The American imperialists will burn to the ground!

Phil - I can almost see that erection of your right arm. :o)

And now for something completely different...

You frigging American imperialists, judging other people whom you exploit, you will burn, all of you! Your whole country is a mistaken experiment that will blow up in your faces.

PHIL. WHATEVER YOU DO, PLEASE DON'T STOP TALKING. PLEASE PUUULEEEZE POST SOME MORE. AND DON'T FORGET TO MENTION WHO YOUR IDEOLOGICAL PALS AND BRETHREN ARE!!

---"Your whole country is a mistaken experiment that will blow up in your faces."---

We've been reading that for over 200 years. As other governments come and go, we still remain.

"PHIL. WHATEVER YOU DO, PLEASE DON'T STOP TALKING. PLEASE PUUULEEEZE POST SOME MORE. AND DON'T FORGET TO MENTION WHO YOUR IDEOLOGICAL PALS AND BRETHREN ARE!!"

Why, you want to torture me in Abu Ghraib, you sadistic American pig? Yankee Swine!!!

Phil,

Who bunched your panties? You need to lighten up bud( you are not a member of the German Joke Writers Union are you? What is the motto of Lufthansa? You will enjoy the flight. A busload of Germans go to Heaven. They get off the bus and on the walkway come to a split. There is a sign and a arrow pointing to the left that says, “Heaven” and another sign pointing to the right that says, “Lectures on Heaven”. They walk to the lecture.)

Anyways, I’m from Florida and don’t like being called Yankee. Cracker, Redneck, Hillbilly, Conch fine.

Lastly, what's the German dig on pigs and swine? They are tasty, Germans seem to like them and the little pink beer kegs are as clean as their keepers.

Hey, don't be so hard on Phil. It is obvious his rear section had an unsavory encounter with some of his cell mates after he'd been arrested from the G8 summit scene.

"Hey, don't be so hard on Phil. It is obvious his rear section had an unsavory encounter with some of his cell mates after he'd been arrested from the G8 summit scene."

Yeah, the G8-Niggers weren't kind on me.

Anyway, f*ck you Americans. You should have been all gassed back 60 years ago, good riddance!

Dear Florida Swine (Carl), yes I like swine too, especially "Dicke Rippe", mfg
Phil

A wise man once said that pissing off assholes is a good sign that you're doing something right.

Nochmal Phil! Nochmal!

Ah, the famous German sense of humor. I guess it's time to bust out this link again.

I found that Phil instructive, it demonstrated that "Imperialist" in fact is a codeword for Jew. Here´s some unintended humour this creature might like.

And frankly, I wonder what these wannabe concentration camp guards would do after all the killing was done and their workplace shut down for lack of demand... I mean, with all the time between bowing to Mekka five times a day.

Germans supposedly have no sense of humor, so from that aspect it is good that this stereotype is wrong.

"You frigging American imperialists, judging other people whom you exploit, you will burn, all of you!"

Perhaps my recollections are incorrect, but IIRC the biggest creator of global misery over the past 400 years has been Europe. I'll be happy to expand upon this subject if you'd like.

I like Phil

Hopefully he will go far in German politics. He should. He has a very popular position. Maybe he can push for Germany to offically declare their withdrawal from NATO.

Lou - "the biggest creator of global misery over the past 400 years has been Europe. I'll be happy to expand upon this subject if you'd like."

Of course you´re welcome to do so, but that would make some strange bedfellows:

Ayyub Axel Koehler, chairman of the Council of Muslims, and Bekir Alboga, spokesman for the DITIB religious authority, were blunt in a debate with Lutheran leaders at a church congress this week in the German city of Cologne.

More than 2,000 Lutherans crammed a hot, sweaty pavilion in Cologne to hear the debate on religious freedom. The politically correct may have expected compliments and blurring of differences, but it was not to be.

Koehler told the church-people that Europe should be ashamed of the 'trail of blood' that it had left throughout the world down the centuries.

He said it was a step in the right direction that the two sides were talking, but he finished by slamming the EKD chairman, Bishop Wolfgang Huber, for 'unnecessarily driving a wedge between Christians and Muslims.'

Koehler, a German who converted to Islam in 1963, questioned why the Protestant leader was repeatedly and unnecessarily saying that the two religions worship a different God.

In contrast to that, I would say that Phil and Ayyub Axel Koehler seem to worship the same thing, whatever it is.

Ahem, why don't you don't you delete this sick BS?

No, please no! Leave it! It is funny to first see someone participating in discussions before, pretending to be really objective and all that, other than this oh-so-biased website here ("Why? Is critizism of Israel not allowed?"), and then witnessing him going totally berserk the next moment, showing his true face. While you knew it was exactly that which was boiling under the surface all the time.
Leave it. Not in general, but in this specific comment section, for showcasing and studying purposes of an ill-bred species.

Alex N. is right. It's quite interesting to observe the transformation.

While you knew it was exactly that which was boiling under the surface all the time.

I must say that I thought initially that "Phil" is somehow making jokes, albeit bad ones. But then he kept going, and eventually the "jokes" weren't jokes anymore, but pure hate.

I am still not sure what his intentions were, but if those were not jokes then no commentary is necessary. If they were jokes and "Phil" believes they are somehow funny, he is beyond pathetic and needs professional help. No matter how you look at it, he has a loose screw.

That's why the world of the internet is so wonderful. It offers all frustrated losers a world wide stage with real humans facing them, instead of only their bored dog. The novelty of it is extremely tempting and the loser will never restraint himself. It's a freak show and you don't have to pay for cable TV or satellite radio to watch it unfold.

@WhatDoIKnow
"It's a freak show and you don't have to pay for cable TV or satellite radio to watch it unfold."

Are you talking about yourself when you look into a mirror?

See, you Americans can't even take any jokes, how about developing a little sense of humour about a couple of harmless jokes.

As someone living in Germany, I am so ashamed of this Phil. People like this guy are becoming more and more in this country. It's shocking to see, that you only have to scratch the surface...

It appears to be running out of steam, clinging to pathological projections that have already been predicted by the audience. Now it is even trying a pun on Der Spiegel.

msp - Shame is a gateway to improvement. Don´t lose too much sleep over it, a threat that has been luring below the surface all along actually is much worse than one that is openly visible.

Since I'm what Germans call Ausläner, foreigner, though born and raised in Germany, I am confronted with certain aspects of that what is below the surface from time to time. It's only so sad to see that it's becoming bigger and bigger. There is this certain kind of hate, which just is there, totally unmotivated, but it's there and it's growing. There are days where one who is sensible enough for all this just can't stand it. I've noticed myself thinking more and more about leaving this country, but where to go?!

Now since I've been carefully observing the german society for years, I can say, that what's said about German humor is so true:
For Germans jokes and humor are only an instrument of hate. I'd guess that roughly every second joke in German media (comedy shows etc.) is about east Germans. Most of the time it is not even a joke, but the speaking out of a digusting hatred. The other main target of jokes are gays. You can already see, that for some years now, the Ausländer are becoming the targets of more and more jokes, even in the main stream media. Oh, not to mention the George W Bush-Jokes. (In the normal life, mouth to mouth, the jew-jokes, Judenwitze, never stopped to circulate). It all makes so sad. German humor, it's horror. And how often it is then stressed that every joke has a core of truth. One could say: if the german joke is making fun of you today, be careful what's to be tomorrow.

@ msp

I'm German and it's certainly true that there's a great amount of hatred against America, Israel and the West in general, fueled by left-wing media and unprincipled politicians. However, I don't really see so much hatred against east Germans (although there are surely still prejudices from both sides) or against gays. It's true that there are quite some jokes about them in comedy shows, but that's more because German comedy usually isn't clever or creative and mainly consists of always the same stereotypes and vulgar language. You will certainly see no bashing of gays or foreigners in our media in the way they constantly and openly diminish the US.

ok, admittedly I've been away for a few weeks and perhaps I've missed something but are you guys sure Phil just isn't providing some over-the-top (albeit clumsy) satire?

As for the 'satire' provided by Speigel I must say, it doesn't speak well for German creativity.

I also think Phil was joking, and we just don't appreciate that kind of humor.
But there are also some Germans who don't appreciate that kind of humor either:

msp - I know that feeling. Most individuals in this country are permanently living within some form of resentment, which provides meaning to their lives, or more precisely the closest available substitute thereof. Attack that resentment, and they will begin to feel this profound lack of meaning in themselves, and therefore resent you as the messenger of the bad news. Actually, as a German, it is still quite difficult not to develop along that pattern, since the history of this country requires at least resenting Nazis, and once you do that you risk transferring it to any other group. Which group the resentment is directed against to a certain extent depends on the community you´re socialising with. Anyways, the theory of humour is a tough nut to crack, and it ain´t funny.

Pamela - As Alex said, watch its appearance on the Rostock riots thread. To me it looks like a genuine troll, not like a sock puppet. And Der Spiegel may be clumsy, but if they really want to be an equal-opportunity offender they could at least have tried satirising Ayyub Axel Koehler.

Thanks FranzisM, I went back and read the Rostock thread. Zionism is collectivism? You have to be a Jew to live in Israel? Yikes!! The ignorance on display is rather breathtaking, I must say, when the facts are so easily available. Anyhoo, I still find it somewhat unrealistic to think that Phil's actual sentiment is that Americans should have been gassed 60 years ago. To me that sounds like hyperbole for the shock value - when in fact it's boring, like a 12 year old using the most vile expletives he can think of just to send the adults into paroxyisms of outrage.

BOO!!

Pamela - Who knows? One possible explanation for the sheer irrationality that is at the core of antisemitism is that it is an infantile trantrum, only that it has achieved supremacy over an entire culture, such as if a raging kid suddenly had supernatural powers at its disposal. Imagine that the antisemitic collective, which has been raging against methaphorical vermin all along, achieves unrestrained power and tells the state bureaucracies to do something about it. What will happen besides one clueless man shifting responsibility to another? At some point someone will accept the metaphor at face value, and remember how a professional pest exterminator treats a vermin infestation. So the government apparatus translates the infantile tantrum into a set of practical instructions. Unrealistic? I guess Phil has just been telling the full implications of the "locusts" mantra with which we were swamped in the recent years.

Anyways - these are interesting times. My religion is illegal, my country is insane, my family is wallowing in self-pity, and I am going broke. Any of you need to hire a self-made pundit on global affairs? Click on my handle.

An infantile tantrum w/delusions of supernatural powers has already reached that level of supremacy, FrancisM.

It goes by the moniker of THE EU. It's Mephestopholes is the U.N.

Panela - Certainly it can be said that the Maastricht treaty has put the question whether antisemitism can achieve supremacy over this world into the hands of an entity bigger than the U.S.A.

However, how it will play out does largely depend on whether Europe will establish a Constitution that deserves the name. Have you noticed that the failed draft has been rejected not because it is too collectivist but the other way round? There´s a lot of confusion here. As an European, I am a constitutional minimalist, I believe the fewer words it will have the more individuals will read it. Let´s keep it simple.

It also can be said that a successful development of the European Union into a democratic republic is intrinsically linked to the transformation of the United Nations into a reliable administrator of single-serving energy.

However, describing that entity in demonological terms may be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Have you noticed that your main anti-UN Presidential candidate is Ron Paul? This option may not be available without the rest of his platform. My impression is America already chose its approach to building a new world order when Woodrow Wilson accepted the challenge of the planetary war. Let´s bring it on.

I understand the desire because I share it, but there is no convenient position in all this from which it would be equally possible to move back and forth. Not for me either.

One of two things is true. FranzisM is one of the more subtle trolls I have ever encountered or -

He is out of his fucking mind.

It also can be said that a successful development of the European Union into a democratic republic is intrinsically linked to the transformation of the United Nations into a reliable administrator of single-serving energy.

Maybe that idea should be incorporated into the new constitu - oh, no, wait - um - treaty - that Sarkozy, et. al. are going to try to shove down your collective throats.

In as few words as possible, of course.

I'm going upthread.

So you thought you'd seen the ultimate in hypocrisy? Guess again!! Check out this story. It seems that Representative Tom Lantos, a Democrat no less, gave vent to some less than charitable remarks at the expense of booster seat Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder at the recent unveiling ceremony of a new Washington monument dedicated to the victims of Communism. In fine, he declared that, if not for the fact that he was loathe to so grossly insult the prostitutes of his district, he would describe the diminutive anti-American hate exploiter as a "political whore."

But wait! It gets better. It seems that a certain Ulrich Wilhelm, described as a spokesman for the German government, "clearly and decisively" rejected the comparison of Schroeder with a whore, a sentiment with which any self-respecting hooker must certainly concur. Schoolmarm Wilhelm was, apparently, quite upset about Lantos' "unmannerly mode of referring to a former Chancellor of the German Federal Republic." Apparently the "mannerly mode" for referring to Chancellors prescribed by the current German incarnation of Emily Post is drastically different from the "mannerly mode" of referring to U.S. Presidents. Just ask Ms. Wieszorek-Zeul, whom SPON would, no doubt, describe as an "expert" in such matters.

What can you say? When the hypocrisy gets this thick, you can't really react with scorn. It's too ludicrous. All you can do is laugh.

Now that´s some American humour, Pamela. There´s a third possibility you might want to consider: New situations require new ideas.

If you think Europe had the option to go back to the status quo ante, think again: Which status quo ante? The one before the United Nations? The one before the League of Nations? The one before the American Revolution?

The document at the core of the unification will certainly incorporate some form of social justice. What exactly that is and how it is to be achieved, will depend on developments greater than Europe, such as the fall of the Al-Saud.

For details, I do again point you at the Rostock riots thread.

I almost hate to get on-topic, but this is rich: "Climate experts warn, however, that Bush’s change of direction should not be totally rejected."

As opposed to Kyoto, the US has actually done something about emissions. The secondary objective of wrecking the American economy was not achieved, but the haters can't have everything.
