Nick Griffin and the BNP have been enjoying more popularity these days. Griffin was recently on BBC’s Question Time, have a gander:
Several news outlets are reporting that there is outrage over Nick Griffin’s statements comparing retired generals to Nazi war criminals:
He said: “Along with the political leadership of Nazi Germany, the chiefs of staff of the German army, Alfred Jodl and Wilhelm Keitel, were also charged with waging aggressive war.
“Sir Richard and Sir Mike fall squarely into this bracket and they must not think that they will escape culpability for pursuing the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
The officers to whom Griffin refers had criticized the leader of the BNP for his use of military imagery in political campaigns. The response to the comments:
Charles at LGF seems to be on the same page as Jimmy Carter when it comes to Republican criticism of Democrats. Both think it stems from racism. Here’s what LGF posts about an anecdote told by Congressman Roy Blunt at an event for the Family Research Council:
At the Family Research Council’s 2009 Values Voter Summit, Republican Congressman Roy Blunt (R-MO) blows the racist dog whistle with a “joke” about “eliminating the monkey problem.”
First of all, (more…)
It’s the first 9/11 anniversary that America has seen without the commander-in-chief who kept us safe since that horrible day.
This morning I linked to a transcript of last night’s Obama speech to the Congress. However, I now have the time and am watching the video of the address on C-Span. Why? Not because I think Obama will stray too far from his teleprompter, and besides, his blunders aren’t funny when they are cold, calculated lies. No, the real reason I’m watching Obama recite his tired rhetoric is because of what I heard as I drove to work about a South Carolina Representative by the name of Joe Wilson. When Obama addressed the issue of illegal immigrants, Rep. Wilson shouted “You Lie!” when Mr. Obama played it fast and loose with the facts. But let’s be clear, Rep. Wilson had absolutely, positively NO problem with the blatant lies Obama was spewing, I’m sad to say that the outburst was, in reality, racism.
This is the most succinct explanation that I’ve read on the web and it captures the beliefs of the one caller on C-Span’s Washington Journal who brought this incident up this morning:
Like many racist White folks that are just enraged by the mere presence of a Black man in White House, Rep. Joe Wilson has clearly lost his mind.
Unfortunately the real issue with Rep. Wilson is his inability to control his clear hatred of a Black man as President of the United States and who is also his boss. It is this racist thinking and behavior that endangers our President and the very principles upon which this country was founded.
Exactly right. Not only is it racist to criticize the President… no matter what he says or does. But, any who do speak their mind are clearly a crazy and dangerous breed of racist.
Oh, and by the way, it is 100% true that Obama is the “boss” of every other politician in the nation and, incidentally, he’s the king of the USA.
The video on C-Span does not capture Pelosi’s reaction. Scarlet at Ironic Surrealism (v3.0) posts a youtube version, check it out:
It’s sad that this man works in Fairfax County.
About 100 years ago V.I. Lenin formulated what was to become the Russian Bolshevik party, a Marxist regime that combined massive propaganda campaigns of bogus economic, social and philosophical ideology (Marxism) with violence and terror. Starting in the 1920s, with Joseph Stalin as leader of the Bolsheviks and Communist Russia, citizens were intimidated and, in order to avoid the secret police, reported any “suspicious” behavior of their friends, neighbors and family members. The result would often be the disappearance of the suspect.
Obama must have studied his Stalinist play-book when coming up with this:
The White House raised privacy concerns this week among those who oppose efforts to pass healthcare reform legislation. In a blog post earlier this week the White House asked supporters to report “fishy” information they receive regarding the debate on healthcare reform by forwarding emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The White House says it is enlisting the help of supporters to stay aware of the propaganda and disinformation that is being spread by opponents so they can address concerns and clarify the truth regarding the proposed legislation.
What could top Obama’s homage to Stalin? Why, nothing less than Medvedev following in his master’s footsteps by rewriting history and criminalizing criticism of one of the biggest mass murderers ever:
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has announced his plans to criminalize historical “revisionism.”
Specifically, Medvedev wants to make “questioning the Soviet victory in World War II” a criminal offense; he also appointed a commission to work toward “counteracting attempts to falsify history that are to the detriment of the interests of Russia.”
In Newsweek, Stalin’s Children author Owen Matthews explains:
Russia’s schoolchildren are being indoctrinated with the greatness of Stalin and stories of how the Red Army was welcomed as liberators by the peoples of Eastern Europe.
Both Putin and Medvedev seek to create a new, great Russia, and to that end, they believe it needs a great history, unsullied with mass murder and secret alliances with Hitler.
This 21st century Bolshevism is starting to scare me.
