German trainer in racial video still on duty – USATODAY.com BERLIN (AP) — A Germany army instructor who ordered a soldier to envision himself facing hostile blacks in New York while firing his machine gun is still on duty, the army said Sunday. A video of the army instructor telling the soldier to shoot and yell obscenities while thinking of African-Americans in the Bronx aired on German national television Saturday and prompted calls for an apology by the New York City borough’s president. When asked Sunday if the army would apologize, spokesman Florian Naggies said, "The German Army takes the incident very serious and is interested in quickly resolving it." Naggies said that the case is under investigation, and the instructor "is still working for the army."
In other words, no, they won’t apologize. Well, there are several ways we can handle and respond to this. First is to say that we understand German ignorance because all they know of the Bronx is what they’ve learned from movies like The Warriors and Fort Apache. So we should forgive their ignorance.
Next, we can say, "Those Damn Hessians are at it again", and just accept who and what they are.
Lastly, we can simply remind them that we can associate anyone with Al-Queda, and put them on our Axis of Evil list.
So while we understand that German culture probably hasn’t changed much, it’s pretty much like the rest of Europe, make no mistake, we can out-hate you, and justify any action we take. And to that German Army instructor…oh, nevermind….
