Catastrophic flooding took place last week in several regions of western Germany. The image below is from an appeal for help for flood victims that appeared in the tabloid Bild. Note the ethnicity of the poor helpless “German” family.
Hellequin GB has translated two pieces about the floods. From PolitikStube:
Is that a German family who lost everything in the flood? BILD should be ashamed
The comments speak for themselves:
Anabel Schunke: The comments below the picture speak volumes. People want to show solidarity. But with their compatriots. They want it to be about the Germans too. And that’s legitimate. For years it was about “we” helping, that “we” had to take in refugees. Why aren’t Heinz and Hilde shown now, who may also have lost their belongings and for whom their house has always been their home? Why do German victims never have a face in the media?
Sorry, you probably achieve the opposite in this way. Of course, I feel sorry for all the victims of the catastrophe, but you usually feel more sympathy and empathy for people to whom you feel culturally close. Who else should I identify with in this country and show solidarity if we Germans are never given a face in the media? When it’s always about others?
A few more comments without attribution:
- So those in the Eifel looked different
- Are we now getting support from other countries like we helped them back then?
- I haven’t seen any of them on TV
- Perfect picture where is the German family who have lost their house and their belongings.
- All that’s missing is the rainbow
- Olaf look, there it is, the average Eifel family. Incomprehensible
- live in the disaster area and find the picture not appropriate many German families are badly affected by the flood these people should be in the first place
- Somehow something is wrong with the photo. Where are the German citizens in the picture? The flood was in Germany, wasn’t it ?!?!
- Incomprehensible! A mockery for the German families who have lost their homes! And again society is massively divided
- Because of the photo I don’t give a cent because these people deserve 0%
- Dear Bild, what does this picture have to do with us Germans? Do you not have a picture of victims who are also directly affected? That irritates me and I think it’s completely past the topic. But that also shows what you think of us, namely nothing! I am not affected myself, but I will help my compatriots. That’s what I call solidarity with compatriots, you nincompoops.
Also from PolitikStube, the spending priorities of the German government during the time of the floods:
260 million donation to WHO, but only 300 million for flood victims
Does anyone still remember the €9 billion Lufthansa, as one of many large corporations cashed in last year? In addition, more than €20 billion goes abroad as development aid every year, half a billion of which goes to the economic superpower China. And for their own citizens, in such a major catastrophe, there is a paltry three hundred million. You have to imagine this.
Berlin makes politics for everyone, just not for the well-being of its own citizens. There is always unlimited money for large corporations, foreign countries, and for their own pocket. For the citizens, as you can see from the pensions, which are now over 50% below the poverty threshold of €900, it is even difficult to find a billion in times of disaster. It shows once more that this FRG administration is not installed FOR the German people.
While Germany is drowning, Spahn donated €260 million to the WHO
July 16, 2021: Jens Spahn is back on a vaccination tour and is also giving the WHO 260 million euros from our tax money for further vaccination propaganda.
While Germany “drowns”
While people die.
While people don’t know what to do next.
While many places look like a war zone.
We have not yet heard of emergency aid of 260 million for the flood victims. There are only declarations, but as we know, it will take forever for money to arrive, if at all.
