Lions Club

Postby swampash » Fri Nov 24, 2017 9:27 am

Was at a charity concert last night that was organised by the Lions Club.
In the interests of brevity there were several dubious moments, one of which was seriously spine-chilling: in a Nuremberg Rally sort of way.
I always thought they were just a charitable organisation, but now have my doubts.
Anyone here know anything about them?

Give them a massive swerve. You have been warned.

I googled them, read their "aims" and it all sounds a bit vague which makes me suspicious

What was the dubious moment, Swamps?

A lot of those "old boys" clubs are either fronts, off shoots, or just second rate versions of the Masons... they portray themselves as harmless little "fraternities of fellowship"... don't you believe it...

It did cross my mind that they might be a recruiting salon for the masons. Their founder was a mason, and what better than to dress up your recruiting mission in a charitable wrapper?
The concert was interspersed with sketches that appeared to have quite chauvinistic undertones. This reached a crescendo just before the interval with a lengthy musical piece that wove together various strands including recordings that seemed to reference a divided East and West Germany plus the EU anthem and segued into the chorus chanting 'wir sind das Volk'. This has sound origins, being the chant that was used in the anti-DDR demonstrations, but has more recently been appropriated by Pegida (the acronym for 'Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West'). The overall effect was unsettling, to say the least, but turned thoroughly chilling when the piece segued again into the German national anthem, at which point 99.9% of the audience leapt in unison to their feet, as if pulled up by the invisible strings of a puppeteer.

Fucking hell I see your nuremberg comparisons. Sounds like a crafty way of building populist right wing / nationalism.

...the Germans can be pretty chauvinistic at the best of times, but this was on a whole new level.
And. Not a black face to be seen - not in the band, the chorus, or the audience...

Aye german nationalism is toxic as fuck. Look what happened last time it was whipped up and manipulated by a fella from austria.

So yeah I wouldn't be surprised if this Lions Club shite was some Mason thing that leaned to the right or even to fascism, because fascism is good for capitalists, and that's essentially what the masons are. Fascism is great for business, like when nazis came to power investment boomed because fascism at its heart anti working class, it breaks unions, it whips workers to produce more with less rights etc.
