It only looks like Onionesque satire because you're not batshit insane.
Samuel “Joe The Plumber” Wurzelbacher, the 2008 campaign microcelebrity and Ohio congressional candidate, has an interesting theory about the Holocaust. Yesterday, Mr. Wurzelbacher released a campaign web video in which he blamed the Holocaust and the Armenian genocide on gun control laws.Say what you want about not-Joe the not-plumber (coughignorantjackasscough), but I think that may be the most Republican ad ever made. Gun porn! America-loving! Crazy-ass conspiracy theories! More gun porn! Intense hatred of vegetables!
“In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917 one-point-five million Armenians, unable to defend themselves were exterminated,” Mr. Wurzelbacher says in the clip. “In 1939, Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, six million Jews and seven million others unable to defend themselves were exterminated.”
Well, there you have it. The Holocaust was caused by excessive gun regulation. Godwin's law is getting quite the workout this campaign season.
