Ok So This Really Happened Then


You know how lately the news has just been constantly filled with shit so absurd that you kind of gloss over half or more of the most ridiculous headlines because your brain is overloaded? Well that is definitely what happened with this:

Germans Appalled by Threat From Trump’s Ambassador to Help Far-Right Nationalists Take Power Across Europe

Like I'm pretty sure somewhere in the back of my brain I was aware that this had happened but just couldn't handle it.

The German government demanded a formal explanation from the United States on Monday of what, exactly, the new U.S. ambassador in Berlin, Richard Grenell, meant when he promised to use his office to help far-right nationalists inspired by Donald Trump take power across Europe. 
In an interview with Breitbart News, published on Sunday, Grenell said he was “excited” by the rise of far-right parties on the continent and wanted “to empower other conservatives throughout Europe, other leaders.”

And yet again:

I know I've also seen headlines about Germany considering pulling their own ambassador from the U.S. or something like that, and I have to say, Germany - do it. Don't try to save us. Let the empire collapse. At least definitely close our embassy in your country. If this guy is outright saying he's going to do this, then he's going to do it. Clarifications be damned.

Germany is far from perfect and is still a very capitalist nation with a lot of white supremacy going on, but at least they still somewhat remember the past. You know exactly where the U.S. is going. Don't tolerate it.
