Marcy Cowflop has a lot of explaining to do. It's kind of pathetic that the Iott re-enactor "crisis" is the best her handlers can do.

I know it's hard for you socialists to think outside the box, but consider this; when you re-enact a period in history, such as the revolutionary war, or the War Between the States, or Korea, or Viet Nahm, or WWII, somebody has to play the bad guys, right?-or you couldn't re-enact very much.

I think it is more disturbing, frankly, when Marcy Cowflop compares the Muslim Terrorists to our founding fathers RIGHT AFTER 9/11; or when she went to Cuba to meet with Fidel Castro and tell him what a great country Cuba is; or how she claims to be a devout catholic, but voted to fund abortions on demand in the Health care bill; or how she funnels unethical "stimulus" money directly to her big unions, who promptly spend the money to support her campaign.; or how she has theoretically been in congress for 28 years, but she doesn't know who Ben Bernanke is; or how she hasn't paid taxes on her many real estate holdings in her district; or etc., etc., etc.

Yeah, I'll take the WWII re-enactor any day.

Best Regards,

Regarding reenactors: In Ohio, It is known as the Civil War,( War of the Rebellion ), not "The War Between the States". If you are truly an Ohioan, you wouldn't use Copperhead terminology for the war - the Union side were the good guys and Ohio was a Union state (though unfortunately one does see a few fools flying their Confederate flags around here). As for SS Wiking, they operated pretty much exclusively on the Russian front, so an accurate portrayal would likely include reenacting the casual murder of civilians. Joseph Mengele was also a member, so twisted "medical experiments" would be included too - guaranteed "entertainment" for the far right if reenacted accurately.
As for "self made" man Iott, he inherited his business from his father, promptly fired all the workforce, and cashed in on his "inheritance" so to speak. Those are Iott's "business" credentials. Iott would likely have no problem shipping more Ohio factory jobs overseas considering how ruthless he was there ("outsourcing"/ "creative destruction" of millions of jobs does made a lot of Ohio libertarian conservatives happy - more cheap labor for them to exploit for next to nothing). The again, Iott's identification with Wiking SS is entirely appropriate given this context since both are predators who care nothing for people in general.

This foul lie exposes your fundamental dishonesty, thus discrediting the rest of you slander.

What foul lie? Mengele was a member of SS-Wiking (check it up sometime if you don't believe me) and the far right has traditionally been anti Semitic, especially the "paleo conservatives" like Pat Buchanan, Robert Rice Reynolds, Robert Taft, Charles Lindbergh, Willis B. Carto to name a few of the bigger figures in the US alone. If you don't want to admit the connection (even collaboration) of the far right with the Third Reich (a far right movement itself), that is your "fundamental dishonesty" as you would say.
