What a cracking few days it's been for fans of Nazis, Nazi neo-pagan imagery and the works of Leni Riefenstahl in particular
First we were treated to the sight of 600 stormcoppers recreating favourite scenes from Triumph of the Will over at
Then, a few days later, our Prime Minister hosted a summit on 'progressive (?) government' complete with a sNazi new logo
And, now, to round things off, more coppers and a few B-grade TV celebrities have spent the day running around London recreating some of the best bits from another of Leni's celebrated works...
Along with so much of the Olympics, that torch ceremony is 100% neo-pagan, Illuminated Nazi bullshit
Nazis, Fascists and members of other Illuminated fruity little clubs have historically had a hard-on for the Olympics; as the Olympics hark back to a fantasy past of greatness ...and order ...and physical and racial purity
And to illustrate my point there's a special valuable mystery prize on offer to anyone who can dig out a credible explanation for the design of the five interlocking Olympic rings which doesn't include reference to occult beliefs and fruity little clubs
Of course, people like me who point stuff like that out are the fruity ones, not the whack jobs who stage and propagate this kind of bullshit
Anyway, the coverage given to today's torch ceremony, its associated security and the efforts of protesters (genuine and CIA-sponsored) to fuck things up was on the, er, heavy side...
Kind of suspiciously heavy. I'm still trying to figure out what the core message to viewers was. Possible messages include...
- Hate China, lots
- Remember, Over the Top policing is now the New Normal
- Doublethink is fun, and not all that difficult if you give it a try
or maybe a combination of all of the above
