Last Saturday, the same day that a Christian Democrat congress approved a cabinet dominated by him Wilders speeched for 500 invitees in Hotel Berlin in Berlin. Mr. Wilders spoke in good German of the need for Germans saying:
In these difficult times, where our national identity is under threat, we must stop feeling guilty about who we are. We are not "kafir," we are not guilty. Like other peoples, Germans have the right to remain who they are. Germans must not become French, nor Dutch, nor Americans, nor Turks. They should remain Germans. When the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan visited your country in 2008, he told the Turks living here that they had to remain Turks. He literally said that "assimilation is a crime against humanity." Erdogan would have been right if he had been addressing the Turks in Turkey. However, Germany is the land of the Germans. Hence, the Germans have a right to demand that those who come to live in Germany assimilate; they have the right--no they have a duty to their children--to demand that newcomers respect the German identity of the German nation and Germany's right to preserve its identity.A new, German Freedom Party
These are great truths and they needed to be spoken. Mr. Wilders was in Berlin at the invitation of René Stadtkewitz. Mr Stadtkewitz is a former German Christian Democrat, who was expelled from the CDU (German Christian Democrat Party) for inviting Wilders and who founded a new party called "Die Freiheit" of Freedom in English.
This comes after a high ranking German Banker, Thilo Sarrazin published a book detailing the many failings of Multi-Cultural society. For the first time Multi-Culturalist orthodoxy is under discussion in Germany, the biggest nation in Europe and its economic and political engine. Events are developing fast! The ideas of Sarrazin have great support amongst Germans. There is a great future for a populist movement in Germany too, just as in The Netherlands. If this will get Europe anywhere remains to be seen, but for now at least there is some movement, where there used to be inertia.
