Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh yes, I did.


"When the American Neocons or the Bush Administration described in detail what they intended to do, people dismissed it as extreme rhetoric, only to be shocked, shocked when they went on to do exactly what they said they would do. You are now making the same mistake with the German establishment (Merkel, Schäuble, Issing, Wulff, Weber, Stark, and the list goes on and on...)

 And you tell me drawing parallels with the 1930s is out of place."

And then you, instead of challenging this minimizing of fascism and conspirational thinking, just did give in:

" But whatever. The circumstances are such that it doesn't matter what we shout as long as we're shouting."

No, I don't think "just shouting" is a good thing.
