You know, when Germany succeed in something stupid people always start this Nazi thing. They are cruel and Nazi and must be hated. Do these people know what a Nazi is? I’m sure they aren’t. Have they ever realized that poor Germany suffer because of one, only ONE idiot who didn’t know what he was doing during WW II. Germans can’t be blamed, they can’t help it. It happened, yes. But it’s over.

Look at them. Just look at their faces…People like you and me, people with great personalities and big hearts. They weren’t even born when Nazis existed. Why hate them then?

Did he hurt them? NO. Just look at him, you can’t hate his baby face.

Or him? He was one of the biggest heroes yesterday.

Or him? Did he hurt anyone? I doubt it.

Or not only football…

What about him?

Or him?

The other Nico? You cannot NOT love him.

And you cannot say a fucking wrong word about him

I’m interested in sports so I know them but I bet other Germans are as nice as them. The World Cup’s slogan was ‘Say no to racism’. It’s not just about gender, sexuality, religion but nationality as well. Germany is one of the most powerful nation if not the most powerful in my opinion. Their country was destroyed for many many times and they stood up. Never gave up and became strong. They work hard for everything. They should be respected not hated. I’m saying this and I’m not even German.

RESPECT GERMANY!
