The stupidity of Racists

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on March 26, 2008

Patrick Owomoyela

BERLIN, Germany (AP) — The head of Germany’s top far-right party was charged with incitement and defamation Tuesday for allegedly publishing a pamphlet before the 2006 soccer World Cup that prosecutors said called into question whether nonwhite players should be on the national team.[…]

The flyers showed the traditional white German jersey with the No. 25, which was worn at the time by black defender Patrick Owomoyela. They read: “White, not just a jersey color! For a real NATIONAL team!”

Owomoyela, who has a German mother and a Nigerian father, plays for Werder Bremen but is no longer a member of the German national squad.

The NPD called the charges “absurd” and “political” in a statement released on its Web site.

“The German justice authorities are ever more zealous when it comes to pursuing and persecuting the national opposition,” the statement read.

Beier insisted in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that the use of No. 25 was “pure chance” and insisted the quality of the printing was unclear, meaning it could be interpreted as a 26 or even a 23.

“Everyone can see their own favorite number in it,” Beier said.

How stupid can you be? With a defense line like THAT, you deserve to be indicted and prosecuted, and hopefully convicted and sent to jail.

Go Germany!
