WRONG (Again) ....
Your anti-Semitic bullshit is getting tiresome, Gary.
I'm not anti-Jew. I like and admire Jews as much as you do. But I don't think they
are above (below ?) a little honest discussion. I realize we have to be PC when
discussing blacks -- but I think Jews are our equals.
And I see nothing about my post that should be construed as anti-semitic. It's just my
opinion of the origins of that word. No big deal. I first came to this conclusion when
I learned that the Hebrews use to refer to what is now Germany as "Naz".

"Nazi comes from the German word for National Socialist
"from German, phonetic spelling of the first two syllables of
Nationalsozialist National Socialist
I've heard that yarn since I was boy. And still don't believe it.
Anyway -- the first two syllables are Na -- ti.
BTW, there is one thing I have wondered about. Back during the war years of the 1940s
-- is there any record that the ordinary German people themselves used the word "nazi" ?
Watch the video. It explains the whole thing -- including the origins
of the word, and how and when it was used in Germany -- which was not
That's interesting. I'll try to believe it, but I'm having trouble. If it's a word
used by Germans -- why did the Jews pick it up to call each other ? (ashkenazi ?)
You think too much.
Seriously, nothing I said was intended to be racially critical of Jews. Even among my
ancestors -- the Scots and Irish -- I see a lot of things that amuse me. The Jews are a
great people. What other tribe on Earth has kept records of their history for almost
4,000 years ? (I wish the Scots had)

No the Jews didn't invent Hitler or fascism, and
Hitler's minions weren't named after Jews. Most of the Jews in the US
are Ashkenazi. I don't think they would be too delighted to hear your
To tell the truth -- I have always wondered why the Fascists hated the Jews so much. I
suppose it was because both groups wanted to rule Germany. The Jews owned the banks --
but the Fascists owned the guns. So --- Adolph won !
Good question -- without any simple answers. Jews, being of a
different religion, were shunned in medieval Europe. They weren't
allowed to join trade guilds, so they did a job that was beneath the
dignity of a medieval Christian -- they became money lenders. There is
a plausible theory that the smartest money lenders (bankers) were the
wealthiest. This combined with a Jewish tradition of the best girls
seeking out the most successful men to marry, and during the middle
ages, wealthy families had the largest numbers of children. Darwin
would have approved. Since brains and money go together, Jews became
an influential segment of society, which led to more resentment.

By the way, did I ever tell you that in Gaelic the word
nigger means stupid Scottish immigrant to America?
Do you know when the word was first used in what is now America ?
"... About the last of August came in a dutch man of warre that sold us twenty negars..."
The spelling has changed -- but it's pronounced the same.

And, oh my, the
niggers of Scotland were rumored to have been cannibals!
The thought of nigaroes in Scotland made me dizzy. So I looked it up. This year,
Africoons make up one half of one percent of the Scot population. (Which is much too
high -- but better than Georgia).
