GERMANS INFECTED BY HOLLANDAISE-HYPOCRISY VIRUS; WAS KONNEN WIR ZU TUN?

Frau Merkel expresses delight at the flavor of the Hollandaise sauce served up by the French president’s head chef at the Versailles Palace.  I guess she doesn’t like broccoli.  Or is it Hollandaise?

 

The history of man is filled with ironies.  Horace poked fun at how the superior Greek civilization turned the tables on the barbaric Roman conqueror: “Graecia capta ferum victorem cepit”.  In 1968, an Irish poet gave a lecture at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he said:  “The British gave us a language and we gave them back a literature.”  I was in attendance at that time and laughed myself silly.  He was right.  Tables turned.

The Germans conquered France – rolled over the vaunted Maginot Line and “voila!” – a picture of the imperious-looking Adolph Hitler with the iconic La Tour Eiffel in the background.  But now, the tables are turned again, for the French government has apparently infected its German counterpart with the French disease du jour: HYPOCRISY!!!  I told my readers yesterday that the French were perversely vindictive.  Now, my readers can see what I meant.

I’m afraid that the genius of Germanic scientific thought will not be able to deal with this scourge any time soon.  Why, just two days ago, the German Regierung through its arch-Weibstuuck, Kanzlerin Merkel, barred all Syrians in Germany from voting in the June 3 Presidential Elections!  One of my wife’s nephews works in Southern Germany and is effectively denied a basic right afforded in all democratic countries.  But how democratic is the German Republic?

In Hollywood, Germans, like the English, have a certain pigeonhole into which they are stuffed whenever their tell-tale accents are heard.  I’ve written about the English being the best villains in Hollywood and the reasons for that. Inevitably, American heroes reflect the “aw shucks” self-effacement that Americans cherish as pioneers, settlers and land-grabbers.  Our Yankee heroes usually speak with that nondescript Mid-Western timbre made famous and recognizable by Walter Cronkite and John Chancellor or with a Southern drawl like Dan Rather or Jim Lehrer.  In order to make our heroes vulnerable, you need a villain who seems menacing just by the way he talks.  And what better villain than the supercilious, erudite, obstinate Oxonian-accented Britisher who seems overwhelmingly superior to our poor farm boy hero. So, imagine our delight when the yokely Yank defeats the English evil-doer and saves humanity from another hundred years of insufferable British hegemony. It’s absolutely gear!

Germans are cast differently. They are almost always mad scientists bent on ruthlessly destroying the world with new blasphemies, to wit, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, or Goldfinger or Der Weisse Engel in Marathon Man or Dr. Mengele in The Boys from Brazil.  It’s no accident that the name Mary Shelley selected, during that fateful trip to Switzerland, was a German one!  So what if Americans or Englishmen play the role? – what’s important is that his name is German and all w’s are pronounced as v’s.  “Ve heff vayz off making you talk!” 

During the war years, Hollywood stepped up to bat for the American war effort by portraying the German enemy as “incompetent”, “stupid” or “cruel” (not necessarily in that order).  German soldiers, who counted, were blonde members of that ubermensch class who strutted, or say, swaggered, with a look only bad actors usually sport – a look not dissimilar to Dolph Lundren’s Drago, the Russian superboxer, in one of the Stallone Rocky films.  Even the redoubtable English actor, Robert Shaw, had to put on the schmaltz when he played Colonel Hessler in the Battle of the Bulge.  Watching the English flick off the Germans or the French is one of the few pleasures left to me at my age.

Sharif is lucky he wasn’t sent to Auschwitz for those rather suspicious looks.

Amazingly, when the Hollywood or Shepperton folks want to portray a good German, they’ll go out of their way to cast a Syrian/Egyptian actor like Omar Sharif as the Gestapo investigator in Night of the Generals.  You haven’t lived until you’ve seen Sharif playing an obergruppenfuhrer for Herr Himmler.  And you will die laughing at Peter O’Toole’s take on a sociopathic German general whose fetishes resemble those of Ted Bundy’s.  O’Toole’s performance is so over the top it could be viewed as revenge for the bombing of Coventry.

The Germans are thought of as “regimented”, “humorless”, “disciplined”, “icy”, “dispassionate”, “sexually weird”, “depraved” and “banal”.  While none of these things are true about the Germans I have known in my life, the one thing of which I am certain is that they are not “HYPOCRITICAL”.  Germans are quite direct, often favoring the truth no matter how offensive it may be – as long as it gets an issue to fruition or completion.  But, in my own life, I have yet to hear Germans say one thing and do another.  It’s doubly amazing to me that Germans are so perfervidly opposed to police states, warfare, oppression, and the like – will exult in their love of democracy and freedom of speech – their incomprehensible legal system which pretends to cover all conceivable situations – their courts which are designed to dispense justice……..and yet, when the Syrian people come around to their first direct presidential elections, Germany’s government formally denies them this basic right.  So, to answer my own question about how democratic the German Republic is? I say:  Schade. Schade. Schade.

I wonder how this denial of voting rights to ex-pats is going to work. If a Syrian in Berlin is going to cast a vote in the Syrian embassy, will he/she be physically prevented? Will they invade the embassy, part of the sovereign territory of another country, and prevent the staff from administering electoral work? Or will they ban people sending a ballot by post to Damascus? It seems to me that any such actions are wide open to challenge in the German courts, especially if taken by a Syrian with German citizenship also.

Hi everyone, The people of Syria are not scared of foreign intervention anymore. the Europeans missed their opportunity back when Assad was uncoordinated and when terrorists were flooding Syria, but now Assad is on the offensive after the defensive, its too late. Anyway, with tensions with Russia getting tense, they do not want a proxy war.

The Western powerbase is rapidly approaching the cliff, with the foot to the floor in a thelma and louise style deathwish. Be it this, or the Russian sanctions this cadre of idiots are increasingly painted into a corner and have to play a game and play a role that is getting more and more uncomfortable. The halcyon days of the west being the noble force for good is forever in the rearview mirror and they have overplayed their hand outing themselves as satanic war criminals. They have no choice but to keep going but the lies that they peddle are… Read more »

Sorrowly Angela Merkel likes the role of being Americas Bitch… I really miss Gerhardt Schröder…He had the courage saying “No” when America invaded Iraq and also gave Germany an own identy as an independent state… (By the way: We still have around 80.000 occupying soldiers stationed in germany… almost 70 years after end of world war II – more than 56.000 of them from the USA)

Greetings from Germany

Know that many Germans are with the Syrian people and government on this. If you will take a look at the comment section in online news media, they are mostly pro-government or anti-terrorists. Unfortunately the current government is easily deceived by US-UK-FR alliance when it comes to international politics. An important message though: president Assad expressed his wishes for German-lead moderation talks a year ago, which was declined by then foreign minister Westerwelle (the most incompetent foreign minister in german history). Things have changed, Westerwelle is gone. It maybe time to reissue the request, with as much publicity as possible.… Read more »

A shame indeed, though no different from the non sense position against Russia in Ukraine, it does seem though that EU leaders do not have an opinion anymore but to follow the falling Empire of Greed. Shame on those leaders.

I live in what is called EU, I have no concept of Democracy, the closest I have been to experience democracy was in my younger years, before the year of 1985. It was in November 21, 1985 that Sweden was turned into a full fledged neoliberal dictatorship by means of a state coup that deregulated the entire financial market, giving the central bank to the Claws of the Rothschilds.

The following year, our last democratically elected Prime Minister, Olof Palme, was murdered by our own Security police by contract from Mossad and CIA.

According to the link below, German online media n-tv recently asked, “Haben sie verstandnis fur putin’s kurs?” The russian speaking commentator says that the results of the poll were pulled offline abruptly after the outcome indicated an overwhelming majority appeared to be sympathetic to Putin’s course of action w/ respect to Ukraine. After the 2:00 mark the commentator displays the results of the poll, obtained via hacked records. If this is any indication of popular sentiment in Germany, it helps to explain why the Europeans have drastically toned down their anti-Russian rhetoric in the past couple days. I guess when… Read more »

I have dealt with many Germans in my life, and they are very easy people to get along with, once you understand the way they think. They are no hypocrites, say what they think, hard workers, do not appreciate the lies that are often told in countries of Southern Europe, lovers of good food and beer, but unfortunately, most of them admire the US. Their collective guilt and wish to make up for their wrong doings in the second Word War, have led this country to become Israel’s bitch and an eager NATO slave, although their guilt towards Russia should… Read more »

Soon there will be game over for Europe as a democratic farce Zio-regime. With no limit to their greed zero-ground is well prepared. By the way the ominous kabbalistic paganic source of the ever-flourishing number 72 has its roots with the old Sumerian 5000 years ago when they introduced their official 12er system. And Abraham with his family scandals already fleeing first time in the long history of similar scenarios of his kind. The 12er system was most probably invented out of a universal and easy method to determine any type of rectangular things, e.g. fields, buildings, constructions and was… Read more »

“At no point since the end of WWII Germany has had full sovereignity.” Schäuble, geman minister of Finances. He used that in a different context (making PR for the ill-born bastard the EU is), but he is factually right. Thus Germany is still in effect ruled by the US, GB and France with their ambassadors being the successors of the high comissioners who had the last say until 1990. Russia is not missing in that list btw. the traitors Gorbachev and Yeltsin fucked that up. But now you know why the german government and press act as weird as they… Read more »

Why is anyone surprised that Germany, France and others are rejecting the presidential election? Is there anything more silly than to expect the states which have been waging war against the Syrian people to approve of an election which doesn’t suit their interests. Some people just don’t use their brains and are guided by emotion and irrationality instead. OT: The sectarian occupation regime of Maliki is assaulting Fallujah while the so called ‘Daash’ attacks Deir Zour, hardly a coincidence, while it also proves the Iranian and Iraqi government involvement in ‘Daash’. By attacking Deir Zour they hope to choke off… Read more »

United Nations examines recent media reports that the helicopters with their identification marks have been involved in the Ukrainian military operation near Kramatorsk. If it will be confirmed, it would mean that the Kiev authorities violated agreements concluded with international organization, the press service of the Department for Peacekeeping Operations of the United Nations stated.

Ziad, ‘But, I don’t know if ethnic cleansing is what Maliki is about. I’m not even sure what his direction is when it comes to the U.S.’ I would say the unprecedented and overt military support from both the US and Iran to the criminal Maliki government is a sure sign of whose man he is. Without this support, he crumbles and a nationalist, Arabist government will return to power in Baghdad. But this man (actually not the man but the subservient political process he represents) is too important for Western interests, particularly energy interests, and too important for Iran’s… Read more »
