I know, I know, I write entirely too much about those damn Nazis, err… I mean Germans, but this one is too good. At a European Union meeting this week, members were debating whether they should change the current voting structure, and begin tying a countries population to the amount of votes they have within the EU. This would be a change to the existing system consisting of one equal vote per country, regardless of size. Obviously, heavily populated countries—such as Germany—are all for it, whereas less populated countries—such as Poland—are not.
Well, the prime minister of Poland got sick of listening to Germany bitch about why they should have more power within the EU (although we have no valid historical reason to worry about Germany having too much power), so he stood up and caused a major kerfuffle by stating the following (aka, the obvious).
It was the Germans who inflicted unimaginable injury, terrible harm, on Poles – incomprehensible crimes – and Poles like Germans, while Germans do not like Poles.”
“We are only demanding one thing, that we get back what was taken from us. If Poland had not had to live through the years of 1939-45, Poland would be today looking at the demographics of a country of 66million.”
The prime minister of Poland basically told Germany that they’d be glad to change to a voting system based on population if the Germans promised to bring back to life the millions of Poles they butchered during World War II. After extrapolating those numbers over the past 60 years, Poland is technically missing around 30 million voters (aka, citizens).
Of course, the poor picked on Naz… Germans were upset with the mean statement. Apparently in Europe you are not allowed to remind the Germans about that whole trying to take over the world and kill all the Jews thing.
The 61 million Allied forces and citizens killed by the Germans in WWII could not be reached for comment.
