A video of a German town meeting in which the new German reality dawns on desperate citizens has been revealed by conservative commentator Amy Mek via social media. In it, one may discern the watershed moment when the bureaucratic leadership breaks news to the incensed constituency that the familiar concepts of German sovereignty, borders, and culture no longer form the stabilizing center of government priority that had kept them safe in the past. From the video it is apparent that until this town meeting, the citizens in it still believed, perhaps logically, that their government exists to protect them, their loved ones, and their interests.
Grandfather: My granddaughter, she's under ten - and it also happened in a nearby town.
Citizen: That's right!
Grandfather: The girls have been harassed by the "refugee children" ... the asylum seekers ... and they get harassed from the windows of the shelter and things like that. How will this be in the summer, when the school girls wear less clothing?
Mayor: That's easy. Just don't provoke them and don't walk in these areas.
(Audience uproar): In your own country! You can't even walk in your own city anymore! Oh boy! In your own city! Yeah! Let's all keep a one meter distance! So easy! You're not allowed to walk in your own city anymore! Go home, boy! Who the hell elected you? They come here and we're not allowed to walk here anymore?! Boy, oh boy, you've got some nerve. What kind of mayor is this? He should step down!"
Mayor: Sit down, please.
Grandfather: My grandchildren are supposed to go to school here! This is the way it is?
Mayor: Well, it's technically not necessary for the girls to walk there. There are alternative routes for going to school.
At which point bedlam again resurfaces, with meeting participants resorting to disproportionately undemocratic invective: "It doesn't matter if there are other routes! We can't let our children go over Bernsbach [a much longer route -MS]. This is our evening here?"
Mayor: Please calm down. [Unintelligible shouting]. Calm down. Am I speaking Chinese? Am I speaking Chinese?
Citizen: Yes! This is Germany!
The audience is riled and continues inelegantly interrupting the mayor, who switches arguments, thinking for some reason that this approach would mollify his constituents: "Do you think this [rape] doesn't exist among Germans?"
Citizen: That has nothing to do with this! Germans go to prison for this! But the perverts - they don't go to prison!"
