From a reader who works for a media outlet:
I went to the Cologne rally hoping to get fresh HD video of leaders like Le Pen and Dewinter, and to be honest, I figured it would end in a riot, not begin with a riot, as it did. I and my cameraman were escorted by police through the human barricades the Left had set up to block the narrow streets down to the heurmarkt.
Once in the square, it was a big nuthin’. The event had been strangled. The media outnumbered the participants by at least five to one, maybe ten to one.
The leader of Pro-Köln told me in English that he did not believe the police sided with the Left, but had “capitulated.”
I was astounded at the numbers and fervor of the Leftists, even though I have watched the Left-Muslim alliance march in London. It was obviously some kind of major religious experience for the Leftists. Quite disturbing.
