Top German journalist living in Highlands accused of comparing SNP with Hitler
Top German journalist living in Highlands accused of comparing SNP with Hitler

20 May 2015 by Martin Little

A top German journalist has sparked a row by appearing to compare the SNP with Hitler.

Reiner Luyken, who is based in the Highland village of Achiltibuie and writes for the respected Die Zeit newspaper, told readers that SNP ideology was “modern national socialism light”.

Hitler lead the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, the first word of which was abbreviated to Nazi.

Mr Luyken, 64, informed two million Germans that the Scottish Nationalists were “glorifying the moral superiority of one’s own nation”.

He also claimed that the SNP regarded Unionists as “Quislings” – a reference to the Norwegian Nazi who ran his country during German occupation.

Mr Luyken’s remarks, which he translated into English and posted on his Facebook page, have been branded by politicians and locals as “ludicrous” and “delusional”. (...)

Top German journalist? Puhlease!


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

I wanted to write something similar. You can't use these words all in a row. LOL
