Guardian: Paris attack: German anti-immigrant groups say it is proof of Islamist threat

German anti-immigrant groups have been quick to respond to the murderous attacks in Paris saying they are proof of the significant threat posed by Islamists and the extent to which mainstream parties have tried to downplay the dangers.

Pegida, or Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the Western World, a right-wing populist group which has been gaining support in weekly demonstrations since October, said in a statement that the attacks confirmed their views.

“The Islamists, which Pegida has been warning about for 12 weeks, showed France that they are not capable of democracy, but instead look to violence and death as an answer,” it said in a statement on its Facebook page.

“Our politicians want us to believe the opposite. Must such a tragedy happen here in Germany first???”…

…But Volker Kauder, chair of Angela Merkel’s CDU/CSU parliamentary group in the Bundestag, condemned the AfD’s comments as “filth” and accused the group of exploiting the attacks.

“It’s filth to instrumentalise the attacks for political gain,” he told Focus magazine…

“Exploiting attacks”! What a joke. As if no leftist pol ever exploited current affairs for gain.  

  • There will be war

      I actually can’t see how Europe will avoid a civil war. Either the islamists are driven from europe or the europeans are driven out they can not co-exist any longer. Even if the europeans where to stop any more invaders from entering it still would not be enough as the islamists would use it as a pretext to kill again.

        Will it be harder to expel the first 1,000 or the last 1,000?

        • Exile1981

          depends on how you do it.

      • I think a civil war is inevitable, people have no faith that their own political class will act in their best interests any longer, a sentiment I share regarding our situation in Canada.

        Add on to this the sovereignty and rights robbing EU monster and something will have to give.

        War is the likely outcome.

          Some of those same issues are coming to the US and Canada. If Trudeau wins next fall dose anyone doubt he will make it harder to criticize islam? or push for bringing back the gun registry – especially given how much money the liberals siphoned out of it into campaign coffers over the years it existed.

          Yes, civil war is inevitable: but I fear very much that victory is by no means assured. The Mohammedan mob may actually win it. They fight dirty. I live in Europe myself, and we are entering dark times.

          Agreed, but will it be a war between the majority culture and Islamists or a war between anti-Islamists and the government?

      What do you mean “will be?”

  • dukestreet

    Actually, I don’t think any western nation should be importing any more people from Islamist countries. Canada and the US will soon be the same as Europe unless we insist our politicians stop opening our doors to more of them. Multiculturalism does not work and these people have no real interest in becoming a part of the country. They are waiting until they have sufficient numbers to impose their will. Theve already done so in some places,like my neighborhood.

    • They are settlers not immigrants and Islam is a supremacist ideology. Every chance you get let your MP know.

  • Alain

    So stating self-evident facts is now called filth for political gain according to the traitors whoring for votes. Western traitors are making comments every bit as unhinged as the Muslims claiming they invented rights for women.

    • I see a new Nuremberg in Germany’s future.

      • Pete_Brewster

        With Comrade Erika in the dock, I hope.

    Volker Kauder, chair of Angela Hiter’s CDU/NAZI parliamentary group in the Reichstag, condemned the AfD’s comments as “filth” and accused the group of exploiting the attacks.

    Heil Merkel!

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Push is coming to shove in Europe and the elites are whistling past the graveyard.

    • I do hope that the wider’s of Europe enjoy success. I wish we had our own.

  • tom_billesley

    The leftist politicians are rushing forward to be seen in the media soothing the feelings of muslims terrorized by the apprehended islamophobic backlash. But that’s not exploiting the situation, is it?

  • tom_billesley

    ” …proof of the significant threat posed by Islamists….”
    As if that additional pebble of proof were needed on top of the mountain.

    • It amazes me how the left a capable of ignoring a veritable mountain of evidence that grows higher every single day.

  • robins111

    These politicians are the same scabby bastards who grave dance at any shooting to demand further gun control, but call an honest reaction ‘filth’… Guess it isn’t hard to find the real purveyors of filth in the German government.

    Politicians say, “appease the crocodile.”
