Police officers made a visit at Björn Höcke’s home. The opposition leader in the parliament of the state of Thuringen is accused of having posted hate on social media. What is there to search in a home when the “crime” is committed on the internet? The officers just want to see if Björn Höcke’s words were his own words and not maybe … Lock, a squirrel! It is a classic example of intimidation and government overreach in Merkel’s “best Germany we ever had.” (note: That was her last election campaign slogan.)
On the 9th of March Angela Merkel held the 13th Integration Summit (German: 19. Integrationsgipfel) which in part established and advanced her ‘national action plan for integration’ (German: NAP-I, Nationaler Aktionsplan Integration). The organiser of the event is Germany’s Secretary for Integration (German: Integrationsbeauftragte) Annette Widmann-Mauz. 300 groups attended the summit among which there were eleven federal ministry’s and 75 “migrant organisations,” i.e. immigration lobby groups.
The goal is the coordination of existing policies across all political level, from local community to the federal government. Additionally around 120 distinct policies are to be developed in four or five working groups (German: Themenforen) in each of the five phases of the plan.
But heart and soul of the integration is, of course, the fight against racism which is the only reason why specialist professionals stay out of the country and migrants already inside the country don’t live up to their full potential. Family Minister Franziska Giffey confirmed her ambition to introduce a bill to support her ‘Living Democracy’ slush found (German: Demokratie leben!). The future law will be aptly named Defensive-Democracy-Promotion Law.
Germans will also see a lot of affirmative action both in the public and private sector. A diversity strategy program for the healthcare system in the state of Saarland is set to be rolled out nationally …
The Green party (currently polling at around 18% and culturally far more influential than that already suggests) have written a manifesto in which they demand the inclusion of anti-racism into our constitution Grundgesetz. Article 3, section 3 is to include the goal that ‘the state guarantees the protection against all group-oriented violations of the equal dignity of all human beings and works towards the abolition of all existing disadvantages.’
Additionally a new Federal ministry is to be set up for ‘social cohesion,’ which will most certainly have the exact opposite effect because it is to focus on anti-discrimination, women, immigration, queer, disabilities, family, seniors, youth and “democracy.” Of course, this shall not take away from the already existing sinecure offices because those issues were supposedly cross-sectional and must also be dealt with on all other legs of our balooning state administration.

Poland is leaving the feminist Istanbul Convention. The country argues about the convention. I join in and read the treaty in 9 videos. It is possible that the EU may ascend the convention which could come with sanctions for countries that don’t oblige. As of today the Istanbul Convention has not been ratified by EU members Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, and Slovakia. East Europe is currently also battled by the Eurocrats for keeping some of their departments free of leaflets that advertise for queer pressure group talking points. Some Polish cities are currently cut out of EU city partnership programs because of that.
I don’t want to discuss the queer policy wars in this series, though.
Episode 1: The Preamble
Today, I run you through the Preamble of the feminist Istanbul Convention.
Episode 2: Chapter I
In Chapter I it becomes clearer how the pretext of violence prevention is used to usher through a whole baggage of ideological policy goals “against discrimination” and for the “empowerment of women.” It should be no surprise that violence is redefined to include obscure concepts like psychological and even “economic” violence. The self-righteousness is so epic that the treaty does not even shy away from suggesting constitutional changes.
Episode 3: Chapter II
Turkey is now also considering the exit. While many points touched, not tackled, in the treaty are still a considerable problem in Turkey, and much more so than in Poland, the vagueness and the focus of the treaty shows why other approaches are more effective. I read Chapter II which shows how the Council of Europe bundled its energy for the purpose of channelling money into feminist groups, sinecure offices and newly established bureaucracy.
I mention a previous video on the NGO funding through the German state. Additionally, you can see where such money probably turns up again in “chaz”-like autonomous areas like Rigaerstraße or Connewitz in my videos on Rigaerstraße and Connewitz.
Episode 4: Chapter III
Today I read chapter III which lines out the propaganda efforts from education over public to private media. All areas of life have to be mobilised for the eradication of all violence to the last case.
Episode 5: Chapter IV
Hotlines, battered woman shelters, trauma support, the wheel must be reinvented. The ladies touched a lot of issues that have already been solved. Yes, a legal system does exist and, yes, despite Black Lives Matter, a police force also does exist.
Episode 6: Chapter V
I read Chapter V which “solves” all the problems of Islam. For whatever reason feminists believe that committees, sinecure offices and tax payer money are what heals the wounds. It also “solves” all the problems, you thought, were already solved. Yes, it should be illegal to threaten people and countries should criminalise physical violence.
Episode 7: Chapter VI
Episode 8: Chapter VII
In this episode I read Chapter VII which deals with all matters of migration and asylum. Of course, barely any elitist writing comes without migration support these days. Even the ostensible topic ‘violence against women’ seems to offer a stage for that issue.
Episode 9: Chapter VIII To End
I run through the rest of the Istanbul Convention. It seeks to establish GREVIO the “Group of experts on action against violence against women and domestic violence.” It is selected by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe and the obscure “expertise” is supposedly based on the sheer divinely supremacy of their pristine virtues.
The Lutheran Church Day Festival (German: evangelischer Kirchentag) is a hocus pocus new age fair masquerading as Christianity. This year’s sermons were about the refugee crisis, climate change and right-wing populism. The motto ‘What a trust!’. But what trust? Trust in G-d or trust in the state? It is not clear. But if you are not lying passed out in the grass, you probably do it wrong anyway.
