Thursday's HOT MIC
There's little chance that patriotic Germans who can distinguish between the country's crimes during the Hitlerzeit and Frau Kartoffel's unwise open-door policy of admitting "refugees" from hostile, non-Western countries, will finally retire the woman who put the lump into Lumpenproletariat, but one can always hope:
Fears that apathy could boost the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) in an election on Sunday have driven Chancellor Angela Merkel and her main rival to urge their backers to go out and vote. With many voters viewing a fourth term for Merkel as almost inevitable and put off by a turgid campaign - occasionally punctured by heckling and tomato hurling in protest at Merkel's refugee policy - pollsters say turnout may be low.
A GMS poll on Thursday said 34 percent were not planning to vote or were undecided, higher than the 29 percent who did not cast ballots in the last election in 2013. "My request to everyone is that they vote, and vote for those parties that adhere 100 percent to our constitution," Merkel told MDR radio on Thursday, pointing to the AfD.
Translation of words in bold face type: the German constitution, written in the aftermath of the war, includes the so-called Asylrecht, or right of asylum to pretty much anybody who arrives on German soil and claims fear of persecution. This was meant to help make up for the Germans' treatment of Jews, Slavs, gypsies and other "undesirables" during the National Socialist period. It was never dreamed that it would be applied to hordes of Muslim "refugees," fleeing their own poisoned lands, and keen to avail themselves of the bounty of the German welfare state, at the German taxpayers' expense.
The voters have a chance to severely rebuke Merkel for her stupidity, but probably won't. We and the Russians beat all the fight out of the Germans in 1945, and at this point they're all simply ready to lie down and die, as long as they have their free health care to help ease the pain.
