Re: Nazi memorabilia sold in a local VD store

The penny has finally dropped that VD = Vaud.

I've had a hell of a time with this thread.

Whereas being insensitive and ganging up on certain individuals and putting words into their mouth is always cool, innit?

Well it was more an observation of the rise in confidence of alt-right views in general which has become a bit of an impromptu niche bandwagon.

So somebody having words put into their mouth is a sign of rise in confidence of the alt-right?

What are you talking about? Who is having words put in their mouth?

Have you missed the zillion threads tooting about how there is a rise in the alt-right in Europe over the past couple of years? The usual suspects sagely bashing out posts that this, that and the other right-wing-screamer is becoming more and more popular in xyz country because there are refugees in Sweden or whatever bonkers logic they come up with.

No idea what kind of white-knight mission you are on here but you seem to be barking up the wrong tree.

You know full well. Or do you just randomly drop remarks of the type you did up-thread?

So who do you think that was directed against?

Seeing you were responding to.

In other words, there was wild and snarky conjecture by DB without any basis is fact that in your hyperbole became concrete evidence of the boldening of the far right.

What has that got to do with this thread?

Reminds me of the epic thread with Odile back in the day.

- Trump is just like Hitler
- why?
- Hitler had concentration camps and killed Jews.
- but Trump isn't
- but he will.
- how do you know?
- because he's just like Hitler

You should have a quick look back at the "Putting words in peoples' mouths" post you made further back. Then look up "irony".

Conjecture? Don't you mean a question?

I thought it was a perfectly reasonable question, myself. I'm looking forward to reading the OP's response.

I was reacting to Sandgrounder's reply which was assuming a certain response to your question.

Obviously she know more than you do, so why don't you ask her to explain?

An observation of your own prejudice which you extrapolated into fact.

Where was the prejudice and where was the fact?

To be fair, your diatribe on post 87 was more of a display of "prejudice" which you then extrapolated into "fact". Why is ok for you to do that?

Re: Nazi memorabilia sold in a local VD store

Last month did the official twitter channel of the German army share a photo of a Nazi era Wehrmacht uniform with the hashtag "retro"...

The Bundeswehr has its own very special history when it comes to PR blunders and shooting themselves in the foot.

Like wasn't there a time they searched a barracks for Nazi memorabilia and seized a portrait of what they assumed to be a Nazi but which turned out to be Helmut Schmidt.

That is acutally quite interesting, the picture in question was of Schmidt in a Wehrmacht uniform, he served with a anti aircraft battery before going to the eastern front and was a military observer for Freislerīs show-trials.
So technically, yes they did take a picture of a nazi down.
