Indiana's Next Great White Knight

Meet Tony Zirkle.

Zirkle is running for congress in Indiana's 2nd District (South Bend Area). On Sunday he spoke to American National Socialist Workers Party (Illinois Nazis) Where he stood in front of a painting of Hitler with a swastika flag in the background. This wouldn't be such a big deal, except that he got 30% of the vote in the last Republican Primary. However, he was than running against an incumbent and the Republicans gave a damn.

Thinkprogress.org has a video from a WSBU report.

Oh, By the Way. Sunday was Hitler's Birthday.

Oh, for the love of...

DAMNATION.

What's your beef with Nazis?

Mike Lewis said...

Illinois Nazis. I hate Illinois Nazis.

Roscoe said...

Mike understands me. Of course it's a better joke when you say it during Skokie.

_J_ said...

I do not think it problematic for someone to talk to Nazis. Being a Nazi is problematic. Endorsing Nazis is problematic.

But talking to them on Hitler's Birthday? That's simply polite.

Roscoe said...

no.. being a handful of miles away from a comedy goldmine of tragic proportions?

THAT's the crime, here.

Have you never seen Blues Brothers?

It's as if you are so ignorant to the deeply embedded joke that you don't even take notice that it is being mentioned.

Kyle is a man of wisdom. Listen to Kyle, J.

Listen to Kyle and go watch Blues Brothers.

If not for him, then for Cab Calloway.
