"A record 25,000 anti-Islamist protesters marched through
the east German city of Dresden on Monday, many holding banners with
anti-immigrant slogans, and held a minute's silence for the victims of
last week's attacks in France.
Chancellor Angela Merkel and other senior German
politicians have called for people to stay away from rallies organised
by PEGIDA, or Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West -
people who Merkel has said have "hatred in their hearts."
On Tuesday she will take part in a vigil in Berlin organised by a Muslim group to remember the 17 people killed in Islamist attacks at the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket in Paris.
About 7,000 more protesters than last week turned out for the march, a police spokesman said.
Leader Lutz Bachmann set out PEGIDA's demands for the
drawing up a new immigration law,
immigrants to integrate and
making sure that Islamists who leave Germany
to fight are not allowed back into the country.
"We are getting more support each week," co-founder Kathrin Oertel told Reuters.
"We are against all violence that is religiously motivated
whether Muslim or Christian...People have been confronted by it now
and are thinking about it more."
many dressed in black, waved the black, red and gold German flag. One
carried a banner saying: "With our deepest sympathies for the families
of the Paris terror victims."
Mostly men over
50, many chanting of "Wir sind das Volk" or "We are the people", they
said they were more concerned about increasing immigration than the
events in France.
Their banners read "Stop
multiculturalism", "I'm not a Nazi but everyone who enjoys our
hospitality must integrate and respect our culture" and "Stop asylum
fraud - every one is too many, go home!"
One carried a Christian cross illuminated with fairylights. Eugen Peuke, 61, was at his second protest.
"It (multiculturalism) doesn't work. Immigration is a
problem. They steal. I just don't want them here. The government isn't
listening," he said.
shouted "PEGIDA, you're racist" and "Germany is ashamed of you", and in
Berlin and the western city of Duesseldorf the rallies were dwarfed by
counter-protesters. Germany has some of the world's
most liberal asylum rules, partly due to its Nazi past, and last year
the number of asylum seekers, mainly from the Middle East, doubled to
about 200,000 from 2013."
"Germany believes 550 of its own citizens have travelled to Syria and Iraq to join extremist groups such as Islamic State. Intelligence chief Hans-Georg Maassen told German TV on Monday that as many as 180 had returned home. "A majority of them have probably been radicalised and brutalised," he warned."...

(Comment: It's really, really bad to "defy" a politician.)
Governments of Germany, Britain and other EU states "are actively
promoting the destruction of their own societies, in the interests of
globalisation and the elimination of national identities and cultures."
1/7/15, "The European Civil War: Elites vs People in a Fight for Survival," Gerald Warner, Breitbart London
"Europe is in a state of war: specifically, a civil war between the
self-appointed elites who have destroyed much of the continent’s
freedom, culture and prosperity and the insurgent populations they have
deceived and enslaved. This is a war to the death; only one side can
survive the outcome....
The people of Germany, like those of many other European countries, are
feeling increasingly desperate about the imposition upon them of mass
immigration – an inflow that is unending and which is largely composed
of Muslims who are hostile to Christianity and the indigenous culture.
Well, you might think, that is a serious situation; but fortunately
Germany is a representative democracy and when citizens make their
concerns known to their representatives, the government will surely take
steps to help them. Not so. German Chancellor Angela Merkel used her New Year's Eve address to vilify her fellow citizens in the Pegida
movement who are protesting against the Islamisation of the West.
According to their chancellor, these people who simply wish to live
in a country that is recognisably Germany “have prejudice, coldness,
even hatred in their hearts”. Yet the number of asylum seekers in
Germany rose to 200,000 in the past year – quadruple the figure for 2012
– and immigration reached a 20-year high. There are similar situations
But the governments of Germany, Britain and other EU states are not
simply behaving incompetently and allowing their populations to be
overrun through their ineptness. On the contrary, they are actively
promoting the destruction of their own societies, in the interests of
globalisation and the elimination of national identities and cultures.
Merkel has mobilised all the forces at her disposal in an attempt to
suppress the incipient rebellion against liberal totalitarianism. All
the usual suspects have rallied to the regime: the state broadcaster,
Germany’s legacy parties, the financial establishment, the churches…The
Catholic Church, whose adherents are the victims of mass murder in
Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Nigeria and every other country where jihadism is
running rampant, switched off the lights of Cologne Cathedral to obscure
the Pegida marchers who are trying to prevent a further influx of
Muslims into Europe.
Turkeys voting for Christmas? Yes, because senior clerics in Germany
are concerned only with trousering the massive handouts the government
lavishes on registered denominations: rendering unto Caesar is the
priority of organised religion in Germany. What Frau Merkel wants, she
Naturally, Rentamob has organised counter-demonstrations, the ones
that will be given prominence by the BBC. Violent leftists are trying to
prevent the Pegida marches from spreading beyond Dresden to the rest of
Germany, where polls show one German in three would like to join them.
It is the Marxist and Anarchist thugs’ responsibility to prevent that,
at all costs, by intimidation.
The establishment will try to laugh off the notion that such
disparate elements as politicians, bankers and far leftists could be
engaged in a joint enterprise – a crazed conspiracy theory, surely?
Consider, then, the remarks made by Peter Sutherland, the “Father of
Globalisation”, Bilderberg organiser and uber-Europhile to a House of
Lords committee in 2012.
Migration, the Well-Lunched One declared, was a “crucial dynamic for
economic growth” in some EU nations “however difficult it may be to
explain this to the citizens of those states”. Declining populations in
countries like Germany was the “key argument” for “the development of
multicultural states”. He condemned Europeans “who still nurse a sense
of our homogeneity and difference from others. And that’s precisely what
the European Union, in my view, should be doing its best to undermine.”
That is plain speaking. A member of the innermost elite confirms the
EU’s role as undermining homogeneity. Europe, formerly the most
civilised entity in the world, is to be subsumed into a globalised pool
of cheap labour exploited by large corporations and regulated by
bureaucrats. All distinctive culture, national identity, the
Judaeo-Christian ethic and everything that contributed so greatly to
human civilisation are to be expunged in favour of profit for the few
and state regulation for the many.
Such soft totalitarianism might seem less frightening than Nazism or
Communism, but the end product will be in every way as nightmarish. It
must be defeated. Until now, the populations of Britain, Germany and
other EU states have behaved like somnambulists, passively accepting the
projected New Order.
The one consolation is that some people, though still only a
minority, are waking up. The movements expressing their concerns –
Pegida, UKIP and others – are Davids facing the Goliath of EU
totalitarianism. The forces ranged against them are massive and endowed
with all the resources of the state and plutocracy. Yet they are the
only hope of saving the nations of Europe from cultural extinction.
Their one potential strength is popular support. Will you be with them?" via Free Rep.
Comment: The same is happening in the US so of course we are with the Europeans.
