Jake Tapper Will Not Stand for Holocaust Jokes

Going off twitter. Let me know when the liberals joking about the Holocaust (in response to Ailes' comments) stop. All of it is awful.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck

People thought it was funny/crazy when Fox News honcho Roger Ailes said today that NPR executives are "the left wing of Nazism." (Related! Now would be a good time to remind everyone that NPR's federal funding is under 10% of its budget.) In any event, people made some jokes about NPR's Nazi programming lineup, and how stupid this all was, and now Jake Tapper has stormed off the Internet. To be fair, "being against Holocaust jokes" is sort of a low bar in standards. We'll be back with more breaking news after this commercial message. Hello, welcome back. For those still with us, Jake Tapper is back on Twitter!

no, i'm not peace-outing twitter. trying to stop a sick hashtag being pushed by people who should know better. "bags of hair" aint funny.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck

So for the record, "going off Twitter" means "not Tweeting for 24 minutes."

At first I thought that he'd be OK with Holocaust jokes as long as they come from the conservatives, but then I remembered that conservatives are incapable of making jokes of any kind.

Isn't the internet built on copper, fiber optics, and inappropriate references to Hitler?

You forgot porn.

And kittens.

My band, the Hitler Kittens, will be playing at the Bawl.

I'm pretty sure there are some DAILY SHOW clips on that pile as well.

God, if I left the Internet every time something wasn't funny, then I, uh, wouldn't get out of bed in the morning? Something like that?

deepomega (#1,720)

Then you would get a lot more done in this life!

C_Webb (#855)

Your bed is on the Internet?

I knew I felt a speed bump in the past few hours on the Interweb. And now I know it’s because someone stopped tweeting on Twitter. Thank you Jake!

BadUncle (#153)

Don't let the door hit you in the cock on your way back in.

I knew there was some reason the Internet felt less rewarding and generally awesome. Thank God Jake Tapper is back! I almost had to go home for the day.

May I just say I adore your avatar? (Sidney's, Olga, Jungle Red?)

MaryHaines (#3,666)

Thank you! Just don't bring up Crystal Allen…

In fact, the next Call of Duty takes place in the year 2015 when Tavis Smiley annexes Poland.

I wonder how the Car Talk Guys feel about this?

Next episode entirely devoted to Volkswagen.

oudemia (#177)

What a self-admiring sanctimonious twat he is. (Sigh. Yes, I am that humorless today.)

Screen Name (#2,416)

Someone should hate-retweet that.

Who elected him Fuhrer?

Flashman (#418)

He refers to them as "the liberals"?
Kinda funny for someone who got his start writing for Salon.

Also, Alex Balk went off booze.

theheckle (#621)

That's just a nasty rumor. When he sleeps, he's being fed intravenously.

drinkingclub (#6,299)

Is it true that Jake Tapper has his own nazi uniform?

ShanghaiLil (#260)

Some days they just write themselves, don't they?
