Drunk Fascist.

with 7 comments

Drink and fascism have a long history, from German beer cellars to Joerg Haider’s welcomed demise.

Apparently, this particular Austrian fascist couldn’t take his drink either, according to Reuters:

“Austrian media reported that the amount of alcohol in Haider’s blood was nearly four times the legal limit.”

    Uh-oh. I see a new Carrie Nation on the horizon, Comrades.

    I’m a reformed drunk, but an unreformed rightie. Odd.

  7. entdinglichung,


    I think what is telling, is how people react to his death, either by seeking to excuse him, blame others or generally exculpate that fascist scumbag
