Kansas City, MO—
Neo-nazi LARPer Richard Spencer is once again planning a neo-Nazi protest rally, but the reason for this one is different than the other white supremacy rallies in which he has participated.
For this rally, tentatively scheduled to take place in Kansas City, MO, Spencer is orchestrating a more personal protest.
“It is total bullshit that in all of the Call of Duty video games, you can’t play as the Nazis,” Spencer said in a Facebook post to garner interest in the protest. “I don’t hate America, I just want to be able to play the Nazis in World War II video games. That of course means I’ll be shooting a bunch of Americans in the game, but it’s so unfair to Nazi Germany’s memory that so many games are accurate to history by culminating in an Allied victory over Hitler. Nazis are the most misunderstood group of people in the history of humanity. And nowadays Nazis certainly face more discrimination than any other demographic of people. You can’t even say that Jews should be exterminated anymore before your Nazi First Amendment rights are immediately taken away and everyone hates you for just being yourself. I’m personally not a Nazi myself, but a lot of people mistake me for being a Nazi, and the confusion has allowed me to see first-hand the discrimination that Nazis face every day. I thought this was 2017, but the long arc of morality has not blessed Nazism in any way. They tell every kid in grade school that you can be anything you want to be when you grow up, but it’s obvious that that doesn’t apply to being a proud German Nazi who is excited to remember his Nazi, genocidal heritage. Nazis have it much harder than black people, or Native Americans, or the physically handicapped. Nazis deserve much better. And again, I’m totally not a Nazi, I can’t emphasize this enough. I just think Nazis are cool, and had cool uniforms, and should have conquered Britain, and then launched an epic sea invasion of the United States so that America today would be the crown jewel of a Nazi Empire policed harshly by an American branch of the SS, and that I could have joined the Hitler youth as a kid and stood out so that I would eventually become an aged Hitler’s private assistant and helped give Hitler his daily sponge baths. Does that make me a Nazi? Only the liberal media and fake news will say so. But in reality, good Americans know that I’m just a history buff. So for real, come out with me next Saturday and protest Call of Duty video games. I don’t ask for much, I just want a couple missions in each game where you play as Nazis roaming around New York City, or Chicago, or Los Angeles shooting Americans for not respecting the Third Reich.”
Spencer’s post had two “likes” at time of this publishing, and both of those accounts have since been harassed impressively for their Nazi snowflake sympathies.
