Great news: OWS now endorsed by both Communist and Nazi Parties

posted at 8:45 am on October 17, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Just yesterday, Barack Obama asserted that Martin Luther King, Jr would have supported the Occupy Movement.  If so, he would have found himself in the midst of some strange bedfellows:

In a move that may redefine the term “strange bedfellows,” the American Nazi Party issued an official endorsement of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement on Sunday afternoon. The announcement put the organization, a self-described “National Socialist” political party, in company with the Socialist Party USA, which explained its own support for the left-wing protesters in a nationwide conference call last Tuesday night, crediting organized labor with the protests’ strength and sophistication to date.

The American Nazi Party is the most politically sophisticated U.S. remnant — but by no means the only one — of white supremacist Adolph Hitler’s murderous 20th century movement. The party calls Hitler’s Mein Kampf “an ideological blueprint for healthy Aryan survival.”

In its statement on Sunday, the Westland, Mich.-based Nazi party wrote that the Occupy Wall Street protests are “TAYLOR [sic] MADE for National Socialists, as well as WN [White Nationalists] who are serious about DOING SOMETHING.”

“I urgently URGE all of you,” the statement’s unnamed author added, “to TAKE PART and JOIN IN when these protests hit your neck of the woods. Produce some flyers EXPLAINING the ‘JEW BANKER’ influence — DON’T wear anything marking you as an ‘evil racist’ — and GET OUT THERE and SPREAD the WORD!”

Hey, they’re way ahead of you Nazis on that score.  Just check out the pics from Zombie and Ringo from Occupy LA to see just why the Nazis might be cheering these protests from the sidelines — or maybe even closer to the action.  We posted it before, but this video from Reason also shows why the Nazis think they can find fertile recruiting ground at Occupy rallies:

Interviewer: “Name and affiliation?”

Occupy Los Angeles protester: “Patricia McAllister, I’m here representing myself but I do work for the Los Angeles Unified School District. I think that the Zionist Jews who are running these big banks and our Federal Reserve — which is not run by the federal government — they need to be run out of this country.”

Now the White House has apparently decided to align itself with Communists and Nazis, at least for the political benefit:

President Obama and his team have decided to turn public anger at Wall Street into a central tenet of their reelection strategy.

The move comes as the Occupy Wall Street protests gain momentum across the country and as polls show deep public distrust of the nation’s major financial institutions.

And it sets up what strategists see as a potent line of attack against Republican front-runner Mitt Romney, a former investment executive whom Obama aides plan to portray as a wealthy Wall Street sympathizer.

Perhaps Obama should start with an explanation of how MLK Jr would have found himself on the same side as Nazis in any public issue, especially after yesterday’s explicit suck-up to the movement during the dedication ceremony for King’s monument.  I’d love to hear him connect King’s exhortation to judge men by the content of their character with the rampant anti-Semitism displayed at the Occupy rallies to such an extent that it has Nazis cheering.

Uh, no. No they are not “fully endorsed”.
What a steaming pile of stupid that is.

Dave Rywall on October 17, 2011 at 10:37 AM

No…what is stupid is you not being able to see the fact that a large part of the democratic party endorses…supports….takes money….and shares the same ideological views as communist.

Maybe you could actually act like an adult and refute the posts here and the blog post that show the democratic support for communist groups…

…or you could act like an infantile child and just hold your hands over your ears and scream “it’s not so!!!!…it’s not so”….

Who gives a flying f*ck what as*hole fringe groups think or who they support?
 
When fringe group as*holes cheer for the tea party, they’re quickly dismissed. But for OWS? Noooo, the Nazis! The Commies! It’s indictative of something something!
 
So stupid.

Yet:
 

I thought hey that’s either
-an a**hole extremist teabagger
-an a**hole extremist militia guy from the backwoods of Michigan
-an a**hole extremist government hater who is upset he has to pay taxes
-or simply a completely insane person.

yea….
….the MSM is to busy having to search for anyone that will push their journalisto message with any coherency in this mob of crazy to actually report on the “anti-capitalist/F#$k America” ideology that makes up OWS.

While it is true that Nazis hate blacks, I don’t think that will deter many black people from supporting a Nazi endorsed movement. You know who else didn’t like black folk? Che Guevara, who said as much in “The Motorcycle Diaries.” Yet I still see black people wearing Che t-shirts.

Sharke on October 17, 2011 at 12:18 PM

Don’t be stupid, be a smarty, come and join the Nazi Party…

eyedoc on October 17, 2011 at 12:26 PM

Why do liberals hate Jews and Blacks?

Tim_CA on October 17, 2011 at 12:40 PM

Mr. Obama,
When you lie down with Sharpton, Jackson, and the Nazi Party, you get up with fleabaggers.

unclesmrgol on October 17, 2011 at 12:45 PM

Yesterday I juxtaposed Obama’s statement and the nazi party statement on the LA Times website which featured Obama’s quote.

It lasted 20 minutes.

How seriously funny how writer (what’s the source?) seemingly is in disbelief the Nazis were left-wing politically. Public education in this country is beyond embarrassing for anyone to even doubt the main part of Nazism was in fact socialism. That, my friends, is a sad sign of our times.

Chad_ on October 17, 2011 at 2:56 PM

So? Nazis and commies – is there a difference? They are both socialist.

woodNfish on October 17, 2011 at 4:09 PM

Wow, a movement that can be supported by Nazi’s and MLK jr…all that’s left is the dogs and cats living together and we’ll be ready for the end of the world../s

This is one of the first times that I’ve heard that we are sending our remaining funds to the out classed under class with the goal of truly having only the haves and have nots.

Without a strong middle class to protect them, guess who will win?
