I don't have any grudge against Vikings or Scandinavians.
The Scandinavian countries are some of the best countries in the world.
They are true Germanic People. Not like the filthy Brits.

Actually 'squirrel' is not that hard to prounounce. Even if I don't get the pronunciation right you still understand me. In my opinion the hardest English word to pronounce is 'rural'. If I would say it you wouldn't understand me.
Americans struggle more with 'Kuchen' and 'Küchen' than with 'Eichhörnchen'.
or with 'schwul' and 'schwül'. This is related to the Topic because 'schwul' means 'gay'.
I already heard an American saying "Das Wetter ist schwul" (The weather is gay) instead of "Das Wetter ist schwül" (The weather is hot and humid).
schwul = gay

schwül = hot and humid
It's because you have problems with the 'ü' sound.
In contrast I have the most problems with the English 'r'. The English 'th' is not so hard for me.

The Vikings sailed up the Rhine killing men and capturing women and children to return to Scandinavian along with all the wealth they could get their hands on. There is no such thing as Germanic people and Brits, we all have common ancestors, you and I have a common ancestor. With DNA we can know if that was 100 years ago or 1,000 years ago or 10,000 years ago.

My grandfathers brother stayed in Germany when my grandfather moved to America and married a Swedish woman. They had 16 children, 12 of them lived. What if my grandfathers brother was your grandfather? If we look back far enough we all have the same people as our ancestors. And how do we know if my Swedish grandmother wasn't a captured German?

My point is only that we are all human and I am into inclusion not exclusion. Inclusion leads to peace and prosperity and exclusions leads to nationalism and war.

I understand the second sentence "I am convinced that you are just stupid" but I don't understand the first one.

No that's not true. We have different cultures. There are good and bad cultures.
The German culture is the best culture in the world.

If you are evil or not depends not so much on your genes. It depends more on the environment in which you were growing up. American culture is predestinated for being evil.
An American can be a good person if he grows up in Germany. Preconditioned that the bad influence of his American parents is not so big.

Yes Mallorca is often considered as the 17th German state. I have already been in Mallorca as well. I have been there with my parents when I was 12 years old. My last vacations were in Saudi Arabia when I visited my Aunt who is working there as an Economist. She often talks bad about the Americans there. She can't deal with them. She prefers the work with other Europeans.

Sometimes you sound more like Hitler than Hitler does.

HITLER: My feeling as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who, once lonely with only a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were, and calling me to fight them, and who, so help me, was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. With boundless love, as a Christian and as a man, I read the passages which relate how the Lord finally gathered His strength and made use of the whip in order to drive the usurers, the vipers, and cheats from the temple. Today 2,000 years later, I recognize with deep emotion Christ's tremendous fight for this world against the Jewish poison. I recognized this most profoundly by the fact that He had to shed his blood on the cross for his fight. As a Christian it is not my duty to permit myself to be cheated, but is my duty to be a champion of truth and of right.... As a Christian I owe something to my own people.... I am a veritable devil and not a Christian if I do not feel compassion and do not wage war, as our Lord did 2,000 years ago, against those who are pillaging and exploiting this poor people (the German people).... Two thousand years ago a man was likewise denounced by this particular race which today is denouncing and blaspheming everywhere.... That man was dragged into court and they said then: He is arousing the people! So he also was "agitating." And against whom? Against "God," they cried. Yes indeed he was agitating against the "god" of the Jews, for that "god" is money.(Munich, April 12, 1922; Voelkische Beobachter, April 22, 1922).

I know that here and there the objection has been raised: Yes, but you have deserted Christianity. No, it is not we that have deserted Christianity, it is those who came before us who deserted Christianity.... National Socialism neither opposes the Church nor is it anti-religious, but on the contrary it stands on the ground of real Christianity. And we have no other desire than to be true to that position.... These are not anti-Christian, these are Christian principles.(Speech at Koblenz, Aug. 26, 1934).

Hitler was often asked why Nazis use the swastika and replied,
And when it is said to me as many have: How can you carry your heathenish symbol in the van of this struggle when the Christian Cross alone is called to lead it? To this I say: This symbol is not directed against the Christian Cross. On the contrary, it is the political manifestation of what the Christian Cross intends or must intend.... One should from the vary beginnings preserve this Cross from any political contact until the structure of these political parties again becomes worthy of association with this symbol....(Munich, Oct. 25, 1930, Voelkische Beobachter, Oct. 28, 1930).

Adolf Hitler was baptized in a Catholic Church in 1889 and was never excommunicated or in any other way officially censured by the Catholic Church. Hitler frequently referred to God and Christianity in his various speeches and writings. In one 1933 speech, he said that "To do justice to God and our own conscience, we have turned once more to the German Volk." In another he said: "We were convinced that the people need and require this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out."

JESUS: John 5:24, "I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.

I prefer to be around Asians more than anyone, I consider most other people around the world to be savage barbarians because of their lack of manners and crude behavior. Certainly there are plenty of Americans who are shameless barbarians and they give good Americans a bad name. But even in Germany I found good people, prejudice people and evil people. It is a human thing not a race thing. If you are a bad person it is not because of where you were born or what color you are, but of who you are.
