Germany Just Began Cheating on its Husband
September 12, 2015

I’ve been trying to think of a good metaphor for the mood in Germany, and I think I might have found it.

Germany just began cheating on her husband, Jean-Claude. For decades, Germany’s been trapped in a lackluster marriage. … Just recently there was a nasty dispute with the Greek neighbors in which most of the town took sides against Germany and made her feel awful just for insisting on basic rules.

And then, along came Ahmed, the dark-haired stranger from the East. Germany feels alive again. The stranger can’t believe his luck, and constantly showers Germany with reverent praise for her generosity. Ahmed is so in touch with his emotions, unlike Jean-Claude, and he needs help. He needs her. The whole town admires Germany for her kind-heartedness. Germany feels better about herself than she has in years. For the first time in decades, Germany feels wanted, needed. Germany feels alive, really alive.

Now of course many of Germany’s friends are ambivalent. They are happy that Germany’s happy, but of course they’re concerned about the long term: “Germany, shouldn’t you be thinking of your children instead of your handsome new lover’s? What do you really know about him? Do you really think you and he have a real future together? I don’t want to sound snobbish, but is he really going to fit in to your social circle? Aren’t you a little concerned that he doesn’t speak your language and has no job? What about his religious beliefs? You’re pretty secular, but he seems to be pretty devout. And most of all, what if Jean-Claude finds out?”

To which Germany responds: “Why are you trying to spoil this golden moment in my life? I’ve never felt more full of energy and optimism. So many people have come up to me and told me they admire what I’m doing for Ahmed. For once, I’m acting only out of pure compassion and love, not calculation. I know Ahmed and I will face some obstacles, but there’s no problem we can’t over come together, side-by-side, over the decades. Compassion conquers all!” …

    Germany is making a huge mistake, because Ahmed can not dance anywhere near as well as Jean Claude.

  2. Israel imported the Ethiopians in the aftermath of the UN resolution that Zionism was a form of racism. Germany suffered a image disaster with the Greeks ect. Now it mounts a PR blitzkrieg by letting in people who are obviously going to be a millstone round Germany’s neck . The refugees are being let in for purely moral reasons, Merkel has made it clear

    “Those who are not fleeing political persecution or war but are coming to us out of economic need will not be able to stay in Germany. However difficult their personal life may be, this is the truth and we don’t shy away from saying that,” she said.

    So arguing that this is not going to work out misses the point, which is to do it despite the lack of any economic advantage for Germany. Public relations cold fusion.

    Which is why the media are focusing their cameras on strapping young men.

    Except they’re not are they.

    The media are trying to hide the young men and focus exclusively on the mothers with children.

    Because the media are targeting the most maternal women for empathy manipulation – like they always do.

    It was to be expected, as Germany earns more than Jean-Claude, and that’s after she subsidizes Jean-Claude’s business. And there is the matter of all those affairs that went on for years and years Jean-Claude had with his African mistresses.

  6. Germany is hoping that if she feigns sufficent passion for Ahmet and his extended family, everyone will forget about how cruel she was to Aaron in her youth.

    Yes that is very close to the truth, but in the Anglo Saxon world mainstream pundits can't understand, and are trying to give analyses that portray Merkel is as making a virtue of demographic necessity.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baghdad_Railway

    This modern version, the Baghdad to Berlin Express, is aimed improving Germany's soft power. Germany is now where war-wary Germans, women especially want it to be, cocooned within friendly powers as a nuclear -free defence freeloader, it needs a goody two shoes image to get away with that.

  7. Germany also has Daddy Issues. And a tribe of grief-therapists who characteristically compound the shame father Adolph brought upon his children. Cause of course the point of a grief-therapist is to make sure every bit of grief that money can buy is evoked. And nothing assuages a guilty conscience like giving away a fortune to wretched beggars.

    Come to think, maybe the much-anticipated Jewish backlash against settling these ravenous Muslims in neighborly Europe is never going to come, because their grudge about Adolph etc. yet has a more visceral hold on them than the relatively remote possibility that the pitchforks will be coming out, and watching Germany abolish itself cannot in good conscience be opposed. Of course, that would presume that Jews care more about Jewish history than German or French or English history, or that they have a nice and tidy second home somewhere else.

    It should be obvious by now – but, alas, of course it isn’t to the people who rule over us – that this present crisis plaguing Europe cannot, in any way, be called a crisis of ‘migration’. Actually, it is a dispute over the possession of the soil of Europe between the indigenes and those who seek to wrest the land from the indigenes – and as apparent yesterday, are prepared to use force and violence toward that end.

    If this is a marriage, the German “wife” is more like a Caitlyn Jenner, if you get my drift.

    Seriously, thanks for the blog tip. The only way to understand what’s going on is to read blogs that report from what it’s like on the ground, and which translate French/German articles. Such as Galliawatch. (No, I’m not a relative.)

    The 9/17 entry reports on rapes and pimping in the invasion shelters. But there’s no real proof, except what women say, so nobody can do anything. Unlike American universities where the word of one addled exhibitionist constitutes ironclad proof. In fact, I think the girls and women in the invasion shelters really are being raped. Maybe they should carry their mattresses around and paint on them in big letters: EMMA, HELP US.

    What Hammel is joking about is actually mass child abuse over the whole of Western Europe.

    1. Children brainwashed from birth by schools and media that being racist is the ultimate sin; and if their parents are SJWs from them too.

    2. Predators from certain ethnic groups who specifically target girls around 11-13 years old because they’re easier to manipulate and who specifically use the anti-racist brainwashing as a tool of that manipulation.

    3. Adults and institutions from the native population who refuse to protect these girls from these predators – the way they would if the predators were white – because accusations of racism are more important.

    Adult "liberals" can be as naïve as children. Remember the case of the fake asylum seeker from Africa who knowingly infected scores of Polish women with HIV because, as many admitted, they thought it might be racist to turn him down or wear a condom.

    A metaphor for what is going to happen now to Germany?

    Simon Mol had been a sports journalist on a free trip to Poland when he claimed political asylum from persecution in both Ghana and the Cameroon, then made a good career out of telling all Poles that they were racist. Really; exactly that.

    He was ugly and domineering, the women said. There is also a suspicion that he was attempted to rid himself of HIV by passing it on to others, as African folk medicine suggests.

    He rejected requests to take an HIV Test as racist whilst knowing he was HIV positive: "The accusation of being HIV positive is the latest weapon that as an African your enemy can raise against you".

    **When I looked this up a few years ago there were a number of polish blogs that discussed it in English. A Polish newspaper went to Africa to discover what a fraud he was. (He died of HIV eventually.)

    Germany was not considered the most anti-Semitic nation in the 19th Century, that was France. Many, many German Jews who were awarded the Iron Cross went to the gas chambers with their medals hoping their past devotion and service to Germany would protect them. It did not. Hitler only protected his old company commander, Jewish. Everyone else was exterminated.

    Anti-Semitism was most a feature of AUSTRIAN and specifically, Viennese politics, before Germany was defeated in WWI. Which it was, decisively, the men at the front ran out of food, clothing, men (about 50% casualty rates), ammo, everything. They were in rags. This was just not shown in the home front which remained remote from the War hence "stabbed in the back" instead of the reality of the British getting VASTLY better at fighting as they rebuilt their shattered professional Army mostly wiped out in Belgium in Sept. 1914; and the Germans suffering their own attrition by a refusal to retreat to defense in depth across the Rhine as everyone outside the bubble of Hindenberg's Spa HQ urged.

    Germany suffered a unique set of circumstances: long independent nations conquered by Absolutist Prussia, then brutally suppressed by the Bismarck KulturKampf that led to no other institution but the Kaiser and Junckers around in Germany, and the shattering of the Kaiser by WWI (revealing his general incompetence at pretty much everything). Thus a lunatic and deranged group could gain and hold power by murder squads; with nothing to oppose them internally. [Germany's best play in 1934 would have been to arm the Poles, Hungarians, Baltics, etc. against Stalin and point them east, saying "have fun boys" and getting the Allies to pay for it.]

    Germany's foremost 19th Century philosopher, Nietsche, broke with Wagner over the latter's anti-Semitism. Nietsche considered it a sign of intellectual and moral weakness.

    "There were high rates of anti semitism in Germany, whatever you feel about such things, you cannot deny that this can only about if the people they were against were truly different to them, and I think they were."

    If it is about looking different, than Germans should be even more racist towards Syrians because Syrians on average are darker than Ashkenazis and look even more different from Germans in phenotype. After all Syrians are 100 percent Middle Eastern in ancestry while Ashkenazis are only about 50 percent Middle Eastern.

    Syrians are dark swarthy enough that Jeb Bush's son George P. Bush can pass for one of them.

  20. Simon Sheppard writes about a concept called Affection Beneath:

    Men love women; women love children; children love pets. You can “love down”, have affection for that beneath you but not above. Women cannot love men like men love women. They can only truly love children and pets.

    But in the global pecking order, immigrants are “beneath” European women, somewhat like pets or children. And since they have such animosity towards their own men, it’s like giving the finger to them. And they can “rescue” an immigrant.

    I wonder just how long all this would last if there were 500,000 unaccompanied, single reproductive age women pouring across the border that were the equivalent in looks and bodies? “We want our jobs at Jezebel writing click bait!!”

    A single woman typically can’t even get a travel visa unless she can prove some sort of tie that binds her back in her country like children left behind and owning a house.

    If you want to jump start an economy let about a million single women in. Even better, give them free boob jobs. The local men would rise to the occasion (no pun intended) and find a way to pay for these women, establish households, create all sorts of new commerce. And all without welfare. If the birthrate is so awful, why not import a bunch of “birthers”?

    Chesterton called tradition democracy of the dead. Caring about tradition means caring about history, which is different than finding histories interesting, and I suppose in terms of studying history, caring about history in this sense would reflexively favor hagiography. There's a pragmatic case to be made against preventing watershed events in history, and that case is always worth making. But in the long run we're all dead. Only a certain regard for the past is going to make people care about a far-off future that descendants they will never know are going to face, care about it like a duty thats has nothing to do with pragmatism. Point being, I don't think a lot of Jews feel that kind of attachment to countries that have always been Christian, and for so long were proudly Christian. When you think about it, Jews must be in the grip of one very powerful sentiment to not speak up while anti-Semitic hordes barge into their resident countries. I don't think which sentiment that would be is a big mystery. Jews are famously vested in their own history, which begins with the tradition of a profoundly vindictive God, and Nietzsche said Man made God in his image.

  26. What I’d like to know from a German point of view, is how and why the previous round of turkish immigration is viewed.

    Id say the primary complaints are welfare based, not based on criminal behavior, and somewhat based on culture. Neutral on the economy.

    As opposed to our experience with blacks, which has been positive on culture, bad on welfare, bad on crime. Or the post 68 immigrant experience, which is been good on welfare, good on crime (unz’s point on hispanic crime), good on the economy, neutral to bad on culture.

    And whether it was good on the economy.

    My quick reading of “Germany abolishes itself” seems mostly about welfare, very second on culture.

    I and many other Germans regard it as a mistake on the whole. Admittedly there's a non-trivial part of Turkish immigrants who are well integrated (and some groups like the Alevis seem to do comparatively well)...but there's a large Turkish underclass that is definitely a burden on the social safety net. Crime isn't that important a factor...though there's the occasional case when some unlucky German gets beaten to death by Turkish proles for some depressingly trivial reason (like not giving them 20 cent for cigarettes or trying to mediate in a fight). The cultural element is getting increasingly prominent in my opinion...at least the pandering by prominent politicans like Merkel or Wulff (the former president, an avowed Islamophile and total non-entity) who go out of their way to affirm "Islam is a part of Germany" makes it seem that way. Also, dual citizenship was essentially introduced for Turks.
    Compared to the horror immigrants Britain and other Western countries have been getting, Turks in Germany aren't that problematic though (to their credit, they only reacted with peaceful demonstrations when it emerged that some Nazi terrorists had systematically murdered Turkish shopkeepers for years...a similar case in Britain or France would probably have led to massive riots). But apparently Merkel thinks Germany is too boring and now wants to make things more interesting...

    Very interesting post overall. What precisely do you mean by caring about a group's "history"?

    Chesterton called tradition democracy of the dead. Caring about tradition means caring about history, which is different than finding histories interesting, and I suppose in terms of studying history, caring about history in this sense would reflexively favor hagiography. There’s a pragmatic case to be made against preventing watershed events in history, and that case is always worth making. But in the long run we’re all dead. Only a certain regard for the past is going to make people care about a far-off future that descendants they will never know are going to face, care about it like a duty thats has nothing to do with pragmatism. Point being, I don’t think a lot of Jews feel that kind of attachment to countries that have always been Christian, and for so long were proudly Christian. When you think about it, Jews must be in the grip of one very powerful sentiment to not speak up while anti-Semitic hordes barge into their resident countries. I don’t think which sentiment that would be is a big mystery. Jews are famously vested in their own history, which begins with the tradition of a profoundly vindictive God, and Nietzsche said Man made God in his image.

    "Of course, that would presume that Jews care more about Jewish history than German or French or English history"

    In the UK, Jewish historians of England or Britain have been around at least since Geoffrey Elton (uncle IIRC of comedian Ben), a very Anglophile type. The BBC's current go-to TV historian, Simon Schama, is Jewish.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b008qpzn

    Incidentally he's good friends with Martin Sorrell, who runs WPP, the largest advertising agency in the world (source - Sorrell's appearance on BBCs Desert Island Discs)

    “The BBC’s current go-to TV historian, Simon Schama, is Jewish.” And a jolly good historian he was, too, before he degenerated into a pantomime dame. Bad thing, celebrity.

    "and was in many cases culturally and phenotypically indistinguishable from the German population"

    There were high rates of anti semitism in Germany, whatever you feel about such things, you cannot deny that this can only about if the people they were against were truly different to them, and I think they were. Weimar was their true preference of a state, and the old German empire was not, hence the anger from those that did not believe that Weimar was supposed to represent German culture.

    I know I will catch a lot of guff by writing this, but when I consider how cruelly the Germans murdered and persecuted a nation that was and is, in fact, their closest genetic relations - the Poles - on, believe it or not, the grounds of 'race', and also the persecution of the German Jewish population - which was probably the most assimilated Jewish population anywhere, and was in many cases culturally and phenotypically indistinguishable from the German population, then you see German paralysis and stupidity in this present crisis in a different light.

    So what does a nation do that has indulged in self-mutilation or even auto-genocide?

    What Hammel is joking about is actually mass child abuse over the whole of Western Europe.

    1. Children brainwashed from birth by schools and media that being racist is the ultimate sin; and if their parents are SJWs from them too.

    2. Predators from certain ethnic groups who specifically target girls around 11-13 years old because they're easier to manipulate and who specifically use the anti-racist brainwashing as a tool of that manipulation.

    3. Adults and institutions from the native population who refuse to protect these girls from these predators - the way they would if the predators were white - because accusations of racism are more important.

    Adult “liberals” can be as naïve as children. Remember the case of the fake asylum seeker from Africa who knowingly infected scores of Polish women with HIV because, as many admitted, they thought it might be racist to turn him down or wear a condom.

    A metaphor for what is going to happen now to Germany?

    Simon Mol had been a sports journalist on a free trip to Poland when he claimed political asylum from persecution in both Ghana and the Cameroon, then made a good career out of telling all Poles that they were racist. Really; exactly that.

    He was ugly and domineering, the women said. There is also a suspicion that he was attempted to rid himself of HIV by passing it on to others, as African folk medicine suggests.

    He rejected requests to take an HIV Test as racist whilst knowing he was HIV positive: “The accusation of being HIV positive is the latest weapon that as an African your enemy can raise against you”.

    **When I looked this up a few years ago there were a number of polish blogs that discussed it in English. A Polish newspaper went to Africa to discover what a fraud he was. (He died of HIV eventually.)

    Simon Sheppard writes about a concept called Affection Beneath:

    Men love women; women love children; children love pets. You can "love down", have affection for that beneath you but not above. Women cannot love men like men love women. They can only truly love children and pets.

    But in the global pecking order, immigrants are "beneath" European women, somewhat like pets or children. And since they have such animosity towards their own men, it's like giving the finger to them. And they can "rescue" an immigrant.

    I wonder just how long all this would last if there were 500,000 unaccompanied, single reproductive age women pouring across the border that were the equivalent in looks and bodies? "We want our jobs at Jezebel writing click bait!!"

    A single woman typically can't even get a travel visa unless she can prove some sort of tie that binds her back in her country like children left behind and owning a house.

    If you want to jump start an economy let about a million single women in. Even better, give them free boob jobs. The local men would rise to the occasion (no pun intended) and find a way to pay for these women, establish households, create all sorts of new commerce. And all without welfare. If the birthrate is so awful, why not import a bunch of "birthers"?

    “I wonder just how long all this would last if there were 500,000 unaccompanied, single reproductive age women pouring across the border that were the equivalent in looks and bodies? ”

    I just had a vision of five hundred thousand slim Russian women in their twenties – fed up with Putin’s crappy economy – with high Slavic cheekbones, blonde hair and blue eyes, sashaying into Germany all looking for an engineer with two bedroom apartment and a nice car with whom they could have a couple of kids and a nice middle class life.

    Hard-hearted, portly SJW frauleins would be encouraged to return with their Middle-Eastern swains to their countries of origin. Now, that would positively transform Germany’s economy and solve their demographic problem.

    What I'd like to know from a German point of view, is how and why the previous round of turkish immigration is viewed.

    Id say the primary complaints are welfare based, not based on criminal behavior, and somewhat based on culture. Neutral on the economy.

    As opposed to our experience with blacks, which has been positive on culture, bad on welfare, bad on crime. Or the post 68 immigrant experience, which is been good on welfare, good on crime (unz's point on hispanic crime), good on the economy, neutral to bad on culture.

    And whether it was good on the economy.

    My quick reading of "Germany abolishes itself" seems mostly about welfare, very second on culture.

    I and many other Germans regard it as a mistake on the whole. Admittedly there’s a non-trivial part of Turkish immigrants who are well integrated (and some groups like the Alevis seem to do comparatively well)…but there’s a large Turkish underclass that is definitely a burden on the social safety net. Crime isn’t that important a factor…though there’s the occasional case when some unlucky German gets beaten to death by Turkish proles for some depressingly trivial reason (like not giving them 20 cent for cigarettes or trying to mediate in a fight). The cultural element is getting increasingly prominent in my opinion…at least the pandering by prominent politicans like Merkel or Wulff (the former president, an avowed Islamophile and total non-entity) who go out of their way to affirm “Islam is a part of Germany” makes it seem that way. Also, dual citizenship was essentially introduced for Turks.
    Compared to the horror immigrants Britain and other Western countries have been getting, Turks in Germany aren’t that problematic though (to their credit, they only reacted with peaceful demonstrations when it emerged that some Nazi terrorists had systematically murdered Turkish shopkeepers for years…a similar case in Britain or France would probably have led to massive riots). But apparently Merkel thinks Germany is too boring and now wants to make things more interesting…

Weimar was their true preference of a state, and the old German empire was not, hence the anger from those that did not believe that Weimar was supposed to represent German culture.

    Germany was not considered the most anti-Semitic nation in the 19th Century, that was France. Many, many German Jews who were awarded the Iron Cross went to the gas chambers with their medals hoping their past devotion and service to Germany would protect them. It did not. Hitler only protected his old company commander, Jewish. Everyone else was exterminated.

    Anti-Semitism was most a feature of AUSTRIAN and specifically, Viennese politics, before Germany was defeated in WWI. Which it was, decisively, the men at the front ran out of food, clothing, men (about 50% casualty rates), ammo, everything. They were in rags. This was just not shown in the home front which remained remote from the War hence “stabbed in the back” instead of the reality of the British getting VASTLY better at fighting as they rebuilt their shattered professional Army mostly wiped out in Belgium in Sept. 1914; and the Germans suffering their own attrition by a refusal to retreat to defense in depth across the Rhine as everyone outside the bubble of Hindenberg’s Spa HQ urged.

    Germany suffered a unique set of circumstances: long independent nations conquered by Absolutist Prussia, then brutally suppressed by the Bismarck KulturKampf that led to no other institution but the Kaiser and Junckers around in Germany, and the shattering of the Kaiser by WWI (revealing his general incompetence at pretty much everything). Thus a lunatic and deranged group could gain and hold power by murder squads; with nothing to oppose them internally. [Germany's best play in 1934 would have been to arm the Poles, Hungarians, Baltics, etc. against Stalin and point them east, saying "have fun boys" and getting the Allies to pay for it.]

    Germany’s foremost 19th Century philosopher, Nietsche, broke with Wagner over the latter’s anti-Semitism. Nietsche considered it a sign of intellectual and moral weakness.

The interview is very entertaining. Having been in Sweden for hours the kids are already sick from the cold weather. Apparently there’s no nearby hospital, school or supermarket. A walk to the nearest shop takes a full thirty minutes. You also have to pay the staggering amount of 50 SEK (~€5) to rent a car or taxi if you want to go to the hospital.

    Note how more and more children are being brought out from the bus as the interview progresses.

    “She lusted for the neighboring Assyrians,
    Captains and rulers,
    Clothed most gorgeously,
    Horsemen riding on horses,
    All of them desirable young men.
    13
    Then I saw that she was defiled;
    Both took the same way.
    14
    But she increased her harlotry;
    She looked at men portrayed on the wall,
    Images of Chaldeans portrayed in vermilion,
    15
    Girded with belts around their waists,
    Flowing turbans on their heads,
    All of them looking like captains,
    In the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea,
    The land of their nativity.
    16
    As soon as her eyes saw them,
    She lusted for them
    And sent messengers to them in Chaldea.

    17
    “Then the Babylonians came to her, into the bed of love,
    And they defiled her with their immorality;
    So she was defiled by them, and alienated herself from them.
    18
    She revealed her harlotry and uncovered her nakedness.
    Then I alienated Myself from her,
    As I had alienated Myself from her sister.

    19
    “Yet she multiplied her harlotry
    In calling to remembrance the days of her youth,
    When she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt.
    20
    For she lusted for her paramours,
    Whose flesh is like the flesh of donkeys,
    And whose issue is like the issue of horses.
    21
    Thus you called to remembrance the lewdness of your youth,
