Never let an opportunity to push your agenda go to waste, no matter how poor in taste. Nothing better to mobilize people than to wave a blood-stained shirt.

Really funny that one considering that SUV are as large and heavy as a type 7 BMW or a Mercedes S class.

In related news highlighting the professionalism of politicians:

Well, expecting professionalism at the "village spokesperson" level (not even small town mayor) is a tad ambitious. Seven peeps had to pick someone, and he happened to be the sole candidate volunteering. It would have been nice if the others had shown a minimum of sensitivity in the matter, but at the same time this is being blown a bit out of proportion, really.

For one it is out of porportion and he was the only one who can use email to communincate with higher echelons of administration. No, really. :D

 

 

"Da wir keinen anderen haben – vor allem keinen Jüngeren, der sich mit Computern auskennt, der Mails verschicken kann." Und Szielasko sagte weiter: "Was er in der Partei macht oder privat, das ist nicht mein Ding, nicht unser Ding." Im Ortsbeirat verhalte er sich "absolut kollegial und ruhig".

 

"Because we don't have anyone else, especially a younger computer user who can send mail." And Szielasko continued: "What he does in the party or privately, that is not my thing, not our thing". In the local advisory council he behaves "absolutely collegially and calmly".

Not that professionalism. The other one, as in: "Who is the person we are electing?"

At the village level, it's all about interpersonal relations, not party affiliation. If you're a neo Nazi but not running around with a baseball bat and in combat boots, possibly with your posse of wannabe SS men in tow, and if you can keep your tongue in check most of the time you can be mistaken for a nice guy, or at least for a sorta-kinda acceptable one if there are no others to choose from.

 

 

Still not saying that it was a good idea to elect him but I can see how it can happen. Non-Nazi parties have to ask themselves if they did enough to prevent this, but this falls squarely back at the village itself. You only have a limited pool of volunteers to draw from. Anyone in the village now "feeling ashamed" as some said in interviews need to ask themselves why they didn't volunteer for election. Democracy hands the power to the population, but in return it expects a population that is rising to the challenge.

Haha, at my new job most of my colleagues are former East Berliners/Germans, and Union fans almost to the last man, and woman. This crowd is every bit as crazy as they say. The day after Union made the Federal League was hungover madness at the office. :D

The 18th Shell Youth Study which has surveyed attitudes of young Germans aged 12 to 27 since 1953 (recently every four year) asked for common populist convictions for the first time. Much bewilderment in media that among "Generation Greta" which skips school every Friday to protest against climate change, 68 percent also agree that "you can't say anything bad about foreigners in Germany without being framed as a racist", 53 percent that "the government is hiding the truth from the population", more than half that the German state cares more about refugees than needy Germans, and about a third that Germany is being subverted by Islam. Personally, I don't see the contradiction. :D

When you cannot see the contradiction you will have to attend reeducation to finally see the mainstream wisdom!

The 2019 issue of the annual "Berlin Monitor" surveying popular attitudes in the city has a focus on anti-Semitism, also comparing some of its findings for Berlin with a recent national study by the SPD-affiliated Friedrich Ebert Foundation (full version). People were asked to answer seven questions with five options ranging from 1 - "completely reject" to 5 - "fully agree". Options 1 and 2 were considered a rejection of anti-Semitism, 3 and 4 an indication of latent, and 5 of manifest agreement. Three questions each covered traditional and Israel-related anti-Semitism, plus one specifically addressing secondary anti-Semitism related to rejection of German guilt over the Holocaust.

 

Another take from the World Jewish Congress, with slightly higher national numbers. Full survey is here.

 

Date 24.10.2019

 

Author Rebecca Staudenmaier

 

One in four Germans hold anti-Semitic beliefs, study finds

 

More than a quarter of Germans surveyed said they agreed with anti-Semitic statements, including that Jews have "too much power over the economy." Over 40% said they thought Jews "talk about the Holocaust too much."

 

Anti-Semitism is gaining a stronger foothold in German society, the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper reported on Wednesday, citing a new study from the World Jewish Congress (WJC).

 

Out of the 1,300 Germans who took part in the representative survey, 27% agreed with a range of anti-Semitic statements and stereotypes about Jewish people.

 

Some 41% said they agreed with the statement that "Jews talk about the Holocaust too much." The same portion said they believed "Jews are more loyal to Israel than to Germany."

 

Over 20% of respondents said they agreed that Jewish people have "too much power" over the economy, international financial markets and the media. Another 22% agreed that "people hate Jews due to the way they behave."

 

The survey was carried out two months ago, prior to the anti-Semitic attack targeting a synagogue in the eastern German city of Halle.

 

Hostility towards Jews growing among 'elites'

 

Anti-Semitism is also growing among the wealthy and well-educated, according to the study.

 

The WJC found that 18% of "elites" — respondents with at least one university degree who make at least €100,000 ($111,300) per year — agreed with anti-Semitic sentiments.

 

Within that group, over a quarter said they believed Jewish people have "too much power over world politics" and the economy.

 

[...]

 

Resistance rises

 

While anti-Semitism is spreading in Germany, the study found that the readiness to combat it is also growing.

 

Two thirds of "elites" said they would sign a petition against anti-Semitism, while a third of all the respondents said they were willing to take part in demonstrations against anti-Semitism.

 

The vast majority of respondents recognized there was a rise in hostile behavior toward Jewish people in Germany, with 65% saying that rise was tied to the success of "right-wing extremist parties."

 

One in four respondents said it was possible that "something like the Holocaust could happen in Germany again."
