Anyone who really does his homework and studies the roots of the green movement will soon find himself back in Nazi Germany. This is a conclusion that many independent scholars have arrived at. That feeling of intellectual superiority, infallibility, obsessive intolerance to other views, and being convinced you know what is best for everyone else have a common thread.

The latest on this troubling relationship is an article by the Jerusalem Post titled: The Nazi Roots Of The Green Movement. By BENJAMIN WEINTHAL.
Academic and journalistic research over the past five years shows the key role of Nazi figures in the party’s founding and development. […]
After strong similarities were revealed between an initiative by Germany’s neo- Nazi NPD party last year in a state parliament to demarcate Israeli products and a Green Party federal initiative in the Bundestag to impose a similar system on Israeli goods, critics pointed to the “Brown” — the color symbolizing Nazism – roots of the Green Party in an effort to explain the punitive measure directed at Jewish businesses.
The popular pro-Israel website Lizas Welt tweeted last month, “Not sure what the Greens actually have against Nazis. They even sometimes copy from them.”

This should not surprise anyone, as the Greens are notorious for their delusions of towering superiority, condescending arrogance and their belief they are the ones who ought to be running the world. The Wall Street Journal, noting their snobby, condescending attitude, once wrote a commentary titled: “The Green Supremacists“.
NoTricksZone has looked at the phenomenon on multiple occasions:
– Blut und Boden: Browns feel at home with green ideology.
– Greens and intellectual purity.
– FOCUS: Green movement has very brown roots
– Leading Pollster: Green movement shows shades of Brown
– Intolerance – Green calls for intellectual purity
– Green indoctrination
– Green as an anti-humanistic ideology.
– More intellectual purification, intolerance.
That’s for starters. The phenomenon is undeniable. The Greens of course will deny in the strongest terms that they have anything to do with Nazism – but actions speak much louder than words. The whole world is beginning to notice.
Surely there are many good Greens out there who have nothing but good intentions. For those we ask you to pause a moment and reflect on the kooky movement you’ve hitched your wagon to. Take a look at the global temperature data for the last 15 years. Hello!
I’ll refrain today from linking to that 10:10 No Pressure video as yet another exhibit.

For anyone who doesn’t already know it
I disagree with the characterization given by the “political compass”. In my view the Greens are well up somewhere in the upper-left-hand quadrant. With all the authoritarian regulation they are demanding, they have nothing to do with libertarianism.
I don’t agree with their exact classification either – for instance the CDU is pretty much in the middle and a lot of stuff they show in the middle is way to the left – but once you realize that there are (at least) TWO coordinates to judge political groups by you stop falling for the usual rewriting of history by leftist state media, putting everything on an undefineable left-right axis.

Robert Zubrin has written on this. The title of his book his ‘Merchants of Despair’. It describes the roots of the environmental movement and its roots in Germany – and much more besides.
Found a rather interesting propaganda blog. It’s the “Youth Portal of the German Bundestag”. Some very creepy articles. Written by young PolSci’s it seems.
I thought everyone knew that the Nazi Party had green roots. This really is nothing new.
I vaguely recall that A. Hitler was an environmentalist, vegetarian, animal lover and fine artist. I’m not sure if he was a human lover. 🙁
