November 9th Society – an apology

It has been pointed out by one of my correspondents that me calling the neo-nazi November 9th Society “retards” is unfair.

Whilst I’m not someone who is insistent on using the correct terminology in every instance, I have reflected on this and agree that it was an unfortunate term to use – not least because of nazis’ fetishism of “purity” and elimination of those considered to be “impure”, including disabled people.

Calling nazis “retards” is unfair on retards.
