Double Standards

Remember the story about Dan Hannan being expelled from the EPP for pointing out similarities to the action taken by Hans Gert Pottering, president of the European Parliament where somewhat similar to Hitler's Enabling Act of 1933?

There was uproar and calls from all over the place about how he should apologise unreservedly for his comments.

Well, now take a look at this video:


I seem to notice a comparison made by a europhile with regards to Jens Peter Bonde, co president of the Ind Dem group along with Nigel Farage MEP of a similar style. How come that is okay? Double standards, anyone?

Herr Schulz actually said it. He's called out the name that's never uttered. But it was okey for him to make comparisons with dissenting MEPs. And it was okay for Lib chief Graham WhatsUp to compare them to soviet communists and "national socialists" (oh, why not do a schulz and say it, damn it!)... and it was of course also okay for Daniel Cohn-Bendit (the heroic revolutionary of the 1960s) to call them "idiots", "mentally weak" and "mad".

Now what type of people would do that, I wonder... no, not the political 'F' word...
