When my nephew was little, his mum took him to work on one of those days. He walked into the office, looked around, pointed at someone and said, "Hey mum, is that the fat, baldy man nobody likes?"An 8 year old girl went to the office with her father on ‘Take your kid to work Day’.
As they walked round the office she started crying and getting cranky.
Her father asked what was wrong.
As the staff gathered round she sobbed loudly, “Daddy, where are all the clowns you said you worked with?”
Let's not get into that argument again. He used the term "socialist" to garner support for his cause, but there was nothing socialist in his beliefs or actions.Left wing, actually.
It doesn't really matter.Left wing, actually.
Also, Mussolini started out as a Marxist.
Eh? National Socialism (ie Nazi =Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) was/is Fascism, which surely is extreme right-wing?Left wing, actually
possibly now but those political labels meant a lot back then.It doesn't really matter.
Political Left and Right are obsolete labels
The only question that matters is whether you are a totalitarian (I.e. you want a bigger state and less personal freedom) or a libertarian (smaller state and more individual freedom).
I tend towards the latter.
Where's the cunningly-apposite joke?Eh? National Socialism (ie Nazi =Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) was/is Fascism, which surely is extreme right-wing?
(Whilst International Socialism is.... Communism. Which must be left-wing?)
Anyway, to keep the humour element within this thread, what we now need is an 8-bit blurry picture of Herr Hitler and his Axis allies, followed by a cunningly-apposite joke
