Zimmermann Telegram inspires Teutophobic backlash

If today’s New York Times editors had been in charge in 1917 (strumming harp music)…

A likely illegal publication of a private German telegram to culturally diverse Hispanic and Oriental leaders causes rage, Teutophobia among white alt-right U.S. nationalists

The questionably legal publication of a private German telegram has some alt-right conspiracy buffs attributing the worst possible motives to the German government.

The telegram, which legal experts caution may be illegal for citizens to read, was little more than the German government reaching out to culturally diverse nations about a somewhat complex real estate deal involving the southwestern United States.

The enlightened and progressive German foreign secretary, Arthur Zimmermann, was leading by example as his historically white nation sought to make amends by building bridges to Hispanic and Oriental cultures. But rather than applaud such noble and far-sighted efforts, large, angry crowds of disaffected, white Americans are once again seized with the latest outbreak of Teutophobia.

These angry and undereducated xenophobes point to a series of unrelated, lone wolf attacks against Americans in which, they say, they can “connect the dots”. But once the facts are examined, the dot connecting turns up little more than some imaginative paranoia perhaps inspired by spy novels.

For example, the sinking of the Lusitania occurred off the coast of Ireland in 1915. While some Americans were regrettably killed, the possibility of an accidental discharge by a German U-boat remains a likely explanation. If the nations of the world had simply banned the use of submarines, the whole tragedy might have been averted.

Then there was the tragic explosion at Black Tom in New Jersey in 1916 involving some undocumented German citizens who were merely making a statement for peace. Noting the distance between Ireland and New Jersey, it …

Then there was the tragic explosion at Black Tom in New Jersey in 1916 involving some undocumented German citizens who were merely making a statement for peace. Noting the distance between Ireland and New Jersey, it boggles the mind how one can “connect dots” so separated by the vast Atlantic Ocean. …

NYT’s Nir, Focus of Protest for Nail Salon Hit Piece, Proudly Covers Odd Pro-NYT Protest

Posted on 28 February 2017

On Monday the New York Times’ Sarah Maslin Nir covered a rare bird, a pro-media rally in (where else?) Manhattan, which just happened to bestow particular affection upon her own newspaper: “Protesters Gather to Defend the News Media.” The text box: “Resisting Trump’s vilification of the press as the ‘enemy.’” Coincidentally, Mir’s shoddy reporting in 2015 on New York City nail salons was the subject of a raucous protest outside Times headquarters by the workers themselves. That particular protest somehow didn’t make the Times.

Victory within grasp in Europe

Victory within grasp in Europe

Comrades,

I once promised to keep my trans-oceanic friends updated on our European endeavors. If you are bored by the endless stream of victories from the old world, please refrain from reading any further (with my blessing).

If not, I have a pearl of orthodoxy to share with you today:

Our exalted leader, Frau Merkel, has declared that no population has the right do define who belongs to that population. She also said that “the German people is everybody who lives in this land”.

Two consequences:

– The german constitution must be dragged to the memory holes, since it does have a definition for “citizens” of Germany that is a bit more “narrow” than just “living in Germany”.

-Military manuals all over the world are being updated: the game of war is now won by the belligerent who can hop over a border fence in the greatest number on election day, thereby becoming legal citizens and voting for their own general (thus winning the war).

Thank you for your attention!

Now back to the beet fields.
