TIL that on August 25, 1967, George Lincoln Rockwell, founder of the American Nazi Party, was shot and killed in Arlington, VA. Hearing of his son’s death, Rockwell’s father said: “I am not surprised at all. I’ve expected it for quite some time.”

Cringe assassination for my fail son

You Fools! The Story doesn’t end there! 

Rockwell was killed by a fellow Nazi over an internal dispute. The remaining Nazis were the ones to decide what to do with his corpse. Now, Rockwell was a veteran (he had been chaptered out of the Navy for being a Nazi), so he was technically allowed to be buried in a Military Cemetery, so they procured him a spot, however the Government put on a stipulation that no Nazi imagery be present anywhere near the cemetery or the funeral or on the tombstone. The Nazis agreed to this.

However, being Nazis, they disregarded it and flew Swastikas during the funeral procession, causing the local law enforcement to bar them from the cemetery grounds. This stand off goes on for several hours, Rockwell’s hearse being held up on train tracks outside the Cemetery where it is ultimately struck by a passing train, mangling his corpse.

Reblogging again because you can never have enough Nazi flag ripping on your blog.

Reblogging because we stand against hate.

Reblogging because fuck yes

Mainstream media is really important in shaping a popular opinion – this movie (the Sound of Music, for people who don’t recognise it) was the first thing I knew about Nazis and the beginning of the war. I’d never heard about them before, and I remember mum having to explain to me what the symbol meant. This movie showed likable, strong and sympathetic characters tearing up Nazi flags and resisting the Nazis. It showed Nazi-sympathizers as intimidating and unfair. It showed us that normal people (Rolfe) could fall for their propaganda and we could lose them. 

I was seven years old when I first watched this and immediately I knew Nazis were terrible, and because of the power of the story and the warmth of the characters this feeling sunk to my core. 

I worry a lot about kids whose first introduction to world events is a movie like ‘American Sniper’. 

Fun fact when filming this the guy couldn’t rip the flag quickly enough so they had to make a tiny cut in the flag, which is why he turns it around a few times before tearing it in half
