Germans Abolish Themselves

A couple of weeks ago German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier caused a stir by saying that there are no native Germans — that is, there some people who have been living in Germany for a long time, and others who have been there just a little while, but there is no meaningful distinction between the two groups.

Here’s an excerpt from the Breitbart report about the occasion:

German President Declares There Are ‘No Native Germans, We Are a Nation of Immigrants’

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has declared Germany “is a nation of immigrants and will remain so”, asserting: “There are no half or whole Germans, no biological or ‘new’ Germans”.

Speaking at Berlin’s Bellevue Palace, where a small group of people with Turkish heritage had been invited to share their views on immigration, integration, and xenophobia in Europe, the German president strongly denounced “exclusion of and discrimination against people with foreign roots”.

When asked her own opinion about what the president said, Chancellor Angela Merkel voiced strong agreement with him, as you can see in the clip below. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Video transcript:

00:00   Merkel: and really does highly respect the freedom of the press.
00:04   The Federal President deliberately made a statement against “everyday racism”
00:09   this week when invited migrants for coffee and said very clearly:
00:13   ”There are no first or second class citizens and no biological Germans,
00:17   No Passport Germans” (German born vs naturalized citizens)
00:21   Why do not you make such clear statements?
00:23   Merkel: Well, I may not have said it in the last three days, but I have said to the young
00:28   people with a migrant background, many times, I am their Chancellor
00:32   as much as I am the Chancellor for those who have lived here for generations.
00:38   And in the Ozil debate? That’s a debate that has now taken off recently.
00:42   Merkel: Yes, I am … I have a clear opinion. One can disagree, whether it was
00:46   was wrong or right for Ozil (national soccer player) to pose with Erdogan in a photo
00:50   but the discussion and the way it was discussed afterwards
00:54   parts of that — I didn’t like that one bit. That’s where I am focused. What I mean is
00:58   we also have to concern ourselves about the feelings of those who are affected.
01:03   If someone with an immigrant background, whether it’s Özil or somebody else, says
01:07   ”I do not feel properly treated in society”, then at least I have to take
01:13   that seriously and talk about it. Recently, I took part in a discussion with Turkish
01:18   immigrants and a girl wearing a headscarf — who just graduated from high school —
01:25   she said, “when I walk across the Friedrichstrasse, no one believes that I am
01:29   an A student in Math — I see that in the eyes.” I think you have to take this seriously.
01:33   because I do not experience this and that’s why I found the words…
01:40   Of course, it is not my task to praise the federal president or to evaluate, but I found
01:45   these words important and found his invitation for coffee a great idea.
01:51   In moments like these you can say it’s good to have a federal president who does that.

  1. They never invite women who have been assaulted or people who have lost a friend or family member to the invaders to meet for coffee do they? This is so over the top Orwellian you have to marvel at how they still sell it to even 1% of the population.

  2. This is exactly what the last Labour party government was telling us during their 13 years of left wing tyranny.

    These people, regardless of the country, are disgusting. These collectivists, these destroyers these liars. As Jesus said, they are of the synagogue of satan and I don’t think Jesus was referring to just the Pharisee and Sadducee Jews, rather it applies to anyone who spreads lies and deceit and destruction who are of the synagogue of satan.

  3. Madam Merkel, try explain to Arabs they are not real Arabs. Explain to Ozil, born in Germany with parents from Turkey, he is not Turkish.

  4. As a fan of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy I am reminded of this quote about the Babel fish which can be placed in the ear to translate, whenever a western politician makes another senseless statement: “Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mind-bogglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as the final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.
    The argument goes something like this: “I refuse to prove that I exist,'” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.”
    “But,” says Man, “The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. QED.”
    “Oh dear,” says God, “I hadn’t thought of that,” and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.
    “Oh, that was easy,” says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing.”

  5. Church records tell me that my family has been living in this area for almost 400 years. Maybe even longer, but older records were lost during the 30 Years War (1618-1648). So I suppose, I may quite safely call myself a native German. If Frank-Walter Steinmeier decides not to be a native German, because native Germans do not exist, he is welcome to leave and take Angela Merkel with him. Preferably to another planet. What’s the planet called where the Klingons live? That would be a good choice.

    • I’ll bet there are lots of mini-Merkels who could perform just as well as she did. And I’ll bet most of them were raised in East Germany, just as she was.

  6. These claims that native Germans or indigenous English or ethnic Swedes don’t exist, is part of the strategy of the Left to destroy national identity where it occurs in Europe. It is necessary to destroy the culture and national identity of individual European countries to remove the objection and resistance to the population replacement plans of the globalists. It’s actually a deeply racist strategy, but of course only racism against people of colour matters. Imagine the uproar if a politician in the US suggested today there were no people who could claim to be native American. But if the German president wants to talk about fake nations, he could start with the Palestinians. There he would be on safe ground.

  7. Merkel: “We also have to concern ourselves about the feelings of those who are affected. If someone from an immigrant background feels I do not feel properly treated in society”
    What about the thousands of “Germans” feelings who are affected by the policies that Frau Merkel created. It’s so obvious that they couldn’t give one damn about how they feel. Her only concern is how the immigrants feel. She could not make it any clearer.
    A decade ago many thought that the “Coudenhove-Kalergi plan” was pure fantasy.
    When you see the horrors of what is happening in Europe you can clearly see it’s pure reality.

  8. Well, I’m no fan of Germany. From 1870-1945 they’ve turned this world upside down. If Merkel is trying to prevent another war by dumbing down the population I’m fine with that.

    • Are you insinuating that the German people would wage war if Ms. Merkel wasn’t there? […].

      I am fully aware of the damage that warfare produced, but “turned the world upside down”? A deeper look into the origins of wars and into foreign policy might help here. History written by the winners is a standard. Hardly anybody knows that France had planned revenge war on Germany in the mid 19th century to compensate for the defeat of Napoleon. Nota bene that after the Vienna Congress, France got out of its defeat unharmed (doctrine of oblivion in treaties) and I could go on for hours…

    • add.
      and the Sykes-Picot convention for the partition of the Middle-East was signed without the participation of Germany. Just an anecdote…

    • So, you think Germans didn’t learn their lesson? You prefer to see Europe under Islam?

      What will happen when Islam will control and have access to military capabilities in Europe? What country will be the first to receive some German, French or British ballistic nukes?
