For the quick ones: not much. However, I would be remiss to not talk about it given that everybody pretends that we had much of a choice and that we as a people were respected as the sovereignty in our own homes.
The pro-forma party leader of Merkel’s CDU stepped down following the turmoils of the Thuringen Prime Minister revocation. The issue went out of control because the CDU had a non-cooperation resolution that would not allow any member to work with either AfD or SED (currently renamed to LINKE). We saw profuse Stalinist fake apologies for innocuous acts like congratulating a newly elected state prime minister of the “respectable” pseudo-libertarian party FDP. Now the bets are also open again on who the person will be that follows Merkel as a Chancellor. Maybe La Merkel – Allah may bless her and fear her wrath – must also revoke her aged, aaaaaaged announcement to retire from politics.
Yesterday, the German state of Thuringen found a new Prime Minister in Thomas Kemmerich of the pseudo-libertarian party FDP. After Angela Merkel let it known from South Africa that she was not pleased and that he should be sacked the outrage crescendo reached deafening levels and saw the man resign today. But it was not just her verdict that a vote for Kemmerich in coinciding with a congruent vote from the dark Lord-and-his-mother-be-with-us party AfD were “unforgivable”. The media saw the rise of fascism upon us and a woman of the SED (now renamed as LINKE) threw a bunch of flowers to his feet. And can’t even go through the backstabbing and flipflopping here, but the destruction of a once fairly free country is palpable and the conflicts continue to escalate.
Rainald Becker, the editor in chief of public broadcaster ARD and its “Coordinator for Politics, Society and Culture”, tries to whitewash the party that ran the East German dictatorship. If you believe the party LINKE were the heir of the SED, you have understood nothing, he says. But have you understood nothing? You have. But you must know some details to recognize why LINKE is indeed not the heir of the SED. It IS the SED!
