Like her liberal sister (who, by the way, got routed by Trump) Merkel is baaaad news!

In her first message to President-elect Donald Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel lectured him on gender, racial and religious equality.
As the New York Times put it, Merkel “named a price” for Germany’s cooperation with the Trump-led administration, namely the “respect for human dignity and for minorities from a man who has mocked both.”
If Merkel truly cared about “human dignity” or the rights of those most vulnerable, she might have started closer at home.
After a year-long investigation into the mass-sexual attacks in Cologne, where an estimated 2,000 migrant men — mostly from Arab and Muslim countries — molested at least 1,200 women, almost all the men have managed to walk free.
Similar coordinated sexual assaults by migrants also took place in other German cities, including Hamburg, where over 500 such cases were reported.
Merkel did not even bother to visit the women who were raped and assaulted in Cologne or other German cities — even though these women were victims of her own failed open-border policy.
Merkel’s ‘Multikulti’ paradise looks more and more like a police state. Cologne will be turned into a fortified city to avoid a repeat of last year’s mass sexual assaults. Security forces will monitor the streets with helicopters, surveillance cameras, observation posts and mounted units. The city of Hamburg has also reportedly taken similar steps.
Following Donald Trump’s victory and Hillary Clinton’s loss liberals all over are pinning all their hopes on Merkel.
The ‘orphaned’ liberals are looking for a new leader. Mainstream media are already calling the German Chancellor the ‘Leader of the Free World.’
Following Clinton’s loss, the U.S. online magazine Politico described Merkel in almost messianic terms as ‘Global Savior.’
As Merkel seeks re-election to a fourth term in the autumn of 2017, she is counting on extremely favourable media coverage and glowing celebrity endorsements to enable her to win again.
The German elections will be first and foremost a referendum on Merkel’s open-border policy. It was her suspension of border controls — the Dublin Protocol — in September 2015 that opened the floodgates for Arab and Muslim mass-migration in the first place.
If Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) emerge as the largest party and she manages to head the next ruling coalition, it will be sold by the media and the elites as a vindication of her ‘Refugees Welcome’ policy.
An upset defeat for Merkel, however, could spell doom not only for her policy of mass-migration but for the entire Brussels-based ‘European project’ — a German ‘Brexit’ (‘Dexit’?).
With both France and Germany going to the polls next year, there is the possibility of a democratic, peaceful ‘European Spring.’
