Please, Folks, Make Fun of the Nazis
What do call twelve guys getting together on the Capitol steps to lash out at Jews, minorities and immigrants? A Nazi 'Party'. Get it? Party? Nevermind:
Hundreds of demonstrators sang, danced and traded insults Monday with a small group of neo-Nazis who gathered on the Capitol steps in the third such rally this year in this liberal college town.
About 12 members of the National Socialist Movement stood in a row outside the Capitol, wearing their signature brown shirts, red swastika armbands and black boots.
They held aloft two swastika flags and railed against gays, Jews, non-whites and communists over a public address system.
The group, which is based in Minneapolis and claims chapters around the country, said it hoped to draw attention and find new recruits with the rally.
"We're going to come with more storm troopers every year, and every month we're going to double in size," Seattle-area neo-Nazi Justin Boyer told the crowd.
Similar National Socialist Movement demonstrations have turned violent elsewhere in the country, but the State Patrol reported no arrests or incidents during the rally and protests, which lasted about two hours.
It brings to mind the quote by Edmund Burke:
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
So the next time the these idiots come to town, do what you can to show them how we feel.
