The Green party is ubiquitous in German life. Public broadcasters are gushing. The corporate media is gushing. Legend has it that they even recycle their bathwater as drinks. And yet polls suggest that they will only win around 20% of the votes in the upcoming general election.
Why bother then? Because the other parties – with the exception of the AfD – are following the same script. It is their policies that will be pushed through, no matter what. They are the equivalent of the AOC-wing of the US Democrats which has driven every concern for the little guy out of their party. We are witnessing a snobbish cult infecting one public institution after the other and leaves behind nothing but empty shells, exclusively answerable to their political whims.
Finally an initiative is propping up info posters in the big city where political education is in dire need: Green Feces, #GruenerMist!
In the night from Tuesday to Wednesday a number of people have set shelters on fire, eradicating the accommodations for a whopping 12,000 residents. Disturbingly, the arsonists are probably disgruntled inhabitants themselves. The rage is believed to have been sparked by corona restrictions that were spwaned by the positive test results of 35 individuals. What was left after the first fire, was burnt down in a second one in the night from Wednesday to Thursday, destroying an additional 1,000 shelters. Soon voices were heard that blamed Europe on the situation. Not the elites. Mind you! Europe. Armin Laschet, Prime Minister of the state North-Rhine Westfalia, knows what NGOs and media want to hear and proposes to take them to Germany. Interior minister plays the “bad cop” feigning some lukewarm conservative approach, which is to distribute them across Europe. This is controlled opposition. The hyper-bad-Nazi-gestapo-cop solution to distribute them across Asia and Africa is not offered.
