Nazi Allusions Are the International Language of Politics


A spokesman for Republican Governor Nathan Deal called the Spanish-language paper El Nuevo Georgia “pathetic” for depicting his boss wearing a Nazi uniform, a swastika armband and a Hitler-like mustache. Editor Rafael Navarro defended his decision thusly: “Americans don’t read our paper because they can’t read Spanish. They don’t read our news, our editorials and the opinion of the community. But if they see a picture, they’ll get it.” True, now even a casual observer knows that Deal is guilty of mass genocide. Oh wait, the article is about an ethics investigation and Deal’s past financial troubles? Might be some translation issues there. [CNN]
