The above graphic refers to the incident in Dresden last week when two culture-enrichers pushed a local Dresdener onto the tracks at a railway station when the train was coming (see the translated articles here and here).
The German authorities are convinced that they only need to improve their educational outreach to the “refugees”, to help the newcomers understand which behaviors are considered unacceptable in Germany. To that end, they keep producing new signs with pictograms instructing the “New Germans” about what they must not do — don’t grope the girls, don’t urinate in the flowerpots, don’t defecate in the showers, etc.
So the pictogram above is designed to be placed on the pillars along the platform at the railway station in Dresden. (Yes, it’s satire — but only just barely.)
Egri Nök provided the title for this post. It means “Pushing unbelievers forbidden!” But she notes that schubsen, which means “push” or “shove”, has a nuanced overtone that minimizes the action, making it more like “nudge”. As she says, “This is this obnoxious downplaying word the media use all the time.”
