So explain how this float in a German parade doesn’t violate the German law against making fun of a foreign head of state…I mean, it looks like he’s trying to artificially inseminate a camel…
Yesterday it was Bill Nye the Science Guy wanting to put people in jail for not believing in Global Warming.
Today, look at Germany, where head honcho Angela Merkel continues her quest to appease the Death to the Infidels wing of Islam by authorizing the prosecution of a German TV comedian who made fun of Turkish President Biff (or whatever his name is: who cares?) Erdogan ( http://dailycaller.com/2016/04/15/germans-to-prosecute-comedian-for-doing-comedy-in-germany/ ).
Would you believe it? Way back in 1871, under good ol’ Kaiser Wilhelm, Germany enacted a law making it a criminal offense to disparage or make fun of a foreign head of state. They gave up the spiked helmets, but kept that.
You may have noticed that nobody in Germany ever got thrown in the clink for making fun of George W. Bush. They have a lot of laughs at Obama’s expense, too–big time.
Maybe the difference is that Erdogan complained about it and the American presidents didn’t. Probably Obama never knew about that German law, or else he would’ve said something about the way they depict him in parades.
Why would a Western leader bend over backwards to coddle a Third World dictator?
Because all the leaders of the West are Third World dictator wannabes.
So, everybody–enjoy your free speech while you’ve got it. They don’t mean for you to have it much longer.
