The European migrant crisis continues to snowball at a rapid rate. In the center mass of all the chaos is Germany and Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is largely responsible for the strife that is beginning to engulf her country. Merkel’s desire to admit 1.5 million Muslim refugees in the next year is stressing out the German economy, medical services, transportation outlets and German society itself, which is growing increasingly angry at Merkel, the German government and leftists who believe that Muslims can assimilate into European society.
The situation in Germany is starting to look like the opening act in Wagner’s, Die Goetterdammerung, The Twilight of the Gods, with Merkel serving as the mad as a hatter symphony conductor.
Germany’s internal security service is warning that the government “Is importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples as well as a different societal and legal understanding.”
A German security services official also added, “Mainstream civil society is radicalizing because the majority don’t want migration and they are being forced by the political elite.”
Germany is also seeing elements of civil strife not seen in the country since the 1920’s. Yesterday, in Cologne, 3500 police officers were called in to stem violence between left-wing groups supporting Muslim immigration and an anti-Islamic, far-right group.
Slovenia’s premier recently stated that the European Union “Is weeks away from falling apart” if the bloc cannot agree on a plan to confront the sudden influx of refugees through the Balkans.
All this chaos and strife and anger leads us to ask several questions – What in the heck is going on in Angela Merkel’s mind? Is she competent to run her own country? Has she gone stark, raving mad?
A once competent, conservative and I might add, popular leader has made a decision that could very well doom her nation.
Throughout all this turmoil Angela Merkel illogically insists that refusing to take in Muslim migrants is a “danger for Europe.”
According to a leaked document from the newspaper, Bild, the German government estimates that the number of migrants invading Germany this year might reach 1.5 million. The document states that each migrant may eventually bring in eight family members. That would bring the total to perhaps 8.5 million Muslim immigrants or ten percent of Germany’s population in one fell swoop.
“And the migrants are mostly young men entering a rapidly aging country whose young male population is under 5 million. Germany’s Muslim population already approaches 5 million. The median age of Germany’s Muslim population is 34, while the median age for the overall population is 46.”
Merkel has tried to shift the blame to her Eastern European neighbors for failing to take in any migrants. But, she need look no further than a mirror to find the culprit in this fiasco.
Merkel’s logic is as twisted as a Vincent Price horror movie. She claims that by building a fence around her country, she would be creating a New Berlin Wall. But, East Germany was trying to keep people inside the country. It wasn’t stopping them from entering.
When anyone questions her about the subject, she spits out platitudes like “We can do it” and “It’s not negotiable.” Not negotiable? That sounds a little totalitarian, with a massive ego added in for flavoring.
Merkel also blasts out more nonsense such as “Europeans will lose their credibility if they don’t take Muslims. Who are we to defend Christians around the world if we say we won’t accept a Muslim or a mosque in our country?” Yes, perhaps a 1,000 Muslim refugees, but 1.5 million? Who are you kidding? And, what are you smoking in Berlin?
Merkel may now be the most hated politician in Germany in the last 100 years. Even Hitler had more support during the last days of the Third Reich. No matter how much pressure is exerted on her from her own party, the CDU, she continues to double down on the refugee policy. In fact, she now has personal control of the refugee policy after taking it away from her interior minister, who may have leaked documents to Bild.
Merkel simply refuses to admit that she’s made a horrible mistake. Instead of taking responsibility for her actions and immediately stopping the flow of refugees, she is blaming the crisis on everyone else but herself. She blames the EU. She blames Turkey. She blames her own citizens for not being open and understanding. Anyone from the opposition is a racist or a Nazi. Give me a break. Being a German patriot is not racism. Being a German patriot is not Nazism. Being a German patriot is not extremism.
The German people are beginning to wonder what side you are on Chancellor Merkel.
In another bit of sheer lunacy, Merkel says that the migrants, “Present more opportunities than risks.” Opportunities for what: terrorism, crime, civil strife, civil war?
It’s time for a visit to the local shrink in Berlin, Madame Chancellor. Modern medicine can do wonders these days.
Meanwhile, Merkel’s few remaining allies claim she deserves the Nobel Prize. Do they have a Nobel Prize for destroying your own country? Is there a Nobel Prize for inducing anarchy, violence and rape? If there is, by all means, go ahead and give it to her. No one is more deserving of a Nobel Prize for that.
In two months, Angela Merkel is accomplishing what no amount of US Army Air Corps and Royal Air Force bombs could ever do in World War II; the complete destruction of her country.
