Nazi shot in Seattle

Okay then. Sounds like the northwest Nazis are kind of losing it (as if being a Nazi isn’t a sign in and of itself of insanity.)

The New Year was scarcely two hours old when Seattle police were forced to shoot an apparent neo-Nazi wearing a German military uniform in the Ravenna-University District.

Police say he aimed a rifle attached with a bayonet at them and refused to put it down.

The wounded man was taken to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries but was still alive shortly before 7 a.m., police spokesman Jeff Kappel said.


Inside the residence from which the armed man emerged to confront police was Nazi regalia and alcohol, Kappel said.

It all happened shortly before 2 a.m. when a call from alarmed residents was made to 911 about five men in their 20s with guns, dressed in military uniforms and other dark clothing, who were firing shots in the west end of the alley on the 5200 block of 17th Avenue Northeast.

Police reached the caller and talked to witnesses who said two of the men had been firing guns. One was believed to be carrying a rifle and the other a shotgun.

According to the article, police are still on the lookout for a second man who might be armed and also wearing a similar uniform.

Happy New Year! And watch out for those Seattle Nazis, that’s just flipped out.

UPDATE Fri. Jan. 2 11:20 AM– At Slog, Jonathan Spangenthal-Lee reports that the man who was shot (and later died) was a University of Washington student majoring in German studies and a WWII buff. Some of the deceased’s friends are saying the Nazi aspect “is being blown out of proportion.”

A sad situation anyhow you slice it.

    I wonder if the second Nazi is planning a blitzkrieg on the Lenin statue in Fremont.

    If so, geographically speaking, Wallingford would then logically be the Sudetenland of Seattle, since it is in between the U-District and Fremont.

    One of them was wearing a plaid skirt, carrying bagpipes, and wielding a knife — whick he kept referring to as a ‘dirk’.

    Nazis and Fraternity Row … it figures. Somehow, the two seem to go together. Signed, a former GDI.

    Speaking of Nazis, thank you, Israel, for killing the Islamic Nazi and terrorist Nizar Rayan, one of the leaders of Hamas.

    I greatly admire Israel.

    If you’re going to try to insult me, would you at least get the nomenclature correct?

    It’s a kilt, which is a man’s garment, in a tartan, not a plaid (which is a seperate garment, pronounced “played”) skirt. Kilts are worn at the waist, skirts at the hips.

    I play a bagpipe – singular. Bagpipes is a band.

    A knife is a sgian dubh, which is Gaelic for black knife, while a dirk is a short sword.

    If you’re going to play cultural insult, study the cultural norms and traditions first – you’ll avoid being embarrassed and humiliated.

    @7 Israel takes all the land, all the water, and Palestinian lives; and you wonder why the Palestinians fight? There is no innocent side in this conflict, and there won’t be peace until Israel stops bullying the Palestinians, and the Palestinians stop fighting Israelis.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    The Palestinian strategy is to provoke the Israelis to keep kicking their asses until the world feels sorry for them.

    The Israeli strategy is to keep kicking their asses until they don’t have any asses left.

    If the Palestinians want sympathy, maybe they should stop firing random rockets at women and children. Maybe they should start acting like a civilized society that doesn’t train its children to commit suicide attacks. Maybe they should recognize the right of a people to exist in their homeland. The Palestinians are not wanted anywhere, by their own Arab brothers. The Iranians are using them to fight a proxy war, and the Palestinians are stupid enough to do it.

    I guess I feel sorry for them throwing in with Hamas.

    YLB spews:

    True Hamas is flat-out hostile to Israel but Palestinians support Hamas because they view Hamas as more supportive of their interests than Fatah:

    Hamas devotes much of its estimated $70-million annual budget to an extensive social services network. It funds schools, orphanages, mosques, healthcare clinics, soup kitchens, and sports leagues. “Approximately 90 percent of its work is in social, welfare, cultural, and educational activities,” writes the Israeli scholar Reuven Paz. The Palestinian Authority often fails to provide such services; Hamas’s efforts in this area—as well as a reputation for honesty, in contrast to the many Fatah officials accused of corruption—help to explain the broad popularity it summoned to defeat Fatah in the PA’s recent elections.

    Remember Dumbya’s speech calling for “new leadership”, i.e. dump Arafat.

    “Oh no!”, exclaimed Dumbya, “I didn’t mean THAT kind of leadership!”.

    Gee I thought Dumbya was all for Democracy.

    I think this calls for a harsh crackdown on all far right organizations. I.e. The Republican Party.

    Oh, right,… we The American People did that in November.

    Geez, what a great comment @14. Did you spend a lot of time thinking that one up? I’m always amazed at what passes for thoughtfulness around here.

    When your choices are an openly corrupt PA or Hamas, which is doing things in the community, it isn’t surprising who the Palestinians chose. Hamas is funded by Iran, so they can afford to buy off the population.

    Too bad the Palestinians are getting death for accepting a deal with the devil.

    @15: Umm Janet, the post at #14 is clearly sarcasm.

    The inability to recognize sarcasm is a common trait of people with little intellectual curiosity or very dogmatic opinoins (and a slightly lower IQ).

    @6: Troll with the lowest IQ: Your famous sayings and the racist and pathetically dumb things you write have already been documented by Jon. After I read your link, I realized that the “bomber” was a 72 year old who acted alone and was basically comitting suicide. Yes, he hated Bush but so do most real americans (75%). So your logic that this is a “liberal” act is once again wrong. Do you enjoy being stupid or does it come naturally to you?

    Real American and sarcasm are diametrically opposed particles. You, on the other hand walk lockstep with Moonbat! lunacy.

    75% “hate” Bush? Well if that’s the “official” libtard MSM definition of hate, I guess I could possibly “hate” Nevercorrectnottobright.

    @7 Israel takes all the land, all the water, and Palestinian lives; and you wonder why the Palestinians fight?

    Pelletizer, do you understand the history of the 1948 Arab Israeli War? Do you understand over 500,000 Palestinians left their Israel land based homes because their Arab brothers told them to leave so they wouldn’t be caught in the 1948 war crossfire when Arab states attacked Israel? Well Israel won that war. When Israel tried to negotiate the Palestinians return, no Arab state wanted to negotiate their return with Israel, so the Palestinians got screwed by their own cousins and it continues until this day. I always wondered why Israel would want to allow the return of people sworn to wipe you off the earth. Kind of like the sayings of your good friend Whackminojab of Iran is still saying in 2008.

    Damn, you are one libtard Moonbat! dumb bunny Pelletizer. Arafat stuffs international AID money into Swiss Bank Accounts. Suha Arafat (his wife) lives on a $22 Million a year stipend in Paris from those Swiss Bank Account $$$. Hamas has received over $6 Billion in aid and what have they done with it? How do I know this? I posted it earlier this week dumb bunny. But, as always, your liberalism mental disorder causes you to forget anything over 24 hours old…

    Then I post Fatah was buying weapons with international aid. You don’t think Hamas is doing the same thing with their aid money? And if you think Hamas was a peaceful player in Gaza go back to 2007 and read articles of the Hamas/Fatah internal conflict in Gaza.

    Finally, the seattle liberals come out and just admit they are Nazis, it’s about time!

    We all know that Goldy et al are just jackbooted thugs looking to steal riches just like the Nazis as well as hate on a Jew or two, as is evident from the anti Israeli comments of Roger Rabbit.

    At first when I saw the title of this post, I assumed it was one of the right wing trolls who hides out here at HA who got shot. Since we bent these fools over and fucked them in the ass on Nov 4, they have all been reverting to their natural tendencies which is of course to model the hero of the right, Adolf Hitler.

    So sad these pathetic, right wing fools. So sad.

    a Nazi-era uniform

    From Wiki…

    Nazi Germany and the Third Reich are the colloquial English names for Germany when it was under the regime of the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP), which established a totalitarian dictatorship that existed from 1933 to 1945.

    So this student is in a uniform from Germany during the period of 1933 to 1945. No where does it say Nazi uniform.

    What the F^ck is up with Seattle’s education that reading comprehension is so bad?

    If anyone had even a passing knowledge of that era would know the difference between different branches of the military.

    But I guess it’s more sensational for writes to insinuate that the UW is full of nazis.

    Though the PI’s Sound-Off section seems closer to it considering how many people were complaining about how the SPD is out shooting white kids instead of brown people like they’re supposed to.

    Did y’all see the pic of the same kid dressed up as a British soldier complete with kilt? Does that mean he eats bubble and squeak, spotted dick and drinks warm beer?

    A WW2 German soldier uniform is not a Nazi uniform.

    You seen how many folks in the US dress up as Johnny Reb for reenacting?
