I'll never understand these folks who like to celebrate being on the losing side.

Same goes for fans of the Confederacy.

It's the same as wanting to be the bad guy when you're playing cowboys and Indians. There's an attraction to the bad side."

I'd love to know which side he thinks is bad...

Indeed.

Yep, nothing at all wrong mixing the celebration of Christ's birth with the worst genocides in history. Just good clean educational fun. Yep, fun.

I was thinking 'whatever whatever whatever, let em be, to each their own ...'

"If you wear a German uniform or a Nazi uniform, it's not like you're saying, 'I think Hitler was super cool' or 'I hate Jews' or 'I hate gays' or 'I hate democrats,'" Boroom explains. "You're not there because you believe in what Hitler stood for - you're there to educate people about history, and a lot of that is so people don't forget. It's the same as wanting to be the bad guy when you're playing cowboys and Indians. There's an attraction to the bad side."

Huh? Where'd that come from?

Fear not, this is not a sign of the resurgence of the Nazi party in America. No, there is a perfectly good explanation for this heinous scene at Gasthof Zur Gemutlichkeit restaurant. Jon Boorom is a member of WWII Historical Re-enactment Society Inc., the group that put on the dinner, and said it was just a fun get together of people with likeminded interests.

I have no reason not to believe this (yet), so.. meh.  I can't get as worked up as the author.

So, fourth of July would be OK then?  They are re-enactors. They like the history of it all.

On the fourth it would be warm enough to do an outside reenactment. Maybe a mock up of some ovens and some showers. Lots of barbed wire. Some of the gang could lose a lot of weight for it to be more authentic. You know, for the history of it all.

So damn stylish. They definitely purged the gays after creating the uniforms.
 
2014-03-17 04:48:27 PM
Y'know, I sometimes wonder how World War II would have turned out, if the Germany military was as lopsided in favor of SS troops as re-enactors are.

For a group that claims to not be celebrating Nazis or their crimes, they sure seem to like playing the people who committed those very crimes.

I don't think many reenactors are celebrating their side.

Besides, the point of a reenactment means that somebody is going to have to play the losers - the Confederates or the Germans. It's not as if you can have a Civil War Reenactment where the Union are charging other Union soldiers or a WWII Reenactment where the Americans are invading Normandy and killing the English.

Then again, I have to ask, why aren't there more regular line soldiers, instead of everyone wearing black and Totenkopfs?
 
2014-03-17 05:32:36 PM
Boorom insists that attendees are not neo-Nazis or "political racists," just merely cultural admirers.

That's good, I'll have to remember that line.

Same reason whenever someone said they were somebody in a past life, nobody says that they were some anonymous pig farmer who died of syphilis after a run-in with a Abilene prostitute.

Hubris, man, hubris.

Valid point, just as every American soldier is a Ranger and/or Special Fores, Marines are all Recon and every Sailor, a SEAL.

There was the American Bund that was the american nazi party.

The flags seem a tad much though.

Especially considering that Hitler was an atheist, the Nazis were socialists, and the libs are the REAL fascists.

There was a large NAZI party in America in the 1930s.  They were made up mostly of German immigrants. There was a very interesting show on it.

Hitler hated liberals and ha a bunch slaughtered before WW2 even started. It's part if how he came to power.

Re-enactors always remind me of white suburban guys trying to act ghetto.  All the wannabes are too immature and/or chicken to really stand up, proudly announce their beliefs and then defend those beliefs.  So they couch it as "cultural admirers" instead of calling it "my attempt to be a thug."

I'd certainly have more fun as the villain or loser in re-enactments. As the bad guy you get all the good lines, the best outfits and the most dramatic death.
Heroes are zeroes.

Whenevr someone says that they're always referring to the SS.

You never hear someone say "Boy, those Luftwaffe mechanics sure were snappy dressers!", or "You know what uniforms were really cool? Rommel's Afrika Corps, they wore goggles so often you'd think they were the original steampunks!"

I never think of it that was as there is always an underdog aspect to being on the losing side but there must be something truly wrong with someone to celebrate something truly evil as Nazi Germany or slavery.
 
2014-03-17 06:02:53 PM
There certainly is a creep factor here.  I'm not sure it's any worse than historical re-enactors dressing in Union and Confederate uniforms, or furries, or whatever.   But, it is creepy.

The common soldier wouldn't have been invited to the fancy party. There are lots of regular line reenactors, but they are all standing outside.

I like part where he says when you play cowboys and indians someone has to play the bad guys by which he probably means the indians.
 
2014-03-17 06:20:33 PM
The only thing I learned from watching these reenactors is that WWII was the first war fought entirely by middle-aged fat honkies.
