ain't no party like a nazi party

Mr. Hitler Goes To Washington

Schultz! Republicans’ psycho cousin The American Nazi Party (ANP) registered its first lobbyist this week. They grow up so fast! It seems like just yesterday they were destroying the world! John Bowles, das lobbyist, registered Tuesday with House and Senate offices to represent the ANP.

This isn’t your grandfather’s Nazi party. This is a kinder and gentler Nazi party that has real concerns for all hard working, red white and blue loving white Aryan Nazi-Americans, not to be mistaken with that other Nazi party. These are ‘Heartland Nazis.’ John Bowles plans to lobby on “political rights and ballot access laws,” according to the documents.

Herr Bowles was the presidential candidate in the 2008 race for an “other” party, according to Federal Election Commission records. US News noted the “other” party was the National Socialist Movement.

Herr Bowles is not limiting his lobbying ventures, listing several “general lobbying issue areas” on the form he filed. Accounting, agriculture, clean air and water, “civil rights,” health issues, the Constitution, immigration, manufacturing, and retirement are some of the issues that Mr. Bowles plans to address. ‘Equal rights for certain people!’ has been a long remembered motto for the Nazis and will surely complement today’s hip Republican values.

Herr Bowles seemed genuinely puzzled when asked whether he really thinks that any members of Congress or Hill staffers would take a meeting with a Nazi lobbyist.

“I don’t see why not. Of course I won’t approach anybody in Congress unless it’s a very interesting issue or law. I’m going to be very careful about the issues I choose for this.”

It’s unknown if Nazi lobbyists can get an appointment with a Congressman. He should probably say he’s from the Council of Concerned Citizens instead. Mr. Bowles doesn’t care. He sees a brighter tomorrow; one with hope of prosperity, blue skies and everyone marching to the beat of one drum.

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” — Adolf Hitler

“See in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.” — George Bush

      I think the immediate concern is for the safety of Babs Mikulski.

        Thank God Anthony Weiner got out already.

    • wood50

      They might want to look into real history to try to remember what happened the last time the Nazis went against the Commies!

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

      But don't worry, Congresscritters, they only plan to annex you and welcome you into the fold as soon as they can replace your leaders with theirs. Just nobody ask where s Raúl Grijalva and Keith Ellison went.

  • Biel_ze_Bubba

    I want to see him call on the "I know nuttink!" congresscritters.
    Like Eric Cantor. And maybe Allen West. They have so much in common, I feel sure that their minor differences could be overlooked.

  • C_R_Eature

    Let's all ask Allan West just how many Nazi Republicans there are in Congress now. Claim we have a list.

    • Callyson

      Here's a start to that list:

      House:

      Speaker: John Boehner (R)
      Majority Leader: Eric Cantor
      Majority Whip: Kevin McCarthy
      Majority Chief Deputy Whip: Peter Roskam
      Conference Chair: Jeb Hensarling
      Campaign Committee Chairman: Pete Sessions
      Policy Committee Chairman: Tom Price
      Conference Vice-Chair: Cathy McMorris Rodgers
      Conference Secretary: John Carter

      Senate:

      Minority Leader: Mitch McConnell
      Assistant Minority Leader (Minority Whip): Jon Kyl
      Conference Chairman: John Thune
      Policy Committee Chairman: John Barrasso
      Conference Vice Chair: Roy Blunt

      • C_R_Eature

        Thanks. That's a good start, but if we're using Allan West's rationale, then very conservative Republicans by definition must be Nazis.

    • OzoneTom

      I think that it would be quicker to list the ones who are not.

      • C_R_Eature

        WIN.

        Ok, Folks, we're done here!

  • Abbystinence

    How long before SackoShit Santorum registers Bella?

    "Karen and I are life members of the NRA," Santorum said at the NRA's annual meeting in St. Louis, "and we wanted to announce today that I talked to Chris and now Bella is a life member of the NRA too. And I hope it's a long life."
    http://www.buzzfeed.com/rosiegray/rick-santorum-s

    • PubOption

      Since Bella probably has some mental impairment, that move does not sound sensible. Buying the kid a gun would be much worse.

    • Fare la Volpe

      Looks like Bella is our new Tri.gg.

      I fucking hate Republican parents. Their kids are political props, and the sadder their stories the more they treat them like property rather than people.

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

  • Harry_S_Truman

    So the Know-Nothing Nazis are lobbying the Do-Nothing Congress? I guess there's a certain symmetry to that.

    • AlterNewt

      That's a whole lotta nuthin'.

  • Dashboard Buddha

    I blame the Internet. Yes, there are many good things about this here 'net of ours, but this isn't one of them. Before the 'net, if you wanted to pursue a political agenda, it required shoe leather and effort. My ex-wife once ran for office and fuck all, for a state legislator position…man, that was a lot of work. Now, any yahoo with an ax to grind just needs a solid internet connection. I know I'm over-simplifying this, but looking at the kind of headcases that have run for president lately, I can't help but feel that it's too easy for people, who really should be medicated and supervised, to have an effect on policy.

    • The_Trainman

      Dial-up and 14.4 modems only for nazis! That'll learn em.

      • Guppy

        Do you have any idea how long it takes pornographic educational still images to download at 14.4? How will they get access to their Ilsa: She-Wolf of the SS material now?

        (Kids these days…)

        • Dashboard Buddha

          There's the conundrum…given enough high quality pornographic education material, they might breed less often.

        • bagofmice

          Pfft. ASCII pr0n on a 9600 connected to a bbs. Goddamn, autocorrect on my iPad doesn't recognize BBS as an acronym.

          Man don't want to wait for 14.4 porn must not want any porn.

  • Dashboard Buddha

    Meh…give him some of LeBeau's apple strudel and he'll shut up.

  • HeadsIWin

    Nazis in Washington? How is this news?

  • Dashboard Buddha

    Does this mean that Allen West is going to launch his own Operation Barbarossa on House Democrats?

    • real_dc_native

      Given the House Democrat's recent history of political courage it will be more like Austrian than Russia.

  • tessiee

    When you think about it, it's really sort of the inevitable next step for a Republican Party that's been moving so far to the right that nobody fits in it any more. Maybe all the cranks that have been dominating — well, everything — for the past ten years or so will run off to the He-Man Nazi Woman Hater's clubhouse, like they've been wanting to do all along, and we'll have an actual two party system again.

  • http://www.wonkette.com ManchuCandidate

    What's he going to lobby for?

    To make US Army helmets look MORE like the WW2 Wermacht Helmets?
    To put more references to Zyklon-B into immigration legislation?
    To rename Camp David, Wolfsschanze?

    • Guppy

      Like it says in the summary: "political rights and ballot access laws." There should be less of 'em!

      True enough.
      It's going to get worse before it gets better.
      But it will get better, if we find the courage and strength to fight back.

  • CapnFatback

    It's about time. Next they need to work on a Marketing division. I'm not sure if they are aware, but the Nazis seem to have a serious P.R. problem.

    Bowles: I need to make an appointment to see the Congressman.

    Staffer: He could do tomorrow at 3pm.

    Bowles: Excellent. Tomorrow Belongs To Me.

  • Guppy

    Why would a sitting member of Congress agree to meet with a representative from a group our nation fought a long a protracted war against?

    It's not like they're the Sons of Confederate Veterans or anything.

    Speaking of which, just how long is it going to take for us to get rid of using that embarrassing word "Homeland"?

      I agree. It always struck me as kinda … European.

      Department of Keepin' an Eye on Suspicious Looking Characters
      Department of No Probable Cause Needed
      Department of Double Plus No Terror

      • sullivanst

        Shouldn't that last one be "Doubleplus unterror"?

      • Negropolis

        I like the sound of the "Department of Papers Please," myself.

    • Radio福井県

      You're right, it should be called "Fatherland Security." A nice trillion dollar boondoggle thanks to Bush/Cheney that will never be unraveled. Smaller government my ass. Deficits don't matter. You should see the monstrosity Fatherland has built off I-395 going into DC.

    • real_dc_native

      The should just have called it the Ministry of State Security or the Stasi, or Gestapo or KGB and got it over-with.

  • BarackMyWorld

    I'll just go on record and say that I don't care for the Republican/Nazi comparisons a few people are making on this thread.

    That is all.

    • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

      Why?

      • Dudleydidwrong

        Maybe because it is insulting to the Nazis?

        • poorgradstudent

          The Nazis at least did have a coherent ideology…a vile one, mind, but it was coherent.

    Are the Nazis even considered extreme by today's standards? I mean, hasn't the Republican party made clear that they consider the Nazis to be leftists? Wasn't that what Jonah Goldberg's book was all about? So if the Republican party is to the right of the Nazi party, by their own admission, then a willingness to meet with a Nazi lobbyist should be viewed as a willingness to work with relative moderates. Right? Left? Huh? Am I supposed to be goose-stepping?

    • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

    Given how much Nazi ideology was built on the idea of the German Volk, I don't even get what the hell non-German Nazi Parties are supposed to be about. So if they have very little or no German ancestry, are they willing to make THEMSELVES slaves to the real master race? Or is this like the far-right version of people who claim ancestry from a "Cherokee princess" or throw around "Celtic Pride" slogans even though they just have one Irish or Welsh ancestor from the 1700s maybe?
