Still pounding my head on the desk

From yesterday, for the record:



At a press conference, Social Democratic Party leader Fukushima Mizuho declared, "Japan is not the world of 'Heil Hitler!'"
Even after a day, I am still awestruck at the multiplicity of absurdities and ironies nested inside this brief utterance.

(Yes, I know I translated sekai as "country" yesterday and "world" today. Both translations are permissible, given the context)
