Talk:US Nazi leader talks about Barack Obama, the economy and more

Active discussions

Well, this just might be interesting. I heard on NPR that some White Supremacy groups like (or at least sympathize) with Obama as president, because they feel he might advance the "white agenda" or some such nonsense. —Calebrw (talk) 03:56, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

I promise you Calebrw, this should prove very interesting based on the responses so far. Anyway, some folk may have been waiting for this being published today, but it looks like it will be at least tomorrow. I had agreed to do short burts of 2-3 questions per email, but for the last lot I did 6 and offered him to take a little longer, then I could publish. It seems he, reasonably enough, decided to do so. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 20:44, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

TitleEdit

Is Mr. Schoep a commissioned officer? If not, why is he referred to as "commander" throughout the article? --+Deprifry+ 16:34, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

I will guess and say that the 'leader' of what might be considered a form of military or militia, would probably refer to himself, and the rest of his pupils/troops/etc, as commander. Like Obama/BUsh is/was president of the US, they are also commander in chief of the US armed forces. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 16:58, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
Dragon got it. He refers to himself as commander, and as the Nazis are fairly militaristic, I see that as a reasonable enough title to give the head of the party. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 17:17, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
Common usage of the title "commander", which implies a certain degree of accomplishment, appears to be exclusively in a military or law enforcement context. I'm not sure we should uncritically relay his self-styled title, thereby giving our reader a wrong impression about Schoep's stature. --+Deprifry+ 13:27, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

ReviewEdit

Links to the movement's websiteEdit

I believe they should be removed. Wikipedia is not a place that encourages zealotry, hate, or demagoguery. Why are we including a link to a movement that have blood on their hands? Arbiteroftruth (talk) 07:00, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

This is not Wikipedia. You are welcome to piss off back to it. It's that way. Linking does not encourage anything, it merely says that you can find them here. Finally, information from the website was used in the introduction, making it's inclusion vital for referencing. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 15:55, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
