Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, April 15, 2017

The war began when a fascist party and its armband-clad leader led a putsch. Antifascists mobilized in response. Threats of violence ensued. Then the Rocky Mountain Fur Con canceled all future events. The Fur Con is an annual summit in Denver, Colorado, for "furries," people who present themselves as animals, from donning full-body fur suits to adopting "fursonas" for their character. And just as in the rest of America, a lot of furries resemble Nazis lately. ... While the #AltFurry hashtag grew in popularity at the tail end of 2016 and into 2017, a left-wing movement rose to meet them. The antifa furry movement coalesced around a rallying cry of "Nazi Furs --- Off," and began organizing to block perceived Nazis from furry gatherings.

Furries like to do it while pretending they're nailing animals.

"and the discovery of a sex offender on the Fur Con board"

Least surprising sentence in the article.

This reminds of the Holocaustals in the Church of the Subgenius. In the debate over what to do with the normals after X-day (enslave them or exterminate them), the Holocaustals where for extermination. They wore a red armband with a white circle, in it a black swastika made of four pipes.

I'll try to find a graphic for you.

This seems to be it, only it's an Illuminati symbol made of pipes:

I wonder if the furries have anything like that.

Dude! This is an awesome story! It has gems like this:

"All the stories about ‘oh, we closed because I'm a sex offender,' ‘we closed because of tax evasion,' no," Emery said. "We closed because of the violence."

Ending with this:

"I'm really furry," he said. "I don't see human problems."

This is funny but scary at the same time. And he sounds like a "real world" nazi... Which sort of makes it even funnier and scarier.

This is like when I woke up to gay vampires. I was like, is that supposed to be scary?

A furry Nazi. Really.

Pure gold.

"I will no longer continue to subject my staff and our community to the lies, hate, violence and slander that was disseminated by a small, vocal minority."
If the statement was vague about who it considered to be the "vocal minority" spreading "lies, hate, violence and slander," Emery was not. He told The Daily Beast that Deo's joke about punching a Nazi, and not the threat of a gun led police to declare Fur Con a security risk.
"First of all, the person who [made the gun threat] wasn't a Furry Raider, and second of all, if it was, all she said was it would be funny if somebody did bring a gun shot you," Emery said, adding that, "I don't think that would be funny, I think that would be tragic."

Fur real.

Illinois furry nazis? Where are Jake and Elwood when you need them?

Anyone else floored by how long the article was? The Beast wrote more about freaks in animal costumes than Woodward and Bernstein wrote about Watergate. I'm thinking it must have struck close to home for the author.
