HotWingConspiracy: dittybopper: HotWingConspiracy: AverageAmericanGuy: hitlersbrain: Cid_Highwind: So, what exactly about the Nazis was particlarly right or left wing?

Fear as the primary means of political control: - Right.

The excessive use of force against it's own people: - Right.

Crippling the many to hold up the elite few: - Right

Setting people against each other with racist, sexist hate speech: - Right

Huh. Who would have known Communist North Korea was so right wing?

They're a democracy, you fool. Says so right in the name.

Ah, but it also has the negatory "People's" in it. Whenever you see "People's" paired with "Democratic", it's the *OPPOSITE* of a democracy. Think of it like a double positive equaling a negative.

EvilRacistNaziFascist: The statement on page 5 of the slideshow is interesting: "National socialism can't be elected or begged for. It can only be achieved through the path of revolution." Take away the word "national" and you're left with a remark that anyone on the hard Left -- including those types overrepresented in movements like Occupy Wall Street -- would be proud to stand by.

This is more proof, as if any were needed, that both fascism and communism -- the latter of which frequently calls itself socialism, as in the acronym "USSR" -- are equally inimical to free societies; but in North America we don't have to worry about tiny fringes of neo-Nazis nearly as much as we do about hardcore leftists yearning to make a final end-run around democracy (i.e. because the brainwashed "masses" keep voting for the wrong parties like Republicans, Conservatives, etc.)


Dafuq?

Which end-run around democracy would that be again? Remind me of the horrible leftist boogeyman rampaging around the United States. Remind me about the major threats to conservatism...

Crewmannumber6: timujin: "Far from the dangers"? 25 miles is "far"?.

I'm 25 miles from Over The Rhine in Cincinnati and might as well be on another planet.


over the rhine is the best ghettotastic place in ohio.

The weirdest part about that area: it should be the most expensive place in cinncinnati. Its right next to downtown, the architecture of many of the old buildings is super cool, totally walkable neighborhoods... its shameful that ohio let it go to pieces.

Then again, most of ohio is in pieces. Of the whole Cinci Dayton Columbus triangle, seems like that aside from "German Village" in Cinci, most of the cities are in terrible shape and everzone just lives in the soulless burbs, driving between bob evans and wendys.

And yes, I love making fun of the place because im so glad I don't have to go there anymore.

Are there any ideas to resurrect over the rhine, or is everyone just waiting for the place to totally implode, raze it, and turn it into more wendys and bob evanses? Actually wait... itll be new, so instead of wendys and bob evanses itll be Panera and chipotle.

SkunkWerks: GentlemanJ: An intelligent revival of European Nationalism would be one that abandoned antisemitism, embraced Israel as an outpost of European culture in the Middle East, and encouraged the Israelis to expel all Palestinians and otherwise embrace strict nationalist policies

So, abandon anti-semitism and adopt anti-muhammadanism.

Got it.


...never did quite understand why the abandonment of one bad thing has to mean the adoption of something no better, but okay.

Shiny!


in a fascist ideology, you need a black sheep to put all the blame on.
In nazi-ideology, the jews where called both comunist and capitalist pigs.
I still wonder why they were so dedicaced to eradicate the jews, because if they had succeded, they woul have run out of people to blame for everything.
I'm just to logical to ever be a good nazi.

EvilRacistNaziFascist: SmitetheRighteous: Probably the most amusing and disturbing aspect of the last couple of years is Tea Partiers calling Democrats and various liberally-inclined folks "Nazis" when back on Planet Reality, National Socialism is nothing but a right-wing movement.

Of course realizing that for some morans would require increasing their wordiness by orders of magnitude.

Eh, as a right-winger I would agree that there's no point in calling leftists "Nazis" when the fact remains that leftists have historically killed far more people than the Nazis ever did (about 80 million vs. 12 million, respectively).


Eh, that's just because they had a bigger playing field. If the Nazis had conquered the USSR, they'd have put Uncle Joe to shame when it came to mass slaughter.

The difference is that Communists were led by gangsters with bad economic ideas, so mass poverty was added to the widescale killing that gangster dictators need to stay in power. The Nazis were led by gangsters whose ethos was based on genocide. That was the whole point of national socialism, to exterminate or subjugate other "races," (the nation in national socialism was die Volksdeutsche, including ethnic Germans in other countries, not the ethnically mixed German nation-state).

Today, most racists would consider the "races" the Nazis wanted to subjugate or kill (Slavs and other "Alpines," and "Mediterraneans") as just white people. So I guess that's progress.

This- this is some high-quality trolling right here.

I see you are using "trolling" in the classical Farkian sense of meaning "the formulation of an argument that I cannot possibly hope to refute logically, so my only recourse is to ridicule it and to hope it goes away".


Ok i'll pretend this isnt trolling. So skinheads practice consensus based general assemblies like OWS? OWS has murdered and assaulted their political opponents? Or is the anti democratic part saved for phase two?

On-Off: I still wonder why they were so dedicaced to eradicate the jews, because if they had succeded, they woul have run out of people to blame for everything.


It's not the dedication you have to wonder at, it's the scheduling.

But as we well know, if it hadn't been them, it'd be someone else anyway. Blame of that nature needs not a well-suited scapegoat no more than it needs a rationalization.

What it needs is a marketer.

EvilRacistNaziFascist: Paris1127: Nazi crimes happen in parts of Germany other than Saxony, like this nationwide spree. It may have something to do with having been oppressed for all those years by the East Germans; the Wall was called something like the "Fascist Protection Barrier."

Funny story, In the summer of 1989 I was visiting my family in Belfast, including my granny who was a genuine old- school Communist and she and I got into a huge row about the Berlin Wall (still standing at that time, of course); when I asked her why, if the Communist system was superior, they needed to imprison their citizens she furiously replied that the Wall was there to keep the capitalist Westerners out! When I made fun of her for saying such a ridiculous thing she actually physically attacked me, tho' not in a way to do much damage of course -- I was 18 at the time and she was 60ish. She was a crazy old b*tch (tho' God rest her soul for all that), but it has to be said that her response to losing an argument wasn't very much different from that of the more Leftish contributors on Fark.

Medic Zero: It boggles the mind that people actually believe the kind of crap you just spouted.

EvilRacistNaziFascist: Another well-thought-out, elaborate, and intricately reasoned rebuttal from the Left. Do you people have anything other than snark and insults to offer? I ask in all sincerity.


Ok, I'll bite.

I was part of the Occupy movement, and yes, there were socialists there. There were also Ron Paul supporters, liberals, leftists, libertarians, fiscal conservatives, moderates, anarchists, and even some former Tea Party members. Those who would agree with the "path of revolution" statement would primarily be the anarchists. I'm not sure I would describe those folks as being part of the "hard left", since their primary argument is that there should be no political or governmental system at all, that people should be left alone to govern their own behavior. Everyone else pretty much embraced the ideas of non-violence, even rejecting property damage.

I agree that fascism and communism (as opposed to socialism) are inimical to free societies. But then again, so is laissez faire capitalism. Any organized system for governing human behavior has an element of coercion in it (the anarchists are right about that). But it's still better than the alternatives the anarchists and libertarians envision.

The major point of disagreement (i.e.: where Medic Zero says you were spouting crap) was with this idea that hardcore leftists are yearning to replace democracy.

First, the question is who you call hardcore leftists. Does that include libertarians? Liberals? Anarchists? Democrats? Socialists? And do you know how to recognize the difference? I ask in all seriousness, because political discourse in this country has degenerated to the point where Obama is called a Socialist by a large number of conservatives, so for all I know you might consider him as a hard-core leftist.

Second, liberals are frequently criticized for defending the "other" over the core or traditional -- the Muslim over the Christian, the Mexican over the American, gay rights over "traditional" marriage, the ALCU over the authorities. Why would a group of people who pride themselves on accepting a variety of opinions want to do an end run around a process that allows people to express their views? What's more, history and demographics are on the side of the liberal. The US is becoming more diverse every day. Whites just recently became a minority of births in this country. Rural populations continue to shrink as urban populations grow. Discrimination against gays is increasingly unacceptable both socially and legally.

Conservatives complain that the world they know and love is under attack from new ideas and strange people and customs. They are fighting to preserve it. So it is natural that they would try to prevent the people bringing those new ideas in from having a voice in how things are done. Thus, they lead the effort to ensure that non-citizens are excluded from the voter rolls, even at the expense of dropping off some citizens.

Now, if by "hard core leftists" you mean only the true extremists, who want to see all government eliminated, or communism established, then fine. Those people exist. They are very few in number.

They are vastly outnumbered by those on the right who wish to see this become a Christian Nation, with an established religion, the Bible as the source of moral authority and the foundation for our legal system, schools teaching religious doctrine rather than science, and religious tests for political office. All of those things do an end-run around democracy, too.

EvilRacistNaziFascist: fusillade762: EvilRacistNaziFascist: because the brainwashed "masses" keep voting for the wrong parties like Republicans, Conservatives, etc

How do you explain people who aren't rich voting for a party that only wants to make rich people richer?

Because things are more complicated than dreamed of in your simplistic analysis. You could just as easily ask of Democratic voters, "how do you explain people who are white voting for a party that routinely awards spoils to favoured minority groups?" See how easy it is to create stereotypes?

My own opinion (as a foreigner) of the Republicans BTW is that they are only marginally less destructive to the economy and society of the US than the Democrats are, but then again I am making this criticism from the perspective of what the mainstream media in its wisdom is pleased to call "the far right". I happen to believe that the US under its current political system is f*cked no matter who wins its elections, because both parties are in favour of spending inconceivably vast amounts of money they cannot possibly repay, while at the same time encouraging (to varying degrees) a multiplicity of mutually- incompatible special interest groups to seek their own advantage at the expense of the country as a whole. On the day when there will finally be no more money to pay off the special interests, the US will collapse under its own weight; but after that it will hopefully be able to rise again as a great country on the strength of its hard work and resources. Let's hope that the collapse and subsequent renewal happen soon.

EvilRacistNaziFascist: The statement on page 5 of the slideshow is interesting: "National socialism can't be elected or begged for. It can only be achieved through the path of revolution." Take away the word "national" and you're left with a remark that anyone on the hard Left -- including those types overrepresented in movements like Occupy Wall Street -- would be proud to stand by.

This is more proof, as if any were needed, that both fascism and communism -- the latter of which frequently calls itself socialism, as in the acronym "USSR" -- are equally inimical to free societies; but in North America we don't have to worry about tiny fringes of neo-Nazis nearly as much as we do about hardcore leftists yearning to make a final end-run around democracy (i.e. because the brainwashed "masses" keep voting for the wrong parties like Republicans, Conservatives, etc.)


...Um, I know absolutely no one on the left who would agree with that statement. And I know quite a lot of people who would abhor that. The theory of the left is that social nonviolent protest is inherently part of the system, and working within the system is at the moment the best option.

The Tea Party does actually use that slogan, though. They like 'refresh the tree of liberty', too.

hitlersbrain: Cid_Highwind: So, what exactly about the Nazis was particlarly right or left wing?

Fear as the primary means of political control: - Right.

The excessive use of force against it's own people: - Right.

Crippling the many to hold up the elite few: - Right

Setting people against each other with racist, sexist hate speech: - Right


I don't see the point of explaining why or how communism is extreme left-wing and fascism is extreme right-wing. Anyone who cannot see why this is true is not going to be convinced by a bulleted list.

Although I will agree that dictators tend to muddy the waters, by creating governments that are just plain I-shoot-you. It's hard to distinguish between the two systems once it boils down to a lunatic strongman in charge.

Well, Hitler and Stalin couldn't decide whose brand of socialism was better, so they had a kill the Poles contest to see who was right.

pacmanner: Interesting article cuz I'm an ex-pat living in Leipzig. I'm from Texas and I am Hispanic but I have never had any issues in the 4 years that I have lived here. I do live in an "anti-fa" part of town however. You do see signs and graffiti around town with anti-fascist slogans and stuff like that. Every once in a while I do get a "Wo kommst du?" question and everytime I answer Texas cuz for some reason they love the idea of Texas and cowboys and Indians.


"Tex, ma'am? Tell me, Tex-ma'am, awe you in show business?"

"Nope!"

"Woher" kommst du? "Wo" kommst du would be "where are you coming?"

You know who else like that quote?

Thomas Jefferson, that's who.

He also foresaw Fark in that same letter:

"The want of facts worth communicating to you has occasioned me to give a little loose to dissertation. We must be contented to amuse, when we cannot inform."
