Right Wing ist verboten

Regular readers will know that I've long been concerned about the term 'far right'. Whether used carelessly or cynically, it seems to suggest that Norman Tebbit and Daniel Hannan are closet BNP supporters. In fact, Fascism has much more in common with the authoritarian left than it does with small-state conservatism.

Ever since the Breivik incident, the BBC has taken to openly condemning not just the 'extreme' or 'far' right, but those who dare to identify themselves simply as 'right wing'.

Take this article:

Trojan T-shirt targets German right-wing rock fans

Music fans who took souvenir T-shirts from a rock festival in Gera, eastern Germany, have discovered they hold a secret message
The stunt was organised by a left-wing group called Exit, which seeks to reduce the influence of the right-wing in Germany.

"What your T-shirt can do, so can you - we'll help you break with right-wing extremism," the message reads, and provides a contact number for the group.

On its website, Exit said it had made contact with the organisers of the Rock For Germany festival, in its ninth year, using a false name and had offered the T-shirts for free.

The group's founder, Bernd Wagner, said the group hoped its actions would raise awareness among young festival-goers.

"With these T-shirts, we aimed to make ourselves known among right-wingers, especially among young ones who are not yet fully committed to the extreme right," he said, according to the Agence France-Presse news agency.

The Rock For Germany festival had as its slogan "Never again communism - Freedom for Germany".
What an offensive slogan! Thank Gaia that some good left wingers were on hand to steer them back in a socially responsible direction!
