‘Kandel is everywhere’ demo in Bottrop gathers thousands

In Kandel, a German town, on Saturday one of the biggest patriotic demonstrations took place against immigration, but the mainstream media either ignored it or played down the event.

    One day after the big demo in Kandel, another protest took place on 4 March in Bottrop, North Rhine-Westphalia, against the numerous assaults and rapes of women, mothers and girls in Germany.

    As in Kandel, it was a thoroughly successful demonstration, with committed speakers and a full church square. A striking feature of this protest, was again the large presence of women, joining the motto: Mothers against violence!

    The speakers called for engagement to help their own daughters who can no longer go out as carefree as before, whose safety is at risk, whose future is anything but rosy.

    In North Rhine-Westphalia almost all jihadist returnees from Syria and Iraq are on the loose. Only one in five have been imprisoned.

    A better and safer future for Germany should include men from all walks of life the participants said. Men were represented in great numbers too and repeatedly applauded the ladies at the microphone.

    The tenor of the speeches was also present on the posters and placards: “Fear is not right!”, “Safety for the women!”, “Merkel has to go!” and “For freedom, for security, against Merkel’s irresponsible experiments!”

    And a favourite one read: “Against the flooding of Germany by uncontrolled migrants from countries that have no respect for the equal rights of women.”

    The scandal of the event was that the troops of counter-demonstrators were again allowed to within a few feet of the demonstration. Barriers and police however made sure that there were no skirmishes, instead only insults were traded.

    The women from both Kandel and Bottrop ignored Nazi and racist allegations. Applause came instead from the thousands of participants in the demonstration for the slogan “Kandel is everywhere”. Everyone agreed: Islam does not belong in Germany.

    Antifa surrogate Christine Heil, denounced the protesters. “We must not ignore the public rightwing political spectrum, which fuels fears of foreigners,” she said. And then, disappointed, she added: “There are also many secret supporters of the AfD.”

    In a Compact-TV reportage on Kandel, Jürgen Elsässer, an anti-immigration journalist, said the SPD had become a “party of Islamization” and in contrast to the highly migration-critical former Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, the socialists have shredded “the ruins of their better past”.

    He called the go-ahead for a German coalition government between Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Union and the SPD, or Groko a “decision to commit suicide out of fear of death”.

    Andrea Nahles, the new SPD leader, could compete with Angela Merkel for the “Cup of Political Ugliness”, he said. Together with the “rest of this unspeakable pants suit brigade” who promote Islamization, the contempt of their own people and leniency for honor killers and criminals, he added.

    Two weeks ago, Compact TV detailed a report of a similar women’s demonstration in Berlin.

    The SPD has meanwhile called for the German national anthem to be genderized. The Equal Opportunity Commissioner of the Ministry of Family Affairs, Christine Rose-Möhring (SPD), wants to change the text from fatherland to “homeland” and from brotherly to “courageous”.
