How in the world did this happen? Short answer: It didn't. The false story started when a single blogger noticed that Hitler's biography/hate manifesto was a "Top Book" for both Apple and Amazon, which clearly meant masses of people were secretly reading it in their tablets like it's Fifty Shades of Grey.
But rather than hiding your boner, you have to resist the impulse to do a heil Hitler.
This evolved into a shitstorm of speculation for Hitler's comeback success, with some suggesting it was all "neo-Nazis and skinheads." What everyone was forgetting was that those "Top Books" lists are specifically made to get you to see random shit that no one is buying -- when the story broke, Mein Kampf was actually ranking between 7,000 and 9,000 on Amazon, which means about 10 books sold per day.
... and we say "when the story broke" because all this Hitler talk actually shot the Fuhrer up to No. 2 and No. 4:
Yay! Nice teamwork, America!
