Germany’s crazy central banker and hero of the extreme right, Thilo Sarrazin, has outdone himself now with a new book – Deutschland schafft sich ab (“Germany Eliminates Itself”) – which attacks Germany’s Muslim minority. The book is not even in the bookstores yet, but the excerpts that have been published have already unleashed a firestorm of controversy.
Thilo Sarrazin is a member of the Social Democrat party (SPD) but yesterday the general secretary of the German Jewish Council (Zentralrat der Juden) Stephen Kramer, encouraged Sarrazin to switch to the neo-Nazi NPD, whose platform is more aligned to Sarrazin’s extremist views.
The NPD has reacted with jubilation at this recommendation and published the following statement on its Web site:
With his key message: “We can’t become strangers in our own country” Serrazin articulates a decades-old genuine NPD position. We are indebted to to this managing director of the Bundesbank for making the NPD’s anti-immigration critique respectable. If we focus on his statements pertaining to population growth and foreigners we can only conclude that here someone has written an authentic NPD book that calls for all Germans to engage in political and civil resistance against theft of land and the overflow of foreigners.
“An authentic NPD book.” Well done, Herr Sarrazin!
