We are supposed to emulate these people???    Whatever happened to "Sticks and stones can break my bones!  But names can never hurt me."?  In Germany, the German Football Association is investigating "racial abuse" after a complaint by England's Football Association complained that two British players claimed they were called "monkeys" by German players.  Yeah, that's racism to the Europeans. 

France is determined that massive deaths in Darfur isn't called "genocide" but passed a law in 2001 officially calling the Armenian massacres a genocide.   If Socialists get their way, it will be a crime to deny it.  Punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of up to EUR 45,000.   French law already outlaws revisionisn concerning the Holocaust as well.      Good thing for American Lefties that denying reality isn't a crime at the University of Wisconsin.

In the meantime, even Germans are wondering about the Airbus failure.  Deutsche Welle worries that "this most European of all companies have raised doubts about the construct's efficiency."  In the meantime, Merkel wants to reinstitute talks about an EU "constitution."   No one seems to connect the oh so obvious dots.
