There is different tendencies in fascism : Nazism, Petainism, Doriotism, Franquism and so on. It seems you have a lot to learn about it.
Great, I try to defend someone from unjust accusations of fascism and "spread[ing] venom," and all I get is someone lecturing at me and being condescending. Why do I even bother coming here?
I admit that my knowledge of fascism is not as extensive as it should be, since I am a Chinese-born university student in the United States. Having been born in China - which was the victim of capitalist and imperialist aggression, though not of an outright fascist movement (Imperial Japan bore characteristics of fascist states, but it is not always recognized as such) - and currently living in a country that has not actually dealt with the scourge of fascism on our continent to the same extent as in Europe, the thorough exploration of fascism has never been truly a part of any academic curriculum that I have been put through. That I do not live in a country with National Bolshevik movements/groups certain hinders my ability to fully understand what the NBs stand for.
Nevertheless, I am well aware of the various strains of fascist movements: Nazism, Franquism of Spain's Francisco Franco, and the Petainism of the Vichy regime, out of the ones you you listed, and I am also vaguely familiar with the clerical-fascism of Austria, and the Iron Guard of Romania, just to name a few others. As such, I am well aware that many fascist movements indeed are both nationalistic and also anti-capitalist, and giving off the impression of being socialist as a result. One such example is the Nazi Party, which called itself "National Socialist" and even espoused socialist-sounding messages in their party program, despite being vehemently opposed to Marxism and all forms of leftist thought. A very irritating thing that happened was when a fellow student said that the NSDAP Party Program sounded like "socialism for Germans," which is made even more irritating that said student is from the former USSR and should know a bit about socialism to know that what the Nazis were certainly not socialist in the least. They were anti-capitalist, yes, but socialist, no - not that any of it matters, since the Nazis made an alliance with the bourgeoisie and military aristocracy and basically became friends with the military-industrial complex and instead became fixated on aggressive nationalistic imperialism and the acquisition of Lebensraum
. I'm sure you know all of this, but I just wanted to let you know that I am aware of these things and am not as ignorant as you might believe.
In the context here, I was pointing to the fact that Moris here is very much against fascism and supportive of the leftist cause, and that despite the negative connotations that come with "National Bolshevism," NB is not even a homogeneous movement. Wikipedia is not the most reliable source, of course, but the current versions of the articles document some of the activities and splits within the NB groups, including anti-right/anti-fascist activities that they participate in.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Bolshevismhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Bolshevik_Party
Wikipedia article on the National Bolshevik Party wrote:
In Latvia NBP is active in anti-capitalist demonstrations and in blockades against SS veterans' parades during Latvian Legion Day.
In Ukraine, the NBP joined other small parties in signing a Declaration of the Kiev Council of Slav Radical Nationalists in 1996, in an initiative led by the Ukrainian National Assembly. The Ukrainian NBP, which is largely based in the east of the country is active in anti-UPA and anti-NATO demonstrations. During the Orange Revolution the Ukrainian NBP decided not to support Yanukovych or Yushchenko.
Like I said, though, I am not very familiar with National Bolshevism, due to a lack of exposure, but the impression that I have had is that there are aggressive, nationalistic, right-wing elements to them, but also that there are also left-wing nationalists under the same banner.
You should follow the path of the partisans and continue the fight against fascism. I dont think nazbolism is socialist, whatever they pretend to be. Their name and their logo is absolutely shocking, and this is a great insult to all the men who died to shoot down the beast.
Funny you should mention that. What happened to:
I was explaining to comrade Kommissar_KW that clothes do not make the man.
