Some people seem to be everywhere at once. Who can say whether Dennis Prager hosts a radio show, writes scholarly books about Judaism or runs the web enterprise ‘PragerU’? He is all and does it all. Likewise father of seven children Götz Kubitschek runs the literature publishing house ‘Antaios’, operates a book retail distribution service, works an organic-food farm and is the editor-in-chief of his own magazine ‘Sezession.’ Secret service ‘Verfassungsschutz’ will now be allowed to tap his private communication and use secret spies against him and his think-tank ‘Institute for State Politics’ (German: Insitut für Staatspolitik). They have classified him now as “right-wing extremist.” And we all know what this means. Nazi-like. But the authoritarians on the left don’t admit what their accusations actually mean and ‘right-wing extremist’ is received by the wider public as “Nazi” when in Reality it is one of these fuzzy proxy-words that are too vague to allow for any defence. Kubitschek’s wife Ellen Kositza even speaks Polish!
Outside of that it is NOT the job of intelligence agencies to create or destroy potential majorities in the electorate. And what is important for people to understand is that human rights violations are acceptable here because Germans, like most of us, fall into a schadenfreude-self-booster fallacy. When somebody is hurt, we hope that he deserved it. Government overreach can be built on the sentiment that everybody has it coming.
My channel is devoted to German and EU politics and, yet, the assault on Western land cannot remain undiscussed. The ramifications of Middle Eastern politics for Europe and America are bigger than many people think. I understand and respect America’s desire for “a little me-time” (Ann Coulter phrase). I respect it the more because of Europe’s inaction over the past decades and I respect it because Americans, particularly those who protect us Westerners with their service in the US military, deserve to be involved in as few cases as possible and by a political leadership that they can trust. We don’t have a trustworthy leadership in the West right now. Naturally, I don’t ask for any involvement and, thus, this is not what the video is about.
Yet, the idea that the Middle East has nothing to do with us while Muslims keep pouring into our countries must be contested. Linda Sarsour, Ilhan Omar and others are constantly lecturing us about our alleged “racism”. And, often enough, the money for the woke brainwashing comes from camouflage outfits of the Muslim Brotherhood, the mothership of the Hamas terror group which is launching rockets from the Gaza strip right now.
This is an off-the-cuff talk. So I don’t go through rocket types, terror groups and leadership quotes to link the violence to the funders in Tehran.
A new survey ahead of the national election in September shows Germans are more concerned about the future state of the environment than they are about more headline-grabbing topics like terrorism or the refugee crisis.
