Merkel refugee double down

I sat here yesterday in disbelief after examining the transcript from German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s recent press conference in Berlin. OK, I guess I wasn’t completely shocked when I heard her double down on refugees, but it was still kinda stunning the way Merkel basically told people who had concerns to fuck right off. Even though I think the migrant flood she helped let into Europe has set the continent on a perilous path, I do have to give her some slight credit for standing up in the face of the fury.

Whichever way her gamble turns out (and I’m betting poorly), Merkel will be the one who has to own the entire thing

“Today, as in the past, I am convinced that we can do it — to live up to our historic task, which is a historic test in the age of globalization,” she said, in an attempt to reassure the nation after three recent violent attacks, two of them linked to the Islamic State. “We can do this.” 

Ms. Merkel, who had been on vacation in her summer home in the lake district north of Berlin, returned to the capital to give her annual summer news conference and laid out a nine-point plan that she said would strike the right balance between security and freedom. 

She deplored two recent attacks by men who had claimed allegiance to the Islamic State: an ax and knife attack in Würzburg by a 17-year-old refugee who said he was from Afghanistan, and a suicide bombing in Ansbach by a 27-year-old Syrian who had sought asylum in Germany. The two attacks “mock the country that took them in,” the chancellor said.

“All of this puts a great test before us,” the chancellor said of the attacks in Germany and elsewhere in Europe. “It tests our way of life, our understanding of freedom and democracy.”…

Ms. Merkel emphasized that “we are not in a war or in a fight with Islam.” She added, “We fight against terrorism, also Islamic terrorism.”… 

Ms. Merkel has come under pressure, at home and from European partners, for her willingness to allow hundreds of thousands of migrants to enter the country without being properly screened by security officials. Concern about who may have entered Germany among the 1.1 million migrants and refugees who crossed the border last year has been heightened after the attacks.

I actually agree with Merkel on some things. I don’t believe we should close all immigration, even from Muslim countries. I wrote about my feelings on the subject in the aftermath of the Bataclan terrorist attack. But letting in “refugees” from war-torn parts of the globe without proper screening is madness and Germany is paying the price as we speak. It’s not just any old part of the globe, either. This is overwhelmingly the place where the terrorism we face is coming from. Even if it wasn’t, letting people into your country without screening them is madness on the face of it. We shouldn’t cancel immigration from anywhere, because as corny as it sometimes sounds, I don’t think that’s who we are. Still, for fuck’s sake, we have to be smart about this shit.

Right now, we’re being anything but smart. And fools like Merkel continue to lead the parade of idiocy.

If you think things are going to get better anytime soon, I’ve got a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. By the way, I mentioned how letting unscreened people into your country was insanity in the last paragraph. Well, the United States has been doing that for a very long time. Just wait until an ISIS jihadi who came here from Mexico completes an attack on American soil. The outrage will be at a fever pitch. Porous borders threaten many Western nations and we are only now beginning to receive the bloody receipts.

I really do hope I’m wrong and things improve markedly without massive bloodshed. I fear I am all too right, though…

(Here’s the 2010 quote from Merkel about German multiculturalism having failed, along with news on protests organized in reaction to Merkel’s press conference.)

  1. Nobody learns from history it seems. Don’t piss off the Germans.

    In all seriousness this will be Merkel’s last term in power. I really hope that things don’t escalate to a civil war. Any decent person in her position should’ve resigned and admitted their mistakes.

      1. Yeah shit has got to be about to kick loose over there, the longer it takes before it happens the worse it’s going to be.

        1. Germany’s political leaders / media should have been honest with their citizens from the start. Instead they chose to crack down on the ‘hate speech’ of people distressed at the crime wave, and engage in cover-ups. Now, even *if* they made a good-faith effort to include the population in their solutions, there will be no trust. I would not want to be in Germany right now.

          1. No I wouldn’t want to be there either, if you’ve ever seen Death Wish 3 that’s basically a good model of what Germany and the other virtue signalling nations within the EU are generally building themselves into and also how the situation will probably resolve itself in the end at this rate. The native population will reach a breaking point and they’ll just start killing the “migrants” by the dozen.

        2. the more the social pendulum is pushed one way, the harder it will swing back the other way (unlike a normal pendulum)

      1. When it comes to governing nations i’m a full misogynist. It’s bad enough with male leaders, but barren women like Merkel and others manages to make it even worse.

        In muh country there is ton of gov propaganda on how there isn’t enough female politicians, and basically we the people are voting wrong (not exactly in this words of course). Disgusting chutzpah.

        1. my opinion on the matter is that a countries leader should be someone out to do the best for the whole country not one demographic or another, not lobbyists, but rather everyone even if the opposition attempts to use moral posturing or emotional blackmail the leader should be able to call that shit out and tell off those who use it.

        2. I think criticism of female politicians is a fair point to make. Whilst I think both genders should have equal opportunities in politics (remember I said opportunities, NOT quotas), the problem is that I think a female politician is more likely to be someone who is pro-woman and anti-men.

          Basically the women with the pro-feminist, misandrist, and axe-to-grind agenda are the ones who should never ever be given a chance to take charge of things. Like the female Labour MP in the UK, I forgot what her name is but she publicly humiliated and laughed at a man when he brought up serious men’s issues.

          Also, why should the gender of a person matter to being a politician? As long as that person is qualified and has the best interests of the people that should be all that’s needed. Doesn’t matter what genitals the person has between his/her legs.

          Therefore the fact that SJWs/feminists want more female politicians highly suggests that they want bias. And this bias is of course discrimination, sexism and oppression AGAINST men, and making everything beneficial for women. It’s already happened in the West with the law, divorce, family and crime courts.

  2. “because as corny as it sometimes sounds, I don’t think that’s who we are. Still, for fuck’s sake, we have to be smart about this shit.”

    It sounds corny because it is corny. Well, that’s certainly not who your ancestors where. I’ll take the racists of the past who where open to immigration of white christians of good character only(this would cause problems down the line, but not as big a culture clash like today). Sounds awful to our modern sensibilities, true, but it is better than what we have now.

  3. She’s bought fully into the progressive obsession of multiculturalism and “diversity for the sake of diversity” (aka left wing racism) and has no choice but to double down, despite opening the west up to a culture that hates diversity (the irony) and loathes Western values to the point of being willing to kill themselves and others. The “refugees” are coming from the most backwards parts of the world – these are people whose cultural traditions STILL SPEAK ABOUT THE FUCKING CRUSADES LIKE THEY HAPPENED RECENTLY! Most people don’t know that. That is how backwards most of the Middle East is.

    1. They and their cuck allies will also try to tell you the crusades were a sudden and inexplicable act of aggression by Christendom against Islam….when the reality is that Muslims been raiding Europe and basically everything else within reach practically from the moment they first united under a then living and then ruling from Mecca Muhammad.

      That and it solved the problem of how to reduce Europe’s local knight population. Knights were good for one thing and one thing only and they were going to do that one damned thing no matter how hard they had to stretch for an excuse.
