Germany Deletes Itself

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party (the CDU, Christian Democrats, along with its Bavarian sister the CSU) is polling very badly at the moment. It may be unable to form a government after the next general election, but what most people outside of Germany don’t realize is that it will most likely be replaced by the Greens, rather than the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany).

Hellequin GB has translated two articles about the antics of the Greens in Germany. The translator includes this introductory note:

The way I see it, the Greens, along with their goblin (Annalena Baerbock) are already chafing at the bit at the starting line to get into the next Federal Government and the Chancellery. If you can believe the polls of the opinion-making institutes or in the “hurray!” reports of the System Propaganda Media Machine, the Watermelons are already on course for government. A government or government participation by know-it-alls, patronizers, eco-fascists, migration fanatics would not only be a pure nightmare, it would also be the last nail in the coffin for Germany, hammered in with a sledgehammer, unless there is still a big surprise and the voters recognize the dangerous ideology of the Greens. Something I would not take willingly any bets on.

The Greens’ primary goal is to abolish Germany and its indigenous people. If they really get into the Chancellery, Germany is buggered marxistically, and will cease to EXIST.

First, from Die Welt:

Green base wants to delete “Germany” from the title of the election platform

“Germany. Everything is included “— this is the title of the election manifesto of the Greens, on which the base is to vote in a few weeks. However, some party members fear negative associations with the word “Germany”.

In the middle of June, the Greens want to seal the candidacy of co-chair Annalena Baerbock for chancellor at a digital party congress. The election program for the Bundestag election in September is also up for voting . The current draft program is entitled “Germany. Everything is included.” A title that apparently not every party member can get used to. More than 300 party members, including candidates for the Bundestag, have therefore submitted an amendment . They propose that the word “Germany” be removed from the title of the 136-page draft program.

The change was initiated by Michael Sebastian Schneiß from the district association of the Greens in Berlin’s Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district. Schneiß works for the Green MEP Erik Marquardt. The applicant suggests removing the word completely, so in future the title should only be: “Everything is in.” The reason is: “The focus of our politics is on people in their dignity and freedom. And not Germany.”

In addition to Schneiß, Daniel Wesener, Parliamentary Managing Director of the Greens parliamentary group in Berlin, signed the application, as well as several candidates for the Bundestag. Also Timon Dzienus, national board member of the Green Youth, one of the supporters. In the past, Dzienus has shown solidarity with the left-wing extremist organization “Ende Gelände” [means in jargon: “End of Discussion”]. The Berlin branch of the climate protection association Ende Gelände was classified as “left-wing extremist” by the State Office for the Protection of the Constitution, for example because of “targeted discrediting of statehood” and violence against police officers.

Applicant Schneiß defends his proposal on Twitter. The parliamentary manager of the CSU in the Bundestag, Stefan Müller, had accused the Greens of “a disturbed relationship with Germany”. “I think we have the right relationship with Germany,” replied Schneiß.

A Medley of Coronamadness

The COVID news kept pouring in, even when Schloss Bodissey was without electricity earlier this week. Below are three news stories about Corona-related events that have accumulated in my inbox.

First, a report from Germany about the Corona-curfews. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Die Welt:

Curfews remain — Federal Constitutional Court rejects urgent motions

The corona curfews remain in force for the time being. The Federal Constitutional Court rejects the urgent motions against the nocturnal exit restrictions. Whether the measure is compatible with the Basic Law will be examined in the main proceedings.

The Federal Constitutional Court has rejected urgent motions against night exit restrictions in the course of the “Corona emergency brake”. “This does not mean that the exit restriction is compatible with the Basic Law,” said the court in Karlsruhe on Wednesday. This question must be resolved in the main proceedings.

The First Senate justified its decision by stating that the consequences would be more serious if a stop were enacted now, but the curfew could later be declared constitutional. In addition, according to the current legal situation, the period of validity of the challenged regulation is relatively tightly limited. Nevertheless, the judges found that there was a dispute among experts as to whether the nocturnal exit restriction was suitable for achieving its goal. “It is scientifically controversial whether the nightly exit restriction is suitable for achieving its goal. Their lack of suitability is not evident,” it says in the communiqué.

However, the legislature has the prerogative to assess whether the regulation is suitable for achieving its goal. “Other means that guarantee an effective control of existing contact restrictions and a reduction in the infection rate just as effectively, but which interfere less intensively with fundamental rights, are not obvious.” The constitutional complaints are still pending. When the main issue will be decided is open. Several plaintiffs had requested that the court temporarily suspend the nocturnal exit restriction by way of an order (Az .: inter alia 1 BvR 781/21). Two weeks ago, the Bundestag passed the so-called “Federal Emergency Brake”. It has been in force since April 23 and for the first time mandates nationwide that numerous contact restrictions apply in cities and districts with an incidence value of 100 or more. With Germany-wide uniform regulations, politicians want to prevent a patchwork quilt in the federal states and get the spread of the corona virus under control. The curfew between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. was particularly controversial. During this time, people are only allowed to move in public for an important reason, for example because they go to or come from work or have to walk the dog. However, individuals are allowed to exercise until midnight. The curfew is intended to reduce contacts and the rate of infection.

The second article, from the conservative Austrian site Unzensuriert, describes the response by the Corona Competence Team to a quarantine-breaker in Vienna. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation:

Rosanna Spataro: “Nobody Can Keep Me Enslaved”

Rosanna Spataro is the proprietress of a bakery (torteria) on the Via Orti in Chivasso, in the Italian province of Torino. Last month I posted a video of Ms. Spataro excoriating the police for their enforcement of coronavirus regulations against her business.

A few days ago the police arrived in force and shut this spirited lady’s bakery down. In the following video you’ll see Rosanna Spataro confronting the police officers for their shameful actions.

The Real Danger

The following essay was published earlier at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form. See the original post for the embedded tweet and videos.

The real danger is not from the vaccines

by Eeyore

Perhaps the most discouraging thing about humanity is that the vast vast majority of us do not learn by hearing or even seeing first hand. But that a bad thing must happen to us directly before we change our minds.

[Tweet with video of Joe Rogan]

After watching that short Twitter video of Joe Rogan and listening to a bit of Dennis Prager, it occurs to me that the discussion about vaccine deaths in a way is a distraction from a far greater horror. While it’s true that in the short term these mRNA devices cause an order of magnitude more deaths and serious problems than any previous vaccine, the actual amount by percentage of recipients is extremely small and measured in single digits per million vaccinated. At least so far. No one knows medium- to long-term effects yet. (The trials won’t be finished till 2023 in some places, even if the FDA decides to jump protocols and give approval early to please the current admin. That is not real approval. That’s politics and corruption.)

But the real evil is in letting people die who could have been saved by Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc, Ivermectin, monoclonal antibodies and any of the other treatments that we have seen proven safe and effective. And all in order to maintain a state of emergency that ensures funding for an untested technology that makes Big Pharma hundreds of billions. This is not free market. A free market would let anyone say anything, and people who had a proven safe, cheap and effective treatment like Ivermectin, HCQ, and even Quercetin and Zinc and others I have forgotten already, would be on everyone’s screen.

This makes YouTube and Twitter and Facebook’s complicity in suppressing life-saving information under the cynical lie of medical misinformation, while allowing shamanistic or magical or new age “treatments or cures” for cancer and or anything else on their platforms, a crime on of a magnitude nearly impossible to comprehend.

This is a far bigger issue than the immediate deaths and serious illnesses because none of them may have been necessary at all had governments, clearly in league with Big Pharma, not silenced any knowledge of actual treatment that would have reduced deaths by at least 85% according to Dr. Peter McCullough.

A Medley of Cultural Enrichment, Text Edition

As a follow-up to last night’s posted videos, here are all the cultural enrichment articles that have accumulated in my to-do folder over the last few days.

First, from PolitikStube, an op-ed by Alice Weidel of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). Many thanks to Hellequin GB for the translation:

Scandal judgment: Court invites all poverty migrants to Germany!

Alice Weidel: The Lower Saxony State Social Court has for all intents and purposes abolished the laws against the entry of migrants who are already registered in another EU member state. In a judgment it stated that those “refugees” who live in precarious conditions in an EU country may receive full social benefits in Germany. So for those who, in their opinion, receive too few social benefits in Italy, Spain or Greece, the court has opened wide the door to Germany.

The court also found that Germany’s interests in migration policy had to take a back seat. In other words, it has denied our state the right to control migration according to established criteria.

This verdict is a domino-effect scandal. Germany, whose social benefits acted like a magnet before, is now becoming a chosen migration destination even more often. In addition, there is family reunification, the conditions of which have now been eroded to such an extent that proof of kinship no longer has to be provided.

The legislature must finally act. Germany can no longer be seen as a richly-laid table for all those wishing to enter the country. Our resources are finite. Future generations will have to foot the bill for judgments like the one from Lower Saxony. The federal government must finally react and limit migration!

The second article is from Sweden. It reports on gang violence against a court trial by “youths” in a suburb north of Stockholm. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Samhällsnytt:

Attunda district court attacked by masked gang members — Ongoing murder trial interrupted

May 6, 2021

A police-guarded murder trial in Attunda District Court north of Stockholm was exposed to a violent attack Thursday. Some twenty masked persons, armed with bomb-like pyrotechnics, attacked police.

At about 9 in the morning, a gang of upwards of twenty masked young men, linked to the criminal gang groups, X-Team, Bandidos, and Bredängs Network, attacked the court building in Attunda with powerful bomb-like pyrotechnic pieces, so-called bangers. These were also thrown at police who were brought in to guard the trial and at the reinforcements who arrived at the scene after the attack began.

About ten of those involved were taken into custody by police. It is not clear if they were subsequently held in detention or released on the spot. Only after lunchtime did the police gain control of the situation.

The gang-related trial, where four men are accused of planning murder at a children’s party, was earlier transferred from Södertörn District Court due to similar violent incidents with some eighty people involved.

The Attunda District Court specifically has a security room. However, even in the new courtrooms, proceedings cannot be conducted in legal order.

The main proceeding consists of several trial days, of which this was one.

The third article, from Germany, was translated by Hellequin GB:

Wicked! Family of asylum seekers required to leave the country — Muslim mother invented rape of her daughter (4) in daycare

Many rejected asylum seekers are not lacking in a wealth of ideas to prevent deportation or simply to ignore a voluntary departure. The trickery ranges from rioting, threats including biting and spitting attacks, inventions of illnesses (especially psychological ones) to threatening to leap from the roof. Lying, deceiving, playing for time and hoping it will pass and you can stay as intended.

An absolutely despicable case occurred in Koblenz last year. A family unsuccessfully applied for asylum and is obliged to leave the country. The last lifeline for staying in German paradise is a pitiful lie dished out by the Muslim mother that her daughter (4) was raped in the Kita [daycare].

The claim is fictitious, the victim is the only educator at the daycare center, his story of suffering ranges from criminal charges to death threats and illness to occupational disability. A life or professional life destroyed because of a perverse deception, that of alleged protection-seekers who are not even allowed to be here and who abuse the right of asylum to immigrate.

The family of asylum seekers seems to have disappeared in the meantime. They have nothing to fear, as no investigations have been initiated. Surely it can’t be that the Muslim mother will get away with it?

From Austria, a report on culture-enriching violence against women, translated by Gary Fouse:

A Medley of Cultural Enrichment, Video Edition

The recent power outages along with my getting a jab in the eye made me emulate Bill Clinton — I’m getting a little behind in my work. Numerous items have accumulated over the past three days, so I’m going collect them in groups based on their general topics.

There were so many cultural enrichment stories that I’ve divided them into two posts, one consisting of videos and the other of articles. One article that accompanies a video report will be posted here with all the videos.

The first video concerns a particularly gruesome murder that took place in the French city of Mérignac, near Bordeaux. The alleged perpetrator is an Algerian culture-enricher, if I am not mistaken. He is reported to have shot his wife and then burned her alive while she was rendered helpless by her wounds.

Many thanks to HeHa, Gary Fouse, and Sassy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The accompanying article about the murder in Mérignac was translated by HeHa:

Mother burned alive in Mérignac had filed complaint against her companion who had just left prison

In the aftermath of the drama, astonishment and terror are still very much alive in this suburban quarter of Mérignac. A woman aged 31, the mother of three children, is dead in the middle of the street after being burned alive by her companion. He had just come out of prison.

May 5, 2021

There is incomprehension in this suburban quarter of quiet reputation in Mérignac. How could such a drama have happened? At 18:10 Tuesday evening, May 4, when the residents of Avenue Carnot heard cries and bangs.

“At first, we thought it was firecrackers,” says a local resident. “We thought the young people were having fun.”

But very quickly they realized the drama that was building up. According to the first elements, the 31-year-old woman manages to flee from the house, but she can’t go very far, followed by her armed companion in the street.

“We passed him. He passed in front of us with a shotgun and some cartridges. We called the police. In the meantime, he set fire to the house.”

According to the Bordeaux prosecutor’s office, “two witnesses saw her fall to the ground.” Her partner, armed, shot her once, then a second time. She was wounded in her thighs, lying on the street, but still breathing.

The 44-year-old individual, from whom she was officially separated, took a can from a van parked nearby, splashed his wife with a liquid, and set her on fire. The first responders could not save her. The family home, situated a few hundred meters from the scene, was discovered at the same time, partially burned and empty of occupants.

The perpetrator, who left the scene on foot, was arrested by the services of BAC, without any injuries to police, a short time later, at 18:45 in the proximity of Avenue Leon-Blum, in the municipality of Pessac.

The prosecutor confirmed that the subject was heavily armed, carrying a 12-gauge shotgun, a gas pistol, and a cartridge belt. After a preliminary investigation, it turns out that Mounir B. is unfavorably known to police and judicial authorities.

May Day!

The most important holiday of the year for Progressives is May 1st, which Vlad calls the “commie Christmas”. May Day fell on Saturday this year, which made it doubly auspicious for the vanguard of the world revolution.

A crowd of Antifa activists, left-revolutionaries, and supporters of “Palestine” marched in Berlin last Saturday and engaged in their customary practice of sending police to the hospital. The report below shows some video excerpts from the goings-on.
