Incredible. The destroyer of Germany gets another term to complete her work. The Germans have been conditioned ever since World War II to think that nationalism is evil, and it certainly was in Germany during the Nazi era. Now any defense of their country from the Muslim migrant influx that Merkel has initiated is portrayed as neo-Nazi and hence rejected. And so, before too long, there will be no Germany, or only a Sharia Germany.
“Angela Merkel elected for 4th term as German chancellor,” Associated Press, March 14, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
Germany’s parliament elected Angela Merkel for her fourth term as chancellor on Wednesday, putting an end to nearly six months of political drift in Europe’s biggest economy.
Lawmakers voted 364-315 to re-elect Angela Merkel, Germany’s leader since 2005, who ran unopposed. The coalition of Merkel’s conservative Christian Democratic Union, its Bavaria-only sister party, the Christian Social Union and the center-left Social Democrats has 399 of the 709 seats in parliament.
Merkel will head a much-changed new Cabinet, with the governing parties — which are traditional rivals — keen to send signals of renewal after a September election in which all lost significant ground. There are new faces in the most important posts, the finance, foreign, economy and interior ministries.
The same parties have governed for the past four years but putting together the new administration has been unprecedentedly hard work.
Wednesday’s parliamentary vote came 171 days after the election, nearly double the previous record. The Social Democrats initially planned to go into opposition after crashing to their worst result since World War II, but Germany’s president nudged them into a reluctant about-turn after Merkel’s talks with two smaller parties collapsed in November.
Merkel was able to take office only after two-thirds of the Social Democrats’ members approved in a ballot the coalition deal clinched last month. At least 35 coalition lawmakers didn’t support her Wednesday, though that was in line with results at the beginning of her two previous “grand coalitions” of Germany’s biggest parties….
