    In pictures: German carnival mocks Trump and Brexit









    In pictures: German carnival mocks Trump and Brexit - BBC News

    GERMANS RUTHLESSLY RIDICULE TRUMP AND BREXIT AT ANNUAL CARNIVAL

    The annual Dusseldorf carnival is not usually a place for political satire. But this year they couldn’t help themselves.

    Pictures from German media from this weekend show Germans eager to ridicule not just Theresa May’s plans for Brexit, but especially Donald Trump.

    And they didn’t hold back either.

    F*ck you Germany, at least we didn't commit cultural suicide by letting in tens of thousands of primarily male "refugees." Merkel could at least have the decency to lock herself in a bunker with a pistol and a vile of cyanide.

    I don't think Germany realises just how despised it is at the moment by Southern European states who blame Germany (whether rightly or wrongly) for their woes, while the EU has worked out a treat for Germany with a devalued currency and massive trade surplus it has brought suffering for many others. Probably not wise for Germany to be mocking others in the present climate.

    We don't care what the Germans think and that is why we want to leave the EU. They can all get stuffed.

    There's nothing funny about anything that implies a threat to Britain for pulling out of the EU.

    Consider the source. He brings zero to the table other than 12 year old girl level comments and mockery.

    I just think its nutz that the germans seem to wholeheartedly forget their history, and just can not stand it when they see themselves losing whatever power they thought they had with the EU.

    All this Anit-Trump shit, has had the opposite effect on me.

    I started off hating on Trump, now I am leaning towards supporting him (especially his immigration policy).

    Fuck the establishment who pander to vested interests, multi-nationals, a self protection policy that Trump promotes i.e. America first, has its merits IMHO.

    Bollocks, the only country whining is Greece and those fuckers brought all their shit on themselves, tax dodging whining pikeys that they are - which probably explains why you relate to them so well.

    Anyway, from all the mood music coming out of the Brexshit Tory arseholes, you spend so much time licking, it's fucking obvious that the English are up for sucking anyone's cock in order to do a trade deal.

    You dozy hypocritical twat.

    Err, protectionism and isolationism linked to jingoistic rhetoric generally means more barriers to trade, less commerce, falling profits, less consumption, lower GDP, more unemployment, lower investment and ultimately recession.

    You gormless antipodean twat.

    Givin' Jeff a run for his money there.

    Sounds to me like someones getting the shit end of Brexit.

    So basically a disaster situation for the UK. Absolute worst case scenario. This is what you think.

    Disagree. If there were people like yourself running the place, it would be like you paint it up to be.

    The UK has all the leverage and if they aren't complete dolts about it, trade, commerce, profits, GDP and employment will be just fine, in the longer term.

    In the short term there will be some hiccups and devaluation but overall will rebound strongly.

    Trump was elected on the promise to strengthen America's security, he immediately carried out his election promise. He was democratically elected and should be respected as such.

    Nothing wrong with putting self-interest first. We do that naturally as selfish humans anyhow.

    Do you think the buffoons, in charge of tai-lan are deeply pondering the plight of economic migrants - or how to best ease their path to the kingdom la la land??

    Bor... nope... mai chai...

    Those poor suckers don't even flash into their vapid minds. Are they allowing farang to purchase a house/land? will they ever? will they fuck...

    Trump has the balls to make the hard (and unpopular) decisions, after years of indifference towards the threat of terrorism from within. Will the fucktards that cry foul with his immigration policy - dare to apologize to the victims of terrorist acts, or their grieving families?

    I think not.. they will be too busy clutching at their mama's legs - under her skirt.

    Err, which words did you find challenging?

    Anyway, your vapid and somewhat vacuous optimism in assuming a Brexshit dividend will be manifested by greater global trade is somewhat undermined by the inconvenient fact only 8% of annual GDP is derived from the manufactured goods sector. Of much greater significance will be the loss of a proportion of Britain's hitherto passported financial services that will outweigh any imaginary gains elsewhere.

    Britain is about to fuck itself as so wonderfully illustrated by May's effigy.

    Protectionism and isolationism leading to more barriers to trade, by Jove I think the senile fart is slowly starting to understand how the EU works as in a cosy club for 500 million people but the other 7 billion taxed to fuk on their goods and services. Now you've grasped this in lesson 2 we will move on to why the EU has lower growth than the rest of the world.

    For me, it was not just the wrong word, but the vague appropriateness of the word. Cyanide, nasty stuff - vile. Yeah.

    An example I have always enjoyed was a German colleague who always said the English colloquial phrase "a shit load of trouble" as "a ship load of trouble". Like yeah - a ship load - that's a lot of trouble.......

    Your gormless ignorance is only exceeded by your profound inability to comprehend it. Or, in words probably more readily understood by that desiccated walnut sized brain of yours, you are too fucking dumb to realise just how fucking dumb you are.

    In what sense does the EU not have a trade agreement with, for example, New Zealand which sees the latter exporting $8 fucking billions worth of goods to the EU and in return sees the EU becoming the fucking world's second largest investor in the NZ economy?

    I shan't bother with the Aussie figure because I feel that even a fucking spasticated moron such as you Bumbumboy will understand that the notion the EU is a protectionist and isolationist economic bloc is a fucking dribbling retarded idiocy.

    Honestly, a fucking senile hamster has more intelligence than you, you dumb fuck.

    You really are stupid beyond words but what can one expect from someone who is incapable of getting his wingman a settlement visa to the UK and likes to blame our wonderful PM for his own inadequacies and lack of foresight and planning. Of course there are trade agreements you single celled moron but they come with massive import tariffs on numerous goods and services, with those gone trade would greatly increase, not a difficult concept to grasp.
