Perhaps someone might clarify a point about this slogan: 'the rich are our misfortune'. It is the slogan of the Incubus blog. It is close to the slogan 'The Jews are our misfortune', widely published by the Nazis and attributed to von Treitschke. I find it offensive.Given Nazi propaganda it could read 'The rich Jews are our misfortune'. Check this in Wikipedia.Treitschke was one of the few important public figures who supported antisemitic attacks which became prevalent from 1878 onwards. He accused German Jews of refusing to assimilate into German culture and society, and attacked the flow of Jewish immigrants from Russian Poland. Treitschke has often been misquoted (predominantly by the National Socialists and contemporary leftists) as having coined the phrase "Die Juden sind unser Unglück!" ("The Jews are our misfortune!") adopted as a motto by the Nazi publication Der Stürmer several decades later. He actually remarked that "Everywhere in Germany you hear the same phrase, 'The Jews are our misfortune.'" Because of his respected status, Treitschke's remarks aroused widespread controversy.[2]
