Government in a twist over ‘pinstriped Nazis’

Starting in the east in October and spreading to other cities, the marches led by the group Pegida (“Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West”) are having serious repercussions, with the far right misrepresenting its real agenda, Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière told ARD television on Thursday evening.

“We can already feel how the climate in Germany society is becoming more raw,” he said.

The ring leaders of the marches are not true Europeans, he stressed, but conceding that the appeal of the protests was growing for many people: “The participants include many people who are expressing their concern about the challenges of our time,” he added.

Same old crap – Tar anyone who voices concern over immigration and or Islam as a racist or Nazi.

“The ring leaders of the marches are not true Europeans” No they’re not, they’re citizens – of Germany, just as UKIP are Brits.

As I have long maintained, both in Canada and abroad the general public is well ahead of the curve regarding the threat posed by Islam and the Ponzi scheme of mass immigration.

The political class will ignore this, until it’s too late – for them.

    It’s about time, with Mayor Nemshi bleating any one disagreeing with the narriative is a “Hill-Billy” it will soon be the turn of the elite’ to feel the wrath of ordinary citizens.

    • That day will come.

    • Pete_Brewster

      Aye, a hillbilly. Because it’s white Albertans and unrepentant Socreds who marry their nieces, and not Nenshi’s “community.”

    The interesting question will be if the German protests scale. 10, 000 can be marginalised, but put a hundred thousand in the street and the pols are essentially screwed.

    And you’re right, the general population is miles ahead of the elites. We recognize that Muslim immigrants are much more problematic than immigrants from most other cultures. Now to hold the pols feet to the fire.

    “The political class will ignore this, until it’s too late – for them.” – Unfortunately, it is too late for all of us. I don’t see any way out of this. The Western world is finished.

      Stfu, the Western world will survive and thrive, after a period of hell, just like we did during both world wars. Defeatists could do everyone a favour and shut their holes.

        I hope you’re right. I’m not so optimistic but I’d be very happy to be wrong.
