Hi Alonso,Alonso wrote: ↑Fri Jul 17, 2020 5:00 pmPut a bit more faith in me, guys. I always search the forum before I post a question. I had already searched for all the uses of the term "neo nazi" in this forum before I posted my question, and I read all the posts that seemed remotely relevant. This was indeed the one that seemed more relevant to my question, but still it doesn't provide an answer. "Neo nazi" might be a buzzword, but it is clear that many people use the term, including people in this forum, so it must have a meaning, however misguided its use might be. Even clincher in the post above seems to imply that the guy in the picture on the left is a neo nazi.been-there wrote: ↑Thu Jul 16, 2020 12:12 pmRochus Misch on neo-Nazis:“Ach, neo-Nazi. There is no such thing.
What does ‘neo-Nazi’ mean? New Nationalist, right?
There aren’t any. That’s just a buzzword.
What you have are nationally conscious people, people who say, ‘my fatherland, right or wrong.’
'My fatherland, nothing more', am I right?
The British say it, the Swiss say it, the Israelis say it.
‘My country,’ they say, 'and I’ll fight for it'.
The Israelis are [also] nationalistic people, they [also] defend their region, they defend their people...
The whole Iraq war isn’t about Saddam Hussein; it’s about Israel. Israel can’t exist on avocados and oranges! A nation lives from business. They have to have money. And the Americans always pay in. This is just my opinion, but why did they occupy Iraq? Supposedly because of WMDs? In my opinion, because Iraq is a wealthy oil region..."

Maybe it helps if I ask more specific questions:
- Are there any people in the world who consider themselves neo nazis? If so, who are they?
- Do nationalsocialists consider themselves neo nazis? Why, or why not?
- What do YOU mean when YOU use the term "neo nazi" (if you use it at all)?
- What do other people or groups of people (for example, mainstream media, zionists, leftists, etc.) mean when they use the term "neo nazi"?
I always enjoy your questions. It's great to see someone checking, researching, testing, THINKING THINGS THROUGH.
I posted that just because I thought Rochus Misch's evaluation is worth repeating.
No intention to suggest anything about your research methods.
Glad to hear you use the RODOH search engine.
When I first started looking into the protected mythology surrounding the Jewish WW2 experience, I also looked up topics here to see what the arguments were pro and con.
As for your questions on this topic of 'neo-nazis', my view is that it's become a hopelessly misused word.
It would be like asking the same thing of 'terrorists' or 'fascist'.
Both those terms have also become almost meaningless from misuse.
So I would say Misch said almost all that needs to be said. People use the term as a perjorative to discredit people and groups whom they don't agree with and wish to destroy. The end.
I would add that in my view, if any person or group today calls itself a 'neo-Nazi' group then you can be sure it has nothing to do with the NSDAP, or its aims and values.
Er... I think maybe Misch suggested that also.
