Anarchists Fight... er, parked cars and family businesses?

Well, it is hard to get more bonkers than this story featuring our Cambridge Anarchists who seem to have taken up the class struggle against... family-owned car dealerships. Forget the usual targets of their bile, like multinational corporations, the Cenotaph or the various branches of law enforcement, this time the small family enterprise in a nice street is the source of 'evil' that must be punished. Bonkers.

However, the anarchist website is worth a visit, if only in the hope that it is a massive practical joke.

What caught my eye was the comrades' astonishment that there is such a thing as "Neo-Nazi Bolshevism?!" No kidding. Hitler and his odious henchmen were 'National Socialists', a description which was shortend to 'Nazi'. As Wikipedia notes:

Nazism (Nationalsozialismus, National Socialism) was the ideology and practice of the Nazi Party and of Nazi Germany.

Just to repeat: the ideology was National Socialism. It was the one that brought us Kristallnacht and the ultimate 'Neo-Nazi Bolshevist' innovation: the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.
