Granddaughter Of Upside-Down Corpse Heils The Dawn Of A New Europe

Fascist parties in the European Parliament have declared their intention to form a bloc on January 15, called “Identity, Sovereignty and Transparency (IST)”. According to the EUObserver: “Under EU rules, there need to be at least 20 MEPs from six different member states for a political group to be formed”; a prospect secured by the recent entry (January 1, 2007) of BULGARIA and ROMANIA into the EU.

The new kids on the block — Национален съюз Атака (National Union Attack, one member) and the Partidul România Mare (Greater Romania Party, five members) — are likely to be joined by:

    AUSTRIA (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs / Freedom Party of Austria, one member);
    BELGIUM (Vlaams Belang / Flemish Interest, three members);
    FRANCE (Front National / National Front, seven members);
    ITALY (Azione Sociale / Social Action, one member; Fiamma Tricolore / Tricolour Flame, one member);
    and the UNITED KINGDOM (the ‘independent’ Ashley Mote).

Some of the political flavour of the new grouping may be found in The Guardian‘s report (Romania’s first gift to the European Union – a caucus of neo-fascists and Holocaust deniers, Ian Traynor, January 8, 2007):

In France, the group’s prospective leader [Bruno Gollnisch] has been barred from teaching at his university and is awaiting a court verdict for questioning the Nazis’ mass murder of Europe’s Jews.

His Bulgarian colleague brags that his country has the “prettiest Gypsies” and says he knows where to buy 12-year-old Gypsy brides for “up to €5,000” (£2,250).

Then there is the Polish professor [from the Liga Polskich Rodzin / League of Polish Families, nine members] who uses public office to pay tribute to General Franco, the late Spanish dictator.* Or the intellectual strategist of an Austrian party whose ideology, according to a Vienna court, is similar to that of Hitler’s “national socialism”.

Why a bloc?

“It is more a technical than a political group,” Alessandra Mussolini, the granddaughter of the upside-down corpse, told APA.

“We are mainly getting together out of necessity. Survival is only possible in a political group,” she added, referring to the fact that groups have a right to more funds and political positions in the European Parliament, something non-attached MEPs do not have.

On a brighter note, Jon Mooallem (Over My Dead Body, The Nation, October 19, 2005 (November 7, 2005 issue)), reflecting on the cultural and political uses to which celebrity corpses, such as those of Il Duce and Marliyn Monroe, are put, writes that:

Those who wanted to preserve Il Duce‘s majesty had their work cut out for them. The image of his capture was not a flattering one. He’d hidden under a blanket, disguised in a Luftwaffe overcoat, and was dashing off to Switzerland with purses full of several currencies — “not to mention his girlfriend,” one anti-Fascist noted, who “had stuffed precious stones into the seams of her underwear.”

Undermining Mussolini’s legacy, by contrast, wasn’t very difficult. Mussolini’s corpse was an emblem, after all, a hunk of bloated flotsam washed up as the political tide swiftly changed. Fascism and Nazism were in their death throes everywhere. An entire political system was being discredited and regretted. Luzzatto notes how the killing in Piazzale Loreto proved a canny perversion of Il Duce’s fervent mass rallies in Rome’s Piazza Venezia — an adoring mob now a vicious mob, the taunt of “Let’s hear your speech now” calling up his extraordinary prowess as an orator, and “a body attacked with fury both equal and opposite to the passion it inspired when alive.” After hanging there like a side of meat, Italy’s Ox was suddenly rumored to have been syphilitic, impotent and meagerly endowed between the legs. “When the leader dies,” Luzzatto writes, “the myths so vital in his lifetime are turned upside down; the charisma is transformed into a deep flaw.”

*Speaking of Poland, the Polish Prime Minister, and member of the virulently homophobic League, Jaroslaw Kaczynski — also the identical twin brother of Polish President Lech Kaczynski — was outed as a homosexual in major Polish media in October, 2006. According to The Gully (November 10, 2005):

Not to be surpassed by his twin brother, Party boss and presumed closet case Jaroslaw recently announced that “homosexuals should not be allowed to teach.” Earlier he had told the weekly Ozon: “The affirmation of homosexuality will lead to the downfall of civilization. We can’t agree to it.”

The source of the allegations regarding Jaroslaw’s homosexuality (and presumed desire to destroy ‘civilization’), interestingly enough, is the same agency Bishop Stanislaw Wielgus once worked for: the (gasp!) Communist Secret Police (Służba Bezpieczeństwa Ministerstwa Spraw Wewnętrznych / Security Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs). As is seemingly routine for members of the cloth, Wielgus first denied (December 21) ever having worked for the Polish Secret Police, but just a few weeks later (January 7, 2007) was forced to admit the truth and to resign his position as the newly-appointed Archbishop, especially as the evidence was both undeniable and — moreover — threatened the Church hierarchy as a whole. Since then, according to Craig S. Smith, writing in The New York Times (January 10, 2007), ‘In Poland, New Wave of Charges Against Clergy’:

Most researchers who have delved into the archives of the Sluzba Bezpieczenstwa, or Security Service, estimate that thousands of the country’s priests, monks and nuns at the time — as many as 10 percent of the total — collaborated with the secret police to some degree [but]…

Perhaps the most explosive assertion by people in the church is that the taint of collaboration was known for decades but kept quiet out of respect for — or perhaps even at the behest of — the Polish-born Pope John Paul II, who died in 2005.

Fucking hypocrites.

Open your mouth, and speak up for the dumb,
Against the suit of any that oppose them; open your
Mouth and pronounce just sentence, and give
Judgment for the wretched and the poor.

Proverbs 31: 8,9

  1. Hello @ndy and all,

    It is amazing that so many people still fail to understand the Machiavellan nature of the Vatican and Christian leaders throughout history. The Prince was inspired by Machiavelli’s years working in the Vatican for the Borgia clan. Just as we have seen with the recent spate of revelations regarding the American religious right and the Republican party, religious and secular leadership have always conspired against the populations they jointly manipulate to gain wealth and power. Whether we look at Communism, Fascism, Democracies, or Monarchies, the leaders of most religions, but most especially the faiths of Abraham, are always in bed with those in power. While pretending to help those they preach to, these scoundrels are regularly involved in blatant deception and duplicity. Playing both sides of major conflicts and social schisms is how the Vatican and its cohorts have divided populations and governments throughout history.

    The time is long past for those who still support these cabals of liars to get a clue about the true nature of the Vatican and religion in general. These people have never been trustworthy and little has changed throughout history.

    Here is Wisdom…

    G’day Seven,

    By my understanding, ‘The Prince’ was inspired by Nick’s desire to see a united Italy. (And that’s Machiavell*i*an.) And for the record, I think that power operates in a much more complex fashion than (for example) ‘conspiratorial elites’ vs. ‘brainwashed masses’. Such a conception is, in my opinion, simplistic and misleading. For example, the history of Christianity has been riven with conflict between different sects and tendencies, often expressing genuine popular aspirations (rather than merely one mob of lying criminals vs. another). See Raoul Vaneigem, The Movement of the Free Spirit:
