Blood on her hands

Merkel: ‘Especially hard to bear’ if Berlin attacker an asylum seeker

Breitbart News by UPI 12/20/16

BERLIN, Dec. 20 (UPI) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday said a truck crash in Berlin which killed 12 people is being treated by police as a terrorist attack.
“Our investigators are working on the assumption that the truck was steered deliberately into the crowd,” German police said.
A stolen tractor trailer loaded with steel beams drove through a festive Christmas market on Monday. At least 48 people were injured, 18 of them seriously.
A person familiar with the investigation said police apprehended the alleged driver, who is from Pakistan. It is not known if the man entered Germany as a refugee, The Wall Street Journal reported.
“I know it would be especially hard to bear for all of us if it should be confirmed that the person who committed this act sought protection and asylum in Germany. This would be especially despicable toward the many, many Germans who are daily engaged in helping refugees, and toward the many, many people who truly need this protection and strive to integrate themselves into our country,” Merkel said in a press conference.

Fresh out of shits to give - Germans did this to themselves, just as we elected Obama twice. We need to focus on fixing our own country and leave them to their own devices. Perhaps there is still a German alive who is willing to fight for his country. Or not. Either way, it's not our problem.

The Paki that was arrested due to insufficient evidence.

If you think about all the great detectives - Holmes, spade, Lupin, Poirot, Charlie, Moto, Shaft - one group conspicuous for its absence is the Krauts - even when the Narzis were running the show they couldn't catch a cold, but Ralph Peters says they had lots of warning although Angie might have wanted to spare the Moslems' feeling so the cops were told to ignore it, not unlike all the Lefties worried about the Moselms getting upset hearing, "Merry Christmas".

Frankly, I think they'll eventually all be going back some day.

PS Sixty, the problem is always just because it's over there now doesn't mean it will stay over there.

It is already here. We need to deal with it.

The standard should be that if you wouldn't let them live in your house, they don't get in the country.

What's particularly galling is the German notion that they are accomodating these refugees as some sort of atonement for their Nazi past. Yet here the modern German government is blundering again, actively causing harm to their own citizenry. And don't forget that some of the 9/11 hijackers were bad Hamburgers.

It's interesting that the Obama regime coddled Merkel and the German government, while eschewing the Brits. Now the tables are turned. Trump will renew ties to the right Brits and spurn the Germans. Wait and see.

The German people are the smartest on Earth. They just let their emotions take them down the wrong roads. Human emotion is the fuel of both good and evil. It always feels right even when it's not.
