The Future belongs to those who show up: Totally Unrelated Update

Guess who’s show­ing up in Germany

Of course if Europe in gen­eral & Ger­many in par­tic­u­lar was what it once was, Prac­tic­ing chris­tians who were fruit­ful and mul­ti­plied, then it wouldn’t mat­ter how many refugees came in, there would be a con­fi­dent Pop­u­la­tion of Euro­peans who would insist that new immi­grants assim­i­late or at least respect their laws and customs.

But I guess a half cen­tury of know­ing that peo­ple from half an ocean away will do your fight­ing and even your pray­ing for you does that to a soci­ety. Of course it beats World wars doesn’t it?

Update: I’m sure this story is totally unre­lated to the last one:

Con­firm­ing polling which shows that the AfD have hugely increased their share of the vote since Ger­many decided to open its doors to refugees in late August 2015, the right-​wing party won on aver­age 13.2 per­cent of votes at local elec­tion in the cen­tral Ger­man state of Hesse on Sunday.

This result made the AfD the third largest party behind Chan­cel­lor Angela Merkel’s Chris­t­ian Demo­c­ra­tic Union (CDU) and the Social Demo­c­ra­tic Party (SPD), who won 28.2 per­cent and 28.0 per­cent respec­tively, Hes­sis­cher Rund­funk reports.

Not bad for a party that was once a non entity, I won­der what changed their fortunes?

Guess who’s showing up in Germany

Of course if Europe in general & Germany in particular was what it once was, Practicing christians who were fruitful and multiplied, then it wouldn’t matter how many refugees came in, there would be a confident Population of Europeans who would insist that new immigrants assimilate or at least respect their laws and customs.

But I guess a half century of knowing that people from half an ocean away will do your fighting and even your praying for you does that to a society. Of course it beats World wars doesn’t it?

Update: I’m sure this story is totally unrelated to the last one:

Confirming polling which shows that the AfD have hugely increased their share of the vote since Germany decided to open its doors to refugees in late August 2015, the right-wing party won on average 13.2 percent of votes at local election in the central German state of Hesse on Sunday.

This result made the AfD the third largest party behind Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Social Democratic Party (SPD), who won 28.2 percent and 28.0 percent respectively, Hessischer Rundfunk reports.

Not bad for a party that was once a non entity, I wonder what changed their fortunes?
