Akif Pirinçci is a Turkish-German fiction writer who has turned to social-political criticism in his latest book. If he were not an immigrant, he would probably have been prosecuted for his scathing denunciation of Modern Multicultural Germany’s obsession with feminism, sexual perversion, and immigration. As the interviewer in the video below says, Mr. Pirinçci makes Thilo Sarrazin look like a wimp.
In the following introduction to the video, our Canadian correspondent Rembrandt Clancy provides some context to the uproar over Akif Pirinçci, whose interview on the state television network ZDF was censored and then removed from the network’s website. The translator also includes a full transcript of the subtitled interview.
Note: The translated quotes from Akif Pirinçci contain vulgarities. I have redacted out the naughtiest words, but some of the lesser solecisms remain. Readers who are offended by vulgar or suggestive language may want to skip this post.
Akif Pirinçci: “Red-Green Polluted Politics”
By Rembrandt Clancy
The purpose of this contribution is to draw to the attention of Gates of Vienna readers the successful German writer of Turkish origin, Akif Pirinçci, who has been subjected to an explicit mainstream media censorship in Germany following the publication of his first non-fiction book in late March, Deutschland von Sinnen: Der irre Kult um Frauen, Homosexuelle und Zuwanderer (“Germany out of her Senses: The Mad Cult around Women, Homosexuals and Immigrants”). The book’s subtitle is suggestive of some of the topics which the reader will find represented below, all facets of what the author calls Germany’s “Red-Green polluted politics” (Rot-Grün versiffte Politik).
Pirinçci’s notoriety in Germany is comparable to that of Thilo Sarrazin (cf. recent interview: “The Axioms of PC Madness”, Gates of Vienna) who captured the nation with his Deutschland schafft sich ab (“Germany is Abolishing Herself”).
Akif Pirinçci grew up in a poor family. “For us, an egg was a feast”, he said recently in an interview with Bild am Sonntag. In 1969 the Pirinçcis emigrated from Istanbul to the Federal Republic of Germany where his parents joined the growing population of Turkish Gastarbeiter (Guest Workers) who helped to power Germany’s post-war Wirtschaftswunder. The ten-year-old Akif completed his growing years in the beautifully green, low-mountainous region of the Eifel near the Belgian border. He showed an early interest in writing and by the age of twenty-one he published his first book. But his cat detective series, Felidae, — with Cat-Inspector Francis as the main character — won Pirinçci international renown; and perhaps without realising it at the time, the cat lover Akif Pirinçci achieved his political independence.
Felidae has been translated into English and sixteen other languages.
Akif Pirinçci on Evolution and Power
Pirinçci was unknown as a critic of the “the Left-Green dictatorship of thought and values” (Gesinnungsdiktatur) until his controversial essay, in which that phrase appears, was published on the internet portal Die Achse des Guten as “Das Schlachten hat Begonnen (English version: “The slaughter has begun”). It depicts a “creeping genocide against Germans” (Pirinçci: German Video Interview, 43.00 min.), and it created an Internet storm.
The piece was prompted by the unprovoked murder of the courageous German, Daniel Siefert, who was also a Christian. Upon his attempt to mediate a dispute, Siefert suffered fatal head injuries when he was brutally kicked to death by a pack of Turkish immigrants in the district of Kirchweyhe in Lower Saxony on 10 March 2013. English readers will find a recent summary of this bestial event and its aftermath at EuropeNews.
In “The Slaughter has Begun” Pirinçci treats the Siefert murder as one instance of a type and frames it within Darwin’s mechanistic concept of “evolution”, a “game theoretical model for explaining developments and manifestations of nature, including human behaviour”. The central vehicle of blind evolution, for Pirinçci, is the swarm of muckers (Kumpelschar), which acts according to the “evolutionary strategy of wolves”, or what Elias Canetti in his Crowds and Power (1973), calls the “increase pack” (Vermehrungsmeute — see Gates of Vienna).
For Pirinçci as for Canetti, the evolutionary function of the “swarm of muckers” or the “increase pack” is “increased chances of propagation” (Fortflanzungschancen). In Pirinçci’s version, the mechanism is blind, but effective: the men are killed and the women raped. The Germans for their part, however, suffer a kind of madness which siphons their instinct for physical survival into a substitute, socially-based self-defence against being defamed as Nazis if they resist the invasion of their country. This negative strategy is further reinforced by the displacement activity (Übersprungshandlung) of denigrating their own country and countrymen, and this in turn is complemented by a reaction formation (Freud); that is, a kind of Stockholm syndrome vis-à-vis their Muslim conqueror.
Both Pirinçci and Canetti are using metaphor to highlight what otherwise is difficult to describe satisfactorily in rational terms. Canetti depicts the primal “increase pack” as follows:
It consists of a group of men in a state of excitement whose fiercest wish is to be more [in number]. In whatever they undertake together, whether hunting or fighting, they would fare better if there were more of them.” [Canetti, Elias, Crowds and Power, Trans. Carol Stewart. New York: Continuum Publishing, 1973. p. 93].
Pirinçci combines this propagatory function of brutality and the procreative function of rape as inseparable streams of the same blind mechanism of evolution. For Canetti too, these two methods for the increase of the pack cannot be distinguished:
The full range of its [the increase pack’s] effectiveness has never been properly understood because the concept of [sexual] propagation has distorted and obscured the actual processes of increase. (English Source: Canetti, Elias, op. cit. p. 107)
Also apropos of Pirinçci’s “hunting wolves”, Hans Peter-Raddatz makes the following observation:
Furthermore, along with the growing similarity to the Islamic model, emulation of [Islamic] religious police is to be expected through the formation of Western packs, which suppress the emergence of Islamophobic nests of activity; and just to maintain the same Canetti-metaphor of the archaic herd, the packs can be expected to radicalise themselves from being the guardian of the herd to the function of bloodhound.

Akif Pirinçci: Germany, Oh Golden Elysium
Pirinçci writes the following few paragraphs against the background of German national self-hatred mentioned above. It has been observed that the elites in Germany promote the EU on the basis that it was nationalism which caused the war, and not socialism, in its contemporary mutation as National Socialism. Therefore the national state must be abandoned along with all consciousness of national identity.
Like Canetti before him in Crowds and Power (p. 173), Pirinçci introduces the image of the forest as a central characteristic of the Germanic soul. His reference to German Arminius of the Cherusci tribe impregnates the forest imagery with the very deepest significance, for Pirinçci is calling to mind the Varian Disaster, so called from the standpoint of the Romans, who lost three crack legions to Arminius in the Battle of Teutoburg Forest in the ninth century AD. Arminius, or Hermann the German, was sent to Rome as a boy, became a soldier of equestrian rank; and later, not having forgotten his patrimony, “the liberator of Germany” (Tacitus) defeated his former Roman comrades-in-arms in the Teutoburg Forest. The Varian legions, having been marched out of their accustomed space, found themselves unable to consolidate their disciplined battle formations. It was a defeat which shook Rome to her foundations. Never again would the numbers of the XVII, XVIII, and XIX legions take their place in the Roman order of battle. With the Battle of Teutoburg Forest, Germans ceased to be a mere polyglot of tribes. They entered the conscious light of history, and were destined to be the womb of the greatest culture the world has ever known.
Pirinçci’s repeated high praise of “Germanness”, also evident in the video below, is to be seen in the context of awakening Germany to her greatness. It is a “salvo” against those who are betraying Germany, if not a call to resistance. And now the pertinent paragraphs:
