Another food bank fingered: ‘In Germany nobody is allowed to tell the truth’

The board of the Fulda Tafel has rejected allegations that migrants are displacing German pensioners and single women, but supporters say they are not being honest.

    “We have no problems and certainly not by Essen standards,” the board told the news portal Osthessen News on Wednesday.

    Previously, the president of the Rotary Club Fulda-Paulstor, Michael Imhof, complained at a charity concert for the Fulda Tafel that the institution had to deal with problems caused by the migrant influx.

    On Thursday he affirmed this and criticised the repeated suppression of news. “In Germany, meanwhile, nobody is allowed to tell the truth without being convicted. It’s kind of like DDR 2.0,” he told the news site.

    He is a member of the Fulda Tafel and he knows the statistics very well. “The Board of Directors repeatedly claims that the proportion of customers with a migration background is 40 percent. But that’s not true,” explained Imhof.

    Actually, more than 50 percent of the needy are foreigners. “I do not know why this is not clearly communicated to the outside world and I find the actions of those responsible just not adequate,” he said.

    Within a year, the proportion of German customers had fallen by half. “There are some people who do not dare to go to the food bank anymore because they were pushed or insulted by refugee men. Especially pensioners or single women are really scared.”

    Volunteers had told him that young immigrants sometimes came by car to the food bank to fetch food. They have a consumerist attitude towards the charity. What they do not like is simply thrown in the trash.

    “In the past, there were incidents of refugees picking up food, only to later resell it to the truly needy.”

    The charity has meanwhile hired a bouncer. “The refugees do not care if they are fourth or twelfth in line. There is pressure to just grab what is available.”

    An employee of the Fulda Tafel denied these claims on Thursday at the request of German magazine Junge Freiheit. “That’s all nonsense.” The board is sticking to its statement from Wednesday they said.
