What a way to wake up in Rapid City! A delightful article on some enterprising Nazis right in my town.
Kelly, 55, sells Nazi flags, Adolf Hitler figurines and replica canisters of Zyklon B, among hundreds of items, to customers around the country and world. Kelly said orders from South Dakota residents are rare.
Kelly said he, his wife Linda and their nine children are not Nazis and are not anti-Semitic. He said they sell the items, largely made in China, to veterans, historians, actors, collectors and people looking for a Halloween costume or gag gift.
A gag gift? Really? Only to China. Looking at the propaganda they are selling, I doubt that any cserious collector (unless also a Nazi) would partake in some of the items pictured in the article. The best example would be the Hitler coaster than read “Next Time, No More Mr. Nice Guy”. Collectors, my ass.
“I’m a supporter of the U.S. constitution; I don’t have anything to do with politics,” he said.
You have nothing to do with politics. That 12 inch Resin Statue of Hitler must be one of those gag gifts, right? Where else would a Hitler Youth be able buy these articles of propoganda?
Sometimes, I am just disgusted. We have the ability to be compassionate but instead we sell objects of hate only because the market has a niche. This family lives an affluent area of town in a huge house through the selling of Nazi propaganda.
This is greed, ignorance and stupidity.
[As a postscript, I chose not to include images from the article in this post. They were propaganda at its worse for one of the most evil individuals the world has ever seen. What disturbs me the most is the free advertising this creep just recieved by HAVING A FRONT PAGE ARTICLE ON SELLING HATE.]
