Es gibt drei Dinge, die sich nicht vereinen lassen: Intelligenz, Anständigkeit und Nationalsozialismus.
Man kann intelligent und Nazi sein. Dann ist man nicht anständig.
Man kann anständig und Nazi sein. Dann ist man nicht intelligent.
Und man kann anständig und intelligent sein. Dann ist man kein Nazi.
