German Of The Day: Untergetaucht

That means submerged, disappeared.

Angela

Somebody explain the logic to me because I just don’t understand. So, the same emotion-driven woman (& Co.) who, driven by “we can do it” empathy, opened up the flood gates in 2015 amid wild cheers of refugee-welcoming Gutmensch-Germans for the very same people now forcing their way into Europe under the very same conditions today ist untergetaucht – has submerged like a German sub?

Does this mean that she and the other Gutmenschen are tacitly admitting that her decision in 2015 was a mistake?

If not, then why doesn’t she make another welcome pronouncement? Maybe this time she’s too busy because she’s organizing an airlift to fly them directly to Berlin?

About 13,000 migrants have gathered along the 212-kilometer (125-mile) border between Turkey and Greece after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to allow refugees to cross into Europe, the United Nations said on Saturday.
