A missing mandate

When elected politicians ignore the people, the people will ensure their voices are heard and their will is ultimately obeyed.
Over the past several months, the German people have become increasingly frustrated with Merkel's "open-border" policy that has allowed over 1mm migrants to flow into the country from the Middle East and North Africa.  The flood of migrants has brought with it a wave of violent crime including sexual assaults resulting in a rising nationalist tension as people have turned their backs on Merkel and her Christian Democratic Union party in recent elections.

The most recent example of backlash over the migrant crisis comes from the small German town of Oersdorf in Northern Germany.  The Mayor of Oersdorf, Joachim Kebschull (61), was recently beaten unconscious outside of the city's Town Hall where the construction committee was meeting to discuss a new housing development for migrants.  The mayor was apparently struck with a club from behind as he stepped out the Town Hall building to get a laptop from his car.

According to DW, Kebschull had been receiving threats for months.  In fact, the committee meeting had already been postponed twice over bomb threats.

The controversy surrounded a local subsidized housing revitalization where the mayor wanted to offer apartments to asylum-seekers.  “If we could also offer a family of refugees a new home in our village, we would like to take this opportunity and make a small contribution to people who had to flee their homes,” the association said in a statement on its website.
It will be interesting to see if the mayor learns anything from the experience or if he's going to follow Angela Merkel's lead and keep doubling down. Germany will not tolerate this invasion much longer and it won't surprise me in the slightest if these one-off attacks - this is not the first attack on a pro-migrant politician - are replaced by a more organized campaign over the next year.

Keep in mind that this sort of violent response to an authority figure is very much a "last resort" behavior on the part of Germans. They are far more inclined to violence in obedience to authority than in resistance to it. It is a telling indicator that the German political establishment has lost the proverbial "Mandate of Heaven" and is on the verge of entering a pre-revolutionary state.

Right now, there is still the hope that the AfD will come to power and set things straight. But if they are, like the Front National, kept out of power through collusion by the major parties, or if they fail to repatriate the invaders, Germany is going to see violent civil strife that goes well beyond the Red Brigades scare of the 1970s.

My money says the mayor will double down. He still doesn't believe on a visceral level that most Germans aren't with him.

It is also important to remember the first debate question of how the candidates will react should they lose. Lots of subtext there.

Of course the alt-right will respect a verifiable Clinton victory. Verifiable is the key word. No, we are not going to take MSM's word.

From the OP: "Oersdorf for Oersdorfers"
Note he didn't say Germany for the Germans. People who say there is no nationalism in Germany have to realize that there is quite a bit at the state / regional / town level.

As for the AfD, I consider them quite mild. They're mostly Alt-Lite with a bit of Alt-West mixed in. They're the best we've got, but I'm not sure anymore that they would do enough even if they get to run the government at some point.

Blogger Lovekraft October 02, 2016 8:36 AM  

I mentioned Level 1 alt-righters, the poor and disenfranchised who have to deal on a day-to-day basis with seeing their culture decimated, vibrants growing in power. Real issues like their children bullied, their sisters harassed etc.

Higher levels of the alt-right cannot afford to pay lip service to these people, else they come off as elitist. I am educated, but also on 'the ground' and the last thing I need is higher ups tut-tutting my kind resisting.

Co-operation among the levels.

Anonymous McGonzo October 02, 2016 8:58 AM  

I've been reading stories about Merkel's so-called decline in popularity for what seems like a couple years now. At first, I was optimistic that the German voters would do something about all this vibrancy - the articles made it sound like she was on the verge of losing power. Yet she never did. And she's as "vibrant" as ever.

They think it was a German. Immediately beforehand, this slimy traitor received a letter which stated "Oersdorf for Oersdorfers" and "He who does not want to hear will have to feel," among other threats, according to what I read elsewhere.

He might well have said, in bad times any dissent is dis-respectable. Because that is where we are now; the Left automatically categorise all dissent as due to some version of their hate/phobia mantra.

So people have arisen who are immune to being dis-respectable, and politicians have likewise arisen to represent those people.

Which means the last lever of influence on those people (i.e. us) and their representatives has broken.

We will do what we want without any regard to the Left, for they've never had any regard for us.

We. Don't. Care.

Considering the damage they are doing to Germany the pushback is remarkably slight. Regionally it is starting to happen. Hungary putting up the wall. Poland showing resistance, and surely some of the Brexit votes.

The crazy thing is that the unhappy outcome of this stuff is so obvious. While I will pass on calling Secular Humanism a religion, no deity, it is a religious like doctrine in that it is morally assertive. It assumes to know virtue and the followers have it by assumption. That is why they are so reluctant to do anything constructive. It is their morally superior one world "we are the world" doctrine that is at stake, and it is under assault by the evil provincials.

Anonymous Sam the Man October 02, 2016 10:23 AM  

The only good thing to come out of this, and I write it with some trepidation, is perhaps the Germans will fined the heart to be come nationalist again. It is time for them to stop beating themselves up about WWI and WWII and go do what Germans do best, build things and take pride in it. Hat to say it but German types make up a significant proportion of the combat arms.

It they have to eject a few million bad refugees to do it, well that will go a long way to removing the pervading war guilt that still seems to infect them.

What is the difference in penalties for being caught beating a politician with a club vs killing him in Germany if you are white? In for a penny in for a pound, especially if you can live like Breivik and expect a full pardon when people wake up.

When I was there I thought it was more on the metro area level.

40 years ago, you may have been correct. However:

Due to the new citizens, there is now a ~15% men surplus in the age group 18-30. (Germany may have 80 million people, but the cohort of that age is smaller than previous ones, 5-6 million, most of them would not say 'boo' to a goose, due to Hitlerian guilt)

2) In many towns, the new Germans already provide 70% of the current Kindergarten cohort.

And, the German national thing is totally busted already --- 2 wars lost and the entire country only unified because the French serially victimised the Burgers there.

Most of the time, it was cold, dirt poor and very violent. So, in a way, there is no point in staying there, and the mentality of the Germans (either at your neck or your feet) also is not exactly wonderful, add to that the folkloristic OCD about rules (only enforced selectively aka 'heads you lose, tails I win', but with vigour) and meh, it's ok if other people want to freeze in the dark there for time to come.

Finally, the infrastructure there is good for another 20 years, after that it's going to be difficult to have industry there, because bridges (and autobahns) are expensive to build and maintain and it's simply not happening at the rate it would need to.

As they used to say: "Der letzte macht das Licht aus."

The lumpen left is absolutely this stupid. The cucks are arguably even more stupid. All enhanced by a fine public schul edumacayshun no doubt. The (((ruling left))) knows exactly what it's doing and profits from both ends of the destruction. Their military-industrial wing destroys a place like Syria so they can profit by manipulating oil prices, the always expensive military expenditures and (ultimately) money via UN et al to rebuild the places destroyed by them. At the same time, the SJW wing gets money to resettle the rapefugees, impose greater police power upon those in the target-zone for the 'final solution' all the while taxing them so that YT pays for his own extermination. Neither the lumpen leftward nor the cuck sees it. Both get to virtue-signal about how anti-raycisss they are as the cuck gets to play patriotard for his support of 'bombing the damned hadjis' - unaware that the same hadjis are being resettled down the street by the "Christians" so they can live off welfare and set up prostitution rings to ensnare the cuck's little white girls and boys.

My bet is the German mayor will be provided a security team and seriously double down. Diabolical narcissists never learn from their errors.

I am not into believing things just because they are (((fun))) or satisfy some agenda. The thing is when what you think is actually true correct conclusions can be drawn in other areas. A new line of BS is not needed for each new situation. Synergy in thought: getting it right in one area helps getting it right in other areas.

Lets take Islam as an example of a religion. The prophet Muhammad relays stuff from the god Allah. What you call the deities are actually the prophets relaying their sacred doctrines that does not come from a guy in the sky.

In a lot of ways Secular Humanism is a religion without a god. But most people conceptually frame religion as a belief system based on a supernatural deity. If you choose to use words in an uncommon way the common result is to end up confusing people or "talking past them" in that they don't get it. Typically this produces no counter argument but no meeting of the minds either.

I'm hoping the beat-down will be a Come To Jesus moment for the mayor, and he realizes he works for the people of his city, not the UN, and people are not interchangeable. He should take the "hint" and refuse any more refugees.

But I'd not be surprised if he doubles down, saying he will not bow to terrorist pressure (that is, accuse his own towns-folk of terrorism) and offer to take in twice as much. At which point the townsfolk will know he's telling them it may be time for the fourth box of democracy.

Recognizing a deity is dependent on how you are defining that particular example of deity.

When I read these stories about Frau Merkel's epic incompetence along with those of her fellow lackeys, I also tend to be reminded that at least Hitler, as bad as he was, never would have allowed his Germany to be filled with these bits of human debris. He was all about Germany for Germans. Not the debris of the world.

Blogger Johnny October 02, 2016 12:43 PM  

What it seems like to me is that Europeans are more given to latching on to a doctrine than other groups of people. Plus they are not hypocrites, they act out. The result produces these periods of craziness, the latest one reminiscent of the periods of religious craziness in the Middle Ages.

This stuff to some extent reminds me of the Crusades and some of the Middle Ages craziness.

Half the problem with appropriately approaching the issue of Islam would go away with one simple paradigm change: DECERTIFY ISLAM AS A RELIGION. It is something else, a hostile, armed, murderous political doctrine, akin to Soviet/Maoist Communism. No self-identified member of the Nazi Party could reasonably expect to freely walk around the U.S. in 1943 legally unmolested. Given what Islam is (including having repeatedly declared war on all of us), so should the same be WRT Muslims now.

Liberalism/political correctness, now, that is the reverse. It's IMO a religion masquerading as a political doctrine for convenience. The solution, of course, is full separation of church and state, for it at least.

This is an important point that I think isn't being considered. If the make up of the population of a nation changes that nation changes. Infrastructure requires maintenance. Companies need willing workers whom have a certain level of education / intellect and need sound management (without SJW/feminists) and they need to operate within a society with fair laws that are enforced fairly.

Although I think it is scant on administrative detail, Islam is against democracy in that a theocracy of some sort is supposed to govern, and the followers are encouraged to act out violently when the situation justifies it. Given these characteristics, if there was a will to do it the religion could likely be harassed out of business. Sedition and the Rico statutes are what come to mind.

I don't fully understand, and I certainly did not wish, for my sense of peace about the future to increase when I hear ramblings about violent revolutions in Germany of the sort here described. It is discussed as though it is a dystopian vision, when in fact it is so much more desirable to me than the slow demographic death of old white Europe, that my spirits actually lift when hearing about it. This is certainly not because I like violence. My question is this, however. Do you really think Germany would make an effort to overthrow this attempt at destroying it? Or any other European country? Where is the evidence. Honestly, I think they will be bred out long before any such backbone grows in in the husks of geriatric Europe. I wish I were wrong about that prediction. I just don't think I am.
