Migrant-welcoming liberals have turned Germany into Bedlam


IN 2010 the book Deutschland schafft sich ab (‘Germany Abolishes Itself‘) was published. Its author Thilo Sarrazin, a member of the Social Democratic Party, argued that Muslim immigration had been a net negative to the Federal Republic and that, left unchecked, Germany would in time become Islamised and much the worse off.

Many Germans agreed with his thesis, with the book selling more than 1.5million copies. Naturally, the contents were decried by Establishment figures and their useful idiots in media, who, it can be presumed, did not read the book but nevertheless dutifully and performatively expressed their cretinous outrage.

I witnessed this first-hand as an undergraduate while studying for a year in Berlin in 2011-12. Like a fish out of water in Europe’s most horrifically liberal metropolis, I enjoyed watching the Germans tear themselves into a frenzy whenever a fact or opinion threatened their carefully constructed (aka head-in-the-sand) worldview.

In Germany, to speak out against progressive shibboleths is more dangerous than it is in Blighty. The radical left there are more thuggish and smooth-brained: dealing with the legacy of the Third Reich, German leftists believe that to rectify a violent, immoral history they must clad themselves in black and beat up people in the streets who disagree with them.

No one ever claimed they were geniuses.

Sarrazin subsequently published other books which provoked screeches of outrage from the usual quarters, including The New Moral Terror: On the limits of freedom of expression in Germany (2014) and Hostile Takeover: How Islam hinders progress and threatens society (2018). In an era of disastrously stifling consensus, Mutti Merkel reigning until 2020, he was often a lone voice lamenting Germany’s descent into a lawless, third-world dump.

What he foresaw, many now see daily with alarming clarity. To me, as a fairly regular visitor, the inexorable degradation of the country is evident. Travel to any village, town or city and you will see the marks of its insane policies. Once-quiet towns have become the dumping ground for the developing world’s detritus, litter and mess strewn everywhere. Quaint spa towns once full of visiting retirees are now teeming with dark-skinned young men, loitering around as headscarved women wander past.

It is a morally beaten country. Each week brings fresh reports of heinous crimes committed across the land. What was once shocking – Cologne’s New Year’s Eve sexual assaults in 2015-16, for example – has become commonplace. Scanning the news cursorily the other day, I found these articles:

  • In Hamburg, a 15-year-old girl was gang-raped by migrants. She was initially assaulted by one group who invited others to take part via a messaging app. The perpetrators are from ‘Germany’, Armenia, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Montenegro. A woman who criticised one of the barbarians was later charged with a hate crime, spending a night in the cells, in contrast to all but one of the rapists who escaped any punishment.
  • A 20-year-old was beaten in the spa town of Bad Oeynhausen so severely that he died soon after. He was attacked by a group of ten immigrants, the killer later revealed to hail from Syria.
  • In Gera, a gang of Syrians and Afghans filmed themselves violently assaulting a German boy in broad daylight.
  • An ‘African-looking’ man firebombed a shop run by Arabs in Solingen, leading to severe injuries.

All of the above took place within an incredibly short time, offering a mere snapshot of what is happening in Germany. Let us recall that it was only a month ago when a German policeman aged 29 was slaughtered by a radical Muslim in Mannheim, and a week later an AfD politician was stabbed in the same city.

There is very little surprise, then, that the right-wing AfD is doing well in the polls in Germany. Despite being handicapped by the legacy of historical guilt, not all Germans are entirely blind to the devastation being wreaked on their nation. What was once one of the safest, most pleasant places on earth has been reduced to a violence-ridden Bedlam by its catastrophically traitorous politicians.

Fourteen years on from Sarrazin’s aptly titled book, Germany is still very much abolishing itself in front of our eyes. Some may be tempted to enjoy a moment of Schadenfreude, given the relentlessness of the German establishment’s pious pontificating. But we should not confuse the ordinary people with their government. Hans and Fritz of the Bierkeller don’t want to see Germany disappear, hence the sparks of resistance in the form of the AfD. Instead, it is their elite – just as ours – who would happily see their nation erased from the map of the world.  

At such moments we must remember that it is us, the ordinary people, who have to stick together. After all, I want to see a French France, a German Germany and a British Britain.

To modify the slogan of a German of another era: Patriots of the world, unite!
