Well, seems that somehow or another, our "(not-so) Loyal Opposition" has started to sit up and take notice of this blog, and believe it or not, I actually consider that to be a good thing. Why? Because I want the "Haters" to know I'm out there. I want them to know that I am helping work to expose them and what they really are and really have in mind to the whole world. A check of my counter stats shows that someone affiliated with Julia Gorin's website has visited, so evidently she's aware we're around. And by some means, our new "friend" Zlatan Vrabac, owner, propriator, and chief cook and bottle washer at The Serb Liberation Blog has discovered us, too. And, guess what, folks? He even dedicated a post on his blog to us! (Ain't that sweet of him!)
Well, of course, you know that such "kindness" can't go unrewarded, so in return, I've decided to fisk, er, respond to Zlatan's comments about us.
ZV: "Well its good to know that my words have reached someone; albeit the wrong kind of someone."
ARC: Well, if you're happy, I'm happy, mate. :D Of course, if you didn't want everyone, including your "opposition", to be able to read your blog (and by extention, make known it's contents), you should have made it a private one. Blogger will let you do that, you know. And of course I'm going to make known what you write in your blog, just as I will make known what any Serbian or Greek National(Social)ist writes in their blog, if I feel that the rest of the world (including the Albanian community) should be and/or needs to be made aware of it. That's a primary part of the raison d'etre for this blog.
ZV: "I shall not bother rebutting his accusations of me being a Nazi for I do not think that I showed any Nazi ideals in my 2 part manifesto or that my manifesto is anything like the Mein Kampf even though I have not read it; though it is obvious that our Albanian (he is apparently 101% Albanian in his heart and in his soul but is not genetically) friend has."
ARC: LOL....OMG....where do I begin? Well, first of all, I didn't directly accuse you of being a Nazi, Zlatan (if anything, I compared the way your ambitions came off as being more like the Symbionese Liberation Army). What I did do was compare your screed, er, manifesto's general tone and tenor to that of Herr Hitler's little "opus". But as far as whether you showed any "ideals" that resembled Nazism, well, how about a few examples....
We, the Serb people, cannot allow the injustices against us to go unpunished. We have suffered tremendously. We have faced things that few other nationalities have facedAnd here's a really choice one, Zlatan, one that shows just how much you "Godly Christian Serbs" believe in democracy, freedom of speech, fighting fair....you know, all those things the Americans that you claim to be of all the Balkan peoples to be most like believe in.
The Serbs will unite one day; the question is if by then the Serb population will be 12 million or 12 thousand. Sooner or later those who continue to test our patience will answer to our revenge of reason.
We must also except that we may have allies through blood and faith but ultimately we cannot rely on them or anyone but ourselves.
We must identify those who wish us harm and prosecute them in our own way; independently from any national or international court.
We must identify the propaganda against us and destroy it. If the propaganda is in the form of a page in a book; we must rip out that page and destroy it! If the propaganda is in the form of a book; we must destroy that book! If the propaganda is in the form of a website; we must sap their bandwidth! We must fight anyway we can! We must struggle anyway we can!
And last but not least, how about this?
We must appear faceless to the enemy. They, the enemy, must fear all Serbs if they do not at least respect all Serbs. They must understand why we fight and struggle. We must educate those who are willing to listen. We must make Serbophobia a word as common as any other. For the enemy is sub-consciously Serbophobic if they are not openly.I could post more of them, but I've already posted the whole text once, so why waste space doing it again? Now maybe those statements do not scope exactly with what Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf on a literal basis, but they sure as hell at the very least are similar in spirit and intent. I realise that your sense of "INAT" would never in a million years let you stand away from yourself and see what you've written as others might, but if by some miracle you could, maybe you would see what others who do not share your point of view (i.e. most of the rest of the planet) see, which is that your "manifesto" comes across exactly for what it is: A rambling, paranoid, hate-filled set of musings from someone who has bought into a "bully" mentality.
And as far as my reading Mein Kampf goes, why yes, I have read it (albeit a long time ago). (And BTW, it's just "Mein Kampf", not "the Mein Kampf". And no need to thank me for the English grammar lesson-the pleasure was all mine!) And Marx and Engles' "The Communist Manifesto", and Ayn Rand's "Philosophy: Who Needs It?", and a whole lot of other stuff that I don't necessarily agree with. It's called "being well rounded". You should really try it some time, Zlatan. Of course, people who are able to read opposing, and even down right evil viewpoints and philosophies also tend to be secure in their own viewpoints to begin with. It is usually only the immature and insecure who stick only to those things they agree with to begin with. As far as my relation with the Albanian people goes, the only people who I care what they think about it is them. You and everybody else I couldn't care less about.
ZV: "I think it should be noted that if a Serb shows themselves to be even remotely nationalist then they are automatically labelled as a Nazi by everyone who lacks half a brain."
ARC: Well, I guess to be fair, I should point out that to me, ALL "Nationalism" (as opposed to "Patriotism"), is a priori "National(Social)ism. Period. I consider Nationalism in any way, shape, form, and/or fashion it may exist to be dangerous-almost always to those who are outside the group in question expressing the nationalism, and ALWAYS to those within the group, eventually. It may not emulate exactly the German variety of National Socialism, nor need it be economically "Socialist" (witness Pinochet's or Franco's regimes) but it always has at least some qualities in common with it. Now I alluded above to the fact that I believe there's a difference between Patriotism and Nationalism. Here's a short "thumbnail" sketch, colloquially expressed, of what the differences are IMO. Admittedly it may suffer from over simplification (plus there are those who might disagree with the terms and nomenclature used, for example, what I call "Nationalism", my frequent contributor to this site, Francois, calls "false nationalism"), but I do believe it is in the main accurate.
Patriotism="I love my country!" or even "My country is the best!"
Nationalism="My country rules, and yours sucks!'
Then we graduate to the more extreme forms, which go even beyond the description of "Jingoism", and which can be expressed by "We rule, you suck; and in fact, you suck so bad as a people, and are so unworthy of a country of your own, that we are going to conquer it, annihilate or deport all of your kind, and take it over for ourselves, because we deserve to have it instead of you, and because we can!"
So I'm opposed to "Nationalism" to begin with. But above and beyond that, I find that even from a pure historical standpoint, even divorcing my own feelings from my relationship with the Albanian community, I believe that the legacy of Serbian National(Social)ism (the thing that gave us WW I among other things, remember?) is every bit as dangerous as German National Socialism, and far more pernicious and tenacious. And hence I am committed among other things to its exposure and eventual destruction.
Finally Zlatan, I want to thank you for giving us more exposure and publicity, even though that was not your intent I'm sure. And as I said above, I'm hoping that eventually EVERY Serbian and Serb supporter who shares your opinions will know about us eventually, too! And of course that those who are "on the fence", or misguided, or undecided as to how they feel about Kosova, will take it as an opportunity to come here and check us out and get "The Real Truth". Oh, and also I noticed you decided to copy my style of doing the links to other sites too. Well, I guess as the old saying goes, "If you're going to steal, steal from the best", right? As far as my being a "Serbophobe" goes, I guess I don't really see it. I mean, I'm not afraid of Weird Al Yankovic, or Karl Malden, or Natasha Kandic (though I'm sure you and those like you are afraid of her), or Fr. Sava Janjevic, or anyone like that. But if by it you mean that I am someone who detests Serbian National(Social)ism as epitomised by people like Vasa Cubrillovic, Vojislav Seslj, Nikola Velirimovic, Arkan, Vojislav Kostunica, etc., and believes it needs to be annihilated totally, completely, and utterly off the face of the planet for the good of all, not the least being the Serbs and their own future, then not only am I one, but am proudly so!
