The conservative heavy metal musician behind the strange “war on Christmas” video that aired on MSNBC last year released another bizarre clip, this one using graphic Holocaust footage to apparently downplay the idea of global warming.

The video, “Government dictators vs climate change,” opens with a mix of disaster footage and the question, “What has been our greatest threat in the last 100 years?” After more footage, the screen reads, “Total killed by unpredictable climate: over 5 million.”

At that point, the video shifts to footage of Hitler, then footage of Holocaust victims, including a nude woman being dropped into a mass grave, before a rapid-fire collage of not only the Nazi Germany leader, but some of his collaborators and other dictators.

“Total killed by unpredictable men: Over 300 million,” an onscreen message then states. “The equivalent of the entire U.S. population.”

The video concludes with the question, “Ready for Jesus yet?” flashing on the screen, then a person looking toward the White House amid a storm.

Before promoting the video on Twitter, Lee “Rat Skates” Kundrat, who wrote and directed both ads, used similar language in reference to President Barack Obama:

He also referred to himself as a member of the Tea Party in a post celebrating outgoing House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) upset primary loss last month:

Like last year’s ad, the “dictators” clip lists “Msgr. Kennard J. Tuzeneu” as its executive producer and “St. Mary’s At Large,” which is affiliated with St. Mary’s Parish in Barnegat, New Jersey, as the creators.

Watch the video, as posted on Saturday, below.
