True to habit, what calls itself “the Left” (nostalgic for the guillotine, for “impure blood” flowing in the streets and ever keen, 72 years after the end of the Second World War, to carry on with a Purge against now bedridden former soldiers) is saying prayers – either secular or religious – for the assassination of Donald Trump. In the United States the climate of violence directed towards the new president has already grown so strong that the justice system is overwhelmed with reports of calls for his murder: it is apparently impossible to charge so many perpetrators.
In Germany Der Spiegel is playing pretty much the same game with pretty much the same high-flown hypocrisy. See the Reuters piece of February 5: German magazine defends cover showing Trump beheading Statue of Liberty.
An extract from the beginning:
The editor-in-chief of Der Spiegel on Sunday said a front cover illustration of U.S. President Donald Trump beheading the Statue of Liberty, which split opinion at home and abroad, was a response by the German magazine to threats against democracy. […]
“Der Spiegel does not want to provoke anybody,” editor-in-chief Klaus Brinkbaeumer told Reuters TV after the cover set off a debate on Twitter and in German and international media, adding he was surprised by the impact of the illustration.
“We want to show what this is about, it’s about democracy, it’s about freedom, it’s about freedom of the press, freedom of justice and all that is seriously endangered,” he said.
“So we are defending democracy… Are these serious times? Yes they are.”
Ernst Zündel today on Donald Trump
Poor Trump doesn’t know what’s hit him!
He keeps sucking up to these creatures, invoking his Jewish daughter Ivanka, and his lovely Jewish grandchildren, his brilliant Jewish son-in-law Kushner, his many Jewish appointments as advisors, even Cabinet members etc.
The grovelling is nauseating, it’s a sad spectacle!
It’s hard to drain a swamp when you are surrounded by so many alligators!
This thing is not going to end well!
Not for him, and certainly not for the world at large!
His Iran policy is unethical, hypocritical, and will bear evil fruits, just like his Israeli settlements policy!
Arrogance grounded in ignorance, wrapped in bullying bluster. God help us.
