Meaning to sound alarmist, but probably rather playing Cassandra, I shall play this little quaint piece of a fast disappearing Germany I love; who knows how long Germans are allowed to play instruments publicly - lest it might offend the "permanently offended" (*) those who already seem to rule in the land of Goethe, Schiller and Schubert.
I was never very fond of Berthold Brecht's politics nor his reputed love for "delegating his work to his women", but loved his rather accessible poetry and some quotable quotes he left us, like this one:
After the uprising of the 17th of June
The Secretary of the Writers' Union
Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?
Nach dem Aufstand des 17. Juni
Ließ der Sekretär des Schriftstellerverbands
In der Stalinallee Flugblätter verteilen
Auf denen zu lesen war, daß das Volk
Das Vertrauen der Regierung verscherzt habe
Und es nur durch verdoppelte Arbeit
zurückerobern könne. Wäre es da
Nicht doch einfacher, die Regierung
Löste das Volk auf und
Wählte ein anderes?
Brecht's words seem a fitting introduction to this video, which makes me sooooooo angry, that I do not trust myself with a personal commentary on it. I will quote though one of the evicted Germans (because that's what the video is about ie how the German government chases Germans out of their homes to make place for the invaders**). Towards the end he says:
"!!! THANK YOU FRAU MERKEL !!!"
Thanks for the sub-titling of this video go to the tireless Eeyore at Vladtepes
(*) To learn who rules over you,
simply find out who you are
not allowed to criticise. "
(**) According to a French TV report from TV Libertés, France's ruler, Qatar, has ordered French politicians to cease calling the invading Muslim masses "migrants" any longer. "Refugee" is the mot de rigueur. This report then bravely refused to obey the masters of the present socialist Government (they are a new and refreshingly outspoken TV station) and gave the following reason:
"Refugee" is someone we HAVE to take in and look after.
"Migrants" are new-comers which the host country can control.
"Invaders" is what we have now.
