In response to Robert James: Oh What a Luvvie-ly War: North Angle wrote
Something that’s been bothering me recently is the lack of awareness surrounding World War II in just about everybody these days – perhaps inevitable given that it’s now over seventy years ago, but still. When I was growing up in the seventies ‘the war’ was mentioned everywhere; people talked about it in the media far more commonly than now; we were taught about it properly in school; people themselves were post-war (the first prime minister born after the war, so many football managers since the war, etc.); relatives spoke of what they did in the war. It was a part of every one of us, even me, born in 1972.
The problem is that the lessons World War II teaches should be much more important than they are currently – now more than ever, in these days of a nazi being anyone right of left (which is in itself an utter fallacy as nazism is but one side of communism).
Dunkirk the 2017 film is an amazing spectacle, but it’s just that – a spectacle. It informs no one, which to me is dishonourable – what on earth did those soldiers die for, if not to stop it happening again? If people cannot see the similarities between what the nazis/communists did and the current lack of free speech and the inability to criticise certain religions (remember that Hitler loved the authority of mohammedanism) then we are lost: and perhaps therein lies the rub. The luvvies are in thrall to marxism, and as always, they fear the knowledge of the masses. They fear the knowledge that Stalin, and communism, were just as bad – if not worse – than Hitler and the nazis. They fear us knowing the left-wing unions in this country shamefully downed tools many times during the war. The SNP fear us knowing about its roots. The feminists fear us revering our menfolk again.
They fear us having knowledge full stop – that’s why we need to educate our children properly about World War II, rather than believing the nonsense the luvvies force upon us.
