Fogh misforstår bevidst Vestager. Ikke bare lidt. Han voldtager hendes udsagn – ellers kan han ikke bruge det. At Margrethe Vestager stiller sig i en position, hvor hun bevidst kan misforstås, er så hendes fejl.
Or in English:
Fogh is deliberately misunderstanding Vestager. Not just a bit. He’s raping her statement – because he couldn’t use it otherwise. That Vestager has placed herself in a position where she can be deliberately misunderstood is a different matter.
Perhaps Fogh’s distortion of both the Social Liberal standpoint and Danish political history wasn’t that surprising but the crudeness of the argumentation is noteworthy. But then again, Fogh seems to make a Karl Rove-like petty envy the basis of his political project.
But let me, just in order to keep the low level of discourse, note that there were two parties who were spectacularly absent from the Danish resistance movement during WW2: The Social Liberals – motivated by a curious mix of realism and pacifism – and Fogh Rasmussen’s Liberals – motivated by greed as farmers were busy producing for the German market.
Seriously, there is more to be said about Margrethe Vestager’s complete lack of political timing and Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s non-fact based foreign policies.
