Things continue to become more and more interesting in the European Union when it comes to questions of migrant policy, refugees and border security. Just this morning we saw how the United States was bailing out on one agreement cooked up by the United Nations which sought to force countries to abide by international agreements on this score. But some news broke on the other side of the pond over the past few days which seems to indicate that the backlash is spreading and other countries are falling in line behind Donald Trump’s example.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet with the families of the 12 people killed in a terrorist attack that targeted a Christmas market in Berlin last year, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.
The announcement comes after the relatives of those killed wrote a letter published in the Hamburg-based Der Spiegel news magazine that accused her of “political inaction” and failing to reach out in the aftermath.
Germany may be soon recalled to the polls after Ms Merkel failed to conclude talks with coalition partners in order to prop up a new Christian Democratic Union (CDU) Government.
And AfD co-leader Alice Wiedel warned her party was ready to further gains should new elections be called.
She said: “Merkel is finished. This shows that the AfD works because we prevented a black and green government [with the CDU/CSU and Greens].
Anti-mass immigration party to place a motion to this effect in German parliament next week.
Berlin: Germany could be forced to hold new elections after high-stakes talks for a coalition collapsed Sunday between Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative CDU-CSU alliance, ecologist Greens and pro-business FDP.
Here are some possible scenarios for Europe’s biggest economy.
Germany could be heading for a snap election, unless the Chancellor’s Christian Democratic Union party (CDU) can iron out disagreements with their would-be coalition partners over climate and migration policy.
All parties are anxious to avoid a repeat election, which they fear could boost the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which surged into parliament for the first time in September’s national election.
Merkel’s CDU/CSU alliance had already recently dipped to 31%, a stark contrast to Viktor Orban’s support in Hungary where he’s backed by 59%. Merkel’s party have now sunk to 29%.
Things just go from bad to worse for Angela Merkel, as conservatives from within her own party are now openly calling for her to resign.
Seems appropriate that schadenfreude is a German word, yes?
The operation was part of an elaborate government coverup to keep the extent of migrant influx from of the German public. “Pictures, like the ones at the Munich train station [back in 2015], with thousands of refugees arriving en masse and being photographed by journalists, should not recur again,” Schubert said reviewing secret documents belonging to the Bavaria State’s Ministry of Internal Affairs.
In an interview with a French newspaper at the weekend the German feminist and journalist, Alice Schwarzer, explained that Angela Merkel’s greatest mistake was that ‘even before the migrant crisis she had not understood the difference between Islam and Islamism, between the religion and the political ideology’. Schwarzer blamed Merkel’s failure to grasp the crucial difference on the fact she’s the daughter of a pastor, who preached tolerance and kindness. The same criticism can be levelled at Theresa May, whose father was a vicar, and no doubt delivered sermons on similar themes. The PM, like the German Chancellor, seems to believe that in the end the Islamists will come round to our way of thinking and embrace our set of values.
Headlines you won’t see in the U.S. media. According to the latest media report Angela Merkel has won reelection but only garnered 32.9% of the vote (2013 election was 41.5%).
This means in victory Angela Merkel has less support in Germany than Donald Trump has in the U.S. However, don’t expect that reality to stop the global leftist media from selling a narrative of optical success surrounding Merkel’s election. Too funny.
Stephan Brandner, the newly elected Member of the Bundestag for Erfurt, told reporters the party will press ahead with an inquiry into Merkel’s handling of the migrant crisis.
The most effective German Chancellor since Adolf Hitler will be with us for the foreseeable future. That means more Muslim migrants, and more of the attendant crime, including the wholesale sexual assault of Infidel women who dare to go out uncovered, and more authoritarian censorship of dissenting voices, not just in Germany, but worldwide.
Angela Merkel’s conservative bloc won 32.5% of the vote, down from 41.5% in the 2013 German elections, right-wing Alternative for Germany enters parliament for the first time with 13.5% of the vote.
