Will Nazi Re-enactors Stage Fake Raid on The Atlantic?

By Jeffrey Goldberg

Josh Green has really done it now, pissing off the hypersensitive Nazi-Re-enactor-American community:

I've gotten a lot of angry emails from historical re-enactors, including some who, like Rich Iott, dress up as Nazis, most condemning me for "smearing" or "demeaning" what they insist is an admirable and even an important hobby--you see, it's all about "education." Several have demanded a retraction, which would be difficult, as Iott readily admitted to doing everything I asked him about.

This is just great. Now I'm going to have to find my fake Warsaw Ghetto weaponry, and my fake Warsaw Ghetto outerwear, and take to the sewers in order to defend my magazine from the coming make-believe Nazi onslaught.
