I have been posting on the EDL thread today and find myself increasingly gobsmacked by the casual Nazism of one poster in particular. He'll claim to have been an English patriot but every post he makes smacks not of the golden whimsical age of British democracy with a hey nonny no; rather it smacks of post-Weimar Germany and lets all go down the bierkeller for a ruck with some Reds and Jews. I would like to offer up a vote of thanks to In Vino Veritas. Or as I like to think of him Sir Roderick Spode to the life. His rhetoric seems to cry out for eagles and standards and banners, black shirts and Sam Brownes and shaven headed ignoramuses saluting the foes their grandfathers and fathers fought. It is all Magna Carta, Bill of Rights and ancient liberties on the surface but one cannot help but feel that totalitarianism, ethnic cleansing and thought-crime is not very far below the veneer. Thanks to IVV, it is so much easier to reject the "Nick Griffin's got a point" and "it's all them Muslims' fault" lazy arguments after listening to you. I would rather spend a little extra time trying to work it out in less tabloidy, nay comic book, style than commit the crime of taking this bunch at face value. They really are like SA-a-likes. Luckily they are still in the developmental stage that the Nazis were in at the time of the bier Halle putsch. I can but hope that they will not achieve any more popularity or power than they currently dream of. I'll hazard a guess that like so many fuhrers and duces over the years, that you too are a corporal. Yet one who feels he should have been a sergeant or possibly a field marshal. Is that a baton in your knapsack or are you just glad of my attention? If those liberals of my faint acquaintance could see or hear IVV, then perhaps they would see why I get so angry when they accuse the ordinary British officer or soldier of institutional fascist and racist leanings. Not even close.
