Too Late, Germany Realizes Its Mistake

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's disastrous decision to throw open an essentially defenseless western Europe to hordes of military-age males from the Islamic ummah will go down in history as one of Christendom's greatest blunders, either a triumph of wishful childless-feminist thinking or a malevolent act of epic proportions. So this statement by new Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, while welcome, is way too little, and far too late:

New Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said Islam does not belong to Germany, and set out hardline immigration policies in his first major interview since being sworn in this week, as he sought to see off rising far-right challengers.

Note that in the European media -- and soon enough in the American -- any conservative defender of tradition is now labeled "far-right." As I've often said on Twitter (@dkahanerules), on the Left, "treason is the highest form of patriotism."

His comments put him on a collision course with Chancellor Angela Merkel, who on Friday reiterated her long-held view that Islam was a part of Germany, even if the country was traditionally characterized by Christianity and Judaism.

“Islam does not belong to Germany,” Seehofer, a member of Merkel’s CSU Bavarian allies who are further to the right than her own Christian Democrats (CDU), told Bild newspaper in an interview published on Friday. Seehofer said he would push through a “master plan for quicker deportations” and classify more states as ‘safe’ countries of origin, which would make it easier to deport failed asylum seekers.

Seehofer is particularly keen to show his party is tackling immigration ahead of Bavaria’s October regional election, when the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) is expected to enter that state assembly. “Of course the Muslims living here do belong to Germany,” Seehofer told Bild, but added that Germany should not give up its own traditions or customs, which have Christianity at their heart.

“My message is: Muslims need to live with us, not next to us or against us,” he said.

Good luck with that. Meanwhile, the new term for the legions of "refugees" from Africa and the Middle East flooding into all corners of western Europe, by the way, is "asylum spoofers," as only a handful of them are genuinely seeking asylum from anything other than their own cultural dysfunction and murderous ineptitude. And yet Germany is stuck with its postwar doctrine of Asylrecht, put into place in the wake of the Holocaust and now being used as a weapon against it (and the Jews) by people even more anti-Semitic than the Germans used to be.

Not that the East German Mutti Merkel will be dissuaded from her coup d'etat against the Federal Republic she nominally leads, but is actually busily betraying and destroying:
