Gli europei non hanno mai brillato per arti diplomatiche, e tra di loro i tedeschi sembrerebbero essere quelli meno dotati dell’arte del saper vivere.

Poi, non sapendo bene con chi prendersela, invece che sparare sul solito Vaticano questa volta se la son presa con i cinesi.

Gente notoriamente mite e remissiva: mica che se la siano legata al dito.

«Beijing has slammed EU Digital Economy Commisions Günter Oettinger for his derogatory remarks about Chinese diplomats»

*

«Oettinger can also be heard saying of the Chinese diplomats: “Nine men, one party. No democracy. No women’s quota, no women»

* * * * * * *

Se c’è una cosa che fa inviperire i cinesi è ricordar loro che hanno “gli occhi a mandorla“.

Quando li si vuole insultare, li si apostrofa in questa maniera.

E Herr Günter Oettinger c’è riuscito pienamente.

Poi, tanto per rincarare la dose, ha aggiunto che in Cina non ci sarebbe la democrazia: sembra che venga dal paese dei mirtilli invece che da una Germania dove cosa sia la democrazia ha ancora da succhiarlo dal biberon.

Ma il clou è arrivato alla fine.

«No women’s quota»

*

«no women»

* * * * * * *

Ma la Cina sta andando a gonfie vele, mentre l’Unione Europea stagna e si avvia alla estinzione, proprio perché non ha quelle «women’s quota» che hanno fatto infestare parlamenti, burocrazia, esercito, università ed ogni altro possibile ambito di femmine rampanti rabbiosamente vogliose di saltare dalle soffici alcolve a qualche posto di potere, purché ben remunerato.

In Cina si fa carriera per meriti comprovati nel proprio settore lavorativo, non perché si eccelle nell’arte con cui la sig.ra Ciccone vorrebbe ricompensare coloro che avessero votato Mrs Clinton.

Perché mai odia i cinesi a tal punto da voler che implementino le quote rosa?

*

Ma almeno una cosa vera Herr Günter Oettinger la ha detta:

«The politician also mocked Germany’s progressive social agenda, saying “compulsory gay marriage” would soon be introduced».

* * * * * * *

Ci si stupisce che l’Unione Europea se ne stia andando alla deriva?


Deutsche Welle. 2016-11-02. China umimpressed with German politician Oettinger’s racial slur

Beijing has slammed EU Digital Economy Commisions Günter Oettinger for his derogatory remarks about Chinese diplomats. The controversy-prone politician has said his comments were taken out of context.

China criticized the “irritating feeling of superiority” displayed by some Western politicians on Wednesday. The comments from a foreign ministry spokeswoman were a response to the outrage caused by German EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger referring to a delegation of Chinese diplomats as “slant eyes.”

In a somewhat restrained condemnation of the racial slur, Beijing said that it hoped Western leaders would “learn to see others as equal and treat them with respect.”

Oettinger’s comments garnered worldwide attention on Friday when a talk he had given in Hamburg was posted to YouTube. In the footage, Oettinger can also be heard saying of the Chinese diplomats: “Nine men, one party. No democracy. No women’s quota, no women.”

The European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society has been slammed for seeming to imply that women only attain top jobs because of preferential quotas. Oettigner responded by saying he was in fact criticizing misogyny in China.

Whatever his intention, it no doubt made Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel’s tense trip to Beijing all the more uncomfortable.

‘Compulsory gay marriage’

But it wasn’t only the Chinese that Oettinger managed to insult in the video clip. The politician also mocked Germany’s progressive social agenda, saying “compulsory gay marriage” would soon be introduced.

The 53-year-old Christian Democrat (CDU) is no stranger to political gaffes. In 2011, while serving as Commissioner for Energy, he described the situation in Fukushima, Japan as “an apocalypse.” He also called fellow EU countries Romania, Bulgaria and Italy “ungovernable” at a public event, and once compared digital rights activists to the Taliban.

Oettinger also famously once bemoaned that “there is no war anymore” in Europe – to help weapons-producing nations get out of debt.

The commissioner is poised to become the EU finance chief when incumbent Kristalina Georgieva steps down.  He downplayed the controversy in an interview with Die Welt newspaper, saying they were “casual remarks” and that he was not against gay marriage.
