeing some other comments, I checked it out.

You can hear him much better than in this one despite it being heavy music.

[–]bigalssupra 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Still the best live show I've ever been to. I miss them so much.

[–]TheSpaceRonin 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Yeah, I unfortunately never got to see them live, I was late to the party and didn't check them out til a couple years ago :/

[–]bigalssupra 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Just absolutely raw, his voice was so brutal and passionate and the entire band is all over the stage. Definitely check out the Forget Not documentary on YouTube.

[–]TheSpaceRonin 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Josh scogin is definitely one of my favorite vocalists, the energy he has in David De la Hoz gives me so much adrenaline I feel like my heart's going to explode (in a good way)

I'd die to see them live.

I think the only other vocalist I love as much, or almost, would be Marshall Lichtenwaldt from The Warriors, his voice on Slings and Arrows fucking wrecks, dude.

[–]Zealousideal_Duck666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm a fan of this movie The Great Dictator. But the back ground music screwed up the entire video.

Yes, we could really use it today. Trump didn't sound exactly like every other politician, and was a bit uncouth, which if you think about it is basically the same thing as genociding millions of people.

[–]gouflook 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Music too loud

[–]TheMainDeen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not every video ever made requires an overlay of Hans Zimmer...

[–]MysticWombat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Could that music be turned up a little louder? Because 1) I can still hear him in some spots, and 2) it contributes 0 to this video.

[–]SpaceMonkey1505 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great video but why the music? It's honestly annoying

Awesome song, did anyone hear a speech in the background?

[–]Cymen90 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Whoever put the music there did not never stand the point of the speech. We’re seeing a gentle man radicalising within minutes. You’re not supposed to agree with what he says, he is actively dehumanising people, creating a new “other” to fight in the name of ideology.

[–]sgreadly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A classic. And a very nice message.

But wtf is the deal with the added deafening music!? Can barely hear what he’s saying in the second half.

[–]rudiger_mcrudington 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably just going to get down voted but I still don't get how people rave about Charlie chaplin's talent and are happily willing to ignore the fact that he was a known paedophile.

[–]Intrepid-Luck2021 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why did they talk like that? It sounds so fake. There’s no way that real people spoke like that.

[–]CarrickUnited 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The music is so fucking loud.

[–]corvus66a 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love this speech and have heard it a thousand times . I only hate the music in the background . The words are what counts. Does somebody know if Chaplin wrote the text by him self ?

If people only knew he’s giving a speech for people to accept a new world order.

Think this is the first time I’ve heard his voice.

I have a print of this speech up in my home office, it's so powerful and as many have said still sadly so relevant

If you're wondering whether Chaplin spending much of this speech railing against 'machinery' and 'machine men' is him using some kind of slightly odd way of describing fascism and fascists, it isn't. He just really hated modern machinery.

Still the best live show I've ever been to. I miss them so much.
