Angela Merkel surprised? I sure am not. Nothing, and I mean nothing was more predictable. Any blithering idiot could have accurately predicted it. Just like there are things so dumb and irrational that only a cloistered college professor could believe them, there are some political sacred cows that are so dumb and irrational that only a Leftist could believe them. I mean, do you think that is the only one, or just the only one that was caught? Just how dumb are you? This criminal stupidity, or outright malice. Is there another option?
And what will the German people do once such terrorists inevitably strike? You don’t further good behavior through stupidity and weakness. THAT is how we got NAZIs (National SOCIALISTS) in the first place, and Merkel is following the script. Stupidity breeds foes, and some may not be so benign.
Look, the National SOCIALISTS (NAZIs) were evil. But it is clear how they came about.
