Germans take to the streets to protest against ‘Islamisation’

A new type of anti-immigration protest is sweeping across Germany, as thousands take to the streets against what they say is the growing “Islamisation” of the country.

The new protests, which began in the city of Dresden in the former East Germany, feature no neo-Nazi slogans and have nothing to do with the traditional far right.

Instead the demonstrators have adopted the old rallying call of the protests against the East German communist regime that brought down the Berlin Wall 25 years ago, “Wir sind das Volk”, or “We are the people”. They say they want to preserve Germany’s Judeo-Christian Western culture.

    I have suddenly, despite my heart condition, developed an appetite for bratwurst.

    Finally. It’s overdue. Islam brings nothing of value to the West.

    Actually, the “Wir sind das Volk” saying was in fact part of the Nazi appeal, in the 1930s and onward — with prominent Nazis often wearing the rural, German “folk” constumes of the day. There is an old picture of Adolph Hitler in a folk costume, though he admitted not to like that type of costume.

    Having said that, the new German rightist protests are welcome, since they focus on opposing the Islamisation of Germany, and Europe. Nothing wrong with that, since — let’s face it — it is the Islamists who are the true Nazis in Europe, with the Islamist-friendly leftist embracing this nazism.

    • The German media and the political class will paint them with the Nazi brush but poll after poll has shown the unwashed masses are rightly concerned about Islam and share the protesters views.

    Its so sad that Canada is too PC for anything like this. 🙁

      I agree.
      Even a mention of gradual ‘islamisation’ of Canada or the devastating effect of huge influx of immigrants from third world countries on Canadian society will generally raise eyebrows & if you are outspoken about your opinion you’ll soon be a pariah.
