Quote# 131408

American Family Radio host Sandy Rios told listeners today that the American Right are unfairly compared to Nazis, because while they are similar to Nazis in the fact that they love their country, they differ in the fact that they don’t try to use their nationalism to commit mass murder.

On this morning’s episode of Rios’ radio show, Center for Security Policy president and anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney spoke with Rios about the Southern Poverty Law Center classifying him as a hate group leader and the current coordinated right-wing campaign against the SPLC. Rios echoed Gaffney’s criticism of the group and attempted to explain why she believes that members of the American Right are wrongly likened to Nazis.

“The whole attribution of being on the Right to being Nazis was people who were loyal to country, and of course Hitler equated that to superiority and the right to kill other people,” Rios said. “When we, as American Right, we love our country too but not because we think we have the right to kill other people or we’re superior. We export goodness. We export help to others. It’s a very different view of your country.”

Earlier in the interview, Gaffney accused “people like George Soros” of enabling a “red-green axis,” a theory that alleges that “red” leftists are partnering with the “green” Islamists in order to, as one paper published at Gaffney’s think tank states, “erase America.”

A partnership has formed between “people on the hard left, among them prominently homosexuals, feminists, Jews, apostates, other minorities,” Gaffney said, “and Islmaists, who hate all of those people.”

“The thing that they seem to have in common is they hate America more and they’re willing to work together to try to transform it,” Gaffney said. “I fear that’s what we’re facing right now.”

Indicible

they don’t try to use their nationalism to commit mass murder.


They don't have the means to do so, however, they did commit murder and they absolutely yearn for a time when they could oppress others without repercussion. They cannot be literla nazis, because those died 70 years ago, but they certainly want to be like them.

Only because we stopped allowing you to.

Funny, the Nazis said the same thing when it all started over 70 years ago.

So disagreeing with Nazi sympathizers means you hate America.

The Angry Dybbuk

Most Germans who weren't part of that camp system didn't know about it. Most guards wouldn't even tell family members.

...or do these idiots think it's coincidence all the designated extermination camps blighted Poland instead of being constructed in Germany - and yes, there's a difference between a concentration camp and a death camp (so if anyone mentions that Dachau was in Germany, for example, that's just going to piss me off).

Do these idiots seriously think anyone, including most of those who joined the SS, for example, saw THAT coming?

I'll give you a hint: 99% didn't see the Nazi holocaust coming. Germany had art, culture, music, poetry; the nation was in the process of greater industrialisation. All those great philosophers and thinkers were believed to be a buffer that would protect "ethnic Germans" from degrading into monsters.

The art, culture, and philosophy blew away as if they'd never existed. And those who thought, ‘Oh HELL no,' and applied for transfers to the Eastern Front discovered Soviets suffered the same moral collapse.

Centuries of US idealism won't be enough to protect you from yourselves. You'll create the sort of monstrous system that you either continue feeding or it eats you.

I warned Rios once. The answer was so dumb I knew she was beyond help.
