German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she will not back down from her open doors pro-nonwhite invasion policy even after the populist Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) scored well in the weekend’s state elections.
“The federal government will stay its refugee policy course, fully determined, at home and abroad,” a Merkel spokesman, Steffen Seibert, told a news briefing after the results were announced.
Seibert said Merkel would continue to pursue a strategy of working to bolster the security of the EU’s external borders and cooperating with Turkey to reduce refugee flows.
In her official reaction to the results, Merkel said that it had been a “terrible day for the CDU” (her party, the Christian Democratic Union), but that she remains convinced of her policy.
She also said that she was “committed to a European-wide solution to the refugee problem,” and that it should be possible in this way to “reduce the number of refugees coming to Germany.”
Of course, what she means by this is that other European nations should take even more of the nonwhite invaders, and in that way “relieve” Germany of the burden, rather than actually halting the invasion.
She also spoke about the “fear of another religion, [and the] fear of Islam” as being a driver in the increased AfD vote.
She also said that the time had come to “face” the AfD, dismissing them as “an expression of protest behavior against the high number of refugees.”
