I am Worthless — I am German

The essay below is essentially a follow-up to previous essays by the German commentator Anabel Schunke (see three previous translations of her pieces here, here, and here .

I am worthless.

By Anabel Schunke

Worthless in a human sense. In reference to my origin. My worldview. My simple opinion. Because I am German. Completely without a politically correct talkshow-worthy migration background and without religion that supposedly constantly discriminates and I therefore get discriminated against.

But not worthless with respect to my money. Because the Left’s dream of Multiculturalism needs to be financed, after all. I am good enough for that, but I am fed up with only being good enough when my tax money is demanded for those who allegedly enrich us. They who then often not only aren’t grateful towards us, but treat us as second-class citizens, like idiots who can be fleeced. They who do not enrich us, but themselves.

We are Germans.

Just saying this sentence out loud in our current climate of political correctness sounds incredibly weird. Our opinion, if it isn’t multiculti, does not count. People who could express this opinion for people like me either aren’t heard at all or are dissed for being right-wing populists. It’s almost like we don’t want a voice speaking up for us anymore, and if we do, then only curious odd coots so that we can turn them into objects of ridicule. We’re not supposed to think that we are many. That it is OK that so many think that way, and that there are more sensible, reasonable people among us Germans than not. Instead we have to be lectured. By the hijab activists Aiman Mazyek and Lamya Kador. We have to be told what our obligation to provide is, and what racist a******s we really are.

And I am woman.

…Whose freedom and liberty fell victim to the refugee crisis first. It is not always obvious, a lot of times it’s extremely subtle. For instance, when I got pepper spray after the events in Cologne, or when other women tell me how they avoid certain clothes or places. There are many of us who go into inner emigration because we just have been raised to be loving and nice. And because we are insecure about our political opinion. Because we want to please and be liked, and because politics is so horribly polarizing. But when is the moment reached when one has to strike back and fight for one’s own rights, which have been taken for granted for so long? When do I have to leave the political commonplace and take a position? Now. Exactly now. The selling out of our freedom has long ago started, and we are the first that have been affected by this. We’re practically the seismograph for everything that is still coming at us. But I don’t want to be a seismograph, and I don’t want and I never wanted to be nice and loving and please everybody. I also want to be worth something.

I am a cop.

Nobody cares when I put myself out there day in and day out. When I get pounded with bottles and rocks by the Antifa, it’s the police who are accused of brutality. When our red-green political leadership budget-cut the police down to nothing, we are the ones who are blamed when not enough of us are present in Cologne. We experience the consequences of Merkel’s refugee politics every single day at point-blank range. We are the ones who are completely powerless against the African drug dealers because here in Germany it’s easier to hold a parking offender accountable than a criminal. We have to catch escaped terror suspects we never encountered before Merkel let them into the country. We don’t get a federal cross for merit for our work. That medal is handed out to the Syrians that caught him [reference to the El-Bakr case]. Because even with the federal cross for merit, it’s not about the actual work anymore, but about the “good deed” behind it. What counts is the message of multicultural enrichment even as our daily experiences tell us something completely different.

I am a teacher.

In my class I have to include not only handicapped children but refugees as well. I have to do justice to everyone and I can’t, because the personnel and the money are just not there. In the end we all suffer, but most of all the students who do well and can’t be supported. But achievement is now frowned upon, anyway. Better to have them all the same, even if it means keeping them dumb. Germany can afford it. Besides education we have so many other resources, after all. And when I feel burned out, well, I’ll just have to cancel the entire class for a day.

I am a physician. I am a judge. I am an entrepreneur. I am a Hartz-IV recipient and single mother. I am a human who writes against all this insanity, and I am ostracized for it and threatened. In the end the only thing that counts is the worthy cause to which we have to submit and for which we have to pay. Financially, culturally, and in human capital.

But I don’t want to pay for anything anymore that does not enrich me. For people who laugh at me for my naiveté and good will. I do not want to have to be considerate any longer of the cultural and religious sensitivities of Muslims. Not in the cafeteria. Not at school. Instead I want to finally be treated with greater consideration. To be able to criticize without being called a racist. The majority and not the minority to be heard. That I, too, will be worth something again.

How long can you treat people this way until they fight back? Is it really we who write against all of this who are the hatemongers and the agitators, or is it those in the media and politics who make people feel like they’re nobody, and eventually drive them to turn right?

You may decide public opinion, but the public you are not. And me, I am not worthless.

  1. Dear Ms. Schunke, You have a personal destiny that places you at a much higher level that the scribblers, commentators…academics..and politicians who hector you and other worthwhile German citizens in order to feed on your labor and essential good will for an agenda that is meant to destroy Germany as a Nation. Forget the Golden Rule they try to guilt trip you with. Remember that even though it is demanded that you be a Good Samaratin ; you might follow in the good samaritans footsteps. by providing some aid to the so called unfortunates. (not military age men)..NOT INVITING THEM INTO YOUR HOME.

    Gather like-minded decent people together and refuse to have anything to do (socially or financially…as much as possible) with any person or agency that welcomes the military age cockroaches into your country. Ghandi set an example (passive resistance)….do not even look at these bugs that walk your streets.
    Travel with like minded strong German men who carry long and heavy automotive tools (to repair their cars) as they accompany you.

    I have many German friends who are industrious and energetic, and admire your country. We have a grifter called Hillary trying to ruin our lives (after the questionable origin man now in charge).

    You have a Communist Physics professor in a position of power. She should be in a Strudel Shop in Berlin….not in a leadership position. Avoid as much and as many of the swine who are damaging your country ….and travel with strong men who can push the belligerent mu[slims] who block the sidewalks out of your way.

    • I fully sympathise with Anabel Schunke. The question for like-minded people is how to fight back against PC tyranny, short of armed revolt which we might well lose. Francis m reps offers sage advice above. I would recommend in addition that all of us withdraw our money from European banks and keep it under the mattress. The banks are on the edge and if we topple them the regime will fall too. A good option for native Germans is to relocate to Austria where you can legally acquire guns and ammunition.

  2. Ms. Schunke should rather learn how to shoot. With writing articles, even clever ones like this, the west european problem is not solveable anymore.

    • Knowing how to shoot does not preclude Anabel from writing these articles. She knows how to shoot. And shoot she does well, from what she has just recently told me.

  3. “Until Angela is [seen to suffer greatly, and in public] Germany will not move forward.”

    Hypothesis: The bracketed wording is the translation of an obscenity, and is more precise than the obscenity.

  4. Minutely she represents what collectively Jews felt — and much worse than that — at the hands of Germans, Poles, Russians, etc. for the last millennium. Thankfully, for Jews the situation is now finally on the up and up until, soon enough, Moshiach’s light shines forth in full blast.

    What’s clear when you scan the horizon, the political landscape of the world today, you see that evil is being drawn out of the entire complex, eventually to be pitted against the forces of good, and evil will then be once and for all vanquished.

    • Messianic hopes never die. For me, they are a kind of regression to an earlier form of morality in which hopes are pinned on a “savior”…not different in kind from Shia Islam’s belief in the 12th imam…

      I am a theist but one who believes our theology must needs be congruent with wherever our cosmology leads. The deeply humorous paradoxes of sub-atomic reality not only lead us to laughter, they also pull us inevitably toward process; i.e., the only constant in ‘reality’ is inconstancy – a fluid dance far beyond mere words to describe the process of our becoming…

      In the final analysis,to my mind there is probably no Messiah on the horizon of our lifetime, but the same impulse that drives us to look for One Who Saves is no doubt resident in the part of the brain where dwells hope. So I offer you, Frank, the words of (by coincidence) two women who lived hundreds of years apart. The first describes Hope, the second gives us the felt experience.

      It was in the period of chaos and deep cultural fragmentation during/following the Black Death that Julian of Norwich wrote this often-repeated affirmation:

      All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well…

      [This idea sings if you repeat it…]

      Then, some centuries later, in America’s New England, another reclusive woman wrote a much longer contemplation on the same theme:

      ‘Hope’ is the thing with feathers—
      That perches in the soul—
      And sings the tune without the words—
      And never stops—at all—

      And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
      And sore must be the storm—
      That could abash the little Bird
      That kept so many warm—

      I’ve heard it in the chillest land—
      And on the strangest Sea—
      Yet, never, in Extremity,
      It asked a crumb—of Me.

      Evil is always with us…and always a threat…it cannot be vanquished entirely, merely contained and guarded against.

      But I think you know that?

  5. Anabel Schunke is brilliant as well as beautiful. I have given an analysis previously of why the “dumb blonde” myth is unlikely to be prevalent, and in fact, beauty is likely to be correlated with brains.

    Her writing has a very German trait of being excessively concerned with what others say.

    Our opinion, if it isn’t multiculti, does not count. People who could express this opinion for people like me either aren’t heard at all or are dissed for being right-wing populists.

    You will never get anywhere with this attitude. The nattering crowd is just a bunch of cockroaches, and it matters not in the least, in a moral sense, what they say or think. They may hold practical power, and that is always a reality…but to actually worry about their opinions in a moral sense is amazingly self-defeating.

    I’d like to see a German who expresses his opinion without looking over his shoulder. Do you remember the Russian refuseniks from the Soviet era? One of their characteristics is, they just wouldn’t shut up. There was no compromise, no concession, and no concern with the approval of their oppressors.


  6. Perhaps, the german people can learn from their own Past.

    It seems Germans need but a true leader, however the leftists immediately use the spectre of Hitler to denigrate the german people’s attempts to act in their own defense.

    Perhaps instead, a group dedicated to the spirit of Arminius, the hero who threw out the romans, and kept Germany safe, could inspire new leaders.

    Perhaps, now is the time for a Germanic woman, after the spirit of Boudica or Joan of Arc, can also inspire the stalwart nature of the Germanic peoples to rise against invasion and subjugation.

    I believe, that you Ms Schunke have this within you. A speech, A call, A declaration and true german men will flock to your side. Your words are moving, your cause is true, your bravery is on display, and these cannot be purchased.

    As a native American, living in the US, I can tell you the price of surrender even in defeat, is great. Yet I see in your essay, I am worthless, the same lament of every subjugated people. And there is only one way to free yourself and your children.

    ONLY by acting in your own defense, will you save your people now.
