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.

It wasn't the restaurant that held a Nazi Christmas party, it was the the people who like to dress up like Nazis that had their party at this restaurant.

/Blame those people

My first reaction was "this is awful" but then I thought "is this any worse than dressing up in any other number of historical costumes that were associated with violence?"

If the guy with the Polish name who runs the place wants to allow this, and in doing so offend his antecedents, I guess it's his business and no one else's.

All those Midwestern squareheads who were in the American Bund until Dec. 7, 1941? They have descendants, and they're about as apologetic for their grandparents Hitlerism as the Daughters of the Confederacy. NOT COOL, Minnesota, and you know that.

Yeah, Cowboys and Indians is sort of a bad example there, even in the old school western shows the game refers to neither group were really the "bad guys" all the time, there were always white hats and black hats in both groups, plus lots of "both sides have a point" conflicts and "both sides are morons" conflicts.

A better example might have been Cops and Robbers, where typically it's understood that the latter group is in the wrong pretty unambiguously.

I was going to ask what makes it a nazi themed dinner. Authentic 30s German food?

Then I read TFA and saw that it was an actual nazi themed dinner with decorations and uniforms and shiat.

What the fark,

Thanks for making my point. Though mine was just gonna be a pithy one-off "but why would they want to be the good guys" comment.

Re-enactment folks can really get into their...um...art? We see this sort of thing w/r/t the Civil War all the time down here in the South. People go and repeat the battle of such-and-such and then go have a bite to eat while still in costume. Makes for great photos, actually.

Guess it would have spoiled the effect to have a few Allied cosplay folks in for the Minn. gathering at the same time, right? Ike wouldn't have been invited to one of Hitler's staff dinners, I guess. I mean, this was a Nazi-only affair and all.

/ guess I'll never really understand re-enactments and cosplay

// but I've made at least 6 cosplay costumes for my kids for AWA

Yes, it is worse. Much worse. It's a fair bit worse than dressing up in Klan outfits with a stuff Black mannequin hanging by a noose from the rafters

FTA "'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,'"

I'm not an American - can someone explain the last bit and how this relates?

You do know there were Polish Nazi sympathizers.

Oh and can the restaurant owner clue us into what they were reenacting?  Battle reenactments I can get.  Somebody has to play the bad guys.  But a dinner?  What were they going for, the night of the long steak knives?

Everybody is worried about offending democrats, because once they start whining it usually takes years for them to stop.

They were viewed that way by Americans fora long time. America is trying to erase the way it depicted Indiana as savages.

Dinner is delicious, but the aftertaste is REALLY ruined by the cyanide capsule you have to chew when you get caught leaving.

Generally in the US, if a person hates Jews or gays they also hate Democrats.

fyi, any two word combo that starts with 'first' and ends with 'post' gets filterpwned, even if extra letter like 'er' were attached to 'post'.

In defense of these weird people, you have the choice between a hugo boss designed nazi uniform, maybe one of those black leather SS overcoats, a frumpy british uniform or a forgettable american officer uniform.  You will not be photographed and it is not a political statement.  What do you choose?

But doing this as a group activity, just weird.  And where would you go find a nazi officer's uniform anyway?
