NOT ALL REPUBLICANS ARE NAZIS-- NOT EVEN ALL INDIANA REPUBLICANS
Indiana GOP candidate pledges allegiance to his hero
It would be unfair to tar all Republicans as Nazis. I fondly remember NY Republican Senator Jacob Javits when I was growing up. And John Lindsey was a decent Republican even before he switched parties and became a Democrat. And... I'm sure there are some other decent Republicans, though none seem to show up on TV. Instead we get a steady stream of lunatic fringe thugs like O'Reilly, Hannity, Marsha Blackburn, James Inhofe, and John Cornyn. But if you're a Nazi or a fascist and you want to get involved in politics, chances are you know exactly where your ideas will be taken seriously-- the G.O.P.
Let's take a look at some recent events in Indiana's second congressional district. In 2006 reactionary Democrat Joe Donnelly beat right wing extremist Chris Chocola (54-46%), and then went on to create a record of voting more frequently to rubber stamp the Bush agenda than any other Democrat except 3 truly wretched Dixiecrats-- Jim Marshall (GA), Nick Lampson (TX) and John Barrow (GA). Chocola says Donnelly still isn't far right enough and he's trying to get the seat back. But someone even further right than Donnelly or Chocola-- over the edge attorney Tony Zirkle-- doesn't think either of them is far enough right and he's engaged in a vicious primary battle with Chocola.
So in pursuit of his goal of being the next congressman to represent IN-02 Zirkle chose Hitler's birthday to address a Nazi Party meeting in Chicago. I think Bush and Cheney and McCain should say where they stand on their party's candidate addressing the Nazi faithful. I know, I know... McCain says he doesn't always agree with all the ideas of the people who endorse him. He just likes Zirkle's other ideas, the ones about Jews and African-Americans screwing young white Christian girls in porn films; that's Zirkle's real passion and what has driven him insane and into Republican politics. I thought you might enjoy watching the video of the Republican standing in front of a picture of Hitler on his birthday and making a speech to a roomful of Nazis. In defense of Zirkle, he says he'll speak to any group, not just Nazis. "I'll speak before any group that invites me," Zirkle said Monday. "I've spoken on an African-American radio station in Atlanta." Imagine that! If you've never heard an anti-semite babbling a bunch of vicious anti-semitism, I bet you'll be shocked by this video:
