I stopped taking Indymedia too seriously a long time ago, but it remains a Huxleyesque doorway into the minds of the far-left and self-proclaimed “anti-fascists” and self-deluding “anti-racists”, and of course the anarchist, extreme animal rights and anti-globalisation luddite crowd.
Of course, in truth, you will find more fascists, racists and loons there than anywhere else. The trouble is, they think they’re the vanguard of a brave new world.

In Mein Kamf, of course. In the section defending The Protocols of the Elders of Zion!
We at Harry’s Place have been warning about the stready rise of antisemitism in the Left for years, and have been mocked for it. But it is no longer something which can be dismissed or denied. It’s right here, today, in our faces.
Self-proclaimed anti-fascists paraphrasing Mein Kampf – what’s next, you might ask?
