The Merkel Myth

Imagine this:

A politician spends 10 years doing everything they can to stop their country from legalizing gay marriage. Despite the majority of their country wanting it approved, they make sure that their party remains opposed and blocks any efforts to pass it.

At the same time as they oppose gay marriage, they spend years implementing policies that enrich the economic elites of their country, at the expense of their poorer neighbours, crushing the hopes of millions of working class people and pushing countless people into poverty.

And then, imagine that the same politician imposes massive spending cuts to health services, education, infrastructure, pensions, and more on those poorer countries, driving them further into poverty and subservience – all to benefit foreign countries and some of the largest global banks on earth.

Who am I talking about?

Donald Trump?

Republicans in the US?

Nope.

I’m talking about German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The Merkel Myth

Everything I mentioned above was done by Angela Merkel. She has opposed gay marriage for a decade, and voted against it when it recently passed in Germany. She has pushed policies in the Eurozone that benefits Germany’s manufacturing sector and large corporations at the expense of Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, and other EU nations. She imposed massive austerity upon them – austerity far more strict than even the most right-wing proposal in the United States.

And yet, Angela Merkel is being held up as the “defender of the liberal order.”

It’s an absolute joke, yet the global elites expect us to take it seriously.

Globalism vs Nationalism

Why are the elites pushing the Merkel Myth?

The reason is that Angela Merkel is a committed globalist, and she governs an economically powerful country. Therefore, she is useful in the effort to remove national borders and any sense of patriotism or loyalty to nations-states.

Merkel is also a proponent of policies that further concentrate wealth and power in a small elite – which is much easier to do when nation-states are weakened and international banks, corporations, and centralized bureaucracies hold all the power.

Calling Merkel the defender of a “liberal” order is part of a longer-term trend in the destruction of what “liberalism” once stood for. There was a time when Liberalism was about individual freedom, decentralizing power, freedom of speech, and economic opportunity.

It has now morphed into an ideology that is about suppressing free speech, imposing massive regulations, centralizing wealth and power, and collectivism.

It is a fact that in some ways, Donald Trump is more traditionally “liberal” than Angela Merkel. Trump was the most pro-LGBT Republican presidential candidate in US history – even holding up a rainbow flag at a rally – and has shown no real interest in opposing gay marriage. His focus on working class jobs was once something that “liberal” politicians would have supported. He has slashed regulations and seeks to decentralize power by pushing more decision making onto the states.

And – despite constant discussion about his tweets – Trump has made no tangible moves towards restricting free speech in the United States, while Germany is constantly imposing new restrictions on what their citizens can say – leading to people being arrested over Facebook posts.

Yet, because Angela Merkel favours open-borders and the weakening of national governments, she is held up as the “defender” of “liberalism.”

It’s nothing more than a media myth being pushed by the establishment, and it is a deception meant to cover up the true agenda of those in power.

That’s why we must always look past the image being presented to us in the elitist media, and see the truth behind it. The Merkel Myth is one of many lies we are told on a regular basis, and we must push back against those lies every chance we get.

The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.

That’s why I write.

Thank you Mr. Fernando spotlighting the push for Globalism Agenda – this drive being forced upon those is creating incredible social/economic unrest in an increasingly unstable, ever-changing world.

Thankyou Spencer for revealing the truth. We must act on theses truths to be set free. To quote Goethe, one of Merkel’s countrymen, ” Knowing is not enough, we must apply; willing I not enough, we must do”.
