- So these French Elections
Well apart from the proof in this thread, I remember at Newcastle Uni when one of my fellow students piped up “Who was Stalin?” when we were watching a video on the 1980-90s decline of the Soviet Union.
Supposedly an educated person. UK – excellent education system. Quite a few of them in this thread too.
“Nazis?” Yes! EVERYONE IS A NAZI.
Disgraceful.Posted 7 years ago
So a Swedish uni taught you that the only Nazis ever were the German Nazi party and then only once they got into power.
Not quite. I’m saying FN are not nazis. Really, they’re not. I know you think they are. The German pre-WW2 nazis were indeed nazis from the outset.
Just because a political party is a nationalistic populistic party doesn’t mean it’s a nazi party. I know this is a difficult concept for you.Posted 7 years agowreckerMember
No I only studied at Newcastle Uni for 6 months. Main degree from a Swedish university. Have you studied abroad? No? Come back when you have.
Wow, you’ve studied abroad! For 6 months! just wow.Posted 7 years ago
I haven’t studied abroad for 6 months but I’ve worked in West and North Africa, Southwest Asia, the Caribbean and the Balkans.
Also, don’t tell me to “come back” when I have; I’ve lived here a lot longer than you sunshine.
SwedishMatt: oooh, the possibility of some statistics and suggestion of google. You’re up to 3/10 now.
Advice: stop posting in a thread by all means. Announce you are fed up with it by all means. But leaving with a criticism of a whole education system as your last sentence is either trolling, or a big sign that you don’t really want to leave the thread at all.
SwedishMatt, do you know the range of educational backgrounds (and I am talking ‘eras’, academic levels and indeed countries here 😉 ) of the posters on this thread?
zulu, the FN do pretty well on those 25 points. About 12 more than any other major politial force either side of the channel as far as I can see. ‘Nazi’ has for me lost its meaning a little because of its overuse in non-political ways. I think the real issue with the FN being socialist/left wing or not is that of citizenship. A socialist with no other agendas will define citizenship in rather different terms to a National Socialist, FN or indeed BNP. In fact despite only one the word difference in their names, I don’t see the SNP legislating against the opportunities and chances of English and Irish people in the way that the BNP would do for supposedly ‘non-brits’, same goes for plaid cymru of course. It is a valid argument that the left-leaning elements (as distinct from the interventionist ones if we are talking two axes which of course we should be) of the FN policy are there first and foremost to win the votes of disaffected white french people, and a vehicle to power rather than where their values and wishes lie.
I am leaving the thread to go to work now btw. Happy arguing 😀 .Posted 7 years agoernie_lynchMember
I will stop arguing in this thread, I don’t think anyone actually gets what I’m saying. Not surprising really given the Uk education system, or lack of
I can’t believe anyone had the nerve to post that 🙂
A little while back I actually began to feel a bit sorry for you assuming that you were probably quite young with your ‘don’t argue with me I went to university’ attitude. I now think you probably deserve some stick for your ridiculous arrogance. A ridiculous arrogance which is all the misplaced by the fact that you come out absurd and naive comments, such as the suggestion the Nazis weren’t really proper Nazis until after 1933. What exactly did you study at university ?
And btw since I know this information is important to you, I didn’t go university (not even one of those crappy UK universities), I have no degree of any description, I don’t even have any A levels, although I do have several CSEs. So please feel free in the future if you disagree with any comment I’ve made, to point out that you must be right because you went to university (a proper foreign one). It will save you the trouble of having to construct a coherent and well thought out argument – something which you clearly struggle to achieve.Posted 7 years ago
