If I recall correctly from articles years ago, a Nazi-like movement is active in Mongolia to preserve their culture. They don't want to turn into Tibet where millions of Chinese or other foreigners are moved in and slowly have their culture dissipate over the years. I think they're a hard line group trying to preserve Mongolian independence and culture from China, Russia, and and any other foreign powers.

This could go into politics (nazi's are a political ideology) or business (permit inspection is a business activity), but probably neither, and definitely not geek. Someone confused climate science with environmentalism I'm guessing?

The Nazis did have a thing for the environment. The Hitler Youth liked to plant trees.

Can't imagine why there might be a militant extremist lashing out in Mongolia.

It's not like foreign companies are coming in, kicking the people off grazing lands, then tearing up the earth in search of gold.

And if you think that's bad, just wait until you hear what they're recommending for fertilizers..

Even in Mongolia, those in power sell out their own people to the allmighty dollar. Letting in foreign mining companies and miners and not hiring Mongolians to be miners. They are off-base on the nazi thing, but quite righteous regarding their cause.

This Nazi reverence is rather curious, I have my doubts Hitler would approve.  Then again I suppose he might respect Genghis Khan.  Anyway, at a wild guess I would suppose they don't particularly concern themselves with Jews and are more interested in driving out the Chinese.  They probably latched onto the Nazi motif because of its focus on lineage.  I wonder if they have a test for joining.  Something like well you are one quarter korean so you aren't allowed to join.  Go join the other kimchi eaters.

That's right, they're not.

You don't tear up the earth to search for gold. You tear it up after you've proven the gold is there, and the government makes a shiat-ton of money in revenues that (in an ideal world) they can spend on educating your ignorant population of herdsmen.

And there's a shiat-ton of grazing land in Mongolia - the vast majority of which has no gold under it and so can continue to be used for grazing livestock.

The entire article reads like it was written with Mad-Libs.
 
2013-07-03 07:50:32 AM  
The Nazis latched on to a new thing that was vaguely scientific (called Eugenics), massively exggerated its conclusions, folded in a little Malthusianism, anti-semitism and envy-politics - and ended up concluding that the world was doomed unless massive action was taken. This was then used to justify massive wars and genocides.

I'm glad we all learned the lessons and would never allow such a thing to happen again.

Communists rebranded themselves as environmentalists too. This is nothing new.

Just put up a wall.
 
2013-07-03 09:07:51 AM  
To murder an environmentalist for their opinions would be to come down to their level. Just explain the truth to them and shrug off their silly rants.

To be fair, they needed phony baloney jobs so they didn't have to work for a living.

" . . . it is one of several groups - others have names including Dayar Mongol (Whole Mongolia), Gal Undesten (Fire Nation) and Khukh Mongol (Blue Mongolia) . . . "

Everything will be fine until the Fire Nation attacks.

So Mongolian Neo Nazis are communists because they held conservative views?

LewDux: So Mongolian Neo Nazis are communists because they held conservative views?


More than you might think (I realize your question was basically couched in sarcasm, but still.)

The members of the People's Revolutionary Party the now, fast fading former Communist Party that ruled Mongolia until 1992) are for the most part, very nationalist and conservative.  They are very much into the law and order and "moral" issues that seem to draw most extreme conservative Republicans to that point of view.  The only notable exception is their willingness to accept abortion.

Let's not forget that the Nazi's were also very conservative when it came to social issues and personal freedoms.

In this situation, there is actually very little daylight between those in Mongolia (which is definitely a minority) who claim the Neo-Nazi mantle and those members of the People's Revolutionary Party.

BTW, the Democratic Party's candidate just one the presidency with a near 20 point lead over his nearest opponent.  He is fairly liberal and holds a degree from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.  The right-wing elements in Mongolia have now completely lost the Parliament, the Presidency and the Prime Minister's office in the last 2 election cycles.
