Take back History

Is it not funny how far right hate groups, racists, fascists and nazi’s all use the symbolism and imagery of the Knights Templar. Now the thing they do not seem to get is that the Knights were initially an extremist branch of the Holy Catholic Church of Rome. Soon however they fell out of favour due to their extremely violent but effective behaviours and their power gains fighting the Moors.
Now the Moors were the founders of Islam, and were brave and aggressive warriors. They were effective in guerilla tactics as well as on the more regimented battlefield. The Knights Templar early on began to respect them as warriors and by the end of the crusades as friends. Many Knights Templar stayed on in Palestine and the Middle East, settling and even switching from Christianity in favour of Islam.
Those that returned home did so often with Moors as friends not slaves or servants. Some Moors were even awarded land and title in France and England.
The Knights Templar was a multinational organisation and soon fell foul of Rome, to the extent of it being outlawed by the church.
To use the emblem of this order as a Racist image is actually a display of how uneducated these fools truly are. The red cross on a white background, later adopted as the flag of England does not belong to Fascism but the basis of multicultural understanding. An ensign of peoples learning to respect the differences of others.
So when you see the Nazi flag wavers or groups calling themselves Knights Templar remember that these muppets truly have no knowledge or understanding of the past. They just ride the bandwagon of fools.

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
