Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words


The gent above is Sigmar Gabriel, vice-Chancellor of Germany and — wait for it — head of the Socialist party. The scowl is because somebody mentioned Greece.

  1. how quickly europe has gone off the deep end. the Tories are about to scrap the Human Rights Act, and the EU is gonna bomb refugee boats & initiate a new rape of Africa in the name of “stopping human trafficking.” NATO gave Libya freedom & democracy…those bastards now also want Europe’s consumer goods & health care (get your own damn health care & food, you ingrates).

    i suspect Europe’s post WW2 meliorism was all about staving off the arrival of a socialist utopia, a la the New Deal in the US. hopefully this time, unlike all other times, the proletariat will KICK SOME ASS and accept no bribes.

  2. Picking a nit, the Social Democrats do not even self-define as socialists, if they ever did. I mean, they were the ones that tossed Rosa in the drink, after all. Die Linke at least identify as socialists, which is why they remain for the most part pariahs.

    Do a search for “Merkel frowns” for an amusing collage of what looks like Sigmar in a wig.
