I predict that Chancellor Merkel of Germany, the most powerful European leader of the most powerful country in Europe, will resign within months, if not weeks, forced out by members of her own party, the Christian Democrats (CDU), and her party’s coalition partners.
The causes are many and they keep multiplying, daily.
Let us start with the thoroughly disgusting rapes and other crimes that happened on New Year’s Eve in Cologne and in other German cities.
To date, more than 500 women have filed criminal complaints over the New Year’s Eve attacks, with 40% alleging sexual assaults. Two women have claimed to have been raped. Many victims identified their attackers as men of Arab or North African origin. Of the 32 people suspected of these crimes, 22 are asylum seekers.
The head of the German Federal Criminal Police Office, along with police in Berlin, Hamburg, Bielefeld, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Stuttgart reported similar incidents. Furthermore, police in Vienna and Salzburg in Austria, and Zurich in Switzerland, raised the alarm about similar mass assaults against women by newly arrived Arab migrants. Sweden and Finland also experienced the same on New Year’s Eve.
On Merkel’s watch, these poor defenseless women have been sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. They were victims of her party’s self-destructive fixation with importing and protecting Arab and Muslim men whose cultures and belief systems are hostile to German and European values of equality of men and women.
Why were the German police incapable of protecting the women in Cologne and other German cities? They were under strict orders from Merkel’s officials to keep away from the rampaging Arab and North African migrants for fear of being viewed as racist or anti-immigrant and thereby giving credibility to the right wing anti-immigrant movement.
Is that crazy or what?
At first, German police came out with a public statement that the evening was “uneventful.”
That’s because police authorities were under strict instructions not to disclose the assaults and the ethnic origins of the perpetrators.
Days after the fact, Interior Minister Ralf Jaeger publicly confessed that there were “serious failures” by the police, who were significantly outnumbered but never called for reinforcements. Jaeger further criticized the police for refusing to disclose that the vast majority of the perpetrators were men with migrant backgrounds, blaming this on misguided “political correctness.”
As a result, the chief of police in Cologne was fired (that is, forced into early retirement) in a pathetic effort to restore trust in the police authorities.
To add further insult to the sexual assault injuries committed by those North African and Arab men, the Cologne’s female mayor, Henriette Reker slut-shamed the women for straying too close to these foreigners. She stupidly instructed them to stay at arm’s length from these foreigners in future.
(Perhaps these women should go full niqab so as not to give license to these Arab Muslim men to rape them.)
Fortunately, the mayor was vilified on social media and in the national and international press and was forced to publicly apologize for her ridiculous comments. Her political career is toast.
I predict that Angela Merkel will be following Cologne;s mayor out the political door, with her legacy in tatters.
Merkel hoped this charitable act would once and for all cleanse Germany’s tarnished Nazi history.
But as Oscar Wilde wisely and cynically noted, “No good deed goes unpunished.”
Ignoring the legitimate concerns of police, security forces and millions of average working class Germans, Merkel gave a free pass for hundreds of thousands of Mideast and Muslim men to bring their anti-female culture to Germany.
During the New Year’s Eve rape spree, one Syrian male refugee defended his disgusting actions by claiming, “I am Syrian. Merkel has invited us to your country.”
Now Merkel has promised to make it easier for authorities to deport refugees convicted of crimes. But this is way too little and way too late.
Just yesterday, Merkel admitted that Germany has lost control of the refugee crisis.
Yet she still refuses to cap the number of foreign immigrants admitted to Germany.
Popular support for the anti-immigrant right wing parties is surging. Women are leaving the left and Merkel’s Christian Democrat party.
Auf Wiedersehen, Chancellor Merkel. It is time you stayed many arms’ length from the German people you abandoned for political correctness, for political power and for your very wrong-headed personal legacy.
