The Slow Death of Europe By Dumbing Down

A nation that produces nothing to sell is a nation that will become bankrupt.

Britain has become a globalised country dependent on global capitalism via the financial services and banking, and hence produces nothing but depends on usury for its income.

A nation that imports in immigrants that refuse to integrate, to become educated, to gain modern technological skills and to become employed in industry and manufacturing are a drain on the nation.

We need a high skills, hi-tech industrial and manufacturing base staffed with skilled and highly trained people, not cheap labour with low IQ's from around the world.

One in five Germans say they would vote for banker who outraged country with slurs on Jews and Muslims

Support: If Thilo Sarrazin set up his own new political party, almost one in five (18 per cent) would vote for him

Support: If Thilo Sarrazin set up his own new political party, almost one in five (18 per cent) would vote for him

One-in-five Germans say they would vote for a party headed by banker Thilo Sarrazin who has polarised the country with his book on Muslims and immigration.

Despite the best efforts of mainstream politicians to demonise the Bundesbank board member he has struck a disturbing chord among his countrymen with a message that Germany is 'dumbing down' due to immigration.

As the country‘s central bank prepares to fire him - and his own SPD social democrat party is poised to expel him - Sarrazin‘s book has gone to the top of the best seller charts.

Although Muslims from Turkey and other lands built the post-WW2 ‘economic miracle‘ Sarrazin accused them of failing to integrate, having too many children and achieving poor levels of education.

His book, Germany Does Away With Itself‚ is particularly popular among both left-wing and conservative voters.

In it Mr Sarrazin says that Muslim immigrants are a drain on German society and writes: 'most of the cultural and economic problems are concentrated in a group of the five to six million immigrants from Muslim countries'.

He adds: 'I don't want us to end up as strangers in our own land, not even on a regional basis.'

But more recently he has caused widespread outrage by saying that 'all Jews share a particular gene'.

This has horrified the political elites which have struggled since the end of the war to portray former Nazi Germany as a tolerant and liberal land.

'For them, Sarrazin is somebody who is finally saying what many are thinking,' said the head of pollsters Emnid, Klaus-Peter Schoeppner, which carried out the survey for the Bild am Sonntag newspaper about support for Sarrazin, 65.

Headline about Thilo Sarrazin

Sarrazin, meanwhile, has had to have police guards after immigrants posted death threats against him.

He likened the wave of criticism of him to a 'political show trial.'

He said if German President Christian Wulff approved his sacking from the Bundesbank in the next few days, as is likely, the courts would overturn it.

'The president will have to consider carefully whether he wants to see this political show trial to its end, and then see his decision thrown out by the courts,' Sarrazin said.

The debate that his book - and popular support - has engendered is a problem that Chancellor Angela Merkel‘s conservative-liberal coalition government as yet doesn‘t have an answer to.

The left-wing newspaper Die Tageszeitung wrote: 'The Sarrazin case is a healthy shock for Germany.

'It is high time to rid ourselves of the illusion that racist convictions always arrive in bomber jackets and combat boots.

'As we see, they can also thrive splendidly in bankers’ suits and on executive floors.'

What a pity the DM didn't consider the substance of Mr Sarrazin's book worthy of inclusion in their article, because it is the main reason why he has been subject to such outrage from the left.

It is because as a nationally respected economist his critique of immigration is founded on sound economic reasoniong, and has nothing to do with "genes" or anything else.

What he says, in brief, is that Germany's (and by extension Europe's) prosperity and standard of living is based on them having technicians, specialists and engineers who can produce goods and services the world wants.

The Muslim communities' unwillingness to integrate, is most prominently displayed in a lack of participation in the educational process. Such individuals likely to be demographically highly significant in coming years, will be incapable of filling these roles.

The Economic consequences for Germany will be profound.
It's prosperity will simply evaporate.
