In the Hessian municipal elections, fruitless calls by the Party Establishment Cartel for as high a voter turnout as possible achieved an effect in the three state election on March 13th. This, however, couldn’t be at all according to the wishes of the CDU (Christian Democratic Union), SPD (Socialist Party of Germany), the Greens, the FDP (Liberal Democratic Party) or the Leftist Party. Because the great profiter of the clearly higher voter turnout in Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony-Anhalt is unequivocally the new AfD (Alternative for Germany) Party.
One thing from this is clear: The party cartel need not fear non-voters, much the opposite.
(By Wolfgang Hübner, Frankfurt)
However, it must fear voting non-voters or no-longer-voters. This lets something pointed be said, that a considerable portion of the people are sending a message back to politicians. These women and men no longer want to look on passively while Germany gets turned into a large asylum shelter for islamic and African surplus population and failed governments.
What at first was only a revolt totally within the framework of democratic possibilities can now turn into a public uprising if Merkel’s Germany now isolated from without, caught in its moral delusions of grandeur, does not learn the right lessons from the election outcome.
Those, however, who had to witness on an election evening talk show followed how CDU politician von der Leyen argued that the election results had something to do with the refugee policy, or the inflammatory nonsense by SPD creep Stegner that he must question not just the sanity of the defense minister in office and a slobbering party functionary but also the whole political class of the European heartland.
If the party cartel still wants to bath in its own fat in the future, it would do them better never again to call for greater participation in the election. Because that is apparently much more dangerous for the present dominance by CDU and Co. than the than the long-term sinking of happiness that can be indicated by the vote in the voting public. The party cartel would also be well advised to organize future election campaigns that make note their own functionaries, members and core voters as much as possible.
That, however, will be impossible because in the Office of the Federal Chancellor sits a woman who is not just about ruining her party according to plan and dividing society, but also burdening the future of the Germans with the heaviest of debt. Nevertheless, Angela Merkel has now awakened the strongest people’s party in the country, namely the non- and no-more-voters. And for this, even the chancellor ought at least to be very thankful, don’t you think?
