Concerns about Islam? Merkel suggests Germans sing Christmas carols while Berlin burns

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

In a recent speech, German Chancellor Angela Merkel finally acknowledged the obvious, which is to say, that there are “concerns about Islam” in Germany.

You don’t say, Madame?

I wonder if the migrant sexual assault-fest in Cologne last New Year’s Eve tipped her off? Just one of many sordid incidents resulting from Germany’s cultural enrichment program.

At least she’s admitting there’s a problem, but her solution makes me wonder if she’s losing her marbles.

She wants Germans to cling to Christian traditions, like singing Christmas carols and playing the flute.

Yes, Germans taking to the streets of Berlin and Munich, singing "Jingle Bell Rock" while accompanied by a legion of flute players.

Take that, radical Islam!

Is this epiphany heartfelt or is it due to the rapidly changing political landscape as the far-right and openly anti-Islamist AfD party makes significant gains in local elections?

That doesn’t bode well for Merkel heading into next year’s federal election.

But instead of doing something tangible, like closing borders to fake refugees or deporting migrants who behave badly, Merkel wants Christian Germans to sing.

McCallum and Trudeau will gladly take in whoever Germany rejects as inadmissible.

Yeah and then she will have them arrested for a hate crime for singing the carols. Sounds awesome.

“if Merkel’s party is defeated, the next government will want MORE immigration, not less.”

If that is the case there needs to be a civil war in Germany. This madness cannot and should not continue.

If Germany is stupid enough to elect a government more pro immigration than Merkel’s, after all of this, they deserve to be shunned by the world. I don’t think its going to happen.

First, an important correction: the AfD (Alternatif fuer Deutschland, which translates as Alternative for Germany) had significant support in provincial elections, not local elections. Germany has 16 “Bundeslands”, which I’ll translate as provinces since we are in Canada and the AfD did surprisingly well in at least three of those “provincial” legislatures. “Local” elections implies mayoral races, not provincial races.

I think her comments about Christmas carols are being taken out of context. She expresses concern about the AfD and Pegida – a German nationalist group which has objected to Muslim immigration – and refers to the fact that they have sung Christmas carols at their events. She is simply saying that “moderate” Germans should “take back” their culture and also sing Christmas carols, much as feminists have their “take back the night” walks where the walk en masse to show that they will not let the fear of rapists keep them at home. Merkel’s father was a pastor so it’s not particularly surprising that she might suggest a revival of German Christmas traditions. (What is surprising is that she was actually born in West Germany but her father took a job as a clergyman in East Germany when she was only a year old: the entire family moved to East Germany to take this post and never moved back. I can’t imagine what her father was thinking, moving to a state that was hostile to all religion, where he was sure to be harassed if not persecuted.)

I think Merkel’s immigration plan to open the borders and let in all the “refugees” who could get there was extremely ill-advised and I think she’s going to pay a heavy price at the next election, assuming she actually runs. (She has not announced that she will contest the election yet.) I’m very concerned that all the other major parties in Germany are actually further LEFT than Merkel’s party is; unless AfD does very VERY well at the national level, it seems likely that if Merkel’s party is defeated, the next government will want MORE immigration, not less.

Remember that Merkel, being born 1954, had the full youth indoctrination into socialism by the Eastern German Soviet Socialists. She is not a product of Western culture, hence her distain for it.

Merkel’s advice amounts to telling the makers to grab their ankles and enjoy it – however although this message may resonate with true ankle-grabbers, pillow munchers, Burka lovers and sundry other takers, German nationalist pride is a thing you attack at your own peril- history has not been kind to those who sought to repress German national pride – every time it has been attempted the backlash had a global impact

“Seriously though, this is the kind of damage just 1 person can do.”
A point not to be taken lightly here in Canada with our sitting PM Justin. I couldn’t agree more Jan.
commented 2016-10-30 12:45:30 -0400
I think there should be some clause in the agreement for PMs that each year the public have the choice of voting out that person if they are doing a lousy job (I wish Trudeau). Something like an eligibility list where the second candidate with the highest votes gets the job.
Imagine if only a petition would do it!
Seriously though, this is the kind of damage just 1 person can do. And each country is voting in dangerous people. Why or more precisely, how are they getting voted in?
commented 2016-10-30 12:38:35 -0400
Maybe she’s hoping the Christians will step up and correct her mistakes.
Or, she’s trying to create a further problem between Christians and Muslims to try to turn this into a war of religions rather than her insane decision to start this entire problem in the first place.

Germany is getting bad . . . but France is much worse . . .
“Will France soon forbid the ringing of Notre Dame’s bells?
It happened already in Boissettes, and on the outskirts of Metz, where the bells of the church of Sainte Ruffine have been forced by the state authorities to keep silent. Meanwhile, the muezzin’s calls to Islamic prayer continue to broadcast.”

A new book is shaking France. Les cloches sonneront-elles encore demain? (“Will the Church Bells Ring Tomorrow?”), by Philippe de Villiers, is shattering the nation.
De Villiers points out that:
“France has experienced many misfortunes in its history. But for the first time, it must face the fear of disappearing. In France, there are two groups: a new people who move with pride and an exhausted people, who are not even aware of the conditions needed for their own survival”.

Merkel is correct in one aspect. Germany is post-christian. It has moved toward secularism which is an insufficient foundation on which to build a society. I present all western nations as evidence. The further away from the Christian foundations a nation gets and the more secularized the “stupider” we become. “When Man ceases to worship God he does not worship nothing but worships everything.” Hence the SJWs scurrying around from one lunacy to another.

But a nation cannot try to adopt the Christian mantle without actually believing the gospel itself. And that of course cannot be forced. “When we go insane, we all go insane together. When we regain our sanity we do it one at time”. So we will have to suffer unnecessarily in order to purge our minds of the spiritual dross that has weakened our thinking.

But many civilizations have risen and fallen while the faith stands strong. Ours will be no different. God’s most effective judgements are to give people what they want. After all, that’s what hell is. Not an imposition by a mercurial God but a choice of His defiant people.

Why no commenting on the homeschooling story??
The CBC did not allow any commenting on their homeschooling reports which I can understand because they don’t want anyone to challenge their opinions, but the Rebel?
Please open it to comments.
