German Soccer Fans Still Angry About U.S. Bombings Of East Germany Fly Osama Bin Laden Banner For 9/11

By 09.14.16

As everyone here knows, last weekend marked the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the deadliest terrorist attacks to ever occur on American soil. I was in NYC last weekend, a city I love beyond compare. The devastation left by Osama Bin Laden’s 9/11 attacks is still palpable in the hearts of New Yorkers who lost loved ones on September 11th, and in the eyes of New York’s finest, the FDNY and NYPD, who threw themselves head first into Ground Zero that day and are now suffering from extreme spikes in cancer due to hazardous materials at the World Trade Center attacks. Last weekend the city of New York paid homage to all of those who lost their lives on 9/11, but across the Atlantic Ocean a bunch of German soccer fans took the opportunity to fly an Osama Bin Laden flag in honor of the attacks because they’re still bitter about U.S. bombings of East Germany:

UK Metro reports:

German club Hansa Rostok look set to face action from football authorities after fans unveiled a banner depicting Osama Bin Laden just two days before the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The huge banner of the terrorist leader was raised as manic dancing fans waved scarves around their heads and chanted songs. Numerous flares were also set off.
The former Bundesliga team are based in an area of East Germany which was heavily bombed by the United States during WWII and long-lasting anger appears yet to subside with this lot.

I don’t know about you bros, but I’m sitting here wondering if Germany has any oil? We’ve already whooped their asses how many times? I’m pretty sure we could send our JROTC and still liberate the non-shithead Germans in a matter of days whilst separating the people from their oil.

At this moment, I’m ashamed that I have any German heritage in my ancestry. I’m ashamed that people like this fuckbois from Hansa Rostok even exist. But at the end of the day I’m not going to lose sleep over this. We live in the greatest country in the world and America’s ability to bind together in the face of adversity is one of our greatest strengths as a nation.
