German pilots refuse to carry out deportations

Following an information request from the Left party, the government said that 222 planned flights were stopped by pilots who wanted no part in the controversial return of refugees to Afghanistan, which has been deemed a “safe country of origin” in some cases, despite ongoing violence and repression in parts of the country.

    The best Germans died in Hitler’s mad pursuit of lebensraum. It’s just the dross left now.

  • Millie_Woods

    German pilots used to bomb cities all over Europe. Back then they were happily ‘only following orders’.

  • “Progressive” Europeans have gone mad.

  • k1992

    And the mad dash to extinction continues.

  • Denis

    fire them, they should not get to determine where they fly to.

  • canminuteman

    So build a shelter for them in the pilots neighborhood, and send the kids to the pilot’s kid’s school.

  • Slickfoot

    So ship them out on barges… pilots too.

  • Art Deco

    Presumably the pilots have employers. Why are their employers succoring this?

  • Hard Little Machine

    Excellent news. More people to fly those planes into buildings !

  • Dana Garcia

    Pilots shouldn’t think that airplane submission will prevent any future bombings in the air. Weakness tends to incite allah’s little helpers.

  • vimy

    god damn it Germany its been 72 years. There is nary a person alive who had anything to do with the second world war. Stop feeling guilty for the sins of your Fathers and Grand Fathers.

  • Watchman

    So these pilots are on strike everywhere since in every country there is “ongoing violence and repression in parts of the country”, often caused by un-deported illegal immigrants.

  • irishrus

    Those pilots must work for Air Afghanistan, certainly not with EL Al … They would gladly accept them, but have a better sense of what to do with them once in the air

  • Are there two hundred pilots who WILL carry out the deportations?

    • DVult

      I’d be willing to fly them but I am not too good on the landings.

  • richard

    Have the military fly them back.

    • trespasserswill

      Exactly! These repatriations shouldn’t be on civilian aircraft anyway- too much scope for shennannigans. Use military aircrew, military security and hercules type aircraft.

      • Blacksmith

        End with an air drop.

  • k1962

    Fly them home on a cargo plane then.
