Rabbi Altmann and his secretary were sitting in a coffeehouse in Berlin in 1935.

"Herr Altmann," said his secretary, "I notice you're reading Der Sturmer! Why are you doing that? It is nothing but a Nazi libel sheet!"

"On the contrary, Frau Epstein. When I used to read the Jewish papers, all I learned about were pogroms in Russia, Arab riots in the Land of Israel, and assimilation in America. But now that I read Der Sturmer, I read about how the Jews control all the banks, that we dominate in the arts, and that we're on the verge of taking over the entire world. You know - reading Der Sturmer makes me feel a whole lot better!"
