TheJoe03: You're comparing transvestites with Nazis?


I'm comparing to groups of people at a private event minding their own business. And why not? You think you should be the only one who decides who they want to embarrass?

You think you should be the self righteous judge of who to leave alone and who to harass? Somebody decides they don't like cross dressers and decides to post pictures of the men dressed as women at a private event to embarrass them in the community, you ok with that? Show me how this group is hurting you.

You're comparing transvestites with Nazis? I'm not harassing these people either, just shiat talking on the internet. These people farked up and took pictures as Nazis and are now embarrassed because the community now knows what they are about. They farked up and I feel no pity for them.


You ARE aware that they are re-enactors and that they probably abhor Nazis the same as most people do, aren't you?  It's PRETEND.

What are they reenacting exactly? It doesn't seem like they abhor Nazis at all. You can dress up like a Klansman but most people aren't going to think its pretend or that you dislike the KKK. Let's just saying dressing up like a Nazi and going to a German restaurant with a bunch if other idiots dressed like Nazis ain't a good look. At the very least don't pose for pictures in that scenario.

Random Internet Persona: Rhino_man:

I absolutely farking hate the fact that the Nazis had such good looking uniforms.  The Confederates, too... but mostly the Nazis.

Do you know why?

BECAUSE NOW NOBODY CAN WEAR THEM!

Let's face it, this uniform looks farking GREAT:

And it's ruined.  It's absolutely ruined.  Thanks, Hitler.


I think they look sexy.

//stop looking at me like that.


... which is exactly my point.  If it weren't for all the evil stuff about murdering jews, you wouldn't have to worry about saying they look sexy.  I also wouldn't feel so strange saying I'd look sexy IN one.

The only 'followup' i'll care about is when the restaurant files for bankruptcy as a result of lost business.

/not expecting it though

This is fake outrage. Most of the people that were alive in the early 1930-1940s are either dear or were too young to understand what was going on.  Unless their main demographic is 90%, 90+ year-olds, They'll likely be fine

lolwut?

Meaning most people alive today didn't actually experience it. All they know is that they've been taught they should be outraged about it. Do they actually care? I doubt it.

Except their children and grandchildren are in their 40s-70s and yeah, a German restaurant really does rely on that demographic.  I will be 100% surprised if theyre trying to market themselves and rely upon the under-40 crowd.  Again, I dont think they'll file but it's the only story I'd care to read about.

You cannot "tolerate" these things and make them seem "okay," you just can't. And people who can't understand that are going to be the first ones joining the next Nazi party.

2014-03-19 05:33:41 PM  

Baz744: Lumbar Puncture: Since one of the interviewed guest is a member of a re-enactment group, I'll presume the opposite and believe that the restaurant and these people were re-enactors having a get together instead of some weird random Nazi celebration. Maybe that's naive on my part, but I'd prefer to believe until proven otherwise that they were dopey misguided re-enactors rather than a secret evil Nazi cabal

It's a fair point; but we don't know if the interviewed re-enactor, for example, only ever dresses up as a Nazi, or dresses up as a Nazi like 80% of the time.

I just don't understand the need to lie and say it was a generally WW2 themed costume party if it wasn't about promoting Nazi ideology. If it was just dopey bad judgment, why not say "you know, that was a bad call. Next year we'll have an exclusively allied-themed costume party to make up for it?"


I don't know if the owner is lying.  The restaurant owner made that claim, but he's not the one who'd be taking pictures.  Given the dust up over it, I can imagine not to many of the people at that party want to come forward and show pictures and say they were there.  The restaurant is certainly larger than what the pictures show and there's a whole basement floor as well though so just because pictures haven't been posted yet doesn't mean they don't exist, and the person who released the pictures has remained anonymous and is unwilling to provide any other information.

I think it's kind of weird, I mean I have a hard time imagining people re-enacting the Iraq War 50 years from now and dressing up as insurgents and having a holiday party, but I think people are jumping to conclusions based off of very little context.  Is the owner covering his ass?  Probably.  But I also think there's probably more to the story than a bunch of old Nazi sympathizer who met on craigslist and rented out a restaurant.  That place ain't cheap, they'd be better off circle jerking each other with red armbands in a basement while they make bratwurst on a Foreman grill.

What a non story. I love history, and I have OCD when it comes to accuracy and attention to detail. I don't do historical re-enacting, but I have thought about it, and if I did, and if I was to dress up as a Nazi I would go the whole hog and dress up immaculately. I don't like the Nazis, I'm rather pleased they lost, and I wouldn't wear the uniform outside where anyone might see me. If the jacket only had the swastika on it then I would keep it hidden until I was inside the venue. I wouldn't attend an open air reenactment dressed as a Nazi because I know if I did I would have to do it properly. I don't want to offend people or give off the impression that I love the Nazis.

Maybe some of them are racists, I don't know, but the idea of someone dressing up as a Nazi does not immediately qualify them as racists, and nor does the date for their dinner have any significance unless you can prove they chose it deliberately. I see no reason to doubt their story.

I would love to own a Nazi uniform, and an 18 century Redcoat uniform, and a medieval suit of armour, and a 19th century British khaki uniform, and any piece of history. It's all just history now, and I find it fascinating.

Like nifty uniforms? Don't want to stir up a shiatstorm by wearing a Nazi or Commie uniform? Do what I did. Invent your own unique uniform.

I'm almost finished setting up my hobby farm in New Hampshire. To amuse myself, I named the farm "Omega Station". And, I appointed myself as Commanding Officer. Having lived or worked on military bases most of my life I wanted my farm to be a little military outpost of my very own, a half assed hybrid of Fort Apache and Area 51, where I can keep horses, play cavalry, build my inventions and gadgets as I fade away to oblivion. Hence the name. My final posting. Last stop. No more moving. The one way mission.

So, in honor of Star Trek, the work uniform is red coveralls. I'm not coming back from this mission. With an Omega Station patch and nameplate over the pocket, it looks very official. The red color serves a practical purpose, visibility during the dim, rainy winters, and I won't be mistaken for a deer when working out in the fields.

I couldn't stop there. I went to Dickies Work wear and got chocolate brown shirts and pants. Added the patch, brass nameplate, khaki tie and khaki belt and brown uniform shoes. So now I have a Class B uniform for around town. It looks like a militarized version of a UPS man uniform.

The final insanity: Dress Uniform. Went to Mark at The History Bunker in Britain. They're busy making WWI uniforms for the upcoming WWI commemoration. I got Mark to make me a WWI American Army Officer uniform, except in chocolate brown and plain brass buttons. With my brown riding boots, brown Sam Browne belt, and a brown Smokey Bear hat it looks friggin' awesome. Just the thing to wear when riding my horse around the countryside...it's good to be retired and as eccentric as I wanna be....

Or rather, can demonstrate they chose it deliberately in some kind of racist humor. It's a day off for a lot of people that isn't a holy day nor full of parties or traditions, so I can kinda see why you'd use it for an otherwise hard to gather group of people.

MelGoesOnTour: T.rex: scottydoesntknow: Prey4reign: Why is it such a shock that the dinner took place on MLK Day?  Hitler never denounced MLK and MLK never denounced Hitler.

Hitler had a, shall we say, less than favorable view on African people and anyone who descended from them.

While you are right that neither leader said anything specifically about each other, their ideologies were miles apart.

According to Jesse Owens himself, it was Roosevelt who snubbed him at the Olympics.  Hitler congratulated him and shook his hand even though he was not obligated to do so.

Can you send some sort of citation for this (I find it incredibly interesting, if true).

FTA: Owens said he thought Hitler waved at him at one point. But he never corroborated Mischner's story [about shaking Hitler's hand] before his death from lung cancer in 1980, at the age of 66.

That does corroborate what the wiki on Owens said, but there was no confirmation from Owens that he actually shook Hitler's hand.

But I will grant you that a wave was more than what FDR did for him.

I fear becoming an Internet meme...

I wear this stuff because it amuses me..AND, I use it as a motivational tool to keep me bathing and shaving and not become fat. Which is hard to avoid when you wake up retired and don't have to go to work or school or even get out of your pajamas if you don't wanna.

Wear a uniform while fat and unshaven and people laugh. Wear a uniform well shaven, trim weight, etc., people get out of your way, store managers open checkout lanes for you (actually happened), etc.

It somewhat disturbs me how easy you can manipulate people with an official *looking* uniform.

Sidebar:  My wife and I actually did an [unpublished] study about that sort of reaction and it's pretty much true. To a great extent, it goes well beyond wearing an "official" uniform. Don a white lab coat or make notes on a large paper notepad/cipboard (which, ironically, these days looks more "official" than a person doing the same thing on an iPad) and people will look upon you as though you are "the person in charge".

Magorn: If they are truly a WWII recreation society then it might be a legit non-racist think like an SCA feast or Civil War encampment.

I knew a guy in the DC area who was a WWII Re-enactor who frequently participated in re-enactments in Waffen SS garb.  I'm very sure he wasn't a neo-Nazi because if he HAD been the commander of his unit would have kicked his ass.  The commander also had a full Waffen SS uniform, only his was an original, taken from an officer at the death camp he was interned at after the place was liberated.

Why would a Holocuast survivor also play a Nazi in historical re-enactments?

because he was bound and determined never to let the world forget what utterly evil bastards they were, and as you might expect, most people are pretty reluctant to play SS units in WWII battles


All this.  Expecially the last, It can even have a negative impact on re-enactments.
http://www.ldnews.com/ci_22456912/lack-nazis-shame-at-bulge-re-enact me nt-at

It's a historical society thing.  People have to play the unpopular parts.  And as long as it's all pretend, why not be the better dressed villains? (And who would want to get that all dirty by romping in the battlefield?)

Actors in hollywood do it all the time, just recently for Tarrantino's flick.

It's all a knee-jerk reaction because nazi=bad.  People just don't get constumage, or roleplaying at all for that matter.

I'm a member of a club called the Army of Toy Soldiers (aka Toy Soldiers Unite). A largely geek/eccentric club, big in the steampunk community, used to be a musician's fan club until the musician retired. Our uniforms are black paramilitary, so we get the "Nazi" label a lot even though we're really just an artistic community all about promoting fun and creativity and doing charity work for groups like Childs Play. Members are allowed to create their own riff on the basic uniform however they desire... these are some of my uniform variants:

i1102.photobucket.com

Our uniforms are largely parody; part of their function is to call attention to how government and the media have manipulates people through propaganda (we use propaganda to combat propaganda!). We are taught to react rather than to think critically. People are conditioned to have an instant Pavlovian fear response whenever they encounter an unfamiliar black uniform; one immediately assumes the person wearing it must be a Nazi or fascist of some kind.
