Controversial Kinabatangan MP Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin has found himself in the firing line again, this time for linking the German football team to Adolf Hitler.
After Germany humiliated Brazil 7-1in the semi-finals of the World Cup on Wednesday morning, Bung tweeted WELL DONE..BRAVO...LONG LIVE HITLER.
His tweet went viral and netizens condemned Bung for being insensitive and brainless among other things.
In his subsequent tweets, Bung, however, seemed unrepentant and defended himself from the derision on Twitter.
He told Twitter user @Aisehman that he didnt know what was going on while he told @syazwanrahimy that he was making a joke.
Hitler, the leader of the Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945, was responsible for the holocaust that resulted in the death of millions of Jews.
Bung was not available for comment.
Support for Hitler and the 3rd Reich exists in Germany today, as evidenced by the conversation I had with a taxi driver when I was last there. Most Germans I know, however, refuse to discuss the issue and seemed very uncomfortable when I brought up the conversation I had with the driver.
With a name “Bung” what could go wrong???
I need TP for my bung hole.
One German I know told me they are just tired of talking about it and asked me how interested was I in talking about the history of slavery in America. I understood that comparison as I am personally sick of liberals and blacks referring to slavery every chance they get. I do not believe, however, that Americans deny that slavery was wrong while the taxi driver I encountered told me outright that I should not believe everything I have read in my American history books. Basically he was in denial. He complained about the allied bombing destroying his city of Köln. I shut him up by asking him what he thought of Hitler’s Germany indiscriminately firing the V2 rockets into London. He just grunted.
“Bung Mokhtar”? Is that a Klingon, or a Pokémon?
Not me. When the subject comes up I simply ask them if they know the history of the USS Constellation.
Uh huh. It's hilarious on so many levels.
