Germany’s Sigmar Gabriel defends middle finger gesture

HomeRael > Rael’s comments

Which planet is that where some mainstream media blur a finger!!! A FINGER! Wake up, it’s nothing sexual: it’s a finger!!! Blurring nipples is already difficult to accept… but a finger! So, showing the thumb up is okay, and the index to show the sky also, but the middle finger, no… What a terrible digital (digit) discrimination lol…Where will the political correctness stop? Will they start blurring cows udder? Tongues? Eyes blinking?


Germany’s economy minister and vice-chancellor has defended flicking the middle finger to a group of right-wing protesters earlier this month.

Sigmar Gabriel, who is Angela Merkel’s second-in-command, said his only mistake was not using both hands.

He said his critics should think about what they would do if faced with 12 “young, aggressive, swearing and ready-for-violence Nazis”.

Mr Gabriel was confronted by the hecklers in northern Germany.

They called him a traitor of the people and mentioned his father’s Nazi past.

Mr Gabriel has spoken openly of his father Walter, who he says was a supporter of Hitler’s Nazi party and denied the Holocaust until his death in 2012.

In a video released on social media of the incident, one of the protesters can be heard shouting: “Your father loved his country. And what are you doing? You’re ruining it.”

At the time, his political party the Social Democratic Party (SPD) called it an “emotional reaction” and released a statement saying: “Obviously Sigmar Gabriel does not regard that gesture to be an appropriate form of everyday communication, but communication was not possible with bellowing neo-Nazis who were clearly prepared to use violence.”
