Angela Merkel is in a world of hurt, think of her as the Hillary Clinton of Europe. Except, of course, Merkel actually got elected to lead a country.
Chancellor Merkel is the foremost proponent of open borders in Europe. She’s allowed hundreds of thousands of “Syrian refugees” into Germany and the results have been a disaster. Crime rates have skyrocketed all over Germany and women are no longer safe on the streets or in their homes.
Last year, in Cologne, during the city’s New Year’s Eve celebration thousands of women were sexually assaulted by Muslim mobs. You can count the number of prosecutions resulting from that outrage on one hand.
The German people have had enough. In recent regional elections in Berlin voters crushed Merkel’s conservative Democrat party, voting him out of office by a large margin. Unlike American Democrats, Merkel actually admitted she screwed up. She pointed out that the migrant crisis could’ve been avoided, that she made mistakes in supporting and in a phrase that must have really stuck in her crawl, she referred to multiculturalism as “a living lie.”
Certainly no American Democrat would be caught dead saying that.
Barack Obama, faced with the failure of his signature legislation, ObamaCare, faced with the disaster that he created in the Middle East, faced with his “part-time job recovery,” and faced with loss of the House, loss of the Senate, and Donald Trump moving into the Oval Office, has done just what you would expect Barack Obama to do. Unlike Angela Merkel, apologizing for her errors, Obama has basically been on a “F You Tour” Proclaiming What a Great Job He’s Done for America.
Whether or not Merkel really backs down from her policies and changes the direction as the German people are demanding remains to be seen. She does appear to be attempting to stem the Muslim invasion of Germany by improving border control. She’s also been speeding up deportation of “failed asylum applicants.”
I think these efforts will be shown to be half-hearted and too little, too late. She is too invested in turning Germany, and Europe, into a Muslim paradise. Thankfully, Donald Trump is just 9 days away from reversing that possibility here in the U.S.
