Tea Party Group Sends Fundraising Email With Pic of Karl Rove in Nazi Uniform

Teabaggers do the darnedest things

You know your Nazi analogies are getting out of control when you start using them against people who are basically on your side: Tea Party Group Pictures Rove in Nazi Uniform.

A top tea party group is taking its clash with Karl Rove to a new level, sending out a fundraising email Tuesday featuring a photoshopped image of the GOP operative in an SS uniform.

“Wipe the Smirk Off Karl Rove’s Face,” reads the subject line of the email, from Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder and national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots.

The email features a photo illustration in which Rove’s face is grafted onto a photo of a uniformed officer in the Reichsführer-SS, an elite class of soldier in the German Schutzstaffel during Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich. The lower left-hand corner of the photo features the inscriptions “Reichsführer-SS” and “K. Rove,” and appears to match a photo of SS Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler.

The spokesman for Tea Party Patriots says it was an accident. Because anybody could end up with a picture of Karl Rove wearing an SS uniform in a fundraising email. There’s a lot of it going around.

Jameson Cunningham, a spokesman for Tea Party Patriots, said the image was added by accident. “The image was a mistake which was never approved by TPP,” he told POLITICO.

Gotta love those wacky, irrepressible teabaggers. They keep coming up with new ways to make themselves look like complete idiots. Good thing they’re not actually influential with the Republican Party or anything like that. (Cough.)
