And nobody says anything about it!

George Soros, the mainstream media darling, celebrated philatropist and a champion of just about every liberal left cause on the planet has given an interview to CBS "60 minutes". According to Atlas Shrugs he has revealed not only how he pulled through Hungary as a Jew during WWII but also parts of his personality. I advise everyone to read carefully the bolded part.

Shocked? Consternated? You should be!

So killing people and taking their property away is like being in a market? Civilised peoples have been calling that "murder" and "robbery" since the dawn of time. I guess this is the new age of tolerance we are being ushered in.

But the worst part is, besides bloggers, no official organization reacted to this so far. None of those societies supposedly devoted to tracking down Holocaust victims' propeties raised their voice, not one liberal pundit called Soros to task and said that it would be morally impermissible for him to finance any political organizations anywhere. Needless to say, if he was pursuing conservative causes they would be all over him but since he is "their scum" I suppose it makes him off-limits.

Another question poses itself naturally. Soros came to the UK as a refugee after the war and immediately enrolled in the London School of Economics. How could a supposedly dirt-poor refugee afford tuition fees there? The origins of Soros' wealth are murky at best. If one digs deep enough, who knows what one might find.

"They are asking for it"

An islamic cleric in Australia has recently scolded victims of rape in that country and basically said that getting raped is their own fault. The reaction of the public to that remark is of an unanimous outrage and some are even calling for the imam to be expelled

At first sight I found the reactions to be exaggerated and even hypocritical. After all, it seemed to me, he did not say anything an average lawyer defending an accused rapist in a court room would not. But lookin upon it a bit closer I realized that the cleric's words are far more sinister. Just take a look at this excrept:

“If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside… and the cats come and eat it… whose fault is it, the cats’ or the uncovered meat?” he asked.

The uncovered meat is the problem, he went on to say.

“If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred,” he added.

Following this logic when someone gets robbed it's his or her own fault because he or she acquired possesion. And if we follow it to the end everybody will soon end up between their four walls wearing a burkha and sleeping on the floor.

But there is more to it. The cleric, acting as a religious authority, has basically torn down the barriers between right and wrong for his coreligionists making sexual assult morally justified. This is not to say that every muslim male will go on a rape spree, but there is no doubt that the sexual assaults by muslim men on non-muslim women largely derive from these and simmilar statements from some top islamic clerics. That is why the reaction of the Australian public is not over the top and under the cricumstances it is the only acceptable one.

Now there's a shocker!

According to the latest poll conducted by the Counsel on American-Islamic Relations(CAIR) the majority of american muslims will be voting democrat in these midterm elections.

Gee, who would have thought? Nothing like a blindigly obvious statement to start your day, eh?

There'll always be an England...right?

Well not if the British liberal esablishment has anything to say about it! Their stuffing the ideology of multiculturalism down the British people's throats has reached new hights(or lows, if you prefer) of pathology.

Remember the stories from totalitarian regimes such as nazi Germany and the communist countries of how children used to report parents to the secret police if they countered the party ideology? Well, something simmilar, actually something much worse happened in England a couple of days ago. Apparently, a teacher reported to the police a girl from her class for racism because she complained nobody in the group she has had to work in spoke English! The girl had to spend 12 hours in jail along with the dregs of society for speaking her native tongue in her native land!

Sounds like a Monthy Python's sketch. Except I'm not laughing and neither should you.

Popular myths vs real history and what misconceptions can they bring about

Popular myths and legends are notoriously easy to create and spread but several times as hard to debunk. All to often no amount of facts can dissuade a person from a widely accepted "truths". There are numerous examples.

Try telling someone that Marlon Brando never says "I'll make him an offer he can not refuse" in "The Godfather".

I dare you to point out that Mel Gibson is not an Aussie but a bona fide American.

If you say that Beckham's free kick against Greece in 2001 at Old Trafford was not a winning goal but an equilizer, you'll raise many an eyebrow.

All these are quite harmless, but the problem starts when popular myths start reigning in areas of life where they absolutely shouldn't, such as history.

It's a well known joke that these days a fascist is a conservative winning an argument with a liberal. Throwing around that label by liberla leftists is their favourite last resort. But how much conservative were the fascists actually?

Let's start with some of the details from Mussolini's biography. He joined the socialist party, rose up the ranks, was editor-in-chief of the party newspaper "Avanti" but then split with the party over Italy's participation in WWI. After the war he founded the Fascist party and practically copied the socialist's economic and social programme. Many features of contemporary social policies considered sacrosant such as elementary schooling free of charge and compulsory for all, state pensions, welfare handouts for the unemployed, governement subsidies, first found implemantation in Mussolini's Italy.

What about everyone's favourite boogey-man, Hitler? Let's put aside for a moment the fact that his party had the word "socialist" in it. Hitler took many things from Mussolini, not the least his economic and social programme. But he went several steps further. Do you know which state first prohibited smoking in public places? Believe it or not, it was the Third Reich. Hitler himself was a fervent non-smoker and pressed all his associates to take up the same orientation. Also, in honour of the leader's habits, German publications of the time were full of articles celebrating the virtues of vegetarianism. All of those are standard liberal leftist features.

Then there is also a distaste towards traditiona religions. Hitler repeatedly spoke with contempt about the churches in Germany and christianity in general. Mussolini was very hostile towards the Vatican in his early years. He toned down the anti-church rhetoric after the Lateran agreement but his distrust towards it never diminished. The same hostility towards the Christian churches, regardless of denomination, is also displayed by the left of today.

What is a conservative, anyway? A person attached to the traditional values of his or her country and nation which he seeks to preserve and if possible, enrich. How do il Duce and der fuehrer fit the description?

"Fascism = conservative" is one of the greatest myths of the 20th century. In the immediate years following WWII fascism was not sufficiently studied from a scientific point of view because of a short historical distance. Once such a distance has been established the liberal left has all but taken over education and through it, the mass media and thus they were able to create that myth, so successfully that people have forgotten that the pioneer of the opposition to Hitler in Europe was an arch-conservative Winston Churchill.

Having created the myth, the left completely monopolised anti-nazism and from such a position hands out fascist labels at will, exactly like...Well, exactly like the fascists and the nazis used to label all their opponents "communists".

What a difference 5 years make

What was your first thought when you heard a plane crashed into one of the WTC towers on 9/11? How about when you heard about a plane that crashed into a Manhattan building two days ago?

What more proof do you need that 9/11/01 changed our lives completely? Not just in the USA but all around the world.

Off to a start(at long last)

Finally, my English blog is under way. I planned to have it earlier but something always comes up. In any case, here it is...

I'll be talking politics here, bothe Serbian and global, mostly, but also some lighter subjects, such as sports, arts and history.

I'll try to post as often as possible and, more importantly, make myself interesting. I'm looking forward to your reactions.
