High School Kids Give Holocaust The Respect It Merits: Nazi V. Jews Beer Pong

Some high school children have some Jews very very angry (for a change; lol Jews, right?) with their classy reenactment of the Holocaust, via Beer Pong (above). Note how much harder it would be to get one’s ball into the Nazi cups, as they are not clustered together as are the Jews’; this reflects with historical accuracy the advantage the Nazis had, probably because, as in Joe the Plumber’s totally smrt analysis, the Jews did not have guns and definitely not because Jews were a tiny tiny minority beset on all sides by a populace that had been trained to consider them subhuman vermin. Oy gevalt! Read more on High School Kids Give Holocaust The Respect It Merits: Nazi V. Jews Beer Pong…

George Zimmerman Is Your New Anne Frank

These days George Zimmerman is taking a cue from all those people comparing themselves to Gandhi, and Mandela, and Rosa Parks. Almost (actually, not “almost”) to a man, those people were in fact fighting for the opposite of what Gandhi, and Mandela, and Rosa Parks were fighting for! (It was pretty funny, except for how it was dumb.) Realizing he could live (quite nicely) in Opposite Land, Zimmerman has reframed himself not as a person who victimizes anyone weaker in his path — a teenage boy (at least when Zimmy has a gun), a woman (at least when Zimmy has a gun), another woman (at least when Zimmy has a gun….) — but as the ultimate victim. Poor George, everyone is always out to get him. And that is why he is just like Anne Frank. Read more on George Zimmerman Is Your New Anne Frank…

GOP Rep: Student Loans Will Lead To A Holocaust Run By German-Americans, Obviously

Way out in the western part of the great state of Maryland is a mountainous land that is mostly rural and white and working class, more Winter’s Bone than The Wire. This corner of the state has been represented approximately forever by Roscoe Bartlett, an 86-year-old Republican who has something of a reputation of being “one of the sane ones” on that side of the aisle. But ol’ Roscoe is in a tough re-election fight this year, so he’s had to maybe pander a little bit, to improve his poll numbers. Like, telling your constituents at a town hall meeting that federally subsidized student loans will basically lead to a new Holocaust, a Holocaust perpetrated by the millions of German-Americans who are just lurking among us, just waiting for their orders from their dead Nazi overlords to rise up and slaughter the Jews — that’s what they want to hear, right? That’ll get votes? Read more on GOP Rep: Student Loans Will Lead To A Holocaust Run By German-Americans, Obviously…

Joe The Plumber Has Brilliant Analysis Of What Caused The Holocaust

What caused the Holocaust? (Or per Business Insider, “Why are the sources of anti-Semitism?”) Well, you could be boring about it and point to the rich vein of anti-Semitism going back to the Middle Ages in those parts of Bavaria where Hitler was strongest, and add in his need for an “other” to blame for Germany’s terrible economic situation after the Treaty of Versailles. But what are you, in grad school? Nope, much better to just go online and see what the militia folks are saying, like “Joe” the “Plumber” did! Mr. The Plumber, who apparently would like some more attention, please, has a new ad out that explains that gun control caused both the Holocaust and the Armenian genocide. That is some First Class trolling there, Joe, but you forgot one tiny, teeny thing: Read more on Joe The Plumber Has Brilliant Analysis Of What Caused The Holocaust…

Your Morning Braintrust: Of Course Those Gays Should Be In The Pen So No More Gay Babies Can Be Born

Towleroad, having brought us the original “let’s round up the queers and put them behind an electric fence until they die,” follows up with this extraordinarily delightful video of Anderson Cooper — hmmmm! — explaining to this mean dumb cow about where gay babies come from, and also The Holocaust. She ain’t changin’ her mind, she knows what she is tryin’ to say, and that is … oh, nonsense. It is the most deliriously meanspirited and ignorant and meth-brained shit you will hear for some time, and it just might make your whole day.

Grover Norquist: Why Are All These Democrat Nazis Holocausting Poor Billionaire Eduardo Saverin?

Poor Eduardo Saverin! All he wanted to do was renounce his American citizenship, coincidentally shortly before a big honkin’ tax bill came due from his Facebook public offering or something (we don’t know, it was all the news there was on Friday, which brought our cherished Internet to a dumb screeching halt). And then mean old New York Senator Chuck Schumer targeted him with the delightful Ex-PATRIOT Act, which would ding poor Mr. Severin for 30 percent of his income! That is double the rate that is supposed to be paid by the wealthy, as a reward for them creating your jobs. (You do all work in yacht sales, right? Or yacht construction, or yacht redecorating, or yacht skippering, or yacht insurance fraud?) And doubling the tax rate, so that it is equal to what your slob brother-in-law pays on his unemployment check? That is punishing them for their success! Everybody knows that! But did you also know it’s what the NAZIS did? That’s right, anti-tax hero Grover Norquist says this Ex-PATRIOT bill is the worst thing since the Holocaust, and we know six million Jews who would totally agree!

Taste The Righteous Rage

By the Comics CurmudgeonUsually your Comics Curmudgeon approaches his work with a certain lightness of heart. But today is not such a day. Today is a day in which cartoons will be angrily berated for their various failings. Today is the day of wrath, the one foretold by the prophets of ancient times. LET US BEGIN.

The POLITICO Guide To Grammar & Genocide: A Practical Holocaust Compendium

Oh my god, truly terrible publication The POLITICO has created a H/holocaust style guide. Like an actual collection of words published on politico.com that serve to outline when it is okay to invoke lower case-h holocaust and when it is okay to go all WWII insidery and just GO FOR IT and use the capital H. “When is a holocaust not the Holocaust?” is the actual lede of this non-specific genocide of an article.
