Nazi war hero’s fury as Ukip poster outside his home defaced with swastikas
A 90-YEAR-OLD war veteran who risked his life to fight the Nazis spoke of his fury last night after finding his property daubed with swastikas because he had put a Ukip poster in his front garden.

Frank Moody was only 20 when, as a member of the Royal Artillery, he took part in one of the Second World’s War most bitter battles, at Monte Cassino.
The savage series of assaults, aimed at breaking through German defences to liberate Rome from the Nazis, cost 55,000 Allied lives.
Mr Moody, a parish councillor for 36 years, woke on Friday to find the posters in his garden daubed with swastikas, while a picture of Ukip candidate Sandra James had been defaced with a Hitler moustache.
Speaking from his home in West Willow, Hampshire, the war veteran vented his fury saying: “I fought Hitler in the war against the Nazis, so it made me very angry to find swastikas outside my gate.
“This is supposed to be a democratic country.
“That’s what I fought for.
“Anyone should be allowed to put up any political posters they want and not be intimidated by yobbos like that.”
Mr Moody and his twin sister, Mary, both defected to Ukip five years ago after decades supporting the Conservatives.
Last night, Mary said: “My poor brother has been very shaken by what happened.
“People may not agree with his views, but they should respect him and his right to have them.”
Ms James, running against Conservative incumbent Caroline Nokes for the key marginal seat of Romsey and Southampton North in May, said: “One of the posters was 15ft high on a tree, so this must have been carefully planned. You’re not just going to be able to reach up and do that.
“Frank was very upset by this.
“He already fought the Nazis once, now he’s having to fight against people who frankly have a complete misunderstanding about what the democratic process is all about.”
She said police had been informed.
Ukip leader Nigel Farage, meanwhile, told of his “disgust” at the actions of Britain First, a splinter group of the British National Party, which is “hijacking” Ukip support for its own ends.

Last week members rounded on a group of Left-wing activists said to have been responsible for ambushing Mr Farage while he enjoyed a Sunday lunch with his family at a Public House in Downe, Kent.
The group, which claimed to take its vigilante actions on Ukip’s behalf, boasted in a video about how it made the protesters “cower”.
Speaking last night, Mr Farage said: “These so-called street fighters have tried to hobby horse publicity on the back of the abuse of my family.
“Not only are they as bad as those who barged into a quiet pub but, by doing what they have done, they diminish the original insult.
“The fact is today most intimidation in public life comes from the Left, but these Britain First idiots are just as bad. We don’t need them, we don’t want them.”
During last November’s Rochester by-election, sparked when Tory Mark Reckless defected to Ukip, Britain First proclaimed “a vote for us is a vote for Ukip”.
And the group’s Facebook site scoffed when Ukip said it was not allied to Britain First, saying: “We understand Ukip has to play the ‘political game’ so they have to distance themselves from us.”
Last night Mr Farage said: “We live in a democracy, they have a right to campaign for their beliefs, but not by breaking down doors, especially in our name.
“There are boundaries, and both the extreme Right and the extreme Left cross those boundaries.
“There are two or three Ukip offices vandalised every week. Our activists are abused and spat on.
“These are nasty, nasty acts.
“The difference is we think they are misguided, they think we are morally evil.”
So a guy who has fought against Hitler and therefor is a war hero and is now in a right wing party (which among others stands for a rise in the military budget) is smeared in a campaign, blaming him to be a Nazi himself and he is disgusted about that, saying that to stand for right-wing-positions is only his democratic right.
First I´d like to say something about the Nazis themselves and the thing about war heroes. Now it is a common misunderstanding in Britain that Nazis were only a German thing. They weren´t at that time, they had a lot of support in Britain itself and they aren´t still, as we can see, best example is in today´s Ukraine or in America, where they are quite strong too and they are made and backed up by Nato.

Then let´s look at that war hero thing. I know most Britons think that wars are evil but there are also a lot that think that this does not go for WW2, that this was an exception, a justified war, that had freed the world from a plague, that had also freed Germany.
Now that´s nothing but a fairy tale, nothing but allied war propaganda, history written by the victors and bend to their purposes. For this war was nothing but just another imperialistic war waged for loot and profit, where a corrupt government send common people to die for the rich, organised by banksters and corporations, there was not a spec of moral justification in it, only those that had been fabricated afterwards (to what extent I cannot prove, only assume). And it did not free Germany, it just enslaved it even more to the Anglo-American money empire.
The Nazis surely had been bad and deranged, but they were nothing in comparison to those forces they were back then elected to fight and, yes, it is also a common misunderstanding – they had been elected in a democratic process, they were the dominant political movement in Germany at that time, backed up by almost any German. In 1936, there was hardly an opposition, they were the political back-lash of all the imperialistic forces united against Germany in an unjust war, an unjust peace treaty and ongoing humiliations that Hitler finally put an end to. In 1936 he had God like status in Germany and – in an imperialistic world only government by politics of power – it was well deserved, he had freed Germany of the allied tyranny, which then only came back in 1945.
Only we know now today, and most of us are still misguided about this fact (in a sort of Orwellian new speak, fascism is “democracy” or “anti-fascism” and oppression is “freedom and liberty” and having an imperialistic world empire is “protecting the world against communism and terrorism” and that exploited vassal states are “friends and allies” and so on) that we can´t stop imperialism by another imperialistic act, that the only way to achieve justice and peace in this world is to put an end to all militarism and statism, to free us of the financial mafia and capitalism, to free us from any nationalism and to put the people first, not governments.
The EU was a disappointing failure so far, it only widened the gap that this century of wars has opened, for it was an imperialistic act too, real friendship will only arise from a mutual understanding and this means that any myths about history have to be corrected.
Now this man is grossly wrong, when he blames Nazism on Germany, meaning that he has thereby freed himself of any possible Nazi slander by fighting Germany and is also grossly wrong by saying that right-wing positions are democratic, for there are not, they are nothing but Nazism in a milder form. What the Ukip wants is not that much different from what the NSDAP wanted, only for Britons of course!
So to smear his posters with swastikas is nothing different from smearing the country with swastikas, for that´s what he does, in a milder form. Some call this vandalism, some political protest and that ends justify the means. The deeper meaning is that it is not only him but all of Britain that says that Nazism ended 1945 by allied forces, when in fact only German (Austrian and Italian) Nazism ended, in other countries it never did.
The Ukrainian regime is a Nazi regime and they were installed by the Nato and they are heavily supported by the British government, only hypocrites would deny this fact.
Don´t blow swastikas on Ukip posters out of proportion, by giving it too much attention.
