Der Spiegel: Germans Being German


COMMENT: The fall­out from the euro­zone cri­sis is pro­duc­ing some inter­est­ing phe­nom­e­na, not the least of which is the open expres­sion of Ger­man chau­vin­ism. In a recent sto­ry,  the nor­mal­ly respectable Der Spiegel unleashed a remark­able com­ment about Ital­ians.

Can you imag­ine an Amer­i­can edi­tor, even an edi­tor of one of Rup­pert’s Rags [Mur­doch], let­ting a com­ment such as Herr Fleis­chauer penned make it to press?

Even the flat­u­lent ESPN was oblig­ed to fire a head­line writer for his com­ment about Jere­my Lin (the Chi­nese-Amer­i­can point guard of the New York Knicks bas­ket­ball team.)

“Ger­many vs. the Rest of Europe” by Floyd Nor­ris; New York Times; 2/17/2012.

. . . . With­in each class, atti­tudes are hard­en­ing against the oth­er. “The birth defect of the euro was to put very dif­fer­ent cul­tures of eco­nom­ic activ­i­ty in the strait­jack­et of a sin­gle cur­ren­cy,” a com­men­ta­tor, Jan Fleis­chhauer, wrote in the Ger­man week­ly Der Spiegel after an Ital­ian cruise ship ran aground last month.

“Be hon­est,” he added. “Did it sur­prise any­one that the unlucky cap­tain of the Cos­ta Con­cor­dia is Ital­ian?” He asked whether any­one could imag­ine that a Ger­man, or even British, cap­tain would have behaved as the Ital­ian did.

An Ital­ian news­pa­per, Il Gior­nale, fired back with a front-page arti­cle denounc­ing the Der Spiegel com­men­tary. “We are per­sons to avoid, a bur­den for Europe,” the author, Alessan­dro Sal­lusti, wrote. “The Ger­mans are a supe­ri­or race. We have already read that in the speech­es of Hitler.”

Ger­mans are increas­ing­ly angry about hav­ing to bail out Greece and oth­er coun­tries, while those coun­tries react bit­ter­ly to being forced to take orders from Berlin. The Finan­cial Times reports that “a right-wing Greek news­pa­per depicts Angela Merkel, Germany’s chan­cel­lor, in a Nazi uni­form above the head­line ‘Mem­o­ran­dum macht frei’ — an allu­sion to the mem­o­ran­dum in which Greece’s for­eign cred­i­tors demand more aus­ter­i­ty mea­sures and to the Auschwitz slo­gan.”. . . .

  1. As far as I know ‚Dave Emory is the only researcher out there who has ever exposed the fact of the Bor­mann Orga­ni­za­tion using Jews and Jew­ish orga­ni­za­tions as fronts for thi­er oper­a­tions.
    Seems kind of like a rever­sal of the old stereo­type of Jews being the “string pullers” behind the scenes manip­u­lat­ing “Gen­tiles” and “Gen­tile Insti­tu­tions” as their fronts.
    Whos manip­u­lat­ing who? Some­times its hard to tell the dif­fer­ence between the tail and the head of the dog.

  2. @Mike: “Some­times its hard to tell the dif­fer­ence between the tail and the head of the dog.” Yep, so true. I think that’s part of the ruse, though, because the world crime net­work has ben­e­fit­ted very much from anti-Semi­tism. And sad­ly, some dupes and/or idiots have real­ly bought into the ‘Jew­ish World Order’ crap.
    So yes, it is def­i­nite­ly a rever­sal of the old stereo­type, no ques­tion about it. And again, who real­ly ben­e­fits? Only the Under­ground Reich and their allies, that’s who.

  3. @Steven L: Reminds me of that old song Lit­tle Red Rid­ing Hood ‚“Gonna Keep my sheep suit on till I get to Grand­ma’s house”.
    Nazis in “Jew suits”, its sort of like the ulti­mate ruse. But then Dave has com­ment­ed on the extreme far sight­ed­ness of the Ger­mans, the com­plex­i­ty of the Ger­man lan­guage.
    Dave is like a voice in the wilder­ness. The Ger­mans are....still com­ing!
