Quagmire in Germany

Martin Hohmann, the German parliamentarian who blames the Jews for creating Stalin, has been banished from the Christian Democrat faction in the Bundestag. Hohmann's supporters are organizing to get him reinstated.

Meanwhile, a general in charge of an elite special forces unit has been sacked for supporting Hohmann's anti-Jewish remarks.

Still no end in sight to the quagmire of de-nazification.

Someone once observed that the real reason that denazification didn't work in Germany was because:

1. 6 million dead Jews don't vote.
2. 10 million ex-Nazis do vote, and vote often
