message 1: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments On Sunday, I wrote a book review for the AP that ran in the Detroit Free Press. The book under review was a novel called "Displaced Persons" about Holocaust survivors putting their lives back together after the WWII.

Storm Front, the website of the Aryan Nation, apparently did not care for the review. A post on their site asked: "How much longer will the Detroit Free Press be around, as the resident savages take over..." It then added a very negative comment about Jews.

There are Nazis in Detroit?

First off Jonathan, congratulations on the review. What day did it run? I'd like to go back and read it.

As for the Detroit Nazis, I'm no authority but Resistance Records was once headquartered here.

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments I know what you mean, Cynthia. It's creepy. I've never been called a savage before, I don't think.

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments Clark, I don't have the printed paper, but the online version says, "A version of this story appears on page 5J of the Sunday, Aug. 15, 2010, print edition of the Detroit Free Press."

Thanks for the wiki link. Resistance Records: The Soundtrack of the White Revolution. Who knew?

Thanks for t..."


I still have it at home, Jonathan. I must check it out.

As for Resistance, they operated fearlessly in a town that's 75% black. Stupidity or just plain testicular fortitude?

An unholy combination of both, probably.

If you are a savage, Jonathan, I just hope I am too.

Misha (ninthwanderer) Thank you, RA. I kept scrolling through the messages waiting for a Blues Brothers joke.

That clip is just begging to be followed with this:

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments A good one, Misha. The neatly pressed, short-sleeved brown shirts were probably a tip-off, no?

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Speaking of Detroit, Clark, why is your city on fire this time? I heard it was the wind. Everyone ok?


Books Ring Mah Bell why is your city on fire this time?

I hate to think it is a practice run for Halloween...

oh yes, Nazis are in D-town for sure:

What she said.

The fires were apparently ignited by power lines downed by the wind. People aren't happy with the emergency response, nor should they be.

Luckily, all the power lines in our neighborhood are under ground.

Melissa (melissbf) | 1 comments Jonathan: Thats a great review, thank you, and because of it, Im reserving the book at my local library! It terrifies me that people can still be this ignorant about color, race and religion.

Thanks for being a "savage" and Im proud to say that if you are, than I am, too. I am also a very proud "semitic" Jew.
