EUnuchistan descends further and further into dhimmitude and insanity.
Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany, is now finding herself in hot water, well probably not all that hot since the plaintiff is certifiably insane but still, because she had the nerve to suggest that she was glad that a mass-murdering monster was dead:
Schadenfreude, the enjoyment of others’ suffering, may be a famously German concept, but it is apparently not a feeling that many Germans aspire to. The political and public fallout following Chancellor Angela Merkel’s statement on Monday that she was “glad” Osama bin Laden had been killed was among the most hotly debated topics in the German media this week.
Politicians, including those within her own center-right coalition, said that no death was cause for celebration, and reproved the remark as un-Christian and vengeful.
As far as we can recall, most Germans were quite happy when they learned in 1945 that Adolf Hitler was dead and that the end to his reign of insanity finally appeared to be at an end, but apparently they were all “un-Christian and vengeful” too, according to the current breed of nutless Germans. How far a once proud nation has fallen.
But Hamburg judge Heinz Uthmann went even further. He alleges that the chancellor’s statement was nothing short of illegal, and filed a criminal complaint against Merkel midweek, the daily Hamburger Morgenpost reported Friday.
“I am a law-abiding citizen and as a judge, sworn to justice and law,” the 54-year-old told the paper, adding that Merkel’s words were “tacky and undignified.”
In his two-page document, Uthmann, a judge for 21 years, cites section 140 of the German Criminal Code, which forbids the “rewarding and approving” of crimes. In this case, Merkel endorsed a “homicide,” Uthmann claimed. The violation is punishable by up to three years’ imprisonment or a fine.
Good luck with getting the death of a terrorist who, by definition, is outside of any and all protections of the Geneva Conventions and the Laws of Warfare classified as a “homicide”, but what’s more disturbing is this:
While the judge’s reaction may seem extreme, his sentiments are apparently shared by 64 percent of the German population. That was the proportion of Germans who said bin Laden’s death was “no reason to rejoice” in a poll published by broadcaster ARD on Friday.
There’s no reason to rejoice when the murderer of 3,000 innocents is finally popped in the head himself? Really, now? Then what, pray tell, exactly is a reason to rejoice in today’s obviously neutered Germany?
What the everloving fuck happened to Germany?
Should we, perhaps, instead sit down in a prayer circle and bemoan the fact that poor Osama’s actions had led to his untimely demise? That poor, misunderstood child whose upbringing obviously led him to make a series of unfortunate choices through no fault of his own?
It seems to me that we may have gone a bit overboard in our “de-Nazification” of Germany after WWII and, instead of having produced a nation of responsible individuals with a strong sense of right and wrong, ended up creating a bad parody of the French.
