Vi sono concetti inesprimibili in termini politicamente corretti. Ogni linguaggio è strutturato per esprimere una certa quale tipologia di concetti. Per esempio, nell’arabo classico non esiste un termine equivalente a quello occidentale di “persona umana” oppure di “libertà“, così come in mandarino classico non esiste una qualcosa che esprima il concetto occidentale di “democrazia“.
Cercheremo quindi di esprimerci nel modo più soft possibile. Leggete per cortesia tra le righe.
La Bundeskanzlerin Frau Merkel è attaccata al potere per il potere più di MacBeth, che assassinò Re Duncan per strappargli la corona, ed è disposta a difenderlo con la determinazione di Ivan Vasil’evič, forse più noto con il nome regale di Ivan IV il Terribile.
«Tutti i sovrani russi sono autocrati e nessuno ha il diritto di criticarli, il monarca può esercitare la sua volontà sugli schiavi che Dio gli ha dato. Se non obbedite al sovrano quando egli commette un’ingiustizia, vi rendete colpevoli di fellonia» [Lettera di Ivan IV il Terribile ad Andrej Kurbskij]
Ci si ricordi di cosa fece Frau Merkel al suo mentore Herr Helmut Kohl.
Il titolo del Deutsche Welle è oltremodo chiaro:
In Germania si è votato in tre Länder.
Mentre la Spd non ha fatto altro che perdere voti fino ad arrivare alla disfatta nel Nordrhein-Westfalen, la Cdu della Bundeskanzlerin Frau Merkel ha inanellato un successo dopo l’altro.
A prima vista il fenomeno sarebbe sembrato essere inspiegabile. Eppure era tornato in Germania Herr Schulz, e tutti erano concordi a dire che c’era lo “effetto Schulz“, che avrebbe fatto stravincere la socialdemocrazia.
La spiegazione è di una sconvolgente semplicità, ed anche altamente indigesta da tutti i punti di vista.
Herr Schulz, da buon ideologo quale è, ha proposto all’elettorato una ulteriore dose massiccia di socialdemocrazia, che gli Elettori hanno percepito come sinonimo di sempre più stato, sempre più migranti, sempre più previdenze, sempre meno ordine. Togli ai tedeschi l’ordine e quelli si eleggono anche Adolfo.
Frau Merkel si è proposta come la donna del ritorno alla legalità ed all’ordine. Si è presentata come la vittima della Spd che la avrebbe condizionata nella Große Koalition a richiamare migranti, tollerare disordini, conculcare la legalità.
Bene. Votate me sottraendo voti all’Spd.
Sicuramente la Spd ha su tutti questi problemi delle responsabilità severe, molto severe: ma dire che Frau Merkel sia stata costretta ad agire come ha agito è una favoletta che solo i tedeschi possono tracannarsi come rosolio.
Sta di fatto che agendo in questa maniera la Bundeskanzlerin Frau Merkel ha recuperato una quantità straordinaria di voti, sottraendoli all’Spd. Infatti, Fdp ed AfD hanno ottenuto risultati molto superiori alle comuni aspettative.
Dalle parole ai fatti.

La Bundeskanzlerin Frau Merkel non si è certo conturbata «trampling all over EU law and child welfare». Frau Merkel non è immorale: è amorale.
Le leggi EU si applicano quando servono a consolidare il potere di Frau Merkel, se no a che mai servirebbero? Sono gli stati mediterranei dell’Unione che le devono osservare. Il “welfare” per i bambini? Ma i bambini sono fatti per essere gettati in pasto agli orchi.
Al pari di MacBeth, la Bundeskanzlerin Frau Merkel teme come la peste esclusivamente una cosa: che alle sue spalle si stia avvicinando una altra Fraulein Merkel, anche essa assatanata di potere, pronta a farle il servizio.

German lawmakers have passed a series of laws concerning the deportation, monitoring and access to personal data of asylum seekers. The new legislation has been met with sharp criticism.
German authorities will be allowed to deport rejected asylum seekers more quickly and regularly under a series of new asylum laws passed on Thursday.
The Bundestag said the new laws would guarantee “the improved enforcement of deportation rulings.” Rejected asylum seekers deemed to be a security threat will be deported faster or monitored with an electronic ankle bracelet.
Deportation orders against rejected asylum seekers can now be imposed even without assurance that the person in question would be repatriated within three months. A migrant could therefore be issued a deportation order even if the country origin fails to provide the necessary documentation or passport papers. This law was among the key new regulations for the German government, after the Berlin Christmas market attacker, Anis Amri, saw his deportation order waived when the Tunisian government couldn’t provide the necessary papers.
Authorities, meanwhile, will also be allowed to detain individuals suspected to be a threat to security for a maximum of 10 days, rather than the previous limit of four days.
Another new piece of legislation allows Germany’s Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) to access asylum seekers’ personal electronic devices in order to verify the identities of those without official identification papers.
Draft laws further tightened before vote
Any migrant found to have given a false identity upon entering Germany will see their freedom of movement strictly limited. The same penalty would also apply to migrants without the right to remain in Germany, but who nevertheless refuse to leave on their own volition.
German authorities would also instruct asylum seekers deemed to have few prospects in the country to remain in reception centers until their asylum procedures have been completed.
Germany’s federal and 16 state governments had already agreed to the new asylum laws back in February. However, on Wednesday the ruling coalition government, made up of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) and the Social Democratic Party (SPD), introduced a number of stricter laws to the draft bill.
One of the rules introduced at the eleventh hour would prohibit failed asylum seekers from acquiring the right to stay by abusing a law that allows migrant fathers to remain if their child is born in Germany.
Another law would make it easier for state authorities and the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) to share and compare data.
Rights groups and welfare organizations decry new laws
Rights groups, welfare organizations and opposition parties condemned the tighter asylum laws as an assault on fundamental rights of people seeking protection.
The federal government was dismantling several legal hurdles that had been set up to protect people from undue detention, Maria Scharlau, a Berlin-based legal expert for Amnesty International, said. Laws concerning access to migrants’ smartphones presented a “major encroachment into the privacy of tens of thousands of people,” without providing any particularly robust conditions, she claimed.
“This law will change Germany from being a host country to one focused on deporting new arrivals,” Germany’s refugee aid organization, Pro Asyl, said amid its criticism of the bill.
The social welfare organization AWO warned that the tighter laws would also see an increasing number of people who require protection becoming disenfranchised.
De Maiziere argues against critics
German Interior Minister defended the new laws on Thursday, along with a number of CDU and SPD lawmakers.
“Our position is clear,” de Maiziere said. “Help and integration for those who need our protection; hardship and repatriation for those who don’t require protection, and in particular for those whose dishonesty makes them culpable.
De Maiziere added that it was unacceptable that certain “asylum seekers are allowed to go unpunished despite having registered under a host of different names and nationalities.”
→ Deutsche Welle. 2017-05-19. Germany limits refugee family reunions from Greece
The German government has significantly cut back on family reunions for refugees arriving from Greece, local media reported. Germany has taken in over a million people and is facing “limited capacity.”
German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere has reduced the number of asylum-seeker family members allowed into the country from Greece to 70 a month, German news group RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland reported on Friday.
The group of local papers said the information was provided by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government following a request from the Left Party. In its response, the Interior Ministry said the decrease in numbers had to do with “limited support and accommodation capacities,” as well as the “considerable logistical coordination effort by state and federal authorities.”
Left lawmaker Ulla Jelpke described the explanation as a “miserable excuse,” and accused the government of shirking its responsibilities under the EU’s Dublin regulation. The law stipulates that separated refugee and asylum-seeking families are entitled to a legal reunion once an immediate relative arrives in a country covered by the Dublin rule.
“The federal government is trampling all over EU law and child welfare,” Jelpke said, adding that the cap should be removed because there was a need for as many as 400 refugee family members per month to be reunited with their loved ones in Germany.
Overstretched asylum system
The European Union took in some 1.6 million refugees and migrants – most of them from Syria – between 2014 and 2016. The majority arrived in Germany via frontline states like Italy and Greece. But the scale of the influx prompted many countries to introduce extra controls and to close their borders, blocking the so-called Balkan route and leaving tens of thousands of people stranded in Greece’s refugee camps.
According to information published by Greek newspaper “Efimerida ton Synakton”, around 2,000 refugees are waiting in Greece to be reunited with their families in Germany. It reported that Germany received only 70 Dublin transfers from Greece in April under the new cap, compared to 540 in March and 370 in February. Given the large number of arrivals and asylum requests, family reunion claims often require more time for processing. The UN’s refugee agency has urged European countries to speed up the procedure to prevent further hardship for refugees, many of whom have already endured dangerous journeys in escaping conflict in their home countries.
Sharing the burden
The EU is attempting to lighten the burden for countries hosting refugees by introducing mandatory relocation quotas for member states. Thus far Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and others have resisted the plan, citing security concerns. The European Commission is expected to decide next month on possible legal action against countries unwilling to accept asylum-seekers.
At a meeting of interior ministers in Brussels on Thursday, Germany’s de Maiziere said he hoped for progress by June. “We should concentrate on the issues where an understanding is easier to achieve: efficient procedures, quicker returns and avoiding secondary migration,” he told reporters in Brussels.
“Maybe the very difficult issue of redistribution becomes easier when we have an agreement on these other issues.”
