  • The Question Pro-Abortion Students Can’t Answer

    Not long ago, it was considered gauche on college campuses to provide comparisons to Hitler. Students would shout, “Godwin’s Law!” and cancel the conversation like an insufficiently woke Instagram influencer. But in the era of President Trump, which some would have you believe has ushered the Third Reich into the fifty states, politically liberal students have suddenly found renewed interest in comparing modern affairs to Nazi practice. For them, however, this is a double-edged sword. For, when the topic of Nazism arises on campus, a question quickly follows many cannot answer—a question of morality. Shared Experience Morality is inescapable. Spend...

    When Martin Luther King Jr. visited the villa in Mumbai, India, where Mohandas Gandhi stayed in the 1920s, he had a special request: He wanted to spend the night in Gandhi's bedroom. ........................................................ Now, six decades later, many black Africans are calling Gandhi a racist. #MeToo activists are questioning his sexual practices. Hindu nationalists are rejecting Gandhi's vision of a pluralistic India that is strengthened by diversity.
  • Two mass murders a world apart share a common theme: 'ecofascism'

    The alleged Christchurch shooter, who is charged with targeting Muslims and killing 51 people in March, declared himself an "eco-fascist" and railed about immigrants' birthrates. The statement linked to the El Paso shooter, who is charged with killing 22 people in a shopping area earlier this month, bemoans water pollution, plastic waste and an American consumer culture that is "creating a massive burden for future generations." The two mass shootings appear to be extreme examples of ecofascism - what Hampshire College professor emeriti Betsy Hartmann calls "the greening of hate." ...These ideas have shown themselves to be particularly dangerous when...
  • Ukraine's Constitutional Court Upholds Law Equating Communism To Nazism

    RFE/RL ^ | July 17, 2019 | Current Time
    Ukraine's Constitutional Court has upheld a law that equates communism to Nazism and bans the dissemination of its symbols, a law that has prompted angry protests from Moscow. In the July 16 ruling published on its website, the court said the "communist and Nazi regimes" used similar methods of "implementing repressive state policies." The legislation was passed by Ukrainian lawmakers in May 2015. That law paved the way for the removal of all communist monuments not related to World War II and renaming public places and landmarks bearing Soviet names. Since then, dozens of statues, plaques, and other monuments --...

    This striving towards connectedness with the totality of life, with nature itself, a nature into which we are born, this is the deepest meaning and the essence of National Socialist thought,’ wrote Ernst Lehmann, a professor of botany, in 1934, who characterized National Socialism as ‘politically-applied biology.’ Sixty percent of all biologists joined the Nazis. As Proctor points out, ‘Nazism took root in the world’s most powerful scientific culture, boasting half of the world’s Nobel prizes.’ The culture that gave rise to it existed before the rise of the Nazis and, as we shall see, though dormant in the...

    If someone were to ask you to think of either extreme of the political spectrum, odds are you would immediately picture a swastika at one end and a hammer and sickle at the other. Regardless of your views on the left-right paradigm or whether or not you subscribe to horseshoe theory... As such, many of us would also feel rather uneasy seeing those two symbols. Upon seeing a swastika, we are immediately reminded of the evils of the Nazi regime and are accordingly repulsed. To publicly display the logo is even a crime in many European countries. We understand how...

    Snopes ^ | David Emery
    The full name of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party, the political movement that brought him to power and supplied the infrastructure of the fascist dictatorship over which he would preside, was Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. According to historians, the complicated moniker reveals more about the image the party wanted to project and the constituency it aimed to build than it did about the Nazis’ true political goals, which were building a state based on racial superiority and brute-force governance.Given that Nazism is traditionally held to be an extreme right-wing ideology, the party’s conspicuous use of...

    Father Karol Wojtyła, who later became Pope John Paul II, is pictured in the early 1950s surrounded by young people. Father Wojtyła would regularly go on mountain excursions with a group of young married couples and students that called itself Środowisko, meaning environment or milieu. (Archival Collection of Adam Bujak)Karol Wojtyła, the man who became St. John Paul II, regularly escaped from two of the worst totalitarian regimes in history: German Nazism, and later, Soviet Communism. By “escaped,” I do not mean that he ran away. Rather, as a priest and bishop, he escaped only by going deeper.As the...

    So the white nationalists are coming back to Charlottesville, and once again we’re going to hear the standard media narrative that these bigots are “on the right.” Leave aside that Jason Kessler, the organizer of the original Charlottesville rally, was an Obama activist and an Occupy Wall Street guy. Never mind that Richard Spencer, the poster boy of white supremacy, reveals in a detailed interview in my new movie that he’s a progressive who supports nationalized health care and expanded centralized state, and whose favorite presidents are all Democrats. We need to probe deeper to understand who these white nationalists...

    Rotten Tomatoes gives it a "0%" rating from critics. They also give very low ratings to movies life "Facing the Giants". So this type of rating was actually encouraging. The Left must really dislike it (usually they at least give 10% to 15% to make it seem somewhat fair, but they couldn't even do that this time.

    It's time to address the “Nazi, Hitler, Holocaust issue.” I’m a Jew. It’s time to stand up to these mentally disturbed, liberal bullies, frauds and exaggerators. Nothing compares to the Nazis. Nothing is the Holocaust. No one is Hitler. Stop using those words, you frauds. Do you know how ridiculous you sound? You’re destroying the meaning of such powerful words. “Never forget” will soon be forgotten, because you’ve trivialized the meaning of the words “Nazi, Hitler and Holocaust.” There is no comparison in this modern word to those horrible words and deeds (except for radical Islamic terrorism- which Democrats don’t...

    The Kremlin has in recent years advanced a narrative that Russia must not be ashamed of its Soviet past. President Vladimir Putin has used his nearly two decades in power to talk up achievements during World War II as a rallying cry to unite the nation. In recent years, there have been efforts in Russia to transform Stalin’s image from that of a bloody dictator to a ‘great personality.’ A poll by the independent Levada Center found only 9 percent of Russians blamed Stalin’s leadership for the war casualties, according to a survey published Wednesday. That is a a rapidly...

    The world's most powerful search engine listed “Nazism” as the ideology of the California Republican Party—a week before the GOP primary. Companies, like people, make mistakes. And Google came fire on Thursday for making a big one. As first reported by Vice, the powerful search engine company listed “Nazism” as the ideology of the California Republican Party—less than a week before the GOP’s primary. Needless to say, Republicans were not pleased. “It is disgraceful that the world’s largest search engine has labeled millions of California Republicans as Nazis,” said Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, the House Majority Leader. “This...

    Totalitarian systems are militantly Christophobic.  The comments to some of my articles on the dangers of materialism or the ignorance of atheism try to prove that religion is as dangerous to goodness as atheism repeat the false "fact" that "Hitler was a Catholic."  This is utterly untrue.  Moreover, all Nazism was viciously Christophobic as well as Judeophobic. My American Thinker article of November 2007 covers some of the evidence found in old books about the hate all Nazis felt toward Christianity.  My book, Swastika against the Cross: The Nazi War on Christianity, covers many more documentary sources that reveal Nazi persecution of Christianity...

    Three separate bloodbaths at Russian schools recently are all linked by the alleged teenage attackers 'worshipping' the perpetrators of the Columbine massacre in the U.S. 18 years ago. In the latest outrage on Friday, axe-wielding masked suspect Anton Bichivin, 16, wore a T-shirt linked to German band KMFDM as did sinister Columbine shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. The shirt was visible as the blood-drenched Russian was detained in the snow by military police, and in an ambulance as he was rushed to hospital. He and accomplice Alexander Rogalsky, 16, are believed to hold Nazi sympathies and gave themselves fascist...

    LEONIA, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Leonia's drastic traffic experiment will take place later this month. As CBS2's Dave Carlin reported, the sleepy, little New Jersey town, a quarter-mile from the George Washington Bridge, is declaring 60 residential streets off-limits to drivers who use them as cut-throughs. Residents say they are sick of traffic tie-ups caused by commuters short-cutting. "They should stay on the highway," said Carlos Gomez, of Leonia. "Why bother us?" The ordinance establishes a $200 fine for short-cutters. But Leonia Mayor Judah Zeigler said it's really all about those apps. "The main reason and driver behind this legislation is...
