Freedom of Speech
Something that we take for granted in a land governed by democracy is slowly being taken from us. It’s called freedom of speech. You’ll understand after reading. Reason being is that here in Germany, the government and Facebook have coerced to stifle any Anti- Muslim or generally speaking, any and all Anti-Refugee comments. Facebook/Government put a veritable Dog Muzzle on all commentaries pertaining to the catastrophic refugee situation here in Germany. Overnight, one Facebook group lost 600 members. Due only in part to making expressions and utilizing their freedom of speech. People who make simple commentaries on Facebook against the refugees, (and not all comments were radical to the tune of “Kill them all” or such), have or are waiting to see a Judge to be fined. One was fined €5000 for simply expressing his opinion. Even if you simply say; “Send them back!” Come on; take an educated guess where you will be spending the next paycheck? Correct! Foreigners could probably loose their permanent residence permission with such comments, and then it’s back to the homeland!
It appears that the German government, naturally due to its historical past, is apparently so scared to say no to the refugees, that they are willing to let the country figuratively, and literally, go down the drain. That and the fact that the government is so slow in making any decisions pertaining to the deluge of refugees. As stated before, he who would start making comments about the refugees will automatically become categorized as a “Nazi” in the eyes of the Media and government.
So not only are we being literally overrun with refugees from Syria, but now they are coming from other countries as well, to soak up the social system good life here in Germany and a few other European countries.
The problem of the near one million refugees, who wish to reside ONLY in Germany, is the fantastic social system, which by the way, said German social system gives more monthly sustenance money for a refugee than a disabled German born citizen. This is one of the points that really aggravate the German citizens. Another point is the sudden willingness of the Government to provide tutorial assistance for the refugees to learn German. And what about the entire native born citizens (be it the disabled children or simply the slow learners) which don’t receive assistance, or whose parents fight an everlasting battle with the system to achieve any sort of retribution for the cost of “Special Teaching”. There are lots of other little things which are aggravating the average citizen. To me, it seems that the media purposely brings reports about refugees who; are not satisfied with their living accommodations, want money instead of food, want to go to a specific town of their choice, and refuse to be fingerprinted. Of course, shouldn’t they be grateful that they’re no longer in a war zone where one can (literally) loose their head over nothing, simply being thankful for a roof, food and (most important) safety for their children? Another really big question is why do so many refugees absolutely refuse to be fingerprinted? What, or from whom are they hiding?
We also need to differentiate between those coming from the war zone and all the others (the majority) coming from other economically weak countries. The German citizens can assimilate with the refugees fleeing from the “Syrian Slaughter State”, but not those from weak economic lands.
It is simply amazing when one watches the daily news reports on television, just to what extremes the government will (figuratively) bend over backwards to help all the refugees. Many people pay attention while watching the news reports, and I’ve heard many exclaim to the fact that they come with only the clothes on their back, but now are in possession of new Smart Phones! And then they wonder why the normal citizen is becoming angry? The local governmental agencies are requesting that if anybody has apartments for rent, that they take in refugees. And “Forced Rental to refugee families”, (meaning you have to rent to the local government without any knowledge of just who will move in, or for that matter, how long) is still being talked about from various politicians. Which sounds like Political Suicide to me! This is a BIG problem, should it become law. Many houses here have a second apartment which they would rather not rent anymore, due to bad experiences from former times. I am one of those persons. But many will do it out of greed, for they receive the rent per person, and not per apartment, for the square meter requirement dictated by law is less for refugees than for normal citizens. Ergo, one can rent and become almost 3 times the price one normally could achieve by normal renting. Lucrative, but no thanks! By law, when a house is sold, those who are in a rented apartment do not have to move out. They come as a package deal with the house. So who would buy a house with refugees? No one, period!
These are just a handful of things that only the normal citizen realizes, and I’m fearful of the oncoming revolution of our citizens, (which already started with the muzzle on our freedom of speech) for it will most definitely happen. If it doesn’t happen this year, then wait till next year.
Fact is: The Americans are seriously worried about approx. 10,000 Syrian refugees (and the question remains if they actually are all from Syria) from here being imported to the USA. Now I seriously have to ask; only Ten Thousand? In Bavaria, the land of the BMW, they are coming over the borders by the thousands, every day. The expectation of refugees was continually raised each month until the Government quit calculating how many would arrive. So, ten thousand seems to me a small number, compared to well over one million expected till the end of this year, and this year only.
But irregardless of where all the refugees go, be it Germany, Sweden or even America and Canada, there is now lots of free land in a country which is nice and warm. And with a beautiful ocean with sandy beaches, maybe we should all start building retirement homes in Syria!
