ANTI-AMERICANISM IS GERMANY’S NEW ANTI-SEMITISM
The German Left at any rate. It is a useful contrast to note the response of the American public and the Bush administration to the Tsunami disaster and the gloating combined with irrational malice in Germany’s papers over hurricane Katarina. Can you imagine the U.S. doing anything but rushing aid to Germany in the advent of a natural disaster ? No wonder that sixty years later Germany’s neighbors still do not trust her – with a mindset like this the old British adage that the Germans are either at your throat or on their knees makes a lot of sense. Let’s all be glad of the wisdom that NATO showed in never allowing these people to have their own nuclear weapons.
Of these malevolent jackasses writing these editorials in Germany I wonder how many are alive only because we – we meaning the United States – kept their parent’s generation from starving and freezing to death in the years following WWII when the Russians and the French would have been gleeful to see them go under ?
