The following clip from German state television aired on September 17, a week before the earthquake at the polls. It’s nearly unheard of that the congenital and cultural deficiencies of the “refugees” could be discussed so frankly on TV, and it’s especially remarkable given the political climate that prevailed in the weeks before the general election.
Many thanks to Nash Montana for translating the video and text below.
Notes on the video from PolitikStube:
It’s almost unbelievable that such clear words are being broadcast at PHOENIX and ZDF: The publicist Ulrich Reitz (FOCUS) and the psychiatrist Christian Peter Dogs use very bold and definite language about why the established parties have failed in their assessment of the refugee crisis.
Thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
Here’s a detailed article about the discussion on ZDF, from Epoch Times:
Psychiatrist on ZDF: Today’s Migrants cannot be integrated — Politicians are ignoring the fears and concerns of citizens
Politicians aren’t taking the concerns of the citizens seriously — that’s what the psychiatrist Christian Dogs says on a ZDF show. Everyone that criticizes German asylum policies is immediately being labeled as “sick” and “right-wing”. All the while the migrants are a “ticking time bomb in our country” with their “insane potential for violence”, says the psychiatrist.
The saying, “We are not afraid!” after each terror attack is nothing more than an empty phrase, says Christian Peter Dogs. He was the leading physician at the Panorama Clinic in Scheidegg for years, and is now the leading Physician at the Max-Grundig Clinic.
On September 16th, 2017, he spoke on Peter Hahne’s talk show on the topic “The power of fear — exploitation or reality?” His dialog partner was the journalist Ulrich Reitz, former chief editor of the news magazine “FOCUS”.
Dogs: Politics pander to citizens without taking them seriously
Right at the beginning of the show Dogs criticized current politicians who merely mollify people with the slogan “We are not afraid!”, instead of taking them seriously.
They are trying to influence the people with slogans, the journalist Reitz explains. That way nobody would inquire any further about the politicians’ solutions for these problems.
“When a terror attack happens in one of the European capitals, politicians stand there mostly clueless, and that is their big fear. Politicians themselves are afraid,” Reitz emphasizes.
For years problem have been suppressed, the psychiatrist said critically. People who would question and scrutinize the refugee policies of the government, were labeled “sick” and “right-wing”. Not taking the people seriously is the biggest mistake of the government, says Dogs.
Reitz: Politicians are afraid, but they also abuse this fear
Politicians aren’t just afraid themselves, but they also abuse this fear, Reitz asserted. “When Frau Merkel presents herself as the inherent embodiment of security, then this is an exact reflex to the fact that people are very unsettled and uncertain. And Frau Merkel says, ‘I am security.’ End of story. She is the biggest profiteer of fear politics,” says the journalist.
“The crazy thing with our society is that we are all afraid, but we’re all acting like we’re not.” (Dr. Christian Peter Dogs, MD)
The people feel betrayed by politicians
According to Dogs, many people come to him for treatment due to current phenomena. These people suffer from severe anxiety disorders; some are even unable to even leave their houses because they feel threatened. “And they feel completely betrayed by politicians, because they say they’ll do something but nobody is acting,” the psychiatrist says.
Furthermore, it is completely incomprehensible to Dogs, that politicians who — like Merkel — have been in positions of power for many years, say things like “One should do something”. Who but they should/could do anything at all? he asks.
Mass immigration: Migrants do not understand our values — they are not integrable.
Furthermore, mass immigration itself is rather questionable, because young men come to Germany with an “insane amount of potential for violence,” says Dogs.
It’s commonly accepted in contemporary psychology that the personality of a human being is formed by the age of 20, or as early as 12 years old, the Psychiatrist explains. Character, temperament and personality are therefore hardly changeable after that.
They are people with entirely different sets of values. “They are a ticking time bomb that we have here, because they don’t even understand our values, and we can’t teach our values to them, either,” Dogs emphasizes. Therapy for refugees won’t help or change much, either, and “we have to accept that,” he added.
Therefore the demands for integration classes are sheer naiveté:
“You can’t integrate them. There is nothing to integrate in most areas. You can learn the language, but you can’t learn the cultural sphere, not the religiosity, not the conviction and especially not the potential for violence.” Dr. Peter Dogs, MD)
“There are a lot of people coming here who have a crazy aggressive potential, because they grew up in wars. They have learned to fight, and they don’t even know what it means to live harmoniously. To try and change that is lunacy.”

|0:07||…because they then — nobody reacts to it, does anything,|
|0:10||but I mean, it’s not like Merkel just entered the stage,|
|0:13||she had time for sixteen years, and I just think it’s insane|
|0:16||[Dr. Christian Peter Dogs, MD “Politicians should take concerns seriously”]
when the politicians say, ‘Yeah, one should really do something’,
|0:19||but who? If anyone it’s them! —Good, I mean you could generally say that,|
|0:22||Schulz, too, is totally apolitical,|
|0:25||and he just started all brand new, and Lindner, and the Greens, too,|
|0:28||it’s as if they never had to do nothing with anything.|
|0:31||Isn’t that also a disappointment to the people|
|0:34||who want to… I mean, it makes it really easy for populists?|
|0:41||So now you have to tell me, are the established parties not populist? [Ulrich Reitz, publicist]|
|0:44||They do that, they do that… —Fine we just heard that in the […], the populist…|
|0:47||This is simply not a phenomenon where one can say|
|0:50||that only the AfD is doing it, or the Left party,|
|0:53||this is widespread, and everybody tries to gain from fear.|
|0:56||The question remains whether it’s pandering,|
|0:59||whether it’s a simulation of false facts|
|1:02||and wrong solutions,|
|1:05||or if, if, how one approaches that.|
|1:08||I mean, the complaints made by teachers are increasing,|
|1:11||that they just can’t manage to integrate refugees any longer|
|1:14||at their schools, and these are all consequential damages.|
|1:17||We… we, we have strains on the federal as well as the state level|
|1:20||that keep increasing more and more,|
|1:23||and when we warned about that two years ago,|
|1:26||that this would happen, one was really stigmatized,|
|1:29||because nobody wanted to hear this, but it was entirely predictable.|
|1:32||And the people, they possess a normal,|
|1:35||sophisticated ability to reason, they know that,|
|1:38||that if you let in so many people that bring with them|
|1:41||a culture that is hard to integrate,|
|1:44||with a religion that is at best shady,|
|1:47||that there will then be problems. Big problems.|
|1:50||And so, from the top down, politicians send the signal,|
|1:53||we can handle that,|
|1:56||and we here at the bottom have to solve that, but we can’t…|
|1:59||Yes, and then arrive all these young men, from these… war zones,|
|2:02||with that religion on their backs as well…|
|2:05||And that is when you’ll see this wonderful phenomenon that nobody|
|2:08||really wants to acknowledge, but we researchers of course see,|
|2:11||which is that the personality of a human being|
|2:14||is fully developed by the time they reach 20 years of age, starting at around 12,|
|2:17||meaning character, temperament, personality, are basically developed,|
|2:20||and they can hardly be changed anymore, which means then that these young people|
|2:23||coming here they bring with them an insane amount of potential for violence,|
|2:26||they come here with a completely different set of values,|
|2:29||and that is a ticking time bomb that we have here, because they don’t even|
|2:32||understand our values, and we can’t teach them these anymore.|
|2:35||And even if we could achieve meaning with therapists, which is something|
|2:38||I always question anyway, when we have to do these refugee therapies,|
|2:41||we are just not going to achieve a whole lot, and we should accept that.|
|2:44||But would you then say…|
|2:47||[…] —Yes exactly!|
|2:50||And Claudia Roth sat here, she said we’re doing it all,|
|2:53||integration, and we’ll do classes and all,|
|2:56||this is naiveté. —Yes of course. You can’t…|
|2:59||You can’t, there’s nothing to integrate in that regard,|
|3:02||you can learn the language, but not the cultural sphere,|
|3:05||the religiosity, not the conviction,|
|3:08||and especially not the potential for violence. There are people coming here|
|3:11||who carry with them an insane amount of potential for violence,|
|3:14||because they grew up during wars, they have learned to fight, they never learned|
|3:17||to live harmoniously, and to try and change that is lunacy.
