Why is This GOP House Candidate Dressed as a Nazi? [Atlantic]

Possible addition to the list: Carl Paladino as any muppet you want. Ref: this.

Being somewhat familiar with German WW2 unis and a spoilsport, Colonel Klink was actually Luftwaffe. Major Hochstetter would be more appropriate.


In my own travels through military history dorkdom, I noticed that there is more than a slight correlation between the depth of one’s fetish for Nazzi shit and their politics which lean heavily towards the right.

One last thing, after the Malmedy Massacre during the early stages of the Battle of the Bulge where troops from SS Group Peiper shot down over a hundred US POWs that US forces retaliated in kind to captured SS troops something Canada City troops were very familiar with after similar atrocities in Normandy.

Of course, the unit Iott “reenacts” for fought the Russians specifically and was a quisling unit as it was formed by foreign nationals… sort of like the SS equivalent of the French Foreign Legion minus the Beau Geste stuff.

I’m surrounded by swastikas, have been since January, and they never fail to distract me.

@ManchuCandidate: I have a Pennsyltucky relative who still plays dress up, well into his 70s. For purely historical reasons, of course.

Navajos and Hopis also used the swastika in their art. The example below if a detail of the KiMo Theater in Albuquerque, built in the Pueblo Deco style with images inspired by Southwestern Indian art.


@ManchuCandidate: I would add the fetish for Confederate shit to your fetish for Nazzi shit. Neither of which ever indicate the people involved have anything but the utmost respect for people who can’t trace their lineage back to pure Aryan roots.

@redmanlaw: Dude, does that mean ole Cristobal Colon wasn’t so far off in thinking he had discovered “India”? The Sinhala of the Teardrop Island consider themselves Aryan [caution: mild ethno-racism follows the linque].

T/J: I’m going to get a visa to visit China today. There is no box on the form for “Are You A Jewish Male Fascinated By Asian Women.” I guess they just assume it. They should drop a footnote: “And our cuisine is way better than yours.”

@Dodgerblue: I ordered a “pork chop” from the menu of a nice cafe/restaurant on the way from our hotel to the Forbidden City. I was served, and proceeded to consume, a half pound slab of pork fat. There wasn’t a piece of “meat” in the whole thing, but I was raised to finish what was on my plate, so I did. I felt like I was going to give birth by the time we got to Tianmen Square.

Culinary stop signs aside, make sure you see the *real* Peking Opera. It lasts a couple of hours, but is definitely worth it. We took our two year old, and even he liked it.

@Nabisco: The “History” Channel had one of their now prevalent junk science shows on in which some deluded cat from the Central Band of Cherokees or whatever was saying that his tribe was descended from the Jews. They took the DNA swab test and they are basically white people.

/sad trombone noise

Maybe those people once were Indians and intermarried to the point that their “blood quantum,” as it’s called, was greatly reduced.

The Nozzies also spent some time over in the Himalayas looking for the origins of the Aryan people, measuring skulls and all that shit.

I think bill maher mentioned something about this fool friday. here’s more on herr dressinuplikeageekenheimer:
I wanna play dressup too. I think I’ll be a russian soldier in early 1945 and play house with the Iotts, especially the frauliens.

many right wing nuts still think hitler was a genius. do they realize that the genius invaded russia and declared war on america in the same year, while letting a morphine junkie run his air force and at the same time dismissed aerial naval power by saying : “italy is my aircraft carrier”.

@al2o3cr and Tommmcatt Thinks Masturbation Can Also Involve The Mainstream Media: That’s an insult to muppets. Appropriate but disgusting that the article on the NYT about Paldino’s hatefest of the gheys was right next to the article about the horrific torture and assault of the three gay men in the Bronx. I guess the H8ers just don’t see the connection.

Rich Idiot is the greatest candidate name evah.

@jwmcsame: These people would be amazed to learn how Hitler financed the Third Reich. You talk about deficit spending! He was going to pay for it on the back of the Slavs. Didn’t work out too well.

@Tommmcatt Thinks Masturbation Can Also Involve The Mainstream Media: On the guys, is it sideways?
