Oh look, REAL fascists!

Over the last several years I have grown extremely weary of the monotonous name calling from the Left.  "Bush is a fascist!"  "Harper is a fascist!"  It has become apparent that these jackdaws, of whom there there seems to be a depressingly large number, do not really know who the Fascists were or what kinds of things they did.

Well, today we have an example of true fascism in the National Post.  This here is the Real Thing my friends, a 100% authentic, numbers matching Nazi® antique enacted by Herr Hitler himself back in the 1930's and currently being revived in a country of interest to us all.  It aleady passed the "parliament", meaning their rubber stamp brigade, and awaits only the signature of the Supreme Ruler.

        's roughly 25,000 Jews would have to sew a yellow strip of cloth on the front of their clothes, while Christians would wear red badges and Zoroastrians would be forced to wear blue cloth.

They even picked the same colour.  Fill in the blank with a wild guess as to what country this is.

So let us not be under any illusions as to who the fascists are and who they are not, shall we?

The Corrective Phantom

The National Post invented the story, knowing that the Right would gobble it up. May I prescribe a little Pepto=Bismol? :)

Invented? They didn't say that:

Sam Kermanian, of the U.S.-based Iranian-American Jewish Federation, said in an interview from Los Angeles that he had contacted members of the Jewish community in Iran -- including the lone Jewish member of the Iranian parliament.

They denied any such measure was in place.

"Mr. Kermanian said the subject of "what to do with religious minorities" came up during debates leading up to the passing of the dress code law.

"It is possible that some ideas might have been thrown around," he said.

"But to the best of my knowledge the final version of the law does not demand any identifying marks by the religious minority groups."

Ali Reza Nourizadeh, an Iranian commentator on political affairs in London, suggested that the requirements for badges or insignia for religious minorities was part of a "secondary motion" introduced in parliament, addressing the changes specific to the attire of people of various religious backgrounds.

Mr. Nourizadeh said that motion was very minor and was far from being passed into law.

That account could not be confirmed."

And of course we totally believe the Iranian Embasy and their denial, just like we believe them about their peaceful nuclear power program.

I'll hold fire on the National Post until we get a firm confirm/deny from somebody whose word is worth a pinch of racoon poop.
