Going Down in the Alps

Bild 146-1968-101-20AAs a child it amused me that “Alps” backwards is “spla.” In fact I still find that vaguely humorous, although this week’s deveopment mitigates against it.

I don’t find these people humorous at all. It took this bunch less than a day to concoct the ingredients of ethnic hatred and raw prejudice to feed the legions of worldwide wingnuts who can’t just get enough Muslim-bashing to salve their savage souls. This sort of thing has a long history, not least among the Germans themselves, and extending into rather recent history, too. Just substitute Jews for Muslims and you have a classic nationalistic approach that promotional maven Joe Goebbels would approve.
