- OR, WOULD YOU LIKE A LITTLE SHARIA WITH THAT?
Hello Americans. Do you like being called ‘Americans’? How would you like, in the very near future, to start being called Nazis? Would that be so bad? After all, you have been called racists, homophobes and everything else in recent times. The question is, will ‘Nazis’ be the appellation that finally ticks you off royally and instills a little patriotic fervor in your blood?
While we are all aware of the rise of the Nazis to power in Germany in the early- to- mid 20th century , and all the grief that accompanied it, the defining thing about it was that it was National Socialism, not merely ‘nationalism’. And although the lines are often blurred by the pundits and the propagandists, there is nothing inherently evil about ‘nationalism’ in the sense of allegiance to one’s country and the desire to see its sovereignty, legal structures, institutions and traditions maintained.
The current influx of Muslim immigrants to Germany and other European countries has brought with it fears of a diminishment or outright obliteration of national identity. This has resulted in demonstrations of a patriotic bent in Germany, most recently in Dresden. A British publication recently offered a description of what is gong on over there and took pains to link by dark innuendo and loose association the growing German displeasure with the dilution of their culture and their personal fortunes to some kind of Hitlerian fervor.
Its members have been dubbed the “pinstriped Nazis” and they refer to their demonstrations as “evening strolls” through German cities. But on Monday night, an estimated 15,000 people joined Pegida, or Patriotic Europeans Against Islamisation of the West, in a march through Dresden carrying banners bearing slogans such as “Zero tolerance towards criminal asylum seekers”, “Protect our homeland” and “Stop the Islamisation”.
Lutz Bachmann, the head of Pegida, a nascent anti-foreigner campaign group, led the crowds, either waving or draped in German flags, in barking chants of “Wir sind das Volk”, or “We are the people”, the slogan adopted by protesters in the historic “Monday demonstrations” against the East German government in the runup to the fall of the Berlin Wall.
“Its members have been dubbed the ‘pinstriped Nazis.” Doesn’t say who ‘dubbed’ them, and of course it doesn’t matter. It was just useful to get that slur in there as the Guardian goes on to describe the ‘rightwing extremist’ element of the anti-Islamization groups.
Kate Connolly and the Guardian used the term “barking” when the people of Germany, including ‘rightwing extremists and ‘pinstriped Nazis’ chanted “We are the people.” Gee, doesn’t that hit home? As well as racists and homophobes, the term ‘right wing extremists’ gets slung about haphazardly all the time in what passes for political discourse in America, doesn’t it? And of course if you dare declare that you are ‘the people”, you are “barking.”
Well here’s a little news item that’s likely to make the State-Run media in the US push the envelope on the name-calling issue. The Obama administration has steadfastly refused to take a stand against the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence on our shores. The same Muslim Brotherhood that has been condemned by Muslim countries as being a fomenter of civil unrest and yes, even terrorism.
Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates recently banned the Brotherhood as a terrorist group.
The Obama administration, and his State-run media, don’t want you to believe your lying eyes and your lying ears when you see Muslim countries denouncing the very groups that Obama invites into the White House to chat and dine with, or who have family members with security clearances and access to the highest US officials (See ‘Huma Abedin’). Even your Repblican Speaker of the House deigned to castigate patriot House members who had the audacity to demand an investigation into Muslim Brotherhood influence in the US Government.
Seventy years after the Allies destroyed the National Socialists in Germany (and a big chunk of Dresden in the process) are there ‘neo-Nazis’ in Germany? Of course there are . There are ‘neo’ Nazis in the United States, Australia, South America, probably even Uganda. Just like there are satanists. Get over it, Guardian. But get ready for it America. Because while it has been fashionable to call conservative patriots ‘rightwing extremists’ in the United States for some time, til now the term “Nazis” has been used sparingly and infrequently. Look for that to change when the US press starts taking its cue from the European multiculturalist press. Your patriotic fervor will either be chilled or ramped up, depending on your circumstance when your desire to nip in the bud the Islamization of America, otherwise known as the acceptance of Sharia, expresses itself in ways unacceptable to Obama or the Obama press.
You might be ‘dubbed’ a “pinstriped Nazi” or something. Even if you don’t wear pinstripes. But always remember: nationalism is not ‘National Socialism’ and if the Islamists reject loudly the appellation of terrorists, you should also loudly reject the appellation of ‘Nazi’. Because it’s coming. Wait for it.
