Retarded Somali rapist gets 4 years therapy and speech training in Germany

In Herford, in NRW state, an 88-year-old woman was raped by a 20-year-old “refugee” from Somalia. The juvenile court considered the man to be “traumatized by the journey (migration), less gifted with delayed maturity, and completely lonely" … yet able to know right from wrong.

The very elderly woman, who was left bruised and hemorrhaging, was no doubt left traumatized too … but being a German, it's obviously considered she can take it (and even probably deserves it, as the thinking goes). I would like to think she was one of the supporters of Merkel's policies so that she actually did get what she deserved, but by the age of 88 one invariably has developed better sense. We all get more conservative as we get older. Thus I have great anger over the treatment of this woman.

The idiot Somali had been living in an emergency shelter in Bad Oeynhausen, from where he had repeatedly knocked on women's front doors, asking if they would have sex with him. In his own words, he was looking for a woman to marry so he could have the right to stay.

German opinion against Merkel/migrants is rising, but slowly

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2016-01-15 14:31

In case you wonder, this is the type of German that wants more refugees. Student Eric Hattke is spokesman for the network "Dresden for all."

For the first time, a majority of Germans say the country cannot manage the influx of asylum seekers, according to a poll by public broadcaster ZDF published today. Fifty-six percent say Chancellor Merkel is doing a poor job handling the refugee crisis, while 37 percent find the crisis manageable.

A vast majority of 70 percent of respondents expect crime to rise due to a large increase in refugees, compared to 62 percent in October. Only 27 percent do not expect crime to rise. Strenghening laws and procedures for deporting asylum seekers who commit crimes is supported by 73 percent .

Furthermore, compared to 33 percent of respondents in October saying that refugees represent a threat to German culture and societal values, 42 percent now believe so. That compares to 52 percent of Germans who do not view refugees as a threat. [The people who say this do not care very much about or for German culture and societal values to begin with. Remember there are 5 million Turks in Germany, plus many other foreign peoples including Jews. -cy]

Viktor Orbán on liberalism and stopping immigration to protect Schengen

Hungarian Prime Minister Orban doing the interview.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was interviewed on Kossuth Rádió’s “180 Minutes” programme on Jan. 14, 2016. 

The following are two excerpts relating to the European migration crisis:

I do not want to begin the year with debates which may seem to be of an ideological nature, but for some time I have been saying that the liberal mentality – liberalism in its present form, in this modern form – has turned against freedom. The fact that liberals have turned certain principles into rigid dogmas and want to make them compulsory is bad for freedom of speech. This issue, too, relates to those who want to lecture us on freedom of speech. In the name of liberalism and freedom they supress all negative news associated with refugees or migrants, as certain developments in real life do not coincide with their ideological views and they want to take in immigrants, thinking that it is good that are coming into a country.

Two law experts say Merkel acting outside the Constitution

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-01-13 21:55

Many asylum-seekers came to Germany at the invitation of Chancellor Merkel - as they saw it - and even carried her picture, hoping to win her help with their problems.

"Merkel's solo was an act of self-empowerment"

The former president of the Constitutional Court of North Rhine-Westphalia, Michael Bertrams has accused Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) of possible breach of the constitution in the refugee policy.
 
 "Going it alone has let hundreds of thousands of refugees into the country. That was very compassionate, but came with no apparent plan," Bertram writes in an article for the "Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger".

Merkel's approach raises the constitutional question of whether she had ever legitimized it. "In our representative democracy, all key decisions are - especially those with impact on the budget - in the hands of elected MPs," said Bertram, with regard to decisions of the Federal Constitutional Court on the requirement of parliamentary approval for the deployment of armed German troops abroad.

Suicide bomber who killed 10 German nationals was registered Syrian "refugee"

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-01-13 13:18

The bomber Nabil Fadli, registered in Istanbul as a refugee from Syria. This picture was published by the Turkish police on January 5.

The suicide bomber has been identified as 27-year-old Nabil Fadli, who entered Turkey from Syria as a refugee on January 5. Considering he didn't waste any time in killing some of the first Europeans he found, it's pretty clear that was what he came for.

Eleven tourists, 10 of them German, were killed and 15 wounded (7 of them German with 5 in intensive care). Chancellor Merkel offered condolences yesterday to the families of the dead without specifying Germans, but since the news broke that the bomber was a registered Syrian asylum-seeker it has fallen entirely to Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere (CDU) to be Germany's spokesman on the matter. He traveled to Istanbul and called the tragedy “an attack against humanity,” playing down the German loss and emphasizing the close relations between the two countries.  In fact, he said Germans should not stop visiting their close ally Turkey because tourism must not be depressed.

Pegida goes to Leipzig today - Watch Livestream

First Anniversary Birthday celebration for LEGIDA today!

Dresden PEGIDA will be in Leipzig to help them celebrate. No demonstration in Dresden today.

Leipzig Antifa and pro-refugee groups are very extreme and mean. They will be out in force. Remember the riot they caused on December 12, 2015.

Scheduled speakers: Markus Johnke, Tatjana Festerling, Lutz Bachmann, Siegfried Däbritz, the Swiss Edigenosse Ignatz Bearth, Michael Viehmann and the speaker Helene from Chemnitz. (Festerling talked about the Cologne sex scandal)

The weather is rainy and cold - many wet umbrellas. As it turned out, there was no confrontation with the Antifa, the over 2000  police presence kept them confined. I would call the rally a big success because so many more people turned out than ever before in Leipzig. They appeared to me to be a younger crowd than in Dresden, mostly male.

Take a look at this outrageously biased report in DW. It ends with "the culprits [in Cologne] were said to have been of North African or Middle Eastern in appearance", when the police have already long established they were!  Lying Press, for sure.

Below : Three views of the large crowd at Legida 1st anniversary demo which was relegated by the city to a large parking lot. They went on their march after the main speakers were finished, with tons of police protection. Only two more short speeches when they returned.


First gathering of Pegida in 2016: the beginning of a landmark year

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2016-01-04 14:04

This is Jan. 4, 2016, below freezing in Dresden, and the Pegida crowd looks the same as always. They are extremely faithful.

Live Stream video of the rally

6:30 In Dresden it snowed, it is very cold, minus 4 degrees and windless. The square in front of the Semper Opera fills. The Opera House projects its now-familiar slogan: "We are not a stage for xenophobia".

The Pegida opponents are at the Postplatz having a counter-demo and all around are police buses that have these demonstrators completely encircled.

In the Church of Our Lady today is the traditional prayer for peace. After that there will be a procession and some may wish to join the counter-demonstrators "Dresden Pegidafrei" initiative.

Arab Muslims “massively” molest women on New Year's Eve in Cologne

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2016-01-02 12:42

Young woman in Cologne, Germany celebrating the New Year 2016 provokes a culture-clash with Arab  foreigners.

Cologne is, as you might remember, one of the high spots of the Welcoming Culture in Germany. The mayor, Henriette Recker, was previously responsible for running refugee services in the city—in charge of accommodating asylum-seekers.

So it is not unexpected that about 30 women have now reported to the police that they were molested in Cologne's main train station on New Year's Eve.

A group of men encircled multiple women and “with their hands they were really everywhere. This is something I've never experienced,” said a 22 year-old victim. “When we called for help, they laughed.”

From The Epoch Times

UPDATE: The Pegida venue was first changed to the Silesian square outside the station in Dresden Neustadt. At the last minute it became the Königsufer near the State Chancellery when the demonstration permit for the Silesian square went to another association, one described by Lutz Bachmann on Facebook as an "Antifa-Demo'".

At the Semperoper Plaza where Pegida has gathered from the very beginning, a different group was given permission for this date [apparently calling themselves “Dresden Nazifrei,” even though Pegida has nothing to do with Nazis]. According to The Epoch Times, at 5:30 pm a demo named "Heart Instead of Baiting" filled the square to about one-third, with people spread out with plenty of space betweem them. There was a video shown and about an hour of music and speeches by artists from the Semper Opera and the Schauspielhaus (as best I can understand). The antifa crowd was estimated at only 3,000 to 4,000.
