again a turn à la Merkel is knocking at the door
(the third or fourth?)
- The punishment at the ballot box in the state elections: Cum grano
and more people in this country are seeing, with growing unease, what
kind of policy Merkel is making, there are included representatives of
the established parties, but also newly added forces as well as bourgeois
circles, and they see it increasingly more critical. Among others is included
the deal, Merkel hasmade with Turkey, for what they actually did not have
legitimacy, since neither the own people nor any State of the EU Alliance
has been interviewed or consulted beforehand, at least nothing is known
about the latter. It is striking in this connection that the far majority
of current refugee flows from Turkey comes from Turkish refugee camps,
namely the those going exclusively via Greece. The main chain link for
this is Merkel’s policy. It is also not surprising that resistance
evolved first in Hungary and then in Austria, not to mention countries
such as Poland and the Baltic States altogether. This is not the first
time in history that such resistance against Muslim immigration flows
have been mainly manifested in these countries. Merkel’s current
policy is neither good for Europe nor good for her own country.
One can not readily compare this movement of flight - as it has sometimes
been tried - to the movement of refugees after the Second World War, from
the states of the so-called Eastern bloc, especially Poland, the Baltic
States and the Soviet Union, or even equate it, as it happens today. Those
were mostly Germans, who fled from the former eastern territories, then
occupied due to the new borders of the Soviet Union or Poland, and these
refugees were in a sense part of the own German population, of the own
culture, although this culture had to be subject to criticism with every
reason. But it's still a not insignificant difference from what is currently
Next one must also ask this: Whom you are actually boosting, when everyone
who raises a concern in this regard,is stamped immediately as an alleged
racists? I think that thus the political rights and actual racists themselves
are boosted, and people who do not want to see, by this are driven into
their arms. And precisely people with such concerns that many people in
this country have rightly at present against Merkel's policies, a good
number of them has now voted for the right-wing AfD because the latter
grasps such issues in a not un-hazardous manner and, to say it with caution,
does not sepatate itself sufficiently from the rightists.
What's going on here at present, is a very considerable extortion. If
a well-known presenter in TV only is introducing in a talk show the somewhat
provocative question, how it is supposed to look here in the future when
the whole of the refugees with their offspring all will be here then,
whether then they all will be Germans who just simply are named Mohammed,
and then the she faces a rebuke, and is asked that she had to refrain,
kindly, from such (allegedly) racist remarks. One cannot play more into
the hands of the rights. This is by no means out of the world to face
such questions, in view of the demographic trends in this country. If
you go on the road in certain German cities, then you know exactly what
is meant. That's already the case here. Add to this that not a few of
them, on top of everything, have a dual citizenship and Mr Erdogan believes
to be able to intervene here by mobilizing them even for his own election
campaign. What extent of Turkish intervention one has to endure here,
anyway? The question that arises here is: who benefits from such a policy?
And there is more than one candidate, who is eligible here, also internationally.
But here, downright, the big stick of unjustified defamation of being
racist gets waved, in this way just playing into the hands of them. That
is what is achieved with such a thing, not the opposite, because such
a criticism as mentioned above certainly has its place. It has nothing
to do with racism. But this is of course not fitting into pseudo-left
and green heads, and not only in this respect the election results in
Baden-Württemberg could be understand rather as a disaster than as
election results in three states: Cum grano salis
These three election results in three states, including a weighty one,
in Baden-Württemberg, are seen, not without reason as an incision,
especially when you look at the results of the AFD. That such more or
less openly right-wing party immediately reached 15 percent of the vote
in Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate, in Saxony-Anhalt even
reached almost 25 percent of the vote, should make us think. This fact
is especially not a vote of confidence in the current government. On the
contrary, it is a clear indication that a considerable part of the population
of this country rejects the current policy of the Federal Government,
especially rejects A. Merkel’s policy in the refugee issue. Her
policy, here to appear, on the one hand, as the do-gooder and to override
all others, but at the same time, in the background, to fiddle with the
Turkish Prime Minister and President, without legitimacy - this policy
mainly was punished in the elections, and that is perfectly legitimate.
More than that, this is actually very pleasing, although initially it
only is about three state elections, although the "granum salis",
the success of AfD, for lack of real alternative regrettably could not
be avoided. Perhaps we should at times reflect, how this could go different
in the future.
But Mrs Merkel may also consider how her next u-turn could look, already
the third, without too much embarrassing herself, but this should be difficult
now. And if the planned deal with Turkey ist added, provided they can
get away with it, it's already the fourth. Really embarrassing. But better
than a social catastrophe.
The next economic crisis will surely come, and adequate housing at affordable
prices is neither available in Berlin nor in other major cities of the
country, the exact opposite is the case and the speculation in land and
property flourishes everywhere. How under these conditions a decent accommodation
for many people from elsewhere to be managed, how „we make it“,
that's a fairy tale, Mrs Merkel! This is absolutely not conducive for
the integration, quite the opposite. Ghettos like at the Tempelhof airport,
where it has already come to dispute between members of different religions
and ethnic groups, due to the appalling conditions there, which is not
surprising when you lock up some 1,000 people together in a former airport,
with security guard at the door and in the halls. Berlin gets not even
finished a new airport! Have you ever noticed, Mrs. Merkel? Berlin will
not make it, not in decades. How is there to assume that they "will
make it", in the case of other things.Such naivety borders almost
to the criminal, at least if you imagine the consequences.
It is striking that almost all other countries in the EU are well aware
of the problems for their countries, caused by such an onrush of refugees,
and they draw the consequences for themdelvesf: not this way! In Germany,
however, this does not work, strangely enough. Why? It should be interesting,
to answer this question.
Greece in a sense is an exception, because the local government, under
the guise of the refugee crisis, operates for postponing their bankruptcy.
The same also applies to Turkey. Merkel, however, threatens to destroy,
by means of her policy, not only her own country, but the the whole of
Europe. And who will get on the gravy train? Also there are already candidates,
for example Mr Putin. His land is in fact also going to break, in economic
terms anyway, and he is imagining already, how he then will be using Europe
to get the renovation, in his way. Which brings us to the Katharina theme.
However, the question is whether they get that equation right. Luckily
enough, there is still a lot of resistance.
to the state elections
The infiltration of
Islam in Europe goes to the account of Angela Merkel, too. And also this
meets resistance, and that is a good thing. So far, the current election
results (the state elections) are not to be regretted, although it is
a shame for the progressive forces that they have not contributed, at
least not in terms of elections. The vote of all three state elections
must therefore be respected and the right conclusions must be drawn.
be assessed as very positive that the perversion is rejected by a significant
percentage of the population. Also a Mr. Kretschmann, as the green "father
of his country", cannot hide this fact with his current earning.
When it comes to these themes he rather keeps quite reserved. One should
consider, however, if one thinks now to form a coalition with this gentleman,
that one although perhaps will not have to accept these things but, more
or less, nevertheless will have to tolerate them at least. Especially
the CDU should have to think about it, which has, up to now, not yet taken
such an extreme position on these issues, as the Greens do iOne
thing is required to be supplemented: Economically this AfD has no concept.
For the most advanced productive forces they do not really strive for,
and otherwise it is not much to see of it, how it intends to resolve the
economic problems, the contradictions. One cannot expect much more than
what the conservative bourgeois parties are also pushing forward partly.
They do not address the social contradictions, they do not address the
exploitation, they do not address the supremacy of the (financial) capitalists.
All this is left out. Accordingly, their operating radius in socio-economic
terms is extremely limited.
contradictions, however, will worsen. And then one will see what kind
of forces these people will be able to fall back on. The statement of
Frauke Petry shortly after the election speaks plaintext in this regard:
The AFD claims to be a party of social peace, she proclaimed. One may
rightly assume that the rights almost certainly will then be those who
are to enforce this "social peace" for the bourgeoisie. From
the economic crisis of 2008 one has still extricated. But the next one
comes along with certainty, and this one in all likelihood will be much
broader and larger than the last. Thus, one should not underestimate,
nor overestimate, the recent so-called success of AfD, one should take
it under the microscope, especially in this latter respect.
more far-sighted than the revisionists. That has to be borne in any case
as a lesson from history. And insofar as the election results of these
three state elections should rather give cause for concern, and to think
about how to draw the right practical consequences from it.
