New Poll finds 51 Percent of Germans are Retarded

And the other 49 percent are just vaguely "special." From "The Country Formerly Known as Nazi Germany" we get this disturbing poll:

51 percent of respondents said that there is not much of a difference between what Israel is doing to the Palestinians today and what the Nazis did to the Jews during the Holocaust, compared to 49% who disagreed with such a comparison, according to the poll carried out by Germany's University of Bielefeld.
The survey also found that 68 percent of Germans believe that Israel is waging a "war of extermination" against the Palestinians, while some 32% disagreed with such a statement.

And this poll was only of the non-immigrant population, so it excluded the more radical views of the large, Muslim minority. Also, as this article notes, "Due in part to its blighted history, Germany is generally considered to be one of the more supportive countries of Israel in Europe."

When the views of Europeans are so fundamentally flawed as to see the only democracy in the Middle East (wait... scratch that!) as Nazi Germany and to interpret the trickle of casualties out of Palestine as a "war for extermination," or genocide (not a word to be used lightly) it's hard to see as how a fruitful transatlantic dialogue can take place.

This particular poll is from Germany, where the Germany National Party (which "wants to do away with democracy and envisions a larger Germany that would include parts of Poland, Russia and the Czech Republic, incorporated in what was once the "German Reich"") gained a surprising number of votes in the last election.

It's probably just not generally all around wise to call Israel a Nazi state when members of your own government would proudly wear the swastika. Heck, maybe some of the Germans were complimenting Israel when they attached the Nazi label to it.

If a party can gain a seat in government when one of its planks is to conquer Poland, I'd think its a safe bet to say that there's some latent Nazi tendencies around some areas of Germany.

I mean, really, how does "Conquer Poland" get added to the platform anyways?

Leader: So what should we promise the people this year?

More taxes, sir?

No, we stretched that last year with our 50% tax on taxes.

Free healthcare, sir?

Dude, we already provide that. In fact, we have a program now were we inject people with random viruses and then send them to the doctor for unrelated elective surgeries. We call it Injeranvirunrelelsur. The name needs work. Any other ideas?

Skinhead: Poland, sir?

Poland?!? Are you on crack? Remind me again why I hired you?

Skinhead: I have embarrasing pictures of you wearing a miniskirt with matching Louis Vitton handbag. And the rest of the boys tend to get all mad and stabby when they see pictures like that, sir.

Leader: Poland it is. What's with "kielbasa" anyways? I mean, its just sausage right? And then these Poles give it this funky name, "Kielbasa." Really, just say it a few times.
