Video: 15,000 at Pegida rally in Dresden; ‘civil war’ conditions at Frankfurt

After a one-week break, the Russian video news agency reported LIVE from the ‘Mother of all Pegidas’: RuptlyTV again today [presumably last night] from 18:30. Keynote speaker in Dresden is Tatjana Festerling, by the way.

Politically Incorrect also reports about Frankfurt: Civil war conditions in Frankfurt:

fft_buergerkriegAt the weekly rally in the Pegida of Frankfurt Rhein/Main, there has been severe excesses of the left counter demonstrators against the police and participants of the Pegida on Monday evening around the Willy-Brandt-Platz. Christine, an Pegida demonstrator (photo at left) was injured by leftists with a large stone and had to be treated by a doctor.

The successful PEGIDA event on Monday in Frankfurt with 130 participants, including new ones from the Civic Center, started by a young migrant, Eugene. “I have just had bad luck.”, he said, of his family situation.

His father was strict devout Muslim, who probably came from Syria. His mother was a Socialist. So he poured out his heart in front of us: “Each of you has shown today the courage, by gathering together to change something in our country, and then there is this horde of violent idiots. An Islamic satellite state? I’m sorry, but you have chosen the wrong country. We will defend our country and our freedom. Germany remains a free country”.

fft_pegida-440x348He was applauded and handed his microphone to the second speaker, Frank. He spoke about the Antifa [anti-fascists] and the other aggressive leftists and did very well.

Michael Stürzen Samuel was the third speaker. One of his main themes was the early sexualization of our children forced into education plans.

Citizens told at the end briefly why they had come to the demo. One citizen from Frankfurt was German, where a third mosque is being planned…

As the end we again gathered behind the church, as usual. Suddenly a police chief said: “You can’t run, the line is totally blocked by radical leftists.”

I doubt whether this is really so, and so they led me to the first block, where we were verbally attacked with sheer hatred and the usual Nazi-bashing.

fft_twitter_polizei3JPG-440x263Returning to the waiting participants I explained the situation to them. Of course they wanted to run. I was conflicted. On the one hand, knowing that the police knew the situation here in Frankfurt, but on the other hand, I did not want to disappoint the participants.

Could I risk that someone would be seriously injured by my decision — or maybe even worse? I waited and tried to concentrate, to make the right decision. After further discussions with the police, I decided that anyone who wanted to run should be brought by the police to the subway. Everyone decided voluntarily, no matter what it took, to run.

….When we started to run, left of us ran a parallel line of violent fascists, who were frothing with hatred towards us. A small group tried to stop us, but was pushed aside. They threw eggs and other items. At some point someone threw the big stone at Christine’s head. She was instantly covered in blood, was afterwards, thanks to the aid of the police, quickly in the hospital.

Christine was not intimidated by the injury and said: “We must continue to confront these left fascists and assert our right to freedom of expression and freedom of Assembly.”

By our departure to the subway, where violent left Fascists were waiting everywherem we were from the scene by the police…

    When will the Ontario chapter open?

    • Exile1981

      Or Alberta?

  • Frau Katze

    The second tweet reads “here is the mentioned windshield. An example of undemocratic, violent behaviour”

  • Frau Katze

    The first tweet doesn’t make sense with Google translate:

    As you can see just flew stones. Bicycles were the participants and thrown us.

    It really works badly. Oddly enough, it does Swedish well.

  • Martin B

    Stoning women. One more thing leftists & the Muzz have in common.

    • occupant 9

      That’s the feminist/mysogynist/metrosexual contribution.

  • Brett_McS

    Well done, Frau. Translation from a more complicated grammar to a simpler one seems to be more difficult. For an example of the opposite case, I have noticed that translation from Arabic to English works very well.

    • Frau Katze

      Yes, I’ve noticed that too (about Arabic).

  • Thinking From First Principles

    For what its worth, here are some thoughts that I hope can get to the PEGIDA folks.
    The message needs to be right for you to come across well. Please please please start using signs that say things like:
    “PEGIDA stands against racism by standing against Islam.”
    “Islam teaches racism against all non-Muslims (Quran 48:29). Stand against the racism of Islam!”
    “PEGIDA stands for tolerance by standing against the intolerance of Islam.”
    “Islam demands death for gays. Stand against the homophobia of Islam!”
    State clearly the positive position for which PEGIDA stands and the diametrically opposed intolerance of Islam that you are opposing.

    • Ho Hum

      I agree they need to be really careful with the messaging.

      The main message that I would be making if I were them:


      The PEGIDA members are always accused of being Neo-Nazi’s when in fact they are fighting against the rise of Fascism (Islamism) in their country. Of course it didn’t help that one of their leaders posted a picture of himself on Facebook dressed up as Hitler. All it takes is one idiot to discredit an entire movement.

  • The Antifas are truly leftist fascists. These are ignorant people, mostly lumpen-proletariat (I imagine) who try to give their life meaning and try to fit in to their peer groups by this kind of street demonstration against designated “enemies” – they are not thinking people, but conventional minds. Many are surely under drugs.

  • It’s time to take matters into the people’s hands, and kill off those parasitic islamic invaders. They do not belong in secular Western nations; they should be removed using any means necessary. As an atheist, I despise all religions, especially that of muslims.

  • bob e

    thank you frau .. i wept at the church bells .. ‘we are the people’

  • Christine Anderson

    Wow, even in Canady people talk about our very hard stand against the left fascists in Frankfurt/Germany. I am really impressed and glad that attention is being paid worldwide.
    Over here in Germany we are made to believe that it is only us Germans who have a problem with Islam (muslims), because we are the same old Nazi rassists as 70 years ago.

    However, there is all kinds of religious groups coexisting peacefully all over the world. It is always and everywhere only one particular group that causes problems wilth everybody else.

    What really annoys the hell out of me is the fact, that in Germany for the past 30 years no one cared about what God anyone was praying to or not. It simply did not matter. Religion was private business. Now, there is not a single day, where we are not being harrassed with that fascist ideologie, which claims to be a religion.

    Needless to say, that not a single official commented on that attack, which easily could have ended deadly.
    I bet, if my skin colour was darker and I was anything else, but a causian european woman, at the very least that sorry excuse of a president that we have plus that unworthy chancellor of ours would have visited me by now expressing their compassion. But since I am just a European, who cares?

    Here is another picture that was taken from me on Monday night:
