  1. Huh. I’ve used the phrase a bunch of times but it really doesn’t sound better in the original German.
    I did think it was against the law in Germany to use Nazi rhetoric.

  2. Curious how these totalitarians all seem to use the term “expression” interchangeably with “speech”. As if they are automatically the same. So that blocking traffic, which could be considered a form of expression, is somehow considered to be speech. Which it isn’t.

    Any more than punching a Trump supporter wearing a red MAGA hat is “speech”. But it does seem to be protected a lot more than actual speech like saying “trannies are mentally defective and in need of treatment”.

    Funny how that works.

    (BTW, speaking of red MAGA hats – it must be a bitch being a Cincinnati Reds fan these days …)

  3. “We will make society more free by curtailing individual freedoms.”

    “We must burn this village in order to save it.”

    “These invaders who actively seek to destroy our culture enrich our culture with their diversity.”

    Whatinhell does *someone[s]* have on this poor, confused, EdithBunker-looking woman to make her say such sickening drivel?

  7. ^Claire, Merkel is East German from when Russia ran the place. She merely speaking from her roots in the Stasi.

  8. So, if an Antifa goon trying to punch me because he/she/it thinks fe-e-e-els that I’m a “Nazi, that’s “free speech”. But if I attempt to defend myself, that’s assault instead of “responding to his/her/its remarks?
