We March. We Drill. We Fall. We Kill Six Million Jews.

New Lows For The GOP Dept: Rich Iott, House GOP candidate from Ohio, has defended
his weekend hobby of dressing up and playing Nazi - not just any Nazi,
but a particularly murderous division of the SS - as a "purely
historical" exercise. Calling criticisms "mudslinging," he cited his
fascination for "a relatively
small country that from a strictly military point of view accomplished
incredible things." 

From Wiking.org's celebration of the Waffen SS Wiking unit: "Nazi Germany had no problem in recruiting the multitudes
of volunteers willing to lay down their lives to ensure a "New and Free
Europe", free of the threat of Communism. National Socialism was seen by
many in Holland, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and other eastern European
and Balkan countries as the protector of personal freedom and their very
way of life...Thousands
upon thousands of valiant men died defending their respective countries
in the name of a better tomorrow. We salute these idealists; no matter
how unsavory the Nazi government was, the front-line soldiers of the
Waffen-SS gave their lives for
their loved ones and a basic desire to be free."
