Hitler’s rants, once instilling fear, have become a source of humor in today’s world. Overdubs of his shrieks have been used to make fun of Obamacare, Sen. Ted Cruz and more.

But YouTube believes that one such parody, using Hitler’s voice and the image of anti-gun activist and student David Hogg at last weekend’s anti-gun rally in Washington, could be a problem.

On its site, it has posted the warning, “The following content has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.”

People must click “I understand and wish to proceed” to view it.

Here it is:

Liberty Headlines explains the parody was posted by “MAGA3D,” who converted the footage of Hogg’s speech in D.C. “into a black-and-white grainy imagery, with the sound of a 1930s-era film projector in the background, and the impassioned speech of the German fuhrer roughly matching up to Hogg’s lip movements.”

The report noted “much harsher and edgier content is all over YouTube without such warnings.”

TMZ reported Hogg had been rejected by the four University of California campuses where he submitted applications – UCLA, UCSD, UCSB and UC Irvine.

He’s complained that “amazing people don’t get into college.”

But he said he’s busy “changing the world” so he won’t let a little rejection get him down.

WND has reported several times on YouTube parodies that rewrite the subtitles in the Hitler-rant scene from the 2004 German-language movie “Downfall,” which recounts the Nazi dictator’s final days in his Berlin bunker.

One had Hitler ranting about Obamacare and another about Mitt Romney’s defeat in 2012. (Warning: Some of the videos contain language that may be offensive to some readers.)

Another Hitler parody has him planning to interrupt Obama’s State of the Union speech:

There also was the one in which Hitler’s health care coverage was canceled:
