Germany: The threshold of failure

There is one migrant tale that I'm afraid made me chuckle. The tens of thousands of economic migrants forcing their way through Hungary and into Austria on their way to Baveria in Germany were single minded - but at the request of the German federal authorities, the Austrians had closed the official border crossing points. News crews were invited to film the closed roads. Tens of thousands of migrants took refuge in the forest on the border - only to find the trees annotated with scores of little arrows with German flags painted on them, pointing in the direction of Breitenberg in Bavaria. Within a week, ten thousand migrants had crossed the unguarded forest border into the town, away from the cameras.

Of the hundreds of thousands of migrants passing through Austria this year, only about 46,000 have made asylum claims. Of those, a high proportion are from the western Balkans and will be sent home. Still, the upheaval is enough to worry the Viennese socialists, who have provided the Mayor and Council of Vienna pretty much since the 1920s, with the exception of 1938-1945. The right-of-centre Freedom Party is snapping at the socialists' heels, and tomorrow's vote could create a major upset the reverbrations of which will be felt in Berlin. 

Senior German politicians are furiously back-pedalling on Merkel's open invitation to the feckless of Africa, Asia and the Middle East to suckle at her German dugs. With Turkey getting revenge for Germany's repeated humiliation of the Moslem nation in blocking EU membership, Merkel now faces an influx of Syrian Jihadists, Islamists and rebels as Russia mops them up on the ground. In an article in Der Speigel, Merkel's refusal to talk numbers is reported to be splitting her support; " .. if her plan to pacify the world doesn't work, it could be that so many people will come to Germany that Germans will no longer stand for it. Merkel is aware of that, which is why she doesn't want to become involved in a discussion about numbers. She doesn't want to name her own threshold of failure."

I've written before that there is a maximum number that Germany can take; clearly that number is less than the 1.5m that are headed there this year. When it comes to German border guards beating them back with batons and tear gas - as I think it will, whether under Merkel or her replacement - her great gesture will turn sour.

Indeed. Germany would be foolish to abide by Merckel's madness. There are some who think she is angling for the Nobel Peace prize. Is there a prize for the destruction of European values and civilisation- I suspect not. I fervently hope that Merckel and her ilk are subject to retribution and justice in this world, before it expires

What of Sweden?

afaik they haven't set a limit and anybody foolish enough to suggest one gets beaten up by the ghastly progressive media - it's not going to end well - ditto for Norway with the bonus of being labelled a "Breivik" lover ...

The Danes seem to have cottoned to it.....

1.5 million migrants are anticipated, twice the 800,000 Merkel predicted. But German newspapers are predicting that when their families are allowed to join them, the numbers will swell to 7.5million.

That's 7.5 million people, most of whom, who will need taxpayer-funded support all their lives.

Merkel has invited the 3rd world to raise German taxes, lower the German peoples' standard of living and destroy their national cohesion.

Of course she doesn't want to admit how bad the results of her actions are going to be.

"Of course she doesn't want to admit how bad the results of her actions are going to be."

Maybe she won't admit it because it is on purpose?

Merkel's "open Invitation"
Err, NO.

Transit Camps are now being proposed, with economic migrants ( i.e. 95% of those from the Balkans ) being sent back ....
