The resemblance between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President-Anointed Hillary Clinton grows more striking every day. Their characteristics — both politically and personal — are remarkably similar. And according to Nash Montana, Mrs. Merkel recently reinforced the resemblance with her use of a certain tic of verbal expression:
This is Angela Merkel’s “What difference at this point does it make” moment. When she says, “Who cares whether the recent terrorists came before or after September 4th to Germany,” she doesn’t really say “who cares”; she uses the word “EGAL”, which is a milder kind of a way to say that you don’t give a s***. For instance, “Es ist mir egal” means “I don’t care.”
I have a pet peeve with the word “EGAL”
Here’s a brief video excerpt from Mrs. Merkel’s press conference where she uses the relevant phrase. Many thanks to Nash Montana for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
The following article from Junge Freiheit, also translated by Nash Montana, discusses the chancellor’s cavalier attitude towards her country and the German electorate:
Merkel doesn’t care about the consequences of her politics
The land is divided, its citizens deeply rattled? “We can do that!” Sexual attacks on women in swimming pools and festivals? “We can do that!” Terror attacks by Islamists in Germany? “We can do that!” Growing frustration and disgruntlement towards politics among the citizens? “We can do that!”
On Thursday Angela Merkel held a federal press conference in regards to her refugee politics and its consequences. But whoever expected even just one single self-critical word of the chancellor was disappointed. The CDU leader justified herself, saying that she only acted according to her own best knowledge and conscience, and she stands by her decisions. Admittedly the asylum politics which she is responsible for is a “huge litmus test”, and she never said that it would be easy, either. But she still is convinced that “we can do that!”
Merkel ignores the problems
But who is “we”? Not a word from Merkel about that. Not a word to the many women who on Silvester Night in Cologne and elsewhere were victimized by sexual attacks — exactly by those who Merkel so eagerly brought into the country with her welcome politics of open borders and friendly faces.
Not a word to the citizens who have had to deal with the consequences of this asylum storm for a full year now. Not a word to the communities that have been completely overwhelmed with financing and housing of these asylum seekers. Not a word for the police who — thanks to unchecked immigration — are at the breaking point. Not a word to the soup kitchens [“Tafeln”, free food, groceries for poor and low income people; really more than soup kitchens, more like free grocery stores — translator] who have to ration food because of fierce fighting during distribution. Not a word about the tear in the social fabric that Merkel’s refugee politics has caused, which not only splits the country, but also splits families and friends. Not a word about the fact that her decisions have led Germany and Europe into the abyss.
She is hovering above the “we”
Certainly it is rare that politicians admit error. And even rarer that they suffer the consequences of those errors. When one asks a chancellor if he/she made a wrong decision, one might as well ask a tobacco lobbyist if smoking is dangerous to one’s health.
But Angela Merkel is different altogether. She doesn’t even begin to try to sell something wrong as right. She also doesn’t want to divert attention from possible dangers or play them down. She simply doesn’t care [in the text, the word “egal” is used, which basically means “doesn’t give a s***”]. The chancellor has proven this to us today, with a smile on her face. Angela Merkel has long been hovering above her labored “we”. She has lost contact with the presently existing Germany in the real world.
And just what Merkel thinks of the consequences of her actions she had made very clear late last summer at the conference of the union fractions of the Bundestag: “I don’t care [again, “egal”= “I don’t give a s***” — translator] if I am to blame for the influx of refugees. Now they’re here.”
|2:33||All that we owe the victims of these bloody deeds|
|2:36||those who had to give their lives,|
|2:39||those who brought away severe injuries to body and soul,|
|2:43||and of course we owe that to their relatives.|
|2:47||All that we also owe to everyone’s security,|
|2:50||and we also owe it to all the many innocent refugees|
|2:55||who also have to deal with the fact that in the case of the terrorists|
|2:59||of Würzburg and Ansbach, the two men who carried out these attacks,|
|3:03||that they came as refugees to Germany.|
|3:06||Two men therefore who sought protection in our country,|
|3:10||or maybe they just pretended to seek protection,|
|3:13||but which now in any case wanted to spread fear, death and horror|
|3:16||and have spread it.|
|3:20||That two men, who came to us as refugees, are responsible|
|3:23||for the deeds in Würzburg and Ansbach,|
|3:27||it mocks the country that had taken them in,|
|3:31||and I want to add, thereby it additionally completely doesn’t matter|
|3:35||if — along with the many refugees — these refugees came here to our country|
|3:40||before or after the 4th September of last year.|
|3:44||It mocks the helpers, the volunteers,|
|3:47||who so kindly were caring for the refugees,|
|3:50||and it mocks all the other refugees|
|3:53||who really need help to get away from violence and war,|
|3:56||who want to live peacefully in a world|
|3:59||that is completely foreign to them,|
|4:02||after they have lost everything somewhere else.
