Someone should get a brain

Orac says almost all there is to say about LaShawn Barber's attempted redefinition of neo-Nazi scum known as Prussian Blue as a mere "white pride" group. Of course, it is painfully obvious what they're up to, when their official site links to the denier screed Dissecting the Holocaust (lookie here or here), edited by Germar Rudolf, known primarily for pushing ... "Prussian Blue" arguments; or when we know that their mommy is a columnist for one of the largest neo-Nazi websites out there. Interestingly, it's not the first time these "bad" racists are mistaken for... how to say it... "good" racists.

Well, I've heard them sing. Not exactly my cup of tea but I don't see what the big deal is. I also don't see anything wrong with songs about Nazi martyr Rudolf Hess--though "Prophet of Peace" seems a bit overmuch in my opinion. But like it has been mentioned, any other kind of "pride" group would be celebrated and fawned about endlessly.

In any case, I don't think the description "scum" is very fitting for the Prussian Blue girls, especially considering the kind of Grunge and Rap and just plain Crap that comes out of the entertainment industry. I've also met and talked with their mother briefly. She didn't seem as weird as I expected and more intelligent than most. I've got neighbors that are lots weirder than that, although maybe not condemned by the establishment--except for maybe the ones that smoke dope. That's still not "in."

Sorry, any NV member/participant is scum for me. And the whole point is that it is not just a "pride" group.

I don't really see the point either, but some of them seemed pretty decent.

Why?
