Divorcing Angela Merkel

The UK' forty-year itch.

In an act of petulance that often happens after a split, European leaders, stung by the rebuff, warned the British people that they are on their own and to expect “no special favors.” That scolding, and more, came right after Britain voted itself out of the European Union.

Or, to put it bluntly, the British made it clear that they were divorcing Angela Merkel, Europe’s most powerful leader who used her power to boss around an entire continent, beginning with her insistence that nothing must stop the tsunami flow of migrants.

Millions kept coming, bringing with them a strange culture; people who can’t play well with others.

Abbas...received standing ovations for the kind of talk once heard by their parents in German and now spoken in Arabic by obnoxious Islamist brutes.  
They came from such places as Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Somalia, mostly men, and if many of them were decent and upstanding, the rest brought with them different habits and the inability or the refusal to assimilate. They imported the intolerance of Sharia.

They came bearing anti-Semitism. Wherever they gathered, from one country to the next, the rape index zoomed.

Even if it’s only the few, that’s all it takes to ignite terror, as we saw just the other day in Turkey, or any day anywhere, certainly Israel – and it has become much too simple and convenient to frame all acts of Islamic barbarism into the catch-all term ISIS.

Murderous jihadists, like Mahmoud Abbas, come from a thousand different radicalized tribes and mosques. A few days ago in Kiryat Arba, a Palestinian Arab terrorist broke into a Jewish home and stabbed to death a 13-year-old girl sleeping in her bed. Days later a rabbinic leader and father of 10 was murdered, also by Radical Palestinian Arab Islamists.

Go, make peace with such savages who walk among us. Though, alas, many here in the U.S. are still gagging at the red carpet extended by the EU to blood-thirsty arch-terrorist Abbas, who received standing ovations for the kind of talk once heard by their parents in German and now spoken in Arabic by obnoxious Islamist brutes.  

Eastern European countries began building walls to keep them out. Western European countries, taking instruction from the European Union headquartered in Brussels, were far too politically correct to even approach any such measure. Only Britain declared we’ve had enough, this has to stop.

The English were already chafing from the 40-year itch; tired of taking orders from other capitals at the expense of their thousand-year rule by independence.

Here is how the UK voted, according to the BBC:

England voted strongly for Brexit, by 53.4% to 46.6%, as did Wales, with “Leave” getting 52.5% of the vote and “Remain” 47.5%. Scotland and Northern Ireland both backed staying in the EU. Scotland backed “Remain” by 62% to 38%, while 55.8% in Northern Ireland voted “Remain” and 44.2% “Leave.”

So while certainly not unanimous, the majority announced themselves tired of being pushed around, namely by Angela Merkel.

This was a protest against the German chancellor (and perhaps it’s time to drop that title) who still does not get it!

The influx began with her. She extended the invitation. She remains stubborn and defiant and blind to the migrant chaos she has provoked.

The New York Times has her blaming immigration for the split, but as she sees it, the fault is not hers.

The fault goes to people who fail to love her for opening Europe to the multitudes who have no knowledge or respect for Judeo/Christian values.

That’s her logic. That’s her story and she is sticking to it no matter the cost.

The British returned the defiance by proclaiming themselves free from Merkel-style globalism.

“We want our country back.” That was their battle cry.

That mirrors Donald Trump’s message here in America. We also want our country back. Why is that a problem?
