GERMANY: THOUSANDS of Citizens March Against Merkel's Migrants


#1

Cottbus, Germany.

Following a spate of knife attacks committed by teenage Syrians, two well attended marches have taken place in Cottbus, protesting against the islamification of Germany and the problems caused by Mutti Merkel's open border policies. The anti-migrant protests naturally had a counter from the left, but in a slightly surprising turn of events, the left could barely rally a crowd a quarter of the size of their opponents.

Bearing placards stating Cottbus for all and suggesting that to be concerned about migrant crime is to have a toxic brain doesn't appear to have been a message that gained much support. Mohammed Scharr organized the pro-migrant rally.

"After the attack [a knife attack committed by a Syrian on a German] people have got it into their heads that we are criminals, that we carry knives all the time. That we fight. It's not true."

The rally featured many flags from Middle Eastern countries, as well as the ubiquitous -though slightly puzzling- gay pride rainbow flags. Around 600 pro-migrant protesters were met by a counter-march of well over 2000 citizens demanding Merkel Muss Weg- Merkel has to go. Naturally, these people are tarred by the media as being little more than ignorant racists.

"We want the asylum seekers to respect us."

The population of refugees in Cottbus has doubled in two years to 8500. With a population of 100,000, the city of Cottbus on the Polish-German border has experienced a seismic cultural change. Hence the clashes. Hence the protests.

Steffen Kubitzki of the AfD said

"It seems there are too many. It seems that the situation in Cottbus has been underestimated. The first thing to do is to close the borders, to stop taking in refugees for now, and to sort things out here."

While Kubitzki doesn't go into details on what exactly needs to be sorted out, one doesn't have to look far for answers. According to SWR Actuell, in the region of Baden-Wurttemberg 42,443 crimes (excluding crimes of false entry to the country) were committed by 25,379 refugee suspects. For context, in that region in 2016 there were 90,000 refugees in temporary housing in the city, about 1.5% of the regional population. If these crime rates are replicated similiarly in Cottbus it is easy to see why having 8.5% of the population being refugee in origin is of concern to the locals.

"I'm scared to go out alone now."

"We are much more concerned about the assaults on bodily harm, ie the use of force by asylum seekers,"

So said Baden-Wurttemberg State Criminal Office President Ralf Michelfelder. The number of homicidal offenses involving at least one refugee increased by 95.5 percent to 7,670 cases. About 60 percent of these offenses were done in accommodation, but also about 40 percent in public. Furthermore, asylum seekers are strikingly represented in drug-related offenses and simple thefts. In the meantime, there is almost no crime field in which refugees would not be identified as suspects, according to Michelfelder.

The marches in Cottbus come from ideologically opposed positions.

Mohammed Scharr no doubt means well with his desire to show that not all 15-year-old refugees will stab you in the face. Unfortunately, he is arguing the wrong position- it is not the case that people think that all refugees in Germany are criminals. Indeed, genuine refugees are statistically less likely to commit crimes as it would invalidate their claims. Still, with over a quarter of a million applications for asylum in Germany from people claiming to Syrian in 2016, the issue has always been one of volume and the irreconcilable differences between Islamic cultures and the secular West.

For millennia human societies have granted asylum to foreigners fleeing persecution. Humans are generally kind like that. Even so, the rights of asylum in antiquity never came with the presumption that the refugee would become a favored citizen, or that such numbers of refugees would be admitted. As we see from the paltry repatriation efforts from the Germans to expel people who have gained entry to the country under false pretenses, it is clear that the majority of the more than three million asylum seekers who entered the country in the past three years are there to stay forever. It is this demographic shattering population movement that the people of Cottbus march against.

Two Syrian refugees wrote a letter of apology following the recent crimes by their compatriots.

"We are very sorry that two of our compatriots in Cottbus have attacked people. We apologize and would like to make it clear that this behavior is not right with us either. We want to tell you that we are here to live in peace. There is war in our homeland and we want to lead a safe and peaceful life.

Dear Syrians, dear refugees, we are guests here, we must accept the rules and have respect. Germany has welcomed us while our neighboring countries have closed the doors. Here we get everything we need for a new life. Please do not forget that and behave yourself!"

Unfortunately, the well-meaning actions of a few migrants will not outweigh the impact of increased crime, ghettoization and the creeping suspicion among Germans that their country is lost forever. Even former pro-migrant NGO volunteers are leaving Germany for the relative safety of Poland.

Rebecca Sommer, who formed a charity to help refugees in 2012.

"I thought that [their] medieval vision would change over time- but after seeing these situations repeat themselves and observe what was going on around me, a volunteer, I had to recognize that in the case of Muslim refugees, they have grown up with totally different values, they have been brainwashed since childhood and are indoctrinated by Islam and have absolutely no intention of embracing our values. Worse still, they look at us, the infidels, with disdain and arrogance... We have a huge problem with the left and the Greens [for whom] there is no 'German culture'"

The mainstream media in Germany reported that Cottbus has problems thanks to the German people in Cottbus being far-right extremists. The following video report goes so far as to allege the march is xenophobic, that the spate of violence in Cottbus was in fact started by locals, and that news reporters were assaulted by protestors.

Lügenpresse, genau.

The countermarch was in fact a broad cross-section of German society, as seen from the following video. Few flags were flown beside the occasional Bundesflagge. I see no overt Nazis here, though apparently one man was arrested for repeatedly giving the Seig Heil salute.

From the speeches given to the march, one speaker said

"He who can see no difference between his own and a stranger is immunodeficient. He won’t resist any threat. On July 18th one of our protesters in Cottbus wrote on a banner “Do I lock my house because I hate the people outside? —No! I lock it because I love the people inside. They are important to me and I want to protect them. For that reason, doors have locks and countries have borders.” My dear friends, this is the bottom line: loving your own and defending them has nothing to do with xenophobia."

With both the media and the German government against them, the Cottbus protestors have a gargantuan task ahead of them to spread their message.

Hope can be taken that the protests in Cottbus were so mismatched- the pro-border security march was far larger than that of Team Taharrush Gamea. This suggests that the left is, if not in full retreat on the issue, at least having a difficult time misrepresenting the blatantly obvious. The media cannot maintain the pretense that the 8500 migrants in Cottbus are angels while insinuating that 2000 Germans are literal Nazis while thousands of people are taking to the streets in denial of these lies.

Something will have to give.

Merkel: miserable nulliparous wretch. I hope there’s more like this.

Nice to see pictures supposedly portraying Germans portraying actual Germans for a change.

A Country in utter turmoil thanks to the short sighted PC leader , there are lessons to be learned !

In 2012 Rebecca Sommer founded the refugee aid association Arbeitsgruppe Flucht + Menschen-Rechte (AG F+M) [Working Group Asylum + Human Rights]. At the end of 2015, this artist, photographer and journalist and documentary maker applauded Angela Merkel’s decision to open German’s borders to the “refugees” who had been blocked in Hungary, despite the vacuum effect this would create. “At that time I wanted to help everyone and truly believed that all these people were fleeing hell and were in a state of complete distress,” the German activist explained in an article published by the conservative Polish weekly Do Rzeczy on 15 January, discussing how she woke up to reality.

In 2015, her NGO had almost 300 volunteers who were giving German courses to the new arrivals.

…”I thought their medieval view was going to change with time…but after having seen these situations occur repeatedly and observing what was happening around me, as a volunteer, I have had to recognise that the Muslim refugees have grown up with values that are totally different, they have undergone brainwashing from childhood on and are indoctrinated by Islam and absolutely do not intend to adopt our values. Worse, they regard we infidels with disdain and arrogance.”

“It was a jarring perception when I noticed that these people I had helped, who were eating, drinking, dancing and laughing with me, who didn’t pray, who didn’t go to the mosque, who didn’t respect Ramadan, who made fun of religion and deeply religious people, called me ‘the stupid German whore’ when they were eating my food and were in my garden.”

…Rebecca Sommer says she is not an isolated case, that many other volunteers also came ultimately to have the same perception and that there are now far fewer volunteers ready to work with the new arrivals today in Germany. She also acknowledges that, through their numbers, these Muslim immigrants pose a threat to the German way of life, and that this will get worse with family reunification.
She also told the Polish weekly magazine Do Rzeczy that she personally knows Germans who are getting ready to emigrate to Poland because they had have enough, and she added: “If Poland and Hungary do not give in on this question, you could become countries that some Germans and French will flee to. You could become islands of stability in Europe.”

Islands of stability but also democracy because Rebecca Sommer also notes that democracy no longer really exists in Germany….When the human rights activists wanted to denounce forced conversions to Islam in Indonesia, her account was blocked.

This Berlin woman no longer dares to go out on her own on New Year’s Eve and she has already been attacked five times by men speaking Arabic!

She thinks it is already too late for Germany and she plans to emigrate for her retirement. Political Islam is present everywhere, including in the government, in political parties, in the police and schools. With family reunification, millions of additional Muslim immigrants are going to come. In the German capital where she lives, entire districts are already dominated by the Muslim community which forms a parallel society.

Seems like the modus of progressives. Whether consciously or unconsciously work diligently to affect the space around them with values they little understand and then one day, they wake up and look around saying “This isn’t a very pleasant environment that I have worked to create” and rather than admit their errors and try to reverse the damage of their failed ideologically driven value system, they just upstakes and move to a place not damaged by their presences. Once there, the do the exact same things again. This of course plays into the communist / globallist need to continually expand its authoritarian structure all over the world. Progressives are lemmings…


#6

She should be forced to remain in Germany and further be forced to live in migrant no-go zones. Let her reap what she has sown - ficki ficki.


#7

This is what happens when you want to deal with your heart instead of your brain ! Which reminds me of all the talk of having a heart with illegals and the dems wanting more from Turd-World Countries ! Our population has double since 1960 and NOT for the better !!! :roll_eyes:


#8

These are of course far left wing government sanctioned talking points that are designed to smear anyone who is who is even slightly right of center. It’s probably helpful to the cause because it is so alienating.


#9

It’s about time these cucks came to their senses. Too little too late though. They should have been doing this as soon as those thots with refugees welcome signs started lining the street.


#10

It is shameful what Merkel has done to the Germany. What history will say for her depends on whether the German people are still relative in the future. Sadly like the dinosaurs ,I don’t see a good out come…I can only hope they do survive and prosper and show Merkel for who she is!


#11

The CDU/ SPD. coalition and the Leftist supporters in the press are ruining a great country. As of now with no political solution apparent, the German Judicial System should prosecute these thugs and deport their Asses.
It’s long overdue for Deutschland to break the chains of WW2 and become a political force in Europe.People shouldn’t wonder why the AFD won around 13% of the votes in the election. Germany needs a Real Leader like President Trump in charge.
Lets oust the Hausfrau!!!


#12

Feminists in Sweden have been retreating too. White supremacy is to blame.


#13

I think any sane person living in Germany right now is trying to figure out how to immigrate to Poland.


#14

Kebabs must be removed. I think Iraq has an ‘open border policy’ due to ISIS, under which Merkel would be granted asylum. She would make a lovely jihadi bride in the caliphate.


#15

Germany could use 4yrs of AFD govt


#16

And as soon as she and all of her Cucksucker friends get there, they will almost immediately begin howling and screeching for Poland’s Deathversity.


#17

The AfD (and Die Linke, the ex-Communists) are much like the GOP was during the Obama years. It’s easy to be against everything and pick up all the “protest” votes when you have no responsibility.

The real question will be how many Germans voted for AfD in order to “send a message” to the major parties versus how many actually think that letting crazy immigrant-haters run things is the best course of action.


#18

What have they said that’s crazy, specifically? Genuine question.


#19

The AFD isn’t perfect and I don’t support all their ideas . They recognize that Merkels let any immigrant in that has a pulse and can breathe is a failure and has to be changed.
The AFD is the only party willing to change immigration policy for the better as un PC that it is .
