Brilliant!

This is so close to reality. Most Europeans at the time saw the Joooos as troublemakers who deserved everything they got.

Funny, not much has changed!

Abu thought that was very funny, too! (The sad thing is that the comments from the Infidel Left really could come straight from Goebbels.)

you(& others) might enjoy reading
Eric Raymond's article online:

"Gramscian Damage"
http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=260

excerpt:

"In a previous post on "Suicidalism", I identified some of the most important of the Soviet Union’s memetic weapons. Here is that list again:

+ There is no truth, only competing agendas.

+ All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and colonialism.

+ There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor.

+ The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable.

+ Crime is the fault of society, not the individual criminal. Poor criminals are entitled to what they take. Submitting to criminal predation is more virtuous than resisting it.

+ The poor are victims. Criminals are victims. And only victims are virtuous. Therefore only the poor and criminals are virtuous. (Rich people can borrow some virtue by identifying with poor people and criminals.)

+ For a virtuous person, violence and war are never justified. It is always better to be a victim than to fight, or even to defend oneself. But ‘oppressed’ people are allowed to use violence anyway; they are merely reflecting the evil of their oppressors.

+ When confronted with terror, the only moral course for a Westerner is to apologize for past sins, understand the terrorist’s point of view, and make concessions."

imo,the whole article is well worth a read.

enough to post the link twice.
