A faux-German character from a 20-year-old British TV comedy series accurately mirrors the self-hating authoritarian mindset of 21st-century German culture, according to Politically Incorrect.

Jürgen the German
In the light of the hysterical reactions to the justified and necessary speech by Björn Höcke concerning the German remembrance culture — which basically consists mainly of targeted spiritual and intellectual blackmail of everyday citizen in this country through the Left and left-extremists in politics, media and institutions — these videos are a look back at an ideology-free England of times past, where even twenty years ago German national sensitivities and hang-ups had tossed barbs at them.
With “Jürgen the German” the beloved and legendary comic Harry Enfield created a figure who represented the typical German from a British point of view. A German about whom one could only laugh, but who was damned close to reality, and, in light of recent discussions in this country, seems to be even closer to reality now. Jürgen the German is the embarrassing laughingstock, at whom everyone in Britain laughs, mixed in with a hint of pity, but which is also embarrassingly touching because that kind of German actually exists en masse in reality in Germany: uptight, narrow-minded and humorless!
On the one hand, Jürgen the German is ashamed and apologizes permanently for Germany’s role in a war with Great Britain, but on the other hand he outs himself as a notorious know-it-all; aggressive phrases and emotions continually break through in which he mirrors the conveyed image of the typical German “Nazi” perfectly. Even back then, Enfield portrayed the current behavior of German “elites” extremely well and openly: On the outside they play the moral and tolerant Gutmensch, but as soon as that’s met with a different opinion, “enemies of refugees”, “Europe haters”, and “enemies of Greece” are knocked into shape by the Left and the Green speech and attitude police with all the German severity and anger available, regardless of how it’s done. Typically German!
