Stop the War Coalition’s Nazi-Style Propaganda

On the left a cartoon taken from the website of the Socialist Workers Party front-group the “Stop the War” Coalition, on the right the front cover of a 1941 Nazi propaganda magazine. An Uncle Sam caricature with a hooked nose and clawed hands eating his victims – doesn’t take a genius to work out what the guys at “Stop the War” are getting at. Ironic that a “progressive” organisation would use such age-old imagery…

        The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt.” People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance.”

        – Cicero , 55 BC

        So, evidently we’ve learned nothing in the past 2,067 years.

      Sssssshhh! You’re not supposed to remind people that they called themselves “National Socialists”! As well, you’re not supposed to remind people about Francis Parker Yockey, an anti-Zi*onist of the 1950’s (and friend of Oswald Mosley), who proposed a “Redshirt-Brownshirt Alliance,” i.e. a coalition of the Far Left and the so-called Far Right on issues of common interest. Bad form, that; can’t be allowed– rattles the cages of too many academic commies!

    But can’t forget how odious evan davies is. When reporting a couple of newspaper stories about the weather which gave temperatures in fahrenheit. He couldn’t resist converting to centigrade and comment about the use of the old measures. The BBC will never stop trying to undermine every last part of British culture.

          Don't believe the propaganda says:

          Germany made all efforts to avert war many times during the late 1930s. Read/watch Pat Buchanan’s article/book/interview on this.

          Just remember, Germany had territory inside Poland, the Polish-Danzig corridor was really German but Hit ler didn’t even demand that back – think of Berlin after the war and how the Western allies had a corridor to West Berlin. It’s why there had to be an airlift. Second, remember that the USSR ‘invaded’ Poland at the same time as Germany. Britain and France did not declare war on the USSR in 1939. Why not?

          Sometimes strategists sacrifice assets for longer term gains. One has to ask, ‘what did Nat ional Soci alism, properly understood as statism, actually lose in WWII?’. It was a war against ‘Je w ish’ Bolshevism/anarchism. The homeland of Je ws in Europe was Poland and Western USSR, we know form the historical record that they were the ones who ran Bolshevist USSR and the Comintern (COMmunist INTERNational), but that was quite different in referent to the ‘Russian’ ‘Old Labour’ Soviet Union, as shown by the purges in the 1930s and policy in Spain in the 1930s. This should be born in mind when thinking about the Danzig problem in 1939 I suggest.

          http://avalon.law.yale.edu/wwii/ylbk105.asp

          The war between Britain/France and Germany in Europe was incited by vested interests. Whose? Britain lost its empire and was effectively bankrupted by it. The nation which economically benefited was anarchistic USA which was shortly in a Cold War with the statist USSR and shortly after, the PRC. Plus ca change.

          I suggest you learn some history instead of repeating propaganda.

          The confusion is that people don’t understand what right-wing comprises… Hit ler was in fact left wing, a national soci alist.
