The airport escape route is about to close soon, yet more people are fleeing the Taliban. Nobody knows where they will go, through Tajikistan, through Uzbekistan, through Turkmenistan, through Pakistan, through Iran, anywhere. But Angela Merkel knows already where the most needy are. While the media shows the heart wrenching images from the airport. She offers money. To whom? To Non-governmental organizations, of course. Her buddy Ursula von der Leyen adds some more and, whoops, the bill runs up to 800 million € ($940 million).
The Biden administration and its NATO allies have scrambled out of Afghanistan in the most chaotic and irresponsible way: Weapons fell into the hands of the enemy and, in an attempt to not embarrass the now exiled government, the level of security was misrepresented leaving thousands trapped. During the preparation of the withdrawal no time was spent to identify those who could have moved to other places, non-Western countries, and in the rare cases of highly skilled and highly freedom-oriented individuals, to Western countries. Now, thousands of unknown passengers are transported to Western nations and nobody can identify who is deserving and who merely seeks their financial luck.
Was the war a mistake? After the initial revenge for 9/11 it seems to have grown into one. NGOs and many a military officer saw an opportunity to elevate their status and income. They did not honestly report the (lack of) progress to the citizens at home while more and more money sank into the swamp. Afghanistan was not ready to run its own affairs and won’t be anytime soon. It is a place where small advances can be encouraged, but large civilisational jumps can’t be imposed. The same holds true for immigrant populations. It is not enlightened to expect more of people than they can achieve. The individual can be advanced if he is open to it. Masses of people or entire countries will have to take their time.
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 EU Court of Justice has delivered another blow to Hungary last weekend. According to the judges, the already dismantled Hungarian transit zones constituted a “detention,” despite its opening towards the perfectly save Serbia where the immigrants came from. Hungary is castigated for not being helpful enough to perfect strangers in their ambition to start masses of expensive and exhaustive legal processes. EU law demands the individualisation of asylum politics and remains an obstacle to bulk solutions. But while the careless elites and advocates have lost themselves in their legalese, they can still not answer the question: Why should people who have travelled to their border be more privileged or more needing than the millions of people in Africa, Asia and Latin America? And when are they too many?
Angela Merkel has cobbled together a long list of policies to fight the “far-right”. Of course, this is not about the handful of neo-Nazis who are drunk by lunchtime. Nobody in his right mind cares about them.
The new German fanaticism will be flushed through various ministries. In this episode I will run you through the items that belong to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection, the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Defence. Merkel’s goons don’t even shy away from lecturing others about colonialism, which was a fairly mixed period of time with positive and negative aspects.
Angela Merkel has founded a ‘Cabinet Committee for the Fight Against Right-Wing Extremism and Racism.’ On Tuesday they presented their 89-points policy catalogue replete with pure horror. So I translate it for you. Yes, I said 89 points. So this is the first of four videos. Should I fail to reach anybody, I will at least be able to say that I did my best to document the disaster. The points covered in the first video are supposed to be carried out by the Ministry of the Interior. I will also show you the given “goals” mentioned in the document. The government estimates the costs of the policies to be 1.150.000.000 EUR.
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.
With so much things going on, too much to research right now, continue with my series on Kübra Gümüsay, the activist who does not want to be your cleaner.
Our favorite social justice warrior is sharing her insight on freedom, democracy, justice and nice. Because all these things are now one and the same and mean gay marriage, Islam or migration, it is a chance to talk about that sly shift of meaning. Also the villain of our self-governing system, racism, has a definition journey behind itself. Originating in pseudo-genetics it has arrived at today’s system-rattling Halloween-costume and accent-recognition trauma that we are familiar with.
