Germans take to Berlin streets protesting Merkel immigration policy

CHARLOTTE, NC, November 8, 2015 – If things continue as they are in Germany today, Chancellor Angela Merkel could be out of office before Barack Obama.

Several media sources filed numerous pictures of an estimated 5,000 Germans protesting at an anti-mass migration rally in Berlin Saturday. Many of the photos showed people holding up red cards for Angela Merkel − a soccer reference, held up by the referee when a player is ejected from a game.

While many politicians, including Merkel, continue to spin the recent refugee invasion from the Middle East into Europe as a “humanitarian” effort, the German people aren’t buying it, and for good reason.

Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs cites the small village of Ellwagen as a perfect example of what is happening throughout Germany under Merkel’s current immigration policies.

Geller describes a German army barracks just outside of town, but within walking distance of the city center, as being vacant until refugees began arriving in large numbers this summer. At that time, it was estimated that approximately 500 people would be able to be housed and granted asylum before being processed to other places.

Suddenly, the actual number rose to 10 times that amount, as 5,000 people crammed into the area. Normally, native population is only about 12,000.

The local people did their best to resist, but as soon as they began to stand up for themselves they were quickly accused of being “Nazis.”

Fighting for the survival of your home and your culture earns you the title of “Nazi” but the counter to that is, of course, “Islamophobia.”

Locals complain of refugees walking into stores, taking what they want and then leaving without paying. Initially merchants called police but they stopped after being told to “write up the losses and contact someone at the local municipality to reimburse them.”

Other accounts describe Muslim refugees walking into churches and disrupting services simply because they want to do it.

Citizens of Ellwagen talk openly about “how their town and livelihoods are destroyed by the decision of the government to take in people that are violently opposed and opposite to the German and Christian culture.”

Unlike the urban metropolis of Berlin, Ellwagen is a rural community where “most Germans have no interest in politics, and are law abiding citizens who are now faced with police cars driving any hour of the day due to incidents caused by ‘refugees’”.

With the influx of humanity at the outskirts of town, combined with the intimidation factor of the refugees, many townspeople claim they are now strangers in their home town and will only leave their homes when it is absolutely necessary. Women, especially, do not go out, particularly at night.

Elsewhere, in Berlin angry demonstrators chanted “Merkel must go” and “traitor to the people.” Beatrix von Storch, a member of the European Parliament addressed the crowd saying that Merkel was causing “asylum chaos” in Germany.

Though there were an estimated 40 arrests, reports said that most of those came from several counter-protests which amounted to only about 800 people by comparison.

Pressure appears to be mounting against Merkel and her government. The German newspaper Handelsblatt said the protester’s demands include immediate closure of Germany’s borders and adding Visa requirements for migrants from the Balkan states.

It appears there is a fine line between “humanitarian compassion” and “national suicide” which Angela Merkel apparently cannot figure out.

And so, Western leaders continue to capitulate to Middle Eastern “victimization” and propaganda. Eventually it will come to an end. But by then it just may be too late.
