Inge Steinmetz on Immigration, Dignity, and the German People

Last month we posted a confrontation between a German woman named Inge Steinmetz and a member of the Lügenpresse — a progressive journalist, in other words.

The video below shows Ms. Steinmetz’ remarks at a rally in Chemnitz, in which she discusses the dignity of the German people — or, more accurately, the violation of that dignity by the relentless cultural enrichment.

Video transcript:

00:00   “Human dignity shall be inviolable”. I received the invitation to speak at
00:05   this event here rather late and got the news even later about this theme.
00:11   I had no idea where to start. I’m used to writing spontaneously,
00:18   ideas that just occur to me, intuitively from the heart.
00:23   Usually at night, when my concerns for our country rob me of sleep.
00:27   I write short texts emphasizing a particular theme. What should I do?
00:37   Turn down the invitation? I had to think about what dignity meant.
00:43   Well, at least for me. I think the word dignity is related to respect and esteem.
00:51   I had to think of aging in dignity and grace. I love old things.
00:57   And when something ages with dignity, then it become more valuable.
01:03   I like, for example, older fabrics made from natural material which age
01:12   with dignity though time. The fading colors become even more beautiful, are
01:16   pleasant to the touch, and softer with age. This came to mind, but human dignity?
01:24   I was born in 1954, the same year as Merkel. It was a time when things
01:33   weren’t going so well for us as Germans. My mother bought me a doll’s pram
01:37   for one mark from the junk handler who would come by once in a while. I still
01:43   have it, but I couldn’t tell you why. I can’t really remember my early childhood.
01:49   I know that we, we were five children at home and for Christmas we received
01:56   a paper plate with nuts and an apple dwarf. We also received a handmade
02:00   Norwegian sweater, that my mother could make so well.
02:06   And Santa made sure we received some kind of toy.
02:12   I only had one doll, but when I look at the little black and white photographs
02:20   with those jagged edges, then I see a happy child. I was born in a
02:24   good time period, when everything continued to get better and nicer.
02:29   We lost our parents too early. We were all around 20 years old and
02:36   still had to care for our youngest sister, it became clear to me we had lived
02:40   in a kind of golden cage. I had a protected childhood, could choose the career I
02:47   wanted and marry the man I chose. I can’t remember when I first saw the film
02:59   “Desert Flower” which is based on a true story. I was around 50 years old.
03:07   I remember it well. How horrified I was, that Waris, a 14-year-old Muslim girl from
03:15   Somalia was to be forcibly married to an old man who paid for her.
03:25   I remember, watching and sobbing, when as a grown woman and
03:32   famous fashion model, she explained how she was brutally circumcised as a little girl.
03:41   If I remember well, until that point in time I had never heard of child marriages,
03:48   forced marriages or female genital mutilation. The world just fell apart for me,
03:56   the idea that something like this actually exists, and I freely admit I was very happy
04:03   that this kind of world was far, far, away. It wasn’t a part of Germany.
04:10   Then 2015 came. The borders were left open for anyone who could write
04:19   the word asylum, or just said it. With these people came child marriages,
04:24   which meant forced marriages and female genital mutilation, too.
04:31   The unimaginable for me or my intact world has now arrived Germany.
04:38   Now this little woman that concentrated on her own family became politically interested.
04:47   I could not, no, I will not sit back and watch something like this becoming accepted,
04:53   tolerated or even deemed as legal from our courts.
05:02   Even ex-federal justice minister [Heiko] Maas said that there should be exceptional
05:08   cases for child marriages. Especially when children are born into such relationships.
05:17   He justifies his statement by saying that these girls would have no right to financial
05:22   support because their marriages would not be recognized as legal. What a farce!
05:29   These girls could sue for financial support from their parents, which would act as a
05:38   deterrent for parents selling their children into forced marriages.
05:44   Evil is removed by the root and shouldn’t be given any nourishment, Mr. Maas.
05:49   A court in Bamberg has now officially recognized child marriages.
05:54   With this kind of judgement, the sharia has its foot in the door in Germany.
06:01   How is it possible in Germany that pedophiles and men who marry their
06:08   first, second, third or fourth child bride aren’t charge with child abuse?
06:15   The daily abuse, the rape of a child is now recognized as legal.
06:23   And what about the dignity of these children? Where is their right to a
06:29   protected childhood? An education? The freedom to choose a partner?
06:36   In Germany, you must be 18 years old to legally get a tattoo, and 16 years old with
06:43   the expressed permission of the parents. For circumcised boys, a procedure that has
06:48   enormous effects on the body, the German court system is starting to take action.
06:57   The serious consequences caused by these procedures done on the affected children
07:05   are criticised by various associations of doctors and the Child Protection
07:09   group MOGIS. All of this is happening under the smokescreen of religious freedom.
07:16   Shouldn’t our law be protecting the weakest in our society, the children?
07:23   Our country has now been taken over by things I had no clue about.
07:30   This includes the rape of grown men, yes, now we have that too.
07:37   Sex with animals, mass rapes…all of this which was unknown to me and far,
07:46   far away —now belongs to Germany.
07:50   When I read daily about what’s happening in this country, well OK, not in the
07:54   mainstream media because you can’t find it, because that doesn’t fit the narrative.
07:58   What I see, is that the dignity of the people is being used like a doormat.
08:04   I never had anything to do with “Women’s Lib”, and now appear to be the greatest
08:11   champion of women’s rights. All those people, especially women, who just
08:15   a couple months ago were screaming “me too” everywhere and were supporting
08:19   actresses who after decades came forward with their alleged sexual assault
08:23   stories, by men they knew and could have easily reported. Those are the same people
08:38   who couldn’t care less about the dignity of these women and children.
08:43   Those forced into marriage and who are abused in these so-called marriages.
08:49   What also does not matter to them is the safety of women who are sexually
08:55   assaulted on the streets of Germany on a daily basis by foreign men,
08:59   from unknown countries and of unknown identity — or should I say identities.
09:09   Apparently the dignity of older people is also worthless. Those who have worked
09:15   hard their entire lives and still can’t live on those hard-earned pensions.
09:21   Oh, and what about the dignity of those who are still working every day and can’t
09:27   find affordable places to live anymore? The longer I think about human dignity
09:32   the greater the abyss widens. We have a wonderful constitution, from the first article
09:40   about the human dignity that is allegedly inviolable to the last article, number 146,
09:52   which says these basic laws are valid for all German people and shall cease the day
10:02   on which a constitution freely adopted by the German people takes effect.
10:11   Until that day, the only way our constitution makes sense is when it is strictly applied.
10:18   With no loopholes opened in the name of tolerance for the intolerant.
10:26   We should not let our constitution be undermined by politicians for whom the right
10:30   to a dignified life doesn’t matter, unless it is their own lives — because they
10:37   live well and gladly. Thank you for listening.

  1. This lady tells it like it is. Sanctimonious politicians preach tolerance and ignore the real-world consequences of tolerance for the intolerant. Their hypocrisy stinks.

    • I’m curious. In what way does it seem to “disappear”? Is it usually the case that you can ‘see’ your comment waiting for approval but this time you couldn’t?

      There is only a six-minute gap between your first comment and this query…that’s standard operating procedure here (in fact, far shorter if we get busy) so I’m wondering if something has changed in what you see or don’t see while waiting.

      • Once you used to see the comment as if looked like it was posted, though it was noted in italics that it was in moderation . Sometimes
        when refreshed the comment would with in minutes then would turn up with the italic “in moderation” gone, so then we knew it was approved and now actually posted for all to see. 🙂

        This problem occurred at the same time Jihadwatch also had a major problem with comments not appearing at all.
        When rectified it did not memorize automatically the part where name and address.
        Like JW this has also continued on GOV.

        Over a month a go, now the whole comment just disappears, until Baron or Dymphna give it the ok.
        Initially it gave much uncertainty of what happened.
        Once that is figured then one has to be patient.

        The only loss then is not seeing your comment in full as if it was posted, even if waiting on moderation, as sometimes one can nest another comment, may be explaining a bit more, or clarifying or adding an edit.

        I think it was just a change or update that wordpress did, that caused the initial problems, and then it is now the way of the system.
        In the beginning I just hoped that security was not compromised, or perhaps it may have been changed to increase security.

        It is possible that B&D may notice different email addresses or names, as now when we click through on the mini-tab to put in the information, easy to unwittingly click on the wrong part.

        Thanks to B&D, the wise words, patience, experience and considerable thought put into these posts, bringing much information, history, with a wide ranging context.

      • After clicking the ‘post comment’ button, the page refreshes but there’s no acknowledgement a comment has been made – I suppose it sort of ‘vanishes’, until approved by GoV and posted.
        The times between posting a comment and GoV publishing it can vary (not a criticism, merely an observation), perhaps this along with no sign a comment has actually been posted, has lead to some posters thinking their comments have ‘vanished’.
        I think I’m right in saying previously there was a comment will be posted when and if approved notice but I could be imagining things…
