MetalSucks Editor Publishes Love of Nazism

Article contributed to Death Metal Underground by Cullen Toner.

Longtime MetalSucks editor and self-proclaimed snowflake Emperor Rhombus released a 1,256 word editorial professing his love for Nazi culture and aesthetics on the site’s apparently unregulated front page. The move was seen as an obvious reach to the NatSoc community as MetalSucks attempts to appease the young users of the glowingly popular 4chan image boards by creating articles to reflect the national socialist posts on /pol. The article was immediately praised by the legions of anti-Semites that frequent the site’s comment’s section as they proclaiming their support of the site’s newfound Nazi sympathy with comments like “Hitler did nothing wrong” and “(Emperor Rhombus) knows what is good for the goyim.”

jimi_hendrix_-_nazi_artifacts

An astute reader spotted this picture of Jimi Hendrix, and in the spirit of #metalgate showing us the more complex world than the good/bad binary in which commerce and ideology define it, revealed this about what’s going on in this picture:

PC police and SJWs look away now. Apparently Jimi Hendrix collected Nazi stuff. In this Retronaut photo of his 34 Montague Square flat’s wall: Luftwaffe Flying Clasp (unknown mission and grade), Krim shield, DAK/Army pith helmet eagle and national colors shields, and Mother’s Cross. To the right, a fireman’s dress bayonet with portapee. Japanese Samurai sword hilt visible above the bookshelf, too. Reckon Jimi and Lemmy talked about more than just scoring drugs.

‘Scuse me while I sieg this heil, eh, Jimi?
