Fascist parties always have lame snacks.

ARg, if I wasn't at work I would post a picture of Bilbo with a Hiter mustache.
Can a fellow Farker out there make this dream come true?

Put on the ring, Fascists!

HP check your bowels.

Bugtrue, but the dancing goes all night.

Whats the difference between a trampoline and a facist?

You take your boots off when you jump on a trampoline.

What's the difference between a Fascist and a Socialist?

The color of the uniform.

Time for my NMA reference, I believe:

"I believe in justice!
I believe in vengence!
I believe in getting the bastard!
Getting the bastard! Getting the bastard!"

Not quite Bookman, Facism is racist acondones the murder of ethnic minorities, wants everyone to be in the army beliveis in the idea of one supreme leader etc etc

Still as you obviouly know nothing about either whats the point.
 
2002-01-18 10:29:37 AM  
Oh and we dont wear unforms either.

But nice try.

there are usually SOME hot girls at Facist parties, but they always leave right away, so i always end up sleeping some ugly girl by the end of the night. but Facist girls make some mean oatmeal...
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

WTF? Certainly they couldn't have run out of ways to use God in their ideology? So now they go to using better fiction?
 
2002-01-18 10:46:42 AM  
Harmonia, you are a socialist piglet! I knew it ever since I laid eyes on your babble. Socialism is a pipe dream my friend, for the masses of bleating sheep can only be ruled by fear of death (China) or entertainment (America).
You are a lowly proletariat and I will oil the gears of capitalism with your blood. ;o)

What is the difference between the IRA, the PLO, and an HMO?

You can't negotiate with an HMO....

I am a socialist Frolixo, proud of it as it happens.

Like the site BTW

A fascist state is one where they'll tolerate the deaths of thousands of innocents, but not a dictator who likes to appear in public without pants.
 
2002-01-18 11:14:24 AM  
Well I'm a fascist, but without the racism. The only difference is that I don't have any power. But I do have a small pig and oppress him with my iron rule. (mums the word, but I fear a uprising)
I have a hat and boots. It's all about the fashion!

Actually the last time I was in Italy was in '96 and there was a big nazi and facist movement...I was in the deep south though which is quite diffrent than the north....if you didn't already know.

I am The Goatman. I live in a state of Goaliness and genial gentility, and enjoy playing the lute, having parties and taking drugs. Who's in?
 
2002-01-18 11:17:36 AM  
I also live in a state of Goatliness.
 
2002-01-18 11:26:39 AM  
I thought a fascist was a person who influences fashion. Go figure.
 
2002-01-18 11:28:29 AM  
Is Cleanliness next to goatlessness?

duscuss.
 
2002-01-18 11:29:29 AM  
Is Goatman actually Pan?

Does Fark realise that by accepting a proportionately frequent number of articles from the Guardian and the Independent, it is becoming the unwitting pawn in propaganda and plans for world domination of the tree-leaning, hand-loving, left-hugging, terrorist-wringing, liberal British media! And its pinko, tree-porking, towel-cleansing, terrorist-exfoliating liberal agenda!

Of course it doesn't, it's those deceitful, subversive, pesky liberal mind games at work! Jeepers, Carruthers!

And we sing / spill the soy beans / before they / KILL US ALL.

Wasn't the last fascist ruler of italy found on a fishhook?

Sounds more like Germany or the UK.

Haven't we already decided that The Independent is a worthless piece of drivel? Who the fark is posting links from this site? Hang them up by the yardarm!
 
2002-01-18 11:38:04 AM  
And they mock my Peguin movement.

Look out farkers, here we come.
 
2002-01-18 11:45:23 AM  
Stargely enough oh right-wingers the Independent is the paper of record in the UK

That means that it is considered by the British Library to be the least biased paper and is therefore the one stored and used as an archive for the British library.

Still if you dont agree why not just attack the source, saves all that tireing thinking.
 
2002-01-18 11:45:39 AM  
Ok, I give. Just what the hell does the Hobbit have to do with the fascist party?
 
2002-01-18 11:46:53 AM  
Well, maybe the Italians should check out some other forms of government. Fascism did not work out to well for them. A large percentage of them just like to chill out and ride their motor scooters about. (Eddie Izzard covered this topic in Dressed to Kill, check it out)
 
2002-01-18 11:47:21 AM  
DAMN those jack booted hobits.....aim for the head if they come through your door.

2002-01-18 11:48:35 AM  
"Of record?" I might believe that of The Times or The Telegraph, but this one seems shady. Harmonia is just trying to justify passing off bubble-headed crap as "fact," and using the bit about living in the UK as further "proof."
 
2002-01-18 11:48:51 AM  
Godliness is next to Goatliness in the dictionary.

Probably.
 
2002-01-18 11:55:24 AM  
Jph sorry mate
Broadsheet papers in the UK:

Times-Conservative
Guardian-Liberal
Telegraph-Right-wing conservative (in the British sense)
Independent-Independent, as the name implies.

Check out the various websites,

BTW I am unlikely to make stuff up on here, firstly there are enough brits to correct me and secondly Fb et al would make my life a misery if I did.

The TImes of London used to hold that title, but it was changed when Rupert Murdoch took it over.
 
2002-01-18 11:58:31 AM  
Harmonia's right. Well, he's a leftie, but he's right. I mean, he's right in that he's correct and left it at that.

If you see what I mean.

About the papers.

*goes back to the bar*

Goatliness?....is that goat sex
 
2002-01-18 12:21:42 PM  
What is Godliness, AlgertMan?
What is cleanliness?
What is friendliness?

Gods. That must be one of the most regular, obvious, uninspired and dull attempts at trolling on this board about my name. Try and be a little diverse, being mentally adept is so important!
 
2002-01-18 12:24:41 PM  
Hmmm, Gulag. Do I get oyster crackers with that?
 
2002-01-18 12:27:36 PM  
I always thought the true path to Godliness was friendship with clean goats. Have I been wrong all these years?
 
2002-01-18 12:29:46 PM  
The true path to Goatliness is friendship with clean gods.

This is assuming you have followed the Rules of Stuff and Frequented the Bath of Things.
