There Are NO Good Reasons to Attend a Nazi Gathering. None. Period.

What would you say if I told you an Indiana lawyer who is currently running for Congress on the Republican ticket gave a speech Sunday at a Nazi gathering in celebration of Hitler’s birthday on the topic of the subjugation of white women at the hands of Jews in the porn industry?

Would you balk? Would you roll your eyes and think I’d finally lost my left-wing marbles?

Regardless of your answer, it would behoove you to have a look for yourself. Here’s another source. And another.

Yes, Tony Zirkle is a name you’re going to hear a lot of in coming weeks (though you may already know him as the guy who wants to bring back segregation of blacks). You’re going to hear all about how he spoke at such a gathering only because he wants to speak to any who will listen. You’re going to hear right-wingers defend him as someone who is willing to break the barriers of hate to get his message out. You’re going to be expected to believe that just because he shredded a rare copy of Playboy (for which he paid a reported $1200) he’s somehow an authority on the porn industry and human sexuality in general.

But mainly, you’re going to have to ask yourself if anything good can come from a man who would happily give an anti-Semitic speech to a bunch of Nazis at a birthday party for Hitler. I mean, I have a lot of things I want to say to the world – good, productive things – but I have absolutely no desire to say anything to Nazi shitheads.

There was a time when an American politician having any association whatsoever with Nazism would have deftly ended that politician’s career. It would seem that ever since we learned of the Bush family’s connection to that selfsame fascist organization, it’s become all the rage to buddy up to them. Lovely.

But do continue to be suspicious of anyone wearing a turban. You never know when a humble Sikh is going to smile at you too widely!

    WTF. No. Really. What.The.Fuck.
    I have no words for this. I can't even believe. Because I don't want to, not because I don't think it happened.
    As for the turbans, right after 9-11 a 'patriotic' freak shot and killed a local business owner out in front of his convenience store. Why? Because he was wearing a turban. Yep, business owner was a Sikh, a kind man well-loved in his neighborhood community.

    Sickening. I respect fringe groups' rights to be insane (provided they don't hurt anyone else, of course), but to have a congressional candidate speak beneath a portrait of Hitler? That's just vile. Jeezus, at least try and hide that you're a whacknut.

    "Sickening… just vile."I feel the need to mention that I had a very difficult time uploading that photo to my VOX. It's just so sick. But I felt that the post might not get the same viewings if I didn't put enough Shock Value into it. I wanted a more shocking title, too, but didn't want to spend any more time trying to get clever with the word "Nazi".USA Today reports that "Zirkle received 30% of the primary vote in 2006, according to the Secretary of State." Almost 1/3 of the vote! I can't wait to hear the right-wing apologies for this one. Should be entertaining.

    Something quite surreal about the photo of old Adie there and the Nazi flags and then the cheesy "Happy Birthday" valance. I'm picturing skinheads in the aisles at the local iParty. Kind of makes them seem a little less….. supreme.

    Doesn't surprise me in the least. The modern conservative party in America, today's republican party, is based on the thinking and writings of William F. Buckley, a known anti-semite, racist and women hater. (FYI, Dick Cheny voted against the ERA in the mid-70s, repeatedly). This is a party based on hate. Anyone who thinks or argues differently is delusional and spends way too much time getting their information from drug addled shit heels like Rush Limbaugh or nasty little elves who couldn't get a date in high school like Karl Rove.

    Just wondering if the mob who had so much to say about Obama's relationship with his pastor will have anything to say about this fuckwit who aspires to the same Republican Party ideals as McCain does.

  7. Kzinti says:

    Damn! I'm gonna kill my high school guidance counselor. How come those Jews get all the good jobs like subjugating white women in the porn industry? Crap.
    (just kidding, really! LOL)

    why am I not shocked

    I believe it. Completely. No matter how devoutly we try to mop up, it will not clean up all of society's slimy corners and rancid stenches. People will always spout, and fools will always listen.
    I know that there is free speech, and that it's a gift to all of us; but if I had the power, I wouldn't think twice about shutting those goofballs down.

  10. Brown Suga' says:

    Oh, there IS a good reason to attend a Nazi gathering – to beat the crap out of all of them.

  11. Jenni says:

    What are we? Nazis! What are we gonna focus on? Porn!

    I'm sorry but that's just hilarious to me in some way. Oh lord.

  12. CrowSeer says:

    I think he was just sad that he didn't have a Wikipedia page yet, and thought "This'll make them notice me!" Or maybe he's addicted to frosting?

  13. Indiana says:

    The guy is a fringe lunatic, the GOP has tried to get him removed from the ballet in two previous elections and all of the GOP leaders in Indiana have spoke against him, I dont know what else you expect them to do. The guy can call himself whatever he wants but he was never and has never been accepted as one of thier own in the Indiana Republican party. The only reason he did as well as he did in 2006 was because he went hard and heavy after child molesters during a time when Indiana had a cover story of a child kidnapping molestation case. It did him lots of good in his district to say child predators should be guillotined.

  14. MoonCat says:

    I think I just just threw up into my mouth a little. Seriously.

  15. Kirk says:

    Indiana, you have no idea how happy I am to hear that. I honestly can't believe anyone would address Nazis and then expect anyone to give them any support whatsoever. I couldn't believe that 30% number; thanks much for clarifying. Good to hear it straight from someone who lives there.

  16. BadMojo says:

    Wow. Just…wow. When I was in D.C. last weekend we saw HOARDS of police and armored cops out around the Washinton Monument where apparently there was some Neo-Nazi support rally. I just don't get how people can still subscribe to that bullshit after so long…

  17. paikea says:

    ick – just – ickon the bright side – the very same right that gives them the ability to do stuff like this, give us the right to very publicly call them "shitheads"

  18. Indiana says:

    It keeps going from generation to generation, this is a good example of why it never dies out like it should, those girls were raised to be racist and more then likely will raise their children the exact same way. I believe in free speech and parents rights, but sometimes when i read about kids like that I have to wonder if we are carrying this free speech just a little to far at least when it comes to kids. Its bad enough when its adults but there is just something that turns your stomach and makes you feel sick when you see or hear a kid saying those same things.
