He disliked the extreme political sentiment with a passion. His blind spot was to deny the racism combined with fascism prevalent in Hungary's history and culture - I suppose to defend the national honor. Nationalism is a common sentiment, most of it based on the myth of the "pure" Hungarian. Like the pure Aryan, the pure American, and the pure Muslim. Of course it is all dreamcatching. The truth is that Hungary was invaded by hordes of every race and creed, from the Mongols, Tartars, Germans, Vikings, Turks and Khazars. Across the centuries it became the crossroads of European invasions and trade, with fertile plains for grazing, farming and breeding. And war. Pagans, Christians and Jews, Muslims and all, intermarried with each other, the other's blood cursing through their descendant's veins. There is no pure ANYTHING in the human race except for pure BS. Imi understood it. And so do I.
He often brought up stories about various Hungarian-Nazi officials who were "gainfully employed" during World War II as murderers, torturers and other low lives, and had smoothly transitioned to become "gainfully employed" communist officials, murderers and torturers AFTER World War II. All it took was a change in one's uniform and the swastika switched out for the hammer and sickle.
So much for nationalism.
Maybe Americans can learn a lesson about the political extremes and fascists that had invaded, perverted and infiltrated both parties of our current political culture? More on that below as you will see. As they had invaded Norway's to the result that this MEMORIAM is also dedicated.
Hungary and "ethnic" Hungarians were not only complicit in a series of mass murders, but had joined the Axis in World War II.
A city boy turned country bumpkin, he ended up in a small resort village next to a river tributary in the south of Hungary. He retired. He told me there was no point in working in a society that will not reward talent but do as it has to his dad. The way Norwegian society is heading....
I visited him every few years...
His hospitality knew no bounds. Once I was delayed by Air France by more than ten hours. He and his wife waited in the waiting room for me to arrive, not even leaving to eat.
He was poor in material things, living a hand to mouth existence, spirit destroyed by the communists and the crony capitalism that followed, some of it surely his own doing, unable to lift himself up, he wouldn't even let me help him out. Even the small gifts he took reluctantly. I tried to sneak - through an agent - a slightly used compact car into his driveway under the cover of darkness to replace his twenty year old rust heap. He got wind of it and foiled me. And then took me to task for trying. He was a proud man.
It is possible that his kind of diet, rich in fats, smoking and drinking, didn't help matters. Like most of us, we don't take our mortality seriously or what we can do about preventing premature death.
We were born about a week apart. Inseparable. Friends.
His dad was known as the architect who built Hungary's largest national sports stadium and had also patented the railroad tie across Europe to standardize passage from nation to nation -each with its own standards before. Stalin gave him a medal for it. Then Stalin rewarded him by expropriating the apartment buildings and land he owned. And the rest of his wealth.
A few years later Stalin had a stroke. Stalin deserved far worse.
My friend deserved far better.
A massive loss of a fine human being.
What a world we live in.
Rest in Peace Imi.
WE HAVE THE US MARINE BAND...AND FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE I CAN SAY THIS:
THEY ARE FANTASTIC!

THESE WERE FORMER COMMUNISTS? NOW THEY'RE WHAT?
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IF YOU KNEW FOR A FACT THAT AMERICA'S FINEST FAMILIES FUNDED ALL THREE:
And that all three ideologies had won?
Even though you may still believe that all three had lost or are losing?
You need to see at least PART III. The person interviewed is a well known ex-CIA agent and Nazi Hunter. And much more. He has credibility, He testified in Congress and was interviewed on 60 Minutes where he could not divulge the details. The fly in the ointment, so to speak, was that he outlived the secrecy deadlines and now he's talking.
why it does what it does when you
understand these simple facts.
If you missed the first two parts they are here and very helpful for getting the full story.
This is the story of why America is the way it is. Sadly, the Nazi, or more accurately the people who funded them, won the war.

What were the kids doing at the ill-fated socialist indoctrination camp?
After reading this lunatic's manifesto, it became clear why he attacked this youth center. It was a Leftist indoctrination camp. One of the activities at this camp was the demonization of Israel. In fact, when the shooting began, some thought it was a simulation of what they are taught, Israel does in Gaza.
"Some of my friends tried to stop him by talking to him. Many people think on the island that it was a test … comparing it to how it is to live in Gaza. So many people went to him and tried to talk to him, but they were shot immediately." - Adrian PraconWhy would these kids think this? Clearly there was anti-Israel/Jewish indoctrination going on. In fact, a few days before the shooting, the Norwegian Foreign Minister attended a boycott Israel event at this camp.
Forty-eight hours before Friday massacre, teens participating in ruling party youth camp met with Norwegian foreign minister. Some called for boycott of Israel.
Several of the youths waved signs reading: "Boycott Israel."The teenagers who took part in Norway's ruling party youth camp in the island of Utoya met with Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere and demanded he recognize Palestine on Wednesday, two days before the deadly terror attack which left many of them dead.
Now before anyone gets it twisted, I am NOT justifying this lunatic's attack. Killing 90 kids in cold blood, is never justified. I am not explain why they thought the shooting at first was mimicking what they claim Israel does in Gaza. They were being brainwashed at this Progressive indoctrination camp. In his twisted mind, the shooter thought he was fighting evil. That is why this camp was targeted.
This shouldn't need saying, but it does: there can be no excuse, justification or rationale whatsoever for the atrocity perpetrated by Anders Behring Breivik.
The appalling actions of a Norwegian psychopath tell us next to nothing about our society. But the reaction to that atrocity tells us a great deal more.
There is however yet another aspect of the millenarian mindset which should not be overlooked. In my book The World Turned Upside Down: The Global Battle over God, Truth and Power, I consider at some length the millenarian fantasies not just of modern-day Islamists but also of the modern left. (I owe a debt of gratitude to Professor Richard Landes, who generously talked me through millenarian theories when I was writing my book some two years ago and whose own magnificent book on the subject, Heaven on Earth: The Varieties of Millennial Experience, has just been published.)
All the totemic creeds of today's 'progressive' classes – environmentalism, egalitarianism, multiculturalism, anti-Zionism and so on — are millenarian, in that they all posit in their different ways the perfection of the world (just like, in their time, the Inquisition, Stalinism and fascism).
Consequently, today's militantly secular leftists display some astonishing similarities to both modern-day Islamists and medieval Christian fanatics.
There is the same belief in the Revealed Truth – Revealed, that is, to them alone – from which no-one is permitted to dissent. Anyone who denies it is a heretic and has to be destroyed. Because the left believes it embodies virtue — on account of its desire to perfect the world – anyone who dissents or opposes it is evil. Because it is Manichean, all who are not left-wing are right-wing (even if they are in fact liberal). So all who oppose the left are evil right-wingers who must be destroyed. That to leftists is a moral project.
They are therefore in effect a modern secular Inquisition. They are in the same mould as the religious and political totalitarian tyrannies of the past; they make in this respect common cause with the Islamists whose agenda poses a mortal threat to their own lives and liberties and most cherished beliefs; and they share the characteristic of a closed thought system which is totally impervious to reason and destroys all who challenge it with the monsters of history and Anders Behring Breivik.
That is surely why the left seized upon the Norway atrocity with demented joy and detonated a terrifying eruption of distortion and demonisation, irrationality, hatred and sheer blood-lust as it saw in the ravings of Anders Behring Breivik the mother and father of all smears which it could use to crush those who refuse to surrender to cultural totalitarianism.
So those of us who fight for life, liberty and western civilisation against their enemies found ourselves – and by implication, the many millions who share these mainstream views – grotesquely damned as accessories to mass murder by those who actually cheer on religious fascists and genocidal madmen and who are set upon silencing all who resist.

THE BIG HATE
by Dan Greenfield
Anders Breivik's attack on the youth camp of the Norwegian Labour Party has its most obvious precedent in the Maalot Massacre when Palestinian Muslim gunmen attacked an Israeli elementary school, taking over a hundred children hostage, and then using automatic weapons to kill as many of them as they could. But the link between Maalot and Utoya is more than casual.
The Workers Youth League which ran the camp had a long history of supporting the same kind of terrorists who had perpetrated the Maalot Massacre.
Lars Gule, is the Secretary General of the Norwegian Humanist Association, and a defender of Muslims having the right to discriminate against women and gays. (The two are not a contradiction in Norway.) He was the leader of the Workers Youth League at the University of Bergen– and a DFLP terrorist.
The DFLP were the perpetrators of the Maalot Massacre. And two years after that attack, Lars Gule was trained by the DFLP and dispatched to Israel via Norway with explosives hidden in the covers of his books.
"The Suspect had made it known to his employers that he wanted to take human life… to strengthen Palestinian fighting spirit and morale," Norwegian police records noted.
None of this impeded Gule's career in any way. He went on to the University of Bergen and served as the head of the Workers Youth League, the organization that was targeted in the Utoya attack. Today he is a prominent figure on the left.
How can we make sense of this? Glenn Beck compared the Workers Youth League camp to a Hitler Youth camp. He was close, but not entirely right. The roots of the Workers Youth League are actually Communist.
WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!
Norway's Labour Party was a member of the Communist International.
The Workers Youth League was formed by the merger of the Left Communist Youth League and the Socialist Youth League of Norway. We often use "Communist" as a pejorative– but in this case the Utoya camp, literally was a Communist youth camp.
The day before the massacre, Norwegian Foreign Minister Gahre-Store visited the camp and was greeted with banners calling for a boycott of Israel, and Gahre-Store responded with an Anti-Israel speech to cheers from the campers. There is something ominous about such indoctrination of hate. It is not quite on the level of the Hitler Youth, but neither is it a world apart.
In the 1930′s, Germans were encouraged to blame their problems on the Jews. In this decade, Norwegians are encouraged to blame their problems on the Jews.
There are few children of workers at the Workers Youth League camp. They are for the most part the children of the party, the sons and daughters of bureaucrats and party leaders, training the next generation to perpetrate the Labour Party state.
Breivik came from that same background. The son of the left wing elite. And if his parents' marriage had not collapsed, with the young boy allotting a share of the blame to the Labour Party, he would likely have a comfortable spot in the socialist state. Breivik may have turned against his roots, but the idea that terroristic violence is a legitimate solution is one that he could have easily picked up on the left.
Media commentators have made a great deal of Breivik's radicalization, but despite his death toll, his radicalization seems to be an isolated event in comparison to the magnitude of radicalization at Utoya. If Breivik's violence and bigotry is to be condemned– shouldn't the species of violence and bigotry at Utoya be condemned as well?
The left can hold up Utoya as an example, but there are a legion of counterexamples. Nor the least of which is Lars Gule, traveling with explosives in his backpack, on a journey that took him from DFLP terrorist to Workers Youth League leader.
And behind that is the larger string of DFLP and Fatah atrocities. And that of other terrorist groups around the world. The Utoya attack cannot be viewed as an isolated event. It must be seen within the context of support for terrorism as a valid tactic. An idea that goes back to the Marxist roots of the Labour Party and which is embodied in its political support for terrorism. And its manifest hostility to the victims of terrorism.
Breivik and Lars Gule had their common origins in a country dominated by a political left which sees violence as a legitimate tool of political change, while dehumanizing its victims. Norway's ambassador to Israel carefully distinguished between the Utoya attack and the terrorist attacks on Israelis. The latter would go away if Israel just followed Gahre-Store's example and negotiated with Hamas.
Once you legitimize terrorism as a tool of political change, you lose the ability to determine who will make use of it. Breivik followed the example of Lars Gule, that of the Marxist terrorists, whose intellectual legacy is the black tar that seeps through the painted walls of Norwegian foreign policy.
The hatred and terrorist collaboration on display at Utoya was the symptom of a larger disease.
"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark," Marcellus proclaims in Hamlet. It's equally rotten in Norway.
