    "Get Rid of Bavaria": Separatists Harness Humor for Europe Campaign

    Many Germans would love to get rid of Bavaria. Now, a small separatist party from the southern state is giving voters the chance.

    For most foreigners, Germany is little more than Oktoberfest, the Alps, beer, lederhosen and the Bayern Munich football club. The stereotypes, though, apply to just one corner of Germany -- the state of Bavaria, which happens to be Germany's biggest and richest.

    Much of the rest of the country, though, regards this wealthy southern colossus with a mixture of bemusement, derision and loathing. It's like a German version of Texas.

    Now a Bavarian separatist party is hoping to harness this animosity in the European parliamentary elections. The tiny Bavaria Party has come up with a tongue-in-cheek posters asking "Don't you want to get rid of the Bavarians?" which feature a woman in traditional dirndl and a man in lederhosen walking away as they wave goodbye.

    Some Germans would like to get rid of Bavaria. But don´t forget: Many Bavarians would leave Germany at once to form a Bavarian union with Austria and South Tyrol. All members of the Bajuvarian tribe would be united then.

    The following map shows how a Bajuvarian ("Boarisch", dark blue areal) state would look like: The current Bavarian districts of Oberbayern, Niederbayern and Oberpfalz would unite with Austria and South Tyrol. But the current Bavarian districts of Oberfranken, Mittelfranken, Unterfranken and Schwaben would be left out of the union because they´re no Bavarians but Alemanns ("Alemannisch") and Franks ("Fränkisch").


    Sounds like a plan....

    As the ostfrisians say, bavarians are the link between austrians and humans.

    But seriously, Bavaria is a pretty conservative state (except Munich) and would be essential in a recovery.

    The hate-love between catholic bavarians and lutheran prussians are centuries old without them seceding.

    To get rid of the manipulated and corrupt federal government secession might not be the answer as the jewish parasites are surely in the bavarian state government as well.

    Bavaria Secedes from Germany

    Yeah, Right! I'll believe it when it happens and not before. Even with the rise of a Separatist Party. Talk about fantasy. Aren't there more pressing problems like the Economy and the level of unemployment?

    I find this ironically funny.
    Seems the US isn't the only one with problems of secession.

    Bavarian Secession

    Ironic? Of course. What is strange is that it always seems to occur in Southern Geographical locations. Pehaps it's due to the water.

    yes wouldn't that be strange a germany with no bavaria? haha actually i think it makes sense. bavarians are very proud of their own nationality (bavarians first, german second) and i think it would be a cool idea to unite the alpinic people like bavaria and austria (not sure if switzerland would work out). very interesting.
