The World Cup is fast upon us. For most Americans, soccer means Brazil: Pele, Ronaldinho, etc. We know every little about the sport really. And if the media provides any coverage, it’s usually centered around Brazilian dominance. This is merely another example of the media playing loose with the facts.
Germany is neck-and-neck with Brazil for the title of “World’s Best”; in fact, Germany’s accomplishments are equal to (or more impressive than) that of Brazil.
A quick review of the numbers will prove this to be true:
1.) 4 World Cup Victories
2.) The Greatest Scorer in World Cup History
3.) The Greatest Scorer in a Single World Cup Tournament
4.) Germany Was Playing With Only 50% of Its Players for Most of World Cup History
The question arises: Why does Germany not receive the credit they deserve in the American media? I think the answer is simple, yet too politically incorrect to utter. The American media is Jewish dominated (Max Kellerman, Chris Berman, Lisa Cohn, Bob Arum…I’ll stop there for fear of redundancy). Many of these people will never give Germany its proper recognition. They have been taught to hate Germany since they were in the crib and it’s all they know.
For my part, I’d like to see Germany win the cup again (seeing as how the United States did not qualify). The only negative part would be that it would strengthen national pride in Germany, which could lead to more support for that misbehaving young boy, Angela Merkel.
At any rate, I’m looking forward to an exciting series of matches and may the best team win! See you on the pitch…
