The universal application of Godwin’s Law

Well, the Germans have been watching the scene warily for a while now, and their worst fears have come true:

Everybody hates them now.

But in a strange inversion of anti-Nazi politics, the more Nazi-like a foreign political party is, the more they demonize the Germans. Take the Greek far-right parties, which are currently polling at over 20%. One, called Golden Dawn, has slogans which include “Foreigners Out!” and “The Garbage Should Leave the Country!” And make no mistake about it, the garbage they want to toss out includes all of their Germanic overlords.

Apparently, nobody in Greece believes anymore that work (or taxation) will make them free.
