    Then why do so many vote Green and Die Linke?



    Please leave here, I'm declaring this thread a safe space
    Nope. I'll choose whether to leave or not on my own.

    If any culture and ethnic group should be preserved, it is the German people.

    Maybe the Japanese too.

    Germany needs migrants, merkel isn't letting them in out of the kindness of her heart. So it's no surprise that most Germans still support the immigration policy, its a pragmatic rather than philanthropic policy.

    They are the same sort of migrants that fled to America. The Irish fled the Potato famine in the 19th century, Jews fled persecution in the 19th and 20th century, Italians fled poverty in the early 20th century and Eastern Europeans fled war in the mid 20th century.

    The level of qualification required to find a job in the USA in the 19th century and until the 1970s was not the same as in Germany today. Moreover, the immigrants you mention belonged to the broad same western culture; they also spoke or rapidly learnt English.

    The million of "refugees" that have entered Germany are uneducated - even if they are, it's nothing comparable to German standards - and don't speak a word of German. Some people are trying to make us believe that these refugees are going to spontaneously replace retiring engineers in BMW factories. It's a very silly argument.

    Exactly. The Economist has rigorously defended Merkel's open-door policy but has provided very little in the way of making sure these people do not end up being a burden on the German economy.

    Fact is that Germany needs migrants but not just any migrant.

    It's an obvious reaction to a chancellor who has absolutely lost it. Letting in over 1 million people will change Germany in such a big way, it should be put to a referendum. It's such a big change, equivalent in size to the EU ref.

    They've been polling around 15% for a while so this isn't surprising. It doesn't mean much either. No one wants them in power, neither CDU/CSU or SPD. Most likely it will end up being a grand coalition again.

    Whether that's with Merkel at the helm or not is a different story though.

    Whites don't even have a right to exist in our post-racial society. We didn't fight the Nazi's for this remember that!

    Why did we fight them then? well same reason we went to war with Iraq I guess. Money changing hands, Churchill was a bought man who held some grudge against the Germans.

    So let me get this straight..

    If you are a White person and you oppose the destruction of your people you are a fascist?

    Fascism is a natural positive thing then. Survival instincts. How can you not be a fascist knowing what is being done to us?

    If only we prescient souls had been listened to, these past years, and imbeciles like Merkel would climb down! Much suffering lies ahead :sad:

    Yes,people are turning to right wing extremist groups because they feel that they will be the ones to rescue their country when it'll probably just create race wars
    The race wars, that may well come, now, will lead to their countries being 'rescued', as they see it (as well as damaged). If you're at the sharp end of the present migrant fiasco then, frankly, you're unlikely to give a damn, unfortunately. What we have little sense of in the UK is how bad things are

    German interests should always come first in Germany. And then any minorities a distant second.
    Do German-born minorities not exist? Why should a White German-born be treated any better then a non White German-born?

    Have you seen the score of the Greens in Baden-Wurtemberg? They are even crazier than Merkel!

    Germans still have a long way to go.
