Artikel-Schlagworte: „Horst Kasner“
Abroad, the German chancellor Angela Merkel is supposed to be conservative, as her party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), is for Germany approximately what the Republicans are for America, or the Tories for Britain. Nevertheless, she has led her party to a strictly liberal course with regard to matters like immigration, gender mainstreaming, and the transfer of national sovereignty to supranational organizations (particularly the European Union). Under chancellor Merkel’s leadership, the CDU has engaged in fighting patriotism, Christianity, historical truth, family values, and free speech — er, I mean to say nationalism, bigotry, ethnocentric concepts of history, discrimination, and hate speech, as our newspeak calls things like those.
This policy may be surprising, as this is not what a pastor’s daughter at the head of a Christian party is expected to do. It is worthwhile examining her biography and the milieu she comes from to understand her strange approach.
