When did it become “disgusting” to portray far-right nationalist wankers like Vlaams Belang as Nazis?

Wow.

Wow.

You don’t find guys dressed as Nazis holding canisters of Zyklon B poison at a parade a bit revolting?

We mustn’t draw parallels between current far right nationalists and the Nazis because it might offends the Jews? Either someone has gotten the wrong end of the stick or they are pulling a fast one here.

What utter bollocks.

Nope. Not when you’re talking about guys who are actually proto-fascists. And it’s carnival.

In this context, no - not at all.

The message that today’s extreme far right have a lot in common with the Nazis is disgusting to you? Seriously?

You do get that this is a negative portrayal of the Vlaams Belang guys as Nazis, right?

I re-read it and see what you mean. I thought at first it was supporters of Vlaams Belang participating in the parade.

Actually it’s not. NV-A is not Vlaams Belang, Bart DeWevers is more “populist far right” and is marginally to the left of Vlaams Belang. He’s anti immigrant, anti gay, but he’s not an actual Nazi sympathizer /Flemish supremacist like VB. This per Oyvind Strommen, he corrected me on Facebook the other day when I made that same assumption.

About 30 years ago I was in Brussels and asked for a beer in a bar at the Brussels Hilton in Dutch.
The barman said he didn’t understand me!
The Vlaams area of Belgium has risen economically whereas the Walloon area had sunk.
There is an ever present antipathy between the two language groups ;especially now as the Vlaams populace pay taxes which subsidise the Walloons.
Language is a primary factor in identification and rivalry.
However freedom of speech ,trumps bad taste!

It’s more than taxes, this cherished and nurtured hate runs all the way back to the 1300’s where a Shibboleth was used to determine who got slaughtered because they couldn’t prounounce “Shield and Friend” the right way in Flemish.
