If Europeans ban the Nazi symbol, how are they going to protest George W. Bush when he visits?
It’s a good rule of thumb that, no matter how big an idiot someone is, he can never compete with the political class’s response to his idiocy. Thus, whatever feelings of unease I might have had about Prince Hitler were swept away the moment the rent-a-quote humbugs started lining up to denounce him.
I say to Harry: you go, girlfriend, you Reichstone Cowboy you. It’s uniforms night at my pad every Thursday and you’re more than welcome, Your Royal Heilness.
The most idiotic response came from British conservative leader Michael Howard: “I think it might be appropriate for [Harry] to tell us himself just how contrite he now is.” About which Steyn writes:
What’s conservative about demanding people submit to public self-abasement? Wasn’t it the Commies who used to insist you recant on TV and then disappear into re-education camp? A conservative party ought to be a refuge from the sanctimonious nannytollahs of the age. But, from his shabby Kerryesque opportunism on the war down, Mr Howard has no discernible coherent political philosophy – except for his all-pervasive authoritarianism, into which his repellent call for a display of princely contrition fits all too neatly.
Are there any conservatives in the Conservative Party?
