By their deeds shall ye know them....

I've pointed out the roots of today's Republican party.

But every once in a while, they just take off their robes for all to see. ThinkProgress reports:
Conservative House Candidate In Indiana Defends Speaking To Nazi Group On Hitler’s Birthday

On Sunday, Tony Zirkle — who is seeking the Republican nomination in Indiana’s 2nd Congressional district — delivered a speech to the American National Socialist Workers Party (ANSWP) on the 119th anniversary of Adolf Hitler’s birth. At the event, Zirkle “stood in front of a painting of Hitler, next to people wearing swastika armbands and with a swastika flag in the background.”

Asked by reporters why he spoke to a group like ANSWP, which refers to itself as “the largest and most active pro-white organization in America,” Zirkle said he’ll “speak before any group that invites me,” adding that he’s even “spoken on an African-American radio station in Atlanta.”

Zirkle told The News-Dispatch that he doesn’t “know enough about the group” to say whether he agrees with it’s ideology or not:

When asked if he was a Nazi or sympathized with Nazis or white supremacists, Zirkle replied he didn’t know enough about the group to either favor it or oppose it.

Ya think maybe the swastika arm-bands and the picture of Adolph in the background might have tipped him off? Well, maybe not, he's a Republican....

And wow. Talking to blacks is like giving a speech to a bunch of Nazis?!?!? That good ol' "moral relativism" sneaking in, I guess. He's certainly a brave soul to actually speak to blacks.
