Germany: Merkel admits her open-door policy on Muslim migrants led to her party’s crushing defeat

Angela Merkel has admitted that her hated open-door policy on Muslim migrants led to her party’s crushing defeat in elections.
Germany has been battered by some 70,000 migrant “potential and actual” crimes, a surge in child rapes at swimming pools, and more sex assaults reported yesterday “during a rampage at a party in Germany, in a chilling echo of the New Year’s Eve attacks.” It’s no wonder that the people of Germany are indicating through their votes that they have had enough, not only of the dangers to their safety but of Angela Merkel defending the indefensible and declaring that “she’ll do the same again,” even in the face of her defeat in her own home state.
So she’s happy about her policies that have led to the tragic victimization of untold numbers of Germans, but she’s definitely not happy about being “beaten into third place” by the so-called far-right Alternative for Deutschland party.
“’I’m very unhappy’ Angela Merkel admits open-door policy DID cause defeat by far-right”, UK Express, September 5, 2016:
But she basically went on to insist the German people did not know what was good for them and she just had to be more persuasive.
Mrs Merkel’s CDU party was beaten into third place by the right wing Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) party in her home state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
CDU could muster only a pitiful 19.2 per cent of the vote compared to the victorious AfD’s 21 per cent, leading to growing scepticism about Merkel’s ability to cling onto power in Germany after her party also lost three elections to the AfD in March.
Today at the G20 Summit in Hangzhou, China, Mrs Merkel conceded the open door policy to migrants had swayed the election but added that she considered the “fundamental decisions” of the refugee policy were correct.
She said the outcome of the state election stands for itself and added: “We must take note that people do not have sufficient confidence in our solution competences. That is why the task is to now work hard to restore confidence. We need to show that we will solve the problems.
“I am very unhappy. The CDU can not reap the fruits because the election campaign was almost exclusively about the issues of federal policy”.
After the AfD win, the party leader Frauke Petry said: “We have made history here today.
“This is a slap in the face for Merkel – not only in Berlin but also in her home state. The voters made a clear statement against Merkel’s disastrous immigration policies. This put her in her place.”
Germany’s Jewish leaders have reacted with horror to the success of the AfD in the weeken election in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
“That an extreme-right party which blatantly incites hatred against minorities in a disgusting way can rise unhindered in our country is a nightmare come true,” said Charlotte Knobloch, President of the Jewish Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria…..
