Why that hate us? Because they’re incredibly stupid
: A poll in Germany reports:
Almost one in three Germans below the age of 30 believes the U.S. government may have sponsored the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, according to a poll published on Wednesday
And about 20 percent of Germans in all age groups hold this view, a survey of 1,000 people conducted for the weekly Die Zeit said.
Heiko Hebig (who finds this via the Agonist via Die Zeit) wonders what I’ll say about this. What can a sane person say: They’re nuts. Is the fault of German media that they’re so ill-informed? Is it the fault of German politicians that anti-American bigotry has reached such depths of idiocy? Is it the fault of German education that a third of the next generation is just so stupid?
