A man named Adolf Hitler Uunona has won a local election in Namibia with 85 percent of the vote, becoming a councilor in the Ompundja Constituency.
According to the Electoral Commission of Namibia, Uunona claimed a seat for the South West Africa People’s Organization, also known as the SWAPO party, after racking up 1,196 votes last month.

Uunona has no connection to his unusual namesake — but does have a sense of humor about the situation. He is not “striving for world domination” and does not have plans to “conquer” the Oshana region, he told German newspaper Bild.
On the official candidates list, the name Hitler was reduced to an initial, with the document reading: Adolf H. Uunona, although the results page listed Uunona’s name in full.

After Uunona’s landslide victory, the term “Adolf Hitler” became a top Twitter trend Thursday, as people around the world discussed his name.


“Of course, 2020 would not be complete if Adolf Hitler didn’t win an election with 85% of the vote,” one Twitter user wrote, and others asked: “Is that his real name?”




In his interview with Bild, Uunona said that his father had named him after the Nazi dictator but “probably didn’t understand what Adolf Hitler stood for.” His wife, he said, calls him Adolf.




Ahead of the November regional vote, Electoral Commission Chairwoman Notemba Tjipueja urged people to exercise their democratic right and cast their ballots “in large numbers.” Uunona’s political opponent Mumbala Abner of the Independent Patriots for Change party received 213 votes.
The southwestern African country is a former German colony, and a number of streets and places still have German names.




In August, the country rejected a German offer of compensation for the slaughter of tens of thousands of Herero and Nama peoples at the hands of German colonial forces between 1904 and 1908. An estimated 80,000 people are believed to have been killed by troops, which Germany has since called a “terrible crime.”


Namibian President Hage Geingob said at the time that the offer was “not acceptable” and would need to be “revised,” the Guardian reported.

A black guy being named after Hitler is actually a great troll of Hitler.

You realize Hitler didn't like blacks either, right?  I don't think you're getting the whole Aryan race thing.

I have a Jewish friend who disagrees, and has even been called the N word by a black musician as a sign of respect.

There was a movie about the later Ebony editor Hans-Jürgen Massaquoi, if that's ever released or shown in the US I can recommend it. It's about the son of an African consul and a German mother. The kid was born around 1925 and his father wasn't present, and the movie is about his teenage years...

(checking the internet, it might be subtitled as "Growing up black in Nazi Germany" on Youtube, but it's geoblocked for me)

Okay, so if the next PM of Israel is named Ja'Vonte, would that be trolling white supremacists too?

Are you sure about that?

Exactly. The only reason the Fuhrer didn't shake Jesse's hand was because he was on a tight schedule. Adi treated Owens better than Comrade Roosevelt did.
