A Confused Spain "Rebels" Against Germany... On Twitter

Tyler Durden's picture

Spain has not even asked Germany Europe for a formal bailout (well they did, but promptly recanted), not has Germany even granted one, and already the fiesty Iberians are protesting against Germany... if only on twitter. As can be seen below the #stopmerkel hashtags has taken Spain by storm. While we wholeheartedly support this expression of independence, we are a little confused just what Spain is protesting: a German bailout of insolvent Spanish banks? We expect once the initial "twitter revolt" subsides, and Spanish citizens realize they would rather have EURs than 95% devalued pesetas, or even Spiderman towels, in their insolvent banks, they will promptly revert to #merkelgive.
