The big story yesterday, which was so large and important that it was not directly dealt with here, because it needed more time than was available, is the stabbings of people by migrants from the middle East who are almost certainly muslim, and the resultant protests by very ordinary and average Germans, which the media has been playing as far right Nazi like, islamophobic extremists. All of course, without admitting the killers are muslim.
Here are some videos dealing with the subject, some from yesterday and some today, and not in any particular order so check the date it was uploaded if you want a timeline.
The main purpose of this post is to draw your attention to the events. Not to present a thorough analysis of them, even though it richly deserves such an analysis.
DW, a government propaganda organ much like BBC or CBC, makes it into a full on Nazi protest against poor victims who’s only crime was murdering a few random germans.
This video, dated today, has Merkel saying one man was killed. Actually several were stabbed and a second man succumbed to his wounds yesterday making it two who are dead. The sense is that Merkel and the media is downplaying what actually happened.
In the Reader’s Links comments for both today and yesterday there are many more videos and news links on this event. Please do check. Page search for the city name, Chemnitz, will speed that up.
More videos are in translation and more videos will be added to this post soon.
Please leave additional news links and videos on this issue under this post in the comments for those following this story if convenient.
Thank you all for your help on this, M., MissPiggy and all who have been tracking this horrific murders, and perhaps more horrific attempts by government to maintain the policies that made them inevitable.
