    Merkel says German multicultural society has failed (2010)

    Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have "utterly failed", Chancellor Angela Merkel says.
    She said the so-called "multikulti" concept - where people would "live side-by-side" happily - did not work, and immigrants needed to do more to integrate - including learning German.
    The comments come amid rising anti-immigration feeling in Germany.
    A recent survey suggested more than 30% of people believed the country was "overrun by foreigners".
    The study - by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think-tank - also showed that roughly the same number thought that some 16 million of Germany's immigrants or people with foreign origins had come to the country for its social benefits.


    Mrs Merkel told a gathering of younger members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party on Saturday that at "the beginning of the 60s our country called the foreign workers to come to Germany and now they live in our country."
    She added: "We kidded ourselves a while, we said: 'They won't stay, sometime they will be gone', but this isn't reality."


    "And of course, the approach [to build] a multicultural [society] and to live side-by-side and to enjoy each other... has failed, utterly failed."
    In her speech in Potsdam, however, the chancellor made clear that immigrants were welcome in Germany.
    She specifically referred to recent comments by German President Christian Wulff who said that Islam was "part of Germany", like Christianity and Judaism.
    Mrs Merkel said: "We should not be a country either which gives the impression to the outside world that those who don't speak German immediately or who were not raised speaking German are not welcome here."

    Manipulative liar!

    She made this exact same statement years ago - just before encouraging millions of foreigners to infiltrate Germany and the rest of Europe! It's not a good sign and certainly doesn't mean she has any intention of changing course! She's misleading people again.

    I can't believe nobody here seems to remember this? Surely, there's a thread about it!

    It was before Hillary Clinton destroyed Libya, before that time the press claimed "immigrants" were referring to Merkel as "Mutter" (german for "Mother" ) - before many, many incidents of terrorism, stabbings, acid baths, burnt churches and mass murders were committed by so many hate-filled "immigrants" in Germany, France, Britain, Italy, etc.

    Ah, here it is! Merkel said the same in 2010, then ramped up the invasion anyway

    EDIT: Crap! I only just realized the OP is the same 2010 article which I am talking about! I had assumed Merkel had made a new statement - and therefore, "made an ass of u and me" with my response. Date was not made obvious in the first post. I think it should've been made plain that this was a nine year old statement. Oh well, my typography skills make my version of the article more readable, anyway.

    Merkel says German multicultural society has failed
    17 October 2010


    Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have "utterly failed", Chancellor Angela Merkel says.
    She said the so-called "multikulti" concept - where people would "live side-by-side" happily - did not work, and immigrants needed to do more to integrate - including learning German.

    The comments come amid rising anti-immigration feeling in Germany.

    A recent survey suggested more than 30% of people believed the country was "overrun by foreigners".

    The study - by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think-tank - also showed that roughly the same number thought that some 16 million of Germany's immigrants or people with foreign origins had come to the country for its social benefits.

    Foreign workers

    Mrs Merkel told a gathering of younger members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party on Saturday that at "the beginning of the 60s our country called the foreign workers to come to Germany and now they live in our country."

    She added: "We kidded ourselves a while, we said: 'They won't stay, sometime they will be gone', but this isn't reality."

    "And of course, the approach [to build] a multicultural [society] and to live side-by-side and to enjoy each other... has failed, utterly failed."

    In her speech in Potsdam, however, the chancellor made clear that immigrants were welcome in Germany.

    She specifically referred to recent comments by German President Christian Wulff who said that Islam was "part of Germany", like Christianity and Judaism.

    Mrs Merkel said: "We should not be a country either which gives the impression to the outside world that those who don't speak German immediately or who were not raised speaking German are not welcome here."

    Mounting debate

    There has been intense debate about multiculturalism in Germany in recent months.

    Correspondents say Mrs Merkel faces pressure from within her CDU and its allies to take a tougher stance and require immigrants to do more to adapt to German society.

    Earlier this week, Horst Seehofer, the leader of the CDU's Bavarian sister party, the CSU, said it was "obvious that immigrants from different cultures like Turkey and Arab countries, all in all, find it harder" to integrate.

    Germany's president says Muslims belong in Germany

    "'Multikulti' is dead," Mr Seehofer said.

    Earlier this month the chancellor held talks with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in which the two leaders pledged to do more to improve the often poor integration record of Germany's estimated 2.5 million-strong Turkish community.

    The debate first heated up in August when Thilo Sarrazin, a senior official at Germany's central bank, said that "no immigrant group other than Muslims is so strongly connected with claims on the welfare state and crime". Mr Sarrazin has since resigned.

    Such recent strong anti-immigration feelings from mainstream politicians come amid an anger in Germany about high unemployment, even if the economy is growing faster than those of its rivals, our correspondent says.

    He adds that there also seems to be a new strident tone in the country, perhaps leading to less reticence about no-go-areas of the past.

    To destroy it.
    Whether she is part of the faction that actually wants Eurabia or part of the faction that wants an overreactionand a "Crusade" what was there had to be destroyed so the New Order could be built on its ashes.
    Just like Nero burning Rome.

    I think she is part of the faction that wants to provoke a reaction, that's why she imported so many so fast and then keeps acknowledging that it is a failure.

    lol , we were all dupped, just goes to show you (and why I was in shock that she made the statement) , it
    was a lie from the start.
    Merkel has no business in politics , she is what Pelosi is here in the US, a disease that needs eradicating,
    no vaccine is for stupid.

    I saw that breibart had also posted this story. I left a comment asking doesn't anyone else remember her saying this a long time ago? and a little while later the story was removed. Eh. But yeah, it does illustrate what a shameless liar she is.

    Would be interesting to know what Horst Seehofer and Thilo Sarrazin are doing today, or if the Friedrich Ebert Foundation is still studying how much people dislike the now-even-larger deluge of foreigners.

    I heard from some online forums when German teens and women were being raped by Arab/African migrants the German police didn't stop nothing to stop or prevent the rapes according to those.

    The German gov officials and politicians welcomed the rapes.
