Nazi ideology is being put at risk, not by activists, but instead by science. In a study by the University of New Hampshire, Dr Jessica Ombolo is throwing real doubt that the Nazis have any relationship to the master race.
DNA tests have been a popular criticism of Nazism over the years. However, the previous intention was to show that the Far Right in fact were more ‘ethnically diverse than just their skin color suggests.’ However, Dr Ombolo’s study offers a different approach.
‘Most propose DNA tests because they want to show Nazis they have shared ancestry with people from other places, like Africa for example,’ Dr Ombolo explained.
‘We wanted to be more direct though. Nazis believe they are the master race, so it made more sense to do DNA tests to see if there was any relation. There was not.’
According to science, the real Master Race existed a hundred years ago on a Pacific Island. Largely believed to have left the planet as they were ‘annoyed’ by the other humans that lived there. Many have claimed to be related to them.
Anthropologist, Neil Waters, said the new study was really unnecessary. ‘The Master Race has been well documented to be tall, handsome, intelligent, and generally masterful. You don’t really need to do DNA tests to see these people have no relation.’
However, academics have agreed with both these positions. Jules Terry, a scientific commentator put it simply:
‘It is true that we do not need DNA tests to show the Nazis are not related to the Master Race. But the Nazis don’t seem to get that. Their own reflections do not seem to be proof enough, but maybe DNA tests will help.’
The study was conducted on 300 active Nazis in the United States. Though not one tested positive for Master Race markers, Dr Ombolo said that their reaction to the news was not as positive ‘as hoped.’
‘They just seemed confused and angry. But we gave them ice cream.’
