German Chancellor Angela Merkel is the “leader of the free world” and “the West’s last, best hope,” James Rubin writes in a recent article for Politico. Rubin goes on to attack US President Donald Trump as shallow, weak on Russia and a cheerleader for the breakup of the European Union.
This praise for Merkel comes despite her unpopularity at home in Germany. “[T]he inherent risks of her open borders approach to the refugee crisis and the extraordinary failures of German federal authorities in the face of the rising Islamist threat,” as Nile Gardener has pointed out, shows her to be “out of touch with winds of change sweeping through Europe.” Indeed, “the guardian of the continent’s liberal ideals” and “champion of European unity” is on pace to be defeated by Socialist leader Martin Shulz in September’s election. She reacted to her fall in the polls by admitting her open borders policy to the Third World flood may have been a mistake. Yet, the chancellor has done nothing to protect her people or begin reversing the influx. Instead, her government has distribted information to African and Arab immigrants (most of them young men) on how to date and have sex with German women.
Merkel has thus far succeeded in flooding Germany and Europe with millions of Arab, Asian and African migrants despite the opposition of a large majority of Germans to her open borders approach. The Third World immigrants have raped and murdered many Germans and committed hundreds of thousands of crimes, reports show. Most infamously, Arab migrants sexually assaulted hundreds of German women and girls in Cologne at a New Years celebration a year ago. The German media and government then tried to cover up the attacks, though the truth eventually leaked out. US President Trump strongly criticized Chancellor Merkel during his campaign and has charged her with “ruining” Germany.
The author of the Politico article, James Rubin, is a liberal New York Jew who served in the Clinton Administration and apparently believes plunging Europe into a dark era of invasion, terrorism, rape and civil unrest is “the West’s last, best hope.”
