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

"My comparison was between the response of the majority of the German people in the mid '30s to the actions of the Nazi government to the response of the majority of the German people today to the actions of the current CDU government. The CDU is not fascist, but the actions of its political and financial leadership towards the Greek people are inflicting great harm to which that portion of German society that supports the CDU seems callously indifferent."

But that is  a comparison. And a cheapening of fascism.

It's a comparison of an attitude of indifference and lack of compassion in the mid `30s and an attitude of indifference and lack of compassion in 2012, yes.

Nu krieg dich mal'n büschen ein.
