A Parable for Germany

Once there was an old man who in his youth committed a terrible crime, the murder of many innocents. He no longer could remember what drove him to do this; he tried not to think about it, and his memories came to mind unwillingly and infrequently. Rage and guilt had faded long ago into a vague residue of disgust. He worked hard and found some distraction in the monotony of daily tasks. He sought diversion in tasteless entertainment; he followed football, looked at pornography, watched the dubbed version of American comedies, and took vacations at the beach.

He had a child but no grandchildren; his child knew that he once did unforgivable things, but did not want to know what they were, and the old man did not want to tell him. The old crime hung like a black curtain between them.

    “Whom the gods destroy they first make mad.” Such is what is happening to Germany and the rest of Western Europe.

      The beheadings hurt a little less that way.

  • Very good article.
    “Germans nonetheless will do what the Obrigkeit [Authority] tells them, just as they always have done.” I hope the author is wrong. If not, Europe is done for (though some European countries might resist the invasion).

      My limited experience with Germans suggests he is correct. They very much believe in what the French call dirigisme, or direction by the state.

      Also, this quote is sad, but probably true: “There is no dissuading the Germans from hastening their own destruction.”

  • I would like to add this afterthought. Ironically, if Germany is truly trying, by its current importation of Muslim hordes into Europe, to make up for its guilt in the Nazi era, including its mass murder of European Jews, it is doing the opposite of what it thinks. The mass immigration of Muslims will result in unprecedented Antisemitism and mass murder of Jews and non-Jews, meaning that Germany will again have acquired enormous guilt for itself. Germany almost destroyed Europe seventy years ago, and is again about to destroy it through importation of uninhibited Muslim savages. History will remember Merkel as the 21st Cent. equivalent of Hitler, since she initiated this madness by her enormous stupidity.

      It’s insane. Perhaps it comes from the leftist notion that, because all cultures are equal by definition, the poor and backward must be the way they are because of oppression by the wealthy. And like the old man they expect the street urchin to be grateful.

    Another article (also from Gatestone):


    Seems that there is a theme developing.

    I am waiting for the day that the “M” in BMW will stand for Mohammed or maybe VW really means Victory for Wahabism.

    This is ,unfortunately , the end game for followers of the Frankfurt school insanity.
    It’s the culmination of 40years of intense indoctrination by supposedly educated teachers and faculties in all our universities .
    It can no more be corrected or turned around than the Muslim taugh civilized ways .In fact the barbarian Muslim is one of the main weapons
    Tools for destruction of the west utilized by progressive Marxists.

    • Yes, the indoctrination of youth by leftist teachers, media, etc. will take a generation or two to correct (once an earnest effort is done). Those already affected cannot easily be redeemed.

        Assuming it can be. Unless all the radical lefties are purged from education and from the universities that teach children it will never be undone.

    Don’t blame the Volks…..if they had a patriot/leader to make the necessary corrections they would be implemented efficiently and expeditiously. But Germans like us respect the rule of law. Look at that tyrant Obama…..the man is impeachable yet respect for the law and process although corrupted, is preferable to the alternative…

  • Spatchcocked

    Think on Operation Wetback….. just change the names and the location …..it can be done and it will be done in good time.

    The drug addled (?) or insane Germans elites are importing basic muslim scum who like to break stuff and kill people. They could have done much better if they had really wanted to. Then again, some of the imports will no doubt make pretty competent camp guards if a shortage of same is what the elites most fear.
