Liberals Ask: Is It Over Yet ?

Anyone see More4’s newspaper ads for the TV premiere of ‘Downfall’ ? A picture of Hitler with the tagline ‘There’s a happy ending. He dies.’ I liked it, but I can’t help thinking that that’s exactly the kind of comment which usually has the Liberals turning the hysteriator up to 11. Of course, Hitler's the only socialist you're allowed to criticise, but still can you seriously imagine the whining if someone on the Right celebrated the death of an Al-Quaida scumbag ? Nope – the L3 would surrender itself to girly hysterics.

Obviously, one factor is that the Left has – somehow – managed to introduce into popular culture the insane idea that the head of the National Socialist German Worker’s Party was a right-winger, but there’s more going on here. Consider how enraged Liberals are at the fact that America had slavery into the second half of the 19th century. Now, consider how enraged Liberals are that the Islamic world has slavery right now – which is to say ‘not at all’.

Maybe that should be the Left’s new slogan ‘Ready to take a stand just as soon as it becomes irrelevant’
