MSNBC analyst Frank Figliuzzi drew a numerical connection on Monday between neo-Naziism and the Trump administration’s decision to fly flags at half-mast until Aug. 8 in honor of the victims of a pair of mass shootings.
“The numbers 88 are very significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them the numbers 8-8 together stand for ‘Heil Hitler.’ So we’re going to be raising the flag back up at dusk on 8/8.”
“No one is thinking about this,” he added.
That’s because we aren’t deranged moonbats. Meanwhile, in the sidebar over at Ace of Spades somebody commented:
Someone should tweet the @FBI and ask them to endorse or refute the theory of their former head of the Counterintelligence Division that the date of August 8th is automatically Nazi numerology, even when it just appears on the calendar.
The FBI should also be apprised that their credibility with future juries depends on their answer on this. If FBI “experts” believe in secret “numerologies” involving August 8, then I think juries can pretty much discount any testimony from FBI agents or “experts” going forward.
They might also want to tell us how many chiefs they have who are around-the-bend conspiracy theorists. Is that a prerequisite to be head of a division in the FBI, or will they train you to be a conspiracy theorist if you don’t have experience already?
Best and the brightest, everyone. Best and the brightest!
