Germany On A Disturbing Path

I'm not digging Germany these days.

At all.

And this Angela Merkel chick.

She's bad news.

"Germany's Angela Merkel agreed on Friday to allow prosecutors to pursue a case against a German comedian who mocked Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan, prompting accusations that she had failed to protect free speech and dividing her ruling coalition.

Erdogan had demanded that Germany press charges against Jan Boehmermann after he recited a poem about the Turkish leader in a show on German public broadcaster ZDF on March 31, suggesting he hits girls, watches child pornography and engages in bestiality."

Wow. I guess we can surmise what side she was on while she was living in East Germany.

Germany sure never sways from its authoritarianism streak. Know who else cracked down on free speech?

Fuck Merkel.

And especially fuck this asshole Erdogan.

Mark Steyn on the story:

"There will be fewer poems, fewer satirical sketches, fewer jokes - not just about Erdogan, but about Islam in general. To reprise my old line: The process is the punishment.

Don't believe that? First of all, the broadcaster has already deep-sixed the offending joke:

ZDF removed the video clip of Boehmermann from its website two days after it aired.

So the anti-Erdogan gag is history. Even if in Merkel's weaselly evasion "the courts will have the final word", the joke will not be coming back. Will Herr Boehmermann?

The public TV channel has decided not to broadcast his weekly satire programme this week because of the furore surrounding Boehmermann.

Ah. So the poem has vanished, and so has its creator. And, given the backbone ZDF are showing, what are the chances of them or any other German media outlet broadcasting any further provocations to Erdogan in the future?

At this stage, Ankara's strongman doesn't really need to win in court, does he?"

Indeed. Canada uses this tactic as well. In the interest of 'decent discourse'. Which is total and absolute bull shit.

Do people not see this is exactly how you get on to a path of totalitarianism?



  1. Collective extortionism in my opinion.
    And exploitation of the legal system as well.

    And I don't think the U.S. is innocent of this sort of thing in any way either.

    1. Like how Hillary and Obama put that shmuck in prison over the video that allegedly started the Benghazi riot and attack? Man oh man.
