JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: A PERFECT BLINDNESS – THE RISE OF GERMANY’S AFD AND ITS REAL CAUSE – MORE RUBBISH ON THE LABOUR PARTY AND ANTI-SEMITISM – WHERE THE REAL NAZIS AND FASCISTS CAME FROM   Leave a comment

COMMENTS TO AN ARTICLE BY CHLOE FARAND IN THE INDEPENDENT

‘Have we not learned from the war?’ Re-emergence of Germany’s far-right brings back memories of darker times
The nationalist Alternative fur Deutschland (AfD) party won 93 seats in parliament, the first time a far-right party has entered the Bundestag in almost six decades

Oh, please, it is Angela Merkel whom you should be addressing.

Her policies created a backlash, policies from supporting Obama’s hideous Neocon Wars to embracing the chaos they created with millions of refugees.

The vote was a protest.

Saying anything else is just unobservant.

Response to a comment which said “The horrors of AntiSemitism are sadly on the rise…at the Labour party conference”

Only in your mind and in the minds of others who simply do not like Jeremy Corbyn.

Minds which are too afraid to say what they really believe and fear.

It is Corbyn’s fair-minded views on the Middle East which are hated, not any non-existent anti-Semitism.

All the empty charges hurled about are just shabby attacks on a decent man.

And they are an effort to influence Corbyn in an indirect and dishonest fashion should he come to power.

No genuinely liberal-spirited person can be anti-Semitic. It is quite literally an oxymoron to say so.

It is nonsense which is promoted in Israel where the word “liberal” has been deliberately turned into a dirty word when applied to any foreigners.

Why is that? Because liberals are the truest critics of oppression and barbaric policies, so they are hated in a place where those things are openly permitted to exist.

People always forget who the Nazis and fascists really were.

They were the Right Wing – whether in the United States, where there were plenty of them, with people like Henry Ford or Charles Lindbergh, or in Germany whose great industrialists financed Hitler, or to Britain where the Royal Family and good parts of the aristocracy adored him.

It is precisely today’s attacks on liberals that are dangerous and short-sighted if you really think about it.

The Right Wing – whether David Cameron or the kings of Saudi Arabia or Egypt’s el-Sisi or Benjamin Netanyahu himself – gets a pass.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.
