16. If one lives by googling and cut and paste sound bites...

...one probably is not much of a thinker.

There is a logical fallacy called "Guilt by Association."

http://www.nizkor.org/features/fallacies/guilt-by-association.html

If a someone asserts that Adolf Hitler thought that the sky is blue, this does not prove that the sky is green.

The person asserting that the sky is green because Hitler said it was blue is, frankly, an idiot.

There are tons of sources showing that the German energy policy has produced some of the highest electricity prices and that the poor suffer as a result.

One must have no life whatsoever to spend one's time pulling up cut and pastes from the right wing press in order to prove that the sky is green.

Germany has the second highest electricity prices in Europe, after Denmark.

All the wiggling in the world will not change that fact.
