Lebanese clans in Germany

Gunnar Beck is a German lawyer and a member of the European Parliament for AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany).

Video transcript:

00:00   The most recent economic forecast of the European Commission
00:04   should shake us all awake. Four member states are now officially in a recession.
00:10   Those four are the largest per capita net contributors
00:13   to the EU budget: Germany, Austria, Sweden and Denmark.
00:17   In contrast to the US, the EU has not recovered from the Corona crisis,
00:23   and that’s also because, as a result of our nonsensical climate policy,
00:27   it has been harder hit by rising energy and food prices
00:31   than anywhere else. Germany has been especially affected,
00:35   where growth is collapsing, and salaries and pensions can’t keep up with galloping inflation.
00:40   The European Central Bank ignores its mandate
00:43   and just accepts inflation. Meanwhile, Germany is paying net
00:47   more than 40 percent of the entire EU budget. What are the Germans getting for that?
00:52   The highest inflation in over 70 years, economic stagnation,
00:56   and the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine,
00:59   which did not create stagflation, but gives it wings.
01:03   Over 50 years ago, Lebanon was the pearl of the Middle East.
01:08   Then that country took in millions of unqualified refugees,
01:13   inflation rose, the per capita gross domestic product
01:17   today is lower than it was in 1970.
01:20   Germany is well on its way to becoming the Lebanon of Central Europe.
01:25   Von der Leyen likes to speak about the EU’s moon landing.
01:29   Maybe you will find your new tax colony there.
