Strange thread I saw on Something Awful about Nazis
« on: February 19, 2013, 10:14:59 am »
I can't link it but a Belgian member's dad was a neo nazi.
This guy was odd.  IE the Nazi actually went to Africa and came back a racist.  also he's not a dumb person fluent in 5 languages. 
I bring this up since he defies two traits I see of neo nazi's.  He's intelligent and he traveled and became a racist.  Most people I see who travel become less racist

Disclaimer: I don't know the original thread or any details about this particular case so I'm just talking about racism generally.

Smart people are better at defending their beliefs, this includes belief in supernatural and racism.

Besides, some of africa is in horrible state (and you can't blame all of it on first world) so it is possible that he saw that as proof of their inferiority, or maybe he just had a bad experience with the locals. Or a culture shock. For many people one initial incident starts the racism and after that they notice every "proof" they come across and ignore any evidence against his belief-system so being exposed to world and other cultures does not always help.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

The Nazi's themselves had many intelligent people amongst them - Josef Goebbels had a PhD and worked on the Stock Exchange, Albert Speer was a trained (and highly thought of) architect, many of those who worked within the Nazi state itself were trained as Doctors, lawyers, etc.

Political inclination is no real indicator of intelligence.

It's the same here, although there are some like Nick Griffin who went to University.  Still bigoted morons, though.

It would seem that he over generalized based upon limited experiences.
Despite knowing about indoctrination I thought it was a good idea to put a human Reaper near my office. Now I am a sentient husk :(.

I suppose.  Still the guy is smart enough and his son makes it clear he'll not be seeing his granddaughter until he stops being a monster.

The Nazi voting rank and file were largely middle class; artisans, farmers, shopkeepers, soldiers, university students and grad students out of work. That's not an ill-educated group.

The party's name is the Democratic Party. It has been since 1830. Please spell correctly.

"The party must go wholly one way or wholly the other. It cannot face in both directions at the same time."

Dude...racism takes all kind.  Doesn't matter how dumb or how smart.

Ironbite-people will hate for no reason whatsoever and it sucks.
