Merkel says refugees didn't bring Islamist terrorism to Germany

The facts mean nothing to this womyn.

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

Via Reuters: Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday refugees had not brought terrorism to Germany, adding that Islam belonged in the country as long as it was practiced in a way that respected the constitution.
More than a million people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere arrived in Germany last year. The mood towards them has soured after a spate of attacks on civilians last month, including three carried out by migrants.
Two of those attacks were claimed by the Islamic State militant group.
“The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees,” Merkel said at an election campaign event for her Christian Democrats in the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ahead of a regional vote on Sept. 4.
Merkel said many people had traveled from Germany to Syria for training with Islamist militants. In June Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said a total of more than 800 were believed to have gone to Syria and Iraq.
“This group has worried us for several years,” she said at the event in Neustrelitz, a town 100 km (60 miles) north of Berlin.
Merkel’s popularity has suffered in the wake of the attacks and 52 percent of Germans think her migrant policy is bad, a poll published last week showed.
The influx of migrants, many of whom are Muslim, has boosted support for the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD), which is expected to perform well in elections in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Berlin.
“We have said clearly that an Islam that works and lives on the basis of the constitution … belongs to Germany,” Merkel said. She added that a type of Islam that did not stick to the constitution or accept equal rights for women had no place in the country.

Angela Merkel urges company chiefs to hire more refugees to reduce the number relying on German state handouts

Liberal logic at work.

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

From Daily Mail: Angela Merkel has invited big company executives to attend a summit next month where she will urge them to hire more refugees.
More than one million migrants flooded into Germany last year, and the government wants to get as many as possible into the job market. This will reduce their dependence on the state and compensate for labour shortages as the workforce ages.
Merkel will push reluctant German companies to offer more traineeships and positions to refugees, the newspaper Bild reported.
Large companies have been criticized for doing little to help integrate the refugees into the thriving job market. Companies say most of the new arrivals lack the German language skills and the education required for a job.
Engineering giant Siemens, chemicals group Evonik , carmakers Opel and VW and utility RWE will share with Merkel the results of pilot projects with refugees. Merkel’s office declined to confirm Bild’s report, which said the meeting at the chancellery will take place September 14.
The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported a month ago that the 30 biggest DAX-listed companies had until June employed only 54 refugees, including 50 who were hired by logistics provider Deutsche Post.

Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel last month urged large companies to do more for refugees, saying their efforts pale in comparison to the Mittelstand, the small and medium-size companies considered the backbone of Europe’s biggest economy.
More than 1.1 million migrants arrived in Germany last year, mostly refugees fleeing conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Europe on verge of civil war, as Muslim 'migrants' live rent-free & Swedes are asked to give up their country homes

As the governments of continental Europe continue to accomodate Muslim “refugees” and migrants at the expense of their own peoples, some are sounding the alarm that Europe is on the verge of civil war.
In Sweden, as reported by Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet (via Sputnik News), residents in the municipality of Norrtälje, north of Stockholm, are “encouraged” to allow freshly arrived immigrants to live in their country homes this winter.
Norrtalje, SwedenNorrtälje authorities asked the residents in a targeted mailing: “Does your country house stand empty in winter?” The idea is to address the acute housing shortage by matching up home owners with homeless immigrants.
Ali Rashidi, head of social services at Norrtälje Municipality, said that in some cases, the municipality may step in and ensure rents will be paid in full: “Most of the people are well-behaved. Besides, refugees get establishment support from the Employment Service, which should also suffice to pay the rent.”
Willich, GermanyMeanwhile, in Germany, the city government of Willich approved a contract with the MegaVillage AG corporation to build 70 new houses that will be the first official refugee village right in the middle of a German town.
According to Investment Watch Blog, each new home will be fully equipped with all the necessities, where “migrant” families will live rent free. The refugee village will also have two cafetarias, community dining rooms, laundry rooms and on-site doctors. Nearby are grocery stores, schools and kindergartens.
To pay for the new construction, the city of Willich has allocated an additional 2 million Euros in addition to the current 7.5 million€ to house 280 “refugees”. That comes to roughly 15,000€ per refugee per year just for housing. When health care, administrative and unemployment benefits are added to the housing, the total expenditure comes to 50,000€ per refugee — 4,000€ more than the average 46,000€ wage of German workers.
German chancellor Angela Merkel’s “open border” refugee policy already has resulted in the country taking in more than 1.2 million “refugees” last year. The German government intends to spend a total of €93.6 billion on the “refugees” through 2020. This in spite of the fact that 860,000 German citizens are currently homeless; millions of pensioners live below the poverty line and must resort to collecting returnable bottles or eating cat food; and many German families choose not to have children because they simply cannot afford it.
All of which has led to a surge in popularity of new, so-called “right wing” parties in Europe, notably the AfD (Alternative for Germany), which has won 25% of the vote in their first elections.
Some European leaders are sounding the alarm that the continent in on the verge of civil war due to popular frustration over the “refugee” invasion.

1) France

A city councilor in southern France warns that some French citizens are gearing up for civil war as gun club memberships exploded in the aftermath of three massive terror attacks that have rocked the country.
As reported by Paul Joseph Watson for InfoWars, July 18, 2016, Jonathan Miller, an elected council member in the village of Caux, writes in an op/ed titled, “What next? Could France be facing a civil war?,”that the recent Nice truck attack has “shaken France to the brink of a terrifying escalation” and the country “may be on the edge of something resembling a civil war.”
According to Miller, membership in his local gun club has “quadrupled, from 200 to 800 members” in the last few months alone. One village resident told Miller that “They’re getting ready for a war.”
Miller writes, “I talk to a lot of people at every level of French society and I am detecting a change of mood. And the mood is turning nasty.” He is “no longer taking for granted that they will put up with this much longer.”
Miller explains that a lot of citizens are voting for right-wing politicians not because they are neo-fascists but because “They are frightened” and nobody aside from people like Marine Le Pen have offered anything different from President François Hollande’s feeble response to the terrorist attacks or Prime Minister Manuel Valls’ defeatist admonition that France must “learn to live” with terror attacks, for which Valls was booed by the crowd as he attended a memorial in Nice.

Miller is not the only prominent voice to warn of the potential for civil war in France.

Patrick Calvar, DGSIEven before the latest attack in Nice, Patrick Calvar, head of the Directorate General of Internal Security (DGSI), told members of a French parliamentary commission that “We are on the brink of civil war” and that one or two more jihadist terror attacks or a Cologne-style mass molestation incident could lead to a huge right-wing backlash.

According to intelligence sources, the French government’s security forces are preparing for mass civil unrest as radicalized immigrants take over entire neighborhoods.

2) Switzerland

Meanwhile, in Switzerland, Army chief Lieutenant-General André Blattmann has issued a warning to the people of Europe that a civil war is about to breakout. Blattmann warns fellow Swiss that society is so close to breaking down that they must take steps to arm and protect themselves from the inevitable civil war.
Swiss Army Lieutenant-General André BlattmannSpeisa.com reports that Blattmann has been head of the Armed Forces since March 1, 2009, “and his words carry very significant weight in a country in which several Citizens’ Initiative referenda against burqas and mosques have proven enormously popular as concerns grow about immigration and Islamisation. In the last two World Wars, the Swiss combination of mountains and armed citizenry preserved the country’s peace and neutrality, but in the coming conflict, Switzerland already has its own massive fifth column.”
According to Investment Watch Blog, the newspaper Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten reports that Blattman said:

“The situation is growing increasingly risky. The threat of terror is rising, hybrid wars are being fought around the globe; the economic outlook is gloomy and the resulting migration flows of displaced persons and refugees have assumed unforeseen dimensions. Social unrest can not be ruled out [as the vocabulary in public discourse become] dangerously aggressive.”

Blattmann reminds Swiss that Switzerland’s neighboring countries, France and Austria, both face massive problems with immigration, Islamization, and the elite’s repression of general concern about what is going on. Social unrest in those countries could bleed into Switzerland, which is why Swiss must arm themselves.

Germans finally waking up: Thousands of German protesters take to the streets saying she 'Must Go'

About time.
From Daily Mail: Merkel’s premiership is hanging by a thread today as thousands gathered to call for her resignation while a key political ally dramatically withdrew his support over immigration policy. 
More than 5,000 protested in Berlin and thousands more throughout Germany over the ‘open-door’ policy that many have blamed for four brutal terrorist attacks that left 13 dead over the last month. The Chancellor faced a fresh wave of fury after it emerged that two recent terror attacks and a third killing were carried out by men who entered the country as refugees.
Despite the massive waves of criticism, Merkel defended her policy this week, dramatically proclaiming ‘we can do it’ as she pledged not to let the violent acts guide political decisions.
But now her key ally in Bavaria – which bore the brunt of the attacks – has launched a fresh attack on her leadership, distancing his party from Merkel and straining the coalition that keeps her in power.
Horst Seehofer, the conservative premier of Bavaria, said he did not share Merkel’s ‘we can do it’ credo on accommodating the almost 1.1 million migrants and refugees who arrived in 2015. Seehofer, who leads the Christian Social Union, the sister party to Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats, said today ‘”We can do this” – I cannot, with the best will, adopt this phrase as my own.’
Speaking after a meeting with the Bavarian government in Tegernsee, he added that the solutions to date were ‘too inadequate.’ Stressing he had no wish to start a quarrel with Merkel’s party, Seehofer said it was important to look ‘reality’ in the face.
An axe rampage, a shooting spree, a knife attack and a suicide bombing in the span of a week stunned Germany, leaving 13 people dead, including three assailants, and dozens wounded. Three of the four attackers were asylum seekers, and two of the assaults were claimed by the Islamic State group.
‘Merkel must go’ has been trending on social media, with people posting powerful pictures including one claiming that she has blood on her hands after recent attacks. The picture shows her splattered with blood, while another depicts her wearing a Burka.
A new survey found that 83 per cent of Germans see immigration as their nation’s biggest challenge – twice as many as a year ago. 
Recent attacks have fueled the right-wing right-minded movement, which has long called for stricter immigration controls, particularly in Bavaria, where she faces heavy criticism from high-profile politicians. Yesterday, thousands of protesters calling for her to step down also met counter-protests from the anti-right-wing movement, in Germany – which is still in a state of high alert.
But in a powerful speech on Thursday, Merkel said that she would not allow jihadists to keep her government from being guided by reason and compassion. ‘Despite the great unease these events inspire, fear can’t be the guide for political decisions,’ she said. ‘It is my deep conviction that we cannot let our way of life be destroyed,’ she added.
After the Bavaria attacks, Seehofer initially called into question the principle that asylum seekers should never be sent back to war zones. He later backtracked, citing international law. However, he insisted previously: ‘We must seriously consider how such people should be treated if they violate the law or can be considered a danger.’

Thanks to Merkel's immigration policies, Germany is toast

Suicide by Political Correctness.

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

From Washington Post:  With Germany stunned by a series of bloody attacks, Chancellor Angela Merkel called Thursday for an “early warning system” to detect radicalization among asylum seekers even as she insisted that the nation still has a moral duty to offer sanctuary to those fleeing war.
In her most comprehensive remarks since a wave of violence this month, Merkel described new fears gripping Europe. She said Germans were now locked in “a struggle, or a war, if you like” with the Islamic State, but could not turn their back on people in genuine need.
The welcome-mat policies of Merkel’s government have come under increasing criticism and demands for review. Germany has taken in more than 1.3 million refugees, asylum seekers and others since last year, including many fleeing war in Syria and elsewhere.
But even some former supporters of the policies have raised questions after four assaults in the span of two weeks — including two involving asylum seekers who had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.
“Fear cannot be the guide for political action,” Merkel said. “I didn’t say this was a going to be simple. That we could just do it. But I am still convinced that we can do it,” she added. “This is a historic test in a time of globalization.”
Yet she also called for new steps and faster implementation of existing decisions to improve national security. Merkel said she has spoken with President Obama about increasing intelligence cooperation — seeking to improve the lines of communication that have been tested since revelations in 2013 that U.S. intelligence had spied on the chancellor.
She additionally called for the army to begin training under the supervision of German police, so it could respond in the event of major terrorist attacks. In a nation still leery of army involvement in domestic affairs, given the Nazi and Cold War eras, her proposals are seen as significant.
An editorial published this week by Bayernkurier, the newspaper in Bavaria of the Christian Social Union, one of Merkel’s coalition partners, blasted her for opening the door to risk. “The chancellor has subjected us to a security risk with her open borders and arms,” the editorial stated. “Tens of thousands of people of fighting age who haven’t been properly registered are in our country. Of many of them, the state neither knows their proper name, nor their right age, nor their current place of residence.”
Merkel on Thursday reiterated plans to increase Internet surveillance and hire a consulting firm to examine Germany’s deportation system. She also called for tighter weapons laws to prevent the sale of guns on the Internet.

Asylum seekers sexually assaulted women at concert in Germany

Paging Amal Clooney.
From Evening Standard: A group of asylum seekers sexually assaulted women at a music concert in the German city of Darmstadt, said police.
Three Pakistani men are already under arrest after 18 women filed complaints that they had been improperly touched, fondled and groped during the festival in the city of Darmstadt. Police have said the number of complainants could rise.
Between two and three more men were still being sought by police as victims received counselling and authorities tried to dampen rising tensions against migrants.
All the complainants said they were “surrounded” by their tormentors before being “touched and fondled” improperly at the annual free Schlossgrabenfestes music festival.
The three arrested men are aged between 28 and 31 and are Pakistanis seeking asylum in Germany. All have been charged with sexual crimes as the hunt continues for their accomplices.
Media reports said that at least 15 more women are expected to come forward to file criminal complaints after they were groped at the festival on sunday where around 100,000 people were in the crowds over the four-day event.
The attacks mirror those in Cologne on New Year’s Eve – when large groups of men sexually attacked hundreds of young women.

Huffington Post published names and faces of those who oppose Germany's "migrant" policy

The Huffington Post, the liberal website founded by Arianna Huffington, has a branch in Germany, also called The Huffington Post (HuffPo).
In an article (originally published on August 14, 2015 and updated through August 16), HuffPo (Germany) published the names and photos of people who had commented on social media opposing the ongoing “refugee-migrant” invasion. If you post a comment on their website or Facebook page or any social media, you will be named.
The lead author of the article is HuffPo (Germany)’s chief editor Sebastian Matthes.
The article begins by referring to a prior HuffPo article praising Germans who welcomed the “refugees.” Soon after that article was published, HuffPo was flooded with “hateful” comments by people opposed to Germany’s migrant policy, such as “Europe did not invite the parasites,” “our women are harassed,” “kick them out,” and “Sabrina and her ilk should be sold to the ISIS, where they can enjoy the benefits of Islam wholeheartedly.”
It is also claimed that individuals who were quoted in the article received hate mail. One of them asked HuffPo to delete his name because he feared for his family’s safety.
HuffPo continues (my paraphrase of Google’s translation of the German article):

Now, we can do what we Germans have been doing for too long — we can dismiss the haters as “crazy idiots” and just look the other way. For years, we failed to recognize and confront xenophobia and racism. But no more.
The Internet has become a violent mob who act contrary to the values of our Basic Law. It is time for us to defend democracy and confront the haters by revealing their faces and names. In so doing, we are simply exercising the same freedom of expression that they espouse.

Below is a collage of their faces:
HuffPo Germany outs opponents of refugee-migrants
The rest of the HuffPo article is a long list of the names and comments made by those who oppose Germany’s generous migrant policy.
Pamela Geller points out the gravity of what HuffPo did:

If you post a comment on their site or Facebook or any social media, you will be named. The Huffington Post is a global news organization. This is putting a target on anyone’s head that refuses to go along with the leftist/Islamic war on freedom. These are the lengths the left will go to impose the sharia (Islamic law) on the unwilling.
I have long said the media is the enemy. It’s why I refer to them as the enemedia. They abdicated their role as a news gathering entity and morphed into an activist organization viciously pursuing an anti-freedom agenda.
Germans that are posting anti-refugee posts on Facebook or any other social media site, are being shut down. Facebook, Twitter, etc, and their faces and accounts are being posted. It’s a witch hunt.
[German] Chancellor Merkel is working Mark Zuckerberg to censor anti-invasion FB posts.

Germany's Ethics Council calls for legalization of incest

We really must be living in the end of days.
It isn’t enough that Germany has “bestiality brothels” and “erotic zoos,” a government advisory body is now recommending the legalization of incest.
The German Ethics Council (Deutscher Ethikrat) is an independent body of 26 academics and “persons of repute” specializing in scientific, medical, theological, ethical, social, economic and legal concerns, who are charged by the 2007 Ethics Council Act to advise the German Bundestag (national parliament) and the Federal Government on questions of ethics, society, science, medicine and law.
Lizzie Dearden reports for the UK’s The Independent that Germany’s national ethics council has called for the decriminalization and legalization of incest between siblings, after examining the case of a man, Patrick Stuebing, who had four children with his sister, Susan Karolewski. The two were not brought up together.

Patrick Stuebing and Susan Karolewski

Patrick Stuebing and Susan Karolewski

Sexual relations between siblings or between parents and their children are forbidden under section 173 of the German criminal code. Offenders can face years in prison.
But on Sept. 24, 2014, by a vote of 14 to 9, the German Ethics Council recommended section 173 be repealed, arguing that the risk of disability in children conceived by incestuous couples is not enough to warrant the law. The chairman of the council, Christiane Woopen, was among the 14 members who had voted in favor of repeal.
Members of the Ethics Council who objected to decriminalizing incest argued that it would weaken “ethically significant” family values that contribute towards personal development.
In a statement outlining its recommendations, the Ethics Council said the law against incest “put couples in a tragic situation”:
“Incest between siblings appears to be very rare in Western societies according to the available data but those affected describe how difficult their situation is in light of the threat of punishment. They feel their fundamental freedoms have been violated and are forced into secrecy or to deny their love. The Ethics Council has been told of cases where half-siblings did not grow up together and have only met in their adult lives.
The majority of the German Ethics Council is of the opinion that it is not appropriate for a criminal law to preserve a social taboo. In the case of consensual incest among adult siblings, neither the fear of negative consequences for the family, nor the possibility of the birth of children from such incestuous relationships can justify a criminal prohibition. The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination has more weight in such cases than the abstract protection of the family.
In the case of Patrick Stuebing, he was adopted at a young age and traced his birth family in his early 20s. He and his sister Susan Karolewski, who were not brought up together, met for the first time when they were aged 24 and 16 respectively. Stuebing was convicted of incest in 2008 and spent three years in prison, failing an appeal to the Federal Constitutional Court in 2008 and to the European Court of Human Rights over his rights to a family life in 2012. Karolewski was allowed to keep custody of their youngest child but the other three were taken into care. Two are disabled, although it is not known whether incest is the cause.
A spokeswoman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party, Elisabeth Winkelmeier-Becker, responded to the Ethics Council’s vote saying that the abolition of the law against incest would give out the wrong signal because “Abolishing criminal punishment against incestuous actions within a family would go completely against protecting the undisturbed development of children.”
The Ethics Council’s recommendation only covered incest between siblings and members did not recommend decriminalizing sex between parents and children.
At least not yet.
