    Hello

    Hello out there - I am a new member and came upon the site while googling "slandering Germans". I am very tired of the media referencing Germans and Nazis and mocking the German people and trying to fake a German accent with impunity. Remember when Sen. D'Amato mocked Judge Ito by putting on a Japanese accent? The outrage was overwhelming, yet every evening Glenn Beck or some other idiot is degrading and mocking all Germans and no one objects! The insulting remarks made about Germans would never be tolerated if they were directed at other ethnicities. This constant barrage of anti-Germanic comments really bothers me - it's the one ethnicity everyone feels free to attack. I recently saw the ONLY bumper sticker I have ever seen that read "Proud to be a German-American" and I plan to get some for our cars!

    Hello from England, remember they hate us because they fear us, the important thing is to use their negativity against us as a source of strength. If you love the Germanic people, you will be hated, but in a world this shitty, I would not want it any other way.

    Welcome.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    Welcome, I hope you enjoy yourself, if you are proud of your Germanic roots than you should feel right at home.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Hi Welcome to the forum!

    Well the unfortunate truth is that Nazi has more or less come to symbolize a specific type of government overreaching control.

    As for Glenn Beck, he is most likely mocking overreaching American Liberals, with a typical movie stereo type of WW2 German people.

    Which is ironic because American Liberalism is far more tied to the Communist Party and what have you, than they ever were to Nazis.

    On the flip side, for years the American Left has attempted to tie anyone who was remotely right wing to the Nazi Party, and was a favorite tactic of liberal hippies.

    In reality I don't think it has as much to do with actual Germans as it does with the stereo type of them.

    LOL!

    Glenn Beck is a Comedian/Political Commentator in the US that does a radio talk show satirizing mostly liberals.
