In October 2010, Angela Merkel told a meeting of her CDU party that attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany had “utterly failed.” Yet a few years later, by welcoming more than one million Muslim freeloaders and jihadists posing as refugees, with no end in sight, she has managed to turn her country and other parts of Western Europe into a multicultural disaster, where Muslims likely will outnumber Europeans in a few decades.

Christian Blex, an AfD state parliamentarian from North Rhine-Westphalia, tweeted scenes from the Damascus bazaar: “Pure everyday life. Modern shops. Women in jeans with and without headscarves. It is hard to believe that thousands of Syrian men are now in Germany and that they also want to bring their families…”
MARCH 10 – Award-winning author Uwe Tellkamp was let go by his publisher, Suhrkamp Verlag, after he questioned Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door migration policy.

Germany is shaped by Christianity.” Seehofer’s remarks prompted an immediate firestorm of criticism from the self-appointed guardians of German multiculturalism, including from Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has repeatedly insisted that “Islam belongs to Germany.” German voters, however, appear to agree with Seehofer. A poll for Focus magazine found that 74% of those surveyed said that Islam does not belong to Germany. Only 6.4% said that Islam definitely belongs to Germany.
