German Of The Day: Gleichschaltung

That means “enforced political conformity” and that’s what’s happening in Germany’s media world right now.


Actually, that’s what’s always been happening in Germany’s media world but it’s particularly hard to overlook during the current refugee crisis. How the media here unanimously come together in this Pavlovian response to organize massive mind policing undertakings like this is the thing that really amazes me. It’s like… Magic.

You didn’t have to read a paper or turn on a news channel to know in advance what the reaction to PEGIDA’s anti-immigration get-together in Dresden yesterday would be. Do you want the long version? “They’re all a bunch of Nazis!” All 50,000 of those protesting? The same of course applies to all the others who voice their concern about Germany being overrun by refugees (I am convinced that is now what the majority of Germans think): They are immediately made mundtot (another great word – “mouth-dead” or muzzled) and labeled idiots or right-wing radicals. Over a half a country comprised of idiots and right-wing radicals? Well, sure. Why not? I could believe that. But not in this case.

Now we have reached the point where many Germans feel bullied and do not speak openly about what they really think and their resentment about this will only keep growing. Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t this already happen here in the past? This guilt-driven obsession with compensating for some dark German past is preparing the way for what could be another one, in other words. Only in the future, of course. You know what I mean. Maybe, just maybe, it’s time to understand that these-whole-lot-of-non-Nazi-German-citizens who are gravely concerned about this situation need to be taken seriously by the mind police. Nobody has the intention of building a wall. But I don’t see how anybody has a choice anymore.

The scale of the refugee influx into Germany is almost unprecedented in modern European history: 1.5 million people in six months. It’s as if the US, with four times Germany’s population, were taking in one million refugees each month.

You Can Fool All Of The People Some Of The Time

Roughly half of Germans asked are dissatisfied with chancellor Merkel’s refugee policy. This has come out in a survey taken by the INSA Opinion Research Institute in Erfurt. 48 percent disagreed with the statement “For the most part I am satisfied with the chancellor’s handling of the situation.” 41 percent agreed. 11 Percent did not specify.


Despite Chancellor Angela Merkel’s warm words and saintly intentions to shoulder the refugee crisis, her efforts are meeting resistance at home. The populace feels overwhelmed and unsupported, not knowing where to accommodate so many people.

„In der Flüchtlingspolitik hat die Bundeskanzlerin die Deutschen mehrheitlich gegen sich. Und zwar aus ganz unterschiedlichen Gründen: Die einen nschen sich noch mehr Offenheit gegenüber den Flüchtlingen, die anderen Orbans Härte.“

But I Didn’t Inhale

Now this one here knocked my socks CLEAN off. Finally, some real news.


German GREEN whip Anton Hofreiter from the GREEN party has revealed in a shocking interview about his new GREEN Book entitled “Toking and Criminality” that yes, he, too, he HIM-GREEN-SELF actually smoked GREEN pot in his youth. He didn’t do it all that often, though. And it goes without saying that he didn’t inhale. And that was way back when in his youth, like he says. When he was young and stuff.

His drugs today are wine and beer. Damn. He reminds me of me.

“Ja, ich habe in meiner Jugend gekifft.”

Who Would Want To Stay In My Crappy Country?

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has brushed off calls for Hungary to reconsider its rejection of a fairer redistribution system for refugees across all countries belonging to the European Union by explaining how nobody in their right mind would want to set foot much less spend the night in a rotten country like his. He then named a few other trashy European nations no self-respecting war refugee would want anything to do with, suggesting he could name a whole lot more where those came from.


The problem is not European, it’s German. Nobody would like to stay in Hungary, neither Slovakia, Poland or Estonia. All of them would like to go to Germany,” the well-meaning prime minister said.

Der hässliche Populismus Viktor Orbáns kann nicht über die eigentliche Ursache der Flüchtlingskrise hinwegtäuschen: Die EU hat das Thema Migration völlig unterschätzt.

Today’s Headlines

Riots in Suhl refugee camp in Germany.
Refugee chaos in Macedonia.
UK sends cops to Calais to stop migrants from coming through the Chunnel.
Slovakia refuses to let in Muslim refugees.
Germany expecting 800,000 migrants this year.

Maybe this is just me but I think the problem here could have something to do with all of the refugees coming to Europe right now. Has anyone called Brussels yet?

Maybe it’s time for the Europeans to consider putting up a wall down there in the Mediterranean Sea somewhere. And have Mexico pay for it.

Als Erstes muss eine Mauer gebaut werden, für die Mexiko zahlen muss.

German Of The Day: Auf Dem Linken Auge Blind

That means “blind in the left eye” and that’s what mainstream media in Germany is. When it comes to politically motivated attacks, I mean.

Frauke Petry

More German n-word nonsense here. Apparently, if you’re a eurosceptic and anti-immigration – and a top dog in the AfD protest party – that automatically makes you a Nazi these days.

This woman isn’t a Nazi, of course. Not by any means. But her views are troubling for a lot of people in Germany because it’s how they think, too, only they are not able to speak their minds out loud. So the enlightened left just just took over the conversation for them and attacked her with a paint bomb at a meeting in Göttingen, calling her a Nazi because, well, they can. And, when in doubt, everybody uses the n-word here so this is nothing new. And extreme left-wingers are, I dunno, cute or something.

See Goodwin’s law if you’re confused on this point. These folks just refuse to grow up.

“Sind Sie Frauke Petry?”

If It Wasn’t For Last Place We Wouldn’t Have No Place At All

Alllemagne, null points.


Deutschlands Schmach wird Teil einer Ausstellung: Es ist kein putziger Zufall, sondern tiefe Einsicht und Ausdruck der österreichischen Gemütslage, dass zum ESC im ehrwürdigen Leopold-Museum eine Ausstellung zu sehen ist, die “The Nul-Pointers” heißt. Der in Wien lebende deutsche Schriftsteller Tex Rubinowitz hat sie erstellt und dafür alle bisher 34 Sängerinnen und Sänger mit eiligem Strich auf Holztafeln gemalt, die im Wettbewerb null Punkte bekamen. Es ist eine witzige Schau mit traurigen Gesichtern, in einem Raum werden deren Lieder gespielt.

German Of The Day: German Mut

Nope, that doesn’t mean German pooch or mongrel. That means German courage.

German Mut

And it takes quite a bit of German courage for a German political party to come out in support of economic-liberal policies and free choice in a country like Germany these days (in the end, most Germans want everything regulated for them and prefer equality and conformity to free choice). But that is what the FDP (FDP 2.0?) is trying to do. They’re still on the outside looking in after their ousting in 2013 but appear to be bouncing back, at least for the moment.

They are currently so courageous, in fact, that they must be high. Not only are the Free Democrats now proposing that marijuana be legalized, which isn’t all that original these days, they also think it’s time for Germany to introduce a flat tax. Good luck on that. That’ll be a real hard one to sell here, as elsewhere. Who’s going to “eat the rich” then?

“Die erste Reform, die wir unserem Land empfehlen, ist eine Reform der Mentalität.”

Even When We Win We Lose

Or so it goes with SPD these days.


Germany’s Social Democrats, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition partners, on Sunday suffered their worst-ever electoral setback in regional polls in Bremen, raising questions about party leader Sigmar Gabriel’s hopes of gaining ground nationally on Ms Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats.

So sehen Sieger aus (this is what winners look like):


In Bremen ändern 6,5 Prozent für die FDP nicht viel. Im Bund aber eröffnet ihre Wiedererweckung Gedankenspiele für die Wahl 2017.
