America's Nazi Party Are Also Grammar Nazi's

The neo-Nazi group is advocating correct spelling and grammar on Twitter

If you've ever been called a grammar 'Nazi' before, it usually referred to your staunch support of correct spelling and grammar.

But for the American Nazi Party, they apparently take it as seriously as their fondness for national socialism.

Or, at least, that's what they're striving for.

On May 31st, the Party tweeted “It really isn't that difficult to use correct spelling and grammar. Be professional and disciplined in everything that you do for the cause."


The tweet is more of what you'd expect from an academic body urging kids to be concise rather than something coming from a group of hate mongers. Nonetheless, it seems the American Nazi Party are also America's "Grammar Nazi" Party.

Though it appears they can't even preach proper spelling correctly.

As Slate points out, on their website's FAQ, the U.S. Nazis state: “NS are certainly NOT "supremacists", rather we are SEPERATISTS - we believe that RACIAL SEPERATION is best for all concerned.”

You'll notice that the words "separatists" and "separation" are spelled wrong.

Needless to say, the incident brings ridicule to the organization more than anything else. An important question, however, is how Twitter even allows a Nazi party to remain active on its site, brandishing a swastika as their profile picture.

Yet another reason why Twitter has been hailed as the ideal social media platform for racism, hate and intolerance.
