"nach abgelegtem Abitur"

still just kids...

I couldn't help but notice a link to the skinhead band Noie Werte on the website. Hmm, I wonder...

But in the last post you directed your readers to an interview with Leon de Winter at ...SPON! I guess the message is: "We hate it, but can't live without it."

Note from David: Actually, we frequently link to SPON articles produced by Hendryk Broder. Occasionally, but only rarely, do you find a non-Broder article at SPON that's worth reading.

Or maybe the message is: "Spiegel Online - even a broken clock is right twice a day."

I get the feeling that many German teenagers are politically activ as blog members. That's fine and good. However, the fact that the majority of these green and ignorant kids belong already to the political Left is worrysome.

Germany is rapidly becoming a third-world country with third-rate inhabitants. The decline of my home country is evident: The more it goes down the drain, the more Germans boast about their moral superiority over more successful countries. The extreme right and the extreme left are almost indistinguishable in their total ignorance.

@Peter P. Haase:

This might change. I was myself a glowing socialist when I was 19 - not for very long, however. 15 years later, I am firmly at home in the conservative camp. After all, as they say, a conservative is a liberal mugged by reality.

Remember what Franz Josef Strauss said: If you're not a socialist in your youth, you have no heart. If you're still a socialist as an adult, you have no mind.

@Peter P. Haase:

We have no Fox News here, and no conservative Talkradio either. Lefties like Haim Saban put billions of Dollars into their agenda (buying the Kirch Media Group including the TV channels Pro 7 and N24), while Murdoch is apparently unwilling to do the same; or starting a conservative News Channel here in Germany.

The media here is still like the US media in the 80ies. In fact, I wonder why the conservative US Media does so little to "spread the word". The Left doesn't hesitate.

Why will Germans are going to starve? Well, lets take a closer look at people like WACHTMEISER.

His insanity requires that he is supervised 24/7 in his padded cell. He permanently needs a doctor and because he mixes up food and toilet also some additional cleaning personnel. And despite brain surgery and eating all these expensive pills he still wants his sharp lawyer all the time to sue someone.

Why can't we deport this guy to the USA?

Hmm - seems we have a real "Querfront" here: socialist propaganda and links to the Neo-Nazi band "Noie Werte", combined with a recommendation to read SPON.

A wonderfully naiive kid ...

@ Solitudinarian:

Exactly. SPIEGEL ONLINE is the broken clock that is right two times a day. And those two times of day are called token authors Broder and Malzahn.

A few interesting observations on anti-Americanism:

"Europe is seen neither as a potent ally nor as a serious potential rival, like China. 'It’s an old people’s home!' said an American friend who attended both school and university in England. As the conservative pundit Tucker Carlson remarked in an exchange on CNN’s Crossfire: 'Who cares what the Europeans think? The EU spends all of its time making sure that British bologna is sold in kilos not pounds. The whole continent is increasingly irrelevant to American interests.'"

"Anti-Americanism and anti-Europeanism are at opposite ends of the political scale. European anti-Americanism is mainly to be found on the left, American anti-Europeanism on the right. The most outspoken American Euro-bashers are neoconservatives using the same sort of combative rhetoric they have habitually deployed against American liberals."

"Anti-Europeanism is not symmetrical with anti-Americanism. (...) Anti-Americanism is a real obsession for entire countries—notably for France, as Jean-François Revel has recently argued. Anti-Europeanism is very far from being an American obsession. In fact, the predominant American popular attitude toward Europe is probably mildly benign indifference, mixed with impressive ignorance."

"Robert Kagan argues that Europe has moved into a Kantian world of “laws and rules and transnational negotiation and cooperation,” while the United States remains in a Hobbesian world where military power is still the key to achieving international goals (even liberal ones)."

Here's more.

"Why can't we deport this guy to the USA?"

Like hell you will!!

We don't need his type overhere. We would not even want him to ever dare to leave his plane upon arrival :-) :-)

Although it is defenitely worth mentioning that he suggests reading SPON, you unfortunately just cut the picture above the statement part, in which the author of the page states that he is distancing himself from anti-americanism.
That obviously doesn't mean that he's not anti-american, but still interesting how you edited this picture. (I hope that's not an "outrageous suggestion" again...)

Ray and or David -- good catch. It's hilarious.

FJ Strauss said this? Winston Churchill is known for an almost identical aphorism.

I'm curious about this too. The answer must be either (a)not enough market for Fox News-type services, or (b)expectation of excessive regulatory or other burdens to be imposed by rent-seeking lefties and politicians.

Didn't Murdoch buy 'TM9' some years ago? This was the first round the clock shopping TV, with lottery and games and cooking shows.

Unfortunately he made a soccer and sports channel of it.

Poor guy. Housewifes don't watch soccer in Germany. So he had to sell it again.

@267:

I'm tempted to say "Great minds think alike" but more probably FJS was citing Churchill... ;-)

"Annymous Coward" ... now that's embarrassing ... ;-) PIMF.

@ "The Doctor" (=Amihasser)
Now that your identity has been verified, your are definitely going to get sued. My lawyer is a cruel and merciless person, and so am I. As I've promised you before, I enjoy suing. You probably won't land in jail (unless you're on parole right now), but you can expect to pay a decent fine. Your total lack of remorse will leave a lasting impression with the judge. You should have listened when I warned you! How about some remorse now?
