I just went back to the American Nazi Party website to see if they were putting out another clarion call for even MORE ‘Nazis’ to Occupy Wall Street.
Seriously, what’s an OCCUPATION of Wall Street if you can’t have some of your Big-Labor-Union-supported-Nazi brothers and sisters over for a nice relaxing overthrow of the United States Economy?
I figured that stopping back at their site was a good idea since things have gotten ‘more interesting’ since we last visited the OWS supporters. I was NOT disappointed. Although it was ‘more interesting’ than I imagined that it would be… And, quite a bit more – surreal.
I haven’t stopped back at the Communist Party USA site as yet, between you and me, the ANP site home page was enough of a shock for today – thanks.
The two groups above have both received moral support from President Obama, Vice-President Biden, and Nancy Pelosi and financial support from Liberal Activist / Anarchist Groups nationwide.
Our friendly Wall Street Occupiers have continued to live up to society’s expectations of them.
Well, what I actually mean is:
They continue to stink up the place (but I hear the drug sales are way ahead of expectations!)
Unfortunately, thefts and assaults are also UP at the OWS protest, hmmm, maybe due to a lack of Police Officers? Hey! We’d better pass that Jobs’ Bill now – right VP Biden?!?! Nice goin’ “Plugs”. Sit down before you hurt yourself…
Certainly it couldn’t be the quality of the participants that has created the criminal environment, right?
Hey, Liberal Moms and Dads, bring the kiddies! I hear they’re having organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad tonight — Yumm-O!!!
Anyway, we last visited these folks in the post entitled, “Fringe”. So what the heck, it’s been a week, let’s go back and see what the ANP is up to now!
And no, I’m not making this up (see screen shot above, which begins this post)…
Yes, nothing says “It’s Baby Jesus’ Birthday Party!!!” like putting on your best ‘Nazi’ attire, oiling your weapons, singing ‘Aryan Carols’, and Goosestepping into the 2011 Holiday season with a few hundred of your closest Nazi Friends!
The following two photos were found on LIFE.com, both depicting Hitler’s Christmas Party in Munich, December 18, 1941:
|Gunther: “Hey, Heinrich, wasn’t Jesus, a, a, um, Je…”
Heinrich: “Shut up, or the boss is gonna KILL you.”

On second thought, where’s Gunther?”
A Nazi Christmas, December 18, 1941
So, I guess REAL Nazis celebrate the birth of the Man who was called, “The King Of the Jews”? Perhaps back then, they thought Christmas meant something else? Maybe they were the first folks attempting to take the ‘Christ’ out of ‘Christmas’?
Time for a little research – yeah, you know it’s not my favorite thing, but I don’t like mowing the lawn either, but it must be done.
Here are excerpts from an article found on the DailyMailOnline.com which discusses Christmas in Germany under Nazi-rule:
Nazi Germany celebrated Christmas without Christ with the help of swastika tree baubles, ‘Germanic’ cookies and a host of manufactured traditions, a new exhibition has shown.
The way the celebration was gradually taken over and exploited for propaganda purposes by Hitler’s Nazis is detailed in a new exhibition.
Rita Breuer has spent years scouring flea markets for old German Christmas ornaments.
She and her daughter Judith developed a fascination with the way Christmas was used by the atheist Nazis, who tried to turn it into a pagan winter solstice celebration.
Selected objects from the family’s enormous collection have gone on show at the National Socialism Documentation Centre in Cologne.
‘Christmas was a provocation for the Nazis – after all, the baby Jesus was a Jewish child,’ Judith Breuer told the German newspaper Spiegel. ‘The most important celebration in the year didn’t fit with their racist beliefs so they had to react, by trying to make it less Christian.’
The exhibition includes swastika-shaped cookie-cutters and Christmas tree baubles shaped like Iron Cross medals.
The Nazis attempted to persuade housewives to bake cookies in the shape of swastikas, and they replaced the Christian figure of Saint Nicholas, who traditionally brings German children treats on December 6, with the Norse god Odin.
Civilians were ordered to send Christmas cards to the soldiers at the front. There were also tips on how to make Christmas cookies in the face of food shortages.
In 1944-1945, the Nazis tried to reinvent the festival once again as a day to commemorate the dead, in particular fallen soldiers. ‘By then nobody felt like celebrating,’ Breuer explained.
Happily, the German people mostly ignored the clumsy propaganda efforts and continued with the same traditions as before.
The is a legacy of the Nazi Christmas. The wartime version of the traditional Christmas carol ‘Unto us a time has come’ is still sung. ‘The Nazis took out the references to Jesus and made it into a song about walking through the snow,’ Breuer said.
“Hey Hitler – no snow in Hell little man. Hope you brought your smoking jacket… You’re gonna need it. ‘Cause you be smokin’…”
|Yeah, you’re right, this is wrong on ALL levels|
