Big Brother at the ARD

The following video is not interesting in and of itself, but it is indicative of the way German state-sponsored television directs the political opinions of its viewers into acceptable channels.

Nash Montana, who translated the clip for subtitling, includes this introduction

This is an excerpt from a long-running series called “Lindenstrasse” from the German public broadcaster ARD. The show is extremely liberal, and this clip (from episode #1567 entitled “Flight”, February 7, 2016) is an excellent example of how the ARD manipulates its viewership — which has been in the millions for this show every Sunday night since 1985.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:


0:05   “Hey you know, that new AfD woman,
0:08   that Beatrix von Storch, you know?”
0:11   “Yes, that’s the one that wants to keep refugees away from Germany by force of arms.”
0:14   “Yes exactly that one. Did you know that her grandfather
0:17   was finance minister for Hitler for years?”
0:20   “Oh come on, that’s such an old story.”
0:23   “But it is so indicative, isn’t it?”
0:26   “Philip, I am against guilt by association. Why was what her grandfather did her fault?”
0:29   “Yeah, but, well — can one at least point it out, or not?”

  1. Does that mean that any member of Die Linke or CDU who has a nazi ancestor should also be questioned on what they do?
    Ohh, they support censorship, they did have a nazi grandfather don’t you know…
    Ohh, they want to prosecute people for having the wrong political beliefs, they did have a nazi grandfather don’t you know…

    • Yes.
      “Gay is a term that primarily refers to a homosexual person or the trait of being homosexual. The term was originally used to mean carefree, happy…”

      It`s a naive, leftist multi-whatsoever […] bingo.
