Bewarned Dipshits Abound!

Apparently, ‘Progressive Essays’ was a cruel joke designed to lure people (left-wingers) into thinking that he/she/it was a left-winger whilst, using selected speeches from people such as Hitler, to justify their comments. As he/she/it notes,

“This blog was started as an experiment to examine
this phenomenon. What would happen if someone began writing under a
"progressive" byline, with progressive being the acceptable name of socialism in
these post-communist days, but with the twist of using only Nazi and fascist raw
material?….Obviously a little editing would be required to transform 1930-type
issues into post-millenium situations, but surely they'd recognise the Nazi
"blood and soil" and environmental motifs, the rabid anticapitalist and
anti-free market ideologies of Nazism and fascism and even a piece of
Mein-bloody-Kampf? Or would these "leftist" pillars that actually so pervade
"rightist" ideology obscure the references too much for them to identify the
likely authors?”

He/her/it is quite gleeful in regards to their ability to ‘put one over on the left’ and how this shows that some of us have Nazi Sympathies;

“…Joe Hendren, a "noted" fascist historian, didn't recognise the fascist
literature, BlogGreen liked the greenie aspects of Nazi ideology and CutFoldGlue
finds the whole thing to be very in tune. They may feel free now to reassign
Progressive Essays into a different slot on their blog rolls.”

Apparently, the proof of showing Nazi or totalitarian sympathies appears to be: 1) listing Progressive Essays as Left, based I suspect, on reading a couple of their 'edited' postings or maybe as a result of reading other people’s listings or 2) on the basis of welcoming Progressive Essays to the world of blogging, as BlogGreen generously does to most people.

However, the joke could be on him/her/it as they appear to assume that firstly, people continuously read their blog and secondly, that no response to their postings signifies an acceptance of their points of view. Surely, it would have been better for their experiment if they had pulled either me, or Joe or BlogGreen or someone from the left into agreeing with them?

However, it is a good lesson for me to be more careful in my listings, as I had listed PE as left judged on reading two blog postings (why he/she/it was in the blog sphere and their follow up posting on Iraq). I had not been back to their site and, therefore, missed his/her/it’s follow up blogs until today. (Memo to self: I will now regularly read those blogs that I list).

However, it also really fucks me off because I dislike deception. I like people who are honest about what they believe and open in what they say. For example, while, I don’t agree or support those comments from Aaron Bhatnagar, Grant Tyrell or David Farrar, I respect their right to express their points of view as an important part of a democracy.

Somehow, I feel that PE might be closer to those that he borrowed the comments from than he/she/it thinks, as anyone who has researched the Weimar Republic knows that deception and double handedness were the Nazi’s favourite traits.

I just glanced at the site. What a lot of dense boring drivel. Does the dumbass 15 year old that did this imagine anyone actually read it through?

I suspect the red that abounds on your website is the color of your face.

Yeah Rich, I suspect that they thought that people did. It really is the stuff that 15 years old would do.

As for Anonymous. I only debate with adults so I can only endorse BlogGreen's comments thus, "Grow up, fuck off and have a nice day."
