Charles is silent on Neo-Nazi Hipsters


It saddens me to see Charles Johnson dropping the ball on more Nazi news.  There is a rise in a new breed of Nazis, they are Nazi Hipsters or known as Nipsters. These new Nazis dress in the style of Hispsters and listen to the same music. The only difference between Nazis and regular Hipsters are that the former are National Socialist and the latter are International Socialist. A Nazi Hipster is indistinguishable from their fellow Hipsters except for some Nazi symbols. This new element is gaining public exposure and Charles has not addressed this new phenomenon.


It’s a rainy Sunday evening in May, in the town of Weiden, in northeastern Bavaria, and Patrick Schroeder, whom the German press has dubbed the “Nazi-hipster,” is preparing for his big webcam entrance. As the opening sequence for his weekly Internet TV show,, plays silently in the background, he ties a bandana stitched with the slogan “H8” around his mouth and fiddles with his mouse. A map of Germany in 1937 hangs on the wall above him.

It’s hard to get the timing for the intro “just right,” he explains, and once the graphics stop playing, he strides into frame and raises his arm, curling his hand into a fist and wishing his viewers, a few hundred members of Germany’s extreme right, a lovely evening. He calls this gesture his “professional wrestling entrance move,” which he claims was inspired by WWE-style theatrics, though it also, not inconveniently, looks a bit like a heil Hitler Nazi salute.


Over the past year, partly because of leaders like Schroeder and partly because of the unstoppable globalization of youth culture, the hipsterification of the German neo-Nazi scene has begun to gain steam. This winter, the German media came up with a new term, “nipster,” to describe the trend of people dressing like Brooklyn hipsters at Nazi events. Experts have noted that the German neo-Nazi presence on Tumblr and other social networking sites has become sleeker and more sophisticated. Neo-Nazi clothing has become more stylish and difficult to recognize. There’s even a vegan Nazi cooking show. “If the definition of the nipster is someone who can live in the mainstream,” Schroeder explains, “then I see it as the future of the movement.”


As head of the JN, Knape’s job is to make the NPD, and its extreme-right politics, appealing to young people (one of his biggest goals, he explains, is to “preserve German culture”) and he’s a good salesman — 5’8″, fit and dressed in a grey T-shirt and Converse-style sneakers, he wouldn’t look out of place on an American college campus. He first entered the scene when he was 13, in Magdeburg, because his brother was also “right-wing oriented” and he “started to ask himself lots of questions.” Eventually, he says, he began going to NPD demonstrations, and got more involved. Although his eyes betray a palpable aggressiveness and many of his talking points seem clearly rehearsed, for a man in charge of an organization being monitored by the Bundesverfassungsschutz — Germany’s domestic security agency — he is surprisingly soft-spoken. When he speaks he tends to curl up in his chair.

Like Schroeder, whom he sees as an acolyte, Knape wants to give “nationalism” a friendlier, cooler face (in the NPD, and many other extreme-right organizations, “nationalist” often functions as a politically acceptable euphemism for “Nazi”). For Knape, who grew up with American pop culture, the idea of policing what young members of the scene watch or listen to is silly — he’d much rather hijack it, and use it to bring young people into the fold. Michael Schaefer, the JN’s excitable 31-year-old press person, chimes in: “We’ve taken over the nipster,” he says, giddily, before catching himself. “I mean nationalist hipster, not Nazi hipster.”

Charles probably has not condemn this Nazi Hipster movement due to his affinity for the Hipster culture. Although he’s 61 years old, Charles styles himself a cool Hipster guitarist in touch with the popular culture. To admit that there are Nazi Hipsters hit too close to home for Charles. Rather than man up and admit there is a Nazi element to the Hipstser movement, Charles will be a silent coward about this topic.

    “Nipsters” sure sounds like they have something to do with boobs.

    Another “pot calling the kettle black” moment.

    I think everyone already knows. One Johnson has a pasty pudgy face with beady eyes and a greasy ponytail and the other…doesn’t. 😆

    • Arachne says:

      No, because you don’t WRITE period. No one is going to confuse you with someone with actual intellectual acumen.

    • dwells38 says:

      Periodic reminder? Really Chunk? Everyone knows you’re the fat old hysterical and treacherous idiot who destroyed his blog and his unique brand.

      And everyone knows that Charles C. Johnson is a professional writer and journalist who writes for various online publications and writes books. And no one but you thinks he’s crazed just because he’s a conservative.

  5. Pakimon says:

    Chunknac the Magnificent sees the future! 😆

  6. Pakimon says:

    And Gus continues to spam Twitter with endless retweets. It’s ten in a row at last count. 🙄 😆

  7. Pakimon says:

    If anyone ever gets tired of Gus_802’s Twitter nonsense, just buy him one of these contraptions.

    He’ll never be heard from again.

    Wait a minute, it’s “hands-free”.

    Is Gus capable of “multitasking”? If so, then never mind. 😆

    A little birdie told me that African-Americans are….wait for it….taking credit for McDaniel’s loss.

    • Octopus says:

      Wasn’t it just yesterday that Fatass breathlessly (he’s very out of shape) predicted that racist wingnuts would be crediting the African-Americans for this result?

      BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Oh, you Porky Icarus, you are always so dead-nuts wrong, it’s frightening. 😆 😯

    Chunk did right wingers get to CNN too? Are you an idiot?

    And notice this Reuters story from yesterday. Note they aren’t asking IF he left his post. They’re asking WHY?? He was on gaurd duty and walked away into the Afghan desert. That’s called desertion. The only right wingers involved here are the Taliban.

    This is almost too much. I’m tired. Somebody deal with this asshole…I need a vacation. 😆

    Chunky thinks this is neato. Because it’s always good leadership when the Preezydent mocks a majority of Americans because they don’t buy a Climate hoax clearly coming from the progressive aganda playbook.

    Of course Obungle thinks it’s all joke worthy. He’s still getting on a helicopter or jet to go play golf. Just another Obungle flip off to America.

  13. dwells38 says:

    Because women who argue are crazy. Real PC there Charles. Bachmann isn’t a demure little flower but rather a fighter, so I gues you can’t take her seriously.

    Besides, Cavuto’s issue with her wasn’t that she’s too crazy. It’s that the Boehner lawsuit and move to defund the Exec Branch is just partisan posturing and a waste of time anyway.

    You’re too stupid to even understand what you Tweet Chunk, you fat git.

      He needs to go back on drugs, and regain some sanity. This sobriety thing isn’t helping him think things through. Asswipe.

    • Arachne says:

      Nor will he. Russel Brand is supposedly soooo edgy. Of course, Brand’s worse than awful show on FX was cancelled, so I’m sure he’s harboring a grudge against anything with the Fox name. The show was popular with the Jon Stewart crowd, who thought it was “intelligent.” Tells you everything. Fatass will try to become Brand’s tweet buddy.

      • Octopus says:

        That show was the worst thing I’ve seen on TV in years. I say this, as a person who once found Brand’s irreverent comedy amusing. He tried to get “deep” on his own show, and just exposed himself as a clueless dingbat. Worst offense? Not the least bit funny.
