The nasty, Nazi left

If you recall, there was a bit of a storm in a teacup over the UK Tories selection a photo of a German road and labelling it as if it was Britain being used as part of their election campaign.  At the core, who cares, except the whole campaign goes off-message.  Something we’ve also seen here.   (These details matter).

To remind you, this is the ‘poster’ that they used.

Conservative election poster 2015

Apart from it being a photo of Germany, you can trust the left, in the form of the Labour Party, to wade in and make a total nasty mess of it:  

Here’s another poster that was mocked up:

Of course, that’s also a photo from Nazi “Germany” (Poland).   It’s the railroad at a Nazi death camp.  Charming.

A Labour councillor has been suspended by the party for sharing on social media a parody of a Conservative election poster doctored to include an image of a Nazi death camp.

Rosemary Healy, who represents the Mapperley ward on Nottingham City Council, insisted she had not spotted what the picture was of when she sent it on to more than 1,500 followers on Twitter and expressed “profound apologies”.

But the party confirmed that the council’s executive assistant for community protection had been suspended amid closer-than-ever scrutiny of politicians’ internet postings in the run-up to May’s general elections.

It’s slimy.  If you want to be controversial, at least own it.

Rubbish.

We’ve seen the same here.   Anyone remember Labour getting stuck into Mad Butcher Sir Peter Leitch for spending some time with John Key, and calling for a boycott of his shops?

What is it with the left that they just have to go for nasty, Nazi and boycotts?

One thing they are scared of is open debate.  There is a constant narrative that they have to ‘shut us down’.  We are to be gotten rid of.   A debate of competing ideas is the last thing they want.

    People are so precious – I thought it was funny. I like dark humour.

      There was absolutely nothing funny about Auschwitz CW.

  • conwaycaptain

    Don’t like debate, don’t like conflicting ideas?? Now where have we heard that before in the last few days???
    Oh yes the Religion of Peace.

    • Chris W

      Exactly. People can get off their high horses and stop getting so sniffy about a joke. Apart from anything else, it’s unpersuasive – everybody hates moralising scolds.

  • ozbob68

    What is more concerning to me is the fact the counsellor was clue-less enough to not recognise Auschwitz. Would you really want someone that ignorant of world history and politics representing you?

      Methinks she doth protest too much.

    Intellectual cowardice seems to be all we can expect from those left of centre these days ,Healy, like all the rest are too gutless to own their own opinions.
    We don`t need to imagine how weak these these people would be if they ever got into a position of power,(think Goff poster boy for spineless) they`d sell us out in a heartbeat if threatened with real consequences.

    • Rodger T

      I would add I believe CLLR Healy to be lying thru her teeth,that she did recognise what it was and retweeted it for that very reason.
      It is a tactic that is being used more frequently by politicians ,appropriated from that old legal tactic of lawyers mentioning something that the judge will order them to withdraw,but still gets into the mind of the jurors.

      • Another Middleagedwhiteguy

        Not only did she recognise the image, she knew the significance of what she wanted to portray, she knew exactly the right image for her purpose, she knew where to find it, and she went searching . . . .

        “Lying through her teeth” is therefore a very mild expression.
        That lie is exactly in the mould of Goebbels “best” work, it wormed its way all the way up from just beyond her colon.

    That’s in Poland, not Germany. It was under German control at the the time Birkenau was built.

  • In Vino Veritas

    Nazis were socialists so it shouldn’t come as any surprise to anyone.

  • timemagazine

    Why are the Nazis or the Fascists considered to be extrem-right? Hitler’s party was called -National Socialismus and the German economy under him had all the marks of a state run economy. Maybe some of the well-read whaleoil readers could explain.
    My speculation is that the left didn’t want to have anything to do with them, although the former communist countries have exceeded by far the mass murders of the Nazi regim.

    • Michael_l_c

      And stalin liked to murder millions & pol pot & mao & the korean clan, and, and, all left wingers. Now I am sure there are right wingers who have murdered millions.

      The different varieties of socialism, just like the English soccer clubs, were simply in competition with each other.
      Same game, same aim, same tactics, same bunches of thugs, and in the end one lot wins and the losers are called “losers”.

  • crosstherubicon

    Britain is truly the most gutless nation on god’s earth at this time. The goverment, MSM (especially the BBC), our so called intelligentsia, universities and celebrities are lying appeasing, obseqious, capitulating, quisling cowards. Even the ‘so called’ conservative party led the most treacherous scoundrel Cameron is left wing.
    Political correctness and Tony Blair has been our ruination. The greatest gift to ours and the wests enemies was PC. It has destroyed free speech, reasonal debate, and good honourable opinions as racist and bigoted to shut down all concerns about immigration, Islam, anti EU, foreign aid, foreign wars and good old common sense.
    The second greatest gift to enemies of the west, democracy and freedom of speech is…wait for it…Barrack Hussein Obama!!

    I watched a clip last night by “Wild Bill for America”. He has strong right wing views. He described the Left as “left-overs”. Fairly accurate when you think about it.

  • Eiselmann

    What are the odds that a person wanting to mock the Conservatives (who this person no doubt believes are a government full of fascists ) use of a German road, by re tweeting something that just happens to be a symbol of the evil that was the Nazi regime (that no doubt this person also considers were fascists) and it was a genuine mistake.
    What to mock the conservatives…sure go ahead they left themselves open for a bit of mocking but to use a concentration camp to score a political point , that’s no mistake
