Blacks right to be fascist?

Post by Henrik Andersson » Tue Sep 28, 2010 9:08 am

I saw a photo where black folks in Abbesinia do fascists salute and i saw a photo where black children dress in blackshirts make the salute to a italian officer.
So have black people in Italys colonies right to be fascits?

Henrik - having to give the fascist salute doesn't MAKE them fascists themselves :shock: You'd have to ask yourself what's their alternative? A quick bullet???

For example - one of the aspects of 1933 was the SA running riot in Germany, beating up people at the side of the road etc. if they didn't give the Nazi alute to pasing parades/marches etc. This was long before the Nazi salute became obligatory for civil servants etc. in 1934....

After being beaten up a few times at the side of the street - what would you expect the average Berliner to do? NOT do it and queue up for another beating? :( Giving the Nazi salute the next time wouldn't be anything to do with politics - just self-preservation...

Same for any nation under foreign occupation during the war - "you render unto Caesar what is Caesar's"....and live to fight and curse them another day :wink:

Dress in black shirt make black children make the salute!
I dont think it is a bullet in head.
And facism was not the early year rasism.

Looking at the images might help.
Not all look as if they are fully aware of exactly what fascism is... :?

Personally, the pic of the italian ally WITHOUT a shirt is visually more appealing! :D

The salute is not really from the blackshirts because before the war it was also an olympic greeting.

There is till today 1 sport were you can see the greeting -> Gymnastics.

Also pre war with a lot of catolic organisations the greeting was commen (here in Belgium) on manifestations or parades.

Any information about Flemisch in German service (Waffen SS, OT, NSKK, Kriegsmarine, ...) during WWII is welcome.

Well, i think most of the "black blackshirts" ( i am soo funny) leave the fascism when the allies take over.
And no one was leaft after 1943!

Would it make any difference if they were not black or fascists...?
Here's something from 1892 which might surprise you Henrik. It was used right up till 22 December 1942... :shock:
... at the words, “to my Flag,” the right hand is extended gracefully, palm upward, toward the Flag, and remains in this gesture till the end of the affirmation; whereupon all hands immediately drop to the side
