Germany’s Version of ‘Free Speech’

See the source image

Cute and cuddly, happy puppies!

Some countries in the Free World aren’t as free as they ought to be. Germany springs immediately to mind. It seems they just can’t kick their old authoritarian habit.

Germany already has a harsh “hate speech” law, enacted last year. But Chancellor Angela Merkel sounds like she wants to make it even more harsh ( In a speech she gave last week, she said, “Expressing an opinion does not come with zero cost.”

In fact, under Germany’s hate speech law, the cost is a fine of up to 50 million euros. A small price to pay if the government is going to “oppose extreme speech.”

Free speech has to have limits, Merkel says. “Those limits begin where hatred is spread.” Not allowed to hate. “They begin where the dignity of other people is violated.”

Uh-huh. And here’s the catch: In Merkel’s little utopia, the government gets to decide what speech is “hateful” and what speech isn’t. Don’t tell me you don’t trust the government to do that.

American liberals see this and lick their chops with envy. Oh, if we could only do that here! Confound that pesky First Amendment! Dash it all, we’re already doing this on all our college campuses! Why can’t we do it everywhere?

Freedom is not something that our self-anointed big shots like us to have. That’s why we have to protect it, day in, day out. Because otherwise some shadowy characters in Facebook, with the enthusiastic support of Democrats, will censor everybody who isn’t them.

This is America, not Germany. Let’s keep it that way.


German Government Warns Jews, ‘Don’t Wear Skullcaps’

(Thanks to Erlene for the news tip)

Here’s a story that America’s free and independent nooze media hasn’t given much play.

God told Abraham, “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 12:3).

But in Germany Angela Merkel’s government, through its commissioner on anti-Semitism, has told Abraham’s descendants not to wear their skullcaps because of “potential dangers” (

Assaults on Jews in Germany have markedly increased; and although the government likes to blame the “far right” for these incidents, many involve Muslim “asylum seekers” which Chancellor Merkel continues to import by the thousands.

Germany’s best-selling newspaper, Bild, has objected strenuously to the warning, and gone so far as to publish cut-out skullcaps which it has urged all Germans to wear, to show solidarity with their country’s Jewish citizens. Bild’s editor-in-chief has written passionately on Germany’s need never again to let Jews be persecuted there–need any reader be reminded of the Holocaust?

Job One for any government, anywhere, is to protect its own citizens from anyone who’d do them harm. A government unable or unwilling to do this has no reason for existing.

Merkel’s government seems to be admitting that it just can’t do this job. In that case, sunshine, why are you still there? Make way for a government that will protect its citizens and ensure their right to live in peace.

God gave us separate nations and languages to protect us from the global tyranny whose symbol was the Tower of Babel. There is only one Person whose right it is to govern all the earth, and that is Jesus Christ. A Christless global government would be the Antichrist.

And we can count on both the blessing and the curse to be still in effect.

‘German Gov’t to People: “Defend Yourselves”; People to Gov’t: “With What?”‘ (2016)

This is one of those stories that never gets followed up: I don’t know how it turned out.

German Gov’t to People: ‘Defend Yourselves’ ; People to Gov’t: ‘With What?’

It reminds me of the Roman Emperor Honorius pulling the legions out of Britain and telling the citizens, “Look to your own defenses.” At least he didn’t have to say, “While we stay here and just sit around playing Old Maid while the barbarians eat you alive.”

A government that won’t defend its citizens has no reason for existing.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking–about Democrats and border security?

Germany to Ban ‘Fake News’

It’s been over 70 years since Germans lived under a dictator; but they don’t seem to have lost their knack for it.

See, it’s just not possible that the German people might be just a tad disenchanted with Kaiser Angela Merkel’s totally insane policy of flooding the country with Muslim “asylum seekers” who then proceed to raise cain everywhere. Nope, they can’t possibly not like that. No, says Angie: it’s just “the public being manipulated by fake news and propaganda.” ( )

And you know, you just know, a certain lame-duck president is banging his head against the wall for not thinking of doing up an executive order banning “fake news”–six months before the election, say.

What is “fake news”? It’s whatever The Government says it is. Angie’s CDU Party is pushing legislation right now to outlaw “fake news” on the social media. She has an election coming soon, and she doesn’t want the voters to read unflattering things about her.

So far all the fuhrer–er, furor!–has been about “fake news on the social media.” Like you never see fake news on the big fat “mainstream” nooze media? What, never? Twelve-minute break for belly laughs.

And what if a conscientious journalist–hey, stop laughing!–in spite of his best efforts, gets a story wrong? Is it fake news? And if exactly the same story is published by Alex Jones on Infowars, and on the front page of The New York Times, why is it fake on Infowars and legit on the Times?

The beauty of authoritarian government is, you just don’t have to bother with a lot of pesky questions. You just go ahead and do it, whatever it is. You want to bring in a million more Muslims, all of them lawless men of military age, just just do it. And if it kills your country, so what? You’re much more interested in a one-world government, anyhow.

But first you have to control the flow of information.

If you can control what people know, you can control what people think.

Germany: Muslim Refugees Abuse Christian Refugees

As Angela Merkel continues on her merry way to destroy Germany, the word is out that in Germany’s nice utopian camps for “asylum seekers,” the Muslim majority abuses, bullies, and menaces the Christian minority–to the extent that Christians have to hide their Bibles and put up with repeated death threats ( ).

This is the same Germany whose government outlaws Christian homeschooling on the grounds that they don’t want Christians creating some kind of “parallel culture” apart from the secular Euro-slop consumed by the rest of the country. Is it so surprising that this Germany shows no sign of caring what Muslims do to Christians?

And if the ol’ shari’a “law” is not a parallel culture, what is?

Merkel seems determined to jam into Germany as many Muslims as she possibly can. What the end result of that will be, who knows? Apparently it doesn’t concern her.

Do the Merkelites really, truly think they can keep this behavior confined to the refugee camps? The world already knows they can’t! Remember the New Year’s Eve rape festival in Cologne?

Germans will pay a very high price for their leaders’ desire to look at themselves in the mirror and say, “How righteous I am!”

Endangered Species: Free Speech


So explain how this float in a German parade doesn’t violate the German law against making fun of a foreign head of state…I mean, it looks like he’s trying to artificially inseminate a camel…

Yesterday it was Bill Nye the Science Guy wanting to put people in jail for not believing in Global Warming.

Today, look at Germany, where head honcho Angela Merkel continues her quest to appease the Death to the Infidels wing of Islam by authorizing the prosecution of a German TV comedian who made fun of Turkish President Biff (or whatever his name is: who cares?) Erdogan ( ).

Would you believe it? Way back in 1871, under good ol’ Kaiser Wilhelm, Germany enacted a law making it a criminal offense to disparage or make fun of a foreign head of state. They gave up the spiked helmets, but kept that.

You may have noticed that nobody in Germany ever got thrown in the clink for making fun of George W. Bush. They have a lot of laughs at Obama’s expense, too–big time.

Maybe the difference is that Erdogan complained about it and the American presidents didn’t. Probably Obama never knew about that German law, or else he would’ve said something about the way they depict him in parades.

Why would a Western leader bend over backwards to coddle a Third World dictator?

Because all the leaders of the West are Third World dictator wannabes.

So, everybody–enjoy your free speech while you’ve got it. They don’t mean for you to have it much longer.

The Biggest Ninny in the Bible

Who was the biggest ninny in the Bible?

Was it the Pharaoh who wouldn’t let the people go? Surely Adam and Eve are in the running. But those were major, world-shaping sins whose effects are still being felt today.

No–I’d say, hands down, the biggest chowderhead in the Bible is Amaziah, king of Judah, son of J0ash. He becomes king in Chapter 24 of 2 Chronicles, and in Chapter 25, Verse 14, he invades Edom and conquers it.

And what does he do next? He “brought the gods of the children of Seir [Edom], and set them up to be his gods, and bowed down himself before them, and burned incense unto them.”

God sent a prophet the ask Amaziah the entirely reasonable question, “Why hast thou sought after the gods of the people, which could not deliver their own people out of thine hand?” (v. 15) Amaziah refused to listen, and threatened the prophet into silence.

The rest of his career is briefly told. He picked a fight with Israel and lost, to the great cost of the people of Judah, and fifteen years later was assassinated by his own subjects.

It took the world some 2,500 years to generate leaders who could match Amaziah for perverse stupidity. By now we have a bumper crop of them. “Hmmm… I think I’ll drop the real God, who gave me everything I have, and worship the idols of these pagans whom I’ve just defeated in a war… Yeah, that ought to work!”

Yes, truly worthy of Angela Merkel. Maybe even worthy of Obama. Definitely Bidenesque in its depth of foolishness.

If Amaziah were alive today, he’d surely be a big wheel in the E.U.
