Paul WhitefieldPaul Whitefield (Foto von seinem Twitter-Account) versuchte am Montag in der LA TIMES witzig zu sein, als er in sei­ner Ko­lum­ne über das mas­sen­haf­te Ab­hö­ren fran­zö­si­scher Te­le­fo­ne schwadro­nierte und hat dabei nur eines be­wiesen: Er ist ein ar­ro­gan­tes Arsch­loch und diese ver­fickte Ar­roganz wird den Amis in nicht wei­ter Zu­kunft das Redneck bre­chen:

    Uh oh, the French are fried because the NSA spied on them. And you know what that means: It means, well, uh, it means … OK, it means nothing, really …

    The French government was shocked! shocked! to hear that this kind of thing going on, and it took strong action: “French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said that he had summoned U.S. Ambassador Charles H. Rivkin for an explanation …

    Oooh, an explanation. Wonder if Rivkin got to have a nice cup of café au lait and some of those delicious pastries while he told his French counterpart that he had no idea what he was talking about?

    But really, why should France feel abused? After all, it’s recently come out that the NSA had tapped into an email server used by ex-Mexican President Felipe Calderon and his Cabinet, and that the spy agency had also loosed its electronic tentacles on Germany and Brazil …

    In other words, the more shocking news would’ve been that we weren’t spying on the French. In this brave new world of electronic surveillance, you have to be a real nobody to be ignored.

    In any country, in any language, the new rule is this: You have no privacy. If the government wants to — and our government certainly seems to want to — it can and will vacuum up every detail of your electronic life …

    So welcome to the party, Parisians. Liberté, égalité, fraternité indeed!

    Hope you have nothing to hide.

Mal schaun, ob dem Schmierfink zum Merkelphone was Ähnliches einfällt 👿
