Does this prove that Trump’s election is starting a downward spiral for liberals? Is the world starting to reject political correctness?
Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel, who is running for re-election, turned a full 360! Previously she allowed millions of undocumented migrants from Muslim-majority countries into Germany, but, last week, she announced that Germany would begin banning the burka.
Then, this mighty minister took things a step further amd refused to wear a traditional head covering during her visit with a Saudi Arabian prince. She firmly stated that women have as much right as men do to wear whatever they choose.
“The right to choose your own clothing is a right shared by men and women alike. It annoys me, when women are to be pushed into the Abaya,”
Reports reveal that the woman below was arrested last week in Saudi Arabia for posting a picture of herself without a burka on social media:

As pictures of Leyen, without a hijab, hit social media, some Saudis were outraged and went on Twitter to blast her.

One tweet stated:
“The German Defense Minister: not wearing the hijab in Saudi was deliberate. This is an insult to Saudi Arabia,”
“Political Correctness has been overridden”
The defense minister has admitted a complicity of politics in the crisis of confidence of democracy. To express oneself politically correctly is in itself no civilization achievement, says von der Leyen.
Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen (CDU) has shared a responsibility for the current crisis of confidence in democracy. The grand coalition had led to a “slowness of explanation” with less violent and lively debates, the deputy CDU chairman told the news magazine “Spiegel”. The crisis was also promoted by political correctness. “Yes, the political correctness has been overridden,” said von der Leyen, “the social pressure to respond homogeneously was too high.”
There is a difference between political correctness and civilizing achievements, “a limit below which people are simply insulted, oppressed, offended, or verbally discriminated against”. In the American election campaign, this limit was underscored clearly: “We are in a negotiating process, and I think it is worth fighting for what is actually a civilization achievement.” –Frankfurter Algemeine Politik
Leyen, who was decked out in a crisp dark pantsuit, stated that she “respects the customs and traditions of the country. [In Germany] one is free to choose his or her attire accordingly.”
How stupid are these Arabians? Do they actually think everyone will agree with them? They have a lot of disappointment coming their way now that Trump is president!
