"Swastika on the ballot": American Nazi Party lobbyist registers in Washington

File this under Scary. Also, Things People Are Not Sufficiently Outraged About. Apparently on Tuesday, a new Washington lobbyist registered under the American Nazi Party. That's right, the Nazis now have a lobbyist in Washington. You know, the guys who openly hate Jews and gays? Wow.

The lobbyist, John Bowles, a 2008 "other" party presidential candidate said, “You know, congressmen and congresswomen have always been telling the American public that they were open to other viewpoints; I’m going to see if they were sincere about that, or I’m going to call their bluff.”

Does this hint at a controversial joke or is the American Nazi Party really gaining steam?

I received a polite email last week when I used the term "Nazi mom" to describe take-no-crap parenting. A reader was sensitive to the Nazi reference due to the atrocities his family suffered during the holocaust. I defended myself by saying the more we chastise Nazis by using their name in stupid context, the more any respect they still conjure is chipped away. See also: Soup Nazi, Grammar Nazi.

I take it back, reader John. If this is some kind of high-concept joke playing out on Capitol Hill I fail to see the humor. Having been to Dachau myself and having the horrible experience of walking on human ashes, I can't tolerate this.

So. Is this Swastika lobbyist just making a point, or could this be real?

The racial divide of the Trayvon Martin case, the Mommy Wars and now this? It appears hate is making a come back. Crap. And it just started being okay to admit I was German.

PS- It took something of this magnitude to break my blogging strike. I'm baaaaack!

UPDATE - While we're on the topic, I shall introduce the Hitler Fish via The Daily Mail. Der Fishler?

    Is this any different than the Racist Congressional Black Caucus or the socialist Congressional Progressive Caucus?

  • In reply to Harry Ball:

    The Nazis were responsible for the death of six million Jews and spurred a world war and are a declared hate group.

    Oh, now this blog attracts Nazi sympathizers. Why does this not surprise me?

  • Unfortunately, this is what it has become. Unfortunate, too, is that there is a new anti-semite wave that is floating through the media and intellectuals of this country and the world.

    The world needs a scapegoat for its social and economic problems, so why not those money-grubbing Jews, dirty rich bankers and shylock traders that they are? Oh, yes, look for the Elders of Zion sequel in movie form from self-loathing freaks in Hollywood.

    I don't know for sure, but there are probably lobbyists for the Communist Party as well, no slouches when it comes to mass killing, torture and enslavement.

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    Even if there was a communist party lobbyist, that wouldn't be giving attention to a declared hate group. You may not agree with communism but the key difference between other anti-government groups and the Nazi party is the targeting of individuals based on their ethnicity, religious affiliation and/or sexuality.

    I'm not saying this to be popular, I'm saying it to be right: What makes a person who they are is their actions, not their ethnicity, gender, skin color or length of toenails.

  • You suppose the Communists were not singling out people of different ethnic backgrounds, religion-in-general and/or sexuality?

    The Communisty Party USA is still around, and could very well form a lobbying group. They hate with the same force as their brothers the Nazi Party. Both espouse fascism.

    There are no Communist lobbyists at this point, but there are a number of socialist lobbying groups in DC.

    The Nazi Party is the National Socialist Party. Its rise in profile probably has to do with what I mentioned. Scratch an intellectual or Hollywood actor and you have an anti-semite. Sometimes they are too stupid to know it, but they are then the "useful idiots".

    Pay attention to the Jewish slurs, overt and covert, that come from the media and popular spokes people, such as Jesse "Hymie Town" Jackson. We won't even go into the slurs and insults directed against Christians and the Catholic Church, a favorite target of fascists from Hitler to Mao.

    Glad your eyes are open. Might make a better world for your children.

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    I'm interested in finding more examples of anti-Semitism in the media. If it's on the rise, as opposed to having always bubbled way under the surface by extremists, that's very sad indeed. It suggests this lobbyist will be taken seriously. Man. Scary times.

  • Jenna,

    Just watch and listen closely for the anti-Semitic rhetoric.

    . Much of it has to do with positions taken on the Middle East and, now, lately, with what is going on with world finance. Six million died and no lessens were learned by the world. The world still scapegoats. And the world will act exactly the same when the pogroms start again.

  • I hate hate! Thanks for writing about this!

    And I love love! Thanks for reading!

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

  • In reply to Mike Rudy:

    "Everyone" says the solution to the race problem is for "only whites" to intermarry with non-whites?

    1. If this is a white-only solution then who are these non-whites they are supposed to marry and

    2. I have never heard this solution, let alone from "everyone".

    I can't decide if I'm going to hide your comment based on racist crap or let you go just to illustrate your ignorance. I'll think about it over tea.

    Hey don't forget Jehovah's Witnesses, they targeted them as well. They wore a purple star in the camps.

    Two things: democracy is available to those we like...and those we don't like. Furthermore, the protected choices (rights) of each individual residing in the United States makes for frequent clashes and, as Chief Justice Roberts stated in the Westboro Baptist Church v Snyder case, a "robust debate." If we restrict the rise of evil such as the American Nazi Party (and they've been around for a LONG time), then we restrict the rise of noble and honorable individuals. As I read the posts, all I can hope is that the American people...person by person...becomes the noble and honorable voices which silence the voices of evil. Get out and vote. Join your caucuses. Become the real lobbyists by keeping in contact with your senators and representatives. Donate to the campaigns of good candidates who hold the Constitution dear to their heart.

  • In reply to mrsu:

    I too am for letting a thousand voices bloom-- whether they are rancid, like the Nazi's, or something the majority would consider "good".

    The only people today seemingly hell-bent on shutting out opposing voices are the rabid progressives/liberals, the so-called torch bearers of the tolerant and compassionate. This because the majority will not "buy" their messages willingly.

    Let Bill Mahr embarrass himself on a daily basis. Let Rush Limbaugh blather on. Like it, listen. Not, change the channel or dial.

    The Nazi's and the Communists and all stripes in between, including the New Black Panthers, are part of the mix of free speech and part of the Republic.

    So far.

  • Those of us on the other side could take that sentence, change one phrase and make just as good use of it.

    "The only people today seemingly hell-bent on shutting out opposing voices are the right wing religious zealots, the so-called torch bearers of the tolerant and compassionate. This because the majority will not "buy" their messages willingly."

    Except I'd probably cross out "tolerant".
