Is the EU just another name for the Fourth Reich?


Because of proposed German domestic legislation?

I guess you didn't find it funny then.

Ironically I read the article , what there is by using a translator , I find it ridiculous to threaten citizens with prison for showing disrespect to a flag or a song regardless of who's it is .... prison planet.

My observation was that the EU is being treated like a nation id the EU flag is treated like a national flag. No rabid frothing, but concern about that acceptance.

If the EU is a nation, then the constituent nations will be relegated as mere states “of a nation”. Not sovereign in their own right, but fully subservient the larger part.

As I said. A worrying precedent.

Well since everybody can translate

Paragraf 104 des Strafgesetzbuches sieht zwar eine Geldstrafe oder eine Freiheitsstrafe von bis zu zwei Jahren für den vor, der eine "auf Grund von Rechtsvorschriften oder nach anerkanntem Brauch öffentlich gezeigte Flagge eines ausländischen Staates" zerstört oder beschädigt. Allerdings bedeutet dies: Die Aktion ist nur dann strafbar, wenn die konkrete Flagge zum Beispiel an einem Botschaftsgebäude angebracht war.

Yeah Germany...pretty strict with it's laws and a population that takes the law serieus....but also a people who, unlike any other, are able to defy laws if they contradict justice or common sense.

Case in point: can hardly smoke a sigaret outdoors anymore but in Hamburg, after 20:00, ashtrays go back on the bar and you can actually enjoy a beer and a smoke old style.

Love the Germans.

Peace
