Then I am humorless too. Will your next song be "Die Fahne hoch die Reihen fest geschlossen" because the Germans have such good defense?
No, because the Horst-Wessel Lied was made especially for the Nazi party. The first stanza of the Deutschlandlied goes back to the holy roman empire, and used as an anthem for the Weimar republic. False analogy.
