United Fascists

It”s been some time since we made fun of Fascists on here, or as they sometimes like to call themselves in the US, “Facists”. What with ISIS, assorted islamic loony toons and far out cults approaching People’s Temple dive into terminal madness it’s easy to forget that there are actually just plain loons. Helmeted and uniformed, weird to watch (if you can sit through these Presidential campaign speeches for 2000 and 2004 without cracking a smile you have more self control than I have), but basically harmless. I give you Jack Grimes and the United Fascist Union. Or is that the United Facist Union? You decide :). You will note, however, that he seems to be made of wood. Maybe he’s Al Gore’s alter ego.



UFU ran in 2000 and 2004. They were also running in 2008, but for some reason it never took off. The campaign site still exists, however, run by hiis Propaganda Minister. And girlfriend, if I remember. But it’s inactive. Oh, and note the pentagram. Jack seems to have had a bee in his helmet about some spiritual matters, but I don’t think I ever saw a full explanation.
