Jan Brewer's Dad Did Not Die 'Fighting the Nazis,' No Matter What She Says
America's bravest Fighter of Mexicans, Arizona governor Jan Brewer, just can't stop talking about all the good reasons to round up brown people and kill them. After all, didn't theNazisround up all the Jews and Catholics and Queers and Other Minorities and killthem? Exactly. Oh wait, but the Nazis were the Bad Guys? Jeez this is totally confusing. Okay, so Nazis should be hunted likeMexicansare hunted? This is starting to make sense -- especially to Jan Brewer, who knows quite a lot about the sacrifices people make while fighting Nazis. Her father used to do that! Hell, hedieddoing that, which is super brave, in Nazi Germany. Only this is just a completely made-up bullshit lie and Jan Brewer should be buried alive beneath the Holocaust Museum.
"Knowing that my father died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany, that I lost him when I was 11 because of that . . . and then to have them call me Hitler's daughter. It hurts. It's ugliness beyond anything I've ever experienced."
But her dad died a decade after World War II, of lung cancer, and the closest he came to "fighting the Nazi regime in Germany" was working in a weapons plant in Nevada during the war.
Brewer's press people are now sayingof coursethat's what happened, and Brewer very clearly meant that her dad worked in a weapons factory and was on disability afterward for respiratory problems he developed working in the munitions factory -- just like Indiana Jones, basically.
