German Chancellor Angela Merkel says her attempt to create a multicultural society has “utterly failed,” and that too little had been required of immigrants who refuse to integrate into German culture. 

Merkel told an audience of young members of her Christian Democrats (CDU) that allowing people of differing cultural backgrounds to live side by side without such integration was a huge mistake, according to Reuters, which notes that approximately four million Muslims live in the country.

This (multicultural) approach has failed, utterly failed,” said Merkel during the meeting in Potsdam, south of Berlin.

Merkel faces pressure from within her CDU to take a tougher line on immigrants who don’t show a willingness to adapt to German society and her comments appeared intended to pacify her critics.

She said too little had been required of immigrants in the past and repeated her usual line that they should learn German in order to get by in school and have opportunities on the labor market. –Reuters

The stunning admission comes weeks after the former director of Germany’s foreign intelligence service,  Dr August Hanning, suggested Merkel had created a “security crisis” in Germany due to her open-border policy. (Summit News)

“We have seen the consequences of this decision in terms of German public opinion and internal security – we experience problems very day,” he said.

“We have criminals, terrorist suspects and people who use multiple identities. Those who carried out the Berlin attacks used 12 different identities,” added Hanning.

“While things are tighter today, we still have 300,000 people in Germany of whose identities we cannot be sure. That’s a massive security risk,” he warned.

Merkel has been treading a fine line between German nationalists and Islam – telling natives to accept that mosques are now a part of their landscape, though also saying on Saturday that the education of unemployed Germans should take precedent over that of foreign workers (though adding that Germany couldn’t get by without skilled foreign workers).

And while the German chancellor speaks out of one side of her mouth, her Labor Minister Ursula von der Leyen (CDU) suggested that the country should lower the barriers to entry for foreign workers in order to supplement the country’s lack of skilled labor. 

“For a few years, more people have been leaving our country than entering it,” she told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, adding “Wherever it is possible, we must lower the entry hurdles for those who bring the country forward.”

Christian Social Union (CSU) chairman Horst Seehofer, meanwhile, rejects all attempts to relax immigraion laws, saying last week that Germany has no more room for people from “alien cultures.” 

According to the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), Germany lacks approximately 400,000 skilled workers.

  1. Most likely Merkel is trying to avoid being assassinated by playing both sides.

    As if the witch didn’t know what the outcome would be……
    The “democratically elected” Trudeau is now wearing a bullet proof vest in public….some democracy…”elected by popular will”….like hell.
    The elites policies of multiculturalism are coming home to roost…..not surprisingly considering the voters were NEVER CONSULTED OVER HAVING THEIR COUNTRY FLOODED WITH ALIEN IMMIGRANTS….only indoctrinated by the elites media.It will be a great day when one of these politician whores is assassinated it might give the others a hint as to what is coming their way if they continue to ignore the populace.

  2. Yeah yeah give em more much more. More skilled terrorists who can street sweep on their days off.
    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of people.

  3. Churchill in w w 2 was informed that he was in great danger of assassination by his own people. for his lies treachury and selling out his own people into 2 world wars.
    His main body guard Walter Thompson said Churchill never appeared in public and used body doubles, even his radio spoeeches were done by an actor as he was said by Patric Kinna to be permanently drunk.
    It was an appaling and vicious act of pure racism on our own people to flood the UK with alien migrants after the war

  4. Angela “Hitler” Merkel knew it would fail, like her dad Adolf knew that Germany would lose the war and be destroyed; those were the whole ideas:
