Thousands of people have gathered in the eastern German city of Dresden for the latest in a series of anti-Islam demonstrations that have alarmed the country’s leftist ‘dhimmi’ politicians.
AP (h/t Maria J) Police estimated that some 17,500 people attended Monday’s rally by the group calling itself Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West, or PEGIDA — organized this week as a carol-singing gathering in front of the Semperoper opera house.
That would make it the biggest gathering since the weekly protests started in October. An estimated 4,500 people demonstrated in Dresden against PEGIDA, while some 12,000 protested against it in Munich.
PEGIDA’S organizers insist they are protesting only against extremism and not against immigrants or Islam itself, but the demonstrations have received support from far-right groups, prompting concerns that anti-foreigner sentiment might be rising.
Vlad Tepes Dresden marches are still taking place and are growing to the point where governments and mass media have given up ignoring them and now are trying to demonize them with the usual slurs.
But, inevitably, the demonstrations also bring out the left wing fascists who support the Islamization of Germany.
Here is a group which for all intents and purposes are ‘ANTI-FA’ and typically are behaving in ways they accuse Germans opposing sharia and Salafist groups of acting, but who always have peaceful and rational demonstrations.
