Long-time readers are familiar with the German banker Thilo Sarrazin, who caused such a huge controversy back in 2010 by writing a book (Deutschland schafft sich ab or “Germany abolishes itself”) about the destruction of the German nation by Multiculturalism, and especially by Muslim immigration. Mr. Sarrazin was denounced, vilified, labeled a “Nazi”, and eventually forced to resign from his job as a board member of the Bundesbank. Although the political class disavowed him totally, opinion polls showed that the vast majority of ordinary Germans agreed with him, and his book sold very well.
Last Saturday Trykkefrihedsselskabet (the Danish Free Press Society) presented an award to Thilo Sarrazin in Copenhagen for his courageous stance. Many thanks to Henrik Ræder Clausen for the footage, and to Vlad Tepes for uploading this excerpt from Mr. Sarrazin’s speech, in which he gives a brief explanation (in English) of the Thirteen Points of Political Correctness:
Steen has a report on the event (in Danish), including extensive photographs and the full video.

The brand new political party emerging right now in Germany, the “Alternative für Deutschland”, will be founded officially on 14th of April, but has already more than 8,000 members, this party is waiting for Mr. Sarrazin to share their No.1 goal:
EURO EXIT NOW!
27% “can imagine to vote for the new party, and 7% are convinced to vote for them.
The German establishment tries to push this new party into the NAZI corner already.
I am sure, this time this will not work anymore.
The national elections will take place in September.
Even if you read the reader´s comments in the mainstream media in Germany you will see a change now: The Germans trust into their politically correct leadership starts to disappear. The huns will become very angry once more soon 😉
Actually we asked Thilo exactly this question: Would he join AfD?
He responded that while he likes the initiative, it takes a long time to build up a new party, and at his age he prefers to stay with the Social Democrats.
Obviously, he does share the goal of leaving the €, which he wrote a book about.
Unfortunately Thilo IS right. It does take a very long time to establish a new political party and most fail. History tells (the UK Labour Party founded by Keir Hardy may be the exception which proves the rule) that only revolution creates rapid change.
UKIP has taken 20 years from being dismissed as loonies and fruitcakes to achieve 27% of popular support. I don’t think Europe will survive another 20 years, it will have collapsed into anarchy long before then.

The reason why Germans agree with him is because he’s absolutely 100 percent right about the immigrants, particularly the Muslims. They do worse at school. Girls in kindergarten are told they are whores and sluts by Turkish boys (even though they were born in Germany, their parents refuse to bring them up in western ways- Turks are not pro west at all) because they do not were headscarves. And everything else he’s said about Turks and Arabs is true. I live in holland and here we have the same problems for many many years now. Not all Turks are like this but definitely 80 to 90 percent. I hope he becomes chancellor.
