âThe Dan Rather of the Blogosphereâ
On Tuesday I was âmore dangerous than Osama bin Laden,â but today Iâm just like Dan Rather. Every day a new ad hominem, each more ludicrous than the last!
To the pseudonymous proprietors of Gates of Vienna: give up. Just stop with the diversions and evasions, and admit youâve lost. What youâre doing is obvious, and cheap, and Iâm not going to waste my time chasing after phony arguments.
And please remove my copyrighted image from your web site. You do not have my permission to use it, and especially not for a dishonest hit piece. (The image has been removed, and in keeping with their usual tactics, a big notice has been posted that I asked them to remove it.)
I am glad to see Fjordman come completely out in the open, though, and admit itâs all about whiteness for him. His essay at your site on the vital importance of âethnicityâ and the coming collapse of the United States is very clarifying.
As a counter to the nonsense and distortions at Gates of Vienna, today Noblesse Oblige has much more evidence about the unsavory connections and ideology of the Vlaams Belang, as well as a very accurate summary of the facts and issuesâsomething you wonât find in the reams of self-aggrandizing BS posted by Baron Bodissey and Fjordman: The Sound and the Fury. (This is part one of a three part series by LGF operative Thanos.)
How We Got here:
At the counter-jihad conference in Europe, there were some attendees that have questionable pasts, presents, and if you judge by their words in recent speeches and intent in written manifestos, futures.
It is a noble cause to seek alliance against the forces that would try to overcome Europe, however Charles had the temerity to question the wisdom of alliance with a couple of the attendees after the conference, notably the Swedish Democrats and Vlaams Belang. That started a lot of infighting between blogs, mostly ad hominem against Charles for daring to question.
Charles put some real thought into it before he posted the first question â he discussed it a bit before he did. He knew the flack that was coming, as great as any you would get from the Ron Paul camp. Heâs a brave soul, and so he confronted the problems and the questions raised by alliance with the parties in question.
Since then itâs been a non-stop thrill ride of whines, plaints, attacks, rationalizations, and downright masks-falling-off racism, comment-stalking and blog stalking. Fun eh?
After lengthy investigation of the Swedish Democrats, most have come to the conclusion that they have disavowed their past and really are attempting to change to a mainstream party. Theyâve booted the extremists, who went to the ND party in Sweden.
The more we investigate the leadership of the Vlaams Belang however, the more they stink.
There are many members of VB: this is not a diatribe against them all - many are just ardent Flemish patriots who simply want self-determination and freedom from the forced marriage to the French-speaking Walloons. Some are fundamentalist Catholics who view the EU as the new mask of communism, and thereâs nothing at all wrong with that â VBâs traditionalist stance, stance for families, and anti-crime stance appeals to those folks.
Part II will contain the challenges to this, and the data. If you donât care for the facts or the conclusions, the internet is out there and has both postive and negative on Vlaams Belang â if you want to objectively look into this yourself here are a few helpful searches â please look for contrasting sites.

A lovely comment from the Gates of Vienna.
We cannot âlet goâ until we have demolished his credibility to the extent that he will never again be able to harm our cause.
As I have pointed out many times, his actions, and those of his followers, are giving aid and comfort to our al-Qaeda enemies.

For reference, here are our past entries referring to âVlaams Belang.â
