    Thumbs Up Germany Central Banker Thilo Sarrazin Condemned for 'Racist' Book



    The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has called for the dismissal from the central bank of a prominent board member who has repeatedly said that Muslim immigrants in Germany are unfit and unwilling to integrate into society.

    The Bundesbank said that comments made by Thilo Sarrazin in a highly publicised new book were harmful to the bank and violated its code of conduct. It said it would meet with the banker before deciding about his future.

    Sarrazin has unleashed an impassioned debate about Germany's immigrant population by saying that the behaviour of its members is putting the country under threat.

    ...

    In Deutschland Schafft Sich Ab, or Germany is Digging its Own Grave, Sarrazin argues that most of the country's immigrants cannot be integrated into society and contribute nothing to it.

    He also blames foreigners – mainly Germany's Muslim population – for "dumbing down" society. He says that the rate at which Muslim women are reproducing means that Germans may soon become "strangers in their own country".

    The book is already a bestseller and has prompted comparisons to Geert Wilders, the head of the Dutch far-right Freedom party.

    Germany Central Banker Condemned for 'Racist' Book

    The German government has condemned an official with the country's central bank on the publication of his book on immigration issues.

    Bundesbank board member Thilo Sarrazin's book, Germany Abolishes Itself, states that Muslim immigrants refuse to integrate.

    In a newspaper interview about the book, he said that "all Jews share a particular gene".

    The Bundesbank distanced itself from Mr Sarrazin.
    'Completely unacceptable'

    "The government views the reputation of the Bundesbank as definitely harmed, domestically and abroad, by Mr Sarrazin's comments," said Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert.

    "The Bundesbank must be concerned about this."

    On Sunday, Mrs Merkel said Mr Sarrazin's remarks were "completely unacceptable" and urged the Bundesbank to act.

    In a statement published on Monday, the Bundesbank condemned Mr Sarrazin's remarks as "discriminatory".

    It said the bank's executive board would meet with Mr Sarrazin before deciding on further measures.

    The Social Democratic Party, of which Mr Sarrazin is a long-standing member, said it was taking action to expel Mr Sarrazin.

    Mr Sarrazin has defended his comments and his writing, saying: "I can't imagine the chancellor has had the time to read my book."

    "It's very balanced," he said.

    In the book he says that Muslim immigrants are a drain on German society.

    Mr Sarrazin writes: "I don't want us to end up as strangers in our own land, not even on a regional basis."

    He also writes that "most of the cultural and economic problems are concentrated in a group of the five to six million immigrants from Muslim countries".

    Germany has more than four million Muslims, most of them of Turkish origin.

    Members of Germany's Jewish and Turkish communities have condemned the book as racist.

    Based on advance orders, it has shot to the top of Germany's sales chart.

    Is that all the news item stated? He also said he was doubtful about the possibility of genetically integrating Jews.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Good to see the book has rocketed to #5 in the sales charts

    Mind you, I don't see what's so revelatory about it. Muslims don't integrate? Did someone actually believe they did then?? Cultural and economic problems caused by Muslims? - another well-known fact, surely?

    Full marks to the bloke for putting it all into print though and I'd be interested to see what this common gene is that the Jews all have. It's most probably the GREED one although I can think of at least another half a dozen they share; none of which are particularly endearing!

    Well, the fact that they dont integrate is evident in the millions of euros which are dumped in the never ending attampt to make the public believe they are the culture enrichers that make our society so cosy and nice (not).

    It's the difference between "well known facts" and talking about well known facts. These well known facts are diametrically opposed to what our puppe...eh politicians want our country to be, and so it is of course not wanted when someone puts a big yellow sticker on it for everyone to see and recognise the problem.

    It will be interesting to watch what will happen in the next weeks. Though Sarrazin made a mistake, he's working with the NPD (or at least the NPD uses quotes from Sarrazin), so it might be easy to dismiss his statements as "confused right-winged glibberish"...

    On the other hand the NPD right now makes a big fuss about their uniting with DVU, about how they uncovered all the spies in their ranks etc. They make this all public now.

    Unless Sarrazin has some more skeletons in the closet (or an unexpected accident) to destroy him completely as a personality, methinks we see some interesting times in Germany....
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    "Condemned"? Is it just me, or is the German government and liberals acting like a certain Third Reich and dictator they claim to strongly hate and oppose?

    This political correctness makes me tired. It's getting so old, tedious and boring.

    All these people pretending to get indignant...

    I hope that as many Germans as possible learn about the case and that they decide not to vote for a party anymore which expels members who want to preserve the German people and who state the self-evident.

    Let these rotten Socialists lose their last supporters...

    Mr Sarrazin has defended his comments and his writing, saying: "I can't imagine the chancellor has had the time to read my book."

    "It's very balanced," he said.

    In the book he says that Muslim immigrants are a drain on German society.

    I hope he will keep his spine and won't apologize tomorrow!

    I get the impression there are more and more Germans in important positions who realize what's at stake and that they cannot afford to remain silent anymore -- even if it costs them their careers.

    That's a good sign!

    German Bankers and Sociological Literature

    I was wondering how long it was going to take before this news story broke here. "Germany Abolishes Itself" catchy title. As for its "rabid antisemitism and antiislamism"; I really don't think anyone has read it yet or even knows what Sarrazin has said... all the reactions appear on the surface to be nothing more than a simple knee-jerk reaction that occurs whenever the Jewish or Islamic culture is mentioned in a negative light.

    Before one comments on the book, perhaps one ought to buy it and read it. If the World does, it's going to make Sarrazin a very rich man and he certainly won't need his job at the Bundesbank. Maybe they can give it to me, I'm in need of one.

    When I surf over to Amazon.de, the two books in the "Das interessiert Kunden aktuell"-section are Sarrazin's book and... Das Ende der Geduld. Interesting.

    Apart from that, Germans really seem to be into oral hygene and Samsung mobile phones.
