ANOTHER WRITER IS PROUD TO HAVE NO FEELING FOR HIS HOMELAND OR HIS PEOPLE | 2000-07-29
In case you think I repeat "anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews" too much, let me point to recent reviews of Mel Gibson's movie, "The Patriot." In these reviews, Gibson's character is repeatedly portrayed as a Nazi type, as are his fellow patriots.
Absolutely everything, according to these reviews, is Nazi.
For example, the movie is criticized for showing atrocities which review writers say should only be blamed on Nazis!
Serious atrocities are reserved for attacking Nazis. If you blame them on anybody else, including those who actually committed them, you are anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews!
This is a new twist: if you mention atrocities and don't mention Hitler, you stink of Nazism!
Here's another one. In its continuing campaign to remove both the Confederate flag and the Confederate monument, "The State" had an editorial by a guy named Asquith. Asquith uses another aspect of the "anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews" line.
Asquith explains how he is above any feeling for the South
"My blood is patriotic, not for a place or a people (that's nationalism) , but for a constitutional order that my nation represents."
Asquith does not have to state the Establishment line as to what "nationalism" means. We have been told that many times
Nationalism = National Socialism = anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
In "CAN A MELTING POT REALLY EXPECT LOYALTY?" I discussed this form of "patriotism." Asquith is proud to say that he has no loyalty to his people or his place of birth. He only needs to be true to some words. So what if, in his opinion, somebody comes along who has a slightly better set of words? What is to keep him from betraying his country without a second's hesitation?
This condemnation of anyone who has any feeling for his people or his place of birth is supposed to be in the name of fighting Hitler. But, as I pointed out in "CAN A MELTING POT REALLY EXPECT LOYALTY?," the United States refused to enter the war against Japan until OUR SOIL was attacked and AMERICAN BLOOD spilled.
We did not begin to fight Hitler until he declared war on us.
And why did Hitler declare war on us? He said he was honoring his alliance, and taking the side of "heroic Japan." Not only was the Pacific War NOT being fought on German soil, it was literally as far away from Germany as it could be on the planet Earth. And Hitler took the side of the non-white Japanese against an overwhelmingly white America!
WE fought because our land had been violated and OUR blood spilled.
As I understand it, this makes the Americans nationalists and therefore it makes us the real Nazis in World War II! To reach liberal conclusions, you have to add some amazing twists!
Meanwhile, back here in the real world, loyalty to words is "Wordism," (May 15, 1999) and it has killed more people than a hundred Hitlers.
