THEIR SWASTIKA GREEN
by Brien Bartels
Whenever a group of enviro-lefties get together a lot of clumsy comparisons
get thrown around concerning Republicans, free-marketeers, businessmen,
and their alleged resemblance to fascists and Nazis. Which is odd
because those groups, however much you like or loathe them, are of various
Christian denominations or even Jewish, don’t advocate street violence
or eugenics, don’t tend to subjugate individuals to abstractions like racial
purity, etc. In fact the list of dissimilarities goes on and on.
And of course, there is the whole fetish for Volkswagen Mini-buses.
But, when you look at the political wing of the environmental/socialist
movement, the various Green Parties of the world, you see the following
The Green Party is led by a bunch of pagan, vegetarian dropouts.
So were the Nazis. Hitler was a failed artist and vegetarian. The
leader of the SS, Himmler (another soy-sucker), wanted his Black Corps
to be the vanguard of a pre-Christian back-to-the-land movement.
The rituals and symbols he devised to replace Christian services looked
like really bad art direction of a performance of Wagner’s Ring Cycle
The Green Party claims to stand for workers’ rights. "Nazi" is short for
National Socialist German Workers’ Party.
Sometimes the Greens wear animal costumes to political functions. The Nazis
went to their rallies in drag as well.
The Greens stand up for farmers and peasants, foreign and domestic. The
Nazis were wonderfully agrarian, even advocating organizing farming. They
just wanted the farms to be in the Ukraine, tended by the untermench
The Greens advocate "decentralization." The Nazis practiced decentralization
by giving their colonial governments life and death power over the organic
farmers in their jurisdiction.
The Greens wage a defensive war of sabotage and propaganda for the oppressed
peasants of the world. The Nazis waged a defensive war for the oppressed
Aryans of Central Europe.
Greens occasionally smash shop windows to get their point across.
I’m not sure, but I imagine the Greens disapprove of smoking tobacco.
The Nazi regime tried to ban smoking in public places, forcing its soldiers
to set an example of abstinence.
The Greens hate guns, especially private ownership of guns. The Nazis
inflicted on the world groundbreaking "gun-control" laws, which they tested
by confiscating the arms of German Jews.
The Greens are big tree planters. Seven years ago, an aerial survey
of the former East Germany revealed a stand of larch in a forest of pine.
These trees, planted by an early and flamboyant supporter of Hitler, formed
a huge bright green swastika for a few weeks in spring and a flaming yellow
one in the fall. (Ironically, the Germans, those engineers, fooled around
for five years before removing the swastika, because they thought cutting
down only the larches would just leave a swastika shaped hole in the forest.
I guess they eventually got permission to flatten even de-Nazi-fied trees.)
The Greens want investment in alternative energy. The Nazis pioneered
not only synthetic oil from coal (to cope with the small problem of a hopeless
war) they also invested a ton of Reich marks in an alternative energy system
exploiting an until-then useless substance called uranium.
