Welcome to the rabbit's hole. A blog on pulp.
Sometimes I wonder what kind of serious disease befalls those common men who find themselves thrown into the shark-basin of politics. Or publicity. Whatever.
But who ever looks at republican politics now must get a feeling of plain horror. OK, maybe he is an ex-terrorist. And maybe he should have been somewhat more decent. But who on earth thought that a terrorist even at the high age of 55 years renounces his views?
It’s not only, that what he stated could have come from the pope or from Oskar or from anyone left from Beckstein. It is simply about applying double standards on someone who already is jailed and thus is far more easy to condemn than a ordinary citizen with his proverbial clean slate. Klar killed people for his ideals and maybe this is not a very nice way to use one’s guaranteed right on free opinion. But the RAF was killing people who at least had to account for the consequences of their actions. Politicians have bodyguards because of this. He was not killing just someone.
Now he accepted the fact that killing people was the worst idea he could have. But why should he change his opinion. Who in god’s name said, that the the members of the RAF were jailed for their opinion? Oh, of course. Stoiber. Our great lawyer. I forgot.
