BRUSSELS, Belgium — The European Commission has attacked as “beneath contempt” a campaign in Britain against the euro currency featuring Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
Cinemas in Britain began showing on Wednesday the ad in which British actor Rik Mayall appears dressed as Hitler, parodies his famous salute and declares: “Ein Volk! Ein Reich! Ein Euro!” (one people, one empire, one euro).
Amusing that they come out harder against comic spoofs using dictators than they do against ACTUAL genocidal maniacs. Like Hitler. Or Milosevic. Or Arafat. Or Mugabe.
