The EU should imprison John McCain

This is not an opinion of mine. It is simple logic. European interior ministers have agreed on a new law that "makes it an offence to condone or grossly trivialise crimes of genocide - but only if the effect is incitement to violence or hatred." Turns out that US presidential contender John McCain grossly trivialises crimes of genocide and incites to violence and hatred. AP reports:
In response to an audience question about military action against Iran, the Arizona senator briefly sang the chorus of the surf-rocker classic "Barbara Ann." "That old, eh, that old Beach Boys song, Bomb Iran," he said in jest Wednesday, chuckling with the crowd. Then, he softly sang to the melody: "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, anyway, ah ..." The audience responded with more laughter.
You can watch the YouTube video of the grotesque moment through this SOTT article. I think I ought to send it to those EU ministers.
