Germans turn against Merkel over Muslim migrants


“Germany’s patience with migration is wearing thin in the wake of migrant sexual assaults and terror attacks, a devastating new poll has revealed,” turning her often-repeated phrase “we can do it” on its head.

The YouGov tracker poll shows that 66 percent of Germans no longer welcome migrants.

The inability of Germany to integrate the influx has also caused concern, with the shock revelation this week that the top 30 German companies had employed just 54 migrants.

More than one million arrived in Germany last year, and just yesterday it was revealed that some German asylum seekers refused to work, saying “We are Merkel’s guests.”

A revealing article also reported that EU officials have discovered “that most of the ‘refugees’ are not refugees. What a mess.”

refugees-623651“‘Refugees NOT welcome’ as 66% of Germans turn on Merkel over migrants”, by Paul Christian, UK Express, August 19, 2016:

In a nightmare scenario for German chancellor Angela Merkel, her oft-repeated phrase “we can do it”, in relation to absorbing hundreds of thousands of migrants, has been widely derided.

A YouGov tracker poll revealed how two out of three Germans don’t agree with the phrase, which now haunts Mrs Merkel, as the country creaks under the pressure of waves of newcomers.

Political opponents like the anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany (AfD), have also thrown the soundbite back in her face and garnered huge numbers of new supporters in the process.

A YouGov poll showed how 66 per cent of those polled did not agree with Merkel’s boast, up from 51 percent last September.

The growing resentment towards the German leader could threaten her grip on power, with elections set for autumn next year.

As her authority ebbed away Mrs Merkel was even criticised from within her own Christian Democrats party, with MEP Karl-Georg Wellmann saying: “Many of our voters understand it as if we could, indefinitely, continue to take in more people.

“Chancellor Merkel might not even mean to say that, but this is how it’s being perceived — and that’s why people I meet in my constituency tell me that they are just sick of hearing that sentence.”

AfD deputy leader Alexander Gauland received a rapturous reception at a rally in August last year when he yelled: “We don’t want to do this, at all.”

At the time the party was polling at just three per cent, by June this year it had surged to 14 per cent.

The inability of Germany to integrate the influx has also caused concern, with the shock revelation this week that the top 30 German companies had employed just 54 migrants.

More than one million migrants arrived in Germany last year, with a third of them refugees from Syria.

Merkel has increasingly come under fire for her immigration policies which have seen around 16,000 refugees arrive in Germany every month.

She has faced a backlash and seen her popularity among voters nosedive, with many blaming her open door refugee policy for a spate of terror attacks in Germany…
