he realizes some people find the swastika offensive

Really, just some people? Where does he hang out, biker bars?

I didn’t really give no thought about it. I still don’t really,” the 42-year-old Hiebert said.

I ain't a'buyin' that 'cuse and you-ins shou'n't neither.

He said he doesn’t think public schools should be allowed to teach Spanish as a foreign language,

This is the product of Limbaugh/Hannity revisionism. More and more people seem to think Spanish instruction is some new and devious form of PC infiltration. I took Spanish in the Colorado Springs public schools in 1960. Nobody thought a thing about it, except how innovative the district was for introducing foreign language instruction at such an early grade level (5th), rather than in high school.

A candidate for state representative says the swastika he's wearing in a snapshot was part of his Halloween costume.

However, the replica of a Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross awarded to German Nazi heroes on the wall behind him is there because he likes what it stands for, said Republican candidate Rodney Hiebert, 42, of Taloga.

“Traditionally it represents honor and dignity, which frankly is something this country can use more of,” Hiebert said.

...

Hiebert faces incumbent Rep. Mike Sanders, 36, R-Kingfisher. The race will be decided Tuesday since no Democrats are running.

Sanders said Hiebert wore the swastika the day he filed as a candidate at the state Capitol, although was hesitant say anything critical about his opponent's choice to wear it.

Rodney Hiebert, who is running against incumbent state Rep. Mike Sanders in Tuesday’s GOP primary, told The Associated Press that he realizes some people find the swastika offensive, but he offered no apology.

Damn straight. Just because he did something he knows to be offensive, that doesn't mean an apology is in order.

He noted the symbol was used as the emblem for the Oklahoma National Guard’s 45th Infantry Division in the 1920s and 1930s, and by some Native American tribes.

Just because a symbol was used by the nazis, that doesn't mean we should give-up on it. In fact, lets bring back those Charlie Chaplin short mustaches. And from now on, "SS" stands for "Super Sexy!"

“I was just going to be a vampire. I had just got off work, and my friend said, ‘Here, put this on and we’ll just pass you off as a vampire and go.’

Yeah, because that how vampires traditionally looked.

I didn’t really give no thought about it. I still don’t really,” the 42-year-old Hiebert said.

What is there to think about? Its just something he knows to be offensive. Its not a big deal.

Hiebert, who says he would serve only one term if elected, said he is not a racist and that he has friends from various ethnicities and countries.

I believe him. No candidate running for elected office has ever said that when accused of racism.

“Their heritage and traditions are going the way of the Dodo, while we’re teaching our kids a foreign language to accept or be conditioned for when the United States is not primarily an English speaking nation anymore,” Hiebert said.

That last part convinces me sincerely he cares about Native American culture.

...

In case someone couldn't tell: this entire post = /sarc

I find it offensive to the vampire community to suggest that they're associated with Nazis to the extent that a swastika is considered 'part' of a vampire costume.

Something wrong with you, you don wanna show no love for the Nazi vampires!

“Their heritage and traditions are going the way of the Dodo, while we’re teaching our kids a foreign language to accept or be conditioned for when the United States is not primarily an English speaking nation anymore,” Hiebert said.

So Hiebert favors teaching Navajo in public schools, then?

Sanders said Hiebert wore the swastika the day he filed as a candidate at the state Capitol, although was hesitant say anything critical about his opponent's choice to wear it.

I'm trying to decide who the bigger asshole here is -- nah, fuck it, it's a tie.

ETA: Wow look at the time. Obviously I'm a disgruntled vampire.

Yeah. I remember Bela Lugosi wearing a swastika and Vincent Price and.....What a farce.

Maybe Iott can get him into his Waffen SS re-enactor unit.
