If it weren’t for the evil Nazis, then Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who deliberately crashed an airplane in the French Alps last week, wouldn’t have been permitted to fly.
So says the Daily Mail:
Strict German privacy laws which prevented doctors treating Andreas Lubitz from telling his airline about his ‘suicidal tendencies’ were introduced in response to Nazi rule.
The Germanwings pilot had been forced to stop his training because of severe depression and had received psychotherapy for several years before last week’s Alps disaster.
But German law meant it was left entirely up to him to volunteer his mental health problems to his employer, something he failed to do with devastating consequences after tearing up a sick note for the day of the crash.
How stupid. Whenever the Daily Mail publishes a ridiculous headline involving the German National Socialists, it’s almost as if they are atoning for their former support of Oswald Mosley and his British Union of Fascists in the 1930s.
