Tedious, yes, but necessary. Jihad news will resume shortly; those who don’t want to read this, pleas skip it rather than writing to tell me not to post it. I am not going to let this man’s reckless smears go unanswered. The Internet is such, and his waning influence is still such, that they could cause great harm if simply ignored.
First, from here (paste the link into your address bar and it will work):
This morning we have another case of classic misdirection from the Eurofascist-supporting twins, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller; they”ve both posted long ad hominem screeds attacking me for “falling for fauxtography.”
In reality, I do not support any Eurofascists. Nor did my original post contain any ad hominem attacks. See for yourself here.
Both of them are screaming about the “fauxtography,” to divert your attention from the fascist connections of these people “” which, you may notice, they don’t dispute.
An outright lie. Two of my three original points were devoted to disputing exactly that. Again, see for yourself.
Meanwhile, I am not going to the Cologne conference, contrary to Johnson’s claims; still, however, he is trying to defame me with it. From here is the claim that I am “defending” Manfred Rouhs of Pro-KÃ¶ln, whom Johnson claims is a Nazi, because I posted his pro-Israel statement here. (You know you’re in Johnson’s Bizarro world when posting a pro-Israel statement gets you accused of being a Nazi.) Rouhs, says Johnson, is a Nazi who sells Nazi literature at his website — and therefore I must be a crypto-Nazi, right? (Buckley’s sage advice to Gore Vidal comes to mind at this point.)
Ah, but all that is just a cover for the Nazi literature that he sells, that Charles has found, right?
Nope. A European source tells me this:
Germany has very strict laws which ban the sale of Nazi material. Even reprints of historic issues of the Nazi newspaper Voelkischer Beobachter are forbidden. See here:
The Bavarian Finance Ministry announced Thursday that it will file a complaint against the magazine Zeitungszeugen over its decision to reprint the Nazi newspaper VÃ¶lkischer Beobachter in its second issue. […] Zeitungszeugen — the name consists of the German words for “newspaper” and “witnesses” — is a new magazine published in Germany by the British historian and publisher Peter McGee which plans to reprint newspapers from the years 1933-1945 in chronological order as a historical resource. The newspaper pages are included as separate facsimiles in the magazine, which also features historical analysis and expert commentary on the material. As well as the controversial Nazi newspapers, the magazine […] is reprinting newspapers from all parts of the political spectrum, including communist and social democratic papers.
Does Rouhs violate the law? Apparently not.
Here it says that the German Interior Ministry, which at first had listed Nation24 as a “far right publication”, removed N24 from that list after a talk with Rouhs.
You will also see that LGF’s evidence for Rouhs selling Nazi literature is a book about Rudolf Hess. When you take a closer look at the cover of the book you will see that it has a foreword by Golo Mann.
Golo Mann was a well-known German OPPONENT of the Nazis, whom the Nazis stripped of his German citizenship and who fought with the Allies AGAINST Hitler. See here.
So, tell me: How can this book be “Nazi literature”? Has Golo Mann overnight become a Nazi?
It makes me think of Johnson’s allegation that Dewinter was a Nazi because at a book fair he browsed through a book with pictures of SS officers. The “SS officers” were Belgian King Leopold III with Belgian generals.
And now, back to the jihad.
UPDATE: Coincidence? Or…neo-Nazi plot???
