Germany's Jihad On Freedom Of Speech

Tyler Durden's picture

Via Jijeta Uniyal of The Gatestone Institute,

  • Germany's police and legal systems, which took weeks to prosecute anyone in the city of Cologne in the wake of the New Year's Eve mass sexual assaults, and then closed most of the cases after a year-long investigation, immediately swung into action against a group of small-town revellers.
  • In Merkel's Germany, you are allowed to walk free after setting fire to a synagogue, but not for mocking the Chancellor's "sacred" refugee policy.
  • While German police are busy raiding homes across the country and targeting citizens who write "hateful" or "offensive" Facebook postings, mosques in German are openly preaching anti-Semitism and ISIS-style jihadism.

Carnival in Germany is a time for some light-hearted fun, fancy costumes and political satire. This year, many German cities held traditional float parades on Rosenmontag, or Rose Monday, many of which depicted political themes. Images of U.S. President Donald Trump took centre stage in many float processions, in some instances with his decapitated head held up high by the Statue of Liberty, in the style of an ISIS beheading.

Other floats went after nationalist European leaders and right-wing parties. In Düsseldorf, President Trump was shown standing next to a blond Hitler, joined by France's Marine Le Pen, and the Netherlands' Geert Wilders.

Germany prides in its traditional Narrenfreiheit ("jesters' freedom") to mock the high and mighty. This year, Germany's state-run Deutsche Welle news agency proudly proclaimed, "German jesters take on kings for 2017 Carnival."

To those objecting to some of these violent depictions of President Trump, prominent German journalist Christian Thiels reminded the public that, "It's called 'freedom of satire'. You don't have to like it or find it tasteful but it is part of free speech."

In this very spirit of "freedom", some residents of the sleepy German town of Bad Bergzabern thought they could mock Chancellor Angela Merkel and her refugee policy.

A local non-political group showed up with a float showing Chancellor Merkel behind prison bars, with the caption: "This is how traitors end up." It is German equivalent of the popular U.S election slogan used by many Trump supporters for former U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton: "Lock her up."

A police complaint was filed the following day. The day after that, police rolled into action, and the State Attorney of Landau district opened an investigation against the subversive "miscreants."

Germany's police and legal systems, which took weeks to prosecute anyone in the city of Cologne in the wake of the New Year's Eve mass sexual assaults, and then closed most of the cases after a year-long investigation, immediately swung into action against a group of small-town revellers.

Germany's state-run Südwestrundfunk broadcaster wrote:

"The float showed the head of the Chancellor behind the prison bars. According to a police statement, by Tuesday many residents had complained about the float and a case had been filed. The State Attorney's office in Landau is examining if the depiction of the Chancellor is a punishable offense."

 

"The float was registered by a private group from South-Palatinate Kapellen-Drusweiler. The office-holders of the group told SWR that they do not belong to any right-wing group, and only wanted it to be a thought-provoking exercise."

Before German law enforcement could make any assessments, the mayor's office of Bad Bergzabern issued a statement that from now on, all Carnival floats were first to apply for mayoral approval.

Meanwhile, in January 2017, the regional court of Wuppertal acquitted Arab arsonists guilty of setting fire to a local synagogue in 2104, declaring it a legitimate political protest to draw "attention to the Gaza conflict" with Israel, and "deemed the attack not to be motivated by antisemitism."

In Merkel's Germany, you are allowed to walk free after setting fire to a synagogue, but not after mocking the Chancellor's "sacred" refugee policy.

While German police are busy raiding homes across the country, targeting citizens who make "hateful" or "offensive" Facebook postings, mosques in Germany are openly preaching anti-Semitism and ISIS-style jihadism.

Merkel's Germany is policing Carnival floats and Facebook posts, when it might better spend its time and taxpayer money securing the borders and cracking down on recruitment to jihad.

Well shit, they can't prosecute them until after they do it, surely?

I take offense to Germany calling itself a Republic which is suppose to allow it's citizens to freely engage in such acts as coming up with demeaning characters on a Carnival float to a country that guarded it's ass for decades.  My 2 years in the Fulda Gap was for shit. Better to have stayed home and let the Warsaw Pact forces rumble across the country. At least now, the Russia held state of Germany would not have allowed the Islamic hoard to destroy the country.

Wait until the muzzies begin to make inroads into the German political landscape in a generation or so.  The resident Zios will be sooooryyyy that they pushed for this idiotic agenda. 

The most hillarious thing in sad way will be a military alliance between Germany and Iran in 20-30 years.  That'll be something to behold in a TV-ratings kind of way.  I hope the Zios will have their assholes all lubed up for that.

"New Year's Eve mass sexual assaults" never took place according to German police.

Gatestone is an insult to intelligence.

Germany is corrupt to the point of staging terrorism, Gladio thrived there.

Gatestone never mentions the fact that British and German intelligence created "Islamic" terrorism and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Conclusion: Gatestone works for Rothschild.

They did take place and you can read everything about it in the official police reports.

"Germany is corrupt to the point of obfuscating terrorism, mass rapings and violence of refugees."

(Fixed this for you.)

A year from now the EU will be collapsing and millions of maggot invaders, formerly known as refugees will be setting up their new European Caliphate. Sharia Law will rule over the new Caliphate that was formerly known as the EU. Christian and Jewish "Kuffar Europeans" will be desperately trying to get into Russia. President Putin will need to build a new iron curtain right now, this time a bigger and better Trump style wall to keep out Western Europeans! Serbs should be welcomed into Russia as brothers but all other Europeans should be kept the hell OUT. They all get what they deserve. Citizens of the former EU and stupid Ukie boneheads better learn how to: speak Arabic, obey Sharia Law, swear by the beard, cook good halal meals for Islamic guests, hand over their pretty young women and children to maggot perverts and be ready to pay them Jizya taxes on time with a big smile on their faces. These are all things that obedient infidels will be required to do. And they better not forget what Merkel told them about Islam being peaceful, loving and above all tolerant!

Read my post below. I don't think ALL Europeans are to blame. The traitors in their midst (politicians, bureaucrats, academics, etc.) who rammed the 'EU project' down everyone else's throats which they received huge bribes for doing so, especially politicians, are those who are to blame for this mess. The Euro currency mess is just the 'icing on the cake' or the 'tip of the iceberg' (take your pick) as what was wrought by these traitors is mind-boggling in the extreme.

Also, research VAT, Value-added Tax, which was the vehicle by which all this was accomplished. It is the diabolical tax thought up by diabolical minds - literally. It is totally evil as it is thoroughly regressive in nature (the poorer you are - the more of your income goes in VAT), and shows how completely depraved the people who promote and profit from the EU really are.

I also try to remember that Germans turned their backs on the men who fought bravely and against great odds for their country in WW2.  The US exterminated many of them in prison camps where they were kept for at least 6 days with no shelter, water or food.  The elite troops were often taken out and shot.  During the big push Germans who surrendered were disarmed lined up and often shot.  Russia marched off a few million of those brave men after they surrendered and worked/tortured them to death (the were never heard of again).

Yet today's German's talk of those men as if they are ashamed of them and they do not honor them in any way (from my knowledge). The German's do not demand trials, answers, investigations or punishment for the war crimes against there best.  Why would a man fight for Germany of today considering that.

BrownCoat's picture

@ Blankone,

When you say "elite troops" are you talking SS? SS had a penchant for killing captives (e.g. Malmedy massacre). There were reports that German prisoners would kill the SS soldiers themselves. 

"Why would a man fight for [country name] of today?"

We know why. But should they? Did the millions of soldiers who died in WWI achieve anything for their countries? Nope.

Blankone's picture

There are the SS intelligence officers of the movies and there are the SS crack fighting troops of the field. The field troops were the bravest of the war.

Here is some of what the noble allies did to unarmed prisoners.

http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/SoldiersK...

But is not just these crack troops.  German troops fought against greater odds.  They were promised the geneva conventions would be followed if they surrendered and they were lied to.  And the german soldier was abandoned forever after the war.  The german people will not even demand answers or that history record the truth about the genocide of these germans after and in the final months of the war.

Some habits die hard,eh? Nazism by proxy. If the state can't actually call themselves Nazis because of the laws instituted long ago when the was a West and an East Germany, then flood the place with those who have no shame and no guilt at carrying out their wishes! I feel sorry for the 1000s of Jewish people who thought Germany was safe to return to and live peaceful lives. I never ever thought it was and, sadly, I think this proves me right.

Please note: it is not Germans who commit these crimes. Most Germans are decent, moral, and sympathetic people who abhor what has been put in their midst. It is now glaringly obvious, even to 'law-abiding' Germans that their 'government' and especially the shadowy and sinister 'Frau Merkel' who are the German people's enemy! The State here is the enemy of the people. Perhaps a return to what happened in 1918-1919 is called for.

From your own source:

"According to court documents, he was convicted of more than 40 criminal charges between 1976 and 2013. He was denied permanent Canadian residency because of his criminal record."

Oh yeah, blame on the Jews the criminal record of your darling immigrant.

If you are a Canuck, I can understand your failure to understand the root cause of the problem, given that the average IQ in Canada is 16.

Gotta give the muslims credit, they're using the very principles of democracy (something they oppose in their religion) very effectively against the western world in order to ingrain and then spread their infestation. They know the snowflakes will fight hard to quell personal freedoms in the name of inclusionist policies and those feel good multicultural vibes. 

Very effective, and apparently not slowing down in Europe yet either.

Ignoring the year 2104... anyway this information is not correct. The two adult arsonists were sentenced to 2 years / 1 year 11 months in prison, but the sentence was suspended because the molotov coctails did not even reach the synagogue, or hurt anybody. A suspended sentence is something completely different than an acquittal.

But I know facts are optional.

Regarding the Merkel to prison parade car, I would BET $100 that noone will go to prison for it.

Not.
