Certified BNOC and former Sky News pundit Peter Van Onselen has just thrown a huge haymaker at the lefty idiots who don’t know history good like he do. Van Onselen, who lectures in Political Science at UWA, sent shockwaves through the left-wing historical establishment when he revealed that “Nazism is national socialism which is considered a branch of socialism.” Inspired.

This coup de grace of intellectual gymnastics was met with a tirade of abuse from people incapable of understanding PVO’s universe brain approach to history. Disregarding the fact that the Nazis eradicated Germany’s unions, espoused total inequality of people on the basis of race, and adopted the mantle of national socialism deliberately to lure the working class away from democratic socialist groups, there’s no denying, even for the most thick skulled Twitter user, that National Socialism does sound a lot like socialism.

Van Onselen followed up this initial tweet with a slew of other revelations:

“The Greens are actually considered a branch of IRA, because they share the colour green with Sinn Fein, the left wing Irish republican-party.”

“The Xbox 360, released in 2005, is the three hundred and sixtieth iteration of Microsoft’s successful line of video game consoles.”

“I left Sky News because they didn’t feature as many weather segments as I had envisioned when I joined the station.”



While sneering leftists scrambled for cover, PVO threw a right hook in the form of a little something called horseshoe theory, which definitely wasn’t an attempt to distance himself completely from the tweet he’d made moments earlier. Bang!

Needless to say, van Onselen is well on his way to cementing his place in the German historiographical canon. For UWA students who want to hear more from the big man, he currently lectures POLS2202: Australian Politics: Institutions, Campaigning and Spin, a rare opportunity to hear an actual print media celebrity list how many politicians he’s chummy with.
